Lamar Odom Discusses Lakers Loss, Feeling "Embarrassed" After Being Ejected From Game

Odom was whistled for a flagrant foul after blindsiding Mav's Dirk Nowitzki with 9:06 remaining in the fourth.

Odom tells the Los Angeles Times:

    "I was a little embarrassed. I went to fill the rim out [with the free throw attempt], they were already up 30 [when Nowitzki batted the ball away] and I didn't mean anything by it."

Lakers coach Phil Jackson had the following to say about Lamar's fouls.

    "I wasn't happy with the way our players exited the game on Lamar and Andrew's part. It was unnecessary, but I know they were frustrated and Barea was one of the guys that really frustrated us today."

Better luck next year! Read what Lakers' player Andrew Bynum had to say about his foul ... after the jump.

Bynum says:

    "We were getting embarrassed, they were breaking us down. So I just fouled somebody. I was just kind of salty about being embarrassed. ... For me, it was embarrassing to have the smallest guy on the court keep running down the lane and making shots."
