L.A. Times: Losses don’t happen often to the Lakers, but there’s often something interesting to come out of them.
After their 102-94 defeat Saturday against the Utah Jazz, forward Pau Gasol wanted more touches.
He made a plea for more action in the post after being asked how it felt to collect 20 rebounds for a second consecutive game.
“I’m just being active, pursuing the ball,” he said. “I don’t get many looks offensively, so I’ve got to get my offensive rebounds. Otherwise, I’ll get five shots during the game. I’m trying to get my looks there, and I work hard and stay active and do what I can.”
Good thing for him that he’s rebounding a lot.
Gasol’s back-to-back rebounding efforts made him only the third Lakers player in the last 14 years to take 20-plus rebounds in consecutive games, joining Lamar Odom and Vlade Divac.
