Good to know they’re focusing on the right things. I think video is the best thing for this team.
Pasadena Star News: Lakers coach Phil Jackson held a video session that lasted for about 90 minutes and then the team worked out for another 90 minutes or so on the practice court at the Time Warner Cable Arena, home of the Charlotte Bobcats.
“Execution,” Jackson said when asked about the focus of the video session.
No, Jackson did not wish to put his players to death in the wake of their worst game of the season Sunday in Atlanta. He merely pointed out ways to improve before they return to the court tonight to face the up-and-coming Bobcats.
“It’s always about execution,” Jackson said.
The Lakers were out of sync for most of Sunday’s 86-76 loss to the Hawks. They had season lows with 13 points in the first quarter and 76 in the game. They also shot only 35 percent from the floor.
About the Bobcats
Charlotte leads the all-time series, 5-4, and joins Boston as the only teams in the NBA with winning records against the Lakers.
The Bobcats beat the Lakers, 117-110, in double overtime on Jan. 27 at Staples Center.
Jackson, asked what he remembered about the game, said, “Nothing.”
