Farmar’s aggressive play helps Lakers

90040984JG012_OKLAHOMA_CITYL.A. Times: For Jordan Farmar, the key word was “aggressive.”

He was aggressive on offense, attacking the rim, pulling up for three-pointers.

He was aggressive on defense, hustling to block a shot, getting in the passing lane during the Lakers’ 106-87 rout of the New Jersey Nets on Sunday night at Staples Center.

“I just tried to stay positive and stay aggressive the whole time,” Farmar said.

He was, scoring a season-high 15 points. He made a season-high six field goals out of nine attempts. He was three for four from three-point range.

“I’ve been having some good looks the last couple of weeks,” Farmar said. “They haven’t been going in for me, going in and out, a little short, a little long.

“But I’ve been in the gym every night making thousands of shots every day. If I’m going to miss those open looks, I know they’ll start going down. I’m just staying aggressive.”

      Aggressive is the key word
      Not who he played
      He had good stroke and never gave up on a play
      Thats pure hussle.
      if your shots wont go in with the NETS it wont go in
      no matter how good of a team it is.
      Give him credit. He hussled and played aggresive.
      Repeat.

    I really do think he has alot of potential, remember in the houston playoff game where he started for Fisher, he played very well because he knew that he was going to get more minutes,and now he is not playing alot of minutes so its harder for him to get in the rhythm, and as you saw against the Nets Phil let him played alot more min. for longer periods of time and has became more comfortable, he just needs more opportunity to show his skill

    Yo, say what you will about his game or shots, but his block on Rafer “Skip to My Lou” Alston was BAD FCUKIN ASS! He ran him down from the Lakers’ free throw line and got that nasty block! That’s HIGHLIGHT REEL BABY!
