I noticed. Sasha, Jordan, and Trevor disappear when we play on the road against tough teams. Did they do anything against Boston and Cleveland?

But their trash talk has added to the hurt Kobe and D-Fish have from getting their [expletive] kicked by Utah their first two years..[expletive] utah!! let's go lakers!!!

Scouting Report Lakers at Jazz

Wednesday, Feb 11

The ability to stay focused for the last test before a vacation is what separates the good students from the bad. As we prepare for our last game before the All-Star break there are a bunch of excuses. It’s on the road…It’s the second night of a back-to-back…Post road trip hangover…Waaaa Waaaa Waaaa. Either we will bring the correct mental and physical energy required to win in Salt Lake City or we will suffer a big defeat. The team we are facing is a familiar foe so there shouldn’t be any surprises in terms of what we will see once the ball is tossed up.

There were a few areas from the first game against the Jazz (on January 2nd) that we can make note of and try to improve in order to secure a victory in a tough road environment. The first is that we need to a better job on the boards. We gave up 19 offensive rebounds for the game (8 to Millsap). Overall we were out-rebounded 51-46. That simply will not get the job done.


In that game at Staples Center we jumped on them early and took a 17 point lead at the end of the first quarter. The Jazz did not roll over and made a few comebacks so we know that no matter what we are in for a 48 minute battle. The game was as close as 6 points with about two and a half minutes left. We must be ready to do the job from opening tip to final buzzer.



The last aspect from the January game that we must improve is our defense against their “4 X” or 5 X” play. This is a simple screen and roll – any Utah action with an ‘X’ at the end of it means there is a screen and roll coming. The number 4 or 5 designates which side of the floor and then it is simply a screen and roll at the elbow with the strong side cleared. There is an option to re-pick if they want to. They ran this specific play a number of times in a row and our poor defensive effort (both mentally and physically) allowed them to score often. Coach Sloan will repeat plays until the defense stops it so we must be ready to stop it or we will see it all night.


Offensively, we know that the Jazz will pack the paint and attack any penetration whether through the dribble drive or on the pass or post up. This sets up nicely for some great drive and dish opportunities. Our post players must be ready for the small guards to dig down and try to get steals. Once again it is important that we stay in the moment and take care of the task at hand. We must pass this last test before we start the next – extremely important – semester.

Expect a big game from LO again, predicting 19 pts, 12 boards.

Lakers- 110

Jazz- 100

It's showtime.
"If you could stop all the players that get publicized and all the players that the NBA likes and all the players, you know, the players that win the MVP's, you know, for their offense. And some of them, you know, play pretty good defense too. But some of them, you know, they like "this guy he can shoot, he can score, he can dunk." and I want to be the one to stop all those guys, you know, and just kinda spoil the whole party." - Ron Artest

Always fun to go into Utah and play - Kobe should dominate them as he usually does. I'm worried about Okur being left open and Williams kicking our [expletive], but hopefully our guys step it up. We have no excuse not to win this game.

Kobe - stop roaming and play some defense. Brewer and Miles should not have 11 combined points already.
