How bad did it get for the bench mob's formerly made men? Luke Walton led all pine scorers with six points, and required nine shots to make that happen. But with six assists, five rebounds, a steal and some pretty consistent activity, he was the least of the bench's concerns. Josh Powell hasn't drained a field goal attempt since March 26th against Detroit and brought little to the table this evening. But in a perfect world (one where Andrew Bynum is soon available), he'd only play spot minutes in a limited role. There's only so much one should regularly expect from a career journeyman with a limited game.


I don't think Brown's PT was a "message" to "motivate" Farmar. I think he's sincerely looking for answers. And if there is one potential upside to falling further behind the race with Cleveland for home court throughout the playoffs, it's that, assuming distance is maintained between Boston and Orlando, Phil will get the chance- hopefully utilized- to Gasol, LO, Derek Fisher and Kobe. Unless he opts to play Farmar/Vujacic 25-30 minutes, that should guarantee Brown will hit the floor. If he can find a way to click quickly, it wouldn't shock me if Jordan or Sasha see their minutes drop.

And here’s the other reason it’s time for Bynum: Isn’t everyone getting a little sick of watching the bench play as it is currently constructed?

Jackson certainly is. Even though Jordan Farmar had a decent game Sunday night against the Clippers – shaking off two missed jumpers and staying aggressive thereafter – Jackson gave Farmar an abrupt hook with 4:50 left and the Lakers ahead by 14 points.

Farmar made a mindless turnover, his only one of the game against five assists, trying to force-feed the post, which triggered a Clippers fast break.

Farmar later argued about it with Jackson, as has happened often this season. Soon it was Sasha Vujacic’s turn to feel Jackson’s wrath – yelled at for being in no man’s land on defense, neither double-teaming Zach Randolph in the post nor sticking to Fred Jones on the perimeter before Randolph passed and Jones made a 3-pointer.

Will Lamar Odom returning to the bench really make a considerable difference? Sure, he's a super-sub, but L.O. will be the only reliable bench player for the Lakers. Sasha Vujacic's woes continue, Farmar is doing horrible, Luke Walton's been alright, and Josh Powell has played exceptional basketball this season off-the-bench. Lamar will certainly add a spark and a sense of urgency to the unit, but face it, people, last year's athletic and energetic Bench Mob is gone. The can certainly make an impact, but I do not see the bench returning to it's 2008 stage. What is up with Sasha, anyways? His ankle? :angry:

I think moving Ariza and Odom back to the bench once Bynum comes back will help us out greatly, but until Farmar learns that he isn't a jumpshooter, and Sasha decides to wake up, our bench is no where near as great as it once was.

minus shannon and luke they were still awful during meaningful portions of the game shannon was 3 for 5 and luke was 3 of 4 in meaningful minutes the bench was 9 of 20. so luke and shannon combined were about 6-9 while the rest were 3-11
