Great win guys, but lets not put too much emphasis. Pierce was sick and 3 other guys were out for them although we didnt have Barnes and Theo. But nevertheless, a great road win. We would have won by double digits easily had we shot better on free throws. We really need to poractice those. That could be the difference between us Threepeating and losing.

Nice to get a little redemption on the road. Good defense in the second half. And good strategy by Phil, giving Kobe and Pau enough rest, so they would be fresh to close the game in the fourth. Any time we get a win in Boston, it's a good thing. Not a bad night by Drew. This is what he can bring us, he just needs to stay healthy, becasue I would rather have a healthy Bynum then Melo at this point.

Bynum supporters getting pissed when Kobe takes one three, but they didn't care to talk about a few things Drew did poorly throughout the game?

Aside from that, good game by Drew. He still holds the ball too long in the post, and lacks offensive awareness. Late rotations (obvious). However, he still takes high percentage shots and doesn't mind getting physical.

Ron played good defense on a sick Pierce. PP34 was less physical this game, when compared to the first meeting, so I'm not going to go too far with the praise. Offensively, Ron is still irrelevant.

Gasol played more physical basketball tonight, and it worked well for him AND for us. Mind-blowing? Hardly.

Odom wasn't hitting anything from the floor in the first half, but he stepped up his game and did the right things to pull out a win despite the struggles.

Bryant was intentionally passing the ball in the first half...not to send a message, but to get others involved. He does it a lot, especially this season. I don't agree with it, though, because these guys should be mentally tough, and they need to realize what needs to be done, in their set roles, to win a game. The passive first half didn't work, but aggressive Kobe (20 in the second half) put Boston in a hole.

When our guys are actively pursuing the ball, running into the lane (ex. Kobe's pass to a cutting Gasol), and our post players are playing in the low post, the Lakers are very difficult to stop, and it's all because teams can't center their defense around Bryant's attack.

We didn't need our size to beat the Celtics, we needed to rotate on defense, close out on shooters, and knock down shots ourselves and move without the ball. Gasol can play deep enough in the post...we don't need a prime Shaq to get it done. Boston is the worst rebounding team in the NBA, and with us having an abnormally large frontcourt, we still give up easy boards because our bigs decline to box out or jump for boards.

Basketball isn't a hard game to figure out. We won the game with activity, on offense and defense. Moving without the ball, closing out on shooters, playing physical despite how big you are, and feeling like you're defending your NBA championship. Star-gazing when Kobe has the ball in his hands gets this team nowhere, and it doesn't matter if it's Bryant, LeBron, Wade, Magic or Jordan.

Hopefully, this game wasn't won due to the trade rumors surrounding half of our team. Knicks tomorrow, Magic Sunday...rough road ahead.

You know what I'm gonna say
Bynum needs to pass
Big enough to see over any defense to hit cutters......but he catches the goes to the basket or pass it into a passing lane to someone whos not cutting or to the other team.
If this dude ever started averaging 3-4 assists a game it would create blowouts for us. He would face fewer DTs and hitting Kobe and the like in stride would cause hell
IF ONLY HE COULD PASS

Interesting fact: The Celtics are 0-3 against us at home in regular season games since 07-08. :shifty:

How do you figure? They beat Miami twice already and both Allen and Pierce had good games.

that was early in the season when Lebron and Wade didn't have a clue on how to play off each other. And they had Marquis Daniels healthy...im not saying he's a big difference maker, just saying the defensive intensity doesn't drop off when Allen or Pierce go out and when Daniels is in the game. They've always had that 3rd perimeter guard/forward off the bench to defend the perimeter players and give them some breathing room. They're gonna get worn down and in foul trouble.
