28% shooting for Kobe tonight? only 32 off 50. I wonder when Kobe's gonna' shoot at least 43% or higher again. Someone told me recently it was against Dallas last time, but it sure feels like much longer.
Last time this team played really well was against Dallas. Gasol specifically. Gasol hasn't really had a GOOD game like that since then and it ain't like he isn't being set up for those same shots. He is, he just isn't hitting. And defensively he has no rebounding efforts, offensively either. We need effort on the glass by more than just Bynum if we're gonna be effective. We were GREAT at stopping OKC on the first shot and even sometimes on the second shot but NOT getting the rebounds is key to our demise there.
Someone needs to get into Gasol's ear about that.
The one factor everyone is ignoring is that Gasol got into foul trouble 2 minutes into the 3rd Quarter and had to sit the entire quarter after that.
