yeah Blake sucks but he didn't suck too much last night. He only guarded Dragic for 10 minutes and gave up two baskets during that tiime. A jumper and a short shot in the key. Dragic did the majority of scoring on sessions and whoever tried to help out in transition. Lakers should have slowed the pace down at times.
Chandler Parsons plays Kobe so well, really impressed by the rookie. He's a very solid defensive player.
Dragic murdered us tonight, not sure why Sessions didn't guard him the entire game. He tore up Blake on numerous possessions with penetration and hit jumpers when he went under the screen. I can't understand what Mike Brown was thinking on that substitution taking out Sessions and plugging in McRoberts. There was no way that Barnes, Peace, or Kobe were going to be able to stick to Dragic, especially when the Rockets use a ton of picks to free up space. Huge error there, awful call from Brown.
Ultimately, Bynum's inability to keep his mouth shut is what cost us this one. He was absolutely killing the Rockets inside but goes and gets himself ejected for stupidly taunting the Rockets bench right in front of the referee. Great job, 2nd ejection this season. He needs to be smarter than that, really disappointed by him tonight and his actions over the past two weeks.
And your right Kobe has trouble with the longer two guards. He needs to do pic and roll with those type of defenders or drive more.
