Blake has made more layups from penetration in 2 games than he has as an entire Laker. He surprised me.

Yes putting a natural PnR guard in a natural pnr environment. Pretty sure I said he'd make it look like night and day compared to duhon and morris and would be more aggressive offensively..but nope... He wouldn't many "any" real significant difference. My oh my heheh :)

He's not 100 percent and has barely hasd playing time with our unit but his natural playing style fits so much into what we're doing he's seamlessly fitting in so far. Setting up good looks and being aggressive when he sees an opening.


Having a low mistake passing PnR pg that can stretch the floor is a very good thing for our second unit.

Obviously his legs aren't back which is why he fades late in games and his cardio needs to get back up. But im not gonna complain about 11 points 4 assists off the bench.

Good to have you back Blake!!!

Playing very well lately finding people and not making many mistakes, knocking down shots when available and being aggressive in the paint.

Pretty much everything a backup PG should be doing for us.

Blake's been consistantly good off the bench ever since he came back maybe not 13 7 and 6 consistantly but he's been good since he's been back.

Jamison has benefitted a lot from it too.

Yeah I have. Blake has been a good backup pg for us since coming back, low mistake, setting up players and benefitting our offensive flow.
You should check the game logs on how our efficiency level of our bench increased since Blake's return and also the dramatic turn in Jamison's numbers as well since that point.

Blake has played well for us since coming back and our bench has benefited from it. As has the starters while Nash gets rest.

He has a better ratio of alley-oop passes to Dwight than Nash i guess. That can not be a bad thing.

Yeah his passing ability is what really makes it flow sometimes. And his chemistry with finding Dwight is great!! For a guy that's barely had time to practice with the team this fits his playing style so extremely well that it's hard to tell.

Regardless of what you think the bench offense runs smoothly through him and he's been contributing equally well with the bench and with the starters and finds good shots for other teammates.

You can sit there all day and say "Steve Blake sucks bla blah blah" and at the end of those days he'll still have contributed to a win no matter how much it eats you inside :)

Some fans just hate players when they are doing bad AND good. If you refuse to acknowledge how good Blake's been for us since coming back then you're just blind.

Yes there's better point guards in the NBA than Blake, that doesn't mean that he hasn't been playing fantastic for us. Get over it.

He is not even the Blake i want to see, yet he was so bad playing for us and now he is playing great so i am ok with that. But Blake was a quality pg in his Portland days and i thought that we finally found or pg when he came over. But he couldnt beat the ultimate Lakers pg, Fish that is, for a starting role. Playing with the other Steve also helped him i think. And we kinda have a hybrid rotation, yes we have our staring line-up fixed but after that MDA uses players different every night, based on their performance or sinply whether they are hot or not. Actually thats one thing i love about MDA but he sometimes uses strange rotations and for a long time. But it helped Steve's game, he is out there with the bench and Kobe in the end of 1st, he is there with bench and Dwight and the start of 2nd and he also plays some minutes wih both Kobe, Nash and Dwight on the floor. So he is showing us his versitality. Keep it up Stevo.

LAL are 14-6 since Blake returned. He's stabilized the bench, is shooting 41.5% from 3 w/4 asts. in 19 min.

^ yep. It wasn't just losing Nash that hurt us so badly, it was losing Nash AND Blake in a span of 2 games apart.

still needs to go. like i said, there are other pointguards who can put more production than blake. you can praise blake all you want, but that's all he can produce.

Steve Blake with 18 Pts, 7 Assists, 6 Rebounds, 4 Steals, 2 Blocks and 1 TO on 35 minutes? Probably one of his best games as a Laker.
