You highlight them up to the picture and copy and then because of the way the forum is designed, you can literally paste them on the page without coding. It's pretty amazing. RD really picked the perfect format for here. Especially with all the twitter updates for a thread like this.

The practice has gone really well. The first impressions with Mike D'Antoni have been very positive! We are going to enjoy this new system!

Let's unpin this topic. Practices are almost every day, so I'm sure our members can continue bumping this topic without it being pinned to the top.

D'Antoni isn't just going to stick Gasol in the corner as a stretch 4. He'll use him at center as well, running screen/roll action & more.




Posted Image Mike Trudell@LakersReporter
On paper, Howard and Nash form the best screen/roll combo on earth, & they'll have Mike D'Antoni behind it. Nash back soon enough.



nice to hear !

Saturday Practice Report

Published by Trevor Wong on November 17, 2012 3:38 pm in Practice News.
Posted Image
Here’s a round up from Saturday’s Lakers practice in advance of the team’s game against Houston on Sunday evening at STAPLES Center.

Offensive Outburst:
In preparation for the Lakers fifth game on their six-game home stand, coach Mike D’Antoni spoke post practice about the team’s offensive performance against Phoenix. The team scored a season high 114 points, with five players in double figures, led by Kobe Bryant’s 31. In the previous game against San Antonio, the team mustered just 82 points, yet they had 92 through three quarters against the Suns.
“It was good,” D’Antoni said. “We’re more of in a halfway stage with a lot of the concepts we’re trying to get. Overall, we shot the ball well. There will be some bumps along the road, but overall pretty good.”
Most notably, Metta World Peace got off to a quick start, netting 11 points on 4 for 5 shooting (3 for 4 from the 3-point line) in the first quarter. He finished with 21 points and six boards.
“He had a great night,” D’Antoni noted. “Every game he should be good. I knew he was good but I think he’s better than I thought.”
Defense For D’Antoni:
The Lakers conceded 64 points in the paint to Phoenix, in addition to 21 fast break points, which D’Antoni attributed to a lack of energy from the team.
“I thought we were a little tired,” he said. “I didn’t think we were aggressive early. The second half was a lot better. It’s one of those deals where we just got to tighten up, get a little better, be a little more conscientious and put more energy into it.”
In the second half, though, the team allowed just 45 points, 18 of those in the fourth quarter, when the Suns shot just 7 for 20 (35 percent).
“I think we picked up the intensity,” D’Antoni said. “Darius (Morris) got into the ball and set the tone, and guys were more conscientious.”
Managing Minutes:
Kobe, Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol all played at least 35 minutes against the Suns, and on the year, all three are averaging at least that amount per contest.
D’Antoni typically has played shorter rotations, of seven or eight guys in Phoenix and New York, and the Lakers bench – outside of Jordan Hill – has been largely inconsistent. But the 11-year coach isn’t concerned about his second unit’s play.
“The bench will wake up, but we have to get our guys healthy,” D’Antoni said. “Again, it’d help if (Steve) Nash would get back and (Steve) Blake. (We’ll have to) kind of watch their minutes, but I think they’re OK right now.”
Steve Blake, who has sat out the last two games with an abdominal strain, is a “game-time decision,” according to D’Antoni. Starting point guard Steve Nash is out at least another week and Jordan Hill suffered a sprained wrist in the game against San Antonio.

Morris is starting again, D'antoni 50-50 on whether he coaches tonight.

Shootaround Report: D’Antoni “50-50,” Steve Blake Unlikely

By Serena Winters | November 18, 2012
At shootaround this morning, head coach Mike D’Antoni said his energy will be a deciding factor in whether or not he coaches in tonight’s home game against the Houston Rockets. According to Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily News, D’Antoni doesn’t want to be a “sideshow” or “take away the focus” of the game.

Mike D'Antoni said he's "50-50" about coaching tonight against Houston. He's planning to coach but all depends how his energy holds up
18 Nov 12

Previously, D’Antoni has said that he plans to coordinate his return with Steve Nash. However, after Steve Nash was evaluated Friday evening, it was determined that he would be out at least another week. According to Lakers reporter Mike Trudell, the Lakers will also start Darius Morris in place of Steve Blake for a third consecutive game. Blake is still recovering from a strained abdominal area.

Darius Morris will start at PG for a 3rd straight game. D'Antoni like his size, praised his 2nd half defensive pressure vs Suns.
18 Nov 12

Although D’Antoni has yet to coach a game from the sidelines, his volatile offensive mindset has already been put in place. The Lakers (4-5) will face the Houston Rockets (4-5), who have also been off to a rocky start this season. The Rockets’ youth and talent, especially with their recently acquired James Harden, should make this an exciting game. Tip-off is set for 6:30 PST.


Also what he wants Kobe to do

Posted Image Mike Trudell@LakersReporter
@HPbasketball - Yup, he's gonna use the full post/P&R/face up/etc arsenal depending on coverages. D'Antoni just wants him to attack quickly.


And he also wants to give minutes to both Blake AND Morris when Nash returns

Posted Image Mike Trudell@LakersReporter
@an_dre_a12 - D'Antoni said he'd like to find some for him...

Neither Steve Nash/Steve Blake practiced today, both getting treatment. Right now, Nash is doing cardio on an elliptical.

Pau needs to learn to watch the player AND the ball. He usually watches one or the other which is why people always sneak moves on him.

Neither Steve Blake (strained abdomen) or Steve Nash (leg) will play tomorrow vs. Indy. Neither practiced, both received treatment.


Dave McMenamin@mcten
Kobe's eyes get real big when he sees Jodie Meeks matched up 1-on-1 w/ him at practice. KB just abused Meeks and stuck a fadeaway J

Steve Nash is doing some on-court things today and tomorrow to see how he feels. He will not play Tuesday. Blake also out Tuesday vs. IND.



Mark Medina@MedinaLakersNBA
Steve Nash was going to receive an MRI today, but Lakers canceled it. They want to see how he looks today and tomororw

Positive sign that the MRI was canceled. Hopefully he responds well to the drills
