Liked what I saw offensively. Need to cut down turnovers and sharpen it up defensively.

Once this team starts to click, this is going to be a scary team. Dwight makes a huge difference.

Our bench just needs to work harder for those rebounds and starters need to have less TO's we would have killed. Not worried though. I liked a lot of what I saw with this game.

yep i like a lot of what I saw its their first game together so we cant ask for a perfect game [expletive] happens its stuff that can be fixed not worried at all

Our bench's only rebounder is Jordan Hill.

He's not playing. And Sacre isn't a 50-50 ball getter. That's a major difference in our bench strength. Sacre isn't ready for a first off the bench option. Too many turnovers and not enough rebounding.

Bench killed us, as did the offensive boards we gave up. Careless turnovers near the end (especially from Dwight up top) really hurt us down the stretch. I'm not too concerned about it, they'll fix those minor issues over the next few games as they build up chemistry.

We can't run a 5-man bench unit for stretches of games. It doesn't work, never will with our current bench. 2 of the starters need to be in there at all times, rotate them around through stretches and then plug them all in late to close teams out. It's incredibly simple, we'd better start implementing it soon and not a month or two from now.

Most important thing is we are out there finally, to be able to make those mistakes to work on, prior to the season. This is the benefit of the pre-season. We finally got a game together against another NBA team.

Yes, but the bench issue needs to be addressed as soon as possible. We can't afford for the starters to build up a lead only to have the bench squander it away in minutes. Mike Brown isn't the best with rotations, hopefully he's picked up on this after 6 games of watching it fail.

Howard played well on the bright side.

Bench still needs working out.

So glad the pre-season is almost done and I won't have to read over reactions over games that play 3rd string players big minutes.

It's gonna take 20 games of the real season to get a true rhythm with a rotation of players that will be on the squad. Once that's established there will be no stopping these guys.

Agree, our bench needs to be fix asap. The starters are going to play to many minutes.

Nice looking shots from Meeks and Sacre early on

Don't like Duhon too much

Alley from Pau to Dwight was nice

Alley from Kobe to Dwight was nicer

Saw some bricks and an airball from Ron

Too many turnovers

Nash's haircut sucks

Ron looks weird when he shaves

DH looked solid (can we get him a personal FT trainer?)

DH's fall to the court was scary; so was Nash's ankle turn

Offense looks like [expletive] really

DH has an ugly hook

Didn't see anything from Jamison

Poor defensive rebounding

Matador Pau at the end

I know it's just the preseason but are we really the only team without a win?

Pau Gasol is GONE

I'm very afraid of our rotations moreso than the bench play. We need MUCH better starter-reserve integration.
