Only thing Kobe will do is get our guys easier shots. On the defensive side in terms of wings, Wes is doing all he can. 5 blocks and 5 steals. Wes leads our team in blocks, Xav leads us in steals, Jordan Hill is our best rebounder.
Those are our defenders, when Hill rotates to help against drives Gasol has to not get lost.
Jordan Hill can average 18/12 EASILY as a starter so I'm glad he's starting now, and people laughed when I said he was a better offensive rebounder than Faried
Anyway, we've got wing defenders, and we shut down the 3 tonight for the most part, we got killed on second chance points and points in the paint, and if Pau is disengaged on rotations and Hill is in foul trouble it's gonna be a long night.
I'm amazed the game was only within 4 with the free throw disparity, costly turnovers at the end and a noshow from Farmar so meh.
But Pau needs to be more efficient, if we get him 27 shots and 24 are at the rim he needs to hit at LEAST 17 of them(at the basket).
The calls weren't on our side, as yes Gasol was obviously fouled on some of his misses and the nuggets got away with reaches all night that were called on us but it's still no excuse.
Pau needs to shoot 55% or better when we get him shots and touches like that. Meeks also had a bad game but he's been fairly consistent but we know he's hot and cold. Pau needs to shoot at least 55% from the post if we're gonna be successful.
As of right now the main guy that needs to step up imo is Jordan Farmar, and the main guy that needs to be more efficient is Pau Gasol.
