Actually WE as a team defended quite well in the half court and Dwight defended well holding Cousins to 7 points.
But they scored 50 points in the paint to our 22. How Gasol hurts us on defense was more evident tonight than it has been all season to be honest and it's why Mitch is trying to unload him for Smith, not for Smith's offense but his defense.
People may say he didn't give up all 50 points but he had a lot to do with why they scored 50 in the paint. Because of his inability to switch, his inability to watch the ball and the players, and his reluctance to play on someone. Cousins had 7 points the whole game. 4 of them were on Gasol in the final pivotal moments of the game
Gasol has been sucking on D this entire season he needs to go he's been garbage since Phil's last year.
