How do you give up a wide open game winning layup? Really?
That defense was [expletive]ing pathetic, we lost because Pau couldn't slow down a simple drive.

it's predictable by this point.

Overall our defense was pretty good.

But Pau had nothing to do with it.

Defense was good throughout the game but Pau got beat, if you see the replay, D12 was like a half inch from blocking it.

R u kidding? Pau just let Hill get to the basket, he didnt even hedge him or anything. Pau just followed him to the basket.

Fact is, it never should have been Dwight's to block.

I'm not kidding. Pau had nothing to do with the good defense we played tonight. Re-read what I said.

A team with pretty good defense doesn't give up an easy layup to lose the game.

Gasol's man lit him up and Gasol's job was toe hedge the PnR.

Like I said the good defense we played tonight had nothing to do with Gasol.

Our defense was very good overall. We held to Indy to just 79 points on 36 percent shooting.

Lakers are poor both with help defense and with perimeter defense. That last possession was a microcosm of the Lakers' problems.

Better perimeter defense wouldn't have let him get into the lane in the first place, and better help D would have prevented him from making the shot at the basket.

Good defense? What defense? The only reason it was close was because Indiana was shooting a ton of open shots bad.

Same could be said for us.

That actually makes more sense on our end as we had many more "open" shots than Indiana did.

Just going to put this out there: a frontcourt of Dwight Howard, Ron Artest, and Josh Smith would have prevented that last layup.

We still lost the game, if we can't defend when it counts in close games, we will lose too many games.
Metta choked and Pau is too slow to slow down the penetration. If your perimeter defense can't stop drives, you better have a formidable defensive front line, and we have neither, Dwight can't stop everyone by himself.

Indiana is not a good offensive team anyway

Pau Gasol is GONE

No, because when Ron lead him to Smith, Smith would have hedged him correctly and blocked the shot.

I really REALLY shutter to imagine what our defense is going to look like when we have Nash at the 1 and Gasol at the 4. I expect it from Nash but now I'm hoping Gasol is traded BEFORE Nash gets back. Am I wrong for wanting that lol

Defense overall was good.

Metta got burned but guess what? There is supposed to be a reason for having a seven footer in the paint if the perimeter player gets beat.

Pau is no better than a 6'6 player guarding that play at the rim.

Replace Ron and he might not get into the lane in the first place. That's why I'm up for moving Ron to PF with Pau being traded for a SF.

Pau folded like a lawn chair on that play. I've never seen a true 7 footer fall apart on D like that before Pau and his on court fiascos
