None of our players besides Kobe have the mental makeup. Or mesh together well.

Chris Duhon of all people had 8 assists tonight

We mesh just fine.

Turnovers and rebounding were the problems tonight.

tonight's problems weren't the same problems of our last losses.

It's always for different reasons.

Our solutions

Cut back on the turnovers

Rebounding was just bad tonight it isn't always a consistent thing.

Help defense off screens, which INSIDE was GREAT tonight but along the perimeter was terrible

And Morris who has been alright defensively got burned and played hero ball and became a ball stopper, and Meeks who was known as a good defender was getting burned as well and their bench scored over 60 points.

These aren't things along the grand scheme of magic words to fix the team, it comes down to the players to do it.

Wait wait, you're saying that if we cut back on our turnovers we'll start blowing teams out... and you're asking me how we're going to win in the playoffs if we're blowing teams out..

You worded that wrong right?

I'm talking about

the Lakers are having hard time to win in a close game they can't close it since the start of "HACK a DWIGHT"

Lakers are not GAME CLOSER unlike last year and you know it


Playoffs is usually a CLOSE GAME


And by the way do you know that last year's lakers turnover is 15.11 compare to this year 16.83

Last year Lakers Fans Blame Steve Blake and the rest of bench production now the Lakers Fans are blaming the Turnover LMAO

its almost the same as the last year but a little more worst.


People should realize its the lakers EFFORT not the turnover and everything should start from D12's Free throw

We're not even a game closer last year. And it's ok for you that we have more TO and lack of defense than Low FT percentage? Lewl

Nah were better last year compare to this year

We only won 1 close game since the start of "Hack a Dwight" the rest of the win are blow out win

Last year we can win in 2 points 3 points , 4 points 5 points and 6 points but now?

What happen? we can't HOLD the LEAD the small lead unlike last year we can hold those small lead in the 4th Quarter

It's because of the lack of energy specially in D that we losing not the FT. well of course FT is still a factor of us losing the game but most of it is because the TO and the D. specially the perimeter D

If the lakers has those energy that you're talking about we might wrap this game into blow out win but that's not what I want to see

I want to see that the lakers can pull a win in a close game

You still haven't seen it yet everytime Hack a Dwight Start the Lakers momentum massively decreases

Their Focus on the defense, Concentration on their play is almost gone, D12 gives the lakers PRESSURE not HOPE and you know it.


If D12 can't shoot Free throw in clutch time in just Season Games, don't expect him to make those shot in the playoffs


Lack of defense, Sure I don't have any problem with that and I accept that with my whole heart cause the lakers are aging team not a young team.

Those expect those legs helping them so much and people should understand that.

That's why i said our main problem is Energy and D... Problem with the lakers is. just because we have the lead they get too *Relaxed* specially in 4th qt (just my assumption)

Those of you who blame Dwight for missing free throws must not realize that Dwight shot 49% last season, so I was expecting this. The real problem was the fourth quarter defense, turnovers, and offensive rebounds. These are items that SHOULD be able to be fixed. Hopefully it is sooner rather than later.

I think we're just overrated. Offensively the Lakers are very explosive, but right now just horrendous on the defensive side. Nash is terrific, but he will not help us out at all on defense.

we are overrated, like how you posted that the lakers would coast through the championship with ease.

I think this team would be a lot better if we weren't lacking talent wise at the SF and PG positions.

When Nash comes back that plugs in one hole, but the giant gaping hole at SF remains for the rest of the season.
