It's a nice barometer actually. Who said Nash doesn't make a difference again?

The Spurs lead the NBA w/25.5 assists per game. Since Nash returned, LAL avg'ing 28.3 apg (3-1 record). They were at 20.3 w/out Nash.

Yep, offense is pretty much set. And wow what a difference Nash makes... that is a HUGE difference considering. Hopefully we can keep that up.

But this means something on a larger scale, we're averaging these many assists and in the middle of all this Kobe is shooting 56% from the field since Nash's return as well. That is higher than Kevin Durant.

Shows how much of a different team we are with him really,

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

Amazing stat, and what is underrated on what he does is, setting screens around the elbow area.Very fortunate to have him on this team

Steve Nash makes the Lakers offense so smooth. It so fun to watch especially when all phases of the basketball are clicking very well!

As long as he stays healthy we shouldn't have to worry about our offense.
