- defensive rebounding (bottom 5 in the nba in allowing offensive boards)
-defensive rotations (im willing to bet money we;ve given up the most open 3s in the nba this year)( have NOT seen improvement here) (cough cough ,ANTONIIII!!!!!!!!!)
- turnovers
- obeying scouting reports


if we cured these 4 issues, i think we'd make the playoffs. (also, i think we'd win the championship, because dwight will be healthier in 2 months!) but, we're not playing playoff basketball right now!

you will say; "what about last game" , "what about all of these wins" ; i say "IVE SEEN THE SAME AVERAGE AZZ TEAM,OK?"If it werent for a classic Kobe performance; the lakers would have lost the game against Dallas due to poor defensive rebounding and forgetting scouting reports! how many times did we give Dirk breathing room on the wing (hes just a catch and shoot guy out on the wings now!) ; and all season our Defensive rebounding has been poor(were top 5 in allowing offensive rebounds!)



every laker game i watch makes me want to break something. defensive rotations(dwight called out Antoni on this previously!), turnovers, defensive rebounding - PLEASE LAKERS, FIX THESE THINGS!!!! PLEASE!!!

mainly , i dont understand how our Defensive Rotations are still so poor! IT MUST BE DUE TO NOT ENOUGH PRACTICE TIME(like dwight said) . man, i cant believe i was happy when we hired Antoni, but now, i know for a fact that he's a horrible defensive coach ;;; and i think he's going to cost us this season.

Tonight will tell us alot. Decent middle of the pack PO team, but very tough at home. No moral victories this late in the season, our only losses can be against top flight teams on the road. Do they want it badly enough? We will soon find out.

It's that sport where there are 11 players on both teams and they have to kick a ball into a net, right?

no, its a sport where youre lucky to not lose if you give up a lot of open "3pointers " and give up alot of "offensive rebounds"

EVERYONE,PLEASE, JUST DONT SAY WE LOST TONIGHT BECAUSE "DENVER IS A GREAT HOME TEAM" !!! lets look at why we lost! i garuntee it will be because of defensive rebounding,turnovers,or bad defensive rotations leading to open 3s.... !!!!!

we can win if we're solid in those 3 areas!

Oh, I thought it was where you take no more than 7 seconds to shoot on offense and send whoever feels like it back on defense because its a long way to the other end of the court and if EVERYONE goes down there it might affect your ability to jack up the next 3 within aforesaid 7 seconds.

If I am MDA, I would give Sacre 5 minutes a game while Dwight is resting. I am not a fan of having Clark and Jamison downlow. There is no inside presence. Sacre can at least clog the lane. Offensive rebounding is a problem, I agree.
