thats really bad, who wouldnt admit

 

but still had a shot at the game

I understand Dwight is 1-7, but we hafta at least give him some touches.  At least guys can space off of him.  Man I wish we had Gasol in the lineup still.  He at least is a reliable scorer in the post.


The game changes, the players turnover, but the Mamba remains a constant!

Jesus [expletive] I knew we were bad at transition defense but my goodness...

 

I hate Mike D'Antoni. Coach on at least one end of the floor. There was no semblance of structured offense or defense out there tonight. 

No one can convince me that he isn't the worst coach in the league. Not a chance.

We dont give the ball to ron to shoot. He just takes the ball and shoots.
Which is why he should have been benched ages ago.

You can't expect Dwight to look active when he doesn't even touch the ball. That's a fact. As much as you guys like to say he isn't Shaq. Shaq would look just as disinterested if he didn't get the ball and he even admitted so. For a player of Dwight's ability, hurt or not, to get 1 touch the entire second half is a complete travesty, especially when our team is turning him down to give MWP and Tawn more attempts on a night when they were terribad.


Bynum would've been clowning on the bench if he got the touches Dwight has this year.

Dwight doesn't do as good a job as Shaq at consistently getting great post position, making himself a big & wide target, and legitimately demanding the ball passionately.

 

DH simply doesn't have the low post ball skills of Shaq or any skilled big man for that matter.


Pau Gasol is GONE

Yeah, but we're the Lakers and you know if WE do that, they'll be massive suspensions and an uproar.

We constantly have 15 turnovers per game under this so called offensive mind....

Nash was supposed to fix the turnover problem.

ehh watev. This was a defiantly a loss. We talking about a team who is 26-4 at home. This isnt a moral victory this is a loss. Nothing more nothing less. 

 

Next game is bigger because those are the games we cant lose if we want to be in the playoffs.

Yeah, it just doesn't make sense on any front to not get him the ball consistently. If he isn't scoring teams still are going to double him and he can free up our other players.

Not really sure what MWP truly contributes out there.  Sure he comes up with a few steals, and hits the occasional three, but his defense is rapidly declining and his offensive decisions leave plenty to be desired.

But what can we do when we get there?


Who gives a [expletive]... We don't have Pau right now we can't bang with big teams yet. And when we get Pau we have to establish him in the game effectively alongside Dwight. As you can see our rebounding is just horrible ever since he's left. He's significant even though he's soft as [expletive]. Get to the playoffs. Hope you can upset the spurs. Hope you play the spurs too. We have to make the playoffs to at least be able to do something

Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

Stay focused on the big picture everyone. We win tomorrow and Dallas beats Houston we'll be a lot happier 24 hours from now.

They lost by almost 20. Okc was toying with them and blew them out when they felt good and ready.

Fact remains, against the elite teams we simply don't match up.  With this trend, the playoffs will be a disaster for us.
