I mean where has MDA proven that he can get it done? In Italy?

 

Dude is at best a European league coach who does not belong in the NBA. His style and stubbornness are terrible.

The stretch from 1:47 left in the third to 8:50 left in the 4th was when Pau was reinserted into the lineup. The Lakers were up 72-63 when he checked in, and were down 81-79 when he went out. So in five minutes, the Wizards went on an 18-7 run with Pau Gasol "anchoring" the paint.

Now I remember why I didn't miss this guy.


Kobe didn't even bother to put a hand in ariza's face.

I hope Kobe gets the message.  Once he starts the hero ball and lazy defense ,.. it usually does not work. This is not 2006-2007.

I think it's his ankle that he wants to preserve. But if that's the case, then don't play because it can cost games like tonight.

D'Antoni should be pissed at himself. This team is so badly coached.

Pau also tries some fancy behind the back passes - which usually lead to TOs

 

He was clearly off his game (whatever it is) .. So Clark should have played more.

Clark provides some youth ... our other players are just too old

He's 100% right. This loss is on players, more specifically Kobe and MWP.

its the main reason for u? smh

 

What else is there to be said? John Wall didn't go off until the lane opened up during that stretch and the Wizards completely took control thereafter. No defensive anchor = open lane = more collapsing of the paint = open shots galore. John Wall was free to drive the lane, use the high pick for uncontested mid-range jumpers, or simply collapse the defense and kick to shooters. Our defense fell apart due to Gasol's inability to contest anything and D'Antoni's stupid rotations. In what realm of the universe is a lineup of Nash/Blake/Meeks/Jamison/Gasol a good idea? We lost due to our idiot coach and our horrible $19 million benchwarmer.

Kobe and D'Antoni are the two at fault for this game. Kobe for his terrible defense late in the game and D'Antoni for starting Pau Gasol. It was Pau's first game back it's not really his fault. I saw effort from him. It's D'Antoni's dumb error.

Kobe didn't even bother to put a hand in ariza's face.

 

Hard to do when the defense is collapsing every play due to either Gasol as the anchor, or the PFs man setting the high pick all night long, thus opening the lane for John Wall to drive on our defensively incapable PGs. Kobe has to cheat on coverage to cover the lane. Yes, Ariza went off and Kobe should have stuck to him closer, but then we'd have been giving up easy penetration all through the 4th. We'd have given up one or the other.

 

There's no getting around the fact that that 18-7 stretch with Pau in the game gave the Wizards the necessary momentum to finish us off. John Wall found his rhythm, the team got their confidence back, and we could never recover.
