Extremely impressive win. It's official. This team is back! Watch out Miami! We're coming!

 

LOL  I hope that was sarcasm :)

Let us make the playoffs first.

Earl Clark player of the game.

Kobe Bryant and his triple double says hi.


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

No loss was directly related to having a lead then losing it because of the stupid hacking gambit.

It's dumb and it absolutely does not work.

Makes a world of difference if plays are called to line Pau up where he's most effective. Just because Dwight operates in the post doesn't mean Pau has to be pulled outside. D'Antoni has no idea that there are high posts and a complete weak side to the ball with post up spots all over it.

Again, yeah, Pau has been below par, but this inane "coaching" isn't helping.

It's not all on the coach, though D'Antoni is horrid. He's been a major failure at implementing any sort of offensive system, but Pau's lack of effectiveness isn't his fault. Pau has been doing this since the 2nd half of the '10-11 season under Phil Jackson. D'Antoni isn't helping the cause, but Pau has been holding himself back much of the last two years.

 

Instead of fading away and shooting awkward jumpers over a guy 5 inches shorter than him, he was looking to post and finish with a baby hook. And even when he would get his looks on the low block, for the majority of the year he had been horrid at finishing near the basket. That's all fixed with some aggressive, focused play and a concerted effort to get low post position, which we saw tonight.

 

Hope we see Pau play with effort like this more often, we're a  completely different team when he does.

Well said, a completely different team to the tune of 3 consecutive finals appearances.  I hope this Pau is here to stay.

I'm saying if we can get Clark and Pau to play like this, it will be hard to play against us.

Much needed win, although I really wish the Lakers could figure out how to do it without playing Kobe every damn minute of every game twice in a row. At this rate he retires after next season, thank you [expletive]ing D'Antoni.

That's two straight games we've seen Pau play like this. Hopefully this continues.

I believe in Howard for dealing with Miami. Let's get to there first.
