Way too much despair after a game 1 loss.

 

I've seen crap like this a lot through the years.  Game 2 is the key.  I smell a close loss - then despair.

Did you notice Ginobili did all the harm before Blake Mamba started guarding him? He really distracts the opponent with his defense. Also Clark would have guarded him better than Meeks. Pay attention to details in Game 2 and steal it. Manu was the only one to cover yet he had the dagger 3 pointer in that fastbreak and when he shot it he was wide open.

The problem was on offense, and Dwight Howard.  He had three shots in the 2nd half.  This is Dwight's team now.  Gotta feed the Big Dog.  Steve Nash attempting mid range jumpers isn't going to win a playoff game.

Will Jordan Hill play in Game 2?



Arguably the greatest franchise ever

If it goes 7, think he'll play in the 7th?

Well he was activated for the series in game one, so we'll see if that changes anything.

We shouldn't need Hill if Gasol & Howard come to battle.

Without KB the Lakers need to consistently pound the ball (Obviously - everybody is saying this but the Lakers seem to not get it  :hmm: ) The ball needs to touch Dwight or Pau IN THE POST at least once and then swing it! If the Bigs dominate we have a good shot to stay close and steal Game 2...Just a thought, I'm no coach though just a fan like Kobe :81:

Spacing needs to improve big time, too many turnovers on entry passes or when Dwight makes his move and is crowded since he always keeps the ball so low

Let's not only keep it close tomorrow but win unlike the grizzlies last night. No moral victories at this point.

Shaq was right on point. Our bench didnt score [expletive]. Lakers were playing great D and the only reason Ginoblii hit 3's is because meeks left him wide open like crazy. Ginoblii has played like [expletive] all year but if you leave that guy wide open he can hit a few shots. 

 

 Jamison got some buckets but thats about it. He barely played. We lost mainly becuase nash decided to take every damn shot and miss every damn wide open shot. I mean for a guy who's suppose to be 50 40 90 you would think he could hit some mid range shots. The guy was bricking everything. And I would say only 2 or 3 were actually contested shots.

nash took the right shots, it was just odd that he totally, flat out, missed them completely

 

but it wasn't solely on nash, no one else really hit anything open either...it was a team loss all the way

It was his first game back though. He'll be in a better rhythm in game 2 and for the rest of the series.

Yeah that had a lot to do with his legs not being back.  But luckily it didn't stop him defensively as he held Green to only 6 points.

Meeks on Ginobli was just pathetic.  

It's why I'd rather start Nash over Meeks definitely.   Nash will hit those shots,  a bad day for Nash was 16 points and held Green to 6 points, a bad day for Meeks is 2 points and letting Ginobli scorch him.    Nash > Meeks

If his body can withstand it. Dude took two epidural shots just to be able to play game 1. 

 

Let me remind those of you who are unaware, that's that [expletive] pregnant women get to give birth... so he's gotta be in some kind of pain.

 

But i truly hope he does find his rhythm. We need some kind of perimeter offense.
