Interesting stat on our second half of the season success despite injuries

 

 



Interesting

 

 

Good teams know how to win while dealing with injuries. It's no excuse to go 45-37.

Well, every cloud has a silver lining.

 

With the injuries suffered, it's hard to see how we could ever end up with a top seed in the west. However, you're right to some degree. There is no excuse for a few of the losses this season and we shouldn't be battling the Jazz for the 8th.

I don't have any sympathy with the injuries the Lakers when through. The team as constructed just wasn't going to stay healthy. You had Dwight coming back from a major injury and a bunch of old guys who play heavy minutes. Some play more minutes than healthy superstars in their prime. It was bound to happen, and the same thing will happen next season without major change to the roster.

Maybe it will, who knows. But even if we change our roster, we still might get plagued by injuries.

I think if we had Jordan Hill this season, things would have been different. We could have taken some pressure off Pau and Dwight, and perhaps their injuries could have been avoided.

We won 70% of our final games and only one team in the western conference did better than us in the last 40 games(Denver)

Like I said, the 2nd half of the season was us playing like a team on pace for 57 wins which is what we expected at the beginning.  And despite the injuries we still dealt with over the last 40 we won 70% of our games.  That is dealing with injuries.

I'm much happier that we turned around the season and ended it winning 70% of our games.

I'd rather win 70% of my games going into the playoffs than starting the season winning 70% of my games and entering the playoffs winning 30% of them.

I've always liked Steve Blake.

I'd rather win 55+ games than win 45.

 

You can't ignore one part of the season just because one part looks good and another part doesn't. The Lakers won 45 games for the ENTIRE SEASON.

 

The Spurs won 13 more games than the Lakers. It's good to have momentum, but you also have to have a good body of work. The body of work the Lakers put in this season looks pitiful.

 

The Spurs just look better. Even though they were missing Ginobili and Parker didn't look like himself at all, it took an uncharacteristic performance from a mediocre role player to barely beat them.

 

If the Steve Blake averages 20+ and the Lakers can shut down Parker this entire series, then they have a a chance. Good luck with that.

We all would have liked the Lakers to win 55, rather than 45. But i think it is more important to be going into the playoffs playing well, rather than having a good record.

Also, you actually can ignore the part of the season that looked bad. Recent record is a lot more telling of the quality of a team than overall record and the fact that the Lakers won 70% of the last 40 tells me that they're better than what their record might suggest.

@KevinDing: Popovich said Tony Parker is "healthy" and suggested Manu Ginobili (hamstring) will be limited to 25-30 minutes.

Limited? Pshh, that's quite a lot of minutes for "limited". Might as well be healthy.

Lakers season record 45-37
Lakers spurs fist half score 45-37

Coincidence?
No, proof of a vast alien conspiracy?
Possibly...

our offense suck!!!!!


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

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

Feeling good about my prediction after game one. I think the role players will play better at home, so I think the Lakers can steal at least one game.

I gotta say though, I think the Lakers might have had a chance if Kobe was healthy. The Lakers might have actually improved on defense.

We played great D for long stretches but couldn't convert on the offensive end. If we keep up the D and get a lot of those open shots to fall we'll get some wins. <br /><br />Also Pau needs to go back to the post
