Once Nash comes back, that problem will be solved.

And if people think that Pau doesn't have fear in his eyes to make the last second shot, you guys have not watch Pau's game for the past 7 years or so. He is never a last second shot guy. Unlike fisher and horry and kobe and other clutch players, he is afraid to shoot. That is not his game. So I wasn't surprised he was like that. What I  surprised is nobody wanted the ball. And thats my point about this thread.  You guys can make an argument that they trying to run down the clock but thats BS in my book. Running down the clock is one thing but we needed that shot. Its not like we can just run the clock down to zero and who cares if the rockets have the ball again. We needed a shot to win. And nobody wanted it. Nobody want the clutch shot. NOBODY.  not blamming Pau.

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.

Howard did. And he did make clutch baskets. I don't get what you are talking about.

you not reading what im trying to say. Open your eyes man. Please everybody need to re read what I wrote. THIS IS NOT ABOUT BLAMMING PAU. This is about the lakers being CONFUSED of what to do since nobody wants to take the last shot!  Sure Dwight might want the ball but since he suck at FT nobody wants to give him the ball. And that leaves us with a bunch of scared players who afraid to miss.  I am blaming everybody.  Pau just happens to take the shot and you can see the confused and fear in his eyes. So it is fair. 

Wow posting about one play..Lets See.. Theirs 82 Games + 48 Min a Game+ 24 Sec Clock = oh I would say about theirs about

100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 plays in a season..

 

Good Grief ...........

His decision making and ability to make a shot is all that matters. In deciding moments I'll take 50% Nash over any other player in our team not named Kobe.

very foolish! if he could barely get the ball up the court b4 the injury it will be even worse if he even returns. Ill give you the wideopen shots he cant hit but he wont take a lot of shots.

He is pointing out a very important time of any game, the closing seconds to a close game is very crucial, it's not about one play.

Ok then how about posting a Play or two on how we Won the Game.

 

It just blows me away where there is a Win someone finds something to complain about.

Now if it was a loss that's a different story.. Nuff Said...

its torture watching them in the final minutes of games without Kob'

Ya always need a Guy who can split DTs, and get to his spot on the floor.......and can shoot "difficult shots" from anywhere. A lot of guys can shoot last second shots if they are open and are not being crowded. There are only a few who can take shots and make shots fromanywhere....One of them is Kobe.....the Other is Melo.....Wade would be 3rd
