I know we lost, but Wes Johnson had 3 steals and 5 blocks and was the only Laker who had a positive +/- (+7).

He stays this way he'll be the defender we were looking for, he's doing his job.  So is Hill.  thus far the three headed dragon of Johnson, Xavier and Hill are our best defenders.   They are pretty much doing everything.

We're better defensively on the wing, worse interior obviously.

 

Pau is getting lost on switches Hill makes to defend again.


D'antoni said it best when bashing Pau without saying his name

 

We held them to 40% shooting and 28% from three, but the 40% they shot was mostly layups. 

Jordan Hill solidified himself. He's great.

 

 

Let's be frank, everything was going their way last night(the Nuggets) and this game was still within 4 for us, but turnovers and such cost us, Farmar once again laid an egg(1 point 1 assist) and was costly as he started the 4th when the Nuggets extended their lead. So meh. 

But least Wes is doing what he was brought here to do.

I don't think we've even seen all of Wesley. I can't wait to see what he's like after the trade deadline. A comfortable Wesley is going to be SICK

^ Eventhough it wasn't a dunk, my favorite from last night's game was actually the alley-oop to him on our first bucket of the game. I thought the mid-air adjustment was more impressive.

Wesley probably my favourite laker (other than Kobe) at the moment.

Really like his defense

Plays the Shawn Marion role much better the. Metta did

He can play the SG - pf spots

I want to see how he does vs the elite wings like Lebron

Shawn Marion is almost the perfect comparison defense and role wise.


However, Johnson I feel has so much more upside offensively and his athleticism is crazy

Wes is not the player we all thought and expect to be.Very inconsistent.He can play at both forward positions and for that reason may get a new contract next year for the minimum. Wes is a reserve player. He does not have the qualities to be a starter for this team.

I think Wes has shown enough that he'd be a quality bench player to have but I'd never want him in my starting lineup if I was serious about winning a championship.  At least not til he can prove he can expand his game.  Poor shot creator and ball handler.  He may need to invest his time into becoming a great spot up shooter and defensive player.  He's 26 and I don't see him expanding his talents much further.  Just hone in on what he can do now and do it more consistently.

Spot up shooter, defensive player, and rim finisher, I'm all for him being.

Once Kobe comes back Wes will assume his assume his defensive role more, limiting his offensive duties. He is not a shooter, and you shouldn't expect him to score 10 a game. But 1 steal here, 1 block there he has the ability to alter the flow of the game. Putting him together with Hill also covers Pau's weaknesses on defensive end.

Wesley, all 5 fouls and all made the game saving play at the end of the game with the steal and dunk.  Only had 4 points but they may have been the most important 4 points of the game! lol
