Kelly can't seem to get ahold of the ball. How about some spot up shooting

Yeah I missed the game too.  I swore I kept it on NBA TV but I hit the clicker and it changed the channel so every time I woke up it looked like the game wasn't on... so I missed it!!!   From what I've read we had the lead after the 2nd and partway through the 3rd, so I'm gonna read up on what happened in the 3rd.

 

‏@LakersReporter 

It's Blake-Meeks-Young-Johnson-Gasol, another new line up, to start the 3rd Q, small w/Johnson at the 4.

 

This group w/Johnson at the 4's been fun to watch. Everybody touched it before the 2nd Meeks 3, putting LAL up 63-58.

 

Klay Thompson's on fire tonight, now 8 for 11 after drilling his 3rd triple. LAL w/in 3 after Hill's first bucket, 71-68.

 

Like in Beijing, GSW's starters have blown it open against LAL's bench, this time late in the 3rd. Big run has LAL down 84-70.

 

Mark Jackson may be resting the starters in the 4th, but they beat up on Kaman/Landry/Meeks/Farmar/Henry. GSW = 11 of 19 from 3.

 

If THAT is the case then I'd like to now how we looked in the first half as that seems to be the only two quarters of relevance as the 3rd sounds like D'antoni was experimenting now with Farmar and Wes back while Golden State stuck with their starters.

Alright read up some more.

D'antoni tried a new starting lineup today, didn't start Kaman and Gasol.

When Kaman was with Gasol in the 2nd we went on a 10-0 run which got us the lead going into halftime.

 

In the 3rd we went REAL small with new bench rotations experimenting.  


4th was end of the bench.



Alright, so the takeaways from this game are, that Kaman and Gasol thus far have been our best starting lineup so I can see D'antoni sticking with that and he's basically trying to find the best places for Farmar and Wes right now cause they missed so much time and he tried out new things.   Wes played well today apparently as did Farmar. 

Nash only played the first half.

 

Alright so to me I'm guessing that D'antoni next game is going to try Wes at the starting 3 with the Kaman Gasol lineup, and bring Farmar off the bench.  Seems most logical, and keeping our bench lineup and rotation as it was before.   Seems like that should work to me.

 


But today from the beginning it seems we were trying out new lineups and Gasol/Kaman still was the best one in terms of starting.  After that D'antoni was trying out different bench lineups against GSW starters and saw what did and didn't work.

So then hopefully now that Farmar and Wes are BACK we will find out what works best with them sooner rather than later, if this is the case I'm glad they made it back with 2-3 games left in pre-season so we can figure that out.  



So am now hoping everyone else remains healthy so we can get this solidified!!! :)

Yea, Mark rested his starters in the fourth and the Lakers couldn't really buy a basket. A lot of jumshots. Very few post up plays and a smidget of attacking th basket. Defense was terrible. Golden St was smacking that a double s from downtown. Even at one point open layups and dunks were uncontested. Very ugky. Landry had a cold dunk off the steal, but that was it. He may e outro.

Sounds that way, well at least if they waive Landry that allows Henry to play some backup 3 which I think it's time for.

Thinking our starting lineup and bench SHOULD look like this I think for the best case scenario



Nash

Young
Wes
Kaman
Gasol


bench

Blake / Farmar

Meeks(start with Young with this bench and then switch to Meeks)
Xavier
Williams / Kelly
Hill

That's what I'd go with till Kobe returns.

Wes apparently looked like that intangible guy, was taking down rebounds and wasn't playing outside of the system, took opportune shots but was mostly hustling.    This I'm fine with.  I don't expect 15 ppg from him unless he's wide open all of the time and the defense is completely playing off him.  Seems more glue guy that does 'the little things' rather than superstar.   I'm fine with that.

Also glad Farmar got some burn today after missing the last few games.

Next games are the 22nd and the 25th against Utah.   Let's hope that everyone stays healthy so we can have the lineups sorted by then.

Fatmar looked good to me. Really tried to get the team involved and was able to score. His jumpshot has developed nicely. He also drove the lane for a fee kick outs, but the team wasn't hitting the jumpers.

Those are the most important things that we had to find out.

I'll be happy if Nash only has to play first halves while Farmar gets acclimated.  

No one could hit a three today except Wes, Meeks, Young, Williams, and Blake.  And it was just once for each. 

 

It was the missed threes that threw off percentages as Nick Young would have floated at above 50% today if not for it but it happens.

 

Gasol had 16/7/4 which was nice
Kaman off the bench had 8/6/1 so he needs to start next to Gasol imo.

Jordan Hill only playing the 2nd half had 4 points but 8 rebounds.  He needs to backup both bigs.

Farmar did well and had 4 steals as well.  He needs to play when Blake is off or when we want to go for a faster look.

 

Meeks had one of his "once in a blue moon" 'alright' shooting performances.

Xavier was off with his jumper but still got 6 points by going 4-5 from the free throw line.


Xavier seems the type that can net you 15+ points when his jumper is on and still get you 5-10 on nights when his jumper's off because of his ability to get to the line.  He's a keeper, I just hope the Lakers DO!

Landry is DFenders material but at least he'd stay in Los Angeles and be on call in case anything happened(which I hope doesn't, but he's good to have as a substitute for one of our shooters)

 

So right now, without Kobe our 12 man rotation should be as follows imo

 

Starters

Nash / Young / Wes / Kaman / Gasol


Bench

Blake  / Meeks /  Xavier / Williams  / Hill

Farmar                                    Kelly


When Kobe returns it should be

 

 

Starters

Nash / Kobe / Wes / Kaman / Gasol


Bench

Blake  / Young /  Xavier / Williams  / Hill

Farmar                                    Kelly

idk why the scoreboard kept messing up in the first half, we got deducted one or 2 pts i forgot when

and never got changed

also farmar hit a three

and nash hit a very awkward 3 when he looked for a foul and threw a one legged off balanced 3 pointer, no foul called

Not a surprising outcome considering we started Nash, Blake, Young, Williams and Gasol. Would expect the Warriors to smoke us with that kind of lineup.
