Well, the Lakers fought hard and won the game.
They defended the paint fairly well in the 4th, forcing the Pistons to shoot jumpers which isn't their strong suit. Lakers missed 10 free throws (most of them in the 4th) while the Pistons missed 12.
Although Pau shot 5-14 for only 13 points/12 rebounds, there was one possession where he generated around 2 offensive rebounds which ultimately led to a Farmar reverse layup.
Farmar turned the ball over but redeemed himself by stealing the ball and hitting a big three. Young hit a layup while Farmar hit a jumper. The Farmar/Young duo has played extremely well of late.
The Lakers need to continue to work on their interior defense. At least limiting the opponent's offensive rebounds. 22 offensive rebounds and about 80 points in the paint is absolutely horrendous. We need to work on turnovers but it's on the road so the crowd can get into them.
BIG GAME Sunday against the surprising Portland Trailblazers.
Thankfully we're now 9-8!
