Yep Sacre is starting tonight instead of Hill.  D'antoni is doing it to re-energize Hill who has had a string of bad games but also wants to take advantage of Sacre's defense and rim protection.

 

 
  1. Robert Sacre will start for the Lakers tonight. Jordan Hill will come off the bench.

     

    D'Antoni's hoping to re-energize Hill with this move, while taking advantage of Sacre's defense. Hill has totaled just 6 points in last 3.

 

 

So D'antoni is hoping that it will cause Hill to come off the bench with a vengeance and take that starting job back. 

Hopefully it works!

What could go wrong?  Sacre goes 20/10 and becomes the new Chris Mihm....or perhaps the next DJ Mbenga

To me it depends on if him and Pau have chemistry.  Because if Jordan Hill has a beast game off the bench and Sacre has a great game next to Pau, and Pau has another bad game... we may see Pau be the one replaced as a starter if it keeps happening. 


D'antoni seems to want to have a defensive prioritized starting lineup and balancing it out with the bench, so Sacre is out there for defensive purposes and Jordan Hill is back at the center position with our bench. 

On the flip side if Sacre has no chemistry next to Pau and Hill has a good game, then Hill likely starts again and Sacre becomes backup center.  

So a lot can happen given our depth.  So I hope Hill AND Sacre have good games today.

Worst case, its one game.  Curious to see what Sacre can do when given the chance...

D'antoni on Gasol's shooting slump. (summary) 
 

D'antoni: He has to pick and dive.  It's completely up to him where he wants to go where he feels he can score from.  He can play inside out, and is skilled enough to shoot from outside and hit those shots..but it's not a situation where I say 'please never go into the paint.' so it's up to him to go to where he's comfortable.




So pretty much what we've been saying.  D'antoni wants Gasol to roll to the basket more off the picks, and has given him freedom to shoot and score from where he wants to.  So if Gasol is deciding to pop, it's his decision, because D'antoni has already been telling him to dive and dive and dive. 

So what Pau does is up to him.  If he's shooting jumpers instead of rolling to the basket it's because that's what he wants to do, even if D'antoni has been pushing him to get CLOSER to the basket X_X 

 

 

Last year it was "D'antoni wants him to shoot threes"  Pau: "I need to be closer to the basket!" 

This year "D'antoni wants him in the paint and rolling to the basket as a center."   Pau: "You know... I think I'll shoot jumpers instead."  :smh:  

 


Come on Pau, dive to the basket!! :) 


Hill really hasn't looked the same since hurting his ankle X_X   Hope that this rest he is getting on the bench helps that recovery.

I was going to say I'm looking forward to the Jordan to Jordan chemistry off the bench, but then I forgot Farmar is out for a month...

 

We can still win this!

We also need to get Cousins in foul trouble or he's gonna play ping pong with Pau.
