The Lakers in general are taking bad shots to close games. Kobe, Gasol, and whoever else are just taking bad outside shots. They need to push it into Gasol or Bynum and let them post. I also notice that we try WAY too much to try to win the game by holding on to the lead (and ball) and burning time, rather than try to generate any offense.

It is frustrating to give up leads. But Phil knows he has some key players that he would like to rest when he can. The second unit needs to learn to close out games. He could leave the starters in for 3+ quarters, but the second unit has shown that it can extend leads, now they to to hold them. Just have to keep improving. 16-2 and back home.
Can't wait to get a pair of these!

this win feels like a loss! <_<

this is becoming a trend with this team. the build a large lead and lose all intensity, thinking the other team will just lay down and lose. it's so frustrating to watch.

LOLOLOLOL...

That was so hillarious, yet so sad... if Kobe didn't made that clutch shot (yeah, he played like crap too), I don't think they could have won...

Bynum out, Lamar in during crunch time... WHY?????

Man I was going pretty crazy when Kobe hit that bank shot. I was pissed that he almost turned it over but then was filled with happiness.

As what John Ireland said after the game all the players acted like they just lost the game.
A real quiet locker room.

Phil was planning on giving a day off tomorrow before the game against the Bucks on Sunday.

No more Day off they are practicing . Well needed .

Phil is mastermind at fixing problems but this 4th quarter wear down problem is getting old and tired.

FIX IT PHIL!!!!!! :mad:
