Phil on tonights game and what happened to cause a near collapse.

Lakers coach Phil Jackson's assessment?

"Poor coaching," he said. "That's what it was tonight. Putting too much trust and faith in a younger group -- a second unit. They just can't hold it on the road. They can't withstand the fury or the intensity of the fourth quarter. I'm going to have to change it up a little bit."

Phil's playing mind games again. He started early this season on Lamar (he wound up embracing his role), then Bynum (look at the result tonight) and now the entire bench (Bynum is probably included in that as well, since he's a younger player).

Or is it actually going to result in a change? Maybe the starting lineup coming out to start the fourth, or maybe a mix of veterans with the young guys to start the fourth.

I think he will put in the Bench to close out the game, if it's in hand.
Knowing Phil he won't change it though, it has worked for all the other games we have won, so why not go with what he knows works?

I wonder what he will do? Start the starters in the 4th? Maybe not all of them but like mix it up.

100% agree Javier

he should've used Mbenga and Newble at certain periods to see what they're out there

at least they're more physical than Mihm and Luke

dont get how anyone can say DJ or newble would have made any difference in the finals.

I see faith in your eyes
never you hear the discouraging lies
broken is the promise, betrayal
the healing hand held back by deepened nail
follow the god that failed

^^^
LOL again with the Mbenga and Newble in the finals...one guy is no longer on the team, and the other sits on the sidelines in a suit.

Anyways, is anyone reading in between the lines there? (although I thought it was pretty clear...) He's not actually blaming the coaching. He's putting the onus on the young second unit. All part of his mind games. He's not going to change his rotation, or anything, not yet anyways. He'll wait and see how the second unit reacts to his comments.

And DJ over Mihm, but like Maddocks said, it wouldn't matter. Phil switching up matchups and Kobe not playing like crap would have changed things.


And yea, Phil is just putting the blame on the 2nd unit.

DJ > Mihm that year for sure. He wasn't injured and played much more. But I hate Newble, always have. He sucks.

remember in 04/05 he undercut Kobe on a rebound and he suffered a high ankle sprain that pretty much bothered him the rest of the year?

As I've said a million times already, it's absolutely ludicrous to even think Mbenga and Newble may have been the difference between winning and losing those final. And if that's not what you are trying to say, then it's pointless even bringing those guys up.

they may have not made much of a difference but they most likely could have performed better and give a better effort than the injured mihm and walton.. i still remember that play when luke was down the court on a fast break and no one was around him and he was lollygagging around and a boston celtic came out of now where and block his shot :nah:

Again, if you can't say they were the difference in winning or losing that series, then it's pointless even bringing it up.
