I know its been awhile since my last Post-Game Report, but I’ve been very busy in life. I just got back from the “Clipper game” so I figured I would write one while I’m sober.
It started out ugly for the Lakers, but it all quickly changed. It was great to see so many other Lakers fans in attendance tonight, especially those who joined me in booing Smush.
The Lakers took care of the little things: 49% FGs, only 8 turnovers, and had 25 assists. I would still like to see the Lakers take less threes—29 is insane! The Lakers had 6 players score double figures in the 28 point rout. The Lakers earned their 54th win while handing the Clippers their 56th loss.
Now, the bests of the night…
Top 3 Laker Performers…
1) Believe it or not… Luke is my number one. After so many STDs, Luke is finally clean. 18 points including 4-5 threes? 5 boards, 4 assists, 0 turnovers, 1 steal and a block? Wow, is all I have to say!
2) Lamar took three shots, but had 14 points and 13 boards. Talk about efficiency.
3) Farmar looked great tonight. He had 10 points on 4-6 shooting, 4 assists, and 2 steals.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Elgin Baylor for employing Smush Parker yet again.
Play of the Game: Farmar’s buzzer beating three.
What to look for next game: Look for the Lakers to blow out New Orleans. They need to send a message to the West.
Game is Friday @ 7:30 PM (FSN).
