We really can’t hold a lead. The Lakers had a chance to essentially end the series and they blew it. 37% shooting and allowing 55 rebounds gave this game away. The Lakers offensively were stagnant and made several poor decisions.
Only three Lakers had double figure scoring and Lamar was really the only Laker that showed anything positive tonight.
The good thing tonight was that as bad as the Lakers played, the only lost by two.
Deron Williams didn’t do anything until the final minute, but that was enough to beat the Lakers.
Amazing stat of the night was that Bynum only played 7 minutes and had 5 fouls. Reminds me of Travis Knight!
Now, the bests of the night…
Top 3 Laker Performers -
1) Lamar played great while Bynum was in foul trouble. 21 points and 14 boards!
2) Ariza didn’t shoot well, but contributed in every other facet.
3) Pau played solid with 20 points and 9 boards.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Bynum for having a Knight-like performance.
What to Look for Next Game: Better offense.
