While the Spurs were on their A game tonight, the Lakers looked flat. Poor shooting, poor passing, poor defense… poor everything tonight.
The Lakers were 5 point underdogs, but I still felt like we were going to win this game. Staples Center was full of loud die-hard Lakers fans, only to make the journey to downtown to see the Lakers give a lackluster effort.
Aside from Kobe, no Laker scored more than 15 points. The Lakers had 13 assists with 13 turnovers — not a winning formula. The Lakers also blew it at the foul line with 8-17 shooting. It really was just a bad game… but I’m sure the Lakers will bounce back, so keep those Laker car flags up!
Now, the bests of the night…
Top 3 Laker Performers:
1) Kobe didn’t play amazing until it was too late. He finished with 30 points, but only 1 assist with his 4 turnovers.
2) Farmar has 10 points with 2 big threes. Sadly, that was the 2nd best tonight.
3) Vlad Rad had 9 points and 9 boards on 4-8 shooting.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Odom took awful shots and made some poor passes. Looked terrible tonight.
Play of the Game: Kobe’s 4 point play (if he made the FT).
What to Look for Next Game: Look for better shooting from the Lakers. I expect the Lakers to come out hot and try to blow it open early.
Game is Tuesday night at 6:00 PM.
