What a terrible weekend for me. Two Laker losses and USC getting embarrassed at home.
The Rockets just outplayed the Lakers tonight. They had more energy, made smarter plays, and simply made their shots when the Lakers missed open looks all night. And just when you thought it couldn’t get worse, Kobe left late in the fourth for the locker room.
I’m not worried since it is so early in the season, but you hate to lose at home… especially to the Rockets.
Aaron Brooks simply destroyed the Lakers. Fisher and Farmar got torched! The Lakers always have problems with those quick point guards.
It’s amazing how the Lakers lost when they forced 19 turnovers and only had 13. It is pretty simple… the Lakers need to work harder and shoot better.
Now, the bests of the day…
Top 3 Laker Performers -
1) Bynum had 21, 11 and 5 blocks. He is becoming a force in the paint!
2) Artest had 22 points and 6 boards. Sold game all around.
3) Shannon Brown had 12, 3 and 3 off the bench. He continues to be the best guard on the team aside from Kobe.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest):
Kobe had his poorest game of the season. 5 for 20 shooting.
Play of the Night: Nothing really too memorable.
What to Look for Next Game: A low scoring game with Detroit coming in town Tuesday.
