What if Gasol played in the 90s?


Rodman would have beat him to death.

FTs were scarce for both teams. the difference is in the fact that the lakers can't play defense, can't score, and can't rebound



That's partly true. But when you consider that Bryant & Gasol are the two highest-skilled offensive players on the court, were playing on the road, were beat on, but couldn't get to the line, then the advantage moves to Orlando.

That's what happened today.

It happens a lot over the course of an 82 game NBA season.


If you asked both these teams who would rather play a "free flow" game with limited free throws, and who would rather have the refs calls it straight up, Orlando would choose the free flow game and the Lakers would want it called straight up.

LA is a precision offense team. When you are allowed to foul them and disrupt the offense, while not getting penalized with them getting to the line, then you gain a huge advantage.


The Lakers will take a game like this against Phoenix, but not against Orlando.

Don't feed the trolls.

This game is a perfect reason why we shouldn't trade Bynum. Pau cant defend the post to save his life.


bynum couldn't defend dh either

but I'd rather see pau leave though

Pau Gasol is GONE

We're streaky this year man, if we lose 1 we lose a bunch in a row and we play tomorrow in Charlotte which is the 4th game in 5 nights. CHA is like a house of horrors for us in recent years

We lost this game because of poor perimiter shooting. Which is why Orlando is winning the class.

Gasol is scared to death of Dwight. That's the difference between a superstar and a true borderline all-star. Howard looks like Hakeem out there.



I don't know if its "scared" or just resignation. He's been popped in the face at least 2x today and is fed up that he's not getting any calls.

One of those days . . .

Atleast he's able to body up and take the contact, and does a much better job rebounding. Pau just gets abused, cant boxout worth [expletive], and gets pushed around by much smaller guys.

I'm out this piece. See you Laker fans (and those lack of)...

Howard was beastly and totally dominated us today. A good offense starts with a solid defense, and we obviously had NO DEFENSE WHATSOEVER. Giving up 3's like they're nothing... Dwight making Gasol look like a highschooler... easily out rebounding us...

We have a great offensive team - but all light gets dimmed when we get SMASHED on the defensive end. Easy as that... Gasol needs to man up... fatigued/injured Bynum is going harder than him.

Yeah, the Laker offense sucked royally today, along with their perimeter defense.

Scoring by quarter this game:

1st quarter - LA 21 ORL 24
2nd quarter - LA 20 ORL 21
3rd quarter - LA 19 ORL 22
4h quarter - LA 15 ORL 22

Lakers FG's 33-84 for 39%

Lakers FT's 7/15

Lakers 3 pt% 2-16

:facepalm:

Oh well, Lakers were just tired.

It was a predictable loss. Not surprising, this takes the excuse out of losing to Charlotte. They mop the floor with them just for fun...

The only thing I am really concerned about is our free throw shooting. We just had a bad game offensively, which will happen, especially going for a threepeat and on the fifth game of a seven game road trip. But our free throw shooting throughout the season thus far has been atrocious.
