Basically even an old, slow Pau is a scoring threat in the post, AND all the way out to the 3 point line, his man has to stay with him, it opens the lane, guys can cut. Dwight? He draws guys TO the basket by always standing right under it with his hands out wanting a pass, and he is zero threat to score outside 5 feet.
If you think Gasol would have made a difference in this game is just absurd, because for one.... the Celtics were driving through the lane at will so I'm not sure Gasol would have solved that problem and also.... Gasol was not gonna make Jeff Green play worse..... everything from this game and season has been dysfuctional and I won't be surprised if a lot of fighting happens in the locker-room once the Lakers basically get mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.
