Steve Blake will likely start at PG tomorrow night against the Clippers.

I know its not looking good but I hope Blake proves me wrong. We need a win badly. I want him to step up and shoot the ball, hes a good shooter, hes hesitating too much

Blake will be fine with the starters. He will be limited to the same role that Nash had. It's not like he's never tried to defend CP3...he has, and he's done a decent job of it in the past.

I even have this YouTube I put up where I compared Blake's defense on CP3 to Fish's defense.

The trouble start when you go to the bench....Duhon is better than nothing, but he's not better than Bledsoe.

I don't know if Duhon is better than nothing... People want to give Blake a hard time (not singling you out Rock, but peeps in general), but what exactly did Duhon do right yesterday? :man10:

The dude's only good thing was an assist to Meeks where Meeks pulled up and hit a tough three in someone's face. Duhon is going to get absolutely molested by Bledsoe.

Blake has to be aggressive in all aspects of his game. Can't defer every time to a injured Kobe. Maybe DJO or Morris will get a shot at Bledsoe. Cant be worse than last time...plus Bledsoe isnt starting so his production will be less...i assume.

We'll def lose...just being realistic. But we can lose without turning the ball over 25 times and while playing better D. Just have them actually beat us instead of us handing them the game. That's all i can ask of this team at its current state.

Oh actually that'd be great to see...

Maybe DJO gets a chance against Bledsoe. That'd make me happy.

and those two teams dont stack up to the Clippers either, so however it is that we lost these 1st two games the mistakes would be even more glaring against a team like the Clippers, they have 2 guys (Crawford/Blosdoes) that can outscore our entire bench.

If we have 25 turnovers the Clippers are going to bury us.

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter about 7 minutes ago
Nash actually isn't ruling out playing tomorrow, saying he's "hopeful" his leg will feel better, & noted he's an optimistic guy.

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter about 5 minutes ago
Whether Nash plays tomorrow or not, the good news is the leg confusion is nothing serious & won't bleed much into the season.

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter 3 minutes ago
On the O, @Steve Nash said: "I'm not worried about myself." He thinks there are plenty of spots he can assert himself as season goes on.

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter 1 minute ago
The focus for Nash right now is - once his leg feels better - to figure out how to involve his teammates. It's his nature.

Thank God. We need him desperately. In 16 minutes of play he had 4 assists I loved how he was setting guys up. He looked much more comfortable last night than he did in the season opener.

I blame it on the Mike Brown rotations. You can't develop a rhythm for your bench if you're not consistent as a coach.

The last two are the keys. If he takes tomorrow off that's fine, but him finding that comfort zone in the offense is critical. I saw a lot of progress yesterday. I can't wait for this team click.

if i'm right contusions are something that's just a pain threshold type deal. not saying nash should play because if the pain is too much he shouldn't but it's not a re-injury type thing either.

i think he plays. he's a warrior. but we'll see

If he thinks he can play, he will give it a try on Friday. Nash doesn't like missing games.

A contusion means there's blood in the muscle. It can be made worse if it's played on.
