Watching him tonight really reminded me of the way he'd picked us apart the last couple years or so. He's really an amazing PG. I haven't seen his kind of vision from a Laker since Magic.

There was that one pass to Clark for a dunk at the end of the shot clock that especially stood out to me as fantastic vision

Not even just the vision but the efficient scoring to go along with it. Just really fantastic offensive prowess.

Kobe and Nash having nearly identical statlines made me chuckle

Kobe: 16 pts, 7 assists, 4 rebounds, 3 turnovers

Nash: 14 pts, 7 assists, 4 rebounds, 3 turnovers

Nash the gunner was fun to watch for a few posessions, he can shoot whenever he wants to me. Also looks like he has his handles back fully, guys are rarely taking the ball away from him like they were earlier in the season.

Not sure why we have waited for so long to set good screens for him ... hopefully the Nash/D12 combo will keep clicking for the rest of the season as it did tonight

Anyone remember that cross on Bradley and the jumper in Wilcox' face? That made me so "damn".

Nash is just so skilled. One of the most fundamentaly sound players I've ever seen. Passing skills, dribbling, shooting, finishing, all extremely fine tuned.

I posted in the GD thread that IMO his pull-up jumper is probably the best or top 3 in NBA history. Only argument against it IMO is that he isn't a leaper so he can't really hang in the air before shooting it like Kobe or MJ. But still, it's an almost perfect shot. Exquisite technique, mechanical release, perfect arc, he can shoot it falling/fading to either side...
"The first time I ever saw my uniform hanging in the locker I put it on right away, and it just felt like I was putting on golden armour. From that day forward, I just called it 'the golden armour', it just felt like there was something mystical and magical about it" - Kobe Bryant.

He doesn't even need to hang in the air, because he so good at creating his own shot. He gets enough space for that perfect release. I am always surprised when he misses a shot, whether it's a set shot, released while running, off one foot, whatever.

It was good to see Nash looking to take shots off the pick and rolls with Howard. Congrats to him in passing Johnson on the list.

^^ This, this, this x1 million. Now, finally, with the season in the balance, we get the DEVASTATING Howard/Nash pick and roll that I've been waiting so many months to see. I have no idea why it's taken this long. I know that Howard was hurt and then Nash was hurt, so there wasn't a whole lot of time for these two to develop the P and R game, which relies so much on timing and getting used to one another.

But those dumb slip screens that Howard was running were utterly useless. And not just a little useless. They were completely ineffective for what seems like months now. I don't know who to blame, D' Antoni or Howard or both, but I couldn't for the life of me understand why Howard wasn't setting full bodied screens for Nash on ball.

Last night I saw the Steve Nash I've been dreaming would lead our team ever since he was traded here. I also saw the realization of that Nash/Howard tandem that I dreamt of as well. It was phenomenal. And it was unstoppable.

This is why I was so irate earlier in the summer and into the season with the whole Princeton offense thing. This is why I didn't understand using D' Antoni run and gun and launching threes . . .

All I've wanted to see since day one was what I got to see last night. And guess what? It worked. And not only did it work, but it was beautiful to watch. And not only that, it was simple. And it was easy. It was basketball 101.

It didn't take some system. It didn't take any complex planning or sophisticated thought. All it took was Nash insisting that they do it. And it was unbeatable.

I was happier last night as a Laker fan than I've been all season. That was basketball. That was Nash at his finest, that was Dwight playing smart, and that was incredible combination.

The old axioms are true. It's not rocket science out there on the court. Playing to your guys' strengths should be the first order of business. And a steady diet of that pick and roll with Nash and Howard is where we should focus until someone shows they can stop it.

Easily his worst game for me as a Laker.

And even so he hit that great jump shot in the lane... That was some veteran ice.

This is the huge downside of trying to win with an ancient roster. Every game it's just like you're crossing your fingers that someone's hip doesn't give out or it's back to square one. Just not a recipe for success.

Random thoughts:

How to score in final minutes...
In terms of scoring ability, I think Kobe, Nash, Gasol and Jamison are above average scorers and can create their own shot. However, Gasol and Jamison may not on the court in final minutes. Who would be on the court then? Howard, Kobe and Nash for sure. Who else? At 4, we have Gasol, Clark and Jamison. However, Gasol is ineffective to play alongside Howard, Jamison too no D, Clark may be the answer here. However, he is at best an average player and is unproven. His defender may leave him to double team Howard or Bryant. Can he play PnR with Nash? Or can he be a consistent shooter to take the pass from Nash after running PnR with Howard? At 3, we have MWP and...Clark again. MWP's shooting will allow his defender to leave him wide opened and go to help defending Kobe etc. so I think MWP shouldn't be on the court. It hurts our offense in fact. For Clark, he is not as effective as at 4. So Lakers may consider Kobe at 3 and play Meeks or Blake at 2. Meeks is an good defender and shooter. He is good to be here to take the pass from Kobe, Nash or Howard. However, he needs to be more consistent on his 3. Blake's ability to key the ball and set play would be brilliant as Kobe and Nash would be checked all time. However, he is too passive most of the time. It puts pressure on other teammates. So, I really suggest Lakers to acquire a guard who could key the pall, set play, take 3 and penetrate...like Ridnour, Barea, Billups, Miller, West...my ideal lineup is Howard, Clark/Pau, Kobe, Meeks/Blake, Nash...and I hope Nash and Howard develop PnR ASAP...and Howard to stay away from foul trouble...and Nash save enough energy for final minutes...next year, hope we could land another SF. Pau for PP:)
