When we go to our bench we've got some good energy, but we're reliant on Dwight being our offense. That comes with two problems:
1. Dwight isn't healthy enough to create for himself.
2. Even though he's supposed to be our option, we don't even give him the ball enough to make that work.
With Gasol coming back off the bench we'll be able to run a 9 man unit, give Clark some more rest, and have a more consistent scoring option in the game. Honestly, if we just had him in that OKC game we might have snuck away with a win.
Also it's nice to hear he and Kobe are still strong. It'll be terrible watching Gasol go this season from a personal standpoint. I really love who he is as a person.
