He's going to have to really toughen up around the rim again, but that'll take time. In fact for most of his career he hasn't been able to handle phsycality very well. I think the one year that changed was 2010. The one thing that we need to be able to count on is that when teams go small, he can punish them in the post.

But Faried absolutely DESTROYED him on the boards. If Gasol and Howard clean up the glass, we easily win this game.
