He really handle Z-Bo really well. Made him take tough shots, jumpers. Boxed him out off second chance points, where Z-Bo excels.

Really nice job. He deserves a raise.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. >> The soft-spoken Robert Sacre who always preaches teamwork and deflects praise showed his playfully cocky side.

The Lakers' second-year center had just played a large part in securing the team's 96-92 victory Tuesday over the Memphis Grizzlies at FedEx Forum by holding bruising forward Zach Randolph to 18 points on 7-for-22 shooting. Sacre soon relished the moments he matched up with Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill in practice where he apparently dominates.

"When Pau gets mad, he starts grunting and groaning and then puts Jordan Hill under the basket," Sacre said. "Me? Nah, not me. I make him shoot jumpers all day."

Hill interjected and playfully argued the accuracy of Sacre's story.

"No one can keep me off the offensive boards," said Hill, though he was limited with only two points on two field goal attempts and two rebounds in eight minutes because of four fouls. "You think Robert can keep me off the offensive boards? If you believe that ... "

Hill laughed playfully in disbelief. But then again, few likely would have believed Sacre could limit Randolph, whom Sacre likened to UFC fighter Quinton "Rampage" Jackson for his bruising style.

"He's so physical," said Sacre, who has climbed the depth chart this season after the Lakers selected him 60th overeall in the 2012 NBA Draft. "I try to match that physicaltiy and keep him from trying to be aggressive. I wanted to make sure he got the ball as far aaway from the basket so he had to make moves."

The approach worked.

"He played fantastic," Lakers guard Kobe Bryant said of Sacre. "He comes in and plays hard and does everything we ask him to do and more."

Including shutting down Gasol and Hill in practice? That remains up for debate.

He's playing very well, his defense and effort are exactly what you want in a backup center, his offensive skill is just a bonus. He's a strong dude, and talented 7 footers aren't just everywhere to be had, so it looks pretty smart now that he was signed for multiple seasons. I hope he keeps it and can stay relatively consistent, he's an easy guy to root for.

wait... are you saying the Ownership some credit :man4: (not specifically talking ish to you Weez but the FO doesn't get a lot of love these days. lol)

On a serious note, I agree the guy is easy to root for and has some talent.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

:man10: I give ownership credit all the time, like bringing in Young, X, Wes, Kaman on minimum deals (well Kaman was more if I remember right, but still), those moves were great even before we knew how any of then would perform on the court for us. At the time that Sacre got multiple years I didn't really get it, but I guess you want to lock up skilled, cheap 7 footers while you can in case they over perform at ALL and get overpaid elsewhere.

Maximum effort with no sense of entitlement...can't ask for more. Cats like Sacre are easy to root for. Funny stories about Hill and Gasol in practice. Sacre does the dirty work that Gasol or Kaman can't physically do with consistency any more.
No siggie...
