They brought the deficit down to 9pts in the 2nd quarter of game2, but w/ that substitution back to Fisher and Shaw, we lost that defensive intensity and quickness to the ball, and ended up going down 20+!!! Is it just me, or are the rookies doing a better job these past few games?
Yea.... even though they really didn't get a lot of minutes, I think they did great! Sure they had a few turnovers here and there, but along with that, they brought great O and stunning D... They are like the only ones who put the full court press on, and even in garbage time in the 4th, the Spurs turned to ball over due to their pressure.. Hey if the wolves made us work to get the ball upcourt then why can't we make them work all 48 mins too!!!
They gotta lotta potential, and I love the fact that they're rookies and they're only gonna get better and better, game by game. Sure Kareem may look a lil' scurred out there at times, and Jannero may turn the ball over, but with work comes practice. They gotta be the ones to step it up!! 4real!!
D-Fish and Shaw are doin their thang, but they need to continue to hold it down til Jannero and Kareem come in!!! Come on LAKERS!!! DO THA DAYAM THANG!
