Great game. He kept us in the first half with his shooting when our whole team outside of him & Dwight were struggling. Huge props!

He set the tone for the game early. Struggled a bit late.

But the reason why I've always loved Blake the person is his feisty attitude. And now he's got something like a swagger about him. It's something we've never seen as Laker fans and it's something I didn't know if he had left in him.

I hope he continues playing this way. It's really going to be up to him now since Nash doesn't seem able to go anymore.

Feisty is the perfect adjective for him, real. Dude just plays HARD

I don't know if we make it without his scoring in the first half. Everyone was trying to get going, didn't look smooth at all, Pau couldn't buy a bucket, but Blake gave us 18 point on great shooting and allowed us to hang on

Great outing by Stevie. He played his butt off on both sides of the court. Until the 4th he basically had 90% (just throwing out random numbers on this one) of our baskets that weren't in the paint.

Really amazing game. Props.

I just don't understand why he can't stay with the dribble when they use full court press on him. He looks completely lost in that situation.

Regardless, great game. Let's see if he can have another nice game against Houston.

His offense kept us in the game for the most part. Stepped up big when we needed it most.

I don't know what else can be said, he was bombing 3's, and he was working hard on defense, gave us a game we desperately needed.

THAT was the Steve Blake I used to hate when he seemingly played like this against us every time we faced him. Great to see him do this in the P&G.

Very happy with Blake so far this season. Never thought I'd say this but hes played better than Nash this season. but thats not really saying much is it? If only Morris was a decent spot up shooter we could play a Blake/Morris backcourt. Thats a solid defensive duo. I guess I just want Meeks to go back to the bench already lol.

The truth is: he plays better for MDA then for anyone else.

This.

MDA is the one coach that not only set him free, but encouraged him to do his thing. Brown put him in the oven and Phil put him in a system. D'antoni lets him do what he needs to do.
