Wasnt even sloppy passing in the sense that he was forcing passes which I can understand trying to make plays but his passes were just horrifically Telegraphed, might as well just hand the ball to a mem player thats how bad I perceived them to be.

^I agree with that several of the passes were forced.
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.

6/4/4 on 2/6 shooting would be okay but with 5 turnovers, that's not good enough.


I just watched the game from last night and I think Blake is pressing a little hard to do the right thing. Half of his turnovers (like Kobe's) have been from making a pass that has been "just" off. I think he is pressing a bit and overthinking the game at times over the last couple. Hopefully, he can get back to just "playing"


^^ Good point. I think part of that is the glare of the starting lineup that I'm talking about. He really found his niche playing behind Nash, and in some games was straight up, better than Nash when he came in. But now he's coming back down to earth with the added minutes and pressure. He's not really a starting caliber PG any more and it's pretty clear when he is forced to be one.

Again, there's nothing to be done about it right now. I only hope that if/when Nash returns, Blake's confidence won't be hurt by this stretch and he can get his mojo back.

I'm with you guys. I think that the problem is that he's trying really hard to help Kobe, but in doing so he's causing more harm than good. I hope he can sort of take a deep breath and just be that solid presence he was while Nash was healthy.

I'm not sure it's more minutes or anything because he was still playing around the same amount of time even when everyone was healthy and clicking.

We are in dire need of Steve Nash. I don't care if he's on his last leg or not. Nash hits shots and Blake can't buy a wideopen 3.

Dumb and Dumber were 5-13 (Blake 2-6 from deep).

Blake had more wide open looks than anyone else on either team tonight and he missed shot after shot.

Rapidly falling back down to earth. Yes, hope Nash is back soon.

He battled his heart out. I tip my hats off for that. He missed his fair share of open 3s but he's probably tired from chasing CP3 aruond

We have no one that hits open shots. I don't know what we can do about that this summer if anything, but we obviously cannot rely on Blake and Meeks hitting the absolute gimmes that the Clippers (and other teams) give them.

Alright, some of that is frustration, but definitely if he (and Meeks) could have just converted on a few open shots we would have been in this game.

idk whats up with him lately but on offense these past few games hes been terrible. i mean for starting and that many minutes youd think it be better. makes some stupid decisions and missing WIDE open shots. like 3 missed wide open corner 3's that really would have changed the momentum and the game if he made them...al were huge and he bricked them.

defense was as good as one of our guards could have been on cp3 but honestly hes gunna score if he wants. really want nash back. dont think blake is comfortable with this role. way better off the bench. his shot looks different too....he used to like shove or push the ball when he shot. seemed to have changed his shot a bit or something with more arc. idk just something i noticed.

hope he picks up his offensive play

I can't blame him, no one in NBA can't guard CP3, so what can you expect from Blake?
And like Rock said, he battled his heart out, at least he tried.

A lot of the damage CP3 did was on pick and rolls, which our bigs covered extremely poorly. Howard was uncharacteristically bad, wasn't showing as he should've, wasn't really a presence. Very different from LAC's pick and roll D.

yes I'm glad he didn't just stay planted at the 3pt line...those 2 rebs and the steal helped secure this win.

Really liked his game today. His rebounding saved us on a few key plays.

I think we need to do offense/defense substitutions and put Blake in instead of Nash, he's showing hes feisty and can make hustle plays

If I said he had 8/7/3 tonight, what would you assume the 7 was?

Great job by him of scrapping and absolutely fighting all game long. These are the types of games where players like Steve prove their worth.

Blake had some WTF moments but he didnt get flustered and he came up huge late. 7 boards was NOICE.

He's learning how to board like Nash.

I guess Lakers and PG defense however, will ever be synonymous.

the blake mamba

wow he was just unconscious most of the game. a few ballsy shots he wouldn't normally take as a result, but no harm done. work on those entry passes though
