I swear I must be watching different games. Nash on the court the balls run through Kobe on the block. When Blake is in he runs the offense on penetration. Both players penetrate looking for the mismatch..... however, both are looking for the others to move without the ball especialy Nash. When our guys are moving, setting the right picks and cutting then Nash will deliver the ball. Unfortunately for Nash guys aren't doing that and he is putting the ball where they "should" be. I have been screaming that we need movement all season. It hasn't changed.

Blake + Jamison + Clark = works.

Maybe things look better under Blake because the second unit actually moves around? Jamison primarily.

I agree though, Nash possessions almost always result in getting Kobe the ball in the post. Then nothing. When the offense was clicking, it was because Kobe was distributing from there and playing a 2 man game with Pau at the elbow.

I'm just not entirely sure what the Lakers are paying Nash to do. Bring the ball up and hit a few jumpers a game? It's.... A bummer.

Give it up for Steve Black..... has been very good keeping momentum and style of play going when Nash is out. Nice game again tonight against Celts. :jam2: :jam2:

Oh snap recognition!

I'm actually shocked, but D'Antoni has been his best Lakers' coach so far. He looks WAY more like the Steve Blake we thought we were getting 3 years ago. He's confident, he's penetrating, he's defending well. The man has looked really nice since his return to the court.

I bet he has more takes to the hole since he's came back from injury than he has in his whole Lakers tenure. And I'm being serious.

He's moving out of the "softcore" business it seems. :man1:

Blake has been solid to good far more than bad or average since he came back. IMO he's playing his best overall ball as a Laker, looking like the legit backup PG we all expected him to be and that he used to be.

I agree...Steve Blake has kept that 2nd unit very steady...8 and 5 tonight...couldn't ask for much more from this guy. He definitely looks like the Blake we all THOUGHT we were getting when he originally signed with us....

solid. again. he has good vision and when he gets to play a regular PG role he can excel. he has some quick drives and kicks as well as a couple good layups and 3 pointers.

i like his play and on defense he was scrapping around and getting his hands on the ball etc.

Another solid game by Blake. He did have one or two wtf passes but his hustle and D made up for those. Only downside I had was during that stretch in the 2nd when we settle for 3 straight 3's and a charge (Twan I think) letting Boston cut the lead in half. Blake allowed the guys to stand around and we got stagnant. Other than that I thought he looked great and controlling the team and making plays for guys.

It is funny how people can't simply give the guy credit for being able to play his game and doing the job we need him to do.

At this point I'd say it's "weird" or "disappointing".

he's been good for the past few games.

but he hasn't been the prime example of consistency with his tenure here. people were expecting the blazers/clippers version of blake, but he really hasn't had many of those type of games.

since returning from his injury, i'd say he's being productive at least.
