Not to shabby... the guy has played well as of late. 13 pts, 7 rebs & 6 assists in 25 mins. Keep it up Mr. Blake! :jam2:

Does Steve Blake have an identical twin?

Blake is looking really good for us right now. He has looked as good as he has looked as a Laker. Fantastic game last night.

I hope Blake can sustain this type of play. This is the type of performance we need off the bench if we're to be successful.

He's like a betta fish. Miserable in a tight container, but put him in a larger fish tank, he will flourish. Thanks to MDA's offense. Keep it up Blake.

I should state again that as soon as the team began moving without the ball both Blake and Nash have shown their worth. Blake's game has improved with the addition of energy and movement. The guy wasn't being aggressive enough (just like Nash) but has been aggressive this season. He will have some games where he isn't as effective but he is doing more of the great stuff now. Keep it up Blakester. :jam2:

I still can't figure out how he made that pass to Howard.

Dare I say, it seems like Howard is more comfortable with Blake's more traditional passing game than Nash's game, at least for right now. :man4: I have faith he'll adjust to Nash's game more over time, though, so the sky's the limit.

^Dwight does not have the instincts to move where he should be when playing with Nash. Twan and EC knows how to move with a player like Nash. Blake plays a much more simple passing game.

He's been great so far. Can't complain. Dude was out a LONG time, comes back with energy, hits shots, and runs the offense of our second unit with sound playmaking.

8 points 5 assists and 1 steal in 24 minutes.

Not bad at all.

He and the bench looked pretty good in the first and not great at all in the 2nd.

he's play of late has been better than what we've seen from him ever. it's nice, but i'm not a fan of MDA running Nash/Blake. That's a terrible defensive lineup.

He's earned his stripes as a laker, finally. Can't hate on a guy who is playing so well. This is the guy Mitch signed, this was his expectation

I'm quite impressed with his play this season, after he came back from that injury. I guess MDA really inspired him to play a more aggressive role for this Laker team. But then, that's one thing that D'Antoni was often able to do: make role-players know their role.

Yep. Not sure where he's been hiding for all of these years since the signing. But I'm glad he showed up. I'll give D' Antoni some serious credit on Blake's re-emergence. Since he got here D' Antoni's been talking Steve up and I think the confidence he has in him has helped him to produce finally. He just looks like the old Steve Blake again - a solid role playing PG who can knock down a three when open, but looks to create for others in an under control manner. He doesn't look timid any more like he did last year under Brown.

^ and the year before under Phil when he just seemed totally overwhelmed.

He's definitely looked a lot more like the Steve Blake that used to kick our butts in Portland and with the Clippers. He's been solid.

No doubt the return of Blake has been huge for this team. He might not be a show stopper, but he is light years better than Duhon and Morris.

It's not "wtf" to anybody that's been paying attention to him since his return. He came back renewed, with new confidence, and some swagger. He's been more than solid as our backup PG since his return from surgery.

Last night he had 4 assists in the 1st quarter to help keep our lead. Against a good Chicago defense? Doesn't get a ton better than that. Not to mention, he and Dwight have found a nice connection on lobs. Blake knows how to read Howard pretty well at this point.
