Steve Blake Discussion: Traded To Warriors

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.

solid game offensively but maybe you guys trying to stay positive or what not but how come no one wants to mention his D on Harris or lack there off?

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.

LAL are 14-6 since Blake returned. He's stabilized the bench, is shooting 41.5% from 3 w/4 asts. in 19 min.

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.

He's really shooting close to 42% for 3? That's impressive.

Clearly Blake was the missing piece.

That spike strip really poked him into shape :man12:

In all seriousness, he's been awesome. Much better than under Philly and Brown

I guess MDA really knows how to use him and motivate him. Maybe that's why they always tried to trade for Blake in Phoenix?

MDA definitely said he has kept an eye out for Blake for years. He said he really loves the type of player he is.

Very nicely done lob to D12 early in the 4th. Set the tone for D12 going to the hoop as Kobe hit him down there as well.

his passing is nice but I fail to see the other part where people say he's a good defender. He was thoruoghly burned against NOH/TOR, even yesterday gm I didn't understand why he cont. to go under screens on Nate, same for Nash but Nash sucks on D in general, while not an offensive threat you can't get by with 1 shot either and that 1 being a stupid fade away off-balanced shot expecting a foul call doesn't help the matter either.

^You refuse to see his value plain and simple. I have broken down complete games for you and you still discredit the guy. He is a very solid defender. He does get burned on occassion but that happens to ALL players. The guy s a backup PG who manages the game, makes the right play most times and never forces the issue. You don't like the dude which can be the only reason for the constant hate in my opinion.

when have you broken down this? I see the last 3 games he doing the bare minimum, his passes I give him credit but lets not act as if he's getting into the paint and getting others easy open looks, the players he's passing it to already did the work for him buy getting into position so he could make those passes. As far as D goes, he gets lite up by just any backup PG with speed, game against Tor being the most glaring when as soon as Lucas came in he just went at Blake every chance he got. I'm not stroke a player just cause he finally isn't a detriment to the team now, just cause he does 1 thing well, his passing doesn't mean he doesn't have a bunch of other deficiency, backup or not Blake isn't a player I would expect to come up and provide anything when going gets tough.
