Nash is a great shooter and he's still so clutch. Always hitting big shots. :bow:

Steve Nash usually guards his emotions, but this quote is downright warm and fuzzy ...

"It’s definitely exciting because we feel more like a team," Nash said after the OKC win on Sunday. "I think the last two games, it feels familiar. It feels like we’re pulling in the same direction and that’s a beautiful thing when that happens in this game." about 3 hours ago

It's all sunshine and butterflies when we win... keep getting W's and we'll forget they had chemistry problems at all.

Obviously small sample but opponents seem totally lost with Nash playing off the ball ...

He outplayed Westbrook plain and simple, It does not matter how close Westbrook was at a triple-double. Nash totally schooled him.

I had to work for the first half of the game, but even when I watched it I didn't pay much attention to Nash beyond his shooting. I followed the ball -

What did he do in the game without the ball that outplayed Westbrook?

Nothing really, he was rarely matched up on Russell.

Defensively he guarded Sefolosha and he did a good job there I suppose. Offensively he was guarded by Westbrook and the only parts I remember him schooling Russell would be a tough shot over Russell once and a couple of pump fakes.

I don't think that he outplayed Russell.

Do not be fooled by his assist and rebound ratio, he was chucking up shots all game long, kinda reminded me off the 2012 finals when he was ball-hogging.

You can't just dismiss the other aspects of the game. Nash played very well offensively, but very little was asked of him and outside of the offensive output he had little impact on the game.

Russell had something like 3 offensive rebounds didn't he? That's your PG getting HUGE second chance opportunities for a great offensive team. He also distributed nicely as well, often getting into the paint and finding someone like Ibaka or Perkins for a basket.

That's the Westbrook you want to be playing against; a volume shooter who was unable to drive into the paint continuously for layups. If Lakers can keep him doing that, it's a higher chance of winning.

Nash, well, he just picks his spots and takes calculated shots that have a high probability of going in :man12:

I just realized that Nash, in his dual role as a playmaker/scorer, gives us over 15 ppg while shooting 50%+.

Think about that for a second. This is a guard -- almost 39-year old -- we're talking about. This is why I always wanted him to shoot more. I think he's even shooting the 3 around 53%. Unbelievable. He usually hits 2 a game now.

Yeah.
His 3 to pretty much seal the game off the pass from Clark.. I was completely sure it was going in.

He is doing what I praised him for when he was on the Suns. I put his ice cold bloodedness on the level with Kobe. There have been 3 opponents that I never wanted to see shoot a three against us Steve Nash, Ray Allen and Reggie Miller.

Love the guy and glad he is being aggressive :jam2:
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.

PLEASE SHOOT MORE. Taking just 5-6 shots a game is unacceptable, hes getting plenty of open looks just shoot the damn ball. Especially on the road we need it, mental midgets like Pau and Dwight dont need the ball in their hands late in the shot clock Steve.

Nash scoring with Kobe & Pau in playmaker mode is deadly.

It's a beautiful thing. Think about it. With the spacing we are getting now playing to our big man strengths inside out with P&R mixed in and cutters mixed in, the passes flying around the perimeter, Kobe going on the block and directing from there OR when Nash is given the quick pass to either drill those open shots at elite, clutch, high % efficiency OR go vintage "Nash" with room to get into the paint and do his thing. :man4: :man4: 2 guys interchangeably effing with the defense like that!!! This is what we all expected should happen with the talent we had on this squad.

Cept for two stubborn coaches hell bent to fit square pieces into round holes. Dan must really be conflicted with his "precious" (as Sky used to call Phil's Triangle) being tossed on the scrap heap. Is it Showtime as he wanted to bring back and the Busses wanted. NO. But damn, the options and the style of play now has WIN and FUN (to watch) written all over it.

^ Give credit to D'Antoni for scrapping his plan too, that couldn't have been easy. Everyone on the team was stubborn and suddenly everyone on the team is sacrificing. :man10:

Steve was incredible down the stretch as always. He never lets the moment get to him and he just makes fantastic decisions. When everyone on this team is playing confidently and within the team, we're so damn dangerous.

Offense is simply beautiful to watch. Nash might not have the assists anymore, with the emergence of Kobe as dominating the ball again as well as our ball movement but he has played really well.
