WMC 12/13: Mercy kill. (0-4)

Re: WMC 12/13: And down goes the Lakers (0-2)

Postby Ariza3 on Wed Apr 24, 2013 9:47 pm

no one in the playoffs has been injured as much as us.i honestly thought from the start that next year would be what we were expecting this year. it wasnt about the team playing better it was injuries and the fact that no one has really played together.

dwight
nash
hill
blake
pau
jamison
metta
kobe

its ridiculous. and bc of it ill give the entire team a pass this year. just getting 7th seed was unreal considering. as long as we win one lousy game against the spurs and actually guard manu ill be happy. dantoni doesnt really know how to utilize his talent and should have coached to his team from the start instead of pushing his offense that doesnt fit our best players kobe and dwight.

The Wolves.

Pekovic and Kirilenko missed like a quarter of the season.
Love and Budinger missed basically the entire season.
Rubio came back from his ACL injury mid-season.
Roy played like 1 game. Lol.

To be fair, they kinda asked for it when they signed Roy.

He needs to get the MVP award now that everybody sees how BAD this team is without him.
I even think he made Earl Clark the "star" everybody thought he was for a period of time.

my wmc: the way howard was officiated wasn't fair. the bulk of his offensive fouls are arm clear-outs AFTER somebody has grabbed him. hopefully, the lakers have sent some tape of SA's general strategy (hit first, then flop). tiago splitter and matt bonner should have fouled out in 5 minutes each.

related note: that one foul by bonner (on the shot that howard made to tie it up in the second quarter) was a clear flagrant. you can't grab a guy with two arms, from behind, above the shoulder, and have anyone believe it's a play on the ball. it's dangerous, too.

i get why howard was laughing after a certain point: what exactly was he supposed to do out there? he tried to fight back and got whistled. his superior strength is being used against him. if a guy can grab both of his arms to keep him off the offensive boards, he should be allowed to toss said guy like a rag doll in pursuit of the rebound. just call it consistently, and howard will prevail over the spurs' weak bigs.

^ I thought a couple of the calls were weak as well. There was one in particular, where he sort of, used his upper body to bang in to ... I wanna say it was Splitter and he got whistled for an offensive foul. He didn't dislodge him, use excessive force, or use his arm IMO.

^^ Have to totally agree with this.

The refs better give Howard better treatment here at home.

This.

And even Stu and MacDonald saw that their strategy with Dwight's 5 fouls was to go at him and flop the f*** around trying to draw the last one. It was pathetic. I thought Popovich would be above that. What is this a college intramural game?
Stu : "Yeah, that's an old fashioned whoopin'."

Not one to complain about the refs, but I absolutely agree with this. It was frustrating to watch, I could only imagine how Howard felt.

We all knew it was a long shot going into this series, but somehow it felt like the Lakers had a better-than-you'd-believe chance regardless, something about the way the Spurs play vs. the way the Lakers play(if you can call what the Lakers do this season a 'way' of playing).

The WMC really is just that we saw glimpses of exactly that chance manifesting itself. There were times in both games when the Lakers seemed to have control of the game(if not the scoreboard) and were treading water just fine. But realistically, those times were more a result of the Spurs slacking off a bit than the Lakers necessarily overachieving.

The spurs might be older and more beaten up but their 1-2-3 punch in Duncan, Parker and Ginobili still works and it felt like in both games the Spurs would just sort of 'okay, Ginobili, score 10 points, great, now Parker, do something, great, now Duncan" and the Lakers simply did not and do not have a counter to that.

I hope the Lakers can at least make it respectable and win the next game and even win the next 2 games, but I don't see anyway they win this series.

Word...if a few things had gone differently at key moments, we'd be in the game. We're battling, battling, and then the Spurs just pour it on.

I remember why I hate Ginobli again. I hate the mother f*****. Great player but I f***** can't stand him. I literally flashed back to 2000-2004 and I start saying bad things about Argentina. 31 POINTS SERIOUSLY WTF. God damn I'm going to the game on Friday...I just want to see a W.
