Over the last 10 games where Kobe has started facilitating (mostly with either Gasol or Howard out), we're scoring 99.7 points a game. 11th best. Same stretch of games defensively we give up 97.4 points a game. 11th best. So even though Kobe is facilitating and cut down his scoring, our offense has become slightly worse but we have become much better defensively.


3 of those games were without Dwight. And 1 of them was without Metta. And 4 without Pau. Now, I know Pau is no defensive juggernaut but he is our only 7-footer so he's still a big inside.

At any rate, I think this goes to show that in general, the theory that playing as a team offensively, would lead to the team playing better defensively. It makes sense, it's just nice to see it in action.

Looking at past 11 games (Kobe has been dishing in last 11 games), we're allowing 44.6% shooting compared to 45.2% shooting in games prior to the last 11.

Pace has dipped slightly which helps in the opp PPG department as we've gone from 87.3 opponent FGA per game down to 86.2 opponent FGA per game in the past 11.

Opponents are making 38.5 FG per game in the past 11, compared to 39.5 in games prior.

Not a massive difference numbers wise, but people need to remember this is per game. To hold opponents to a full percentage point lower every single night can make a difference.

You can't really go based on that though bc our pace has changed as well. I think our offense has stayed about the same since December (7th-8th)

But our defense has improved considerably, we were 24th in points given up per 100 possession at our worst and hovered around 21 for a while. Now we're 15th which is about where MDA's Suns were ranked. I think we can improve upon that a lot though.

It doesnt help that Dwight is having whatever issues of his own + MWP struggling.


We can easily keep up with the Clippers. It all comes down to Nash and how much he makes CP3 work defensively. It would be so nice to see Kobe guarding CP3, and then have Nash initiate the offense majority of the time hes on the court to make CP3 work.

This is a game where im so glad we dont have Pau. I look forward to not seeing Griffin destroy us in every way imagineable. I hope Clark does a good job on him.

WMC; The game is nationally televised on TNT. So, that mean TWN doesn't have the game, and I have to listen to Steve Kerr broadcasting. He's awful. I can't stand him. I hate to have the TV on Mute, but I'm thinking about it...

IMO the difference is the bench, if Clipps have the lead our bench will not cut into it. This bench is almost like the bench we've had last year, if things are going well they do well if things are going bad they do even worse. If we have the lead the bench will surely give it away.

Pretty sure Joey Crawford has reffed both Laker/Clipper games.

This team can't play defense, too old & slow to rotate, and that horrible start speaks for itself. Is this a PO team in the 1st half? Absolutely not. We're old, slow, and lack size inside right now; this is a horrible team I'm witnessing right now; So sad...

LA Clippers are just too strong and too good for us, they were toying with us in the game. :man6:
