No shots of Cuban's long face as his team is getting their butts handed to them. Always the icing on the cake when beating the Mavs.

Actually TWC had a long shot of his face. It was crazy.

Meeks ball handling is atrocious and Hill has absolutely no face up game. Morris didn't play very well overall but it was hidden by the great shooting for the most part.

Kobe with another 5+ turnover game.....

I hate seeing this. I've heard this with damn near every blowout win. Maybe there's a reason they played so bad? A little thing called defense

Kobe has totalled less blocked shots than Steve Nash. :bang: In fact, he hasn't blocked a shot all season long! :man5:

Dallas played atrocious, but remember, they just beat the Knicks. Yeah, Knicks lost to Houston, but whatever. We've seen how good we can be.

We did fix things--we attacked early and didn't give them time to adjust their defense. Just gotta stay familiar with this kind of play and the sky's the limit.

They missed a ton of wide open looks. I'm not really sure this game, while I'm excited for the win, is really a blueprint for what we are going to be or what we want to be. But hey, I'll take it! :jam2:

But yeah, this game LA obviously played well, but Dallas played horribly, candidate for worst of their season when all is said and done. So you hope LA learns from it just the same, but I'd call it a wash.

I posted this in another thread...Dallas is 4th in the league in scoring at 102 a game we held them to 89. They shoot 46% for the year we held them to 37. They scored only 38 at the half. They were shooting 31% at one time when we held a 37 point lead midway thru the 3rd. We were killin them. Teams like Dallas, Phoenix and Houston whom we've blown out are potential 1st round playoff opponents. Any win in a butt kicking over such teams is an encouraging sign

A large reason for our defense being so dominant tonight was Dwight. He inspired Pau, Hill and Jamison to contest shots at the rim, MWP and Kobe were awesome in the perimeter as well. At few times inside Brand got blocked or drew 3second calls because of the Dwight intimidation factor. He wasn't his usual self on offense and he still struggled a little bit but it went under the radar because his defense was phenomenal (Which is his primary role anyways) and we need that way more than his offense

Kobe needs to facilitate more instead of trying to force the shots. If there's no Steve Nash to run the offense, then he should play that role and score when needed


He's been facilitating all year long minus those two straight games where the team came out flat in Sactown and Mem.

On a side note, we need to hire the Suns medical staff, Im sure cheapazz Suns owner doesnt pay them well. They resurrected Michael Redd's career last year and now Jermaine O'Neal is killing it off the bench...8points, 5.3 rebounds. 1.8 blocks in 18 minutes :man4:

to be fair here O'Neal is doing well because he finally talked with Kobe and he gave O'Neal the hookup for that Germany procedure.

I remember when the Lakers schedule and practice for O'Neal to see if they wanted to sign him and everyone that was there said he looked rejuvenated.

My only WMC is Jordan Hill not getting many minutes. Other than that last night was a picture perfect performance by the Lakers.

Hate seeing truth?.. :man10:

So in your immanent wisdom on all things basketball you thought that Dallas was playing good or even adequate defense?..... They were flat from the beginning. If MWP doesn't shoot lights out on wide open 3's we might have been in for a much closer game.

Our defense was decent last night but theirs was horrendous.... it is what it is.... not sure how you could even make a plausible argument that Dallas was playing even decent defense....

Detroits effort against us was equally horrid....

We played a decent game.... we changed up our rotations, shortened the stretches and got amazing shooting from MWP and Jamison.... we still didn't get a lot from Howard and Pau.... they were decent compared to the previous two games but still not where they need to be for this team to compete against the top teams....

When we win a game shooting 43% or less by 10 points I'll say we are playing great defense....

Oh.... one last thing... you do know what this tread is for don't you..... :man1:

The Cavs put up a better fight against the Grizzlies than we did on their homecourt. That game just went all wrong so did the one against the Kings which we should have won don't care if it was by a small point margin or a lot. I still don't think we know how to put this offense together, Mike needs to know how to work with two ball dominant players being the go to guys most games, Miami found a way to do it with LeBron, Bosh and Wade so I don't think it's any excuse for us not to find a way. When Steve Nash comes back I'm sure it will probably give Mike and us as fans a better insight on how the team will began to shape regarding the remainder of the season.
