This is true. I've noticed the same thing. Blake is still not hitting the jumpshot with enough regularity; so Pau can give him some space and offer it to him. If Blake beats you hitting jumpshots, there is nothing you can do.

That said, this game comes down to defense & pace. Giving effort on the defense end, contesting shots, and at least communicating & showing effort are vital tonight if we want to win this game. Pace is important. The Clippers love to play at a fast pace for 48 minutes. We have to control the tempo because we simply cannot keep up with them.

I think Lakers win tonight in a very tight game.

Easy win. That's all I'm going to say.

True. I'm concerned about Pau's P&R D though, it's been awful all season long

Suppose everyone has heard this report today:
Amare Stoudemire Disses Mike D'Antoni, Says He's "Never Been Taught Defense"
http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1466670-amare-stoudemire-disses-mike-dantoni-says-hes-never-been-taught-defense#
There will have to be defense tonight. Can't have turnstile defenders in the paint because Blake will be looking for new beotches to conquer. There is the peripheral game too that needs to be contended and they have the guns to shred the net. There is no consistent outside shooting pressure on D. Teams always get their spacing and wide open looks. It's all a big gamble to let them throw the dice and we always lose.

I'm not going to call a win or loss...all I want to see is this team compete. I don't want to see Dwight playing like he's in a coma, Pau playing like a female, Kobe playing like defense is an after-thought...

Show some passion, show some fire. If the shots aren't falling, fine. But the effort (especially on the defensive end) has to be there. Just play like you give a damn.

I have heard on AM710 and a tweet from Mike Trudell that because Metta is going to go back to starting that Jamison will probably be getting some playing time this game. Which could be good.

KEVIN DING ‏@KevinDing

D'Antoni said Metta moving back starting and playing mostly SF is to "solidify our team a little bit." More opportunity for Hill, Jamison.


Also..... I'm expecting a good game from Dwight now:

KEVIN DING ‏@KevinDing

D'Antoni on Dwight tonight vs. Clippers: "He had a great week of practice. ... I'm looking forward to seeing him at the top of his game."



Now Crawford tonight for the Clippers. Darn, now the Clippers have their excuse

The key will be for Nash to put pressure on CP3 to play both ends.... Same with Pau.... he needs to force Biff to play some D. Kobe can't let Butler get going and Howard needs to come out ready tonight.

We do these things and have a sense of urgency and we can beat these guys..... They aren't as good as they think and we aren't as bad as we've been....

I like it, maybe he will take that side of the court serious this game because he will not take CP3 going off on him lightly.

The big question no one wants to ask is have they been coached in defensing this team or any team lately? :man3:
