The pass was a tad high, but Drew didn't even try to jump to get it.

WTF?

How do you make that throw? No one touched it, now they have a chance to make it a 7 point game. :bang: Better to play it safe and take a half court shot.

Pau saved what would have been an ultimate brain fart on defense.

Nice block. Let's play better D in the 3rd and build a decent lead. There's no way they can continue shooting like this.

Anybody's game. Definitely lucky to be down only 4. Pau's playing pretty damn well.

I'm pretty happy with a 4 point deficit. If you watched the game and didn't look at the score, you woulda thought the Spurs had a double digit lead.

Lakers need to make adjustments in the 2nd half. Close out on the shooters, pound the rock with Bynum and stop getting beat on long rebounds and loose balls.

Our defense is in shamble againt these guys.... it looks like a "chinese fire drill" on every possession..... even what should be a simple out of bounds play.....

I'm not sure we can count on our bench to out play their's in the second half....

Being down 4 after another late second quarter double digit run by the Spurs is actually good.

Couple things I see:
1. Bynum getting pissed about the D is his usual passive-aggressive BS. His effort is garbage right now.
2. Kobe laying in the weeds a bit too much.
3. Transition D is horrible, but we dig our own hole by sparking runouts with bad shots.
4. Too many scrub minutes for Murph/McRib
5. Sessions is struggling with his injuries...but making him play slow ball is taking away one of his key advantages.
6. Why are not running any PnRs with Sessions and Gasol?

yeah could be worse ... defense on Duncan is pretty pathetic though ... he's been a non factor for 2-3 years against us and suddenly he's having 2 good games in a row .

Play Blake more in the 2nd half, Sessions has been garbage on both sides of the floor

Superstar Drew is getting his lunch money stolen by Old Man Duncan. Pretty embarrassing.

Good question.


We're just content to throw it into the post and let Pau be the point guard, or just pass it around the perimeter until a post entry lane becomes available. Then it's just stand around until the shot goes up.
