Good win. I liked some of the tough defensive plays today.

The NBA should move the free throw line 10 feet closer so we can start hitting them.

Yes, our guys played with more energy today, and that includes Pau. Props.

Lakers win :jam2: but they need to practice their free throws and stop making scrubs like Amundson look like All-Stars, that guy was ridiculous. :freak2:

Pretty happy with this win. Sure, it wasn't perfect, some bad/dumb stretches, but there was tangibly more effort and all around better offense from everyone. We really gotta do some more damage against Zone defense though. It was so frustrating watching us play hot potato around a weak zone, only to finish with bricks.

Also, how about Sasha? Sure he had a couple of dumb fouls, but man, his hustle/energy on D was really great to see.

And Fisher making shots! That was exciting.

LOL @ everyone saying "good win" after almost blowing a 15 point lead. Denial is not a river in Egypt. Alvin Gentry losing his cool and costing his team two points did a lot as far as shifting the momentum back in favor of the Lakers, not to mention the two points. Keep in mind that Phoenix closed it to within four towards the end.

I will say that there was a lot more toughness and the Lakers played more physical than usual, but talk about some dumb fundamental mistakes, ESPECIALLY on fast breaks where they elected to kick the ball out and jack up a reckless three rather than attack the rim. That, the missed free throws and FFS will someone inform the team that zone defense has been legal in the NBA since 2002. I love the toughness (a hard foul by Pau is a rare sighting and in Gentry's defense, it should have been a Flagrant but the refs went with Gasol's reputation), the physical play, making adjustments on D when it was necessary but when you have a lead as big as the Lakers did, you've got to capitalize. The tone here would have been verrrrry different had Phoenix made one or two more of their misses late in the 4th.

^^^ & if we would have hit a couple more free throws, it would have been a double digit win.

A win is always good, and the Lakers played better than they did the last few games, but you're right that they still need to improve. Bad FT shooting and mistakes on both ends made the game closer than it should've been. Also, the Suns didn't have Frye, so if he had played, we might be looking at a loss right now. The next few game will tell us whether the Lakers have turned a corner, or are still struggling to find their mojo. Let's hope it's the former and not the latter. Other teams (esp. the Mavs) are catching up to the Lakers, and a winning streak is needed to hold them off for the best record and HCA.
Thanks for the sig, Jr. Kobe.
