Great steal by Kobe. He's got some fresh legs tonight so far.


Terrible shots? These are the same shots the guy has been taking his entire career.

He (and everyone else) has to find a way to get the team involved. They'll miss shots but they'll also make shots. When the Spurs when down 24 to the Clippers, they just kept doing the same thing they always do (which wasn't working at first). And they came back.

Let's ride Kobe's hot hand for now, but if we're going to win this someone else has to step up and we need to play team ball and find out what will work tonight.

fronting pau...it's not that hard to fix. mile brown has to adjust so he can get an open lane to the hoop with a high lob pass. other big has to rotate.

what's with all the fouls. when was the last time drew was in foul trouble. pau has no excuse to not step up now

exactly. Let Derek drive. He cant make lay ups. He's just looking for the foul call.


Missed the point.

Derek Fisher beat our whole team down the court besides Hill. Derek Fisher.

The last two run outs were on short rebounds and none of the "safety valves" even crossed the 3 point line before they got to the basket.... Kobe is bringing it on offense but the last 2 times it was his responsibility to stop the transition....

Yeah, it's nuts. If we actually were able to shoot the ball and make them take it out of bounds, it would help. As of now, if anyone other than Kobe shoots, they're just releasing people downcourt. Our bricks play into their hands.

No inside game so more outside shots with long rebs and fast break points for OKC. Nothing will change until they start to hit and quit CHOKING!!!!Image

I think Kobe is worried about a third foul. And honestly, he just can't carry us on both sides of the floor anymore especially against a team this good.

Somehow it's only 5.... Can't shoot much worse that we did sans Kobe..... Hopefully Bynum can take over while Kobe is on the bench.....

Too late. MB should have gone to Ebanks earlier in the series.

Yes, terrible shots. Not saying I'm not happy they are going in. I'm just saying we need to find a way to be more efficient offensively and that is going to require some kind of team concept if we stand a chance that's all.
