He also has one block. The raptors fear us under the basket! :jam2:

But lately he's looked terrible again, where he'll shoot ~30% for most of the game and maybe have a 4-4 stretch late.


Standard regression... He is about a 44%-45% shooter.

this is easily the worst defense our team has played. theyre not even trying. and raptors are just walking through this game and scoring at ease.

idk whats up with kobe but hes gotta try something different. pau has been good offensively but bad defensively as has the team. clark easily our best overall player tonight.

nash needs to man up and start doing what he did for the suns when they needed him. metta needs to get going. pau needs to man up on d. and im sorry but can we stop fouling and-1's...its like all we do

Does your TV only show the Lakers offense, you know there are two sides of the court right?

It's called defense.

That's how it typically goes, we're so great at team ball until the role players freeze up, especially on the road, then Kobe has to try and carry us and gets blamed for shooting too much. That and now he's asked to play tough d on great players all game, he's too old and something's gotta give, today it seems to be the shooting.

Kobe looking at kobe too. I was getting worried but the timeout might have settled him down a bit. He is looking to score and nothing else... Ugh...
