The offense is just a beauty to watch and we have don't have Nash playing yet. :jam2:

If we can fix the defense.. then wow..

Perfect offense. Can't execute better then this. As long as Dwight can kick it out, we're good.

So Mike Brown literally made every player on our team worse than they actually are.

If our goal is to outscore the other team by out-shooting them, we'll win plenty of regular season games, and that's where it will end.

Playing tight and pissed off can do that for you.

Pau Gasol is a big reason why our D is so bad, little to no effort every time...and horrible at helping.

It's all about the free flowing system, getting good looks. As MDA says, the ball has to have energy when it's moving.

If we can start playing any sort of D soon, we'll dominate. I don't see how you can stop this team with Nash dishing, Pau getting mid-range J open, Kobe striking from anywhere, and Dwight dunking and kicking the ball out.

I actually tried to watch it closer - we play defense. We do. It just breaks sometimes, so it looks like we don't.

We'll be OK.

Pretty much, that offense was so stupid it made players think constantly instead of just playing, and he seemingly sucked the life out of the team overall.

Maybe. But I don't know that that's our strategy. We've played, what, five games with Bickerstaff as coach? And two with Pringles, and Pringles isn't even coaching yet. We're looking MUCH better than we did under Brown, so I'm going to focus on the positive for now.

Well it could be 48 to 40 or 68 to 60.... it's the same advantage but this is a hell of a lot easier to watch....

This is ridiculous number of points we're scoring right now. And I mean, everyone looks comfortable on the offensive end. Morris actually looks respectable. :man3:

I noticed our defensive lapses have mostly been after a transition bucket. The players forget to get back, but our D in the half court has mostly been solid.

Dominant centers with poor free throw technique end up on the Lakers. Wilt was an underhand shooter like Rick Barry. It didn't take away from his production.

When is the last time we had BOTH PG's for us playing well and knocking down shots?

8 point lead, with great shooting %, and our guys look like they are having fun.

I'll take it. But man, can we get Nash back? How much better can this offense be with him starting? :man3:
