Why do you think we needed such an early shot? Defense was not superb. Kobe could have easily stepped in for a closer shot. Shooting that far away, unless it's against the Celtics with 2 seconds left and at the buzzer, is idiotic. Sorry.[/quote]
because te game was a lost cause at that point unless we hit a shot right off the bat! we lost this game the moment hedo hit the 3 and we wouldd've lost in a free throw deal too

Suns:

22-40 3pts 55%
21-44 2pts 48%

That's crazy! Almost a 50/50 split of 2 and 3 pointers, and we did nothing to stop it.

22 ... with at least half of them being WIDE OPEN. There's a reason they made so many of them.

That's not the point. Great and consistent defense in the regular season makes us that much better in the playoffs.

I understand that, and i agree. I wish this team would get into a defensive rhythm, but they might not need to. remember how terribly we played last April? Then we turned it on when we needed to.

I guarantee you Phil would have preferred an easier shot closer to the basket.

By all means please make more excuses for the team. lol.


Dude. Im disgusted as anyone, trust me. I HATE every single point scored against us and every single loss. Ive just grown accustomed to the sleepwalking through the regular season.

If the Suns miss 3 3's we win.

This was their championship game, ESPECIALLY since we prevented them from going to the FInals. This game meant more to them, than us. Not saying LA didn't want to win, (because who wants to lose?) but PHX wanted this more.

Kobe is a great player, but lacks effort in the regular season defensively. I feel like if we would have kept Kobe and DFish out for the rest of the game then we probably would have won. Even better, Kobe decides to play great hustling defense.

It counts now. Lucky we even had home court advantage last year, if we didn't draw Boston wouldn't have even had it in the finals.

It counts in the playoffs...we are still gonna get around 60 wins and the number 1 seed. We know we can count on our defense when we need it. (ex: games 6 and 7 vs Celtics)

I don't know how yet, but I'm sure Gasol will be the one to blame, again.

The whole team is too blame. It's not one person. I really hate how people always try to put the blame on one player.

We didn't start contesting until we went to Luke and Lamar at the 4 and 5. Switching with Pau, Artest, and Fish on the court just ****ed us in the *** because of mobility issues.

To be honest every time this team has struggles this year it has been to small ball. The Denver game, the phoenix game, the late surge by Sacramento, the Minny game, and even the 4th quarter of the Houston game.

We have dominated the bigger lineups of all teams and the two teams who refused to go small at all in Golden State and Portland.

You really see the fact this team has 5 totally new rotation players playing on defensive rotations as two guys either go for the same rotation or choose to not rotate at all under the assumption a teammate has it. Last year the offense with the team really didn't click early as the tried to adjust to Ron replacing Trevor and making Pau & Drew fit together.

What I'm saying is that we are a work in progress. We are 8-2 which is great, but we still have yet to really build chemistry and trust on our team defense. Guys are doing their own 1 on 1 job, but don't know one another which should be corrected later in the year. So lets not worry or panic, and just accept the fact that this team will have to learn how to cover for one another just like that team last year had to learn how to share the ball together

In other news, Odom will have a MRI tomorrow to see what is wrong with his right foot which apparently has been sore the past week. Please be all right :man5:

Lol. True. But despite my comment, of course I hope he's alright and it's nothing serious. Just hope it's sore cause it was stepped on or something.

I hope it is nothing, but if it is going to be a nagging thing I rather them sit Lamar and lose every game next week. The guys has played alot of ball the past couple of years so you have to be careful, and at the end of the day LA needs health more than they do the best record in the league.

^ I really think he's fine. Phil thinks it's a bone bruise. If we weren't on the road this week, Drew would be practicing and getting ready to play. He'll return soon.
