Mihm took care of the post by rebounding and shotblocking. He even hit a J from 20 ft. Bobbitt and Jones each did their part in the second half. Caron and Grant just coming off of injuries played well. Sasha was amazing. You can tell he had more confidence tonight than last game. Two 3's in a row in the 3rd quarter that were part of that comeback. Brian Cook was the surprise of the night. He sure gained my respect. He did it all tonight even having his own fastbreak.
Well you guys saw the game so I'll tell you what happened in the Arena. It was a small but loud crowd. Rudy T was barking out orders from the sidelines. He argued with the refs and showed a lot of emotion. The bench was really supportive. They cheered after almost every basket. Brian Grant looked physically good. In warmup he was moving very good and hitting all his mid range shots. I cant say the same for Caron though. I could tell he was a little sluggish at the start. He kept talking to Gary Vitti and pointing at his upper leg. He had to get it iced before tipoff. Jones was the first guy to come out of the tunnel at halftime. He was out there alone working on his jumpshot. Tierre Brown sat out the whole game but he was still energetic about his teammates. The crowd got really quiet in the 2nd quarter when the Lakers blew their lead and fell behind. The 3rd quarter was a different story. Their comeback got the crowd back in it. It got really quiet again when Fisher was lying on the floor. Everyone was concerned. When he got we all gave him a standing ovation. Overall is was a really fun game to watch. I had fun and I wished you guys couldve been there to witness for yourself the first victory of the new Lakers era.

This is what I've been trying to tell people. There's a reason he's still around - he's going to be good.

He's young and still makes a lot of mistakes. He needs to learn to play good D without reaching, needs to move his feet better so he doesn't foul so much. He didn't get to play much last year because he kept breaking his fingers but there's a reason he was a 1st round pick. He has a lot of talent and will be a solid role-player.
