Well, haven't chimed in here yet cuz of work. Just saw the highlights. Caron's really stepping up his game, especially with the key steal, coming up big with Kobe fouled out. I have a feeling he'll definitely be the No. 2 guy here instead of Odom. Odom will be more of the utility man, doing all the things necessary on the floor (scoring, rebounding, defending, etc.)
Overall we played impressive. However, I have a growing concern with the team in regards to all the 3 victories we have so far. In the 3 wins, we could have won by a huge lead. But the team seems to have a bad habit of letting teams back in the game by slacking off in the 4th. A win is a win, but if they really want to become one of the elite in the NBA, they have to realize to keep pounding on your opponent even though they're down big. They gotta develop that killer instinct which I haven't seen yet. I know it's too early in the season, but 3 wins where the big lead almost fizzled is a slight discomforting thought.
On a positive note, it seems the team can also and easily win big against opposition. They just have to consistently move the ball around and not remain stagnant, and keep in motion, which was the key in our 3 wins so far.
Still, I'm glad for the Lakers victory and their constantly improving play.
