Forward Three wrote:This was far from the worst game of the year, even if the Lakers defense was pretty horrible, they still are showing signs of improvement in many other areas, it's bizarre how many shots they were missing though, wide open shots, at the basket shots, tough shots and easy shots they simply were not converting on the baskets they 'should' have converted on. But it boils down to defense, you know things are bad when in the final 6 minutes your opponent scores on nearly every possession save for the ones where they just took a bad shot and missed. Still, even with the bad defense, I still think the Lakers would win this one if they were just hitting their shots at a more normal clip. Could have been a lot worse.



No, just no. We're done with the moral victories. You don't lose home games at this juncture to bad teams

Well, I hope we know why we won the first game against Philly. No Jrue.

Disgraceful.

Is this team coached? Is there any sort of coaching going on? Because I see no changes.

so maybe next game Dwight and Pau can show up. Kobe can pass. Nash run the show in final minutes of close games.

Lakers minus Kobe:
23-55 FGs, 2-16 threes, 15-23 FTs

I'll take Kobe calling his number when they're playing like that.

This team isn't working and it isn't going to work, time to make changes and start making them phone calls shopping Pau and whoever else it takes outside of Nash/Kobe/Dwight to get some quality players.

The excuses are old, the problems are the same, it is time to move on.

shooters shooters more shooters. mwp just isn't consistent, pau can't hit a mid range jumper to save his life, and morris belongs in the d-league.

Kobe should not be allowed to do what he did at the end of the game when we have Nash. he made an effort to not pass tonight. Nash runs the show in the final minutes and good things happen.

Defense SUCKED tonight and Holiday's dunk summed out how bad we were when we needed stops. I just can't get over how pathetic out bigs were tonight especially Pau. Hill should have been in for Pau or even Jamison. why was Jamison not played?!?! we needed offensive...our defense wasn't there anyways so why not play Jamison?!

Hill should have closed the game out IMO ride the guy who earned it. Pau was a zero. So was Dwight but at least he did something on the other end.

This was a terrible game for 48 minutes. They got whatever they wanted against our terrible D or whatever that was.

that's misleading bc a lot of the offensive struggles were due to lack of ball movement. When Kobe is making a effort to NOT pass the ball and chuck bad shots up then it's gunna hurt the team.

Quick Recap
Lakers fell behind early, fought back to take a brief lead in the second half, fell behind double digits, and finished with the loss, 103-99.

It's hard to find bright spots in the loss tonight. Philly is a weak team, was on the road, and LA should have been well-rested. Instead LA looked dead. They shot 39% on FGs, 14% on threes, and 67% on FTs. Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard combined for 18 points on 3 of 19 shooting. Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner did the damage for Philadelphia, combining for 48 points, 15 assists, and 15 boards.

LA faces the red hot Clippers in LA on Friday.

Game Hero: Jordan Hill had a great first half. Steve Nash played a good offensive game, but his D cost the team big time down the stretch. You don't love to see 29 FGA from Kobe with 0 assists, but he was the offensive cog.

This is plain and simple: bulls***. And you know it. The team sucked offensively right form the get-go, and no one was complaining in the first half about Kobe's "lack of ball movement." That's because it's a fabrication. A post hoc quick explanation.
