It's not blasphemy, without Drew Pau goes back to being the 2nd option, he goes back to the post where he played when we won titles. I don't think we're better without Drew (just maybe quicker and more offensive possessions), just different.


We're good enough to outscore most teams like this though.

maybe not 18pts in the 1st half...but against most PF/C if hes the 2nd option and is actually in the post not 15ft midrange, he has the advantage and can be very effective to go to

Still gotta put the ball in the basket no matter who's guarding you, 18 points on 9-13 shooting in one half is pretty damn good no matter who's guarding you. We've seen Pau struggle against nobodies in the past, so I'll take him dominating nobodies.

Our starting 5 has 4 players that play better in the post than just about anywhere else on the court.... Having Bynum out leaves more room for Pau and Kobe in there..... It's not rocket science...

This is why I think if we are going to continue to have the "twin towers" we need a SF that can shoot and create his own shot rather than one that is at HIS best in the post while being the 4th best post player in the starting lineup.....

Not sold on that long term, Blake doesn't always hit 3's, Pau rarely is gonna put up 18 in a half, and defense wins championships, that's what Drew brings.

Since the trade deadline Pau has been decisive and physical.... something he hasn't been for over a year... It bodes well for our chances in the playoffs...

It's too bad a move to the bench would piss off Drew and kill Gasol's confidence, because either one would make one hell of a 21st century McAdoo/Thompson.

We're using Ramon the way we should. Let him run the show. I like the way Kobe was scoring his points off the ball in the 1st quarter. If he can do that instead of relying on constant ISO's, we'll be in better shape going forward.

Against a team that is decimated with injuries but tomorrow we play a team with an inside presence.... Sessions won't find it as easy and Pau will be challenged on defense all night..... I don't think this team would be in this position against the Clips w/o Drew....

Unfortunately the offseason combined with Pau's 19 million dollar salary will solve this for us.... Just hope we get a couple good players with that inevitable TPE......

Most impressive is the way Sessions is passing the basketball. He's also had several robbed assists, but he's extremely purposeful with his dribble and keeps his head up at all times. Mark of a good PG.

He's awesome and is the engine running our team. Also mad props for having D Will zone out and even more props for getting him in foul trouble.

We didn't really build the lead with threes though. Most of our points are actually in the paint.

We could've kept Green and cut Ebanks.. Why did we keep Ebanks? 'Cause he brougth athleticism? 'Cause he had potential? 'Cause he could shoot? Green is much more athletic than anything we have, he still has potential and he's a better shooter that Ebanks.

Yep.... we've been breaking down the defense (being generous here) fairly easily tonight... Sessions is the biggest reason as well....

Hindsight is 20/20, why didn't 28 other teams pick up Green either?
