Shaq & Kobe teams also did that. Untill it mattered.

I hate it when the refs just decide to call absolutely everything for a certain player...especially when they shift that mentality from one quarter to another.

Decent enough of a half from us though.

Poor Morris got hung out to dry by his teammates on that screen. Good effort on DWill though.

Deron is a different cover for Morris. He's about Morris' height while being beefier and bigger. Morris needs to play Deron differently than he does against guys like Parker.

We need some help from our bench. 6 bench points.

Take a shot for every Lopez set shot over Gasol or Williams taking kid Morris to school.

Deron will score, and we cant defend him but they need to be closer to Lopez....he is not quick and they just need to put some pressure on him, simple as that......nice first half, they are fighting and i can see some chemistry also, so i am happy

Keys to the game so far IMO:
16 FTs for them, and they made 11
8 Offensive rebounds allowed
They are shooting lights out (51% from the field, 60% from 3)

We are getting good looks, but missing open Js. The constant FTs took us out of rythm a bit. Kobe's distributing well but he only took 1 shot in the 2nd.. He needs to shoot a little more.

Dwight been lazy a few times. Not running immediately on TOs, and not putting a hand in Johnson's face at the elbow when Johnson had nowhere to go. Gasol some good rebounds, and some bad tentativeness on offense.

D Will playing aggressively. He has two fouls. we need to bait him into more. same with wallace. Kobe at the 3 point line had him in the air and could have drawn his third. Wallace's energy is killing us.

Duhon and Kobe and Jamison missing wide open 3s didn't help.

I agree except for the shooting.... we are shooting 56%....

Our defense is getting shredded. They have wide open looks and our defenders are running around with their backs turned and that is allowing the offensive rebounds. Same story every night.... tonight we are playing a real team.... that's the difference.

I hope we don't become the Pheonix Suns 2.0 with out coach being Mike. He's all about offense first and defense second. Our defense needs to be just as good as our offense can potentially be. What's the use of trading baskets?
