Its amazing how Nash is actually worse than the typical bad defensive player, because when you're matched up against him its like your in practice. He really doesn't even attempt to do anything at all most of the time.

We need some energy. Perhaps put Barnes in.

They're back to not trying. On the flip side, it's not Ike Penix can really stop us. They're already in foul trouble. All we have to do is pound it on them, but we keep chucking from deep.

Oh, no question about it. But why are we doing that instead of playing decent D is beyond me. Is that a game plan for today or what? :man3:


They aren't exactly burning it up....under 50% from the floor and 33% from 3....they can actually do better if we don't jump on them.

Shannon needs to stop going after steals. We continue to get burned.

Nash looks pretty good for a guy with a squishy pelvis....

you guys think if phil ever told his team "you guys are embarrassing right now", you think they'd even care and want to actually win and dismantle teams? or still be lax... :bang: :bang: :bang:

We're lucky to be down by only 4. Giving up 31 in the 1st? Pathetic. :mad1:
Thanks for the sig, Jr. Kobe.

Could be worse, right? I'm sure they won't drop 120 on us.

Our bench is giving us more activity. Nice to see.

More activity but dumb stuff as well like Shannon going for a steal instead of just playing straight up

Yes, I've seen it before where they give up so many 1Q points and come back to win... they are conserving energy but the risk is Phx catching fire...

Here is where Dudley will go off.

Lakers will see a lot of zone until they stop settling for jump shots and work the ball inside out.

they also need to run on misses. There is a reason every coach runs that D against the Lakers. seriously.

I forgot about Brooks. Bad matchups for the Lakers without Drew. Don't have a good feeling, unless Kobe goes off tonight.
