man...our d is so bad this year. If we are not going to practice Defense and with our age of our perimeter (Nash, Kobe, Artest), might as well switch to zone. So tired of seeing the other team just pentetrate and penetrate on us. Play zone and let them score on jump shots and hope your two 7 footers can get the board and deny the second chances that result from playing zone.

Odom played with that injury. It doesn't require surgery in most cases.


Lamar was kind of a warrior in that regard. Remember him with that banged up back that he played through to beat Denver in the WMC? He also played through a gnarly leg injury for us. Always respected that aspect of his play. It was some of the other aspects that I didn't (passing to Sasha who was on the sidelines for example :man10:).

wow. that finish to the quarter was just sad. poor decisions and terrible defense. I honestly don't understand why it's so hard to match up on getting back on D. like how does gay have that much time to shoot that wide open 3.

rebounding? ever heard of it....gasol didn't even jump once for the board just snacking it around and not getting back.

Nash getting smoked. I expect every shot to go in when he's guarding someone. they set hard screens while we don't.

Dwight seems to never get to do anything while he's in the game and of course he reinjures himself. Kobe was hot but common Kobe ISo while everyone stands around watching isn't gunna cut it on O. ball movement.

transition d was just horrible. gotta limit turnovers. rebound the ball!! and stop getting lost...rotations are terrible.

how does wroten I guy who averages 1 point a game go off on us. why do we always allow that to happen to us against no bodies.

play Meeks!

MWP understands 1 vs 1 defense, but sometimes his help defense is so-so. Clark understands both concepts.

Still pretty shocking that we're this bad. Just hard to watch.

And Nash with 5 turnovers. Come on man, we love you, but you can't do this to us, that is what is killing us.
And pick&roll defence is so so bad, it's not a suprise that every point guard that play against us is setting career high.....

Too many tough Kobe ISO shots. At this rate, he'll lose steam in the 4th and go 1/9 or something in a blowout loss.

Giving up 59 points in a half will have you in the lottery every year. The Laker defense is embarrassing. Mike D'Antoni will never, let me repeat, never be the answer to improving a defense.

Either the Lakers need to hire a defensive specialist to get this team on track or get rid of D'Antoni and find a coach who can get us to play defense and knows how to bring out the best of each player. Mike Brown had the former but completely missed out on the latter. Mike D'Antoni has neither. Jim Buss...great moves but you blew it BIG TIME with the D'Antoni hire.

Funny how people use to slam Phil Jackson saying any coach could with with the talented rosters he had. D'Antoni kills that argument.

I'm surprised were only down 9 with how bad our D is and how Conley is abusing Nash. his penetration is killing us bc our bigs rotation is poor and we don't rebound. so frustrating. Clark seems to be the only on putting any sort of effort on the boards.

limit turnovers. rebound the ball on both ends. slow it down. communicate and don't gamble on D. if Dwight doesn't come back the game is over. Zac and Marc will kill us the second half in the paint and boards as well as Conley's penetration if Dwight doesn't come back.
