Nice block for Wes but he could of just caught that one.

above all else I think limiting their 2nd chance points should be priority #1

Faried has a non-stop motor, but he's staring to get a bit over-rated. he scores purely off his energy (a lot of put-backs) because his offensive skills are rudimentary. I like Hill more as a player.

BTW, Steve Blake's decision-making this game is a little off.

LA gets few FTs because they shoot almost all jumpers, save for J. Hill.

Nick Young is so bad defensively that he fakes himself out.

Blake making me eat my words. But that attempted lob from nearly half court set my teeth on edge.

Nice find by Blake to the streaking Nick Young.

Then push again finds Nick who finds X for the 3... Down 4.

We are fighting. Keep it up and take that W :jam2:

I can't be mad at Blake's mistakes... He's been the commander and chief and been consistent. His defense is actually pretty good

Hill's advantages over Faried.

- Better shotblocker, shot-alterer

- Better post defender. Knows how to use his body to keep the postup player off the block.

- Better postup player. Hill has some pretty damn good footwork in the post when he's allowed to ISO on the block.

And he also does all the energy work Faried does.

Don't forget we can get Hill for 4-5 million.

Faried is going to cost 10 million (his asking price)

Nick Young's shooting percentage would go up 5-6 points if he simply stopped shooting so many off-balance, fade-aways (especially from three range). Awful to watch.

Mozgov pushes Hill in the back and it's a foul on Hill?
