Atleast we found out Earl can really ball. MWP was killing it until those last couple of shots

At least, if we can show up with that kind of effort when our bigs come back, maybe our season is not completely lost.

Yet another game where we close in and completely lose our composure in the last few possessions. THAT IS ENTIRELY ON THE COACH.

Best thing I saw all night (that matters for our season, unlike Clark's excellent game): Kobe played some awesome defense down the stretch.

We played defense for a long stretch towards the end. If we showed that kind of defensive intensity and focus for the whole game, we'd win this game.

We played with heart and intensity. We just have to keep building on that.

They showed some heart out there, no question about it.
If only they had played some D in the first half...

How about when Kobe got the outlet pass goes downcourt and ignores Nash completely leaving him standing around at the top of the key. Total suck! :mad1:

seriously though every game has followed this formula. If only they could muster this end game energy on D for some stretches earlier in games. Still loving the heart and hustle out there just came up short cause of some easy buckets given up.

Never down 20, and the meaningless comeback wasn't meaningless. So, nah?

I know I should be mad, but Im really happy with the energy they've showed the last 2 games. Been waiting for that hunger and focus for a while

With games like these, you take the positives, it shouldn't have even been close and we fought back. We learned how to play team ball and trust players like clark, this has got to give us a boost of confidence when we get our bigs back. There is hope, there's still a lot of season left. Proud to be a fan of the purple & gold.

We didn't win so yeah it was meaningless. If you think consistently making comebacks against teams that stop playing late in the 4th is where this team needs to be right now you should probably re evaulate your standards.

Magic making a good point: MWP made some stupid decisions down the line.

Clark played a great game. I think Nash played pretty well, too.

I think this is Lakers season in a nutshell: bad decisions down the line.

Come on, when you have a game winning look, unless it's a closeout game on your season, that's not meaningless. Maybe you should re evaluate your standards. Wouldn't you say that Clark played a good game, for instance? Well, they lost. But that doesn't make it meaningless. Losing doesn't make achievements meaningless.
