Ok, can PJ get Slava the hell out of there. He cannot guard KG. And our defense needs to pick up. ONce again we had an opportunity to open this game up and we just flop and don't cover anyone and allow them right back in it.
I think its time for the refs to call some damn offensive fouls, KG only took Payton and drove him half way across the damn lane to leave predator wide open. My god, didn't they ever hear of a moving screen?
I kinda like the half Kobe played. Not only did he get everyone involved, but he built up the confidence of his teammates for the second half. As GP said when Kobe is ready, he will go off. And also I"m assuming he is trying to reserve as much energy as possible for Thursday.
