Detailed comments on each of the guys that played in day 5.
Here's what they had to say about the Lakers:
Los Angeles Lakers
0 points, 3 assists, 1 steal, 1 turnover, 0-5 FG
-Javaris Crittenton had a very non-descript game compared with his first game performance, coming off the bench, playing less minutes, and not really getting very involved in his team’s offense.
-Crittenton did make a few nice assists on drive-and-dishes, but wasn’t able to hit on any of his shot attempts, mostly mid to long range jumpers.
-Crittenton did have one very nice sequence where he crossed the ball over twice on a drive, brought the ball behind his back, then went up with a scoop shot off the glass, though he wasn’t able to convert.
18 points, 11 assists, 5 rebounds, 1 steal, 2 turnovers, 7-10 FG, 2-2 3PT, 2-2 FT
-Jordan Farmar had an excellent game running the show for the Lakers, efficiently scoring and dishing out assists to his teammates.
-Farmar netted his assists on drive-and-dishes, dump-offs, in transition, and on pick-and-rolls, making excellent passes and keeping all of his team involved.
-Farmar had a few nice drives that he scored lay-ups on, but also made a clutch pull-up three-pointer in overtime.
23 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 turnovers, 8-13 FG, 3-5 3PT, 4-6 FT
-Coby Karl had a very good game for the Lakers, and if he keeps up this play, he may have an outside chance of making the roster, as he appears to be an upgrade over Sasha Vujacic.
-Karl consistently hit on his spot-up shots from outside, and also made some very nice cuts to the rim going right and left, finishing with both hands and getting to the line, never forcing the issue.
-Karl also made some nice passes in transition, drew a charge on the defensive end against an opposing big man, and played an overall smart game.
