the Lakers are allowing 90.7 points per game and 41.8 percent shooting to lead the Western Conference in both categories. Those averages dip to 85.9 points and 40.0 percent at home, where Los Angeles has won six straight.


:jam2: Eliminate the plethora of turnovers every game and that would dip below 90 and below 40 percent shooting. That's rather impressive considering the lack of defense we had last year.

On another note I give Brown a 1 testicle out of 2 so far with the rotations and managing the lineups. He has the testicle to sit Metta down for quarters, halfs, etc.. when he is playing like crap, but does not have the other testicle to do the same for Fisher who is playing just as bad as MWP.

Overall you can't argue his work ethic, defensive approach and upbeat, talkative, always moving style he brings to every game.



He's sat Fisher at least twice to finish games that I can think of..... It isn't that he doesn't have the spheres as much as it's he doesn't have the personnel....

The end of games he has done that I'll give him that, but there have been games where Blake was playing well and Brown has taken him out of the game and put Fish in and it just makes you go :man3:. My point was more towards Fisher's leash is considerably longer than Ron's. Both give equally awful play at times and I feel both should be on the same leash when it comes to game performance.

Take last game for example vs. the Grizz. Metta plays like crap only plays 13 minutes and Barnes gets 35 minutes because he was doing great. Fish plays like crap that game and plays 24 minutes. Blake plays above average and better than Fish, even though both had 5 TO's, but Blake was hitting shots and playing D and he gets 24 minutes. The same as Fish.

Fisher seems to be getting a lot of respect...The only reasoning on why he is still getting a lot of minutes. The question is, why is he so respected?

^^Recently there was a game in Boston and one in Orlando where he pulled our collective arses out of the fire with great performances. There's the fact that there are only 2 point guards and both are over 30.... Blake can't play 36 minutes.... 28 to 30 would be his limit IMHO.

Fisher came in out of shape and hasn't hit his stride yet. I don't expect that he will improve a lot, but I do expect him to start hitting his shots and playing a little better. We still have a screaming need at the point.... don't get me wrong there.....

Brown closed the game with Blake at the controls. Having Walton cover Frye out on the perimeter instead of Gasol who was losing him on rotations. The first stabilized the offense, the second helped the defense when Frye was having clean looks at the three point line.

If I read this line before tonight's game I would have laughed but you're 100% right.

He took LeBron's Cavs to the Finals by stressing defense and letting LeBron do his thing. Of course the Cavs lost because LeBron folds in the playoffs. So now Mike's letting the legendary Kobe do his thing with our newfound defense--might we see a different result with this combination? Let's hope...

Big ups for finally playing Morris, going zone which confused the crap out of the Jazz and only playing MWP long enough to see that he does in fact still suck and needs to be benched. :jam2:

Dude is the king of bromance. I swear I've never seen this much manlove between our guys. Kobe hugging Pau, Pau hugging Drew, Barnes sneaking in for a threeway between Drew and Pau tonight after Bynum's block. I feel like while we're still struggling in certain areas, we're growing stronger as a team and the chemistry between each of the players gets better and better with each game.

There are certain things Luke Walton does very well. I have said a few times on this board that he's the best trap defender we have. There are things he can do to benefit the team when he's healthy. And then there's the stuff he can't do at all...

I had a few moments here:

Artest's "I'm just putting my arms over my head" (and then elbows people)
Kobe's third quarter...especially the triples.

I'm actually very happy that he is there for his players. Loved how he wanted to kick Griffin's red *** for shoving Morris.

I was trying to figure out the offense today, but it looked like there was nothing going on. No movement off the ball. At least the tri kept players and the ball moving a little.

It's sad to say that this was what I initially expected when we first hired Mike Brown.

Our offense is exactly what he ran in Cleveland.... before it was, give the ball to LeBron, get out of the way and let him do his thing. Now it's... give the ball to Kobe, get out of the way and let him do his thing.

The problem is that it may have been okay in Cleveland when their bigs were roleplayers that knew their roles were just to hustle and grab rebounds whenever the King misses a shot, or if he passed to a open guard for a 3 point shot.

However, with the Lakers we have far more talented bigs and this offensive "system" doesn't take advantage of that. I am by no means knocking on Kobe for his shot selection, because it's extremely entertaining to watch Kobe go for 40 every night... but it sure seems like we're running the "LeBron" system, where Pau and Drew get the ball only if Kobe decides to give it to them.....

... add in the fact that we don't have any deadly three point marksmen out there to hit a open shot. Instead of Mo Williams and Daniel Gibson, Kobe is passing it to Derek Fisher who has been miserable this season.

^Unfortunately, while everybody seems to think the Lakers are a lock for the WCF, I believe this team has a tons more work to do. Give the ball to Kobe and let him score seems like the best option right now because not only is he hot, he's the only player we have who can create anything off the dribble. Darius Morris is next, but he's an inexperienced rookie. With our personnel we pretty much have no choice.

Mitch has some work to do. Get us another veteran player who can create off the dribble to relieve the pressure on the Black Mamba!
