Breakdown: Kendall Marshall’s Big Night vs. Utah Jazz Analyzed

KendallMarshallOn Friday night, Kendall Marshall had himself a game. He had career highs in just about every statistical category, and helped the Lakers (finally) end their six-game losing streak. Even though the game was against the dismal Utah Jazz, considering what the Lakers have dealt with over the course of the season, any reprieve from losing was graciously accepted.

In the wake of Marshall’s big performance, Coach Nick over at BBallBreakdown took the time to analyze the performance, and try to figure out what happened that allowed L.A.’s new No. 12 to have the game of his life.

Obviously, it was a combination of strong offense from Marshall and weak defense from Utah that helped lead to the statistical barrage Marshall led. But, considering the dire straits the Lakers found themselves in headed into the game, any win is a big one.

    I’ll
    keep gasol!!! He looked revived when Kobe returned last month. Again
    when Kendall knows how to play him last night. His defensive effort
    & rebound looks better last night. I think nash knows how to set him
    up too! Farmar & Blake are just perimeter point guards. So Gasol
    should always be paired with Kendall, Nash, & Kobe!

    Trade Kaman + draft picks for Bynum!
    We
    now learn that we can easily reenforce w/o tanking because we are rich
    in other teams rejects that mostly shines in the Lakers.
    Melo or Luol Deng is my bet in the next free agency!

    If
    everyone becomes healthy by february, we will make the playoffs. But if
    we dream to win a ring, we trade kaman for bynum! to regain the
    rebounding dominance!!!!!!

      That makes no sence to trade KAMAN for BYNUM the does nothing for reduceing the cap – kamen is getting 3 mil—-gasol getting 19 mil-and the LAKERS will not keep BYNUM…

        Youre the one who doesnt make sense. the lakers are still weighting if they gonna give up the season or not! If kendall, young, gasol & lakers win atleast 50% of games till kobe/farmar/blake returns then they will be hoping for a playoff run!
        You dont know kobe! If the lakers win tomorrow against denver & some road games, then their spirit to make a playoff run is good!
        If that happen, then Bynum is the key to go all the way for a ring! His rebounding dominance!
        Don’t forget, the lakers really dont want to let go bynum, they just gambled that dwight will resign!!!! Most fans don’t want to let go bynum for Dwight because of his better offense.
        So the lakers are just in disguise that they want bynum just for cap dump, but truth they want to correct their mistake of trading him!!!! They keep talking that length is the key to beat miami.
        Lakers had been dominated in rebound by raptors, pistons, golden state, Okc, etc even w/ kaman, gasol, hill! they are not enough!!!! so the biggest free agent to have is bynum! we have plenty of scorers already. Nick young is an all star!
        cap penalties is nothing to the lakers if they see a sign that they can make a good run in playoffs.

          GOOO!!!! LAKERSS!!!

        • Mike Hunter

          50% with this team, all the way for a ring, rebounding dominance with Bynum and Nick Young an all star…
          Dam I need some of the stuff you’re smokin bro

    Marshall is young and shows promise. Keep playing him, win or lose. It’s all about next season, which players (youth) to keep and how to build from there.
