    A healthy Pau Gasol is still better than most centers in the NBA…. not as agile, but the skill and knowledge of the game is immense…

    • NickOld

      Didn’t watch the game tonight, but Gasol actually had a few dunks in the highlights, probably more than he had all year.

    LAkers getting killed on the boards AGAIN in the fourth quarter… haasssstttt… what to do? Got to have more hustle, they have got to back to what they have been doing early in the game… now up by 9 with less than 6 minutes to play. They have been better defensively and the rotation is much improved this game…

      rebounding just killed us this game…. sigh… rebounding is an effort thing… more effort more effort more effort.

      • Daryl Peek

        I can’t be mad at the rebounding effort at all tonight. The Blazers are the best rebounding team in the NBA this season and we dominated the glass all of three quarters. That quick start was the buffer we needed to hold on for the win.

        Gasol ran more than I can ever remember him since becoming a Laker and ran out of gas in the fourth. He only had two rebounds and didn’t score much in the second half.

    Looks like the gamble to sub Bazemore in for Farmar paid off in that last portland play with Lakers down by one… the defense was terrific, now we just have to duplicate that and we come out with a win.

    • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

      I am so happy!!!! happy happy happy!!!!… Lakers win by one on Wes Johnson layup and a terrific defense on the other end.

      • Kay Carter

        Talking to yourself bud? lol defense was good tonight, which is part of the reason we won…..now if only we keep it up, especially next year

        • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

          Yeah, I was… nobody was around yesterday when I was posting… so I took the onus to at least liven the stage… lol… as for defense next year… that is still too far… today is where they will build that defense up.

          • Kay Carter

            i see lol…..yeah if we can keep it up, it’ll be nice
            Still need a few adjustments for our starting lineup but we’ll see what FO do

          • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

            I think they will… there is that guy I really love on purple n gold…. he plays both ends of the floor… doesn’t mind the ball in others hands and a good stretch 4 in MDA system… Deng is his name… if we can snatch a defensive center that loves to roll to the basket, like perhaps Okafor?

          • Kay Carter

            knowing the coach he’ll play a Okafor-Wes-Deng-Kobe-Farmer Lineup, or have Kobe at SG nd bazemore at SF but i rather us draft eitha Embiid or Cauley-stein( more defensive minded than Embiid) than to get okafor since this team run a face paced offense plus okafor isnt all that good lol rather keep pau than get him

          • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

            There are at least 3 reasons to have Okafor. 1. He can be had for cheap, which is a plus for the FO. 2. He is basically a pnR player, and dives hard to the basket, 3. He is a defense first player… and he runs the floor better than a certain spaniard.

            If we draft Embiid, he will still have to get used to the NBA… it’s at least a 3-5 years project before we will be able to determine if he becomes a reliable player. Kobe has only a 2 years window. We draft him, but I doubt we will count on him on a regular basis compare to seasoned vet in Okafor or Pau.

          • Kay Carter

            What’s your obsession with Deng? but i Give you 3 reason why we shouldnt….1. he’s old nd we are pretty much in rebuilding mode to get younger players 2. he’s been on the decline so he isnt no more of a help than Pau who is still playing consistent basketball despite ppl nd fans say about him….. 3 if he’s defense 1st why isnt his #’s for defense sucks? lol

            but let me ask you, would you rather have Ariza or Deng? Ariza is a proven vet with great defense nd have been putting up great #’s 3pt wise

          • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

            your being funny,right?

            Deng old and Ariza young? They are both 28 years old.

            Deng on the decline? That’ absurd. Last time I look he took over the Bulls team last year and early this year with Rose injured.

            His numbers for defense sucks? Why don’t you read what the coaches and NBa players say about that? Deng is one of the better defender at his position. Not to mention that he can also carry an offensive load. Not too many players are asked to do that in this league. Ariza is never asked to do that even in Washington. How is he better than Deng?

            I would TAKE Deng anytime over Ariza in any given circumstances. His skill set is varied than Ariza, Deng can play the 4 which Ariza can’t. He defends LBJ better than Ariza does. Deng takes on the offensive load more than Ariza does. Oh, did I mention that he is a 2 times all star? Below are some of Deng’s stats…

            Defensive Win Shares
            2006-07 NBA 5.6 (5)
            2010-11 NBA 5.2 (4)

            Win Shares
            2006-07 NBA 11.3 (9)

            2 times all star
            1 time 2nd all defensive team

            Ariza is nowhere near Deng as an NBA player defensively. the only area where Ariza is better than Deng is on the steals department, all other department he lags behind Deng. If you don’t believe me go to basketball reference website.

          • Kay Carter

            lmao dude you did all that an i was talking aboutr okafor the whole time lmao…..i was just wondering why you like deng so much, then i went on about okafor vs pau

          • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

            Career wise…
            Ariza is in the group of Matt Barnes.
            Deng is in the company of Barkely, Tom Chambers.

            You know what, I can go on and on with facts about Deng over Ariza…. but let FO decide on that in the free agency.

  • e3bonz

    Overall, a good game, the Lakers came out full force and get a win. A little scary at the end tho.

    • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

      Portland is a very strong team…. wasn’t expecting to steal one this game… but I am so happy happy happy!!! we got the win.

      • e3bonz

        Team play tonight and some good hustle. Surprise, the Lakers can play defense, at least part of the time.

  • LakersHeatBeef
