Mike D’Antoni: “We Played With Heart Until We Ran Out Of Gas”

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Los Angeles LakersThe Los Angeles Lakers have fallen bellow .500 after their loss to the Golden State Warriors Saturday night.

Los Angeles was competitive in the first half, but it could not stick with the young and talented Warriors team for much longer. In the third quarter, the Warriors went on a massive run and put the game out of reach for the Lakers. Mike D’Antoni and his coaching staff were already shorthanded and the lack of point guards on the roster did not help at all.

After the game, D’Antoni spoke to the media and talked about what exactly happened in the loss. The coach was pleased with the effort his players gave but saw that they just lost “gas” as the game progressed.

The Warriors held the Lakers to just 15 points in the third quarter and it helped them open up a comfortable lead. Los Angeles will be getting Jordan Farmar back in the lineup soon and even though he is no MVP candidate, his presence on the court will help the team on both ends of the court.

    Fair enough.

    They also ran into the reality that comes with how difficult it is to beat a playoff bound team on the road without the 3 superstars they started the year with and all the injuries,rotations,etc…. It is not easy to play without the PG’s they started the season and developed chemistry with. We have to expect a few bumps in the road. Hopefully we get the return of a few healthy players soon and hold it together until even more help returns. Go Lakers !

    The Lakers need to first trade Gasol, Nash, Blake & Kaman… (All for ex contracts & first round picks) The starting line up should be Marshall, Young, Hill, Henry & Johnson…(Until Farmar comes back then Marshall bench) Lets see them play, learn & earn their long term deal…

      so are you saying trade expiring contracts for expiring contracts? plus im not sure who would give up a first round pick for 2 healthy players a injury PG who wont be back till feb and a PG who no one knows if he will ever play again

      • Marty Susman

        Gasol could help a team win a ring if they have a god solid player line up. He could help Indiana, OKC & help the really rotten teams win a few more games.. Monroe will be leaving the Pistons, if Greg announces he wants to play for the Lakers he would force the Pistons to move him now. We can package Gasol & say Blake or Gasol & Kaman for Monroe….

        • Nick Christopherson

          Yea but Monroe will be a restricted free agent this summer and he’s already drawn attention. That’s a risky trade

  • jeremy

    well lakers would have more gas if they use more guys and not make guys have to play big min. i would of love if they use kelly to give some guys some rest. it seem like were making guys like meeks and Henry play 90% of the game.guys like meeks and Henry were problay burn out after playing 42 min the night before.
