Any shrinking in the wash?
Pretty obvious stuff to say. Kobe played great defense on Rondo and shot the lights out, but he got little help and he turned the ball over way too much. Odom didn't play poorly, but I question his interior defense in the 2nd half. On the same note, I think Gasol played much worse than his stats suggest; his defense and rebounding left much to be desired. Bynum is a really huge part of the puzzle; offensive rebounding is why the Celts won today. It started early, even,...

Perkins, on the other hand, sets them every single time. i don't think Doc really wants to call attention to moving screens because if they were called by the book, Perkins would foul out in 6 minutes Honestly the 1-2 pick and roll was a huge part of the Lakers' success in Game 3 and a lot of the screens that Kobe set for...
I posted b4 about the issue where refs sometimes just call a ball out on a defender instead of a loose ball foul. Hollinger wrote the same thing in his article about the replay system today: http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/playo...PERDiem-100609 Quote: But the Rondo-Odom play shows us the limitations of constricting the officials' options on replay reviews. Game 3's replay deluge comes in the wake of a crucial review with 1:59 remaining in Game 2 that gave...

On the other hand, the same can be said for the other 4 guys...they weren't doing their best to get involved which left Kobe no choice but to make a shot. These are both true.

They wouldn't be where they are obviously without him sup lebron where you at oh ya that's right gone fishing. The left hand floater was a thing of beautfy as was the drive with two defenders in his face and the foul and the fade away bank. The superb save out of bounds, sick block and...
Quote: Originally Posted by RFX45 Horrible flaw int he replay system though, it works if it's a clean play but when it is an obvious foul like Rondo slapping Odoms arm and they can't do anything about it but give the ball back to Boston, then it affects the game in a bad way too. Yeah, that's pretty bad. But tell me if I'm the only one: I always thought that officials sometimes didn't call a touchy foul in loose ball situations where, let's say,...
Fisher: My god. Kobe did his dumb taking over the offense thing in the 2nd half and Fisher was the ONLY player to get LA through this horrific offensive stretch. In the 4th, after Fisher had made just two shots, I was literally saying how great of a game he was having, and then he went on to score 7 more points. These were all SUPER clutch buckets because of how poorly his team was doing. Honestly, if he just hit two shots and nothing else in the 4th, he would have done...
