Just terrible, not sure why D'Antoni can't draw up better plays. It's like Del Negro not calling a timeout in the Clippers game 2 nights ago. Incompetent coaches, fuck!
those free throws:fu:
four straight misses when you're down 1 in the last two minutes.
as for kobe, don't know if you watched the game, but that dude was sick. i'll agree that it was a throwback to kobe ball, but i don't think it was a matter of him demanding the rock as much as it was everyone else tossing it to him because they didn't know what to do with it. i would argue there were some really atrocious refereeing, both ways possibly, but as a partisan, it seemed to me to be more against the lakers. of course, with the way they were shooting free throws, i'm not sure any more attempts would have done any good. and i still can't figure out what happened on that last play. truly horrible.
