33 for Ariza. And here I thought he was a bum w/o kome getting him all these open looks. At least that's what LA fans have been trying to convince themselves of.

Have you guys actually been watching the games? Ariza's hitting just about every open shot he's getting, which won't continue to nearly the extent that it has so far. Coming into this game, he was shooting 52% from 3. He still has difficulty creating his own shot, and after....I dunno...more than THREE games into the season, he'll begin regressing to the mean. You're going to see a lot more 6-15 performances like tonight than 33 point games.

I like Ariza quite a bit, but I think you should probably wait more than 3 games before rubbing it in anyone's faces, lol.

Good win tonight against a soft Utah team though.

Beating Utah on the road is very sweet. I can't beleive this lack of size isn't killing us yet, we're actually outrebounding lately. But this type of total team effort is what I was expecting with no true star, but a bunch of pretty good players.

Say what you want, Utah is a tough place to play for any team, and the Rox won.
Speaking of soft, Dallas is pretty soft too right?

I'm sorry Pete, you are generally pretty even but I have to agree on this. You showed his preseason % and said something about him not being so good w/o kobe specifially creating open looks for him, as if no one else possibly creates shots for people. So we're just as entitled to use an equally small (although more legit cuz the games count) sample size to say: wait a minute this guys playing pretty well and maybe he's a pretty good fit in this offense that's pretty much based on creating for the open man.

And I'm pretty sure that I referenced it being preseason and that I'm interested to see how things go, as opposed to calling anyone out. I've watched 3 of your guys' games, and he hasn't added a skill set that makes me think that anything will be different...he's just ridiculously hot from 3 right now. I think he'll regress to the mean. We'll see.
