Kobe and the overall offense looked much better. The grade of Pau's decline has been incredible. I don't think he's even an average NBA player anymore.
I agree that Kobe looked better but it just isn't gunna work in this system. D'antoni's offense involves constant ball movement to find the open shooter. As soon as the ball touches Kobe's hands the flow stops and it seems like nobody knows wtf to do. Just so frustrating to me seeing that it's Kobe's last few years in the league and we're wasting it with a coach that won't be able to get it done. And yeah, Hill needs to play way more at this point. He only played 19 minutes but still gave us a huge boost every time he came in
Last night, the Lakers scored 108 points, shot 48.8% from the field, shot 32 free throws, and had 11 turnovers. That should be good enough to win. Kobe had 11 shot attempts. 5 guys had double digit shot attempts, and 6 guys scored in double figures. 108 should win you games. We gotta play better defense, and find a big that's willing to step up and protect the basket.
