Week in review for the Lakers

December 30th, 2012

The Lakers finished their games for 2012 with a rather promising run. The taste of bitterness is still there for every Lakers fan, who saw their team struggling through a very long period, but things went pretty better this last week for LA. The outcome is 2 wins and 1 loss and a much needed 0.500 record. One of the two home wins came against the well-formed New York Knicks on Christmas Day. The Lakers will start the next year with a 15-15 record and really seem like they will start from scratch.

The first game of the week was an inter-conference playoff-like derby for LA when they faced New York Knicks, one of the best-formed teams in the NBA this season. The Knicks entered the game with a 20-8 record and had really shown their teeth up to that time to every opponent they had faced. However, Kobe Bryant and his company reached a top performance to give the Lakers the win, that wasn’t decided till the last minute of the game. Big story for LA, the return of star point guard Steve Nash, who proved to be a key factor for the Lakers not only for that game but for the next ones, too. He finished with 16 points to go along with 11 assists and made a nice comeback after missing 24 games with a small fracture in his lower left leg. Kobe and Melo led all scorers with 34 each and made sure the crowd and the fans watching from home had a joyful night by providing great spectacle and hitting some tough acrobatic shots.

Next stop was Denver where the Lakers fell to the Nuggets, despite the 40 points that Kobe scored. All Nuggets that started finished in double digits and also, Corey Brewer scored 27 points off the bench to match his career high. The Nuggets won the game by 12 points, 126-112 and broke the Lakers’ 5-game winning streak, surprisingly, the longest of the season for LA.

The team finished its gaming obligations for the year with the best way, rolling past the Trailblazers at the Staples center 104-87. Dwight Howard helped his team surge past their opponents with 21 points and 14 rebounds, while Kobe, once again led all scorers with 27. Steve Nash had another productive game with 10 assists to go along with 6 points. It’s made clear that with Nash on the floor, the basketball IQ of the whole Lakers team is raised and that makes everyone seem like he’s playing better. Pau Gasol ended up scoring 15 points, including two three pointers, a fact we don’t see often from him.
The Lakers now rank 9th in the Western Conference, right on the verge of the playoff clinching 8th spot, but have to continue improving their workflow and bonding of the team to enter the playoffs with hopes for a good run. Surely they do have all the pieces in the team to make this happen.

2013 starts for the Lakers with a game versus the Philadelphia Sixers on January 1st and then comes a Los Angeles City rival matchup on Friday against the Clippers. Last game for the first week of 2013 comes on Sunday against the Denver Nuggets at home.



Lakers hold off rolling past the Knicks on Christmas day

December 26th, 2012

On a Christmas day game the Lakers escape with a close win at the Staples Center against the New York Knicks, 100-94. It was a fascinating game full of tension, highlight plays and a dramatic finale. It was the fifth straight win for the Lakers, a season-high for them and got back to 0.500. The Lakers are happy to have Steve Nash back on court after a long period of absence due to a leg injury. “I don’t know if [Nash] is all of it, but he’s maybe the last piece that makes it work. There are a lot of pieces that you have to have.” said Head Coach Mike D’Antoni.

It was a game that came down to the final minutes before the Lakers could come up with a victory. With about a minute left in the game, J.R. Smith hit a 3 pointer to cut the deficit back to 2 points but then missed on another three that could have tied the game. The Lakers kept a 3 point lead with just 15” before the end and it was Pau Gasol with a penetration from the top of the line that sealed the win for his team with a strong two-handed dunking finish. Gasol has been heavily criticized for his soft play in the paint, but it was him that made the most important play of the game.

The league’s leading scorers, Carmelo Anthony and Kobe Bryant, didn’t let down the crowd and both reached a terrific performance. Melo shot 13-23 to finish with a team high 34 points while Kobe finished with as many points on 14-24 from the field. The Knicks saw a great performance from their reserve J.R. Smith who had 25 points with three shots from downtown. For the Lakers, Metta World Piece had a great game with 20 points off the bench, including several tough shots and 3 out of 6 made from beyond the arc.

It was the Knicks who controlled the game during the first three quarters, but in the last one, they couldn’t connect offensively. Of course their opponents didn’t let this opportunity pass away and punished New York to win this Christmas Day game. All the pieces of the puzzle are now there for the Lakers, who have won in all games after Nash’s return and not only that. The whole complexion and the game style seem different for them. The deep-minded game and the panoramic vision of the two-time MVP guard make things easier for all his teammates. He finished with 16 points to go along with 11 assists. We all saw some easy baskets from Howard or Kobe and even other LA players coming off the great set up from Nash. “It’s so early in the season to have turned a corner,” Bryant said. “We have everybody in the lineup and we’re starting to see how we want to play.”

Next up for the Lakers comes a Wednesday night game at Denver against the Nuggets. They then return home to face the Portland Trailblazers at their last game of the year. The Knicks play on Wednesday at Phoenix against the Suns.

A close game in LA, the Lakers fall to the Magic 113-103

December 5th, 2012

How much trouble are the Lakers already? After last week’s slump the team kept on playing at a mediocre level thus failing to turn a close game on their favor, allowing 40 points from their opponents on the last quarter. The Orlando Magic were trailing by four late in the third quarter, when they wisely changed their defense against Dwight Howard, sending him to the free throw line, his weak spot. After consecutive fouls in the post, Howard, a below 60% free throw shooter in his career, missed 10 shots in 18 attempts, giving Orlando the chance to light up and gain momentum. His former team kept rolling and opening the gap in the fourth quarter and finally gave the Lakers their fifth home loss this season.

Kobe Bryant again had a game high 34 points but shot only 12-27. Howard had 21 plus 15 rebounds, but his 9-21 from the charity stripe (including two consecutive misses that could trim Orlando’s lead to 4 points with about three minutes left in the game), destroyed his good presence throughout the game. On contrary, the Orlando Magic got some nice performances from its units and as a team also. Aaron Afflalo led the way with 30 points in 4-8 shooting from beyond the arc. Glen Big Baby Davis finished the game with 21 grabbing 12 rebounds, quite a nice performance for him bearing in mind he faced two of the best big men in the league. The team had 5 players in double figures, including a 19-point and 13-assist performance from point guard Jameer Nelson.

“It means a lot to me. We can all say it was just a basketball game, but we know. …”he stated after the game.
The Lakers still wait the return of Steve Nash, who has remained sidelined since 31st of October. The latest update regarding his return, estimates that he will come back in a couple of weeks, almost before Christmas. However, the misfortunes seem to be endless for LA, who will most probably have to wait two more weeks to see backup point guard Steve Blake to return to the game. He is scheduled to undergo another surgery. Until then, the team has to rely on the young Darius Morris. Also, Pau Gasol will be on the spectator seats on Tuesday’s game against the Rockets due to a tendinitis in both knees.

Let’s hope the Lakers do find a way to break this slump and improve the mentality and the momentum within the team. They really need a win or two to get back on track and apart from the better performances of their star players; they also impatiently wait the return of Nash.

Next stop for the Lakers, Tuesday at the Houston Rockets and for the Magic, Wednesday at Utah against the Jazz.



On a night raining 3 pointers, Lakers dominate Denver Nuggets 122-103

December 1st, 2012

You know that when you see Dwight Howard shoot a 3, then it possibly is All – Star Weekend. But when you see him actually hit a 3, then something is happening. Last night and with only 10 seconds left to the game, Howard caught the ball at the corner and with a cool sharpshooter style got his 2nd career 3 pointer to go. Of course the well expected return of Steve Nash didn’t occur last night at the Staples Center. However the Lakers kept rolling, hitting a tremendous 17-33 from downtown and thus the Lakers topping the Nuggets to improve their record to 8-8 and put an end to the critics’ mouths.

LA never really put the victory in jeopardy but instead finished the first half with a 14 point lead. The young and energetic Nuggets tried to comeback at the third quarter and trimmed the lead to just 7 with a basket from Kenneth Faried, but at the end broke down to their opponents’ great performance. The bench finally stepped up and after a 5 game point at the loss against Indiana they found their rhythm scoring 61. Antawn Jamison finished with 33, season high for him hitting 5-10 from beyond the arc. Jodie Meeks had also a season high 21 points, tying his career high 7 made from 3 point range in 8 attempts. “Give me some minutes and I can make things happen” ,said Jamison after the game. Lakers’ coach Mike D’Antoni stated “They can spread the floor, they’re smart. … They’re not so bad defensively because you have Dwight in the back.”
Surprisingly Kobe Bryant didn’t have a great game, only 5-15 from the field and finished with 14 points, but after all he didn’t have to. Howard had a monster night with 28 points and 20 rebounds. As for the Nuggets they didn’t get a great game from anyone rather than Gallinari who finished with 19 points. Iguadala had 14 and had a highlight miss at the break when he slammed the basketball out. Denver was outrebounded 38-46 but not only that. The team’s bigs seemed they couldn’t handle the enormous force of Howard in the paint.

Pau Gasol had another low night, scoring just 6 points and grabbing 7 rebounds. It was Jamison who substituted him that showed up mostly in this game. The Lakers adopted a great fast paced rhythm from newly hired coach Mike D’Antoni that really helped them and it quite seems to match to this team. Also, with the teams’ role players hitting well from beyond the line, they can spread the floor and leave more space for Howard to do the job he knows well insight.

Next up for the Lakers Sunday vs Orlando Magic and for the Nuggets Monday vs Toronto, who just acquired ex-Celtic Michael Pietrus.
