Lakers Played Consistently Well for An Entire Game Today: Lakers 111, 76ers 98

On the TWCSportsNet post-game show, Coach Dave Miller stated, in reference to the most consistent contributor to The Lakers in recent weeks, Jodie Meeks: “For a shooter, the only bad shot is the one you didn’t take.” And “we the fans” of The Lakers are used to that saying coming true, from time to time, when Kobe Bryant just seems to chuck it up toward the basket endlessly – whether it’s going in or not. Today, just about everything that The Lakers tried seemed to work! (More)

Turnovers were down significantly, defense was measurably better. Final Score: Lakers 111, 76ers 98. (Recap)

Way to go, Lakers! It was a fun game to watch, a great morale booster for “we the fans” but from what I have heard from post-game interviews of the players, the team is feeling like this game is a turning point to getting point in the right direction, finally getting a firm understanding of D’Antoni’s intended pace & flow of how to best implement his gameplan…

Twitter was jumping with excitement among LakersNation during this Lakers game. Darius Soriano of ForumBlueandGold always has great stuff to contribute, somebody was wrongfully accusing a great sports writer, Eric Pincus of the L.A. Times, of anti-Lakers bias. That reminds me: I promised to read something he wrote during the 3rd Quarter (link). Reading it, finally, his point about asking the question “Where would The Lakers be…?” this year, if they were without the services of Dwight Howard, or hadn’t traded him for Andrew Bynum (who is still unavailable for The 76ers due to knee problems), is a good one. Without Nash, Blake, Gasol, Hill, this game may not have ended as a win if we hadn’t got some value somehow from the Center position. And, if we didn’t have Dwight Howard (my thoughts), we might still have Mike Brown! So, I’m okay with where we’re at as a team – growing pains, not much more than that. If we can persevere with patience for the return of Steve Nash & Pau Gasol, the dividends will be worth it!

Let’s go, Lakers! Let’s beat The Charlotte Bobcats! And then, back on the road we go.
