    Exactly. It's like the Lakers lose all energy and inspiration once the hack a Howard starts. Two games in a row now. Once the hack a Howard strategy starts, they need to play harder, not relax.

    Now what?
    Weaker then pau? Um.. NO.
    And Jamison shot well and had 9 rebounds.
    The problem was D'antoni left dwight out
    to get hacked when we were up by 7.

    Rockets shot 37% tonight. Ummm that's pretty good defense to me they shot the ball over 100 times. The rebounding was a problem not the defense itself.

    A) He's a shooting guard, doing what shooting guards do, and doing it well. 39 pts on 14/31 from the field, with 6 rbs and 2 stl is a pretty good game.

    B) He no longer has a wingman who can knock down free throws, so passing the ball in crunch time puts his team at a disadvantage. Heck, he wasn't even getting a chance to make that choice, since the other team was VOLUNTEERING to foul.

    Well, hack-a-dwight seemed to have an effect on the team's defense in the final 6 minutes, because they couldn't get many stops, and in fact there were several outright breakdowns.

    He gets credit for this???? He fired the coach everyone on this green Earth EXCEPT HIM knew shouldn't have been hired in the first place, and whom he stuck with until this season started, instead of recognizing the mistake during the off-season. I wouldn't even assume that he made the decision to fire him.

    Yep, without Kobe the team would be worse. I like all the Laker players by the way. You seem to think this is some kind of player vs player thing. Me, I just want to see Kobe play his natural role off the ball and not trying to create offense. Its not his strength. When I see a problem in the game I point it out.

    I still think Kobe should take the most shots and take the big shots...he just should not be the one creating offense most of the time. Offense should go start with Howard/Gasol/Nash.

    Their 2nd best rebounder was sitting on the bench.

    Or, if you prefer, their 3rd best rebounder was sitting on the bench. Their 2nd-best rebounder played 14 minutes.

    A word to the wise: Phil Jackson understood this. Championships are won in the paint. 3-point shooting should be a complement to that, and a complement only. 1-in-4-out seldom wins championships. (Only Hakeem's Rockets).

    I know fans like 3-point shooting, and it makes sense. The ABA guys wanted it to be basketball's version of a homerun, and chick's dig the long ball. However, "stretch 4s" like Jamison and Anderson are never going to be as valuable to a championship team as players like Gasol and Hill.

    I'm pro-D'Antoni, but I'm disappointed in his inability to adapt his strategy to his personnel. I'm not going to write him off, though.
