LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Chris Paul is a problem for just about any opponent's defense. As the New Orleans point guard proved in the Hornets' playoff opener, he's a particular conundrum for the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Lakers have spent the past two days scheming ways to slow down the four-time All-Star in Game 2 on Wednesday night after he torched them for 33 points and 14 assists in the Hornets' series-opening victory.

"It's always a challenge, but I feel like we can do a much better job," Kobe Bryant said Tuesday after a second straight lengthy practice day for the Lakers.

After two days of evaluation, the Lakers confirm their worst fears about Paul's abilities were realized in Game 1. The Lakers are not particularly well-equipped to counter what Paul does well, and Bryant said they'll need more than one player paying attention to Paul on every play just to slow him.

"One of our biggest problems was there was a lack of communication defensively," said Lamar Odom, who managed just one rebound in Game 1. "We've got to try to trap this kid as much as possible, make it as tough on him as we can."

So why is Paul such a nightmare for the Lakers? It's not just because they obviously lack a strong defender at point guard: Derek Fisher is years past his speediest form, while backup Steve Blake just returned to practice Monday after a week off the court with a bout of chicken pox.

It's because the Lakers' greatest physical asset is their size, and Paul's poised speed negates much of that. Almost nobody in the NBA can keep up with Paul one-on-one, forcing the Lakers to commit more of their defensive resources to Paul.

"We can't let him have a lot of space to dictate and decide what he wants to do," said center Andrew Bynum, who blocked two shots in Game 1.

Los Angeles' pick-and-roll defense has been excellent at times during the season, but coach Phil Jackson said Paul's basketball sense makes the Hornets' favorite play particularly tough to contain. No matter how the Lakers approach it, Paul can find a way to exploit it, either with a quick drive or a savvy pass.

"He attacks in the pick-and-roll," New Orleans reserve Willie Green said. "He can split it, he can shoot the jumper, so he can create a lot of problems. I'm sure the Lakers are going to do a good job of adjusting, making him kick the ball out and have other guys beat them, so we've just got to be prepared for their adjustments and try to continue to attack."

Paul and Hornets coach Monty Williams appeared to work together well in Game 1, with Williams noting several instances in which Paul had already called out the play Williams was preparing to send in to his players.

Near the close of an impressive rookie coaching season, Williams is still learning the best ways to help Paul. Sometimes the coach will call plays, but he'll also allow Paul to run the show.

"It's been tough on him because I, at times, have messed it up trying to call too many sets," Williams said. "I think a lot of times it happened because when you have someone like (injured scoring leader) David West on the floor, you want to take advantage of both.

"(Now) I'm just watching him. I watch and I watch," Williams added. "He'll look at me and we'll have something, but I have to help him out as best I can and try to put him in positions where teams can't take him out, which is hard. But having him on the floor has made me look better as a coach than I should, that's for sure."

Paul is coming off lowest-scoring season of his career, with fans questioning his commitment to New Orleans after his infamous wedding toast to a future partnership with Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire in New York. Paul said he "tried to have a different intensity" when the playoffs began, mostly to show his less-experienced teammates how it's done.

Did he ever.

Between his baskets and assists, Paul was directly responsible for nearly 58 percent of the Hornets' points in Game 1. He relentlessly broke down the Lakers off the dribble, usually after a pick-and-roll.

Paul did most of his ball distribution in the first half with 10 assists while the Hornets made nearly 60 percent of their shots, but he took over as a scorer down the stretch with 17 points in the fourth quarter. Paul also had seven rebounds and four steals with just two turnovers.

Paul is just the fourth player in the past 20 seasons to record at least 33 points and 14 assists in a playoff game. Although Williams' game plan baffled the Lakers, he knew he couldn't take credit for all of Paul's brilliance.

"He did some things that I didn't coach," Williams said. "I didn't show him how to do it, for sure. He's an exceptional player, and he's hard to guard. It's going to be paramount for the rest of our team to help him out, because they're not going to allow him easy looks. I don't think they did (in Game 1). I thought Chris hit tough shots. He's paid to make tough shots. People forget that, and he does it well most nights."

Game notes
Hornets C Aaron Gray, who scored a season-high 12 points in Game 1, still doesn't know whether he'll be able to play with his sprained right ankle. "It's hard here in practice just watching the guys go and having to kind of be on the sideline," Gray said Tuesday. "That's definitely difficult, so I couldn't even imagine what it would be like (to sit out) during the game. Hopefully we're not at that point."

Double Chris Paul off pick-and-rolls and you should be okay. Plus, get someone to light a fire under Pau Gasol. Do these two things, and you should win this series in 6 games max imo. The most important thing is to get Gasol to play with an edge.

Chris Paul is just insane. The Lakers don't have the guards to put in front of him to stop him. He put up a ridiculous PER of 46 and shot lights out. I think limiting him from getting others involved is key.

Chris Paul can do what he wants and the Lakers will still win this series. It's Pau Gasol that hurt the Lakers in game 1, playing like a wuss. 8 pts. 6 reb. When he starts playing well, the Lakers will be fine.

Nice try. This has been the case with opposing team PG's for years. If the Lakers bigs do what they're supposed to do, the Lakers should win.

Besides, we all know CP3 will be a Laker or a Knick before it's all said and done. This is his audition tape. :D

Doesn't matter who we play in round 2. I like our chances. As for the Lakers people act like because they are the Lakers they will just show up and win. That's not how this works, and Paul exposed that the other night. That arrogant nonchalant attitude is what will get LA blown out again. Paul goes for 40 pts and 20 assists tonight as they go up 2-0 heading back to New Orleans...

Dont get all hyped bcuz your mavs are up 2 with the blazers. lets not forget what we did to ur team in the season buddy. and lets not forget what your team is known for in the playoffs, i suggest u relax until your team does something worthy.

also, pg's has been a problem for us forever now and we are still back to back champs. so what paul did last game, he''l prolly continue to do, but lets face it, we lost bcuz pau had a bad game, and our execution period.

Alosu your showing your hate for the lakers by saying paul will get 40 and 20 :facepalm:

AND TRUST ME, IT DOES MATTER WHO YALL PLAY IN THE SECOND ROUND, BCUZ IF YALL PLAY THE HORNETS, YOU'LL WIN, IF U PLAY US, YOU'LL LOSE, BIG DIFFERENCE

Thats the difference... You guys played hard in the regular season. Its now playoffs and you're down 0-1 to the lowly Hornets. The problem with you and other psd fans alike is you talk about PAST accomplishments. Yea the Mavs haven't had a good playoff track record. But the difference is that has nothing to do with now. Which is why we're out dominating the Blazers whom everyone picked to beat us, and the Lakers are losing to the Hornets. Past accomplishments mean nothing, and you and Lakers fans should know that most of all. Because you were champs didn't stop Chris Paul from going out and having a career night. And you won't stop him the rest of this series.... I've said it before and I'll say it again. Hornets in 6

There are quite a bit of sig worthy bits people can take from this post. Hornets in 6? On what planet? If the Lakers get what they're supposed to get Gasol and Chris Paul still plays the way he did, then the Lakers win this series in 6, maybe even 5. Last game was a minor setback. I'm sure of it.

And the problem with you is you think you can tell the future and put your choke of a team and star player in the finals. Why? because you won 2 little 1st round playoff games. All Dallas has done so far is hold homecourt that is it. I'm glad you are so excited about it;)

Dallas is a good team, no doubt and if both teams meet in the second round, I will love to see Kobe and co. shatter your little heart into pieces. I'm not very worried about what you say cause chances are we won't even see you post anymore like some of the Mav fans of the past.

You're sure of it why? Because they won the last 2 championships? Tell me what that has to do with this season? Tell me who stops CP3 from putting up 33 and 15 assists every night of the series? Tell me why Gasol will produce more than he did in game 1? Lakers fans have this sense of entitlement because they've had prior playoff success and thats fine. But that has nothing to do with this series or any other series in the playoffs. The Hornets are going to show up to win every night... You watch

And your problem is you overreact to the moment and think 1 game means everything. I have seen you predict series losses for the Lakers, Spurs, Magic, and Bulls after game 1 of each series. The playoffs are long and i think it is very likely that your team will be going home before any of those 4 teams. The Mavs are good and i actually enjoy watching them but they've got a long road ahead of them and i doubt they can get past the Lakers. I have a feeling you won't be talking as much **** in a couple weeks.

The Mavs are good and i actually enjoy watching them but they've got a long road ahead of them and i doubt they can get past the Lakers. I have a feeling you won't be talking as much **** in a couple weeks.


And of the 4 teams you mentioned 3 of them already have losses to inferior teams. Everyone knows the Bulls will beat the Pacers, but dude why aren't they winning by 20+. That team is terrible but that's another story for another day. Of the 4 teams you named the Spurs and Magic are definately going home in the first round. The Lakers have a real chance of going home early, and the Bulls will survive round 1 but get pummeled in round 2. Any team playing close games with the Pacers this time of year is clearly NOT a title contender. I think CP3 is a once in a generation type player and I struggle figuring out how the Lakers will be able to stop him. He put up 33 and 14 in the first game and I think he can improve on that performance. It by no means was perfect. Paul can put up 40-20, and the Hornets can win this series. I get a hunch the Hornets can pull it off.

Doesn't matter who we play in round 2. I like our chances. As for the Lakers people act like because they are the Lakers they will just show up and win. That's not how this works, and Paul exposed that the other night. That arrogant nonchalant attitude is what will get LA blown out again. Paul goes for 40 pts and 20 assists tonight as they go up 2-0 heading back to New Orleans...

You don't have to worry about me at all. Its Chris Paul and the NO Hornets that you should be worried about. CP3 made you all look foolish in gm 1, and who's gonna stop him? Fisher..... Don't make me laugh

I believe Dallas is the only team to lose against a number 7 and 8 seed.

Thats fine man. My prediction is simply my opinion. Just like you're opinion was that the Mavs would get swept. YOU WERE WRONG. I think the Hornets will beat LA in 6. Not because they are the better team, but because they're not living off of past accomplishments. LA thinks because they're LA the other team will just lay down and die. It doesn't work that way and the Hornets proved that in gm 1. I'm not egging anyone on I'm simply giving my opinion. The Hornets want it more than LA. I can only go based on what I see, and that's what I saw gm 1. People talk about how good the Bulls are, all I SEE is them struggling with a 37 win Pacer team. People told me the Spurs were a great team, yet all I SEE is them getting outclassed by a Memphis team that doesn't even have its best player. I don't go based off of PAST accomplishments, and I don't go based on what the media and fans tell me on PSD. I go based on what I SEE.

Thats the problem. History has nothing to do with this game or any game in this series or playoffs for that matter. Again if past accomplishments were everything LA would've beat NO by 20 game 1. That didn't happen because the Hornets didn't care that you were the Lakers. They went out played their game and layed the smack down.

Uh its the title given. Example. Prior to the first championship win against Orlando, Kobe had the title that he could now win a championship without Shaq. He carried on that title until he finally won it on his own in the sense as the number one guy. Now you never hear people talking how Kobe can't win it without shaq. Same thing here. Dallas has been choking on something big the past couple of years and "until" they prove it that they can "win," they will still be titled as choke artists. Once they go to the finals at least or win a championship you will finally hear the chatter go away.

Well, we will just agree to disagree. But you're sadly mistaken if you think the Lakers will win anything present or future based on what they did in the past. The Lakers were the best team in 09 and 10 and theres no question about that. In 2010-11 they look shaky. From having multiple losing streaks to losing to just flat out BAD teams. To coming out in the playoffs and just stinking up the joint. Hornets look desperate. They want it. LA doesn't because they feel entitled...

How do I know? Because its the freakin Pacers. They have no front line, no all star, poor coaching, the list is a mile long. They didn't only win 37 games for a reason. Same thing applies to the Grizz. And Z-bo is one of my favorite players. But guys like Tony Allen, and Mike Conley wouldn't be having success against us. We play Defense, SA doesn't get my drift? And why are my predictions ridiculous? Because they don't agree with the media and PSD fans.... One prominent NBA writer predicted the Blazers would sweep the Mavs. 75% of the analysts predicted the Blazers would beat us. I've seen no signs that in this series. We're pretty much doing whatever we want in this series, while Porland can't get out of the 80's....

Ok thats fair but just because we've won 50 games for all those years doesn't mean we should have won the title. The Mavs haven't had an NBA caliber C in history unti...THIS SEASON. The Mavs haven't played an ounce of Defense until...... THIS SEASON. I think yours and most other PSD fans perception of the mavs is skewed. The Mavs teams of the last 11 years except '06 were built for regular season success not playoff success. You cannot win a title without a C and this is the first year we've ever had one... Even in '06 the Mavs weren't the best team and clearly played over there heads to even reach the finals. Its kinda hard to compete against Shaq when the best counter you got is Dampier and Diop...
