Kobe had a terrible game and the Lakers still win. I can definitely see the difference that Nash makes -- gives the Lakers another perimeter play-maker as well as shot-maker. Kobe was also very clutch in the 4th and OT... he had a REALLY rough game overall though. Last time I remember him shooting 40+ times he scored 81 points.

Being that D12 hardly got to play because of ridiculous foul calls (both ways), I'm pretty excited about what the Lakers can be with Nash back....

We got the Knicks Christmas day should be a good game now that we have everybody back,although Dwight still isn't 100%.

I gotta say... Nash makes us so much better at both ends. We are money in crunch time now. We have 2 of the most clutch players in the NBA in Kobe and Nash and they can create shots for themselves and others at any time.

The Old Man played his ass off tonight but it wsn't quite enough. Looks to be an interesting 51 games remaining in the Regular Season.

If the Lakers gave the same effort on defense throughout the game that they gave during the fourth quarter most of their games wouldn't be close. This team has to figure out how to play on both sides of the floor, and learn that good defense leads to easy transition offense....

Pau Gasol is freakin useless.

If it weren't for Kobe game would have been a 25+ point blowout.

Pau Gasol has regressed so much this season. I'm not sure what it is either. In the Olympics he was straight dominating the best the world had to offer (although he was always in the post for the most part) and now he doesn't even look like a player that deserves a single minute. I don't know if he is somehow gassed from the Olympic run and having to carry that team, if his injury is more serious than he is letting on, if he's somehow regressed from a dominant player to a scrub in just a matter of a few months (not likely), or he isn't being utilized correct by D'Antoni (and before someone comes on here and says Kobe is making Gasol worst -- just no... he doesn't control the offense). It could be a bit of everything. Personally I think that it is a little bit of everything, because he has absolutely zero lift right now, very little strength (not that he was ever really strong by NBA standards) and just always looks gassed. To top it all off he is NEVER in the low post and that is where he belongs. Until we figure something out we are just going to be hurt by Pau's EXTREMELY inconsistent offense, and very poor defense.
