We were there down the wire, nice to c that our second unit has come along way. Clips committed crucial mistakes down late and cost us. Not much to blame here besides vdn not double teaming bynum. Seriously vdn! The lakers had 93pts by the third!. Everything was falling for the bynum/kobe duo, it was their night i guess. I just hope this isn’t a glimpse of whats to come with vdn sailing this defenseless team. Lets regroup and start a new streak!. Come playoff time i want to see revenge! #itsNotTheEndOfTheWorld
Really. Twitter feeds. Is this what this site has devolved to. So lazy.
Read the stuff below on the ESPN Daily Dime. Makes me think that the Clippers lost by around 30 instead of losing by only 5 and being right there in the last few seconds of the game. Flynt does it again.
MVP: Andrew Bynum. As good as Kobe was down the stretch, Bynum was just as strong on offense throughout the night and was huge in terms of locking down Blake Griffin at times down the stretch. Thirty-six points and 8 boards gets it done.
X factor: Interior defense. Neither team defended all that well, but the Clippers really didn’t have a shot. Slow or non-existent rotations, DeAndre Jordan getting bullied by Bynum inside, all bad. This doesn’t even cover the bad iso D on Kobe.
That was … intense: The Lakers and Clippers battled all night long in one of the most physical shootouts you’ll ever see. There were amazing dunks, hard and cheap fouls, clutch contested shots and generally fun basketball.
