KOBE's forced iso plays/shootings(because his teammates not making shots and he is very angry about it) and hack-a-Howard tactics will doom the Lakers. D'Antoni's defense sucks also. I say Rockets will win this game.

i hope they lose and lose BIG

kobe is garbage and if they do lose, will be quick to blame his teammates...rather than taking responsibility (publicly)

NBA is definitely on the decline when we have discussions of his supposed HOF credentials and where he fits in with the GOATs...

total garbage

Harden has no lift on his shots and doesn't seem to really be attacking tonight--wonder if he is tired?

I realize Harden isn't playing with much talent but man is he getting a hard lesson in being the #1 guy on a team where all the focus is on stopping you.....After tonight, 3 out of 17 shooting 50% or better from the field. 3 out of 17 games with 2 turnovers or less. Fantasy friendly game, so I'm not complaining about his value and I saw this coming, but it's ugly to watch....

His FG% after the first two games has been 40% on huge volume. Pretty rough. I thought he'd be around 44-45%, hopefully he can get there by year's end.

Youd hope hes able to adjust to what hes seeing. Hes had some pretty poor games so far finishing around the basket which really hurts the old FG%.

is D'Antoni trying to run Kobe into the ground? what's with the line-ups?

Kobe's +4 on the game..the rest of the starters are 3-5 times higher than that..

They're saying D'Antoni doesn't want to kill Dwight's "Confidence", but he doesn't seem to care about doing that to Pau
