Y'know, the "they just made their 3s" argument bugs me. Yeah. They did make their threes. You know why? Because the Lakers were playing solid inside-out basketball, kicking it out to WIDE OPEN shooters on almost every possession.
Kinda like the Spurs were doing in February. Now, we've become a stopped-ball, iso team with god-awful possessions in which we force late clock jumpers or off-balance heaves.
If there's a lesson to be learned from the tape--it's from watching the side-to-side swing of the Lakers offense, and the drive/kick ball that we NEED to get back to doing like....last week.
