Well, bo, as Sir Charles famously put it, "I am not a role model."  I imagine Kobe feels pretty much the same way.  Seems Jackson has learned to work with Kobe.  As for the Lakers, that was quite a steal getting Pau Gasol from Memphis.

Poor Rotation Hurts Lakers
By Dr. Jack Ramsay
ESPN Radio

BOSTON -- NBA games can change at the drop of a hat ... or if group substitutions don't work out. The Lakers frequently go to their bench at the start of the second quarter and have gotten good results from the change in lineup. But I have never seen them use five reserves at the same time. Coach Phil Jackson usually keeps one of his starters, either Kobe Bryant or Lamar Odom, in the mix.

At the beginning of the second quarter of Game 2, with his team up 22-20, Jackson started the second quarter with five reserves: Jordan Farmar, Sasha Vujacic, Ronny Turiaf, Luke Walton and Trevor Ariza. Over the next two minutes and 20 seconds the Celtics had run off 10 straight points to give them an eight point lead that they never relinquished.

The Lakers also started game 2 by driving to the Basket while the Celts were taking jump shots.When Powe came in it changed what the Celts were doing on offense to that point.

Del Negro could be a younger cheaper D'antoni clone for the Bulls.

I don't get what Kerr is doing, transforming PHX into a Defensive team.

IND-MIN was fun
Seemed more like a Home game for INDy, as they kept ripping 12 point leads only to have MIN tie it up, then PAcers would stretch another lead.

Really good ball movement by INDy.  Sometimes there passes were almost too forceful.  A real commitment to passing.  I always liked McMillan as a coach.

Collison ended up with 16 Assists.
IND shot 66.7% FG for the game.
Oladipo still a sloppy player, trying always to make the spectacular play.
Jamal chumped him a bunch.
Craw 18 & 9 in 30 mins.  Played a terrific game until mid 4Q on where he looked winded and missed a few shots and had a fast break turnover, essentially dribbling onto a defender.  No reason he should be out there 30 mins at his age,
Jimmy Butler was out.

Teague had a poor game.  Didn't have it.
TJ Leaf looked good.
Knows what he's doing on O.
Popped a 3. A little later posted up Craw and made a strong move before the double team arrived.
Active on D, even if got out of position once or twice

Sabonis had a Big Game.  15 / 11/ 5

Bjelica for MIN has a nice shot and fought for O-Boards.
Hard to believe he only had one rebound.
He kept about 4 alive, but usually surrounded by 3 or 4 Pacers.

NBA TRiviaL:

Only 2 players have scored more than 10K points in the NBA off the bench
(ie not counting any starts they've made).


Who they be?

How about Jamal Crawford and Vinnie Johnson?

Hadn't thought of Crawford, Vinnnie sounds good.

who knew they got a all-time bench list?

My WAG short list is Celts 6th men (Havlicek McHale-they both probably started too much)  Mano Ginobli, Michael Cooper, Downtown Town Freddie Brown (his name should get him some credit) and Robert Horry (just because he's a vulture) 

I don't have a clue

Crawford is one.

I picked the info up during a Minny telecast (where Craw now scores).

The Microwave sounds like a good guess, but alas, tis not he.

The other one is tougher to guess.
A retired player -- a scorer of course --who still has some relevance to today's game.
