Pau Gasol wants ball more in low post

“I would like to get a little more inside, myself,” Gasol told reporters after the game. “‘I always like to have different looks and be able to attack from different angles. The second half, I didn’t have one chance to attack from the post, so I was more of a facilitator.

“I got two jumpers, open, that I missed, and that was all the opportunities that I had.”

In this new offense (i.e. not the triangle), Andrew Bynum sits in the low post and Gasol further away from the basket and his job is to facilitate plays. All of which is fine for the soft-spoken Spaniard, but he wants a few more touches inside the paint.
