Definitely wasn't one of Nash's best games; his defense was worse than usual. Nerves seemed to get to him tonight.
IMO, LA just wasn't playing the style that got them the 3 game WS (which was Kobe in the high post getting the hard screen from Howard). IDK, tonight they just seemed to be posting Kobe straight up most of the time. It took Howard almost completely out of the offense.
Didn't help that he reaggravated his shoulder injury missing most of the 4th.
The problems we saw in the 4th could be remedied by adding someone like Delonte West, a pesky defender who can also put up points. Thing is, you would solve that one problem and LIKELY add even bigger ones.
