so now it's time to get ready for the playoffs... rest the players that will carry the load in the playoffs, play them 20 minutes a game or so, work on the tightened rotations we'll see then let the deep bench get some playing time incase somebody needs to be pressed into action....
home court for the finals is over, gone, time to regroup and think about the big picture
treat the last games like preseason... start off slow work on things and ramp up for the playoffs
I understood that, Last night I was just sooo upset with the lakers..
I mean I have realized that the last few games the lakers have been "cruising" through them and I can understand that they want to take it easy and be healthy and rested for the playoff run,
But my problem is, where do you draw the line from taking it easy and playing so poorly that it becomes a bad habbit?
And I was upset with our bench. Like 8 points last night, a bench that used to give us 40, is now giving us 8. And it was actually 11, because sasha hit a worthless 3 when it was already over. Jordan Farmer is making bonehead plays, it just hurts to watch at somepoints of the game. Too many turn overs and all that.
MAYBE I'm over reacting, because it was just one game, but it's just the way they have been playing lately, especially Kobe. Our bench? What happend to it?
Guys like Farmar,Sasha,Powell,Luke have to start bringing it. These guys are affected by the team(Team plays well, has momentum, they play well. If the team is struggling, then they sure as hell arent going to take us out of the funk)
Again, maybe I'm over-reacting atm. Maybe 2 days later I'll feel diffrently, things always seem diffrent in retrospect
