Default The Lakers defense and offense...

We all know the Lakers have the best offense in the league but what about their defense? They lead the league in 3pt pct def and fg def. When was the last time a team was number one in both defense and offense?

Well the Lakers aren't best offensively, defensively or even record-wise as of right now.

Rightnow there are 5 teams averaging more points per game than the Lakers and 9 teams who hold opponents to lower points per game averages than the Lakers. Hell, they're not even first in their division right now.

Hollinger calculates Lakers as #3 in defense:

Which is very impressive considering the fast pace in which the team plays.

Not sure if you're in the loop or not. 73.4% of ISH feel Hollinger is an idiot.

Default Re: The Lakers defense and offense...

have to remember that a lot of their opponents ppg come in garbage time with the regulars on the bench. Our bench is terrible defensively. The Lakers starters migt be the best defensive team in the league. A more telling stat for how good a defense is, is theother team's FG percentage and the Lakers I believe are top 3 in opponents FG pct. A they are significantly better since Pau has gotten back. They are really really solid inside and they have been rotating on perimeter d really really well lately. Their level of play right now is second to none both offensively and defensively.

Look at the Lakers schedule so far: http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/teams/schedule?team=lal

They have played awful teams for the most part and of the good teams they have actually played, they lost those games.

just remember that their schedule, so far has been as easy as can be, with most being home games.

january and march will be big tests for them and i imagine those stats will fall.

Yeah except when they beat Atlanta and Phoenix in blow outs.

Plus there was no Pau in those 3 losses.

Don't you worry at all, they'll more than make up for it in Jan and March.

Anyway, the defense is good, but it isn't the best or most consistent. Getting stops when you need them is all I ask for.

You are right, its pretty obvious the lakers only have a good record because they have faced garbage teams. Pure luck. Gasols injury doesn't mean anything either, and the fact that they are on a 5-0 wining streak after he came back doesn't mean anything either. And of course lets just ignore the fact that they blew out phoenix which holds the leagues best record. Lucky bastards...

Wait till they come to Atlanta. The Hawks will be in full effect. I am still waiting for Jamal Crawford to do something nasty to Kobe. Dude is sick.

Yeah jump on me but not the Laker fan who said the same thing. I never said they weren't good, but the teams they have played have inflated their stats.
