Default Is D'antoni an idiot?

Only an idiot would insist on keeping a 7 man rotation on 2 back to back games.

Seriously?

The other guys can't give you a 5-10 minute breather?

I know excuses are not allowed, but the Lakers are not built to withstand 2 back to back games on a 7 man rotation.

It's hard enough to win back to back games and to try to do it with a 7 man rotation is damn near impossible plus the Lakers have been terrible in back to backs this year... I don't think they won one yet

Agree to an extent. The defense and rebounding effort was there, and the Lakers got quality shots- they just weren't falling. It's basketball.

Also, noticed the suns weren't fouling Dwight. They played him straight up and let him beat himself with his goofy ass post shots.

That's what ruined the Suns come playoff time years ago. Horrible coach.

No they have not. With Kobe, with a full roster without a full roster it hasn't made a difference.

D'Antoni has tried resting them on the first night and they lose that game. They've tried every combination big minutes or rest and nothing has worked. So he tried something different, get the win in the first night with a short rotation and see if the same unit can get the win the next game it didn't work either.

It's not like the Lakers have talent that didn't get off the bench, the guys that sat sat for a reason.
