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.
