Steve Nash starts slow for Lakers
RotoWorld reports: Lakers: Steve Nash had just seven points, two rebounds and four assists on 3-of-9 shooting in the Lakers' opening loss at home to the Mavericks on Tuesday. Yuck. Nash spent most of the night playing off the ball and it would appear that Mike Brown's decision to run a half-court offense doesn't take advantage of the tools he has to work with. Maybe he'll get it worked out soon, but Nash could be in for a long year if the offense doesn't change. Keep in mind this was just Game 1 of a long season, and odds are that Nash starts looking more like himself sooner than later, regardless of what Brown is doing. This was Nash's first game with less than 10 points and five assists when he played more than 20 minutes, according to Shaquille O'Neal on the post game show.
