Jackson and the young Warriors were unable to slow down Kobe


Notes

  1. starting 5: Crawford / Belinelli / Jackson / Wright / Biedrins vs. Fisher / Bryant / Walton / Gasol / Bynum
  2. Keys: 1 - Emphasis on Kobe 2 - 2nd chance points 3 - Early offense
  3. Belinelli hits first shot Warriors take, long 2; guarding Walton, Jackson on Kobe
  4. Biedrins rebounding well
  5. Wright with nice post defense on Gasol - took the back down, Gasol tries turn around and Wright forces airball; earlier forced jump ball on Bynum shot
  6. Biedrins dropping more balls than usual lately
  7. Belinelli hits 3 straight; get him the ball
  8. Belinelli layup off fastbreak handled by Crawford; like chemistry between the two
  9. Belinelli playing more and more like Ginobili
  10. Biedrins with 8 rebounds w/ 2 min. left in 1st
  11. Wright getting to the line; playing aggressive
  12. Turiaf gets a big hand when he enters the game
  13. Crawford with ANOTHER 4 point play; most per minute by player ever??!?!?!
  14. Jackson sits with 2 fouls; Buike comes in - played well last time vs. Kobe in L.A.
  15. Randolph guarding Odom
  16. Bynum gets his 3rd dunk of the game
  17. Randolph making lots of silly mistakes; bad passes and bad foul
  18. GSW 27 LAL 34 end of 1st
  19. Wright and Turiaf start 2nd Q
  20. Lakers playing scrubs + Odom + Bynum
  21. Vujacic hitting his jumpers and 3's
  22. Kobe tells Bynum to "bust his ass"...pointing at Biedrins?
  23. Azubuike finishing well
  24. Biedrins fumbles Jackson assist again; part of problem could be difficult passes
  25. Warriors keep fighting back; Biedrins doing it all
  26. Belinelli back in w/ 4:45 left in 2nd Q; cuts lead to 9 with free throws
  27. Warriors hurt by all their turnovers; however, Biedrins and others looking good getting deflections and steals
  28. Belinelli guarding his idol to end the 2nd Q
  29. WRIGHT!! Wow, good handles taking the ball up court after rebounding, gets it to Jackson, gets it back for a dunk
  30. Belinelli hits 3 in Warriors last possesion of 2nd Q
  31. GSW 58 LAL 65 at the half
  32. leaders: Belinelli 14 pts, Biedrins 15 reb, Jackson 5 ast, Biedrins 3 stl, 3 to, Wright +5 +/-, Wright 2 bs
  33. starting lineups start the 2nd half
  34. Kobe knocks down first 2 shots; has 23 pts
  35. adventure when Jackson handles the ball
  36. love Wright's aggressiveness; getting to the line, playing Gasol well who is getting questionable calls
  37. Jackson with his 5th turnover halfway through 3rd Q
  38. Crawford heating up, leads Warriors with 19 pts; needs to do a better job defending Fisher
  39. Jackson trying to make the flashy passes and causing turnovers
  40. Lakers pulling away, 91 to 76 3:33 left in 3rd Q
  41. Warriors zone defense getting them back in the game
  42. GSW 85 LAL 102 end of 3rd
  43. Warriors sloppy possessions hurting them most
  44. Ariza playing teriffic defense all night; poor man's Randolph :)
  45. Kurz in: rattles in 1st shot, Warriors down 20
  46. C.J. hits 3, 2-2 3pt, 11 pts in 11 min so far
  47. points off turnovers 17 to 29 in favor of Lakers
  48. Randolph / Morrow / Watson / Nelson / Kurz with 7: 30 left in 4th
  49. Vujacic hitting 3-6 3pts, 17 pts
  50. Kurz hits 3, perfect 2-2 fg
  51. Morrow should take this time to get his confidence back, makes first shot
  52. Randolph with a tremendous drive and jam from the top of the arch; needs to take less jumps and more shots in the paint
  53. Radmanovic takes Randolph off the dribble...not good
  54. Nelson with block on Powell, coast to coast layup
  55. Randolph with another drive from 24 ft out then dunk
  56. GSW 113 LAL 130 final
  57. Kobe was just too good, Jackson reverted back to his turnover prone, low fg% self trying to do too much (fancy passes in traffic)
  58. so much for the improved defense...Lakers score their highest total this year; poor transition defense and closing out on perimeter shooters
  59. Biedrins with his 4th straight single digit scoring night (5,6,7, and 8)
  60. great to see that Nelson did not overplay Jackson during the blowout and let the young guys run
  61. Warriors have the 6th worst record at 9-23; 6.3% chance at the No. 1 Pick; keep tanking because this is probably the kind of beat-down the Warriors will get in the first round...keep an eye on DeMar DeRozan who is starting to heat up at USC

Wright played well on both ends and logged in 31 minutes
