Coach Nick goes over 3 games from over the weekend – Lakers vs. Mavericks – as the Lakers take their unceremonious exit from the playoffs, OKC vs. Memphis, giving us one for the ages down the stretch, and Bulls vs. Hawks – with Rose shooting them in and out of the series.

  • All season long Westbrook has been doing a fair job breaking down defenses. Now that the playoffs are here, he’s seeing much tighter defensive sets. He can’t penetrate at will, he gets horribly frustrated, and he jacks up bad shot after bad shot There have been several games where I’ve been screaming “send him off to the D League” at my TV screen. I think your suggestion of playing him at the two has real merit. He clearly can score, but his ball handling and decision making are very poor at this point.
