P.A.G.E. 24 – The Lakers Fight For Elbow Room

The Los Angeles Lakers were defeated 108-90 in the opening night of the 2014-2015 NBA season.

James Harden scored a game high 32 points, while Kobe Bryant led his squad with 19 points in 29 minutes. Dwight Howard cleared the air before the game about not leaving for Houston because of Kobe Bryant, only to let a third-quarter elbow to his former teammates jaw spark up new intrigue in the rivalry.

Inside The Numbers

Houston only shot 42% from the field, the problem is the Lakers shot an abysmal 35%.

The Rockets outscored them 36 to 9 from the arc, and James Harden scored 15 points at the charity stripe.

Don’t think the Lakers are missing Nick Young? They only attempted a total of 10 three-point shots. Young is not bashful, and will surely increase the number of attempts from downtown upon his return.

Jordan Hill cannot go 2-7 as the Lakers starting center. Most of those misses were at point blank range, and although he had a double-digit rebounding game, his inefficiency on the offensive end didn’t keep Terrence Jones and Dwight Howard busy long enough on defense.

Ed Davis had an economical 11 points and six rebounds in 22 minutes of play. With rookie Julius Randle out, look for Davis to fulfill the first big man off the bench role.

The Lakers Have Mad Shoe Game

The Los Angeles Lakers proved they are out to win by any means necessary, as Ronnie Price launched a shoe at Andre Iguodala during the Lakers second pre-season loss to the Golden State Warriors.

‘Splash Brothers’ Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson were as good as advertised, while the suddenly short-handed Lakers are still a work in progress.

In this chronicle of P.A.G.E. 24, we discuss what’s wrong with the Lakers’ offense, trisect Kobe’s horrible shooting night, and how the sons of NBA players are creating their own legacies.

P.A.G.E. 24 – The Lakers Are A Blood Moon Rising

Kobe Bryant answered the doubters, Steve Nash got to the basket, and rookies Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson showed they are ready to make an immediate impact, as the Lakers defeated the Denver Nuggets 98-95 in their pre-season opener.

In this chronicle of P.A.G.E. 24, Kobe, Nash, and Coach Byron Scott reflect on the initial victory, and what surprise Laker is an early favorite to be the key X-Factor.

P.A.G.E. 24 – Kobe Bryant Works With Nature & Byron Scott Turns Back The Clock

The Los Angeles Lakers look to rebound from their worst season since relocating from Minneapolis.

Former Laker, and new Head Coach Byron Scott’s first priority will be to establish a new team identity, and institute a defensive philosophy.

An even greater challenge may be managing the minutes of 19-year veteran Kobe Bryant, who returns after only six games played in 2014.

In this chronicle of P.A.G.E. 24, we analyze the Lakers re-branding effort, the parallel between Byron Scott and Pat Riley, and Kobe’s strategy against that which is natural.
