Feeding the Beast: I tell LA what’s up

Kg gasol face shot

Our boy Rey Rey from TheNoLookPass.com had questions for me about tomorrow's game.  I had answers. Here's one of each.

All right. Lakers are 33-14 and winners of 10 of their last 13. I'm sure this is where you expected them to be. Give me a few keys on how the Celtics can stop the Lakers.

I don't think the formula has changed.  Keep Pau Gasol in check and let Kobe take all the jumpers he wants and you're well on your way to beating the Lakers.  Kobe's not the Kobe he used to be.  That's not to say he's not damn good, but he's starting to show that he's been in the league a decade and a half.  Happens to the best of 'em.

So if you let Kobe just gun, he'll knock the rest of the team out of sync and Lakers offense will suffer.  Get physical with Gasol and keep him off balance and now you've taken really the most versatile player on the team out of it too.  He's a hell of a passer, so if you let the offense flow through him unchecked, you're in for a long night. 

Head on over to TNLP for the whole shebang….
