The hapless LA Lakers (21-10) continue to spiral out of control after being routed by the San Antonio Spurs 97-82 last night.
Fingers immediately began pointing at conceited Lakers star guard Kobe Bryant who fired up 27 desperation shots at the basket. Center Pau Gasol, who only made nine field goal attempts during the game, couldn’t hold his tongue any longer.
“We didn’t play a smart game, put it that way,” Gasol said. ” … We have to recognize what’s going on and understand what our strengths are against certain opponents, and try to exploit them.”
“It can’t be an individual effort from nobody,” Gasol added. “It has to be altogether on a string, like a family.” Source
