That being said, the Lakers don't need a PG on offense. They can just give Kobe the ball, clear that side of the floor, and play a 2-man game with Pau or Bynum. In that case I think the Cavs should double Kobe and leave the Lakers PG alone.Defense is another story. You would think that KI and Sessions take it to the rim on Fisher and their 3rd string PG all night, but with two 7-footers in the paint it's going to be tough to finish, even if they dish it off. Bad defensive matchups tonight. AV on Bynum and his 280 pounds. Jamo giving up 3 inches and 30-40 pounds to Gasol. Casspi on Kobe??? OMG.

Prosecutor wrote:You could see the Cavs' lack of a go-to player surface in the 4th quarter when they pulled to within 3 points after being down 19. The next four possessions resulted in two passes thrown away, a moving pick, and a 24-second violation. Four possessions without a shot. They got right there and then imploded. The Lakers never had to worry about that because they could always go to Kobe when they needed to re-establish control of the game. The Cavs don't have anybody like that, although KI might be able to do it eventually.
