One thing you don’t have to worry about is Nelson losing a game for the Warriors. You don’t have to worry about his ego getting in t he way, or his desire to prove he’s right costing the Warriors a chance to win.
In the third quarter, the Warriors doubled Kobe almost every time. Yup, they swallowed their pride, conceded they can’t guard him, and double0-teamed him. Make Smush Parker beat you. Make Kwame Brown touch the ball and make a decision. No chance of going Toronto and leaving one man on him!
The Lakers had 20 points in the fourth quarter as the Warriors chased Bryant out of scoring opportunities. I would do the same thing all fourth quarter, because this is when Kobe shines. Don’t be surprised if Nellie agrees.
