After the disappointing performance in Game One, the Los Angeles Lakers were back at practice yesterday making adjustments for Game 2 tonight. Following practice, Steve Nash and Steve Blake took a few moments to chat with the media regarding tonight's contest against the San Antonio Spurs.
For Nash, a balance needs to be found in what his mind thinks his body can do and what it is actually capable of, after his injuries this season. Come playoff time, sitting or resting on the bench is not an option, especially for players that have the end of their playing careers quickly approaching.
For Blake, his adjustment is centered on him playing effectively off the ball when on the floor with Nash, especially during the fourth quarter. Considering the loss of Kobe Bryant for the season, it is important for L.A. they find another player who can produce on the offensive end and it just might be Blake.
Will the Lakers' adjustments for Game 2 be enough to provide a different result from the one we saw in Game 1? We'll see tonight.
