    Lakers 'went at each other a little bit' in morning meeting - latimes.com

    MEMPHIS -- The Lakers needed to talk. So they did. Loudly.

    They held a clear-the-air team meeting before Wednesday morning's shoot-around, with Kobe Bryant very directly asking Dwight Howard if he disliked playing with the long-time Lakers star.

    "Guys went at each other a little bit," said a person who witnessed the meeting.

    Coach Mike D'Antoni started it by saying he was tired of reading newspaper stories about players questioning his offense or wanting more touches. Bryant and Howard each fell under that category after the Lakers' lifeless 95-83 loss Monday in Chicago: Bryant said the offense needed to slow down while Howard expressed displeasure after taking only five shots.

    D'Antoni then told the team to stop worrying about offense and start playing better defense. The Lakers are fifth in scoring (102.6 points a game) but 26th in defense (101.4 points a game).

    This has become such an enjoyable story.

    Marc Stein said no team has won an NBA title without having an all-star that year. Well, since the game started in 1951.

    The logo isn't terrible, but man New Orleans Pelicans sure doesn't roll off the tongue easily. I can't imagine selling too much merchandise or being popular with the young crowd either.

    and yah, Charlotte going back to the Hornets has been the talk since this rumor came out. They said something like they wouldn't rule it out IIRC.

    The Celtics were probably going to be buyers at the deadline. Now that Rondo is out, are they sellers? Do they move KG? What about Pierce?

    Rondo must be one tough SOB. He finished the game after hurting his knee. Then came to the walk around for the game yesterday, expecting to play.

    I'm sad to see the Lakers playing better. It appears Kobe has finally figured out its not always the guy that scores that most that wins the game.

    KG to the Nets makes a lot of sense to me. I'm sure someone could find a way to use Pierce too. That could get interesting.

    Robert Parish is ‘restless’ and wants an NBA coaching job, but may be going about it the wrong way

    Good read. He better change his attitude or he will never get a job.

    Correlation Between NetRtg and Quarter | Hardwood Paroxysm

    What quarter deserves the most attention when trying to draw a link between NetRtg (points scored per 100 possessions minus points allowed per 100 possessions) and winning? What does it take to be number one?

    In each season, beginning with the 2007-2008 campaign, the most linked quarterly Rtg (offensive or defensive) was the first quarter. A poor DefRtg in the first 12 minutes resulted in the highest Loss Correlation in each of the past five seasons.

    Also, fans like to obsess over the fourth quarter scoring (How often have you heard, “Kobe is the most clutch player of all time” or early in his career “LeBron freezes up down the stretch and couldn’t finish a game is his life depended on it”?), but is that really all that important? The average Win Correlation for OffRtg (how directly tied the game result is to the number of points scored per 100 possessions) is lower in the fourth quarter than the average of quarters one through three in every single season since 2007. This stat indicates that the offensive efficiency prior to the fourth quarter is consistently more crucial to winning that what a team does in the final 12 minutes.
    Interesting stuff. A lot more at the link including a lot of charts.

    THe only thing I'd say is that the 4th quarter numbers are probably skewed due to blowouts. The losing team makes a run while the leading team doesn't care and has their scrubs in.

    It addresses that a bit, but I hear ya. Certainly not perfect by any means.

    I definitely like the overall theory though. I hate when people emphasize the 4th quarter like its some sort of end all be all.
