Preseason Game #3: Kings-Lakers Recap

I was at the Blogs With Balls 2.0 Conference in Las Vegas from Thursday to Saturday so I’ve been unable to post here. But I thought I’d run back, keeping tracking the lineups data and post it here. I won’t post my thoughts on the game because I didn’t listen to it or watch it. Yes, I know the game was in Las Vegas and I was in Las Vegas so you’d think I would have gone to it. However, I was knee-deep in the conference and decided not to pull myself away.

Here are just a couple things of note before I post the lineup data:

- Lineup data will have a nice face lift, which should be up by Wednesday night.

- Donté Greene didn’t play in this game due to Westphal’s decision to keep him out. While I think this kind of action is necessary to get through to a player, I also wonder if you should just bite the bullet and throw him out on the court when the games don’t matter, just so you can get an idea of how he fits in game situations. This is more of a rhetorical point of curiosity, not a criticism.

- In a game in which an average center is shredding your front line, I think Sean May should play more than four minutes. At least, throw Melvin Ely out there.

- Here are the game highlights:

And now, here is the lineup data:
