    No doubt hes playing great but it still should be the biggest mismatch on the floor. I get the Lakers want that high/low action with Gasol and Bynum but it just makes no sense to me why you don't get the ball to Gasol in the post more often. Its not like Faried can deny him position or challenge his shot in any way.

    In any case I hope they pull out the win in LA. Denver/OKC would be a great series.

    Denver doesn't have anyone of the caliber of a Kobe, Bynum or Gasol. What they have decided to do is focus a lot of attention on Drew and Pau while doing their best to not let Kobe take over the game. They have been double and triple teaming the LA bigs which, IMO, has been the cause of their lack of production in a lot of the games. One thing though, Faried may not have the size of Gasol but he is a very pesky player. Combine that with the help he gets when LA attempts isolate on him down low and you get some frustrated big men. It kind of showed in one of the games when Bynum got the tech for shoving Kenneth. If LA is to get out of this series, they have got to figure out how to deal with the attention that Denver is putting on their front court....

    EDIT: I do hope that Denver wins the series but I am not looking forward to being matched up against OKC at all for reasons that I have mentioned previously. They are like looking in a mirror for Denver but with much better shooters....

    Its not like they have to focus all that much on Gasol.....hes rarely involved in the offense. Most of the time with the starting unit hes reduced to being a set shooter. Some blogger counted it out in game 5 where they initially ran the offense through him 4 times the entire game.....none of those times in the low block. Just seems like a horrible under utilization to me.

    Good point! He is still getting doubled & tripled when he gets his touches though. That's especially true if he is on the court when Bynum sits. He has got to show that he can over come the added attention. They shouldn't stop going to him him IMO. When he gets his chances he has to make the most of them. Thus far he hasn't. I for one, am glad that he hasn't!
