Pound the ball into Pau and D12 and play inside/out.
Lakers still have that huge size advantage. Use it.
It isn't that easy. Dwight has been getting a lot of post-ups (not so much Pau) and he's been turning over the ball a lot. Add to the fact that he's not yet 100% and post ups have not been that effective for the Lakers.
They've looked their best since Mike Brown left and they've been running Kobe pick and rolls all game. The problem is that when Kobe is off the court, there is nobody to run it.
I bet Kobe can't wait until Nash comes back and he'll get a steady dose of playing on the weak side of that pick and roll. It will be a lot harder for teams to help off Kobe than it is Darius Morris, and when they do, he can go one-on-one.
