double digits but committed a ton of turnovers and took a lot of shots
to get there. I estimated a total of about +6 net points from Karl
that game, definitely a good game.
So far, the Lakers are doing what I expected, spreading the ball
pretty evenly, making the offense quite efficient (Chp 19). Shaq is,
as pointed out, a little less efficient than expected. The defense is
mediocre, about as expected when you add old guys with very overrated
defensive skills. The question I had was whether they'd coast too
much going into the playoffs. Can't say I have an answer on that one.
