Well, you’re out on all the young Lakers. I wrote in January that when Randle plays 30 minutes, he puts up All-Star numbers. Last night, New Orleans destroyed Houston and Randle had 25–8–3 in 24 minutes.
We’ll have to see if New Orleans can play at this level — forget about the 3-point shooting, they scored 76 points in the paint and dominated the boards.
Or is it just a case of Houston being bad on defense as I think they will be?
Their offense will be also regress with the poor 3-point shooting of Melo and MCW.
