They applied full court pressure at lest 70% of time
thereby pulling the big Papa away from the basket.
They tried hard to deny the drama queen.
They got out to a great start by forcing the tempo.

It's not a big secret that the Lakers ball handlers have trouble dealing with full court pressure. Philly was the first team to make it blatently obvious back in the 2001 finals. Problem is it's costs the pressing team alot of energy and few teams are quick enough to do an adequet job. Look for the Lakers to make adjustments and take the next 3.
I posted the "ball pressure" strategy a while back, maybe Flip is a poster on this board. i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif
We will see. Lets also remember three guys scored all their points kg and Hudson combined for 74 points and wally had 18 points.
