1. Stop setting up JaVale McGee in the block. He is 0-4. His offensive impact should be limited to the offensive glass, dives on the pick and roll and the fast break.
2. Give Danilo Gallinari a few screens.
3. More Ty Lawson. The speedy point guard is by far Denver’s most effective scorer against L.A., and while Lawson has 11, he’s not taking control on enough of the team’s possessions. Until L.A. shows an ability to stop him with any amount of focus, Lawson needs to be featured and to attack.
4. Settle for a few more jumpers. Andre Miller is 0-6 because he keeps going to the rack, where L.A.’s length with Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum and Jordan Hill is causing problems.
5. Keep sending Jack Nicholson’s evil twin to the opposite side of the court.
It’s bound to unsettle everyone in the building. Just the opening Denver needs.
BONUS: Release flies in the vicinity of Pau. He will likely catch one in his mouth and get sick.
