    We really need to break out the hack a Howard til he proves he can make some. Have never loved the strategy, but wins >>>>>> all else.

    Orlando just used it to open a huge lead and take the game.

    Worst outcome for the Good Guys was the embarrassment of the team with HoHo losing to the team without HoHo. We'll get their A-game.

    Agreed. The Lakers PNR defense was atrocious tonight as well. We need to take advantage of that also.

    The Magic only used it when they had the lead though. Has it ever work when a team is down?

    Why does this need a new thread?

    Right now we should have some advantage in terms of going against the Lakers.

    New coach, and they're inconsistent as heck. They're a complete mess right now with trying to implement all the new plays and being short Nash.

    Still, they're very dangerous and can score a ton of points on any given night.

    Really hard to predict with any confidence the outcome...

    I seriously hope Sampson uses this strategy. Dwight was absolutely awful today on free throws. We should use it early on and ruin his confidence for the whole game.

    Howard Chen gathers the best posts on this forum then tweets it to Sampson for ingame strategies and stuff.

    If we hack a Howard, they'd probably hack an Asik.

    That'd be the most exciting thing to watch in the history of all things sports and television.

    I just wanna see Omer cross-over Howard. That, or a ChandlerBang throwdown on Kobe.

    Hack a Ho. Gotta admit, it got a good ring to it...

    I've actually been pretty impressed with Asik's FT shooting. Unsure of his percentage but he makes a decent amount of them, plus his form has increased x100 compared to when he was at Chicago...

    Asik is shooting 58% Ft this season. Up from 50% last season.

    So we win that battle. :grin:

    Asik is a better FT shooter than Howard though. I would dare them to hack Asik.
