New role for Sasha?

With backup guard Jordan Farmar playing only limited minutes during the Lakers’ victory Friday night over the Phoenix Suns, fellow Bench Mobber Sasha Vujacic got a good, long run. Farmar aggravated his broken left pinky in the first half and did not play in the second. So, Vujacic got to play extended minutes in his second game back from a sprained right shoulder that sidelined him for eight contests. Now, we all know the Machine has needed some serious repairs for most of this season. But is Vujacic now a Defensive Machine? He certainly made a pest of himself at times Friday. After all, he pressured Grant Hill into a traveling violation, which helped to trigger the Lakers’ electric 10-0 run to end the first half. It was an overlooked play at the time, but one that paid big dividends. Let’s see if there’s more to come on the defensive end for Vujacic.
