Pau Gasol’s words of wisdom to the Lakers

A sneak-peek at tomorrow’s story today …

Amazing what one lopsided victory can do for a team’s confidence, momentum and credibility, too. But then somebody had to go and act like the adult in the room after the Lakers’ 98-84 victory Wednesday over the San Antonio Spurs.

“Every time we have a good win, a solid win, we need to build on it,” power forward Pau Gasol cautioned. “We can’t be content or too satisfied with it. It just doesn’t work that way. Now we have Denver at home (tonight). …

“We can’t get too high up on any win, because if we lose the next game, what does it mean? What have we done? It’s pointless. We have to come out (tonight against the Nuggets) and play as hard as we did (Wednesday against the Spurs).”

Consistency has been a difficult concept for the Lakers to master during this lockout-compressed season. One night, it looks like they have it nailed and are clicking in all facets of the game. The next, it appears they’re playing with a square basketball.
