Youth In Revolt: Father Time Proves To Be Toughest Opponent, But He Hasn’t Won Yet
Turiaf and Gasol faced each other for the first time when Ronny left the Lakers to join the Golden State Warriors.

Indeed, the Clippers and the Thunder were able to exploit the Lakers vulnerabilities against younger, quicker, more athletic teams.   Time and time again, opposing point guards, too quick for our aged heroes, penetrated deep into the teeth of the defense. Time and time again, they dropped floaters over the Lakers outstretched arms or they were able to explode all the way to the front of the rim for lay-ups.

Time and time again younger, tougher, hungrier big men outfought and outmuscled the Lakers for rebounds, put-backs, and slashing, back-board rattling, dunks.  It got so nasty over this two game stretch that referees decided to toss not one, not two, but four players in the final testy minutes against the Clippers on Sunday. All of which ignited thanks to the effort, hustle and heart displayed by the one young Clipper who would not let up until the horn sounded.
