Dave McMenamin's post on LA Lakers | Latest updates on Sulia
How has Pau fared in the six games he's been back from a torn plantar fascia? After a rocky start ...
Pau Gasol is back to form.
His first two games back, Gasol averaged just 5.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 21.5 minutes per game on 27.7 percent shooting. The Lakers went 0-2.
But his last four have looked like shades of the guy who was a four-time All-Star. In those four games Gasol is averaging 13.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.5 assists in 34 minutes per game on 54.2 percent shooting. L.A. went 3-1.
"After six games being back, my timing, my legs, my conditioning is getting back and getting better," Gasol said Thursday. "So, hopefully it will continue to be that way. Everything is flowing nicely, so let's see if we keep it up."
