Several days after criticizing some of his teammates’ selfish play and Coach Mike D’Antoni’s small-ball approach, (Pau) Gasol was no longer angry.

“I think it was good because when you start going through the motions and start going downhill, if nothing happens, you’re just going to continue to go down that path,” Gasol said Sunday. “Sometimes you just need something to happen for you to wake up and kind of react and make things better.”

Bryant likes to shake things up sometimes too, no?

“Yes, he does,” Gasol said. “As a veteran, you feel like there’s times where you need to sometimes get out of that comfort zone and stir things up a little so guys react, and you get hopefully a positive result.”
