33-year old point guard Steve Blake has been giving the Lakers solid work behind Steve Nash lately. Since February 1st, Blake has played in 17 games (0 starts) in which he is averaging 19.5 minutes, 5.4 points, 2.2 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. He has now played in 26 games (5 starts) overall this year for the Lakers and he is averaging 20.9 minutes, 5.1 points, 2.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game. The Lakers need Blake to stay healthy and productive, so that they can watch Steve Nash’s workload the rest of the way in 2012-13.
