33-year old point guard Steve Blake is doing a solid job of replacing the injured Steve Nash so far in April. Blake has played in 7 games (all starts) for the Lakers so far in April and he is averaging 37.3 minutes, 11.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.1 steals per game. Blake is shooting 46.6% from the floor, 42.9% from three point range and 83.3% from the floor so far this month, which is pretty impressive. Blake has now played in 44 games (12 starts) overall this year for the Lakers and he is averaging 25.5 minutes, 6.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. The Lakers hope that Blake keeps up the good work moving forward.
