It's not all about Howard. Even if he made all his FT (I think he missed about 12 in total), Lakers would've probably lost still.
The biggest problem was letting ORL score 40 points the 4th quarter. This is due to bad defense. We would need to blame everyone in the team for this, including Pringles and the front office for hiring him.
Pringles had weird rotations, and does not understand adjustments. I wouldn't say he's Mike Brown level yet, but somewhat close.
Hack-a-Dwight is not a secret. Everyone is using it against Lakers and yet Pringles didn't come up with ANY plan to counter it. Instead, he's just planning to wait for Nash to come back and HOPE for all the problems to be gone. I highly doubt Nash will improve the team's defense or Howard's FT%.
