DeJuan Blair adjusts against Pau Gasol

Throughout the season, we'll often spend a lot of time talking about the adjustments made -- or not made, in some instances -- by the Lakers against various teams. Most recently, True Hoop's Kevin Arnovitz examined how the purple and gold collapsed down the fourth quarter stretch of Sunday's 100-81, earthquake-inducing loss to the San Antonio Spurs.

What we don't often get to see, however, is a specific look at the enemy adjusting to the Lakers. Thanks to our buds at 48 Minutes of Hell, a gander is possible. Take a look below at rookie DeJuan Blair, thanks to productive instructions from Gregg Popovich, gradually making Pau Gasol work harder for his points.

It's always interesting to see elements of the battle within the battle.
