Steve Blake, point guard extraordinaire, will make his triumphant return to wearing purple and gold on the hardwood tonight against the New Orleans Hornets (if you don't know, now you know). Lakers Nation caught up with him at practice yesterday as he discussed easing into his minutes, how the Lakers are adjusting more than sacrificing, and that he hasn't played 5-on-5 to actually emulate the new system he'll be playing in for the first time tonight.

Mike D'Antoni has alluded to how he sees Blake as a great fit for his offense both as a spot-up shooter and playmaker multiple times since becoming head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers and he can now finally unleash the force that is Steve Blake. Season saved.
