I suspect they have way too much shooting to justify playing someone who is kind of one dimensional.


I understand that. I'm just wondering if he's even on the bench. Haven't seen him on the sidelines.

I know we lost a few NBA finals but have we ever lost a western conference finals series?


Last time we lost in the WCF was in 1998 against the Jazz


Thanks IG. Didn't realized it was the WCF. I thought the Jazz swept us in the 1st round.

Any time LG brethren, and yeah they beat us in 98 it’s been a long time because we were dominate in the 2000s.

So satisfying to send Harden, Westbrook and Rockets home.

Now they just need that 3pt shooting to hold up. Damn hard to beat if they can keep getting the contributions from so many role players.

8 wins to go.

Come now we beat up on our typical punching bags JR Rider, Rasheed Wallace and Arvydas Sabonis Trailblazers and got beat comprehensively in the WCSF Game 1 to the 61 win Supersonics led by Gary Payton and Vin Baker....before we proceeded to smoke them in 4 straight. We were the hottest team in the NBA entering the WCF and everyone was awaiting the Bulls-Lakers finals. Then we got smashed in 4 straight in a series people thought would go 6 or 7 and instead the ECF which the Bulls were expected to win in 5 went to a very competitive 7 games.

Doesn't seem like it, but at one point in the 3rd quarter, it was only 65-59. Then Lakers went on 18-2 run. Crazy.

I actually saw him on the bench today for a split second but I was wondering the same up to that point.

I'd love a super cut of the Lakers using textbook verticality at the rim game after game, especially Green and Caruso.

He is. But he's wearing street clothes, he was inactive for the last few games.

Way to take care of business, unlike the Clippers. I am hoping for a Nuggets win today to push that series farther but I loved the Lakers effort after game 1 of this series. Houston had no shot, but the scare in all of us from time to time but ultimately couldn't get past the Lakers size and even the Lakers smaller ball.

Onto the conference finals, I really want to play Denver

I cannot stand the Rockets therefore I am still gloating. I gloat for an extra long time whenever any team knocks them out of the Playoffs

AC makes a mockery of the saying White Men Can't Jump. As high as he gets it's hard to believe he's only 6'5". Dude can sky, and he keeps his hustle on.

Dudley has been teaching a master class apparently.

Wow, you don't see this in years past. It's always the seniority status quo. I like Vogel.

Can't wait for the Clipper vs Nuggets. Talking about a must win, this is definitely one for the sailboat boys.

Jokic is putting on a clinic. Murray's being Murray. Michael Porter Jr. is contributing like I didn't expect. Millsap is a veteran stabilizer. Harris is streaky but has hit some key shots. All in all, Denver is playing lights out. They've overcome 16 and 19 point deficits. They believe they can BEAT L A!

Tomorrow will tell a lot about the Clippers. Our Lakers are peaking at the right time.

I'm still holding hope for a Lakers vs Celtics finals. πŸ™πŸΎ 🀞🏾 Talking about cementing a legacy. If Bron can bring that home he'll join the all time great Lakers immediately.
