I missed the game but we won!! Just like we expected, scoring 75.


If they could shoot, it would have been triple digits

Better get those transition layups in the regular season because perimeter shooting be like

Luke mentioned they were supposed to run him off the 3 point line but failed to do so.

I have liked Caruso more than Ennis but we have already limited the number of Laker games he can play.

I've been really critical of Randle lately, but tonight he looked real solid.

Great game from JR. Player of the game imo.

Kuzma - OK he isn't starting, but did anyone notice WHO FINISHED THE GAME???

Clarkson had an absolutely awful game until he fed Kuzma, then finished well off 2 stellar assists from Julius Randle.

BI finished the season last year shooting better than he's shooting now. When he practices his shot and mechanics during the summer, does he think of doing it with someone guarding him so he has to focus on setting his feet efficiently? BI had a couple of very intelligent passes that JUST missed or were mishandled. He hit 41% of his threes in college. I know this kid can bury open 3's if he just gets his head clear of whatever is in it right now.

Hart - good defense.

Ennis - very unsteady game as a starter from a very steady backup PG.

Lopez - NICE to see a real center out there. This team could be another level or two better playing real centers.

Lakers 41% shooting wasn't good, but the Kings shot 31% for the game.

I still like Caruso better than Ennis. He just seems scrappy. And a good change up

I guess the silver lining is senior citizens Vince and Zach were carrying them while the lakers were carried by kuzma, Randle and bald (but 23 yrs old) Caruso?

Truly incredible scene playing out in Lakers locker room, as players stop to visit with family of shooting victim Quinton Robbins.

I'm happy we won, but that just looked like two disgraceful teams out there.

I was watching the end of the Yankees game, but when I tuned in the middle of the second quarter, I thought they went back to playing 10 minute quarters because the score was so low.

The only things good I saw were Caruso and Kuzma's play and maybe Lopez too, although he wasn't in there that long.

It looks like our season depends completely on Lonzo's fragile legs and I'm not even sure he's enough to rescue us against any of the decent teams in the league.

I pray we don't sign Randle to a max contract.

Ingram is just plain garbage right now. Can we afford to start him in the regular season hoping he will eventually turn around or do we make the switch starting Kuzma over him? I hope Luke will make the right decision.


By the way LG, where are we on that IQ test before allowing people to make accounts?


I don't know. So far we've required the remedial to use their iq as their screen name...

You missed Lopez scoring 10 pts in only 7 minutes starting the game!! He made 2-2 threes (in back to back shots) in that 7 minutes. He's terrific!!

Our D looked good with Lopez. Zubac is just awkward in the game. Ingram shows flashes I still think he needs time.
