The Twolves have so much more offensive talent than the Lakers.


ok? still always hard to go into Utah and score many points...pace, officiating, Gobert, etc.


btw, was it you?

Does anyone STILL wanna defend Walton? Anyone at all? Or we finally done with it?


I'm done - don't necessarily want Luke to be fired but at the least we need some good assistants


Like I said, Luke sucks as an X's and O's guy and has no flipping clue about cause and effect.

Randle's in and on Mitchell, Mitchell can't do anythign and they move the offense away from him.

The moment Luke benches Randle for no reason Utah immediately goes to Mitchell and he gets an easy lay up and an open three...


Luke continues to look like the terrible coach he is. He probably can't even connect why it happened.

Luke can get out for all I care.


One word: rigid

I bet if you ask him he will talk about minutes or something else not terribly relevant with a few minutes left in the game


Am awaiting someone in the post game or at practice to bring up Luke's rotations, or bring up the fact that Randle seemed to lock down Mitchell when he was in and the moment Luke took him out the offense went back to Mitchell and he scored and ask him if he feels he should have kept Randle in as it seemed he was the guy having the most success against Mitchell and seems to be their best defender.


Reporters nowadays just ask the most sensational questions but don't even challenge coaches anymore. I sat through an arrogant media that pushed Mike Brown every chance they got, but with Luke they aren't doing it at all. It's frustrating because HE is a coach that SHOULD be pressed and questioned. Especially when he pulls dumb crap like tonight.

Yes there are a bunch coming up. The first 6 weeks of this season is about as easy as it gets in the NBA.

The people complaining about BI are blithering idiots. But if I reply to them directly, then I get suspended.

Freaking idiots tho


Maybe you got suspended because you were calling fellow LGers idiots?

I know you've been watching BKN games based on your posts in the Russell thread. You should know better that we'll have a hard time against those guys. Demare + RHJ are defensive beasts and Russell, as much as I dislike him, will probably roast us.

I wish there was an ignore button so I could eliminate those complaining about Ingram. He made a couple dumb turnovers towards the end, but I've seen good progress from him this year.

Ball seems a mess right now psychologically. Instead of getting fired up when things go wrong, he seems to shrink and disappear. If Luke can't get his head right, he needs to find a professional who can.

The bright side is that we've been competitive against better teams, but we need that one leader with killer instinct to take these kids to the next level.

No wonder Lebron wants to come, he sees these beta personalities as tailor made for him.

lakers have a few days off. get some rest practice hopefully a win against detroit.


On the bright side...

5th consecutive game lakers were in it in the 4th with less than 6 mins to go

in fact until tonight lakers were either tied or leading in the 4th for 4 straight games

But the shooting has to improve without any loss on defense for lakers to start winning these games. Tonight they missed so many "momentum" shots...they hung around though. They just have to dial in better when momentum starts to go their way.

I'll probably win COY just sitting there on the bench watching Klay, Steph and Dray ball out each night.

The Walton hiring looks so stupid now.

Did anyone else have no audio on Spectrum the entire game?

I assume it's not my cable or tv as every other channel was working.
