Line at 12.5...oh boy. Another long layoff before Thursday at philly. We may have to wait until next Saturday for most realistic chance for next W.

I would normally say the lakers have a shot tonight but itís them on a back-to-back vs. the better team well rested.

Lonzo Ball's left calf was tight before the game and he wore a sleeve over it. During the game, Ball experienced tightness in his right calf and will be re-evaluated tomorrow before the Rockets game.


Any word on Lonzo playing tonight?

I'm looking for small wins

Please just let at least 3 out of the 5 starters play well. They can't seem to play well at the same time.

It seems pretty clear that our best starting lineup (if you assume Ball's not getting benched, and neither is KCP) would be:

Ball/KCP/Ingram/Kuzma/Randle

Especially in a game like this one, surely. I hope at some point this season we see this starting lineup, but if rumours are true in the way Randle has responded to coming off the bench, then it doesn't seem like he's sticking around and Luke has no real reason to invest in him.

Cautiously optimistic that we'll put up a fight today. Most likely either we'll roll over after a barrage of 3s, or we'll fight, use our length and contesting to force them into a poor night from 3, and we might wind up with a shot if we can get some offensive flow.

I'm not saying you're right or wrong but the interesting thing about projected starting line ups from LG is that when ever the line up changes and we still suck, then LG just makes up another starting line up. At some point you gotta think someone will be right.

I just posted this in the Injury thread;

Per Serena

Luke Walton says they're going to watch Lonzo Ball's calf tightness, but he will play tonight.

Ok. So itís still hurt so donít freak out if he has to sit even if folks think he should stay in.

Randle shouldnít have a problem with Capela.

It's crazy how many people are clamoring for that to be our starting lineup. Like, it's not a coincidence.

I actually think we match up okay with Houston on paper, tbh.

We match up with a lot of teams, the thing is we donít know how to win games.

According to BMP our only net positive players are Nance, Pope and Lopez.

According to RPM our only net positive players are Nance, Pope, Lopez and Randle.

Depending on how much stock you put into these stats, you could come to the conclusion that this team sucks.

Not looking forward to this ugly loss but I'm still going to watch it with a heavy heart.

Harden/pnr and CP3/pnr will be a nightmare all game.

Capela gonna eat. Harden gonna eat. EG might finally break out of his slump.

My goodness.

If Luke isn't changing the starting lineup, then he better have a short hook. I'm so sick of watching our starters dig a double digit hole at the start of seemingly every game.
