should have looked for Kuzma more on last couple possessions


Kuz only got 1 shot attempts in OT and made a three. While KCP had 3 and bricked them all.

Also refs sucked.

Don't matter if it doesn't translate to wins. We gain nothing being in the lottery.


we are a lot closer to getting those wins this year....last year, I was already rolling the tanks because it was obvious we were not competitive by this point....I will not be surprised if more of those close games do not start going our way soon

We are very close to being a good team... one winning streak could change everything... hard as that might be to imagine.


We can catch a streak, but we are too poorly constructed to be actually good.

Another L against the Warriors bench.

This one is on KCP miserable idiotic bone head plays, JC MIA and Ingram horrendous FT.

The way we lost against half the Warriors, with KD having the worst game of the season and in such a meaningful day only shows how ridiculously far we are from being even average.

The only players deserving props are Kuzma as the only scoring threat and Randle for the hustle.

Lonzo didn't play bad, shot 50% from the floor but, let's be honest, he is like robot emotionless dude in the court without any meaningful impact.

In fact, you won't even notice him. That's how transparent he always is at staples.

Anyway, another day, another L. Long long season ahead.

Sad part is we're not even trying to tank this year so all the losses are legit. So we're legit a lottery team but without the lottery pick. There's no more excuses for losing. Get gud or get fired, Luke!


Do you want luke to go out there and shoot their fts for them? If we were even an average ft team we’d have like 4 more wins...that’s about talent, not coaching. The roster has crap shooters, crap shooting is the result


Well, Luke is partly responsible for the personnel on the team as well. Remember, Moz was his idea.

Maybe they can rack up another moral victory if they can keep the margin of defeat below 20 on Wednesday.

I can live with Moz if we get that other dude back who can create.

KCP was fouled and JC's shot should've counted. Even with all the issues shooting FTs, defending backdoor plays, etc tonight, the Lakers would've won this in regulation without two terrible blown calls against them in the 4th.

KCP foul not called was a 5 point swing

I think we are mentally weak, but physically talented... in my opinion you can change that enough to be decent. Not enough to compete for championships... but enough to make the playoffs. Add one player... or if one of our guys truly emerges... everything changes.

KCP needs to be traded. There is no point for keeping him. He brings good d and hits some shots once in a while. But I think we can all see he’s not a 20 mil player. We brought him here to see if he could break out. He’s basically trying out for another team at our expense. He’s not going to take our 10 mil year offer next year if we miss out on everyone. Trade him for a pick and some expirings. Start clarkson. Get it over with. Same with brook.

Hopefully that's not called traveling.

Lonzo is actually decent. I mean if you ignore his horrendous shooting percentage, he's actually a very good player considering everything else he can do. DLo is almost completely opposite of Lonzo. He can shoot but can't do much else especially defense.

On a positive note, we are to the point now where just being competitive every game is not good enough...

Still need shooters desperately.

Nope, but it is the bunny hop in the pea patch.

Shooting 22-35 FT for 62.9% won't win you many games. We have to do better.

Kcp in transition was about a fifteen point swing.
