I have seen Steph pull that crap on multiple occasions

No disrespect but, if your putting what Dame did tonight all on Lonzo, I doubt your right basketball knowledge. That is a simplified, remedial way of looking at it. The Lakers as awhile played bad pick and roll defense in the fourth. Not Lonzo, everybody.

We played a great defensive game tonight. I am proud of our guys. The 3's by Lillard killed us. They were well contested 3's except for the near half court one but who would of thought he was going to shoot it from that distance. I am very proud of our guys.


Next season is gonna be fun, we will close out the season on a high note and take the league by storm next year


+1. Just watching our team lately, including tonight, shows a lot of promise for the next season. Max FA or not next season, this team is definitely a middle of the pack playoff team next year.

Dame was shooting 33% until he went off at the end... Respect to him but he's not Curry. We should have denied him more and let someone else beat us.

Yeah, you are right...him too.

That was an amazing shot though, seriously it was like four or five feet outside of the line.

When Dame is feeling it, he can hit from any where. Some of his best games are against the Warriors. Completely cold blooded. Check out his 50 point games, absolutely ridiculous.

Only way you slow down Lillard is going at him on the defensive end. Unfortunately, Lonzo doesn't put that type of pressure at this point.

Dame and Lonzo would be amazing backcourt. Dame is great off the ball as well.

I don't think it would matter who the Lakers put on Lillard, even with double-teams. He will find a way to get a shot off or get it to the right guy for a good shot. He was just locked in offensively. Lakers couldn't match his offensive burst at the end.

Yeah Kuz was bad but at least he made a clutch shot.

He should be the one that goes if we need to get rid of Deng.

Yep. What's annoying is I'm pretty sure he did this to us earlier this season - he like drained a big 3 over BI to win the game as I recall after ripping us up for about 5 minutes before that. Tonight was like...here we go again 😞

We could use a guy like PG, who can stay glued to a shooter

That loss streak is done next time these teams meet at Staples.


I'd like to believe that... but Lillard is just a huge X factor. Lakers only chance when he's on the floor is pull a Winslow.

I think he meant Lillard had to exert minimal energy on defense. So has his legs for the fourth,

Honestly I wasn't paying attention to that.

Yeah, at this point it's hard to argue with that.
