Much better offensive sets tonight with KCP being properly utilized. Lonzo is a good player, and adding another good player to this roster was needed. And the Warriors aren't built to exploit the Lakers inside while the Lakers perimeter length can frustrate GSW.

I'm so happy to see that we're not running the LeBron system, good on LeBron for not dominating the ball so far. I'll keep an eye out for that in the regular season.

I really enjoyed the game, and now understand better how we were built to challenge the Warriors... but unless Mo has a solid base I'm unaware of, I think those two will have their way with us on the inside.

But we will get better so I'm going to look at the glass as half full right now.

We could have challenged this year though.

Maybe they always meant for it to be a two year plan... but it would have been nice to sign a bargain center.

LeBron can be effective in any system
he had 15pts, 10rbs, and 5 assists in only 18 minutes - and he only really called his own # a few times, mostly when going downhill against smaller defenders

he's been doing pretty much the same all preseason - so I'm completely unconcerned about him

For all the trade happy crew

Kawhi 11 points

BI and Kuzma 48 points.

I still want Kawhi next year... but now we will have all three.

Sentient, if the Warriors want to post up Draymond on Kuzma all game, Luke should buy Kerr a new car.

Warriors big men (without Boogie) don't have a lot of size or offensive skill.

I'm thinking more about boxing out on offensive boards and putbacks... but let's see. I hope you are right obviously.

My takeaway is LBJ hardly played... we shot poorly and still were competitive. This is a good feeling... But we need to do it Friday again, and especially in Portland.
