That's how it is when you have youth closing games. They tend to get rattled. so is LBJ.


I would’ve felt bad for Bron if he missed both free throws again and we ended up losing lol


Laughable at times man but we know him very well. That's why we love Kobe so much.


I love Kobe most but I love Bron too 💪

If they are gonna play thru Ingram he will have to become a way better and quicker passer and scorer. I'm guessing we are taking the lumps now....I honestly trust kuzma more because he is more decisive with his offense. Bi dribbles and dribbles....misses open players....its maddening this game.

I hate to say it...late game, you MUST have KCP in to shoot FTs.


I have faith in Kuzma....he just missed. It happens to everyone.....but Ingram had the ball for the majority of the time that possession and the Mavs failed to foul him.....big mistake on Lakers part, because BI is average at best from the line.

They didn't even deserve that win.

Pathetic.


Dude, look at your 18 total posts, all negative bashing comments. Do you even come here just to hate?

Clown.


How is he hating, when its the truth?

When you only post the negative and leave out the positive I think that's hating.

We need a backup center for the 100th time. I see a rade coming soon. Idk if it's for a center but after this game it just seems like something is gonna happen. Just a feeling

You can't keep up that pace when you're only playing like 5 guys. That's the problem. We can't play bench players for long because they suck so badly. Our starters play too many minutes it's impossible for them to keep pushing the pace.

Then in the last few minutes of the 4th quarter, they can't close out games because they can't score because they're too tired.

Under a minute, they tried to make BI the man, but he didn't deliver. Lebron clearly had the San Antonio free throws on his mind. I'm glad he hit that second free throw. Hopefully that's behind him now.

Close every game. Have crazy scoring and transition outbursts when they’re rolling and have chemistry.

Have some meltdowns that lead to L’s. Rotations need to settle more and a new group of guys to learn how to play together.

I just have faith they’ll be better later.

I also have a weird gut feeling Brandon or Kuzma will be gone by the deadline

True...I'd rather take the real W than the imaginary "moral" one.

we have lost games this season because of no legit rim protection when McGee is off the court....and we will lose more for that reason if it is not corrected

After the first half, I was hoping in a blowout primarily to see Wagner in the 4th/garbage time. Obviously that would have be a win too easy for us

Does anyone agree that the win looks awfully similar to the Orlando win last year at Staples?

Fatigue might have something to do with our starters playing so poorly at the end. You cannot take shortcuts. Players HAVE TO take rests. If a player could play at a high level for 48 minutes, we wouldn't need more than 5 players on a team.

We've seen it from Kobe when he was tired, his jumpshots were just not as accurate anymore. I blame fatigue for Lebron underperforming in the 4th quarter today. He played 39 minutes in this game.

Beyond not having a backup C, it’s really not bad on paper...Rondo and KCP have just been awful and Hart has struggled.

There's a universal recognition coming together on this board: We need another McGee type. Would like to see what happens when we do.

I'm not ready to sell BI or Kuz yet...but man, that D at times is just...
