Can LeBron shoot free throws also from 30ft away?

Is there a FT rule that says he can't?

Kudos to Josh Hart for delivering two big treys late in the game!


I like that he can make teams pay for packing it in against LeBron late in the game with the pressure on. Gives LeBron openings and that's all it takes when it's late and close.

3s, defense, and Lebron. I think that might work.

Agreed; Hart seems to be finally finding his groove again. When he is on top of his game the team is so much better.

Was cursing at Rudy Gay the whole game. Washed up dude was scoreless yesterday but decided he would be Kobe for a day vs the Lakers. (bleep) that dude.

Go back to sucking. Oh wait, we face them again this weekend.

Bet he goes for 60 next time.

Love seeing the improvement in Kuz's defense also. Love seeing all these young guys improving. Hart has been in kind of a slump but stepped up tonight. His defense has also been stellar. B.I 's midrange is money and he's been doing his thing on defense. Zo keep up that aggressive play.

No. If we're serious about that suggestion, then maybe we should tell him. Wasn't Nick Van Exel the guy who takes FT from 2 ft behind the ft line?

No idea but we're 3 wins away from having a better record than our 2015-2016 season.

Some thoughts:

Lebron is truly a superstar, haven’t had a lakers who can impact the game since Kobe, almost forgot what it felt like.
The only thing for lebron is that he is not that clutch.
But he is a perfect basketball player in every other sense.

And it is really a pity Paul George didn’t come to LA, this team is contending for a championship with him and a new coach.

We have really good players, just no superstar with lebron.
Lebron and Paul George would have put made us really really good
Defensively we would be the top team in the league, and offensively we would be just behind Warriors.

Kuzma = really good scorer and developing his defense and play making abilities

Ingram = Poor version of Paul George, but Ingram defense is already one of the best in the league, he has been quietly shutting down opponents best players game after game, he is just brilliant defensively, his offensive game needs work, he is taking a lot of inefficient long 2s. He needs to develop that 3.

Lonzo = he is really good defensively, but sometimes is too chill and have lapses, he is a really good point guard, the only thing prevent him from developing into an elite player is going to be his shooting form.

Hart = he is really good 3 and d player. And he can finish really well, I haven’t seen Luke use him as a finisher though, he could flourish a lot more with a better coach.

And we have a great center rotation.

Luke is just really really bad.

He doesn’t know how to develop any young players.

We really need to try to get Kwahi next year, anyone else is not going to work.

AD is a pipe dream, not going to happen.

Durant is a pipe dream as well.

Yeah he was. I remember in the nba live game they had him standing back too lol

Anyone saying Lebron isn't clutch hasn't watched him at all the last decade. The dude has straight up carried his teams multiple times in the most pressure filled situations in some of the most important games in some of the toughest arenas. I wasn't a fan of his when he wasn't a Laker, but I had to give him his respect because he goddamned earned it.

Good win.

All West teams in the East/West matchups won tonight. That will likely happen a lot this season so the Lakers need to keep racking up the Ws.

Hopefully Ingram isn’t out too long, there will be slippage on defense without his length put there to bother opponents.

Without Ingram and Hart for 3 quarters, we had problems on the defense xD

Ingram's freakish wingspan will be missed
