Against the Knicks we were down 17 in the first Q

Against the Wolves, we were down 20-21.

Against Dallas, we have a chance to be down 30 by the first Q.

I think Luke should go for the trifecta and start 3 centers this game instead of two.

I expect great efforts from our team but efforts can only take us so far. Our players have little to no skills so no matter how hard they try, it will be futile. Another loss is all but certain.

Redemption game part III! Keeping my fingers crossed for 30+ points by Luka and him missing the game winner.

Go Lakers!

PostPosted: Mon Jan 07, 2019 12:55 pm    Post subject: Defense vs Offense

Lonzo
Ingram
Kuzma
Lebron
Chandler/McGee

This was a top 3 defense

This is what got our winning streak

Kuzma/Lebron was just enough offense

Ingram is net even. His superiority on defense against smaller two guards outweighs his so so offense.

Look at how he shut down McCollum when they beat Portland
Or how he shut down Klay

The real problem is Lonzo

If you could trade Lonzo Hart KCP with picks for Lilliard

That would solve everything

Or even just sign DLO to a one year max deal

I would do it

DLO swapped out for Lonzo makes us a contender

Actually the perfect point guard for LeBron would be DLO or Lilliard

Preview: Lakers (21-19) at Mavericks (18-21)

Lakers +7/8 o/u 222.5

the Mavs, who in contrast to their 3-18 road record, are 15-3 at home and have won 13 of their last 14 at American Airlines Center.

Only the Denver Nuggets (16-3) have a better home record in the West than the Mavs, who will be thrilled to be back on their home floor after a 1-3 road swing. The lone victory came at Charlotte, when Dallas buried 10 3-pointers in the first quarter to build an insurmountable early lead on Wednesday.

Suddenly the LeBron-less Lakers make their first trip to Dallas clinging to the eighth playoff spot, and knowing James won't be back in uniform for at least another two games.

"We've got to get him healthy," Lakers coach Luke Walton said of James on Friday. "We all talk all year, we need everyone on our team. You don't want anyone to get hurt. That's how the NBA season plays out. We're down in bodies. It's going to be a challenge, but our guys should be excited for that. We've got to find a way to keep playing at a high level and try to finish some of these games out."

It's not just about going," Mavs guard Wesley Matthews told the Dallas Morning News following Saturday's 106-100 loss at Philadelphia. "We know what we can do at home. If we want to get where we want to go, we're going to have to win on the road. We're not cowards. We're not quitters. It's got to happen out here (on the road)."

I hope Kuz is able to play tonight. We show promise without LBJ and Rondo but still can't make FT's and close. We're on a 3 game losing streak. Time to get back on the winning track. We're still above 500 21-19. I think we'll make the playoffs. Once there anything can happen.

If Kuz doesn’t play... I wonder if he’s kind of being intentionally held out (or extra rested) to see what Ingram and Lonzo can do with an offense structured around them.

Dirk stitched The Hem Of His Garment.

Last night felt like they hit the absolute bottom for this team so I'm hopeful not chasing 10+ after the first 5 minutes is a solid goal.

Having Kuz out there will help his game and take some of the attention off him. Hope so!

I'll be so happy if Kuz is playing

Dunno if he will though. I won't believe until they actually call him playing. It's another GTD and yesterday they said no
