It’s a no lose situation tonight. If we win, great...if we don’t I’ll bet Luke is canned.


I see it as the opposite. Can't afford to lose, yet no real satisfaction in beating one of the worst teams in the NBA.

That said, as long as we avoid another Knicks debacle, it should be fine.

Someone trying to sneak their way back into our squad... (photo at link)

There’s one face out of place in Luke Walton’s pregame scrum

I noticed we have started off bad for a while now and I checked and the last time we held a first quarter lead was.... literally last year....2018.

Lebron does things we all take for granted. One of the very underrated things he does is to slow the pace down. With Lebron out our pace is way up, which means we can score a bunch but also have 40 put on us. But the Lakers have performed better this year with a slower pace, and part of that is Lebron slowing things down so the opponent can't get on a 26-2 roll. The last few games the Lakers have been flirting with giving up 40 in the first quarter, that's when someone on the Lakers just needs to take the full 24

Goes without saying that today is a must win. We’ve blown too many games we should have won already. With a brutal stretch coming up and razor thin leads over the team’s behind us, we can’t afford anymore losses against lottery teams. In fact, we probably need to steal some games we should lose to get a little comfortable.

I've slammed him a lot but I have to say, he probably would have been a much better player if anyone else had drafted him. I think living in Los Angeles was really bad for his development.
