Caruso really needs to learn how to shoot. He is almost getting to the point where I believe he is an automatic miss from downtown


It is nitpicking as his D and ball distribution is on point.

Once he starts hitting the 3's? Oh me oh my.

I dont think its nitpicking when his awesome defense is negated by his horrible shooting. Shades of Artest but in no way is Caruso even in Artest's league as a defender or shooter

"Better shots" Rondo drives me crazy but "Automatic miss" Caruso is slowly but surely making his way there. The thing is...Caruso is a horrible shooter. He is missing wide open looks that should be automatic for people with the minutes he is getting. Daniels I give him a pass because he is a proven shooter but doesnt have the rhythm due to lack of minutes. KCP I never harped on because I knew he was talented and would get his (bleep) together. Caruso is great on defense (team and individual) but his ball handling and shooting are very much below average for a lead guard.

That Toronto game hiccup... otherwise 18 in a row.. WOW!

So 17-2 ties best start in franchise history. What would break it?

The Wizards entered tonight leading the NBA in both scoring (119.4) and FG% (48.2).

The Lakers held them to 103 points on 39.6%.

Every Wizard who played tonight had a turnover.

Bruh Lebrons hairline is the weirdest thing ever...Sometimes there's like a big gaping hole in the back of his head where hair should be...Then next game poof it's gone. What is he using? He probably putting black paint on there.

He's much more subtle about it than Carlos Boozer was lol: https://www.slamonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/carlos-boozer-hair.jpg

Finally a trap game I didn't have to use any Lexapro. I was expecting to be on the edge of my seat and wringing my hands, NOT. Lakers didn't have to "flip the switch." When they got the Wiz down they kept their foot on their neck. Actually the game was not as exciting. Damned if they do Damned if the don't.

The Wiz ended the game at just under 40% FG%. I wonder what it would have been without so much garbage time in the 4th quarter? That was huge clank fest for them last night.

I dunno. I still find it very entertaining when we blow teams out.

Watching LBJ and AD reminds me of Kobe & Shaq, my night, your night. Seems they took turns on who would lead the charge in games. If Kobe was having a rough night Shaq would tell him, don't worry bout, I got it and vice versa.

*The Lakers match the best 19-game start in franchise history (1985-86 & 2008-09). The 1985-86 team started 19-2.


*The Lakers are the only team to rank in the top five in both offensive and defensive efficiency.
