Wonderful game to get a win on. Played some squirrelly looking basketball for a while there, and still won pretty comfortably.

Test game without AD Thur, Nets. They may or may not have KD and Kyrie. Both expected to return on the 18th.

Lakers win 112-104.

Held T Wolves to about 42% shooting. They did shoot well from 3, however, which kept them in the game (16-34). Lakers finally found their 3 stroke, going 11-26.

Lakers only gave up 38 points in the paint. However, there were numerous plays where the lane was just simply way too wide open.

Solid win for this next stretch of games. The way I figure, Lakers without AD likely will lose to "championship contender" clubs, but scratch out wins vs almost all other teams. This means that, yep, it is quite likely the Nets game is an L. But all good if it happens...right now this about LBJ and getting DS/TRez and the rest to play well during AD's absence.

Schroeder was dictating the offense for much of this game. KCP also took a lot of shots, and Gasol took a lot compared to his previous outings.

Kuz had the fewest members of the starters as Kief, Gasol, and Harrell were all playing well at the big positions. Kuz had a nice, well rounded game tonight. The gameplan wasn't for him to score though.

It will be a dog-fight either way.

This is how it will be for awhile, similar to pre-AD with LBJ. Team will be fine; albeit, I fully expect them to drop to 4th or 5th in the standings eventually until a (ABSOLUTELY healthy) AD returns.

He's the lone superstar on the squad at the moment, this will be the norm until AD returns.

In the next few games, we hope we either blow out the other team or gets blown out by the other team. Less playing time for lebron

We all love Anthony Davis.. but I think you are being way to dramatic, no way we will drop that much.

Is it just me, or has Towns kind of had a disappointing career given how good he started? Projected to be the next Duncan, more like the next Amar’e Stoudemire. Huge stats but not much actual impact.

The Lakers needed every bit of LeBron's 13 boards. They broke even 38-38 with the Wolves.

An TBH somewhat a slap in the face to Amare’s career achievements on how poorly KAT has been.


Another big man who doesn’t like to bang in the paint and do the dirty work on the defense end. You compare him to AD’s game and it’s night and day

I know Amare wasn’t what he was supposed to be but let’s not compare a guy who hasn’t been to the playoffs to someone who went to multiple deep playoff runs and was a force during the PHX days with Steve Nash.

I felt Vogel could of held Lebron out an extra 3-5 minutes in the 4th with our 12-15 point lead.

Got the feeling Lebron reinserted himself into the game without the coaching staffs call.

Kobe used to do that crap with Phil all the time as well. I remember one time Phil yelling at Kobe to sit his ass back on the bench

Amare would bang in the paint blocking shots and grabbing boards with force.

Don’t think there’s too many times we can recall KAT ever doing so against us.

Imagine if Duncan went to waste on a team going nowhere for the majority of his prime. KG and Kevin Love can relate to what Towns is going through right now. Then the team finally paired him with DLO, but when DLO was healthy, Towns was injured, and DLO got hurt trying to carry the team and is now out 4-6 weeks after needing surgery on his knee, as Towns returns.

The sad reality is that DLO and Towns may never actually get to play together with any kind of consistency.

The T'Wolves may just have to sell high on Towns now while they can, and then on DLO when he comes back, so that they can get some picks/etc out of it.
