It just shows you we can create the best shots, but unless someone knocks them down, it is a bad shot


It's likely a little deceptive mad because scouting reports likely say just sag in the paint let the lakers shoot 3s. Thus, many are wide open simply because teams choose to allow certain guys just take shots since theyre not consistently going in.

It's like if this was football, a team elects to play a nickel package vs a team the entire game cuz they know just a few guys up front will stop the run. No need to put more defenders to defend the run if a team is struggling to do it.

If I’m being honest, I think LeBron is quietly annoyed about AD’s play and injury. Then DS is in health protocol at the worst time. He is probably frustrated before tipoff lol

KCP is a shooting guard (SG), correct? Then why is he taking only 5 shots the entire game??? Even Gasol took more shots (6)!

If Vog had a TO, he likely draws up a play where if LBJ is doubled, KCP probably taking that shot. Or, I would like to think so.

Based on the score and Bron being +9, we win this game if he goes all 48. Unfortunately, he can’t

I need more of my Buddha blend tea after this one. Sigh. Not as annoyed since the fellas did play hard after the first quarter, but a loss never feels good.

Yea, I was thinking about that when I wrote that and was going to mention that (hence why I said I hope so)...but yea, I wouldnt exactly have asked Wes to take that shot if I was coaching. I'd be aiming for KCP who seemed to be feeling it a tad (3/5 from 3).

The Heat were half assing it themselves.
They had lots of chances to put it away instead forces us to play Lebron 37 minutes

Just watched a replay. After recovering the ball, Caruso took too much time dribbling aimlessly. That pass had to get to LeBron early before Butler could double. I think Caruso panicked. This team really needs to work on late game scenarios. Guys panic too much


The whole play was a disaster for Caruso even the shot... It took him too long to survey the situation before he finally gave it up to Lebron. He had time to drive the ball when he got the ball back.

But I’ve been saying without Schro he can’t continue the same role. He’s been a blackhole on offense. Being short handed he needs to be more offensive minded and attack more instead of just waiting for an open shot... THT at least try to make things happen.

it's what he's here to do.

He's LeBron freaking James, single covered with an open lane.... and he throws it to Caruso? At the very least LeBron going to the basket and trying to finish I'd have preferred.

But he threw it to Caruso who hadn't had a shot in how long?
.


Single covered???

https://twitter.com/espn/status/1363338893806899201?s=21



LeBron made the right play, Butler sagged off Caruso to double-team LeBron the moment he caught the ball.

Why was AC just dribbling like time wasn’t running out? Either pass it or shoot


AC should’ve passed it to LeBron a second sooner before crossing halfcourt then LeBron wouldn’t have gotten doubled.

Coop saying there’s anyways we can swap out Marcus for Markieff right now. Marcus has been playing great. 😂😂😂



I still believe Kieff can warm up later down the line

I think that was suppose to go to Lebron in the post... But he was wide open so he took that shot. He was so surprise how wide open he was that he short armed and rush the shot and missed bad.

Been saying it’s time to play McKinnie, he’s 6’7 and suppose to be a 3&D guy. He also does a lot of the dirty work and more athletic than KCP and Matthews.

What’s going wrong in these practices that got the Coaching staff confused on how to utilize him? 🤔🤔🤔

Bounced around the NBA these past couple seasons.

Randle, Ingram and Clarkson have all exploded onto the scene.

DLo, Lonzo, Zubac, Nance and Hart have found some success.

But guess what ........ we won the f*ing championship last season. So trading all of them away was absolutely worth it.
