Almost like Vogel just wants to lose game 1 on purpose so the opposing team let their guard down and then he launches the counterattack. The true zenmaster. Lose the battle win the war.

Vogels a puzzle for me. Some games he's genius, others he's bush league. I liken him to Kuz, inconsistent.

Kuzma was pretty useless this game but I’m not even gonna say it was his fault, I noticed lakers offensive approach this game pretty much shut him out. I didn’t see any cuts, he barely took his usual 3s, and he was crashing for boards but suns played that well.

If anything, Vogel needs to make up his mind on rotation now, we have many playable players, but this is not about feelings anymore, the same 8-9 guys should be playing every game and we live with it. He was very decisive last season( granted, we didn’t have a lot of choices) in benching McGee, dwight, start Kieff, etc.
if Kuz is not even scoring, what separates him from Wes or even Kieff? Why not give Bmac a chance when we couldn’t make a 3 especially during the times CP3 or Booker is off the court

I feel we lost because of poor shooting (free throws and jumpers) plain and simple. Yes, maybe we could of won anyway if AD, LeBron, and Kuz had been playing playoff basketball, not the low effort game they put in. Better offensive schemes would of helped as well. But anytime a team shoots as bad as we did they deserve to lose. We clanked open shot after open shot all night long. The good news is we can’t shoot much worse, so if our defense holds up we should win several games on better shooting alone.

I am still confused how people on this board fail to realize who AD is. Great player no doubt but he is not a championship caliber/leader type player. He is a Bosh (more talented) type. Remember this guy had a younger in his prime Cousins, a very good Jrue, Rondo, and many decent role players and still barely made playoffs. Davis without Bron on this team is not even a playoff team.

All the lower seeds won their first game, except the one lower seed who are supposedly favorites. Go figure. LOL!

I feel the same way. I don't think he's getting the most from what he has. He can play 8-10 players but that requires coaching skills.

I've said it many times. I guess some are getting tired of reading it. I don't think Vogel is the best coach for this roster.

I wonder if he's getting and listening to advise from his staff?

He just won a championship so I think he's earned the respect. I will not question his coaching moves even though I don't like some of them, like not starting Gasol, very much.

He had Cousins on his team for half a season in 2017 and then 30 or so games in 2018. In 2018, he swept Lillard's Blazers as a lower seed without Cousins.

Let’s see what he does tomorrow. Vogel didn’t care about specific matchups in the regular season. Game 1 in the playoffs are usually the same, it’s what he does tomorrow that counts. At the end of the day our players need to show up.
