They stuck their center on our guard, clogging the paint. Just like the Clippers game.

Well, when your franchise has lost, what, 33 of last 45 regular season games and shoots worse than weekend warriors at the YMCA from 3 - let's say, doesnt surprise me.

Just smh. Could see it coming, but was really hoping I was wrong.

Lebron doesn’t have lanes to drive when Nurkic is just sitting in the paint waiting for him.

If Russ set a pick and Nurkic is on Bron… he’ll come out of the paint the. You can dump to AD, let Bron attack Nurkic downhill or open Bron 3 if Nurkic stayed in the paint. Just not whatever Russ was doing

Why would any team switches there? Russ can set a screen, lebron is not curry, so the defender goes under the screen, and Nurkic would just let Russ go wherever he wants and wait for lebron in the paint.

So LeBron has an open 3, is that not better than what Westbrook was doing?

He can have an open 3 anytime he wants, that’s why teams will just go under screen. I don’t remember any team didn't dare Lebron to make jump shots.

Our PNR offense might be the worst in the league. Roll man can’t shoot, ball handler can’t shoot either.

Westbrick taking crucial shots at the end of the game. That clown doesn't care about the Lakers.

He still thinks he's the man. He should acknowledge his limitations and defer to Bron or AD when it comes to managing end of game.

Westbrook is 4-of-26 during a 2 game span, tying his own record from January 2022 for the worst field-goal percentage over any two-game span by a Lakers player in the last 50 years
(minimum 25 field goal attempts), per ESPN Stats & Info.

Cavs have a nice squad but those broadcasters should pump the breaks. Clowns.

No team is mentioning the cavs outside their own games because no one cares about them and they know they aren't winning anything. They should have some awareness and try to be classy.


I'm under no delusion and I understand the Lakers are failing and the NBA world is laughing but its pathetic to point it out during a broadcast covering a game that does not involve the Lakers.

I don't want to bring this energy into today's game thread vs Nuggets.

BUT I'm watching the Lakers Compacto of the Portland game (I didn't catch the whole game live) and it is truly absurd that we lost! The energy and control we had at the beginning of the fourth quarter, I mean... ??? No wonder AD was so mad he couldn't even speak at his post game presser.

Alright on to the next...

Turner/Hield tonight: 8/13 from 3
Lakers tonight: 9/29

This was our best shooting night this season.

Also: Turner/Hield combined for 52 points. Turner had 5 blocks. Lakers as a team had 5 blocks.
