This loss is on turnovers and AD2 and Harrell combining for 3 points


Drummond at least played defense and was grabbing rebounds, Trezz on another hand was just awful, I donโ€™t want to start to go in that moment were I have to tell myself if the Lakers letting Harrell walk wouldnโ€™t be the end of the world cause heโ€™s been a beast most of the year, Drummond joining has made him put less effort in the games hopefully that changes.


I didnt get to see Drummond play much, but post game they said Knicks just swarmed him when he got the ball forcing him to pass out...is that accurate?


Yeah, Stu Lantz mentioned it a couple of times. the Knicks were doubling and triple teaming Drummond to prevent him from getting to a good position

Knicks watched what we did to their New York Counterpart a couple nights ago.
Reminding themselves of getting swept by the Nets all in nail biters.
If playing the Lakers isnโ€™t enough motivation.

Not a shocker Julius with his revenge tour.
Jules with his tribute to big brother Kobe with all those fade-aways ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ™

1 out of 2 for the NYC trip with the win against KD and Kyrie , Iโ€™ll take it.
On to Charlotte ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ’ช

You think our guys are embarrassed? Nope, most these guys have no shame. They seem to think the playoffs and finals are a shoe in no matter how disgusting they play. We love losing to scrubs. Theyโ€™ll sit back n lose quite a few more thinking LBJ and AD will come back firing on all cylinders and magically get us to the finals.

It would be a grave mistake to think that.

So Vogel could not come up with an adjustment to New York's defense to get Drummond some scoring opportunities??? Really???

So New York "packed the paint". There should already be standard adjustments to this, established a long time ago. In other words,

If they do X, will will do Y.
If they do A, we will do B.
etc.
etc.
etc.

Am I right or wrong?

Drummond getting only 3 points is unacceptable IMO.

Also, how about some lobs? P&R? Anything?

I think this was a lazy effort by all, including Vogel/coaching staff. New York is not that good of a team.

Turnovers are this team's Achilles heel. Even with Bron/AD come back, they were prone to turn it over with them.
