What makes you think Montrezl is going anywhere? Until LBJ & AD went down the Lakers had the best record in the game. IMO we're champs until the crown is taken. We're not going to give it away.


You just be watching a different game if you think his slump has anything to do with the absence of Davis and LeBron, he looks completely out of it and I love Harrell but ever since that tweet in relation to her grandmother and the buy out pick up of Drummond he’s been a disaster.

Drummond making a strong case not to play him against Gobert.


With AD + AD Gobert is dust


That plays into the hands of the Jazz. They can pack the paint and they can still make Drummond have to make decisions defensively.


Not with a player like a D who can can consistently hit the outside shot have you forgotten who he is?

This issue with Drummond is that the Lakers
are using all wrong! He is not a go to iso player. Look at Gobert. He hasn’t gone at Drummond all night one on one yet, he is being effective.

Once Bron and AD get back, everything will fall in line.

Dre 3-12

Kieff 1-4

Think the Jazz can defend the paint?

They used him tonight in a manner you figure they would with those two missing...which means you get the up/down results. He's been a "#1" option but he's really not a number 1 option.

We split the two game series vs. the best team in the West without LBJ and AD. I'm happy with that.

Rest the starters. Empty the bench. Goodnight.


It's not really a significant win if Ilyasova is the center.


The significance of any win at this time is irrelevant. We are buying LBJ and AD time to recover. A win is a win.

Drummond looks like he is rushing everything right now with Gobert. He's fumbling the ball and short arming everything. He is so out of sync right now

What is he then? He’s not good in the pnr. I was surprised to see his fg% so low for his size before he even played a game for us. After watching him since becoming a Laker I’m no longer surprised.

After that missed lob by Dre its like the air went out of the team - that was in the second quarter. Down 5, had a couple chances to cut it to 3 (or even 1 had they converted)...when they didnt and fell down by 12, just seemed like the team sorta lost their mojo.

He looks like he is afraid to or doesn't understand how to use his body as effectively as he probably should. He looks like Al Jefferson out there with a lot of his shots, but he had a couple of plays where he bounced Gobert off and looked much better. Don't understand why he doesn't do that more.

I'm watching what he did when he was on the Sail Boat crew and what he did before LBJ & AD went down. He'll be OK when the team is whole. Then LINK
