Schroder and KCP - combined 0 points for your starting guards!!
Awesome 👏


And a hungry THT goes 11 points 11 rebounds in 16 minutes. Vogel will go down with the ship.

We actually had great looks tonight but like we’ve done all series, bricks. Then there was over passing. Guys scared to shoot. Unbelievable we’re the defending champs. Too many shook guys out there.


we are not hitting 3s. what is the point in keep looking for open looks.

You’re right. LeBron should drive into a packed paint, collect offensive fouls or possibly turn his ankle again

Lol suns win 2 in a row, lakers now have to win 2 in a row chances are low but not 0

Pelinka has some serious work to do to get consistent shooters on this roster

If CP3 is hurt, the Lakers can still win this series. But I don't see how they can go much further than that unless AD is 100%


sounds logical on paper but if you've been watching, cam payne will just have more playing time and that's not good for the lakers.

According to TNT, James had some hot words for his teammates as he headed to the bench in the 3rd. What a leader! Kobe would be proud.

Good. Have some pride. No reason to just bend over for them. He was the only one in the 3rd to say I’m shooting with confidence. (Bleep) if I miss, I’m still gonna shoot.


Kobe wasn’t exactly a guy who wouldn’t let his teammates have it. Pau was the brother he never had, and he infamously referred to him as the White and Black swan. He also infamously roasted his teammates viciously in a practice during the Byron Scott years, calling them all trash and that non of them were doing anything for him. Kobe wasn’t known as a warm and fuzzy guy for a reason. Competitors get pissed when they’re losing.

It’s really simple. Either our role players do what the Suns role players did at home or we going Cancun. Game 6 needs to be a team win. Game 7 will be our stars. If our role players choke at home again then it’s a wrap and time to clean house.

Donuts from our starting guards. 0 pts combined.

LeBron can only do so much and he is a shell of himself but still played respectably and put up 24. Even Kuz put up 15, some of the others guys should take a long look in the mirror.

Oh Clarkson, we miss thou now!

I wish we could sign Payne for the mini MLE but I think he's played himself into a good contract.

I’m gonna be an optimist and say Lakers’ plan is to go to game 7 in all their series to give AD more time to heal… I’m not hearing anything else, it’s all part of the plan!

If Lebron scored 50, we would've lost by 4.

All else equal of course

Or... we can hit our open shots at a decent clip. They don’t have to be 40% but next game is a must win. We need the role players to hit shots just like the Suns did today. At least make their defense think twice about selling out. LeBron is a big guy, old and coming off injury. We need to be close to average from 3

Dear Laker fans. Please don't make fun of other teams. small teams don't have the privilege of attracting big stars. Obviously they will have less success and rings. doesn't mean we make fun of them. They have to work very hard to even make it to conference finals. Its bad Karma.

we and the entire were making fun of SUNS and Clips just 4 days back. Look how things turned out

This loss is on Vogel. Too slow to make adjustments...sticking with poor combos...and not playing tht and trezz. They play Drummond too much...I don't see what he does that benefits the team. His defense is ordinary...bad on screen and rolls...he offense should just be put backs...yet he starts...

One thing I don’t understand is in the 2nd quarter when we couldn’t buy a basket, Frank didn’t even bother to put Trez in to give us some energy or spark.


Unfortunately Vogel has proven time and time again to be a bit stubborn with his rotations. Add that to his lack of in-game adjustments = no bueno!


Dude, you are against one of the hottest teams through out the regular season. Without a full force, don't expect to beat them when they are in full force too. AD contributed an average 30 plus points in the 2 wins. Any genius will not be surprised that without AD this team is struggling.


True without AD... but the role players have to step up. Not sure what is going to take. Maybe finally now since their backs are against the wall? I expect them to respond on Thursday and bounce back

on the Lakers he would be on the bench...or just spotting up...no dynamic play if u aren't a star.
