Sooner or later WB's going to have a good outing alongside AD and LBJ. I hope it starts with this game. I also want to see someone set the tone on defense in the 4th this time. Time to start a win streak.

GO LAKERS!

Hoping to see improved defensive effort and some chemistry.

Lakers so far look like that awkward blind date that that you watch in fascination but can’t help cringing about.

They have to figure this out soon. Why not tonight?

Go Lakers!

I just want to get past the first two games so we can start winning. I think we can win 7 or 8 of the next 8 after this game. But, I didn’t expect us to win the opener or this game because we’re not ready for this level of play yet. Both the Suns and the Warriors are title contenders in my mind. With that said, if we can avoid playing two really bad defenders at the same time I think we have a chance tonight (no Monk & Melo together lineups).

Hopefully they show more defensive competence. The suns are just as capable as the Warriors in ball movement and good offense.

They also are more equipped than GS on the defensive end. So anymore Tasmanian Devil basketball routine and bricks on open 3s will result in another ugly outcome.

We get this win it makes up for that fail against GSW.

Will say since PHX lost their opener also, they will likely be guns blazing for this one. So wouldn’t surprise me if we get worked given all our injuries.

This would be a great chance for Russ to show what he can do!

This Laker team will have teams coming at them “ guns blazing” all season long. Lakers always have that issue just because they are the Lakers.

But this season they are a roster of iconic names and looking vulnerable due to the age and player chemistry issues.

Everyone wants this one W on their records. They will have to overcome it until they prove the level of play matches the names on the back of the rosters.

Another tough game since were still missing 4 rotational guards… Meaning Rondo will run the 2nd unit meaning Westbrook/Rondo combo… I just want to see Russ look comfortable out there.

Unfortunately I don't see a way how we can win this game. Our shooters are terrible and D is non existing. Hope I am wrong.

This is going to be an interesting game. Lakers are yet to win a game after LBJ/Drum mocked Jae Crowder

Too many consecutive Ls for this team since preseason. Can't develop a losing habit for the guys, I know Bron won't but the rest of the team....

Last season, I would have chalked this game down as a W without thinking twice. This season is going to be stressful for sure.
