If I'm not mistaken we now have a 10-7 record when LeBron, AD and Russ are in the lineup, and I think we've won 8 of our last 10 with all three of them playing.

We knew this would take some time, and if we actually had a 10-7 record 17 games in while staying healthy, we might've said to ourselves, maybe they'll start to take off from here.

Yep agreed I said this earlier in the season. That's not his natural build and he does not hold that bulk well he's much better slimmer.

Don’t like that it took another OT game against a garbage team, but I guess when you dig a big hole in the first half, you take the W…particularly for a team as desperate for Ws as the Lakers are.

Still played solid though! Good defense and good reads on offense.

Just couldn’t hit a shot

You really want to be happy that we win but then you look at who we beat by barely then you realize that it’s not time to get excited yet, this team has a lot of work to do if they want a lot of fans to get invested into this team not by beating teams who are ready to blow it up i.e. POR and NY.

W is good, but yea, hard for me to get too hyped over falling behind by a bunch, coming back, getting a nice lead in the 4th, watch it vanish before you can say "another overtime?"

Ok, yes, he contributed his huge 2 points when needed.
Let’s not hype THT up. Jesus Christ, he had 2 points in 24 minutes.

Well people wanted him to "bulk up" to be stronger to play center but it didn't work it just made him slow and clunky.


This reminds me of Pau Gasol

I guess defense and passing doesn’t exist. He wasn’t spectacular but he contributed to a win.

Didn’t know we were expecting a guy who gets 5-6 shots a game to be a big time scorer.

Yeah, people see a tall person with long limbs and think they need to bulk up in order to be effective, despite coming here with proof they're able to be a top level player with the body they have.

I think whatever AD was/has been doing for the past few games since he came back from injury he needs to bottle and replicate as much as possible for his entire career. He is a major problem on both sides of the ball.

When he took the ball on the top of the key and spun for a layup at the basket it was proof of how ridiculous his talent level is. Not only with his ability to get to the basket, but the IQ to know that play was available and how it would help subsequent possessions. Dude is just unreal.

Why do we always go down by 20+ then we start mounting a comeback? It's happened a lot and I think it might become a bad habit. This team definitely has potential. It just needs better focus. Monk showed up today. We just need THT, Ariza, and Stan to follow in his footsteps and we're goochie. Bench Westbrook but the Lakers would never do it. At least cut his minutes and play THT and Reaves more.

I mean partly it's because the Knicks unsustainably came out playing at a nuclear energy level. They also made 6 of their first 7 threes or something. Randle made a lot of bs shots too. It was obviously going to regress to the mean.

They can't come out with the same energy against Milwaukee. Something tells me they'll be the hunters in that one, now with Lebron back and the champs coming in to town.

Happy with a win finally! Lakers' free throws down the stretch in regulation were embarrassing, but I guess that's par for the course with this team.

THT played basically all of his minutes with Westbrook off the floor, I believe. That accounts for a large portion of that +22.

The stat is totally relevant: it's entirely about Westbrook, it indicates that Westbrook was not on the floor

WB was +5 against the clippers while other starters are -, would you say he played good? Hell no.

I did like his defense. That is probably his most promising trait, his long arms should allow him to really be a force on D once he gets more experience.

I don’t remember the last time they legit beat a good team.

Maybe the Heat? Butler left in 2nd and Bam fouled out.

Nets not the same team.
Jazz were in funk and playing a concussed Donovan Mitchell
Mavs? Luka didn’t play and still almost lost.

Embarrassing season so far.
