So, you're saying he's due for an off game?

Early blowout probably the only thing preventing Towns from getting 50 in this game.

Russ vs D-Lo could be an interesting match up. Both like to score, but defend, .. not so much. Should be fun DOH.

Maybe. Can’t have a 6’9 guy only have 1 more rebound than 6’3 guy, or have 5tos. He’s going to have to do more than just score.

But if he is top 5 we should be straight. Right?

Excited. This is only the wolves. We should crush them.

It actually is a interesting question at this point. Is he really top five at this point? Yes his scoring is insane right now. But dude is giving little to no effort on defense and if teams is struggling, he stat chases and then mails it in after hitting his personal quota.

Truthfully at this point, because he is playing no defense, not sure we can call him top five anymore (I think his scoring is making people think something that is not true)

Top Five-ish (no order) for this SEASON ONLY
Embid
Greek Freak
Jokic
Durant
Then decide between Luka, LBJ, Curry, Demar (this season), Ja, Tatum, Towns, Booker.

Truthfully because he focusing basically offense only, it’s hard for me to call him top five at this point. Not to mention he had failed miserably to lead this team through the season with key players missing unlike someone like Curry who carried the Warriors with Klay, Wiseman etc for early part of season.

Warriors were by far the best defensive team in the league and still 2nd with their DPOY missing several weeks. It's a team full of long, athletic, 3 & D wings.
I don't think Lebron's impact is top 5 either, but let's attempt to be intellectually honest here.

Another blowout L with a fake comeback…followed by leaks from Klutch and counter leaks from Jeanie’s friends.

Just looked at the remaining 13 games after tonight, ABSOLUTELY brutal. Real big chance Lakers miss the PLAY-IN tourney IMHO.

Thoughts?

Fun Fact: since their last win streak of 4 back in early Jan, the lakers have yet to win b2b games.

Every team besides the lakers since then has won b2b games. This includes tanking teams like the magic, rockets, pistons and thunder.

If THT hits his first 3 he drops 21, 5 dimes in 27 minutes.
Or he misses his first 2 3s, then its 3 points in 16 minutes.

Russ misses at least 3 layups driving from the left side.

Need to beat Pelicans twice to even get in as 10th seed. Need revenge win vs. OKC. Need to show they can start better vs. Toronto when we see them again. Need to beat Wizards again.

he's not but that's ok. Like was said on the radio this morning. When AD gets back he needs to be MJ and bron needs to be pippen.

We will only win games if the other team decides to not show up. You don't lose how we have lost and think we are capable.

Obviously, AD makes us respectable on defense, but bron, russ are both equally bad which means AD is in for many nightmares.
