Sweet win over a pretty good Cavs team.
Teamwork and defensive effort for a change.
Triple-double for the King, 38 pts, 11 rebs, 12 assists.
Big games from DJA & Russ Westbrook with 20 points each.

Coincidence team looks better defensively when Dwight starts or playing some minutes at C?

This has nothing to do with Dwight’s +/-… It’s about Lebron not playing C for the whole game.

They should have, then it'd be a 3 game winning streak.

Is Anfernee Simons and Nurkic coming back soon? Cause that’s the only way they have a chance of getting in

So what i got from this is 2 things.

1. If we play the guys who actually play like they are hungry and willing to hustle out there we look pretty decent.

2. Melo and THT should never ever get important minutes for this team. Like ever. One is not an NBA level talent and the other one if he isn't hitting shots is basically a liability out there.

THT got his contract and i haven't seen one ounce of improvement from him since 2020. Reaves is 5-10x the player THT currently his. Which is shameful because Reaves shouldn't be, THT's potential is great. However it is only that. Cant live of off potential alone.


What a great win. We looked like a team out there. As we did against the Raps.

The ball dies in the hands of THT, melo at least is a knock down shooter


I agree when Melo hits shoots he goes on a tear. However he can go on droughts as well. When that happens he shouldn't play big minutes. Or important minutes for that matter.


Saw what happened tonight. When Melo did like the 50 hook 🪝 for the season, coach Vogel had enough and to the bench he went for never come back.

Those hooks and all those techs are so detrimental and for me more toxic than Russ clown plays, just saying...

No surprise. THT is a ball stopper, indecisive, fumbling-bumbling, one handed guy with the basketball IQ of a 8 year old.

If Russ could play most games like he played tonight Lakers would be 41-31 instead of 31-41.

LeCarry. Laker's last 4 wins came from Lebron putting up monster stats. Maybe Lebron didn't really that pandemic break in 2020. Lebron is just gonna bulldoze thru everyone in the playoffs. Load management is for humans and Lebron isn't human. I mean if teams start triple teaming Lebron, then the other guys have better make their shots.

LeBron is a alien.

It was great seeing Love put LeBron in a headlock after the game. In the postgame presser, Bron apologized for throwing down that vicious dunk on him. He said he wish it could have been someone else. They seem to have a great relationship.
