He has really grown into a dirty little player hasn’t he?

Yeah a lot of guys really didn’t do much in this game, Westbrook at least contributed but that air ball 3 was a stinger

That should change next game. Also, we haven't played much on the road.

PHX, GS, LAC, UTAH, DEN, MIN
Which one look like winnable to us?

The effort and defense was there all night. Unfortunately, we had a throw back shooting game, reminiscent of earlier this season. Lots of open looks, but nothing falling. Bev plays spirited defense, but offers nothing on offense. Schroder and Nunn are still working they're way back into rhythm. Troy has disappointed me these last couple games. Not sure what's going on with him. Getting LeBron back...and continuing to play team ball...should help.

Also, I would have loved to see Christie play in this game. I hope he comes back soon. If Troy continues to slide, it's a easy decision to give his minutes to Max. Hamm has work to do with the continued molding of this team. Not the outcome I wanted, but a scrappy game from the Lakers!

Does anyone know if Rob and Jeanie are Phoenix Suns because I hate them just as much.

Lakers can’t beat good-great teams while committing 17 turnovers. The 3pt differential (16 to 4) certainly didn’t help. But it would also be nice if Westbrook could finish layups or let others shoot.

No moral victory, hole dug too deep

I do like how Ham starts the offense with AD or 2 man game with AD at the top. As long as AD knocking down those midrange, kinda keep their bigs honest and somewhat opens up the lane, harder to double AD on the move compared to traditional low post,
Dammit Rob, imagine THIS AD with 1 or 2 shooters.
Anyway, THIS AD and healthy Bron… I believe, just get in and see what happens

Even if he made that, we still lose. I hate that he has to take those 3s, but alternatives are not much better, maybe reaves can start doing the hero 3s in the future

We don’t have shooters, so kind of fitting. WB and Walker made our only 4 3s with 2 apiece. Just can’t win like that


Yep - while I have essentially tried to just delete some of the games this season from memory, off-hand if we did have better snipers there are some L's there that would be W's.

Team came into the game with an NBA worst 3% percentage, and after this vintage crap performance from 3, will reduce their % even further.

Yeah, they’ve been hot for 3-4 games now, so tonight’s showing is predictable

AD, LW, Reaves and WB, that’s it

Rob and Jeanies inability to create a move is digging our grave. A very deep grave we will not recover from.

I'll go make my pitch, watch myself be flamed, but will take it like the weary-eyed Laker fan I am...

Yep, imagine Hield and Turner spacing out and hitting 3's, or Turner allowing AD to roam instead of having to play at the hoop on D. Just sayin'.

Jeeesus, this dude is dropping 40-20 being cramped up, you’re making too much sense (I do wanna see more AD-Bryant if one of the smalls not producing)

I thought the game got away from us when Bryant started guarding Ayton. That two big lineup wasn't great.

Can’t play 2 big lineups tonight because phx is too small outside of Ayton, and Bryant is not someone that can guard Ayton.

The Lakers will be better with Lebron.

The Suns will be better with CP3.

Troy, Dennis, Pat Bev, and Wenyen can’t drop doughnuts 🍩🍩🍩🍩
We need them to score something versus this suns defense.

I'm not expecting anything on the offensive end from Pat Bev. Schroder is only playing in his 2nd/3rd game back. He's going to take some time to acclimate himself. Troy has taken some steps back, these last couple games. I REALLY want Christie back.
