So happy about this win - really proud of the effort and sticking it through. Hopefully all the yips are out in preparation for sundays game.


1 for 15

3 for 21

6 for 32

And we damn near won by double digits...that's some hats of to our defense. 2 sides to impact the game on.

I think the Bucks have a serious problem with teams walling off GA's hyper aggression. Those first few minutes were breath taking...that's a huge aspect of his game getting taken away.

Without us locking them up like we did, no way we survive that kind of shooting. Right?


Defense is key, DEFENSE wins championships. "That's just the way it is!"

Bradley's energy was big. Didn't make a field goal, but really competed. Avery is always getting jobbed by the refs. Tonight he got some calls in his favor. Hopefully that continues. He is the guy I would want on Lou Will. And Paul George if they actually give Avery a call, because you know Paul George is going to push off about 100 times a game.


Saying we got no dogs....sorry Avery isnt acting like an asshat and mouthing off like Beverley but no one is going to convince me Beverley is tougher than Bradley on defense.

This win makes me feel confident against the Bucks as in we figured out how to play them. We havent figured out Boston and the Clippers. But Boston Im confident we can figure them out in a series enough to beat them. The Clippers is the only one thats really left.


The clippers are better than the Bucks in terms of they have answers on offense, more multi-dimensional attack guys.

Let’s see how we handle them.


Bucks swept the clippers!

They sure did Harlem but let’s state the obvious,

Kawhi >>>>>> Freek

With that said I still believe Giannis is great and will continue to get better and hopefully develops a better mid range but Kawhi is light years ahead and Lebron and AD definitely knows this.

Find it hilarious Kuzma still being ass as usual. Got carried by the bench. No wonder Caruso led the team to victory in the fourth. Now Lebron and AD and the bench gotta carry this idiot to the finals.

For sure, but I’m just saying from offensive firepower standpoint.

Also, if AD can do this against the Bucks with Giannis and Lopez twins then he can abuse the clippers. Let’s hope he’s ready to eat.

Can someone give me one decent reason why rondo is playing more than caruso


Caruso played 18 minutes, Rondo 12 minutes.


The 12 minutes are about 6 too many. If you want to play Rondo without Lebron for 5-6 minutes a game, that is fine, even though we are still better with Cook or Caruso, but he should never see time with Lebron.

Tie game at half, 48-48

Lakers really looked outmatched for a bit there, almost like they were up against the ropes when down by 9. But give them credit, despite having an awful 3 point shooting night, they have crawled, fough, and clawed their way to a tie game at the half - with AD barely playing (10 minutes)

Lakers are being beaten in pretty much every stat. Shooting only 35%, and only 14% from 3 (3-21). Outrebounded by 2. But for once they get to hang around cuz of FT. And really active physical D.

This is a very physical game, theyre getting punched in the mouth, but to quote Rocky: "It aint how hard you hit; its how hard you get hit and keep going"...Lakers keep going.

I feel good about where they are at as long as they keep this intensity up and relax more on their 3's. I watched Middleton hit a 3 with a very relaxed calm (and wide open) stroke. Lakers need to take their time, and take this in the second half.


Nice assessment πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ€πŸ”₯πŸ€πŸ”₯πŸ€πŸ”₯πŸ€πŸ”₯

Nash won MVPs not because he was the best player but because he elevated his teammates better than any other player at that time. Interesting how the standard seems to have changed now. Lakers are in the negative when Lebron is off the floor and his team's on/off performance is a lot higher than Giannis when they are each on and off the floor.

I found this sort of odd and if anyone would care to address it:


With like 20 seconds left and the Lakers leading by 9, the Bucks intentionally foul Caruso, who makes 1 of 2 (10 point lead), then the Bucks get the ball back and dribble out the last 14 seconds of the game..

So why did they bother to commit the intentional foul and then just "hatch" the ball afterwards?

Here's my guess. With that much time remaining, they may have had an infinitesimal chance to win if Caruso missed both free throws and it's a 3 possession game. When he made one of the free throws it turned into a four possession game and they're lost their tiny chance to win so they just dribbled out the clock

I dont think there is one particular standard like that. A lot depends on the competition for the award in any partcular year, so you cant use Nash in a vacuum as the standard for other years. I think Giannis -- with his stats and team record -- would have easily beat Nash in both years he won.

Statistically speaking, no player is currently more valuable to their team success than Lebron James. That is certainly the case. However, Giannis could very well finish the season with the highest PER in history, DPOY, leader in defensive win shares, and the best record in the NBA. Lebron just got hella unlucky this year.

If two players are close, then narrative might seal an MVP. According to what voters are saying, that's sadly not the case... at the moment.

Good win. Bron spent a lot of energy last night to get the win. . He and Giannis put on a show. AD's two early fouls hampered him in the first half. He had a decent second half. Keef and Kuz hit some timely shots. Kuz's shot was off but his defense was solid. Even Rondo contributed with some timely makes. Bron's going to be tired today on the back to back. Now's the time for AD to do what's he was signed to do. Take up some slack when Bron's tired. Sorta like Shaq and Kobe. One would tell the other "I got this." OK AD, your turn to "get this."

I guess the WCF would be like the real NBA finals, much like during the previous Lakers regime where the winner of the West is almost considered NBA Champion. AD was clutch yesterday. Need that type of game from him against the Clips. Kawhi is going to relentless just like Lebron so we need AD to be the difference maker.

It happens all the time and it’s weird. There are a lot of times when it ends up messing with the spread or O/U.

I’m sure that sometimes it’s a player just not thinking and then after it happens, the coach tells them to back off. Other times, I think something else is going on.

MIL swept the season series against the Clips. Including beating the brakes off them by 28 with Kawhi and George healthy. The WC goes through LA for sure. But I wouldn't say the chip does.
