Way way WAY too passive against Brooklyn. Wasn't looking to shoot a lot of the time, making an extra pass even though he was wide open, often getting the ball back because he should have taken the shot the first time. Or would give up the open shot and try to drive, or give up the drive to try to pass and it often was a turnover or miss.

Dinwiddie is at his best when he's not overthinking and just being aggressive offensively. He's done it for the past few games, but against Brooklyn he was back to playing like he didn't know what he was meant to be doing on offense or whether to be aggressive or not.

Aggression should be the constant. Regardless of anything else.

I feel like every time he shoots, it's not going to go in. In the Brooklyn game it seemed he also felt the same. Not good.

I gotta say his defense is at least good. Needs to make those wide open shots but his defense has been consistent at least.

Stating what a player did wrong and then saying how they need to approach the game to find success is apparently "excuses", because you refuse to be reactionary and act like they're some incapable scrub apparently.

If Dinwiddie was incapable, we would have lost when he had to start and had to be aggressive. Be aware that don't have to panic off every single bad performance. Especially when they're things that are easily fixable and they have already shown capable of doing.

Ham for all his flaws was right when he pointed out that some guys didn't seem like they were in a ready to shoot mentality(despite being open) and he was correct.

This has been the Lakers best lineup by a WIDE margin over the last 2 months and they just proved why again

CLE scored only *8* points in the final 8 minutes of this game


Glad Dinwiddie is doing well on defense. Hopefully Gabe can produce the same. They just don't seem to mesh well when both on floor together.

Yes Dinwiddle defense I think has been a difference maker and a surprise

Do you think his defense is good enough to guard Murray.. who has been a thorn when he plays the Lakers

If lakers play Denver and dinwiddie can lock up Murray he will forever be a laker legend In my book

Spencer is a dog.......Ill never forget his Game 7 vs Phoenix when he was with Dallas when he came out guns blazing and was a big reason Dallas got off to a fast start. Especially when he is with Gabe, he needs to realize he needs to be offensively aggressive for that pairing to not be a net negative

It was just reported a couple games ago that AR/Din had +7ish net rating but Dlo/Din had >+20. AR/Din line up isn’t even the best line up let alone by a wide margin. Dlo/Din is best BY A WIDE MARGIN. We may not appreciate Dlo until he’s gone. How was he the team’s leading scorer today with 28pts yet a 6pt scorer and a 7pt scorer got more props?

Btw today vs Cavs
Dlo/Din = +32
AR/Din = +5

Yeah when Gabe and Spencer are out there together they need to be as offensively aggressive as they are defensively.
