Denver and Sacramento would have imo but Murray is hobbling so he can get all nba honors and Monk/Huerter are out.

Past record has little impact in this case, the lakers are rolling at the right time with a healthy LBJ and a healthy AD. Dlo has been the X factor we needed

Lebron is a different animal in the playoffs specially if healthy. Remember the Bulls, Raptors and Nets destroying his team in reg season then almost got swept by Lebron's team in the playoffs. As long as Bron and AD are healthy, they will beat any team. But with these 2, being healthy the whole playoffs is the main hurdle.

I agree with all that which is why I rather get Denver out the way early and hope the play in team if we stay 7/8 is Sacramento or Pelicans. Beat their hobbled asses.

I just feel like LA has the advantage round 1 vs Denver
They are at a disadvantage come round 3

Crazy 24p / 12a is considered a bad game for him…

Agree. Nice to see them with a solid professional win.

Controlled the game and won all four quarters. Even had some highlights for Sportscenter to talk about.

Early bike ride, Lakers win, and date night with the wife. Not a bad day at all!

It’s one of them things where you can like see certain guys would be sleep now. Bron was clunky to start the fourth and turning it over. AD bumbled around a couple times in the first and lost his footing. Dlo came out the third punch drunk and sloppy. Rui and Reaves had little rhythm.

It was supposed to be a schedule loss. But Dlo carried the first and second. AD carried the 2nd - 4th. AR made hustle plays. Rui played an all around game even chasing Mitchell around at one point without his shot falling. Bron had two great closing busts. Hayes was high energy both halves. Spencer and Gabe played great defense together like people wish Max and Cam would have all year.


The early start time is crazy though. Because to get to the arena for 1130 for a 1230 tip they need to leave home for 10 and wake up early. This would have been a shoot around for him and they were clunky and turnover prone at times in what was meant as a schedule loss. but they won

"Quiet game for Rui. He was mostly relegated to corner threes in this one. "

Why....why......was Rui relegated to corner 3's?

Why not play to Rui's strengths consistently every game?

Just like when DLO was mis-used for so many games, just standing in the corner.

Not really anything to complain about when they helped off Rui this game to contest the others. They played matchup zone. He too what was there, didn’t force anything, played his 27 mins, play some d, got some boards and all
