A very fun game just took a very emotional turn. I hope Pat McCaw’s fall/Injury looks worse than it actually is.
Looked very bad. The way he came down on that leg after Vince undercut him looked horrible, so much so that I was a little shocked his leg wasn’t twisted like Hayward’s was earlier in the season. Vince looked devastated he hurt a guy like that and couldn’t even look at McCaw.
Russell was playing like crap. The coach didn't like what he saw and benched him. The other guys did well so he rode the pine for the night. Coach said he would start the next game and there was no message or problem. Praised Russell's attitude on the bench and said that the others were simply playing better on that night.
I am absolutely still a believer in DLO especially considering his play before injuries,
But I have to say it's nice to have a core of players who I think all Laker fans have easily rallied around. The DLO debates last year were some of my favorite discussion, but it was kind of a bummer that he created such a divide among Laker fans _________________ Austin Reaves

Another poor shot choice but options were limited. OT! When this was originally scheduled to just be on league pass because no one expected this game to be anything I knew they were going to have to move it to a national channel. This game has been so great
Fultz got a triple double tonight. Breaks Lonzo Ball's record for Youngest Triple Double in the same season Lonzo did it. _________________ How NBA 2K18 failed the All-Time Lakers:
Jodie Meeks suspended 25 games for violation of anti-drug program
Washington Wizards guard Jodie Meeks has been suspended 25 games for violating the NBA/NBPA anti-drug program, the league announced Friday. The punishment will prevent him from being on the team's postseason roster.
Meeks tested positive for banned compounds ipamorelin and growth-hormone-releasing peptide-2, the league said.
"For the past nine years I have been humbled every day to have the opportunity to walk into an NBA arena and see the name Meeks on the back of an NBA jersey," Meeks said in a statement to ESPN. "As part of my commitment to playing in the NBA for nine years, I have been subject to countless mandatory tests for any and all drugs including performance enhancing drugs. I have passed each and every drug test without issue for the last nine years.
"Because I have never used a drug of any kind I am absolutely heartbroken and perplexed with the news today. Let me be clear: I have never taken anything whatsoever for a performance-enhancing reason. I respect the game of basketball too much.
"I look forward to exercising my rights under the (NBA's) collective bargaining agreement to bring this matter to arbitration and to clear my name in relation to this wrongful accusation.
