You never know this forum has so many doctors until AD sits out a game.


Doctors I would never want to see

What a (bleep) start that was the precursor to a terrible game and Russell gets cold when we need him the most.


It wasn't a bad game after the (bleep) start. Down by 12 and ended up losing by 4


Ill give only Wenyen positive marks. Everyone else (especially Russell) can go kick rocks....for this game

There is no maybe. The Rui start pretty much screwed them. They lost all momentum when Rui came in during the third for him too. Rui isn’t strong like Lebron

then let him sit the rest of the season with Lebron if that’s the cause if he can’t even give 20-25 mins

Should've known a team like the rockets was going to show up and play hard against a team with an obvious weakness inside like the Lakers right now. I blame the team composition for the majority of this one, it was a clear weakness going into this game, and reportedly they knew they'd do this weeks out. Especially with Bamba out maybe a month.

Just stupid team management from a franchise like the Lakers. How does this happen?

The Lakers couldn't get anything going inside offensively either, and their shots weren't falling at any consistent rate. Plus the lack of size inside for rebounding and you have a game where we needed a lot of luck to win. We didn't get it. Oh well, see you later .500

Worst night to have a bad shooting night... Specially on how hot we shot it last night.

Hard to win with both DLO and Schro shooting bad. Just not good overall shooting.

Rui was shelved for some reason. 17mins when we needed size in there.

2nd Chance Rebounds and lack of interior paint defense killed us today.

Why are you whining when the lakers knew going in before he came back that AD would need surgery on his foot this summer, that he had a minutes restriction to start the return which is why he came off the bench, and that he could not play back to back nights? They knew all this, nothing was knew. They said this in the Memphis tnt game that ad was going to sit the next night and that had been the medical staff plan all along.

They basically announced last night that they were willing to forfeit tonight's game. It's okay -- they've got all the time in the world -- until they don't.

Lack of size? Sure. But wouldn’t that mean we should be able to move the ball better and getting better shots? We are 9-42 from the 3, how can anyone expect to win games with numbers like that? The effort tonight is just not there


It’s all related whenever we don’t win in the paint or outside shooting also, it’s not good. I would be willing to bet that the stats back that up.

The MIN and NYK game didnt truly piss me off like this one. In fact I wasnt ranting at all during either game even if Rand-ALL and his one dimensional game going off did annoy me. But this one is a real gut punch against a dog-(bleep) team.

Exactly! We’re fighting tooth and nail to make the play-in and management says “eh, we’ll be fine.” Like….

It is fair to blame him because he didn’t even get one rebound while he was on the court. Everyone else on the team but him hit the glass. He dug that hole to start the first quarter. And in the third when he came in they attacked him again. In the playoffs he’s going to have to help on the glass, contest shots, and all. He outweighs Gabriel by 25 pounds and Vando by 15 pounds. He’s literally the biggest guy on the team and didn’t get 1 rebound, not a steal, not a block, not an assist, nothing in terms of fight.

That start Ham gave him is what lost the game because they played them even or beat them every quarter that Gabriel played the most minutes

By the middle of the 2nd quarter the Lakers had 42 points the Rockets had 44 paint points. Watching them constantly go inside to no resistance and always get 2nd chance rebounds was very aggravating.

This (bleep) is embarrassing! We beat the Pels , only to move from 9 to 10 and then we lose to the damn Rockets. I don’t care if AD or bron didn’t play. We have too much talent to lose to a team vying for a lottery ball. We have been 2 games from the 6th seed for almost 3 months now it seems and it’s the same (bleep) ! We win , only to lose when we have a chance to move up smh

Rui may be the one exception where he deserves all the (bleep) he gets from this game. I dont blame Meathead for going to Rui to start. I blame Rui for being garbage

When the coach put him in a position to fail, coach gets 90% of the blames, not saying Rui had a good game or anything

I agree Demarcus who is another bo-guarding pork chop would of easily contained Sengun and his bo-guarding pork chop tactics.

Boogie being out of the league and not being able to make it work with multiple teams these past 3-4 seasons makes me think there’s a lot of behind the scenes stuff that he’s a bad teammate.

Same story for Dwight.

I’d like to give Serge a tryout but he might be washed....
