Must-win. I hope they come out with fire and let the pissed off feeling of losing a winnable game 2 fuel them to dominate game 3. LeBron, stop taking 3’s.

If they attack the basket like their lives depend on it, this will be a comfortable win. The calls are going to be in our favor, so take advantage of it. The one thing I didn't understand about Game 2 is why they were so hesitant to attack Joker at the rim. And that goes for everyone, not just Lebron. He's not as bad an anchor as people make him out to be, but he's also not JJJ or even the Draymond/Looney combo. They absolutely need to start challenging him on defense, which may even put him in foul trouble, or this is going to be a short series.

127th request to have Mo Bamba play in this playoffs. Need to see if his length can make a difference against Joker. The more players not named AD with can throw on Joker the better

A true 3rd needs to rise this series. I think Reaves can be him, but there needs to be a player on this team who we can give the ball too when we havent scored in 2 minutes and will get us a bucket or free throws.

Reaves has been making everything and playoff Rui seems to be a rich man’s Kawhi on offense. I don’t know how sustainable either of those are but they’re working for now.

The Lakers are in deep doo-doo. AD and Bron didn't show up in game 2. Bron did his best Carmelo Anthony impersonation jacking up ill-advised 3's. Somewhere Dillion Brooks is smiling and saying "I told y'all he was old." AD had another off night. Dlo didn't have it. I like the starting lineup for game 2. I also like Rui coming off the bench. Reaves is gonna get paid. I think by contract rules the Lakers can him 4 years $50 million. I hope they do. If Dlo and Schro don't show up in game 3 they may be on the block.

As previously stated IMO a must win game is game 7 of a 7 game series or any close out game. Tomorrow's game is a really gotta have one. If we lose it's not over but the mountain will be Everest-esque. Bron and AD have to show up. It's difficult to beat any NBA team 4 straight. Almost impossible to beat Denver 4 in a row.

LET'S GO!!!

First game, good on offense…bad on defense. 2nd game…good on defense, bad on offense…it’s like we don’t have the energy summon maximum effort on both ends right now.

We’ll need to dig deep and find a way to play hard on both ends next game or it’s trouble…

I do think the Lakers will take this one

I think AD will have a massive game on offense.
I think Denver probably took their eyes off Rui in the 1st half and he made them pay.

Rui has basically demanded attention and AD will capitalise on that this game.

Reaves has been absolutely on fire from the 3 and even though I don’t really expect it to continue. I am certain someone else will have a game to make up for it

Lebron will take over in the 4th quarter. I think he might get a bit of help and have a quiet 3 quarters but I see him exploding in the 4th.

I think Lakers will win this one from start to finish. It might be close the whole way but I see them taking an early lead and maintaining it.

Game 4 will be a much harder game to win, especially given the effort the team had put in so far.
