No, they just want games to be played at the same time so teams won’t make roster decisions based on outcome of earlier games.

Not really a back thing. It’s a hip flare up and he’s had them multiple times this year. He has a hip flexor that he suffered in the preseason and it causes spasms as he’s said before but he’s managed it all year. He only missed 7 games this year with it.

AD never seems to be healthy heading into the playoffs, but you know he’s gonna play through this injury and help his team

Oh crap... If he pulled his back. We will get our chance at OKC after all. LOL!


LOL without AD the Lakers are not winning 2 games in the play-in.
Ham can't take out LeBron or AD because the bench will blow even a 50 point lead.


You only need 1 win.


My bad, what I meant was they're not winning from the Pels or the winner from SAC-GSW without AD.

I think scheduling everyone during the day was easier or something. It had to be all or nothing. Couldn't be some games during day, some games during night. This is to discourage tanking, positioning, throwing games, etc.

Tuesday night in New orlean


So….we all rooting for New Orleans on Tuesday?


I don’t think the Lakers could lose that game even if they wanted to. They own the Pelicans and Scott Foster will be in the house.

The only game we lost to the pelicans was the game DLO was out and AR was still on the bench. We had a starting group of Rui/vando/lBj/Ad/TP
We have literally destroyed them in other 3 matchups

The initial belief is Anthony Davis experienced hip and back spasms after being pushed in the air by Larry Nance Jr. and landing awkwardly, a source familiar with the situation told ESPN.

Darvin Ham said he is “extremely” optimistic about the status of Anthony Davis moving forward, and thinks it was a spasm.

We’ll likely speak to Davis soon in the locker room.

In terms of the Nuggets. I am not saying Nuggets shouldn't believe they would smack us, but I still think if the Lakers are locked in we can have a close series.

Lakers always lose close games to them. Nuggets seemingly always hit incredible contested shots vs us and barely win. If luck is on our side this time then you never know what might happen.

Man, y'all be trippin. If Ham sits Bron and we lose the lead he's an idiot. If he plays him and we get a blowout he gets no credit. SMH Team knew my aging heart may not be able to stand a squeaker so they saved my Prozac for another day.

GREAT WIN!!!

They need to make sure Murray still hits every (bleep) ridiculous shot against us, and Jokic too.

If AD ain't 100% Tuesday... we may strategically sit him to get him closer to 100% for the 2nd play in game.


Absolutely not


Absolutely yes. Depends on how hurt he is. Roll him out too early, he's ineffective and further injures himself. AD getting hurt in the playoffs is a 50% occurrence now. Reminding me of 2021. This effing sucks.


He's fine. It's AD. Everything hurts. Everything causes a dramatic reaction. He wasn't on the floor grabbing his ankle.


You ever throw out your back? It feels impossible to even just walk, forget about doing anything remotely athletic like running or jumping. Back spasms can sideline a player for weeks, if they’re bad enough. Even if they’re minor enough to play on, they can absolutely cripple your game since you can’t explode at all.

Last year 7th and 8th this year, are considered a playoff team in normal settings.

“No doubt that I’m going to play” he says of Tuesday.

I was hoping for better coming into this season, but 47 wins is not bad. Better than average team, that's about it.

This is a 50+ win team if it does basic things like sign playable backup bigs and doesn't start its worse players. The team's value is always depressed in the regular season, except that first Westbrook year. That was a trainwreck.
