If only CJ made a couple more shots right and Zion wasnt injured?????

Please.....the Lakers were ALWAYS better.

Likewise, the Nuggets were ALWAYS better than the Lakers last year no matter what D'Lo did - unless D'Lo decided to go nuclear that entire series reminicent of Van Exel vs Seattle in 1995.

Mike Malone wants it most. And we won’t get the calls we got tonight, at least not in Denver

If Zion stayed on the floor, that might have been a different result.

If the Lakers play this sloppily against Denver, they'll get swept. Our offensive execution in the 4th was woeful until the ball went into Austin's hands.


Let’s be real. How much of that is simply you can’t pass it to the post tonight with AD since he can’t bend over and post up? That’s really it as he killed then on garbage plays while being stiff. Those Luka go away if they can dump it to him like they have done all year vs the pelicans

Given how LeBron played in the 4Q (he was awesome the first 3Q) Zion’s injury is probably why we won. Lucked out

Yup. I think the win might even sting more for the Pels knowing the win was in their reach.

Im sure the Spurs WANTED it more in 2002 after being humiliated by the Lakers in a 4-0 sweep the year before. Didnt matter.....Lakers still dusted them off in 5 games.

It was a tie game when Zion left with 3 to go. Lakers were on their heels. Once Zion left, Pelicans really had nothing to offer. It could easily have gone the other way

The Lakers were the best “clutch” team in the NBA this season, going 24-9 in games that were within 5 points within 5 minutes left.

Crazy stat

Not sure why they played McCollum instead of Ingram at the end but I'll take it. Hope Zion is ok and can send Warriors or Kings home, don't like either team

I like the response and I like Ham sticking with him, but damn he let Jose break him down for the dribble and talk s to him before that and it was so similar to Brown and Murray.

But he responded !!

7th seed. Our record is a really strong 7th seed. Denver is a really tough opponent, but at least we don't have to worry about an elimination game for a little while.

Big game from a lot of people. Team effort, AD nor Lebron played very well, but guys like DLo stepped up. 21 points 6 assists 1 turnover only, 1 steal that was HUGE for us. Nice to see him making plays defensively, then coming back and hitting a 3 late to give us a 4 point advantage that we'd eventually win by.

Lots to feel good about, getting a lot of rest for this next one which is going to be tough. Hopefully Vando rubs some extra strength tussin on that heel and gets to come back to us asap. We missed him today, hopefully another couple days is all he needs.

Because CJ has been their best guy down the stretch to close the year. And because Ingram offers no defense or intangibles when you want and need a must win. He’s like Vince Carter, all talent but no heart or brains to use it when you need him

It doesn’t matter where the game is, the Lakers are always going to get calls. That’s what having star players does.

Business handled. The "how" doesn't matter.
