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


Bron has been excellent late, as has AD all year on the other end. They usually get you the right plays 8/10 times

I love how DLO got the defensive stop and hit the dagger three right after this

That's how I like my crow, raw


Hell yeah! Stuff like that just makes the plays better. Respect for the acknowledgement

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.


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


True but I guess I always knew the Lakers were better than the Pels and a big reason the Lakers and Nuggets last year become stagnant is with a lead, its natural to let the gas off a little bit against a team you know deep down is inferior and thats when I like to call the fake comeback happens. Sometimes the inferior team wins 1 game down the stretch due to the shot variance and energy of the home crowd (2008 Celtics vs Hawks Game 4 Joe Johnson game) and they COULD have won this game but in the grand scheme of things, I really wouldnt have minded even losing this game. But its clear the Pels even if they won this, are the inferior team

The pelicans did not win 1 game this season where they trailed entering the fourth. Zion, BI, CJ wherever … they don’t close those games. They are winless in that scenario

Call me crazy but we didn't play our best basketball. Big when we can win in a dogfight like that. Building up that big lead was essential because we just didn't have consistent offense we could go to when we needed it.

I think we match up well with Pelicans. I hope Zion is healthy, and they can get deep into the playoffs. I like most of the guys on that roster, and it would be great if we could meet them at some point if we're somehow able to get by Denver.

Very good win... Usually hard to beat the same team back 2 back on their home court. DLO stepped up tonight.

Glad they were able to win a bad shooting game from Lebron and AD.

Defense has looked way better last 2 games tho.

I wonder how many 7th seeds in history had a better record than us. 12 game over .500 is a lot.

I would fly them straight to Denver, rent out a hotel and lock it down and get them used to the altitude … bring in cooks, therapists, and make the most of these days without going back to LA

I think we actually got tacos for that game? Which, you know, don't eat those. Eat something else you enjoy. It is officially a cheat day today.

The winner of the Dubs - Kings gets an angry Pelican team.

Saw it coming a mile away. Pels have no clue how to win against competent teams. This was the perfect game to bet on given the line.

Good for the Lakers, but I feel bad for Zion. Got injured and his teammates had nothing to show for it. This is the difference between poorly run orgs and bottom of the barrel ones like NO.

I think he is fine. Vincent played really well and Ham smartly rewarded him.

They are also the one who's putting their franchise on ZION, who's been very injury prone to start his NBA career due to weight issues.

Remember when Klutch wanted to trade DLO for another malcontent client Murray?

They don’t deserve DLO saving their ass as much as he did this season. Clown ass personnel evaluators.
