We’re winning this game. Sucks Vando and Wood aren’t able to play but I think the rage of losing game 2 in that way propels the Lakers to win.

Love it and agreed. I think objectively there is a greater than 50% chance that we win.

Can't play both Dinwiddie and Vincent. Pick one, tell him to be aggressive and run with it. Get Christie in there.

After last game when guys were going ISO and not working the ball to him, and then on other side they all got lost on defense, hence the reason he was sitting in the front row on Murray’s game winner. He said they didn’t know what they are doing.

AD said they didn’t know what they were doing in either end of the court which people took as a shot at the coaching staff. Then Darvin was asked about it and said he disagrees with AD, and thinks we have an excellent coaching staff who does a good job. People took that as Darvin throwing AD and the players as a whole under the bus.

Whatever happens, Mr Ham cannot return to this team. Well, unless LeBron walks and we trade AD for picks to jump start a rebuild.

Does altitude change have the reverse effect? Like when Denver plays at sea level, do they feel like super soldiers?

maybe. But the facts were
ISO ball late- Not coaching, player decision
defense- Hamm didn't get lost on it. AD like he has all season had to cover up for teammates in the last couple of sequences. Not a coach thing.

We have video proof that our Top earner walked away from huddles and not listen to the coach throughout the year. That's fine if you are going to be a coach on the floor and not just be a guy who goes iso ball and turns it over.

we all agree Hamm should be relieved of his duties, but there are plenty of instances where it's a player problem.

i hate to say it, but that was such a demoralizing loss in game 2 i don't think Lakers will ever recover. on the contrary, game 2 also served as a wake up call for Denver, watch out for Murry (who always plays better on the road) having a huge game tonight.

Hopefully Lakers have better counters ready to go for what Denver is going to do. We know how they're going to change to deal with our pick and roll. Hopefully we've seen enough of them to know what to do..

We need to help rebounding a little more and turn the ball over a lot less. Take better care of the basketball and we can win the whole thing. We give them so many easy attempts and stop so many runs by throwing crazy cross court passes or just passes behind guys as they're running in the other direction.

Rebounding and turnovers have been the difference. The Nuggets have been shooting awful but they get so many extra possessions that they have been able to make up for it.

We need more effort on the glass both offensively and defensively.

Stop turning the damn ball over!!

Play lakers basketball

Make a positive impact with or without the ball

Spam plays that work until they have to adjust. If that means PnR all day then freaking do that

We're very slightly favored tonight. Were we favored any of the four games in last year's WCF?

Seen this movie before... should have won the last game. Demoralized... and the only thing that can uplift the Lakers is a similar first half domination. If they don't get out to a fast start, the demoralization will linger... and you're possibly looking at a double digit deficit at the half in a quiet Crypto library.

Good luck getting Murray to have 6 points on 16 shots again. That 4Q scoring output by him should've been irrelevant. Figure out the damn offense!
