It was dumb to challenge there. Would not surprise me in the least that Ham thought he would get to keep his challenge


If they don't challenge, Jokic shoots 2 FTs there and probably makes both, so they'd be down by 4 with 3.6 sec left?

Do they still gladly take the challenge back to be down 4 with 3.6 sec left?


There was over 3 minutes left in the game when that challenge was called....who knows how those minutes play out....

Absolutely moronic to suggest that...you DONT GIVE UP YOUR LAST TIMEOUT WHEN YOU ARE ON THE ROAD IN A CLOSE GAME...period.

This is an embarrassing season.


Most Laker fans aren't ready for that realization.


Embarrassing was 2013-2019 and 2022. We had a very hard fought series against a team that imo will go B2B.

We won 1 game and were in the playin with our two stars healthy. 2019 was brons 1st year. 2013-1018 there was no delusion. Let’s be grateful for the bubble otherwise

Pelinka better sack up.


We got 1 LA Fitness championship, which I’m grateful for regardless because it was a tribute to Kobe and they should have won that all considering.

You’re spot on about Pelinka sacking up.

Rui isn't too small, he is too slow.

We needed Vandy in the absolute worse way this series and I would argue we needed to play Prince (another unexplainable Ham decision) more in the series..

And obviously the smartest decision would have been to develop Christie more during the season instead of using Dinwiddie and later Vincent instead.

Size AND speed killed us on the perimeter.

Also, we shot like (bleep) from distance again today 29%- with Russell (2-10), Reaves, Vincent and Prince going a combined 3 for 19.

We got outscored 48-30 on 3's, big reason we lost

But much like game 3, AD was a non-factor in the second half.

In those 2 games- BOTH TWO POINT LOSSES MIND YOU- Anthony Davis scored .....


ONE SINGLE POINT in the FOURTH QUARTER


Note: And only 5 points combined in both second halves

Any chance he was hurt?

If he was no one said anything about it at any point. You know they always say that basketball is a game of matchups so presumably he just does not match up well against Denver. (I was responding to that last question so "he "equals Rui)

Not only vando can’t score, he would allow Jokic to stay in the paint and help. Even he could play, it would be for situational subs(like the last possession )

your takeway from my post was that I am putting the loss on Lebron?

I disagree, you almost always end up needing a timeout in the closing minutes of the game, especially on the road..

And yes, he (and AD) would have gladly taken it back for a chance at a lost shot with 3.6 seconds left down two...

If he didn’t challenge Jokic probably goes 2/2 on the foul shots so the ending sequence would have been moot.

NO name calling dude. Pointing out that one of the myriad of reasons (a really big one) why we lost those two games by two points is because AD scored 1 point in the 4th quarters combined is not iditotic...

Nor is it blaming him directly tonight since he was clearly hurt...

It is simply pointing out that it ultimately killed us when he is our most consistent scorer and has been our most dominant producer...

You’re implying that he had an open shot and was too scared to take it. Jokic had walled him off and had to give it up.

Let go of this fake notion that Lebron is passive. If anything, he’s too trigger happy at the end of games more than anything

See above post, name calling is not necessary and the implication that I was blaming him (bad foul calls IMO took him out of G3) is not correct- just stating the obvious

Ugh. Again, it was 99-99 and even with the two free throws it is only 101-99 and you have no idea when that decision was made how the next 3 minutes would play out....

You DO NOT give up your last timeout in a close game when you are on the road (against the favorite and defending NBA CHAMPS and also facing elimination to boot)......PERIOD

Our Gone Fishing was weak

In fact most of them haven't been very good. This is a discount gone fishing this season. Recession gone fishing.

The difference in this series was not Jokic and Murray against LeBron and AD, it was Porter and Gordon. Those two guys are both better than the Lakers third best player.

That is a good point. Extremely frustrating series as the Lakers led the vast majority of the time, yet only won one game and gave up two buzzer beaters. Not sure what changes are needed, but they need to do something.

that whats so frustrating. They are beatable and the right tweak would have us up in this series. Coach 100% has to go. I just don't know who the replacement is.

I would love to see Minny beat Denver but I think Nuggets will win due of their playoffs experience. Denver in 5.
