Bynum did not cost us the game we where tied in the 4th its mike browns weak defensive coaching

Brown does not control the players. The players were just not executing. Scola was a huge mismatch once Bynum got out the game. Bynum is our anchor. Without him, we would struggle tremendously in the paint.

Sessions needs more minutes than this. Yes, he struggled tonight offensively for himself, combination of purely him missing shots, perhaps the injury, but also (this is not in his control) INCONSISTENT minutes from Mike Brown. Hard to get in a rhythm when you're out of the game for so long and suddenly you're back in. He's our starting PG for crying out loud and he's WAY [expletive]ing better than Blake in more ways than one. Brown needs to play him more period.

Also Pau, OBVIOUSLY seemed pretty disinterested tonight to say the least. You would think & hope after Bynum got ejected, Pau would naturally (as a new supposed leader of the team as well) step it up, but he didn't. Just went through the motions still seemingly. No urgency whatsoever.

Kobe? I'm not sure how much that knee was bothering him or what or Parsons almost shutting him down to some degree again, or both, but the bottomline is he was seemingly lacking that fire as well in the final moments. I didn't see him pissed or engaged enough like the real clutch Kobe we're all accustomed to.

Very disappointing overall to say the least.

Guy that cared the most tonight on our team was obviously Peace and it wasn't even close. Nobody else on the team matched his energy tonight.

yo.

Except for last season Dallas was better than this season and didn't get stomped out by us in the regular season. It's not the same Dallas team at all.

Sessions needs like 32 minutes and Blake can have the rest. They should not split 50/50

It was 28 to 19 tonight.

The person that actually needs minutes is Goudelock.

Bynum is a beast, you take him off the team and they are plain old bad, with him they can go very far. The bench is a lost cause, but the starting 5 is very very good.

On my way home from the game right now and all I have to say is no defense. Lakers allow another team to score over 100 damn points again. Such a disappointing game to watch. It was as if the Rockets scored at will on almost every possession. Looks like that win against the Clippers didn't mean [expletive] because the Lakers are once again only 1.5 games ahead of them. This should be a very interesting last month of the regular season as the Lakers are struggling to create some space in that 3 seed.

The person that actually needs minutes is Goudelock.



What Barnes lacked in scoring he made up for in rebounds while playing that position. And Metta had one of his best games in a while at that position tonight too. I don't expect Goudelock to win priority over Metta or Barnes in that position honestly. Not this year.

if only we had beasley our bench wouldn't really be a problem


Is Beasley still injured? Cause if he is he wouldn't be helping us now anyway.

Is Wayne Brady gonna have to Djokovic? - Robert Flores

Chandler Parsons plays Kobe so well, really impressed by the rookie. He's a very solid defensive player.

Dragic murdered us tonight, not sure why Sessions didn't guard him the entire game. He tore up Blake on numerous possessions with penetration and hit jumpers when he went under the screen. I can't understand what Mike Brown was thinking on that substitution taking out Sessions and plugging in McRoberts. There was no way that Barnes, Peace, or Kobe were going to be able to stick to Dragic, especially when the Rockets use a ton of picks to free up space. Huge error there, awful call from Brown.

Ultimately, Bynum's inability to keep his mouth shut is what cost us this one. He was absolutely killing the Rockets inside but goes and gets himself ejected for stupidly taunting the Rockets bench right in front of the referee. Great job, 2nd ejection this season. He needs to be smarter than that, really disappointed by him tonight and his actions over the past two weeks.
