Cant wait for the "We only beat the pistons shuldnt be happy" thread. Look what did we have to do for some of you guys. Beat them so badly that we get 2 wins instead of 1 . I mean be happy what you can get. ITs one game at a time and we looked very good tonight.

A win is a win. At this point, we shouldn't look for style points.

But, it just seems like this team has to work a lot harder than other teams with more athletic players to defend.

For those of you complaining about Meeks not playing, don't worry. It's only a matter of time until Ebanks gets in Mikey's doghouse for no good reason and Meeks gets the job.

Well, like Stu said, no one can play the "perfect game".

Kobe nearly had a Triple Double.

Also, it's just foolish of Brown to expect the bench to function as their own unit. It's never going to happen.

because the bench had no rhythm and wasn't playing defense, had the starters not come back in Detroit would have went on a worse run and I'd rather the lead not get to 10 before the starters come back in. Better safe than sorry.

And fyi Brown sat them in the final 5. But the bench allowed Detroit to get a bit of a rhythm and a run going prior to that which is why Kobe and Dwight came back in.

bench screwed it up.

Whats the point of having brown as a coach if he cant coach the bench against the worse team in the nba. BIG game james tore mb on that.

I don't see a difference playing starters more or less than 30 minutes ,, lead decreased to 24 i guess and thats when brown played the starters ..

in a game like this , i don't think it will harm anybody if played more than they should be..


Even with MWP numbers he got to leave the game come to him if it did .. but don't force things while you have 4 other players on the floor that are more consistent ..

but at least he didn't act like he is MJ tonight, in contrast what he tried to do against both Portland and LAC ...


Did they even played the princeton offense ? or did it look easier because it was the pistons ?

not gonna give too much praise. This is what they should have done from the beginning. Now let's see if they will improve mentally and continue on this 'W' trend.

Majesty, you seem like a level headed guy, but I think you're walking a fine line by defending MB on everything here. At what point is it ok to criticize Mike Brown? Can we not also say that he didn't prepare the bench enough to hold that lead(a lead they did not even let get out of hand to begin with imo)? He is the HEAD COACH of a professional basketball team, the Lakers, whatever troubles arise in the future cannot all be dismissed from MB's fault. I don't want to take away from the win tonight, but I felt I had to share my opinion on the matter.

People love to find a negative in any p0ositive, it's the culture nowadays. Honestly, it drives me crazy and it's nothing but futile.

A win is a win, beating a better team doesn't count for any more than beating a bad team.

Like I said, it's gonna take 20 games for them to find their way.
