Agreed one game at a time. Losing is never fun so ill enjoy this win and move on to the next.


Just because we beat the thunders, doesnt mean we're back and going to win the championship. Lets take 1 game a time. We havent done much this season so far. We're playing team basketball. everyone is touching the ball, talking to each other, huddling in a group during the free throws, passing to the open man. We still need to get these habits consistent. We still have a long way to go.


Agreed one game at a time.

Fact is people wanted this team to play better, they are, so lets enjoy it because for all we know we can go back into crap mode the next few games.

We beat the best team in the NBA. If anything it gives this squad confidence that they can go out and be what they were expected to be to start the season.

Agreed.

This should be a major boost.

Now, let's go out there with that same intensity against the Hornets. We don't have a cushion to 'play down' to people

Exactly. I'll be there on Tuesday night making sure the crowd is LOUD.

Definitely agree with the comments above on how beating OKC must give them tremendous confidence, but I don't want it to get to their heads...knowing the Lakers they can very easily lose to NOH with the way they've played this season. 1 game at a time is exactly how they should approach.

Yeah here is the thing.

The Hornets are NO JOKE. Especially with Gordon back.

They just BEAT the bricks off the Grizzlies and will be facing us with THAT momentum. The Hornets will be a tough game so we better bring our A game or the Hornets will do the same to us.

We'll see.

The Pelicans have Gordon back but we also wiped the floor with them in their arena and that was without Nash/Gasol playing.

Anderson is the one that worries me, he torched us for 31 last meeting.

Every game is new and we just need to continue playing like we have the last two games and we'll come away with our third straight victory. Also the Pelicans beat the Grizzlies in the final five minutes, they never dominated that game until the final minutes when they went on a big run.

That's why we need to come out with the same intensity and style. Think D'antoni will put Nash on Anderson? Like he did with Novak?

Lakers can't be overconfident with their recent victories and must continue to come out and play with energy, getting each other involved. I'm confident we can keep a winning streak going for a bit if they stick to their mission.

No we'll probably see Clark on Anderson because of his length

ya anderson can competently post up so putting nash on him may be a mistake. novak cannot post up or drive so nash makes sense. kind of like sepholosha where he's really just a shooter. anderson if need be can post up. nash may guard vasquez just because he's slower than gordon. but who knows.

Where was this energy, intensity and hustle 30 games ago? A bit too late now. Not going to win 29 of the next 36 games to make the playoffs.

We may make it the playoffs if we go 25-11. But it's still a bit of a longshot.
