Counts as a W.

No matter how ugly it was. Counts all the same in the standings. Style points do not matter like college football.

no...we lost a 18 point lead again..barely beat a mediocre team...i'll take the win, but lakers need to blow teams out. we're not gonna succeed with wins like this.

Style points don't matter if the team has actually shown the ability to be a good team. This team hasn't. So instead of this being an ugly win, it's a normal win. This is the team that consistently shows up

Haha wow you know what though guys we finally came up on top for once. Obviously we can't give up leads any more especially on this road trip.

We really need Dwight back, and not just any Dwight, the Orlando Dwight.

Problem is we do not have many players who can make a play on their own.

In 2009-2010 .. we had Lamar / Kobe / Ariza / a better Pau / heck even Farmer ...

So if Kobe is passing .. it takes him sort of out of rhythm .. and if the others are not scoring .. It becomes hard for Kobe to switch to scoring mode. Kobe is not the same player as 4 yrs ago.

And if Kobe is scoring team tends to play Kobeball ... others watch .. then the others do not commit to defense as much.

We need another player who can create his own shot

MVP of the game was Pau way to step up in Dwight's absence

Ya he has to get in the weight room and running and jumping again in the offseason. Until he has that chance he'll look like a shell of himself

We haven't seen him yet in this season.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

I'll take the W, but I won't support it or condone it. That W was luck, and luck won't get a team too far in the playoffs.

Monroe is a 16 and 9 player. He's not a scrub. Getting 4 extra points and 3 extra rebounds isn't exactly going out of his norm.
