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.

09 finals?

Again a win is a win. You can try and argue that all you want but the fact is this team played well except for a stretch of 10 minutes.

No asterisks, no side notes, none of that in the standings. Just wins and losses.

Need to learn how to keep a lead but for the most part there were more positives than negatives. Frustrated the hell out of me but at the end of it all, it's a W.

This team is playing better. To many of you, you look at the lost lead and classify the entire game as a bad one. When you win you win and when you lose you lose, that's how the standings work.

On to Brooklyn

That was perhaps the luckiest win of the season. 5 out last 6. That's good

Next thing you know we lose 4 out of 5. I don't buy this crap anymore. Not until we start playing consistent basketball ..

stop blaming pau. Everyone was getting dunked on.

Yea its defiantly not the guy who guarding him fault right. Its defiantly not paus fault there leading scorer monroe with 20 points. Yes pau scored points but it was completely negated with his god awful defense.

look at the teams we are playing we should blow these guy out resting our guys in the 4th. This is a dangerous way to play every team in the league, like Worthy said knows they can come back on the lakers we gained that reputation and we are keeping it.

Very true, that is how the standings work.

I'm still going to be upset though because we won by 1 point (winning by 1 point is not my sole premise). If we would have lost, which we very well could have, everyone would be going ape [expletive] right now. Some don't feel "as bad" because we got the W. The poor performance would feel 10x worse if we had lost.

Nothing is black and white. Everything has to be looked at in context. Despite our record I don't think anyone would argue last seasons lakers were better than these lakers. But they won more games. Why? They ran the correct pace, had a defensive system, had chemistry

To just believe a win is a win when the lakers have only been winning like this it doesn't hold merit

If the lakers lose most of their games, and only win ugly, what does that say? That says they aren't very good
