That's true.

But all that hard work very easily was a loss if ATL executes.


On the other hand, a blowout win if the Lakers execute. 21 turnovers.

Absolutely. That missed call where they reversed the decision and gave it to Atlanta was unacceptable. That seriously could have ended our season right there. A clear slap on Kobe's wrist, no call and then they give the ball to the hawks. SMFH.


They had to. You can't review the very clear foul, and the ball was off Kobe. Bad rule, but it is what it is.

Seriously, did Kobe step out of a time machine?

A win is a win. It appears the same as a win versus Miami in the standings.

This isn't college basketball where you have a RPI.

No doubt but we have to play much better if we hope to be successful the rest of the season. Especially on the road. Kobe's gotta go back to being a little more of a facilitator. He can stay in this scoring mindset that he's been in since the Allstar Break, but he's gotta find more of a balance.

I know but how the hell do you miss that call? Refs are professionals for a reason correct? It's not like the baseline official was far away from the play and had trouble seeing it... and they need to change that rule for that very reason.

Need to not have turnovers like tonight, glad we won, at the end of the day we used to lose games like this. Now we're winning them.

Room for improvement for sure. Glad we won but we can't play that way against okc

I saw the entire season's story on kobe's instense look... confusion, frustration, anger, revenge and redemption.. this man just hates losing. and now we're starting to look like a team. without those costly turnovers, i say bring it on!!

I swear if the laker do end up just getting to the championship. This season will be made into a movie.

 

all these players landed

100 mill payroll

coaching switch

injuries

jerry buss dying

Coming back from all that to get to the ship.

 

Classic sports movie.

Lakers haven't executed consistently all year.
