Another [expletive]ty loss.

 

Lakers are consistent in lack of defense and turning the ball over though. And allowing unknown players to go for career games. 31 points for Troy Daniels who averages 5 points/game this season SMFH :angry:

Lou played alone tonight, some help from Deng and Moz but that was it. Clakson and Randle sucked big time, Ingram is great at D but his offense is not there. That FT performance by JR was pathetic, something's wrong with him.

The loss is on Randle and Clarkson for their lack of showing on both ends of the floor. Good job.

Everything was in place for Randle there...all he had to do was hit the freethrows.

I hope people realize the key part D'Angelo Russell plays in the offense now that you've watched this team without him for several games.

 

He runs the offense very well and it's literally night and day without him on the floor in terms of offensive flow and the ease at which players get looks.  This team has been playing alot of ISO basketball without him and while they've been able to grind out a good win or two, it's been tough to watch.  We need Russell and Young back BADLY.

Just remember the loss hurts because we're good.

 

This loss wouldn't have hurt last season.

I'm not too sad about the loss...we aren't doing anything this year. The team is still wildly exceeding expectations.

There's absolutely no reason why he should be shooting that 3 anyway.

For those blaming Randle... A handful of Star caliber players would have had difficulty hitting three in a row on the road in that situation...

On top of that, Randle hadn't taken many shots the entire 4th quarter.

You can't pencil in any game for the Lakers. We should have beat the undermanned Mavs at home and definitely should have won tonight as well. 

 

Next six teams (with the exception of the Suns and Nets although we almost lost both of those games too) are tougher than this depleted Grizz team.

Your best players have to set the tone defensively. How are you supposed to be a good team when 3 of your top 4 players are horrific on that end of the floor? Until they start stepping up this team will never reach its true potential out there sadly.

Maybe so...but I really believe that if you make it to the NBA, you should be able to shoot freethrows.

Randle has a history of missing clutch free throws. He needs to get mentally tougher in those situations.

yo.

I don't care about Randle's missed free throws as much as his lackadaisical all-around play tonight and negative body language. I don't know if his injury is still bothering him.

A lot of ISO plays, and stupid hero balls, that is so true, but I don't know if that's going to change with D-Lo back.

Clarkson needs to learn how to play team basketball.  While he is our 2nd best scorer off the bench, he rarely ever looks to make plays for his fellow teammates.  It's ironic how guys like Lou and Randle whom we've thought to have one track minds have evolved into decent playmakers while Clarkson has seemed to flip flop and has carried a SCORE ONLY mentality.

To many times he's forced acrobatic/highly contested shots near the hoop.  On other occasions he'll drive, get caught, then have to make a pass mid air which often results in a turn over.  I'm hoping his play improves because he's been very inconsistent and extremely selfish on O.
