How often have a better Lakers team beat and up and coming team.

Stop being a homer. We are young and other teams can turn it up and we can't yet.

 

That excuse doesn't hold when you've completely outplayed the other team in the 1st half and then go away from what was working after halftime. It's one thing to be blown out by a clearly better team that has controlled the pace of the entire game. It's another to collapse completely in a matter of minutes due to a lack of sticking with fundamentals on the defensive end.

 

It wasn't a neck-and-neck and then the Hornets pulled away late. This team collapsed, plain and simple.

It's a game of runs we played incredible for a stretch, poor for a stretch and even for a stretch.

Charlotte is a superior team, and at home

You've almost convinced me, throw me one more sports cliche. I'm so close.

It's gonna be Charlotte and Cleveland in the ECF.

I like to dip my feet in toilet water & smell them.

any news on Nance???

 

He's going to get an MRI today.

 

Consensus is that he will most likely be out for some time. How long is the question.

Read some really knee jerk comments or just jerk ones, first we are not going to the playoffs without a crowdfunding to buy tickets. As said we aren't there yet. Walton is doing a great job but players have to play. Did someone say defense?Never heard of it in the fourth quarter. Relax and be glad we have a team you could be in Seattle.
