The Lakers have managed to do that all on their own.

This is one of the laziest, lowest energy, most unenthusiastic young teams I've seen in 35 years of watching the NBA.

 

Is there any passion for the game, winning, or doing your best on this Laker team?

 

Byron Scott has got to be laughing his ass off watching this.

This is beyond sad, even the worse team in west without their star on road outplays the lakers. Smh

Once again this team has shown no lessons learned, nothing new added to their game, no desire to improve upon their previous mistakes.  Pitiful.

 

Now you know why there are no "should wins" with this Laker team. 

 

I feel bad for season ticket holders that are sitting through this kind of lackadaisical effort night in and night out.

Russell , seriously?  You do an unnecessary behind the back fake that fakes out nobody and throws you off of making a standard layup.

Players should just throw in the white towel now since they stopped playing in the 3rd

There is NO EXCUSE for this kind of laziness from a young team.  People will throw all sorts of excuses out there (per usual), but this kind of careless and sleepy play is an abomination.

I actually 100% agree.

Pathetic showing.

We can't win when our opponent has made at least 13 3's. We don't shoot well enough to overcome that and haven't done so tonight. Another frustrating 3rd quarter put us in quite the pickle. I'm starting to rethink my 30 win prediction right about now even though they're on pace for 28 or so. This month has been pretty miserable.

Maybe the Lakers should think about defending the perimeter - hell I don't know.  Most of their threes have been completely uncontested.

 

This is why I said 25-57.  I see nothing but the absolute minimal improvement in wins this year.  No player on this team (outside of Nance) shows me much to get excited about.  Ingram has flashes, but I'm still not super impressed.  Two #2 picks out there and both play like the NBA should be falling at their feet.  Vet free agents that have to ride the pine in crunch time and can't play defense or do what they were hired to do (outside of Williams).

 

The Lakers have no heart.  I can't abide by that.

Was gonna say in the first quarter that dallas has been shooting too many opens 3s. And in the 3rd everything is going in. To think adjustments and awareness was mentioned at the half(or maybe it was but no awareness from players) either way, bad job overall by them and a frustrating game overall

Glad to hear the fans boo.

 

This team doesn't deserve positive support from people spending their hard-earned money to watch their subpar efforts.

 

This is why wins and losses DO matter.  I don't care what development excuse you want to use, winning matters.  You don't play the game to just play.  This is professional ball, you're getting paid EXTREMELY well to play hard and win at every turn you possibly can.  And when teams (especially young teams) start losing in bunches it affects their mindset and their game.  To go into a season telling people you don't care about the wins or its second priority sets a bad precedent for everyone.

Good! Let them implode and figure out themselves. Each one of them is accountable and someone needs to ssay something
