Well you don't play a lineup like that with IT in it.  IT is an elite 6th man role player type.  You have to have an elite defense and proper personnel to get away with him full time.  You can still be good though.  Boston managed to pull it off. 

 

Our switching screens strategy is [expletive]ed at that point. What would you do when teams put IT and Kuzma in the PnR?

When I coached, I would gameplan around that.  Use aggressive traps on the ball when they try to P&R with IT.  Drop defenders into the driving lanes.  Go zone every now and again to force them to switch their play.   Use IT's speed and let him gamble in that situation.  Gotta anticipate where the ball could and will go and put a LOT of pressure on the passer.

 

It's not easy but it's also not impossible.

Similar to what Boston did actually, I don't think we're equipped to be as aggressive.

I could be petty and ask about someone's "rap career", but I won't...moving on...

 

Lakers have a tough stretch coming up.  1 home game for the rest of the month.  1 home game in the next 7.  Hopefully, IT gets back to form and helps us make noise and at least get close to the playoffs.  It will do a lot to sell Free Agents this summer.

Yes because becoming an AAU coach is almost IMPOSSIBLE, right?  LOL.  You need to let go of your petty hate for me.  It's childish.

Taking the fact you have a new player it’s acceptable to have a loss on the road vs a team that’s had our number for some time, that said next game get back on track!

Only 25 games left.  Seems strange to say, coming out of the A-S break.


Don't feed the trolls.

SA has lost 4 in a row and now there's news that Kawhi is out for the season. 

 

Meanwhile, Minny just lost Butler to a torn meniscus which means he's probably out for a while.

 

Both teams could drop in the standings .

Don't think either will fall enough for us to pass them...
