Should have been out there the rest of the fourth.

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

I also liked the "free timeout" the Suns got to setup and run their last play. The refs manufactured a BS review when Lonzo poked the ball away at the end.

Then he would have taken time from Nance or Lopez.

Luke finally wised up and realized the benefit of playing a long perimeter defender like Brewer and siccing him on Booker. Brewer has been great.

Just tell him it's not ok to try to attack the teeth of the defence every single time and you are set with your wing defender :D

Ingram just doesn't seem to have the "it" factor. He's talented....but chokes under pressure.


Well the hope is that lonzo can have the it factor. If Ingram can just realize that talent and get more confident that'd be enough

I think luke came forward with a more sensible lineup and it made a difference with the way players fit on the floor

We wasted so much money on Deng when we could have had a player like Brewer for nothing lol. Brewer's offense stinks but he plays with so much energy/effort.

He also was not stubborn with his lineups and reacted quickly when the team needed a certain player. First game was the opposite. I need to see more from Walton before i am talking positively about him. I think my expectations were just very high about him.

Blame Mitch and Jim for the Deng debacle.  Luckily that regime is a memory now.

Luke calmed some of my fears. He seemed very hesitant to play kuzma and was really letting Clarkson and randle just do what ever they wanted all preseason and last game(Clarkson not so much last game).

This game Clarkson was used perfectly as a scorer who isn't allowed to stop the ball. He needs to either attack or move the ball and so far he has been excellent at it. He will have a long and great career if he continues that.

Kuzma got the burn and time with lonzo that he should get and we got 6/7 and 15 point in return. Kuzma is legit and I think Luke has realized that we can't win unless this guy is getting PT. Also noticed he played with Zo a lot more which looked good. That late game lock down on booker was really impressive.

Randle was benched for the most part. Luke gave him another chance and he blew it. Ball hogged the 1st half and just forced shots. Then Luke gave him another chance in the 2nd and showed very little energy. I think his tenure as a Laker is soon to be over. He doesn't want to be here and we have players to replace him. I was a huge fan of him and it's sad that it's come to this but it's just not a good fit.

Defense still looks bad which is still a big concern. KCP will help but not nearly enough imo. Lakers gotta play how brewer did and just be pesky defenders that frustrate teams. It pumps the team up and is the best way to start runs.

Glad we got the win but it's just the suns. Got to play much better Sunday.
