It’s still a win against a professional basketball team. It feels bad because of the last 3 minutes but it should not have been close. The Lakers led the entire game and were comfortable most of the game and messed around at the end and never really buried the mavs despite being up double digits nearly the entire game. It’s still a win.

If some fans want to talk about good losses, we can talk about bad wins. Wow, that offered absolutely no confidence in this team going forward. I can't believe they couldn't close out a bad team with that kind of lead.

 

One unsettling thing nobody has talked about is that we're getting uncharacteristically good play from McGee, and the Lakers still look like an awful team. Imagine how bad the Lakers would be if he wasn't playing so well. He's definitely not going to play at that level the entire season.

Many Lakers played well tonight, and McGee can put up good numbers, he has played well most of his career. They need a clear cut second option. It looks like it’s going to be BI at points, but he is young and makes a lot of very bad plays to go along with his moments of looking great offensively. They have been atrocious in clutch time the entire season. If they can shore up that, they have minimum two more wins this season already. It’s going to take some development.

So I guess we agree that LeBron is coaching the Lakers... Because those ugly ass isos on the last minute were never a sure thing last season. I mean, every [expletive]ing game man, always the same awful clock eating isos that aren't effective at all 🤦🏻‍♂️

I understand why they are doing it, if it’s successful it eats clock and demoralizes your opponent. It just isn’t working well.

McGee can put up good numbers, he has played well most of his career.

 

I don't think he's ever been as bad as Shaq has tried to make him out to be, but really?

 

Not to be mean, but I'm curious as to how you can think this. He was a situational player in Golden State. He's averaged around 10 minutes a game the last 5 seasons before this one. From as far as I can remember, he's been a situational player/bench-warmer.

He has always played well and had impacts on games in the minutes that he has been allotted. He is just getting way more minutes as a laker.

To the extent that he could score inside, rebound, and protect the rim as well as he has? I honestly haven't that from him before this season. And, I think he would've gotten a lot more minutes even on the Warriors if he could have.

Awful win. Not sure why people are blaming coaching when Lebron is just taking the ball and holding it possession after possession. Luke never did that any other season and I doubt he is doing it here.
