This is stupid.


Not a huge deal. You don’t beat a team like the magic with half effort. This team will win 30-35 games based entirely that they’ll play every game with maximum effort

Beas wasn't the reason for the comeback though. I man it was within 10 with 4:30 left. Just seems like a awful waste.


But who do you put in?

Starter McGee?
Old chandler?

If the towel is thrown they aren’t putting those guys in

My point is he was better at chasing around shooters than they were in this game

It was actually when they took lonzo out and put KCP and hart in that they started pounding the lakers into the ground

 

I saw Ingram getting beat constantly as well when I started watching. I'll take your word on the Hart and KCP. I saw Hart getting torched by Augustin as well, so I can absolutely see that.

 

The Lakers don't have any good options at SG then I guess.

Lebron on Vucevic. That makes the most sense.

Lonzo needs to play better moving forward if rondo is hurt. His defense was pretty good first half. But his offense can’t be nonexistent

And kuzma just needs to show up period

Why? Its a 10 point game with plenty of time left and the momentum.

Not a huge deal, but as horrible as this team played there was a chance to win the game there at the end. Not bumping the Fire Luke thread over this, but you’d like to see them to try to steal one considering tomorrow will be tough and we could be looking at an 0-2 start to the road trip.

My guess is Shaw or Luke would ask Bron if he wants to give it another go. Much like the Toronto situation. Bron would’ve been nice, but I think even Chandler could’ve given more than Beas there.

Because I think they knew it was a loss and wanted to not waste he energy

I’m not going to sit here and say I agree

I’m just saying that’s what I saw. What I saw was kinda what I said earlier in the thread, it’s one of those games if you don’t go up by 20 you’ll lose by 20

I saw it early

Lakers gave big effort and were up by 8, as soon as that went away and didn’t blow up to a 20 point lead they completely backed off

It’s common in the nba

I think Luke knew it was a loss and saw no point in pushing the guys so early in the season on the first night of a back to back

Like I said I don’t necessarily agree with it but that’s what I saw

They could be 0-2 tomorrow, or they could win, who knows. I think they decided to look towards tomorrow personally. Doesn’t mean they’ll win because they rested their starters in the 4th but I just know that’s what they did

Yo everybody knows more than the coach huh? Seat yourself they have a fine coach, the players need to play harder on D and stop or limit turnovers or they’ll call us the Bakers lol!

Watched the game in a bar with some real life friends, all die hard Lakers fans i must say we can't win any game against no one in this league playing like we did for the majority of the 1st half and all the 3rd quarter, sloppy ass basketball, barely any defense and most important zero effort, you can see they didn't came prepared for this game by just looking at them moving on the floor, this is just unacceptable in my opinion, it feels like some players who haven't proved nothing in this league walk on the floor like they are some kind of superstars allready when they aren't and for the ones on this forum saying Lonzo needs more minutes, camon man, i gave the benefit of the doubt until now but enough is enough 28 minutes 0 points, 5 assists 4 rebounds and now some of you, Ball defenders will say ah but he defended well, where? how many times this game [expletive]ing DJ Augustin owned him and lonzo have physical advantage against him, i am not saying we lost because of him all team played pretty bad but Ball needs to play a LOT BETTER if he wants to play more minutes for what he brings to the table 20 minutes its too much.

Yall think we a great team? We are good. Good teams dont always win on the road.

Also stop living in the past.
Orlando is not a joke team.
Bron aint the best player in the league anymore.

Stop living in the past carries a ton of weight when it comes from a guy who stans for Kobe so hard that he can contort each and every post into something about LeBron not being the best in the league. Things change, but BBIQ will always be the biggest drooler on this message board.

Some can't grasp the concept of Father Time being undefeated.  Watch Lebron Play, he is relying on pure strength to get to the basket.  Players are starting to beat him to the spot because he is getting slower.  But let's keep thinking Lebron will lead us to a title 2 or 3 years form now....
