LeBron definitely was in “get everyone else involved” mode tonight and was mostly successful at that, but the Lakers really need him to score a lot, unfortunately, just the way the team is constructed.


It was moreso that lineup, when it was close they had that rondo group for a while, until 3 minutes left and stuff got to 6

It was poorly executed

I think it was fine having lebron take a back seat

Lakers are going to be 4-5 in the last 9 games. Can you guys at least consider that this team might not be that good? Such flaws that the FO just refuses to address.


Seasons are played in 82 game increments, not 9. Stuff happens. Such as key components being hurt and sick. Guys who haven’t played coming back. I wouldn’t worry too much.

Good to see Zubac playing solid 5. Good for 5 depth, with 2 aging 5's. Especially as we go deep into the season

I agree. If it was a game they needed, LeBron could have done his thing and won it. I’d rather have the other guys do their thing. Would be nice to win it, but ultimately it doesn’t matter.

8 3s in a row for Memphis to end the game. Tough to win when a team like the Grizzlies gets that hot.

Can the Lakers still catch up to Phoenix for Zion?

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

Not a big deal, still looking like a championship caliber team, when the hurt players come back everything will be better, on to the next one- signed Sarah Huckabee

Lonzo needs to realize that he can't shoot to save his life, I mean it has been embarrassing. He should stick to play good D, move the ball and work to get better at going to the rim. Lets face it, he's a terrible shooter and in some nights he seems to know that.

The Lakers are only going to be 1.5 games up on the 9th place team, who has the tiebreaker (Spurs). These last 2 games were the easier part of the tough 7 game stretch the Lakers are on.

 

The Lakers are in trouble. They'll rue this awful stretch when they face tougher teams and are fighting for a playoff spot at the end of the season.

The grizzlies are the most difficult team in the league to beat when they are shooting the 3 well. It happens.

I will bet you any amount you want that they not only make the playoffs but that they advance past the first round. You are a master of panic.

positive to take from this game.

 

Zu - solid, caught and finish the games from bron and kuzma passes.

 

kuzma - passing was solid and his didnt force the game 

 

ingram - seems like he had a lot less 20 points but casually and low key got it. if he wasnt benched in the 4th. it would be a different result

 

lebron-quiet and wanted his team to the job and i like what he did

 

zo- passing and defense were excellent. his shooting was awful and cost us the game.

And you guys will find excuses and brush off every issue this team has, regardless of happens in games.

 

I constantly see issues with this team on the perimeter and with their own shooting. I think it's pretty obvious. They're among the worst 3pt and FT shooting teams in the league. Their issues on the perimeter defensively have been pretty prevalent too.

 

I don't want to be negative. I promise I don't. I just see the same issues this team has over and over again. I think I'm just getting tired of it, so I get angrier. I knew that the Lakers would have issues with shooting. They were bad last year and added no shooting in the off-season. It's a really dumb thing to overlook by the front office.
