I hope they sit LeBron and AD actually. Good game for them to sit and great experience / confidence booster for everyone.

Exactly what i am thinking, keep them out until they lose a game plus both are sick/injured so no need to force those guys to play at this time

I’m digging kuzma’s turn around fade away (although i don’t like seeing it often since it’s a difficult shot). He has good mentor.

Caruso needs more run. Comes in and gets a block and makes a mid rangers within 20 seconds.

Lakers will be fine, just playing soft right now.

 

Looks like they're getting that edge back.  Sometimes those big players come back and the edge goes away when you defer to them.  The bench guys have to maintain that urgency they had when the big dogs come back into the fold.

 

They'll get there. Veterans know how.

Pulling away. A good bench run here could seal it early.

One thing that i want to point out is that the players are constantly moving without the ball for the past few games. It’s so beautiful to watch.

It's actual basketball with this team, not a constant three point shooting contest with no defense.

 

Vogel has done a helluva job instilling this team with tough-minded defense and a no easy basket attitude.  And the team has bought in without pushing back, throwing tantrums or questioning.  Add to that a team that seems like they genuinely enjoy playing the game together, and this team is something special.

 

As a comparison:

 

The '86-'87 Lakers were 32/8

The '87-'88 Lakers were 32/8

The '99-'00 Lakers were 33/7

The '00-'01 Lakers were 29/11

The '01-'02 Lakers were 29/11

The '08-'09 Lakers were 32/8

The '09-'10 Lakers were 31/9

 

This team, obviously 33-7 at game 40 of the season.  Let's keep it rolling.

Caruso has some sneaky speed. looks to me like he can get past his defender if he really wants to.
