Lol what an ass


Yeah that taco chant might just poke some already bruised egos.

Game was over. Kinda makes me wish we had put Kuzma in for a run at 50.

Final word on this game? Detroit got spanked hard by a Lebron-less Laker squad. That's gotta hurt.

Damn the Orlando Magic. They kick our butts twice, then they get their asses handed to them by the Jazz, King’s, Clippers, and Timberwolves.


And both games we bulldozed them first quarter.

We made Clifford look like a damn genius those 2 games.

Speaking of Clifford, I’m shocked he’s not on the hot-seat, Orlando is to talented to be 17-24.

Nice to see Kuz cheering on Beas and not chasing the fiddy, based on his post-game interview.

That was a good interview. 30th birthday for Beaz, happy for him. Kuz is a class act.

Lol how lame are the Pistons - their goal in life was to prevent tacos.


I would hope the Lakers do the exact same thing if any opponent has a dorky promotion about rubbing the other teams face in a loss.

I really wanted to destroy everything Clippers old or new this season with Lebron.

Lost to Clippers once. No Lebron. 3 more matchups left.

We failed getting Revenge on CP3 twice already.
Two more games against Houston.

We destroyed Deandre 3 times already. 1 more matchup.

We destroyed Blake tonight. Gotta do it one more time in Detroit.

I mean Vuc is their best player and nobody comes close after that.

They are still waiting for Gordon to take that next step for how many years now?

We had problems against them because we like to score in the pain and they had Isaac and Bamba waiting for us.

Those are two guys who aren't playing, what do they have to do with giving Lonzo a compliment?

He averaged 12 boards his rookie year, 11 his 2nd year, then never double digits again. Can't explain it other than him realizing he's made it. He's the real deal in the NBA. Bank account is fat, and after that contentment, you become less hungry.

The Lakers should have gathered the Pistons and huddle after the game, and give them a motivational speech. "Bring it in, lets hug it out. Let bygones be bygones. Now go beat the Queens!"

Gotta wonder....would Detroit trade Griffin for Kuzma if salaries were the same? Gotta think they would (If they could get out from his contract, it would be a slam dunk trade for them if the lakers would accept, which they wouldn’t)

Griffin looks like just another role player. Hardly a max guy.

That was a hell of an entertaining game. I selfishly wanted Kuz back in to get 50 but once I saw Beas out there hustling I was content with the move.

Just a nice win, solid effort. I thought Detroit's bigs were going to kill them and they made them a non-factor.

I just had a feeling once I saw Hart dancing once he realized the ESPN cameras were on him pregame.

Griffin flail, exaggerate and flop at any contact just like Harden but without getting the call lol.

Blake isn't the problem, I dont think Detroit would have more than a couple wins without him. It was funny and sad to see Blake getting swarmed with double teams while the Lakers didn't even bother to guard anyone else on the team. Drummond was easily stripped or blocked anytime he attacked and the rest of the team was unable to make an uncontested shot from any distance. That team is a mess.

Yup. They were so slow to take advantage of the double teams.

The Lakers would double team and still rotate effectively because of how slow the pistons looked in reading the floor.

They should be better, IMO, so I'd have to blame coaching I suppose.

They are really missing a legitimate wing.
