Done With December... The Lakers would close this month with one more last tough opponent -- the Dallas Mavericks, who gave the Lakers a thumping last time they faced in Staples.

Tonight would be a different story.

The Lakers held the Mavs to 43 points in the first half (their lowest total this season) on just 30% shooting. (The Mavs had scored 141 in the night before.)

This game had a much different feel to it. The Lakers were in control most of the night.

Down the stretch, both teams looked tired on the second night of the back-to-back. This became an advantage for the Lakers as they focused on getting into the paint for scores, while the Mavs let it fly from three. So when they both got tired, it was the Lakers making mental mistakes, but the Mavs consistently clanking away at threes in that fourth quarter.

The Lakers were able to close them out easily and take the 108-95 win.

The Lakers went 9-5 in December. If they didn’t have to deal with some bumps and bruises to their superstars, they could have done better. Still, that’s a strong record with all the tough teams they played and the number of road games. Now, they can get more time at home and more time in practice to improve.

“Definitely pleased with how we performed and on to 2020,” Vogel said.


LeBron -- -- He picked up his 9,000th assist in this game (No. 9 all time). He was setting the table early. He found AD on the two-man game for a dunk, found him again with the full-court pass. He had a nice lob to Dwight on an ATO play, another to Dwight slipping a pass between two defenders as he posted up, then another lob pass to Dwight after looking off the D. He’d finish the first half with 7 assists (and just 5 points on 1-5 shooting). His only make was on his first attempt of the game, a baseline jumper on iso. Lakers actually played pretty well without him in the first half (a +10), which is good to see as we’ve generally been sub par. Not a big shooting/scoring night as he scored just 13, but he’s had 29 assists with 3 turnovers the last two games by adding another 13 tonight. LeBron said some of the difference has been playing at a much faster pace. “His pace the last two nights has been outstanding,” Vogel said. Vogel also mentioned that “we did a much better job the last two nights just making sure we’re living in the paint.” (Flashback to the Clippers game where LeBron chucked a dozen threes.) Defensively, he had a couple of nice steals. But Lakers couldn’t get separation from the Mavs in the third quarter because we had LeBron “covering” Barea for a stretch. We gave up back-to-back open threes to him with LeBron just not moving at all on the court. Vogel called a timeout to figure that lineup out. He turns 35 and said it will be a low key celebration. He added that his 21st birthday party was a big one...and so would 40. The Stats: He scored 13 points on 3-10 shooting (2-4 from three, 5-6 from the line) to go with 6 boards, 13 assists, 2 steals, 2 turnovers and 2 fouls in 34 minutes. He was a +5.

Davis -- -- He had a few dunks early on (long LeBron pass for one, two-man game with LBJ for another, follow dunk on Rondo’s missed drive), but he also picked up two fouls in the quarter. He wouldn’t pick up another for the rest of the game. He was a +10 to lead the Lakers in the first half. We started off the second half with another dunk on the two-man sequence with LeBron. He’d score yet another dunk off the leakout and long pass (such great hands on those passes). Then he’d scratch out a couple more scores. He’d lead the Lakers with 9 boards, which was much needed (the Mavs have better rebounding numbers on the season than us). His best play of the night was stretching out to steal a pass, pushing it up court and then spotting Dwight for the lob. Few guys his size who can do that combination of things. The Stats: He scored 23 points on 8-12 shooting (0-1 from three, 7-9 from the line) to go with 9 boards, 4 assists, 2 steals, 1 block, 4 turnovers and 2 fouls in 36 minutes. He was a +16.

Green -- -- Foul-prone first half, picking up three fouls. You could also blame him for one of AD’s first quarter fouls, as well. He was ushering guys to the hoop at times. It’s one thing to do that off a screen, but just taking a bad angle with lazy transition D is another. He’d sink a couple of threes and score a couple more hoops when left wide open in the paint. Decent scoring, but it was actually pretty quiet. The Stats: He scored 10 points on 4-7 shooting (2-4 from three) to go with 2 boards, 2 assists, 2 steals and 4 fouls in 22 minutes. He was a +12.

McGee -- -- Better night from McGee than last night. He led the team with 3 blocked shots. You can see those coming when guys try to get past him to the rim. He just eats shots up. Offensively, we started the game with our set play where he flashes weak to strong to take the pass and hit the easy one in the paint. LeBron found him a few times for scores. Once as McGee tracked down a guard for a block, then changed ends for the dunk. Another And-1 layup in the second half as LeBron bounced an interior pass to him. Then LeBron hit him with a drop pass on the roll for another dunk. Throw in a sweeping hook from McGee and you get the nice scoring night. We did a good job getting the ball to our bigs at the rim tonight. The Stats: He scored 11 points on 5-6 shooting (1-1 from the line) to go with 5 boards (3 offensive), 1 assist, 3 blocks and 1 foul in 16 minutes. He was a +6.

Bradley -- -- He sat midway through the third with his fifth foul. He started the season off with some foul prone ball, but then cleaned it up. A little bit of that tonight again. His biggest contribution, however, might have just been wearing on Doncic. Facing a relentless defender or two on the second night of the back to back, Luka seemed to fade away. Those tired legs couldn’t hit a three. Bradley made one of his tonight, actually getting some good legs into it, which has been an issue with all those short threes he’s been missing. His other bucket came cutting baseline off McGee’s offensive board and McGee found him for the layup. The Stats: He scored 5 points on 2-6 shooting (1-2 from three) to go with 2 steals, 3 turnovers and 5 fouls in 23 minutes. He was a +8.

Caldwell-Pope -- -- Strong game start to finish with 19 points in 25 minutes. He was hitting the three and getting to the line off hustle in transition. He’d score 9 of his points in the first half, but kept it rolling in the second half. He’d sink a couple of threes in the fourth to give us some much needed scoring. We also ran a couple curl plays just for him as well as the strong handoff play off those stagger screens. All stuff he’s comfortable doing and all stuff that plays to his strengths. “I feel good. I feel like I’m in a great rhythm. My mind is clear,” Kenny said. I think that last part is key for him and I’ve always mentioned it. His struggles half the time are because he’s got too much going on in his head (learn new systems, plays, teammates, etc.). Once he gets into a comfort zone as the season goes along, he has played much, much better. Hopefully, we can get him carrying this kind of play right into the playoffs where he can step up big. He’s really becoming a key player for the team. Glad to see him get on track on the bench like this. I’m looking forward to when he comes in the games, and his teammates are looking for him on court. A key moment in this one: Refs called a bogus tech on KCP for trying to free up his arm on an arm lock off a screen. This was one of those plays that could fire up one of the two teams. KCP responded immediately with a steal on that possession, drawing a push-off foul on the next stand, then swatting a sideline three on the next. The Lakers pushed the lead to 15 heading into the fourth. That’s how you do it. The Stats: He scored 19 points on 5-9 shooting (4-5 from three, 5-6 from the line) to go with 3 boards, 2 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, 3 turnovers and 3 fouls in 25 minutes. He was a +5.

Kuzma -- -- Awful game. He couldn’t hit anything in the first half, going 0-5. He didn’t look particularly comfortable on anything moving to the hoop. In the second half, he had a wide open layup that he opted to try to hit a floater instead of finishing off glass and he choked that. Then he missed an iso runner and followed that up by giving up an And-1 on the other end. He also threw an outlet away to erase what would have been a Laker two-on-one. We want him to forget this one and focus on the last few. He had some nice momentum going until tonight. The Stats: He didn’t score on 0-7 shooting (0-2 from three) to go with 5 boards, 1 steal, 1 turnover and 3 fouls in 26 minutes. He was a +2.

Caruso -- -- He padded his team-leading +/- in the month of December by adding another +12 game to it tonight. The three ball wasn’t there tonight. He had been shooting it well prior to this game. He just looked a bit rushed on all his attempts tonight. He’s been aggressive attacking lately and we saw some of that again tonight. A couple nice drives in the first half, one for a layup, another to set up Dwight for a dunk after he pulled his man over. Still, we played him just 7 minutes (and he was a +9). More limited action in the second half. I do like that we brought in our deep bench to rest him in the final minute. A little respect there from the coach. When you look at his strengths, you have to watch both how he competes on the defensive end and how well he rotates off ball. He makes the team much, much better doing all that little stuff. The Stats: He scored 6 points on 2-6 shooting (0-3 from three, 2-2 from the line) to go with 1 board, 2 assists

Howard -- -- Love the first half. He had dunk after dunk after dunk. Multiple lob passes from teammates (some great passes, but Dwight is definitely getting up there, too). Throw in some interior passes for more dunks and a few trips to the line and you have a team-high 15 points on 6-6 shooting to lead the team in the first half. He was also getting into it a little with Boban, slapping hands away from him and being a little antagonistic. Impact first half, pretty quiet second half as we kind of coasted in the fourth. The Stats: He scored 15 points on 6-7 shooting (3-4 from the line) to go with 3 boards, 1 steal, 1 block and 1 foul in 19 minutes. He was a +3.

Rondo -- -- Man, his first three attempt in this game was a mess, hitting glass first on the brick. Not a good sign. He avoided that the rest of the game. Some nice attacks off the dribble to finish at the rim (or even a miss that allowed AD to clean up the dribble penetration). One benefit of having KCP on the bench is that he does help Rondo. Rondo hit him with a swing pass for a three and also found him curling for a layup. The Stats: He scored 4 points on 2-5 shooting (0-1 from three) to go with 3 boards, 4 assists, 1 block, 2 turnovers and no fouls in 18 minutes. He was a +5.

Daniels -- --He came in for the final minute and hit a fade on iso. Overall, much better December for him than November. The coaches have given him some relatively consistent run for as deep in the rotation as he is and he’s started to turn things around. The Stats: He scored 2 points on 1-1 shooting in 1 minute. He was a -3.

Cook -- -- He missed as three in the final minute. December didn’t really go well for him. And right now if we were dropping someone from the roster to pick up another player at some point, Cook seems to be in that hot seat. The Stats: He didn’t score on 0-1 shooting in 1 minute. He was a -3.

Dudley -- -- In for garbage time, which he mentioned on Twitter he was glad to play whatever role was needed. The Stats: He had 2 boards in 1 minute and was a -3.

Vogel -- -- Key Moment: That might have come when Tim Hardaway Jr. came up hobbled after a dunk on the break. He grabbed his hammy and was done for the night. The Lakers pretty much controlled the game all night. Later, getting the fifth foul on Porzingis in the third quarter and the Mavs were down two key players.

Key Substitution: Anytime we subbed in KCP. He was getting it done on both ends. Bradley and Green were foul-prone and maybe a step slow at times.

Key Stat: Let’s go with the three shooting. The Mavs went 13-43 while the Lakers made 9-23...a difference of 20 attempts but only 4 more makes for the Mavs. Meanwhile, the Lakers had a 54-32 advantage on points in the paint. The Lakers got back to playing to their strengths.

Great post... Do you think you will ever bring back The Four Horseman intros? I loved those back in the Kobe / Gasol championship days

KCP definitely looked in rythm last night. Loved how he responded after the tech call. If he and Kuz ever both get hot in the same game...

54-32 + 18 points in the paint
Lakers took just 23 three pointers.

This is the recipe for Lakers success.

I watched this game with focus on whether we would be a penetration team, or a settle team. Like the Portland game, we continued to be a penetration team. Until the mid-4th when the team began to play sloppy and coast, the Lakers were using the three elements of ball penetration I wanted to see. Dribble penetration. We saw this with Lebron, Rondo, Caruso, KCP and even Bradley. Pass penetration to find a player on the move - mostly from Lebron, a little from Rondo. A lot of action for our bigs this way, Dwight feasted. Post ups from Lebron, AD.

I could be off by a bit, but I think I observed that in 80% of our sets, if not more, we would first use some form of penetration. Even Lebron, he did not have a good shooting-scoring night but he was constantly getting into deep inside the opposing D before making a play. Can not stress enough the importance of this. Rondo with some nice layups and work in this one as well.

Defensively I think we were fortunate that we caught Dallas on a night where their 3 point shot was off, but we also contested very well. We did not let Luka get any easy shots off, we did not allow them to just spot up from 3 right away, and forced them to keep moving the ball. I know Carlisle does not believe in Porzingis playing in the paint like he did with the Knicks, but Dallas is doing teams a huge favor by using Porzingis the way they are. They have to utilize his size advantage somehow with some catches close to the basket, which we do with AD and our bigs. To have a guy that talented and to have him only stay way out at the 3 point line most of the night, a bit nonsensical to me. Anyway even those tactics have been killing teams with their #1 rated O, and we did a good job of contesting.

Season match ups against the top teams in the league

0-1 Bucks
1-1 Denver (1 loss without Lebron)
2-0 Miami
0-2 Clippers
0-1 Raptors
0-1 Pacers (without AD)
2-0 Utah
2-1 Dallas

7-7 record against teams who are playing 50+ win basketball. 7-5 with Lebron and AD. Need to keep getting better.

The plays that stick out to me tonight are Kuzma getting a steal and nonchalantly tossing the ball ahead just to be picked off on the other end. And then Luz getting the board, waiving the guards off and bringing it up court himself, dribbling and then attacking without ever once looking around to his teammates. This is the floater you mentioned he missed which turned into him giving up and and-1 on the other end. Smh. The guy just doesn’t play winning hoops.

Thanks DB.

I was happy to see the adjustments Vogel made on Luka. He is their engine. Combination of players (led by AB) helped harass him into a 5 for 14 shooting night and 6 turnovers. They took away a lot of what he likes to do (like skip passes to side corner for wide open 3s). Good to see.

Let's talk about pick and role with Bron and AD. It's the first highlight of this tweet clip https://twitter.com/NBATV/status/1211670779361988613?s=19

It is literally unstoppable mostly because 98% of bigs do NOT have the foot speed to keep up with AD to stop it. But they don't run it much. I guess they are not wanting teams to have too much tape on it - and he's saving it for the playoffs?

I kind of wish it were the staple of their attack. AD, Dwight and Javelle have great foot speed, length and hops. Pick and roll could lead to a lot of easy dunks and-1s and foul trouble for the opposition. There is so much good that could come out of them running variations of that play all game.

Happy with the win on the second night of a back to back to finish off this brutal month.

If I had to nitpick, I would harp on our poor defensive rebounding, but Dallas is a great rebounding team. Our offense also bogged down a bit too much for our liking. This could've been a different ballgame had Hardaway not gotten injured.

I really dislike teams that take so many threes (and Dallas is one of those teams), but if they hit a couple more, the game could've gone another way. They seem to match up quite favourably with us.

Luka was also clearly not right, althouhg neither was LeBron, so I guess that evens out a bit.

Keep on getting better!

Teams that shoot threes in volume will always have a "puncher's chance" against any team, because when their shots are falling, the entire court opens up.

Look at the teams ranked by made three pointers: https://www.teamrankings.com/nba/stat/three-pointers-made-per-game

HOU, DAL, MIL, TOR & MIA are 5 of the top 6 on the list and all are playoff locks.

Meanwhile, NYK, ORL, IND, OKC, GSW & SAS are the bottom 6. None will get a home seed in the playoffs and only two are above .500.

Any team that can hit 20 three pointers is going to be a tough out.

Thanks DB! Been away from the TV for a while during the holidays - I really appreciate the details you include in these T&R's!

9-5 in December. That's a good result considering the schedule.

Becoming less of a fan of Doncic. Great talent who is becoming too Harden for me with his flops. Flopic is becoming a thing, shame.

I wonder what Kobe said to Doncic? My guess is some smack he learned from Sasha Vujacic.

Just to stretch that out a bit further, but I believe emphasizes your point: Expand that from top 6 to top 10 and you get teams like Washington, Chicago, and Brooklyn. And if anyone wonders how an upset gets pulled, just take a peek at the 3's tossed up.

In Bottom third 3's made in the league (currently playoff teams): Philly, Denver, OKC, San Antonio [dead last, although their hold on the 8th spot is by the slimmest of margins], Indiana, and your Los Angeles Lakers.

Predicted a 10-4 December, but was gonna be happy with 9-5, and they did it. Am slightly annoyed they did not pull out the Indiana game, and felt they just shot themselves out of the Clipper game getting 3 happy.

But 26-7 is a very nice start to the season.
