Didn’t get a chance to watch this one, but I’m reading the defense was poor tonight.

I hope it’s not a pattern because that Indiana game down the stretch was a little problematic too. I know Warren was hot, but usually the Lakers lock down better than they showed. Something to keep an eye on.

Most likely it’s just because it’s not the playoffs, but hoping AB missing hasn’t ruined the defensive chemistry and rotations.


It's people overreacting imo. There defense took a huge step up in the final 2 minutes and caused several turnovers and misses. There bench was also on complete fire which I believe the Lakers would have won easily had they brought the starters back in. It was borderline all star game level for a lot of the 4th and for a team that needed to see some shots go down I think it did way more good then bad.

I'm sure the Lakers will take it more serious but as a fan im not too worried at all. This is the exact kind of offensive game I was hoping to see them have before the Playoffs so i'm happy.

Remember, Kuz is a rhythm player. If he doesn't get minutes he loses his rhythm and confidence. If he misses his first shots his game is usually off. NO wanted him included in the Davis deal. Don't know if we could have made it without BI in it. Wish we could have kept BI.

I was honestly surprised by the last play. Fully expected that to be a shot by James or Davis. If anything, hopefully it gives Kuzma more of a confidence boost.
