Osman 5 from 7 from 3

Lebron 14 rebounds, Zo 7 rebounds. Top 2 rebounders. Disappointed in our centers TBH

Ugly win, but I'll take it. WAY too many turnovers. Way too many. The pace/energy was low to start the game, which allowed the Cavs to feel confident, especially when their shooters got hot. They took, and made, lots of tough shots. Lakers could never get any separation, which made this a tighter game than I would have liked.

Luke did a good job realizing that the pick and roll game was killing us, and going small. The Cavs don't have your more traditional big men, so the small ball played to our advantage. Good recognition.

Cavs aren't traditionally big, yet we were getting killed on the offensive boards at times 0.0

Lebron awesome again, McGee awesome again, KCP played well, Lonzo had his best game of the year....his defensive play down the stretch is the reason we won, but he should have dunked that lol.

Except that we were getting killed until he put Javale back in

And let’s be real here: the refs helped us win this game.

So many bad calls in favor of us in the final minutes. Which is very rare but it happened tonight. I guess Adam Silver didn’t want Lebron to be embarrassed on National TV tonight against the worst team in the league.

I’ll take a win anytime but my god, classic case of winning despite awful coaching.

Kuzma has to grow a fire in belly. Screw being a finesse player, develop some nastiness.

I would still fire Luke. This game should not have gone this way.


These are Walton wins. Allow your opponent to get back in the game, win by the skin of your teeth thus have little to build off of said win.


It's called. If we don't have one of the best players in the league playing for us, it would've been a loss.

I think Luke is good for basically negative 10 points each game.

Lonzo as the Lakers 2nd leading scorer. Bizarro land.


I will say, as frustrated as I was with the Lakers lack of aggressiveness and rebounding, Lonzo Ball was everything I hoped he'd be for a while tonight. WOW do I hope he tries to play like this again.

Good to see KCP come through. His FT's were clutch. Also glad to see Zo have a good game.

Cedi Osman is a shooter; boy could we use him.

This should have been a easy win. This Lakers team seems to play to the level of the opponent.

Just 1 consistent 3 point shooter. Just 1. Every game we struggle from the 3 point line, and we have those games, we struggle. We just need a guy who can knock it down regularly

This game was perfect for Cleveland. They played really well, but lost, so tanking operation not jeopardised and Dan Gilbert gives the finger to Lebron
