Am I the only who feels extremely confident whenever LeBron attempts a 30+ footer? Seems like it usually goes in.

Another carry by Lebron. He's buying us time for our core to get better. Still searching for that "consistent" 2nd scorer. Good game!

Great comeback, I thought Chandler, Lebron and Ball were great tonight.

could you guys imagine if this team could actually hit FTs?


Magic needs to find the best shooting coach and pay him whatever he wants. Our young guys all struggle.

Engelland might be available next year when (if) Pop retires

It's important for our team to hit our open 3's. We were down in the first half cause we couldn't hit, we're up now cause we can. We're above 35% now

Hart in is an important reason for that


Teams don't make open threes against them so even shooting mediocre from out there is enough to get it done. Statistically, the Spurs are one of the best three point shooting teams in the league but the Lakers just left them open anyway and watched them shoot 25%

amazed that Kuz didn't shoot there...

Would you believe he's up to 5 assists in this game?

He's been doing that a lot better the last 5 games or so...
but, it sometimes looks like it's an internal battle for him - a little voice screaming shoot shoot shoot
LOL

The internal struggle is real

Lonzo is my guy, but his ft shooting is ridiculous. His dad should be jailed for not teaching him how to shoot.


Lol yup.

This game is a good example of why we shouldn't trade our depth.

Rondo hurt, Ingram hurt, Hart in foul trouble... no problem

If we have three stars and no bench... one gets hurt or in foul trouble... that's it.


I have two words for you

LeBron James

i feel like we are playing better than expected and while teams like Houston and GS are playing poorly we are still barely the 5th seed.

LeBron carried us all right.

Still, there was some help. Refs kneecapped Hart for most of the game, but couldn't contain him at the end. Talk about some CLUTCH 3's!!!!!!

KCP - great job early on swinging momentum back after BI went down.

Kuz - nice 2 man game late with LeBron

Chandler - nice game down low

Lonzo - defense, and a nice 3 late

Come back soon Rondo!

even though BI may be hurt

I think Ball Hart Lebron Kuz Mcgee will allow us to get some better early starts

To be honest it's not really so much from 3, it's just in general from the floor. At 3 quarter time they were shooting 43% from the floor and were down, and at the end of the game we finished at over 47%. Spurs percentage never changed at 45%. It's just usually we get a lot of space from 3 and so we attempt a lot from 3 and it's so frustrating watching them constant bricks xD

At 3 quarter time of our top 4 scorers, 3 of them were shooting well below 50% (MAKE YOUR LAYUPS LONZO xD)

Yep. Right now I feel more confident in that than I do with his free throw shooting. lol
