Yeah, they owned us last game too.

Actually they didn't- we beat them by 9


You're so great at recognizing obvious sarcasm.

Was it obvious? You should write for Saturday Night Live with all that wit.

That lost is on Lebron, Mcgee, and Vogel. Horrible shooting night and not sure why Vogel put McGe as a closer there?.... There’s a reason McGee never closed when he was with the Warriors.


Lebron had 18 assists. I know he had an off night including a missed FT and 3 to tie it down late but he is also the one that hit a clutch 3 in the first place.

The loss isn't on Lebron.


His part if the reason we lost not singling him out. Best player in the team just horrible shooting night. He will tell you himself it’s his fault.

6/17 shooting? I kind of wished he had 19 assist


You expect him to have a good shooting game every damn time? Kobe had plenty of 6/17 games or worse. It happens. Stars show up in different areas on off nights and Lebron did that. McGee with his other worldly horrible defense lost us the game.

Yeah, if Kobe has a 6/17 night, he was to be blamed for that game

classic case of box score bron, the loss was on him. i watched the game


Mmm did you also see him him the clutch 3 down the stretch or does it not fit the narrative. Being 1/2 from deep down the stretch isn't bad if you ask me...

Anyway, the game wasn't lost in the 4th...It was lost when we went down 20 in the 2nd quarter, and again in the 3rd quarter. You can't expect to just dig yourselves out of holes whenever you feel like it.

Lakers came back from down 20 twice. Being down by 20 twice against ORL, you don't really deserve to win.

i love when the "lebron had x assists" argument comes in

its not like the team is completely constructed around him to have all the assists

Interesting, what about the previous 5 misses?

Ya’ll should be blaming Kuzma for the loss....He was a starter...played 27 minutes and only had 4 freaking points.

Kuzma=Inconsistancy

Trade his ass for someone who can put up the numbers on a nightly basis.

mmm i did see that i also saw him get hung on the rim, give half ass defensive effort all night and miss his usual freethrows. but sure , he had 18 assists as the only playmaker on the roster. woo hoo! im not hating on bron im simply calling it what it is.

Welp, better buckle up for this coming road trip. Utah is in the rear window and there's a lot of tough games ahead.

Vogel took out Dwight because he was fouling unnecessarily and constantly bit@hing to the refs.

Yeah, but he rotates faster on defense, and I can tell you vuecivic probably couldn’t get that shot off if Dwight was guarding him, at least not a wide open one. Same for the layup by fultz, and also the dunk by Gordon

99-95 with lead and Cook shoots a three on that break. That was game for us if he made it. When you take a bad shot like that, you have to make it. He was responsible for us getting back in the game, so I can't be too mad.

This. They came back down by 20 in 2nd quarter to get within 4 as the 3rd began, only to watch the magic clown them for a few minutes and go up by 21 again.

They then fought and clawed back and got up by 4...and gas basically ran out. Thats alot of effort especially against a team that makes you work for buckets like orlando.

Coming back not just once but twice vs big leads is challenging.

I will say this tho. The biggest difference was FT...magic won cuz of that and i felt orlando got away with alot of smacking on d

I had no issues with that, he had the hot hand, and it was a broken play which he has no momentum, and Lebron wasn’t trailing for the monster dunk

You have to trust your guys and let them play through it... Dwight has earned it too.

It's partly KCPs fault who immediately gives his man the baseline. When he's herding Faults baseline, Javale has to hedge to protect baseline. KCP has to man up first and make Vudoo set a pick. It was too easy for Mr. Carry the Ball to whip pass back to Vudoo. Yeah I don't know how to spell his name.
