Makes you feel sorry for all of our bandwagon Boston, generic East Coast douchebags, Pelicans, and Clippers who like to come in here and crow about their teams and how the Lakers suck.

Take this weekend and stuff in your pipe and smoke it haters...

These 2 games set the tone for the rest of the year and gave us the breathing space we needed to prepare for the playoffs. Now when they give AD and Lebron a break they won't be worried about the possibility of the Clippers catching up.

They also proved that it isn't about how to stop Giannis or Kawhi, but how do THEY stop Lebron.

These 2 games weren't just about the W's, but how they played. Their defense was absolutely fantastic and the role players stepped up and delivered on both end of the floor.

Now, they have a 7 game lead in the loss column on the Clippers and they can relax and look for some better play from the rest of the team.


Hit the nail on the head. The DEFENSE is the biggest takeaway, the Clippers are an offensive juggernaut and we turned the D up on them in a way that championship teams do.

We will ALWAYS be able to fall back on that defense in the playoffs and with Kieff we can counter the small ball.

Man if we could clone that Beverly shooting for the rest of the year. Having a third guy shoot well, especially from the perimeter. That makes nearly unbeatable.

Again, wow, Vogel is way too obsessed with Rondo IMO. Ronda played ok today......except he should NOT be taking 3 point shots in crunch time!!.......but to say that Ronda "led the charge"? Come on now!!!!


He played 22 minutes and had one good 6 minute stretch in the 3rd quarter when Lebron was resting. He should only play when Lebron is resting.

He was awful in the 1st half, and not great in the 4th quarter. 2-8 FG, 0-2 from 3's and late rotations. It isn't all his fault.

Vogel going with Rondo, Bradley, KCP and asking them to defend Lou, Kawhi, PG13 is on the coach.

Vogel didn't go with the Rondo/Lebron/Dwight trio in the 2nd half and it helped Rondo be less of a negative.

Doc may have all the 'right pieces' but I'm not convinced he knows how to utilize them. Vogel has been getting the most out of all his players.

We won because we have Lebron James and Avery Bradley played lights out. Vogels coaching was fine, but we didn’t win because of Vogel.

We won because of all of those things + Frank -- Man!, just give Frank his due -- he changed up the rotations and did things that ended up working out.

Cheers!

Just for discussion's sake, when was the last time a team won because of the coach.

Vogel made some good adjustments and overall the team is well coached.

We were able to overcome his bad moves today, but when the margin is so thin, it could cost us.

I 100% believe this game isn’t even close if Rondo only plays when Lebron is resting.

I want nothing more than to see this team beat that team in the postseason, but hey...it's the Clippers, for all we know they don't make it out of the 2nd round.


One of the biggest unknowns is how players will react in playoff pressure. We know Kawhi is a killer. Playoff P is hit or miss. Marcus Morris has his Celtics experience.

Remains to be seen how some of these other guys handle the pressure. The pressure on this specific clippers team will also be different as they are the undisputed media favorite to win it all. Not all teams can handle that favorite label.


Just entered the finals the past 5 years and in the East with a already contender team without him, and suddenly he's a playoffs killer? Lebron is still the best playoff performer than KawDiva.

After AB picked Beverley, he was spooked the rest of the game. Bev wasn’t aggressive on the attack/dribble the rest of the way... he gave up the ball instead of being aggressive ... add the fact that AB torched him on the offense was key. Loved how Kuz was a spot on with his defense or how he was doing the extra things like offensive rebounds and the putbacks.

That's because Bev is a little B!#%$ - lol and runs away when the ish gets real.

Great WINS!

Wanted to see wins against the Bucks and Clippers and we got it. Proof we can beat them. Confidence is dramatically boosted, and the psychological doubt removed.

Everyone laughed when Kendrick Perkins on yesterday's Hoop Stream picked the Lakers over the Clippers in a playoff series. Some brought up PG being a difference maker and KP with the epic comeback saying the same guy who had 5 points in a game 7 against Utah? lol
