key to the game 3 and rest of the series for that matter: Dwight do less yapping and continues punk Jokic quietly. his antics in game 2 no doubt got on refs' nerves, hence they tighten up the calls on him. Dwight has to be smart, don't be too obvious when punking Jokic, gotta use his veteran savviness he displayed in game 1.

Expect to see AD come out with more defensive intensity especially against Jokic, he wasn't happy letting Jokic score over him in the previous game


AD can play with Jokic, we are gonna need Kuz to step up because MPJ is starting to find his groove.

Cutdown on turnovers and expecting the refs to be better in this game...

Go back to the game 1 rotation. Start Dwight in the 2nd half and play him more.

Denver plays with no pressure, So I’m expecting them to come out firing, and probably will force Rondo and Caruso to beat them.


Marc Davis and Kane Fitzgerald tonight This will be much more like game 1.

Milsap did say marcus Morris said something that fueled him and rest of the team. Dwight needs to chill with the (bleep) talking

Come out of the gate smoking. Start JaVale. He can start the get into Jokic's head game plan. Howard has done it on occasion. Sic him on the Joker next. When he's frazzled put Morris on him. Double Murray, make him a passer. If we get a lead don't let up. We've been letting them back into games.

AD be aggressive. Bron has to snap out of whatever he was in, in the last game. Our perimeter shooters have to keep up the good shooting.

I'm looking for a 10 12 point win.

GO LAKERS !!!

Lakers better be practicing their 3-pointers because the Nuggets will take away the inside and hope the Lakers' weakness is still outside shooting.

That's where our rebounding and transition games have to kick in. If we defend and get out in transition we will be in good shape.

IMO Denver will come out playing loose because they are still playing with "house money." The Laker's defense will be tested for 48 minutes tonight.

    LET'S GO LAKERS!!

here's a thought, why not try LeBron at center for some stretch of time with Jokic on the floor. i'd like to see LeBron using his strength backing down Jokic, make him spend ton of energy guarding LBJ in the post. maybe just 10 mins total in the game will do.

I think we may see some Markieff tonight. We need his 3pt shooting. He was 4-4 against Houston 3-4 against Denver.

The Lakers should expect Denver to come out more confident and desperate tonight.

Gotta come out hungrier and more careful with the ball.
Lebron having a sluggish second half last game expect him to come out guns blazing.

Gotta control their role guys like MPJ, Dozier, Morris.


Let’s go Lakers!!!!! 🏀💪🏀🙏🏀💪🏀🙏🏀💪

NO LINEUP CHANGES

Frankie V has been known to be not entirely forthcoming regarding starting lineups...


Per Goon

Frank Vogel says there was consideration to changing the starting lineup but the Lakers are going with the same lineup tonight in Game 3.

See the Tweet in the injury thread. Kyle Goon - Who is there in the bubble - reported that he was out warming up and said that that looks good for a possible play tonight. Most replies however were saying that it looks good that he’ll be back sometime in the series or maybe in the next series probably not tonight. I post from both the official NBA injury thread but a lot of times more current information comes from the beat reporters who are there on site.
