Minus Porzingis, Mavs get their heads handed to them in this one.

Lakers win 138-115.

Game really blew open in 4th.

Lakers controlled the game most of the way, usually in double digits. Defense is still a work in progress..it doesnt look pretty and is nowhere near championship form. Yet.

However, tonight, you saw what this depth can do. AD 28 points. LBJ 22. That 50 combined is usually last year what kept Lakers competitive. Now? Trez had 22, DS had 18...40 from the 2 new guys. Was ridiculous.

Lakers destroyed Mavs on the boards on well.

Gasol on D still a question mark to me. He did have 9 boards, however.

Next up: Timberwolves.

A stupid problem to have. Gonna be a problem trying to defend 4 20pt scorers.

I dont think you're overreacting.

How many 20 year olds can do what this kid can do attacking the rim?

That's one of the funniest things to me, Kuz had a pretty good night and hardly anyone even noticed, haha.

THT is definitely special. Crazy how Lebron and Klutch recruited this kid since his junior year in high school.

Then drafting him to the Lakers making it a story book ending

This. Gotta take caruso minutes and see what happens.


Looks like caruso has gotten his stroke back, though it's early to tell.

I'm sure we're going to have to shore up the C position at the buyout market but damn...imagine if Marc starts playing better on offense to negate some of his defensive liabilities?

Or what happens when Vogel really gets a sense of how to use him?

Or what happens in about 10 games once everyone is acclimated to how we play D?

From where we were Summer 2019 to today is the work of a genius...the GM stands for Genius Man.

I got major issues buying anything Nike creates for the Lakers. I really gotta stay dissplinter and not buy any of these Elgin Baylor edition shorts and jerseys.....

What scary is Lebron is probably going at about 70% right now... Gasol and Matthews still figuring out how to fit in.

So, hopefully the L vs the Clips was a first game / ring ceremony fluke type of thing.

Love THT but you guys can’t be serious on cutting Caruso’s minutes. AC creates too many opportunities defensively and offensively.

THT is the shiny new toy and people are bored of AC now. If he takes anybody's minutes, it should be Matthews.

It was.

An by me saying that soo freely is not any way saying the Clippers aren’t the real deal.

Lebron hardly guarded Kawhi or PG. An when that happens normally towards the end of the season when it really counts I like our chances.

I think AC is more dependable now at both ends of the floor and he can play with Bron more than THT.

THT though will be a good replacement to Bron when he is resting.

As much as I like THT now he doesn't still have the toughness of AC specially in the defensive end. Let's wait till the kid become ready.

Then gotta find mins for THT

Vogel and crew got a lotta mouths to feed
