Stu really thinks that if a team has numbers on the break, they should just send a guy back to play defense.


Commentators love their hindsight judgement. Imagine if they taught this at any level of basketball lol


The guy is an idiot sometimes. A team with a 5 on 4 should score easily and then get back on defense. You don’t play it 4 on 4 just because the other team has a guy trailing.

Wait till we ramp it up. Scoring 120 a game and not getting much energy from Bron or AD.

Lebron & AD both having to play a lot of minutes this game


Honestly I think it was there personal choice.

They want to get back into Game shape as they haven’t felt themselves this season thus far

doubtful
our starters were having a hard time holding this lead


Even in crunch time ( not really crunch time because we maintained at least 8 point lead) we were cruising or maybe winded.

They know they still got a lot of chemistry to build up. I got that feeling they are trying to get out there and burn as much as possible under Vogel’s minute restrictions

Lebron shooting 11/23 scoring 26.

Horrible shooting percentage and he’d be the first to tell you that.

Definitely not in game shape. Normally Bron drops 30 on 11/15

He has a poison pill if traded this year, but not from next year onwards. Kuz isn't going anywhere this year

121-107 win. Ho-hum sort of game in many ways, Lakers never really felt challenged.

Short bench in this one - almost a "playoff" approach in terms of shortening the bench by Vog, until the last minute or so.

As usual, after a poor game, AD came out much more effective: 9-15 of the field, was more active on both ends.

Game ball goes to Wes tho - 6-6 from 3. Nice

Issue: Defense still. Interior looks fairly soft.

lol since when is 48% a horrible shooting percentage? He wanted a big birthday game, but the shots didn't fall in the second half. It's rare that he takes that many attempts.

defense will look soft if there are no effort. People act like they don’t know anything. Without effort defense suffer

The petty side of me absolutely hates the proficiency of the Net's offense. It would appear KD is still a walking 30 points.

For Lebron it’s bad.
This guy constantly drops 25-30+ points shooting above 75%.

Once again this guy is soo great that he will always be held to that standard.
In another words I am especially going to be on him to maintain this greatness as I want Lebron to continue proving to all his haters that Father Time doesn’t exist to him.

In fairness to Stu, the context was leaving a man, in this case LeBron, completely alone at his end without a man back. Look what happened. His point was solid.

I'm starting to think we would have been better standing pat with the same team from last year...If any of those guys (AB,DH12,DG,Mcgee) get hurt this year, then I'll change my mind maybe lol.

I think you may be oversimplifying it. Could be more than that, e.g. talent to deal with the interior issue (yes, even with AD). When your own announcers are pointing that out, it's time to acknowledge its something to keep in mind IMO.
