If they want to give THT his deserve minutes next season, I think they should not extend DS, or might as well give Kuz minutes to him. Kid is consistent af, he just need minutes.

Am I the only one who thinks it’s a douche move to try to steal the ball when the winning team is trying to run out the clock?


Seems like something Patrick Beverley would do, so yes.

One of the better games from the Lakers this season. Just a little rough patch in the 3rd.

Good energy and defense.

THT and Trezz had awesome games.

Lakers are a juggernaut of a team defensively. I don't know who in their right minds would want to play them in a seven game series.

I love his shooting this season. He’s been hot since preseason.

I’m sure he will make a game winning shot at some point during the season or even playoffs.

Lakers win 120-102

First half narrative was basically Lakers D, for most part, was incredibly impressive. 7 blocks. 7 steals. They were flying everywhere. AD was fantastic imposing his will on the Rockets.

The second half both teams brought a bit, lost a bit, then sort of floated in ho-hum mode in the 4th. After the Lakers got to a 27 point lead, Rockets made one strong push to get as close as 11. However, Lakers got things back under control. Beginning the 4th, with LBJ resting, and AD on the floor, the Lakers would stretch a 13 point lead into 20 and the game was over with half the quarter remaining.

Props: AD. Was just nuts on defense, incredibly efficient on offense. Very few boards but it didnt matter.

LBJ: Another nice all around performance

KCP: Energy energy energy on D

DS: Same as KCP, add in 7 assists

Trez: Went beast mode in the 4th on the Rockets to help put them away.

THT: A really nice all around game. Terrific defense. 4 steals. 17 points. Had one nice move at basket that showed almost-Kobe like footwork to move around a defender.

Rockets did not shoot well from 3, so I expect them to shoot better on Tuesday. The one guy who did NOT impress was Christian Wood. Scored 23 points...on 20 shots. Had an occasional nice defensive play, but in part only because the Lakers kept going at him with success.

I expect Rockets will play better on Tuesday. Lakers just need to keep the D intensity for longer stretches.

As an aside, as of today, Lakers have best record in NBA. Not shabby considering how average they have played at times.

I doubt we bring back Matthews so THT should average 20 minutes a game next season.

He took it to Coby White and tonight.. John Wall, he knows how to play with quality PGs, he deserves a nice extension.

I agree. Do you trade him or risk losing him for nothing in the off season?
