Drummond has been a disaster.. a double figure scoring game could have made a huge difference, no point talking extension with him if he can’t help us during big games.

Lakers D has been a constant throughout the season. If they can get healthy and the offense going we might have a chance in the playoffs (play in)

Caruso took a crown of the helmet shot the NFL would be proud of.


That shot made me a bit angry... yelling at the screen and wishing Dwight were here for some retribution.. that punk even tried to complain about being called for T-Boning Caruso

FWIW.. Caruso always plays above his pay and expectation level

Dude was an accountant in the G league two years ago...


Caruso shows max effort ALWAYS. limited ability , plays as best as he can.
If kuzma played with even a quarter of the heart Caruso plays with he wouldn't be the church league player that he is.



We should find a Popeye focused nickname for Caruso..

Kuz is more talented obviously but I need him to stop worrying so much about his hair and his wardrobe and go all out on a consistent basis.

That’s my hope. We still have the best defense. Just get LeBron back healthy.

Lebron is offense. DS is also some offense. My hope is that Drummond could help AD to shore up the defense while letting Lebron takes care of the scoring. That was our recipe for success last season with Howard. Hopefully, Lebron could repeat last year's playoff performance and carry the team to a repeat.

We signed him here to help us while LeBron was out and he hasn’t delivered.

Also hoping Lebron should be able to enhance his play.
If Dennis was able to make him look like Wilt in the victory over KD and Kyrie a month ago who knows what his true potential could be.

Definitely gotta figure out our big men rotation heading into the finale.

Love the intensity and desire we played with tonight. They played as if they cared about finishing with at least the 6th seed.

If we continue to play with that kind of attitude, and we get healthy, we may have a real shot at the world championship.

So far he has been like Pistons and Cavs fans described him

Hoping he can improve once Lebron comes back

Nice to see AD actually being AD tonight with his 36 points, 12 rebounds, with a few blocks.
Nice balanced game tonight not over doing it.

KCP and AC giving us something with 17 and 18 thank goodness.

An if Dre and Kuz could of made a few buckets we probably win this one. LeSigh....



Anyways,
Gotta dig deep and find a way to bounce back these remaining 5 games.
Back home Sunday against Phoenix

I’m encouraged by AD performances against the Nuggets and Tonight. KCP and AC are dependable. We just need top 5 AD, healthy Lebron and a 3rd option weapon in Dennis.

Damn Big Game James said one of the refs needs to retire lol. Werd.


I immediately knew which one he was talking about, the really old one.


Yeah he tried to go for the “I don’t want to say names“ but everybody knows who you talking about James LOL


The thing about that call is just how off and wacky it was...I honestly felt it was a piss poor attempt at a makeup call for when AD also did a put back. Blazers went nuts over that whining like babies. Apparently it helped them on the Kuz play.

Considering the close nature of the game, and at worst it "being close", thats just a non-call. Needs to be obvious for offensive interference, or you are just clipping that team's aggressiveness.

Caruso was trying to draw that foul wasn’t he? On the replay, it looked like Powell had to change direction when Gasol rotated and I thought Caruso was just making a heads up play by running into his path. Just like Davis did the other day.
