I trust AC more than Schroder tbh.

I would have AC on the court with all closing lineups. Schroder tbd on if he’s playing better than KCP or if Vogel goes 3 guards.

123-110 Lakers win.

Just a tremendous win. More importantly, this is two really good games in a row by the team (against two really good teams) where they hustled and played hard (if the Refs didnt screw them last game with those wonky offensive interference call, etc, who knows what happens).

AD was a beast. 42-12, 5 assists, 3(I thought it was 4) blocks. The 4th quarter his offense started to fade as his legs - with 40+ minutes played - started to feel the burn. But he saved his best on the defensive end, constantly causing issues.

Caruso/KCP did well again! Back to back nights those two did their job as the Lakers back court.

3 ball - Lakers hot 40%. Just some huge shots were hit.

There are things we can complain about. For example, they gave up two 30+ quarters in the second half. Also, to start the 4th, they gave up 23 points in 6 minutes (almost 4 points a minute). That made things alot closer than we liked after getting a 20+ point lead.

But overall, just another terrific effort. Also, kudos to Vog for FINALLY PLAYING TREZ/GASOL.

Drummond: Dude, are you able to dunk without getting a running start?

Next up: Knicks. I really hope the fellas take it to them. Very happy this effort, which was similar to Friday's, got them the W.

DS brings defense and an unique element of dribble penetration, so he will be playing. We might very well see Lebron at the 4 with 3 guards to close out games

AC is a special player... he is just out there executing 24/7. Him and KCP put the clamps on Cp3 and booker.

I don't. AC is good in his role when he's stays within himself. Shhroder is a pesky defender in his own right and brings more to the table offensively.

Always see it when a player put in a couple of good games... I remember people calling for AC's head 3-4 games ago.

KCP/Caruso back-court played well tonight. Wes and BMac were solid too.
Very good team effort on both ends of the floor for the Lakers.
Much needed victory!

Always love a win!

Team played with some energy and hit shots. Davis playing at an MVP level is always enjoying as hell to watch.

Maybe this will jumpstart this team going into the play-in game.

Suns have to be like FML.

It’s going to be tough for them to get out of that 2 spot.


but it will also be tough for us to keep that 7 spot, Portland plays @Utah @ Phoenix , vs Denver

I think we play the Clippers 1st round.

Drummond, Gasol
AD, Harrell
LeBron, Kuz
KCP, Wes/Ben
Caruso, Schröder

Would love to see that be the playoff groupings with AD, LeBron, Dennis KCP + AC, Gasol, Kuz, or Kief to close. I know it won't happen but Those are probably the best groupings we can have. Also, Drummond is awful.

We will not go 11 deep in the playoffs.

AC, Kuz, and KCP all have championship experience. They've all been in the trenches. I would love to go to war with these guys and would completely trust them to have my back.

I chuckle when I thought about how people would give up all of these guys to resign Drummond last month.

Here's to hoping this effort wasn't a fluke, I want to see this type of effort against the Knicks.
