This game was over early, so I decided to skip it.

The Lakers gave up 48 points in the first quarter. They trailed by 26 after the first quarter. That was the ball game. Brez just said the 48 points was the fourth highest quarter the team has ever given up. Ouch.

No need to recap this one. Just another Laker train wreck. LeBron got his 10,000th assist on a kick out to Melo for a three.

The Lakers lost their 10th game in a row on the road, 140-111. Sheesh.

Things that stink this bad always stem from the top. A lot can be explained about how we got here, but the bottom line is this issue rests with Jeanie. If she doesn’t make changes, it’s time for fans to take a look at their interest in supporting the franchise.

Jeanie has empowered Rob to make the necessary changes and given financial resources - despite not having the mega financial resources of all the other teams

LBJ/AD should be held accountable for their decision to bring Westbrook and to not make it work - or even provide the effort

Even the Nets have had serious issues
https://global.espn.com/nba/standings

Maybe the wisest move would be to load manage LBJ’s MPG since we will be in the 9th spot of the Play-In

Maybe Vogel should do what Pop did one time, in the first quarter - take out Duncan, Parker, Manu and the other two Spurs at one time when they weren’t playing with any effort

What do you do with a team where
The Face (AD) can’t be dependent on to stay on the court
Da Man (LBJ) is 37/38 years old and appears to start needing load management
LaBrick (Westbrook) will be the highest paid player coming off the bench playing the Rajon Rondo role
OleOle (Melo) Can get buckets and give up buckets
Last Legs (Dwight) not able to provide the energy
THT - He’s 21 years old
Reeves - He’s a Rook
Johnson - G League Glue Guy
Baze in a Haze - Too tires
Ariza - Legs gone
Ellington - Stuck (on the bench)
AB - AB Who?

Stanley Johnson: D

Johnson didn’t assert himself offensively at all, and he didn’t do much defensively either. He was just 0-of-2 from the field and had three rebounds in 11 minutes.

Austin Reaves: B

Reaves wasn’t that assertive offensively either, but when he did, he was pretty effective. He shot 2-of-4 from the field and 1-of-2 from 3-point range in 25 minutes while grabbing four rebounds.

One thing he did really well was draw fouls. He shot six free throws, making five of them, leading to 10 points overall.

Malik Monk: B-

Monk was efficient tonight, shooting 5-of-10 from the field and 2-of-4 from downtown for 13 points in 27 minutes. He also added four rebounds and four assists.

But the Lakers needed more from him, especially early on when the game was being decided.

Russell Westbrook: C-

Westbrook’s offensive stat line looked passable (5-of-10 shooting from the field, 3-of-4 from the free throw line, 13 points in 29 minutes), but it was misleading, as his shot selection was questionable at times.

Although he had four turnovers, which is manageable, all or most of them were of the careless variety. He also had just two rebounds and two assists, well under par for him.

LeBron James: A-

Statistically, James did very well in his 30 minutes, scoring 31 points on 10-of-20 shooting from the field, 5-of-11 from downtown and 6-of-7 from the charity stripe while grabbing seven rebounds and dishing out six dimes.

But it was empty calories, as his team was never really in the contest.

On the bright side, James did reach a historic milestone that no one else has ever achieved before.

Avery Bradley: B

In 25 minutes, Bradley did well, hitting 3-of-5 shots from the field and all three of his attempts from downtown. But he didn’t contribute in any other facet of the game.

Dwight Howard: B

Howard got 17 minutes on Sunday and helped the Lakers on the boards with five rebounds, to go along with two assists and one field goal.

Perhaps if coach Vogel had started him, the Lakers would’ve made things a little more competitive thanks to Howard’s size and physicality.

Carmelo Anthony: A-

This was one of those nights when Anthony was hot, although it didn’t seem to make the slightest dent on the outcome. He was 6-of-11 from the field and 4-of-7 from 3-point land, scoring 18 points in 18 minutes.

As usual though, Anthony didn’t put up much resistance on the defensive end, and he grabbed just one rebound.

Wenyen Gabriel: B-

Gabriel got in for 12 minutes and continued to show good energy, getting three rebounds and dishing off two assists.

Offensively he wasn’t great, making just 1-of-3 shots, but his energy and activity led to him drawing three fouls that led to free throws for him. He was just 3-of-5 from the charity stripe, however.

Kent Bazemore: D-

In six minutes of garbage time, Bazemore contributed almost nothing. He missed both of his shot attempts and had one steal.

Wayne Ellington: B

Ellington barely plays, but when he does, he can still be relied upon to hit from the outside.

In nine minutes on Sunday, he made 2-of-3 shots from the field, including 1-of-2 from downtown. He also chipped in two rebounds, one assist and one steal.

Talen Horton-Tucker: D-

Tucker was ice-cold from the field tonight, missing all but one of his eight shot attempts and all four of his 3-point attempts, although he did manage to have three assists.

His three turnovers in 22 minutes hurt the team and were symptomatic of a team-wide problem.

D.J. Augustin: C+

The Lakers’ new backup point guard only got into the contest in the fourth quarter for nine minutes. He missed both of his shot attempts, both of which were 3-pointers, to go along with three rebounds and two assists.

So +/- doesn’t matter this time when grading

Nobody played well. No one should have graded higher than a C-, while the majority of the team should get an F for that piss-poor effort.

Now that is a consistent approach and wholeheartedly agree.

No he wasn't. He also said out loud for the first time that I can recall this season that he has a team of non-defense players.

Thanks A-Mad for doing a write up.

Honestly, I don't know if I've ever had my laptop and notes ready to go, started to take notes and then just decided, nope after a quarter. Maybe once or twice. Usually if I'm good to go, it's getting done.

This one was hot garbage. I used my time better on another writing project while watching.

I totally relate, DB. My wife and I had the game recorded, and watched maybe 10 minutes and gave up, fast-forwarding just in chance there was a comeback. Due to the time change, we didn't get started until late, so it was just as well. 48 points in the first quarter??? Get ready for a 200 point game against us!!
