Nets had KD and Kyrie. Lakers didn't have AD, LBJ, Gasol or Kuzma.

Won by 20+

The fact we were still essentially the best defensive team in the league means we can beat anyone if our offense gets going. Problem is, it hasn't been. But tonight it definitely was. The defense is always there, but the offense was too, and we beat the Nets by 20+

Very proud of the team tonight! Amazing effort. These injuries may be a blessing in disguise if it allows so many of our role players to build up confidence!

I definitely would not compare this to what Ibaka was wearing. Ibaka’s tunic was gorgeous and not out of pocket for a man from the republic of Congo.

Kuz’ fit, however....

Nice flex.

We were extremely shorthanded tonight, and we still mustered 126 points against a really good team.

This is why I'm confident we'll beat the Nets in the Finals if we're healthy, even if the scores get into the 120s or 130s.

The Nets' defense is still lacking.

Lakers beat Nets, 126-101

No, that is not a misprint.

Nets were without Harden, but they had Kyrie and KD. They started at LMA at Center.

Lakers got out early, hitting 3's. Went up 11-2. 18-7. As second quarter came to a close Nets started going off, tied the game. Lakers would then pull ahead again. DS was a big factor on this, constantly getting switches that he abused in attacking the basket again, and again, and again.

As the second half started, it went back and forth. At 66-62 Lakers, Kyrie suddenly got upset with DS. They jawed at each other. Double techs. Jawing continued. Kyrie tossed. Jawing continued. DS tossed.

Lakers responded much better to this than the Nets.

After that moment, Lakers would start to pull away. Dre was an absolute mismatch problem for the Nets. He already was in the first half, but now down Kyrie...they had no answer. Then McLemore started heating up. Then the whole team on defense just started swarming like crazy, like a mass of bees to honey.

Before you knew it Nets were down 20. Game over.

This game was won by 1. Solid, to great D; 2. Lakers giving Nets a taste of their own 3 point medicine, going 19-34.

Drummond was just an absolute mismatch issue for the Nets. He had 20 points, 11 boards...in 22 minutes. Yes, 22 minutes.

Harden will obviously give the Nets a different look. But here's what we did see tonight: Dre is still impactful vs a small ball team. He was crashing the boards, causing issues on drives, switching out well, and on offense just being a load.

Just a great, great win for the team. Just keep the focus for Monday's game, Knicks will be no joke, they like to play D as well.

I was basically the only 1 who thought the team will come out today with a purpose.

The Nets were within four points until Kyrie got ejected.

It was a great win... but let's not intentionally exaggerate it.

Wait are you guys (bleep) serious?! I avoided this game and all Internet...couldn’t stomach it.

Excellent. If you can beat the Nets, you can beat the Knicks and Charlotte. Then hopefully AD is back for one of the Utah games and seeding matchups vs. Dallas.

Can’t believe the leftovers won.

They can concentrate in the perimeter Defense as Dre is manning up the paint.
