Welp, I sort of followed the game - result what I expected, especially with no Dre.

I'll give the team credit for staying competitive through most of the game, but Celtics just kept hitting run stopping shots. That 3 after an ATO in the 3rd after Kuz trimmed lead to 7 was it. Unhealthy banged up team v. healthy talented team...who by the way would not cut us any slack, shooting like 60% from the field and 50%ish from 3? Good grief.

Oh well, onto the next. Hopefully Dre will be healthy. If not, the middle of the D will be eaten up similarly as the Celtics did tonight. I give the lakers a shot to pull out 1 of those 2 Jazz games if their D can hold up, and Jazz have a subpar shooting game.

Well of course Brad Steven said that his team only has one guy that’s 30 years old. We need rest. our team is old.

What the heck happened? The Lakers were starting to get into their usual late game great shooting and then the game just took a sharp turn out of nowhere.


I feel like our defense hasn’t been as strong as in recent games.


No one could stop Brown when he was re-inserted in the 3rd after the Lakers cut lead to 7. The interior D with no real big in their looked like a juicy steak to the Celtics. Plus they kept hitting shots, even contested ones. Combined that with D in the interior declining...

and that was that

You ain’t winning sh*t with that..


Gasol - 18


Which I am happy about...
KCP, Matthews and Schroder - pathetic showing


Schrö playing through injury and actually wasn’t expected to play at all. But fully agreed on KCP and Wes. They needed to do better.

I like what I am seeing on McKinnie, he's been quality minutes this season. Always play good with the little time given to him.

This is how he was for GSW and I was hoping he would become this way for us.

I think he can be a good backup to lebron, playing 10 minutes.

Our scrubs lineup has the advantage of actually getting minutes lately since we've been so depleted. Their lineup probably never sees the floor
