Lakers win 114-103

Outside of one of the worst quarters of the year for the team (the 2nd), Lakers basically played well overall for 3 of the 4 quarters.

The second was abysmal. Outscored 40-22, they watched the Magic steam roll over them with a 32-9 run and take a 7 point lead. They packed the paint, deployed a high PnR, and Lakers looked as confused as they did in the 4th vs the Mavs.

The team also seemed out of it; effort seemed off.

Lakers came out much more focused in the second half. More assertive on offense and more disciplined on D. Cut deficit to 1 to end the 3rd. Behind McLemore quick 3s, took the lead in the 4th. Took control midway...and started to pull away as the game went along.

AD - 8-15 from the field, 18 points, 8 boards.

DS - went off in the fourth.

Trez - props to him playing an overall solid game, was a big reason the team got into it in the second half.

In no way an ideal game, the second quarter was humiliating - almost as bad a feeling from the Mavs loss. But the team got back into it, and won the game vs a hungry team.

Onto the next one. Wizards are no joke...they have talent that can cause problems.

There are folks who at halftime wanted him gone

We just have to understand what he is, and is not. He is very much on offense a streaky guy. If he is on...watch out. If off, you want to strangle him cuz he starts making sloppy passes and taking goofball shots.

He does have a fairly reliable mid-range jumper tho. I always feel like that is going in.

Its ok IG, in game threads...yea, logic and common sense have as much weight as raw emotion, passion, and fan-reactionism.

We can’t afford to play like this against the top contenders or else we won’t stand a chance so my concerns or anyone else’s is still legit, we gotta get better or we won’t stand a chance in the playoffs.

Not me. I am fully rational in all of my game thread posts with not an ounce of overreactions.

It's very, very possible that this team's achilles heel this year may be just an inability to put together a solid or better performance for 48 minutes. And it could very well cost them in the playoffs.

Schroder is really good. His role is not really point guard but damn he is fearless.

I mean, if a Grizzlies fan says he doesn't think his team can win the chip this year, does this mean he's not a fan or is he just being realistic?

Dennis or AD should be the only two shooting the rest of the way lol


AD? hard pass on that man. He ain't even good enough to be 2nd option right now. And that's really sad. This Orlando magic chihuahua dog dunkin the ball is 10x better than AD right now.


he a brick boy right now man.

and the chihuahua did a 360 dunk. that's better than what AD can give us at this moment.


AD just came back from a 30 game injury. He was behind only Lebron in getting us a ring just last season. Your take is pathetic.

You know who else was described as a streaky guy?

Lance Stephenson. Guess what... he has a higher eFG than Schroder and he's out of the league right now.

Kuzma is streaky... but he shoots 3 or 4% better than Dennis.

Again, I think he's a perfectly good sixth man... I just don't want to pay him over 21 million a year.

No amount of hyping him... especially after playing a garbage team like Orlando is going to make me change my mind.

Now, if he plays well through the playoffs and helps get us a title... then you might sway me.

Glad we got the win. Keiff hasn’t been the same since the ankle injury. If he can’t hit those threes he needs less minutes.

If they would have lost I would have said the dog at halftime slam dunking was the best part of the game, hell it was and the Lakers won.
