Yes, especially if he is hot. He just can’t be your 4, we can hide his defense a little better at 3


Question.....Kuz or Melo rn?


Is this a real question? lol


What you mean? What's your answer?

Melo. Kuz has more than enough time to prove himself. I don’t care what he does in Wsh

This is what we missed against OKC. LeBron orchestrated the entire offense. Melo was hot from 3. Got AD an easy layup which forced the big to drop back more and Bron attacked instead. He controlled the last few minutes

3 point shooting has been their biggest strength so far.

Kuz is killing it in Wash. He's rebounding like a mutha right now. Plus, he's infinitely better than Melo defensively. But with this particular team..I'm actually a bit torn....we'll see how long Melo can keep this offensive production up. But the truth is, Melo will always be a liability defensively.

What did you guys think of WB tonight?

His decision making was good tonight. Only 4 turnovers and 1 3-pt attempt (he made it) along with an efficient 19 points.

This. Can. Work.

Cavs got a special player in Mobley. Kid is already contributing serious numbers.

Did you say Washington? I think that settles the debate. Also melo is vet min, Kuz is 13 mil

Lakers win 113-101

Up and down game for most of the first 3 quarters until end of 3rd and into the 4th.

Lakers jumped up early 21-15; then we watched the familiar awful D show up as over an 8-9 minute span the Cavs would score 31 points and take a 46-39 lead. Some ugly sequences where Melo was getting caught in no man's land on D; Cavs also were going off with the PnR. Lakers tied it at 54 at half.

Second half opened with Cavs killing it with the PnR again and took a 9 point lead. Enough was enough, out went DJ and rest of game Vog primarily relied on Baze, AB, Reaves, AD, LBJ, Dwight to get the team's D going. After they plugged up the lane, Vog felt comfy using a Baze, AB, Melo, AD and LBJ lineup for a bit which worked quite well.

Overall, some positives to take. Cavs are actually are a solid team, so I consider this a nice win. Team came from behind and closed out with a double digit win.

Team has a long way to go, however. Plus, Russ is still a wildcard.

He looks like.the Younger AD. Kid is going to be special, and obviously future Laker. He is home grown

Seems like a good turnaround occurred at some point. I checked in the third and we were down double digits—I’ll take a win by 10+ under those circumstances any time. Good win.


Lineup change and Lakers started squashing the PnR attacks. Was basically D creating O for an extended period.

They're 4-1, we're 3-3. Eastern Conference blah, blah blah, bottom line Kuz and the Wiz are playing good ball.....much like AC and the Bulls.

Great adjustment by Vogel in the 2nd half... Played AB more and benched Monk.


Miggz...do we dare to hope Vog may have changed his stubborn ways?

Had to watch delayed, just got to the end, almost caught up to real time. You can tell who the real leader of this team is. Completely turnaround when LeBron is on the floor! LBJ was a beast, and others followed.


Good to see a win. WAY better effort this time. Build on this Lakers!

Monk probably should never have even tried to play because he has a cold.

We will see next game... Also interesting if we would have seen Rondo tonight if he was not hurt.

Kuz has no expectations and barely any eyes on him. The lights were too bright in LA. Prefer Melo. KCP is the only player I wouldn’t mind back. Don’t miss Kuz.

What does that have to do with who is right for the lakers? Trezz is playing well too, do you miss him too? DS too. I am glad to see them doing well, but melo is a better fit for this lakers team

Melo definitely had a big game. Impressed with how he helped break this open late. He made it work. We'll see how he stands late season, but games like this one certainly help his cause.

Kuz lovers are hilarious….dude was the most inconsistent player this team had for years. Melo is a far better contributor and it’s not even close.
Good for Kuz to ball on a crappy team with KCP and Harrell.
Melo was the right fit.

Well, he's a wildcard with the 3 ball, which I'm fine with. He can go 6-8, or 1-7. Just really wish there was some way to consistently have him fit better on D.

The 2 bad games he had were both without lebron, and he had 2 great games and 2 ok games other than that. Not a coincidence because he wouldn’t be asked to play 4 when Lebron plays
