Watched the 4th and OT. Pretty ugly but the Lakers managed to get the win. Way to go AD and Melo. Russ got a triple double. Hope we get healthy soon and can get on a roll.

Hornets lose by five at least if the refs didn't give Lamelo five free points.

Reaves really does understand fundamental concepts of switching defense. He plays good defense on his man and then seamlessly switches off when he needs to. I really like his game.

This game should've been over 10 minutes ago.

Vogel is an idiot for not coaching this team to beat this soft weak ass zone by CHA....

Ejecting Rondo was egregious and costly....

NBA refs are a bunch of cheaters.

WB continues to be a low iq baller.

AD needs to dominate from beginning to end. Too much floating around.

Melo saves Vogel's job for a minute cause his seat is white hot.

If he had the guts to tell both AD and Westbrook that they aren't 3 point shooters so he wants 95% of their offense to come from inside the paint or free throw line, they and we'd be much more efficient.

Not to mention kick out the catalyst for our run in the third

It's kinda crazy that Vogel benched him most of the OT and risk playing bad defenders. Good thing he bring him in with Bradley in the last minute.

The stat padding is so obvious now with Russ. Sags off his man for rebounding position and that’s how the defense breaks down

His game is easy to enjoy. It seems like he is a good at a lot of things. His turnaround jumper deep into the clock out of a timeout late in the 4th was massive.

I like how Vogel saved him until the last minute of OT so he didn't pick up his 6th foul and to put the pressure on Ball

You think Vogel draws that? Westbrook asks him where he wants the ball, AD sets, WB passes, makes a cut and AD goes to work. I don't mind AD getting the ball away from the rim but when he's aggressive and attacks the defender. When he waits 10 seconds just to shoot over him then no, never do that pls

I'm really starting to think that Danny Green was the catalyst in our Banner year.

Ya, just go watch the play were Reaves rotates twice and stops Hayward because Russ plays ZERO D and only focus on the rebound.

WB is not a good basketball player.

Fix was in during the 4th... The refs were trying so hard to keep that spread that they almost lost that game for the Lakers.

He's obviously a stat hunter and his decision making kill us late in games (including tonight).

Vogel must be pulling his hair out watching all the defensive breakdowns Russ makes every single game. They are egregious and detrimental to any success. The team can not hold any leads because Russ is constantly refusing to guard his man or getting beaten immediately over and over. This team is currently playing at an 8th or 9th seed level unless serious upgrades are made there isn’t much room for optimism.

On Spectrum SportsNet they're talking about how crappy AD felt tonight and how he puked after the 3rd quarter.

He still had 32 points, 12 rebounds, 3 steals, 5 blocks and a couple of clutch FTs, despite nausea and a sprained thumb.

Tell me again how he is soft and lacks desire?

If actually given the green light to facilitate, I think he can create his own shot and dished to others just like what he is doing in college. We have not seen what he can already do. As of now he is just doing what Vogel ask him, whick is to defend and stretch the floor.

He has to stop doing that. We have great rebounders in AD, Dwight and LeBron. Russ will get enough rebounds just playing fundamental D.

Looks like it's already his instinct, leaving his man and wait for the rebound. Someone need to point it out that he should not need to do that.

I couldn't believe what I was watching. That should've been a win in regulation.

Between that, giving Rondo that flagrant 2, and taking away those free throws after the fact during the Rockets game, the refs have been on something this season.

They’re bad. That sequence with LaMelo was so weird and they were giving the Lakers all kinds of free points today too. 5 technicals on Charlotte. Maybe they’re working on commission.
