IT had good looks and just had a bad shooting night. He was under control and didn't play badly until the end.

THT is always a bad shooter.

That was a good game until LBJ turned his ankle and Russ made a few horrible turnovers that started the snowball into the toilet.

Why wasn't Dwight able to play?

We should cut Jordan and play the G-League dude

THT-DAJ-Rondo-IT-Russ was to blame, in that order

At least THT can play defense. Rondo is worse

Thomas was not under control and took at least two pull-up 3s in transition despite being cold. Then he got abused defensively. I wasn’t impressed with him last game too, only his first one. Teams will figure him out.

IT deserves blame, but I'd still try to keep him if possible.

He looks like an NBA player again.

DJ looks like trash and I'm starting to lose hope in THT.

Rondo just looks uninterested... maybe because they hardly play him.

Russ was fine until that turnover fest that put the game out of reach.

Agreed.
If russ didn’t have that TO fest in the 3rd, he played a solid game because we only had 3 TOS in the first half, but that’s russ. Frustrating to watch. I loved how he attacked the basket, but once the suns started playing zone and dare us to shoot, it was over

Someone bought up going after Tristan Thompson, but I think Damien Jones is much more possible because the Kings will probably value Thompson’s experience as they look to make a run for the play in tournament.

The kings need to waive Thompson which they won’t. They have a ton of bigs

They would be idiots to waive a player teams would show interest in, his experience should be valuable for a team that wants to make the playoffs.

The kings sure doesn’t need DAJ nor a second round pick just to trade us jones. Thompson is making 9.5 mil, so we can’t trade for him.

Give me a player like IT or Russ any day over someone who cowers in fear of big moments.

IT historically is a good shooter... so it's only a matter of time before he hits his shots.

He did look bad at the end, but he was fine most of the game.

At least he has the capability of taking over a game which isn't something I can't say about most of our journeymen.

What exactly is the point of IT? Will he be the difference of us winning a chip? He's a chucker who's past his prime still capable of getting hot now and then.

We still dont know what THT is and he's extremely young playing on a dysfunctional team. We'd be even more stunted if we picked IT over him.

THT had 6 missed shot clock bailout 3s. He’s 21 years old, gonna have nights like this getting his legs back. I guess people forget his last game he had 19 points and 6 steals. He also did a decent job containing Booker.

He’s the worst player in the league. He was beyond done last season. He was so bad that the Nets, a team desperate for size and who had two of his best friends as stars on the team, benched his ass for being useless. And Pelinka decided it would be a good idea to sign him? I was shocked and appalled when it was announced, but I thought maybe they knew something I didn’t. Spoiler alert: they didn’t.

If Damian Jones is possible, you grab him. Miles better than what DeAndre provides

Surely they get rid of one of their bigs, they literally have a logjam

Huff guarded that last pick and roll better than DAJ ever did. Play him, he can’t be worse than DAJ


He'd at least open up the lane with his stretch 5 capabilities.

IT was awful but he made those same questionable shots in his first two games. Hard for me to attribute too much blame to him, he didn't seem all that destructive out there.

Rondo and especially DJ are just absolutely useless. Also, THT should not see the floor if this team is ever fully healthy.

Disappointing but hardly a surprise they got dumped by 20.

Two teams in different realms of the league.

One a well rounded deep team that is playing for a ring.

The other a cluster****! Nobody knows their roles or plays consistently. They can’t consistently shoot, defend or run an offense. Basically just another mediocre collection of players trying to find a way into the playoffs.

Unfortunately, the band of misfits wear the Laker uniform and endure the weight of the scrutiny it brings with it.

I blame this on coaching staff, players can't do much with the way the combination on the court the coach fielded.
