Why the hell is Austin still in health and safety? He's been out for 11 days - the requirement is 10.

@LakersReporter
Lakers starters at Houston:

Russell Westbrook, Avery Bradley, Malik Monk, Stanley Johnson and LeBron James

This is the 19th starting lineup the Lakers have used amidst their early-season flurry of injury and illness absences.



....................................................

Would it really be too much to ask to try a lineup of

Russell Westbrook
Malik Monk
LeBron James
Carmelo Anthony
Dwight Howard

And see how that works for us?

A bit concerning with Lebron starting at center.

Hopefully FIz isnt pulling a D'Antoni an over using Lebron like he did Kobe before he got hurt.


But come to think of it, I do not believe Fizdale or even Vogel has control on what Lebron wants for this team. This could be Lebron's decision

Honestly Lebron doesn't really get too physical at the rim in these lineups. What they give up defensively they make up offensively, which is better than being bad at both.

It depends. Maybe with Houston who struggles to score just likes us.

But with a high powered offense like Phoenix, GSW, and Brooklyn we see how quickly it backfires on us when the entire team isn’t giving maximum effort on defense.

Christian Wood is playing at a high level we definitely gotta monitor the situation at hand. Hopefully not too prideful to throw in the towel and play Dwight if we are getting annihilated on the boards.

The Rockets are a bottom dweller who is missing half their roster and are on a back to back. So I guess I should expect a close game?

We look good offensively. Just have to hope the Rockets cool off. We’re keeping them out of the paint

This is a decent lineup. Good balance of offense and defense. Just need to keep grinding.

Yeah the rebound doesn't matter if you immediately turn it over.
