smh.


Part of that disparity is due to lazy reaching fouls and too many stupid fouls putting the other team into the penalty halfway through a quarter.

I agree with the opinion someone stated above. Low IQ team! Too many wasted possessions and TOs.

I remember when it used to be the Lakers that were the ones getting outplayed until they turned on the intensity and caused the bad team to fold defense an the stretch. Now it is the Lakers playing the role of a bad team finding a way to lose… again.

True, but when a foul can technically be called on every play, that’s a bit of a disparity

Why did Lebron jump in the air on that last pass. That was unnecessary.


overthinking... he shouldve just taken his usual step back 3... at least that has 30% chance of going in.

That wasn’t happening. LeBron made a move, got fouled and lost his balance. The entire play was blown up because Monk refused to shoot and refused to pass to a wide open Westbrook. He became the decision maker when they doubled Bron


he took too long to make a decision... ball stuck with for like 10+ seconds... swing the ball

Monk panicked but he straight up decided not to pass to Russ. That wasn’t cool


I wanted them to get a quick 2, but Lebron pulled up for 3, Bradleys' 3 got blocked.. then Lebron and Monk had a brain-freeze.

if Lebron didn't stumble I think he couldve dished for an open 3.. just a series of unfortunate events.

I think lebron and Russ was fouled on some of their layups, but the disparity is kind of big

Dwight was +17 in 16 minutes. Thank God he didn’t play more. If he did lakers might’ve been in danger of winning. Luckily they dodged that bullet.


Our coaches do not know how to use our players is why the lineups are so inconsistent

Our team has no identity other than "UNDER 500" 17-19

You can’t play small ball with 4 bad shooters and a cold melo, that’s just asking for trouble

I think we've got a potential 4 game win streak incoming guys.

Portland
Minny
Sac
Atlanta

With players back and scrubs getting less minutes i can see us going on a streak.

Did you see Minny in there? Lol


Covid. They got a lot of players out. But they'll all be back against us probaly lol.

Third times the charm.

You play players that will get hunted in the 4th quarter, you won’t win.

Apparently the coaching staff doesn’t understand how easy it makes it for opponents when you can hunt matchups again, again and again.

If they want to jumpstart this season, they need a 4-0 homestand.

Just don’t expect Any significant streaks until AD is back. Staying near 500 should be a more realistic goal

Yup, oldies on back-to-back as expected. We were great for 2.8 quarters until we couldn't hold it up anymore. The last 3 minutes of the third quarter and the fourth quarter we just ran out of gas.

Not sure to blame THT or Russ or Melo or Pelinka or all of the above for this loss.

Only saw Edwards and Taurean being cleared.

NBA.com doesn't say anything about KAT nd Russell being cleared.
