In his last 6 games LeBron averaged 34.8/10.2/6.5 on 57/40/82 shooting. The Lakers are 1-5 in this stretch.


Shame about that last possession. Ugly, ugly loss

This IS the lowest IQ team I've ever seen. Either that or they're very poorly coached.

Not excusing that last play for LBJ, but as he drove the defender yanked his left arm (I just checked - rewind). I believe that caused him to stumble. Of course, refs completely swallowed their whistle on that.

I actually think this game became more problematic when they got the ball back down 102-99 and about 31 seconds left. They rushed 3s when they just needed a 2. Really reduces your options if you dont make that shot.

Outscored 26-16 in the 4th. About right. Grizz are just a superior team vs this current Laker roster (considering injuries and missing players).

Shame to waste LBJ's 3s. Theme of the year so far - waste otherwise good performances by LBJ.

THT won’t look better until after the trade deadline.

Just don’t know what team he’ll be on Lol.

Westbrook has single-handedly devalued triple-doubles for me. It used to be a hallmark of a great game he’s rendered them meaningless. I have never seen less impactful triple-doubles in my life.

Wohoo Westbrook with another triple double


Westbrook was not the problem. THT is horrible this year.

He got his money and is coasting.


He ain’t coasting he just isn’t good. lakers valued his “potential” over what Caruso brings to the table currently…just another boneheaded decision by Rob


Lakers valued his Klutch representation

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

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.

i actually liked how we played. Melo (bleep) us along with THT. But Ariza-Reaves etc being back will cut those two scrubs minutes completely unless Lebron does something.

Vogel back hopefully he sees how much of a liability THT and Melo are.

Reaves
Ariza

back

Collison and Stanley taking more minutes over Melo-THT will be great.

Really im so dissapointed in THT. (bleep) that scrub he fleeced us.

I didn't expect a win tonight. Overall, we played good, just couldn't finish it out. And remember, this was a back to back.

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

I was yelling at my TV for Westbrook not to do something stupid. Yelling and he goes 1 on 3 and blows a layup

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

Sure, Lebron with the turnover but I can’t blame him for the loss. It’s all the other clowns out there on the floor with him..

what is the point of playing fast pace to accommodate Westbrook. he (bleep) layups/dunks anyway. We are turning the ball way too much. slow the pace and if Westbrook can't deal with it, so be it

Yeah, Memphis might be scoring too hard with dwight in there and got too few offense rebounds.

Even though I get angry at coaching the truth is that you can only do so much with what you're given. If you're a defensive coach and they let go of most of your best defenders, and add bone headed players then there's really not much you can do. Westbrook is what he is and he's not going to change until he's starts to play for the minimum. Same story with Howard back in 2012 when he thought he was the alpha and his game was gone. There's a point when players humble themselves in this RW is not ready. AD on the other hand is just an unmotivated lazy dude, and this is his personality.
LBJ is doing his best and he's still great but after 4 quarters he runs out of gas.
The other guys are just poor pieces put together to make a team at the end. No thought behind building a team.

How about stop playing melo at 5? That lineup is stupid, no shooting and no attackers while going small.

We make players on opposing teams look like Jordan.
41 points for Morant who averages almost half that..
