Best game as a Laker from LeBron.

And Luka was absolutely spectacular. He just needs to quit with the BS. Even The Ringer dudes talked about it on a podcast this week. I hadn't seen it for myself so I had no opinion. But wow, they weren't kidding.

He completely vanished. I can't think of a single thing he did in the second half. Meanwhile Doncic put the entire team on his back and went toe-to-toe with one of the best ever. Pretty lame.


Kristaps was forgettable. Only occasions I’d notice he was in was when AD was scoring on him.

Lakers were out rebounded by 20 this game

That’s not going to happen often. And to win? Amaizng

AD completely shut him down in the second half.

He'll almost certainly get to the point where he annoys me. Right now I'm just marveling at his skill level / maturity / swagger at such a young age.

Man Lebron and AD were amazing in this game. Love it when Lebron reminds everyone that he still has another gear that no one else in the NBA has. AD beasted as well, and completely erased KP in the second half.

Oh, and Dallas is for real.

Massive win. This team’s got resilience and composure. Could have easily given up and lost by double digits.

AD seemed non-existent for a lot of the game and still finished with 31 points.

Take away the 3s and he shot 15-23. Much better than it seemed.

True, and I also thought it was a little BS he only went to the line twice.

AD should not be shooting 3s. I don't understand that.

Home-court advantage right there: 27 FTs in three quarters at home, 2 FTs in OT game on road.

I did think it was weak he only had eight rebounds. Got outrebounded by both Luka and Porzingis on night we got slammed on the glass. That could have cost us.

Actually that has been a trend this season. We're in the second half of the league in every rebounding stat available but we are also top 10 in pretty much every defensive category available. We need to sort out the rebounding and we'll be fine.
