Bubble Game #2: Lakers vs Toronto 5:30 8/1/20 

Post#1 » by dockingsched » Sat Aug 1, 2020 9:45 pm

Read on Twitter



After the clips win that locked up the top seed, I’m guessing it’ll be a lot more limited minutes and deep bench rotations. Gotta use the games just to get in shape and mostly stay healthy.

Wouldn’t be surprised if lebron /ad just don’t play as much compared to games that’ll matter.

This is going to be a tougher game for them mentally than the hobo game.

Worst start ive seen in a while. Looks like we got some momentum going.

Raptors are a smart and hard playing team that most teams don’t feel like matching on some random night during the season. Can see how theyve done a good job of getting a good regular season record out of that.

Kuzma has been a pleasant surprise.

Kuzma and Dion are still taking bad shots though.

We're just lucky they've gone in

They shouldn't be playing together. They definitely stall the ball movement.

We gotta start making some wide open looks. It's getting embarrassing.

If Green had hit at least 2 of his 3's we would be winning

Yeah just hope that someone in the East takes out the Raptors in the playoffs.

Just a bad matchup. That five-out offense of the Raptors too tough to handle.

Make that 11 straight L's to Toronto dating back to 2014.

Outscored 66-48 in the second half and outscored 29-12 in the final 8 minutes of the game. Season-worst 35% shooting from the field and going 10-40 from behind the arc will do that to you. Disgusting :nonono:

Just terrible shooting. We have to make more wide open shots. That kid of performance from Danny Green is almost inexcusable.

Also, I'd like to see LeBron discover his mid-range game. He can't either get a step back 3 or a drive to the rim. He has to come off screens as a ball handler and bang home 18-20 footers off the dribble.

Coach has got to get the correct mix in there. Guys who have had success vs Raps in the past.
