Go Lakers!

Crush them. Don’t let them get off to a hot start. Be ready to play from the first second.

Snaq, is it true that you made this game thread all by yourself?

We'll need great defensive efforts from Green, KCP and Caruso. they have to slow down Lillard and CJ.

We can't get into a running game with these guys.
LBJ and AD will be solid. One thing we'll need less of is LBJ turnovers. I hope we can get AD going early. He'll need to swat some shots and play like a DPOY.

Kuz and Green and KCP will need to hit their open 3s.

I think we'll come out strong tonight.
limit TOs and control the boards.

Let's go Lakers!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

I really hope we don't get off to a slow start like we usually do. We got to punch them in the mouth right from the beginning.

Charles is really underrating us. I get that we haven't looked good, but swept?

Looks like we're digging ourselves a hole and we're going to play catch up. Like always...

Danny Green single handedly created a 10 point deficit

To think we could've got Reddick instead of overrated Danny Green...

AD getting outplayed. If AD doesn't play like the 2nd or 3rd best player on the court at all times we have no chance.
