Huge win.

Caruso was unbelievable defensively. Did Lillard score a basket on him at all?

mostly Bs shooting fouls that they call cause of reputation. Caruso gets such a raw deal on his contact with Dame.

Got to see the 2nd half of the game. Looks like KCP had a bad 1st half but he showed a lot of fire in the 3rd quarter. Same can be said for AD.

I would love it if LBJ took better shots. Honestly he shouldn't be shooting deep 3s. It's not his game. Did great at attacking the basket and PnR.

AC did exactly what I want him to do against Dame. Funnel him inside to the big and force him into a tough shot or pass. That is the best you can hope for against one of the best gaurds in the NBA. He definitely got some superstar calls against him but whatevs.

DG was at least 2-4 from 3! That's better!! Didn't get to see a lot of his min.

Also super happy that rondo got no min. Really did not want him out there in a close game like this

Just finished watching the game and I believe again.. :lol: :lol:

Caruso - This cerebral motherf*cker might have had a career game. Defensively a handful. His on ball defense was assertive and disciplined at the same time. He had a switch coverage sequence on Dame with Lebron being the help defender in the 2nd quarter, where they switched thrice in 4-5 seconds and Dame still passed it up. Just special. Play making and ball handling have come a long way in this series, where he may have a shout to genuinely challenge Rondo's minutes now. Beautiful game.

KCP+Danny Green - nice productive night. Special defense by Green in the 3 block sequence with AD towards the end.

Dwight finally had a productive night in this series, where he wasn't a liability. 10 rebounds in 16 minutes with ONLY 2 fouls. AD, Bron and his dominance on the boards was the difference between the 2 halves. +17 rebounds for the team today.

Our big 2 are the best big 2 in the game for sure.
AD's recovery from 2/9 FG start to a 29-8-11-2-3 night on 61% shooting - Ridiculous!!!
Lebron's versatility to go from 16.5 ppg so far to a 31 point half - Ridiculous!!!

I seriously hope there's a 3 day break between games somewhere in there. Bit worried about the grind AD's put himself through these last 3 games. Baller!!

The advantage of the bubble is no travel time. You just go hit your bed after the game.

Let's keep winning. We gotta have more blowout wins against teams like this as the more defensively skilled teams later will wreak havoc on us.

Our defense is the best in the NBA. Amazing defensive show, we won pretty convinginly despite Lillard and CJ's big games.
Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Glad they got the win despite the slow start and terrible FT shooting. Both, James and AD showed up for this one. When that happens the Lakers are hard to beat.

Their big 3 scored 82 points on 65 attempts, most so-called experts would use this metric along with Kuzma’s output to predict the outcome.
Many of us also cringed whenever we see AD take a ton of 16 ft jumpers bec he usually misses them per advanced stats but he made them last night....

Especially those 3pt shooting fouls. They are very questionable.
