If Clippers-Nuggets reaches Game 7, regardless of winner:

Game 1: Fri Sept 18 DEN at L.A. Lakers, 9 ET, TNT LAL Wins Game 1
Game 2: Sun Sept 20 DEN at L.A. Lakers, 7:30 ET, TNT LAL Wins Game 2
Game 3: Tue Sept 22 L.A. Lakers at DEN, 9 ET, TNT DEN Wins Game 3
Game 4: Thu Sept 24 L.A. Lakers at DEN, 9 ET, TNT LAL Wins Game4
Game 5*: Sat Sept 26 DEN at L.A. Lakers, 9 ET, TNT LAL Wins Game5
Game 6*: Mon Sept 28 L.A. Lakers at LAC/DEN, TBD, TNT
Game 7*: Wed Sept 30 LAC/DEN at L.A. Lakers, TBD, TNT



This should be interesting.
Cant believe the Nuggets still have a chance.

Either something's seriously wrong in Clipperville or they're sandbagging... So I'm not sure what we're going to face with either team really.
I think if we let it get to a GM7 against either team, it may not be our year. Especially with how the Clips have been playing.

On another note... All the Nuggets fans now hate me... So we have that going for us... Which is nice.

Clippers are definitely sandbagging. Fully expect them to blowout the Nuggets next game.

Nice win over the Rockets. Good to be the franchise to send Mike Antoni home early.

It wasn’t just a win. We handed their asses to them!

It’s good that, in the last game before the WCF, several of our players seem to have found their shooting rhythm. Morris, Caruso, Green, Kuzma are all gradually turning it up.

We’re ready to beat the snot out of the Clippers, Nuggets, Celtics, Heat. Over seven games, I definitely see us as favorites against all of them.

2020-2021
PG: VanVleet, Caruso, Bradley
SG: James, Green, THT
SF: Kuzma, Bertans, Caroline
PF: Davis, Kostas, Cacok
C: McGee, Howard, Kostas

Go huge: PG James | SG Kuz | SF Davis | PF Kostas | C Howard

Ballmer wants a GM7 win for the media, but doesn't want to do it against us or in the finals? IDK...
Look at Doc's IDGAF answers after GM6... I just think either the locker room is broken, and guys aren't talking to each other, or they want a big win going into the 'battle for LA'...

Well..i hope it backfires / shoots them in their foot.
Bad vibes; bad sportsmanship and character playing around in professional games like that and disrespectful to opponent and fans.

No one is stopping the Lakers this postseason, barring any major injuries.
Arguably the greatest franchise ever

lol.. heck of a theory. Sandbagging to take it to 7 games with an injury prone load management centric star cast.. :lol: :lol:

Doc has lost 2 of the 12 3-1 leads blown in playoffs history. And Nugs have shown they got "dogs" who can steal one.

I'll agree that this is not helping, given how we've come out rusty into the first couple of games of our series so far. Pornhub, fleslites and video games littered all over Lakers floor.. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm go give the others they credit today

Danny Green
Danny killing it in the hustle categories. 5th on the team in screen assists (behind our bigs: Davis, Howard, Caruso, McGee). 2nd in deflections with 24 (Caruso leads with 27). Tied for first with AC in offensive loose balls recovered (3 each). 3rd in contested two point shots (37, Kuz with 38, AD with 69). Tied with AC for second in contested threes (34 each; AD with 45). Second overall in contested shots with 71.

Big offensive rebounding all playoffs, especially the last three against Houston (7 in total from the guard position). Shooting has turned around as well - after shooting 34.6% from three against Portland, he shot 42.3% on 5.2 attempts a game against Houston.

+35 in that final game against Houston. Has had 4 games with a + 10 or more (10, 17, 21, 29). For the playoffs, he is a +88.


KCP
KCP is shooting 41.2% from 3 on 5.1 attempts per game.

But if you take out both game 1's where KCP, then KCP is shooting a blistering 48.7% from 3. Fairly high volume too (~5 a game). I said take out both game 1s because of the long layoffs and he is such a slow starter like during the year.

Morris
NBA's No. 1 playoff lineup by plus/minus is the Lakers' usual starting five (LeBron, KCP, Danny, AD, JaVale), which is +39 in 89 minutes.

NBA's No. 2 playoff lineup by plus/minus is the Lakers' new starting five (LeBron, KCP, Danny, Markieff, AD), which is +30 in only 30 minutes.

He shouldn't. JaVale and Dwight with a little bit of AD is going to give him some serious problems.

Ya I think Lakers are very well built to neutralize Jokic. AD is a nightmare matchup for him on both ends. That being said, I'm very much worried about their other guys, especially Harris, MPJ, Grant, and of course Murray.

Still think Lakers' experience and leadership is very strong with LBJ leading the way. Will be tough nonetheless.
