Let’s go Lakers.

When is AC fresh gonna be back?

Seriously, one big challenge for this team will be to keep their head in games. We could easily go down by 15 to start the game.

It's time to have a monster game for AD if he wants to have some MPV type of momentum. I'm calling it, 40pts 20reb incoming!

Good defensive start. But too many easy TOs on the other end. Gotta fix that.

The fans sitting on the baseline are pretty close to the Laker bench. Not sure I've seen fans sit as close anywhere else in the current climate

We're going to lose this game because of turnovers.

We have almost no Free throws tonight. Someone on the Lakers has wronged the refs somehow.

I remember when he was a solid player for Minny a few years ago.

looked him up because thought he's the type of backup center the Lakers could use. Unrestricted FA next summer...but seems lakers only want/can afford minimum guys for that spot

Gotta finish stronger. These road games have not been kind to us. looks like Bron will have to take over again.

What worries me is that we're struggling against these guys with no Ja Morant or Jarren Jackson Jr...Not a good sign at all.
