As they say in golf, the score card doesn’t show how ugly, only how many.

If Lebron isn't going to sit out games, these are the games that the Lakers need to take advantage of so Lebron can sit the 4th or at least most of it.

These 2 games series are more likely to end up in a split though. Just how it is.

So far we beat injury riddled teams. And lose to two, full strength, western contenders.


Looks like season 2019-2020 part II

It's really important to win when the shooting is very cold. On to the next.
Arguably the greatest franchise ever

The question is, if the shots they missed were the HIGHEST % quality shots taken? Vogel has proven to be an exceptional defensive minded coach but this team has been extremely reliant on the talent of their 2 superstars' ability to manufacture points. Not a lot of plays diagrammed to get easy layups/dunks. They get stops and run for fastbreak dunks, pass the ball to Lebron and let him iso. Feed AD to left lower block and do his thing.
