Not feeling too good about this game. If Zach LaVine got hot against our defense, Wood and Harden are going to torch us...

Edit: Forgot about John Wall too... :banghead:

This is going to be a tough one. Im sure Vegas has the Lakers as the under by about 6 points i think those guys are coming after us after what we did to them in the playoffs and wall and harden and tucker are gonna be vicious.
Stay humble
Don't assume anything
Play hard
Win the championship

Yeah, a loss wouldn't surprise me at all. But when I expect that, the Lakers usually surprise me.

But judging by the early signs of this season, based on motivation and chemistry, we are not the favourites of the next two games. Although we're playing against an under .500 team. If our shots and FTs(most importantly lol) fall in, we're in great shape.

Would you start Wes and Caruso to counter their guard threat, and bring Schroeder off the bench for this one?

Lakers seem to have taken Wood's AD challenge kinda personally.. best defensive 4 mins played so far this season. I think they're gonna force AD to get a 40 piece tonight.

No love lost from Boogie. I don't think Morris should have been ejected.

THT 2 fouls with less than 10 seconds left. THT was also the reason they got the ball back (but it should have been Lebron or Kuzma going for the rebound after the free throw)

Agreed. Fantastic defense from Caruso.

No complaints about Morris decision.

And Boogie on the way out now.. lol

His swipe on Harden with 2 seconds to go was a legal steal IMO. Harden's today's MJ in the eyes of the refs.

How many ejections for DMC this season so far? I think this may be his 3rd

Cousins still in the game. Morris probably still in the game too if he didn't follow Cousins down the court. Or just wait till the next rebound to give Cousins a shove.

KCP's defense has been sorely missed.
