Not expecting much from this game, to be sure. Even if the Bucks have a losing record.

Does anyone else think it's weird to see Carmelo Anthony as the starting power forward?

Westbrook has got to be better, and there’s no way around it. Dude is making north of 40 million. He wasn’t brought in to be a role player who just “fits in”, he supposed to be giving this team All Star level production. A 14.9 PER, 49.8 TS%, and -2.6 BPM isn’t going to cut it.
Numbers rule the universe.

Westbrook will never be the player that we want him to be. He simply cannot figure it out. This is why KD, Harden, Melo, Paul George all left his ass.

Jesus, Carmelo tried hard to give that bucket away to the Bucks. Lazy ass doesn't even want to bother to move

Lakers were playing well in the last eight minutes of the half, but were lacking in finesse/coordination. The Bucks played better and got the crowd going.

It's crazy that Giannis has 28 points in only 16 minutes. The LA coaching staff needs to go back to the drawing board.

I knew this **** was going to happen... Too predictable. Might turn this off if we keep sucking in the 3rd.

Another trash performance in that second quarter. No defense and couldn't score en route to getting outscored 34-21. Also getting outscored in the paint again tonight 36-22. Same ****, different day.

I just realized that Giannis already has 28 points in the first half, two more than his season average. I just don't think this team is gonna figure it out defensively this year.

Who's going to give this one away?.... it's a battle of an underachiever team and an overhyped one.

Seriously, it's been a decent game other than having to watch Westbrook and Melo out there. Davis is showing some fight and THT is showing LeBron his trade value.

Well, that unit was able to string together some stops, but couldn't score and find themselves trailing again.
