We really suck. It may be time for Vogel to go.

So sad to think that LeBron's elbow to Stewart's head started the highlight of the season for the Lakers so far...

99 points thru three quarters for a Pistons team that averages 98/game on the season, and these guys are the worst-shooting team in the league from the field and from behind the arc :lol: :nonono:

Wow, Lakers actually defending when it matters the most, and not chucking threes to get back into the game.

Some energy in the team post LeBron ejection. It take Howard making 2 3's to win against a 4 win team.

I’ll never thumb my nose at a win, but this team HAS to make a move if they want to compete for a title. My preference is still Myles Turner, but I wouldn’t be mad at putting in a call about Jerami Grant.

See I can't really get too giddy with this win because it was against the Pistons. These guys showed a different side to them that nobody has seen. I don't get why it took them so long to show this side of them. Who in the locker room is getting these guys motivated? Is Vogel too soft spoken back there that it lulls them to sleep? Again, I need to see this energy against a legit top tier team before I can say we're turning a page.

Best defensive formation by the Lakers this season so far. When the King is threatened they fight and defend.

Dude's just a bleeder... He got caught for sure, but that's like way more damage than their should have been, and it looks like someone got him in the mouth trying to keep him out of trouble.

I watched the replay...that was a vicious back slap to the head. No wonder the guy was so incensed. (Not that that excuses his charging all over the court like a mad bull.)

I said it a few days ago: LeBron is playing like an angry man. He needs to buckle down and pay attention to the details at both ends of the court. It seems like his emotions are getting in the way of his game. They certainly did tonight.

I know Isiah has a lot of dog in him but he just went rabid there. He’s going to cop a dozen game suspension or something for his reaction, especially considering the history of that arena.

I missed this damn only highlights.

I hope this fires the rest of the team to start actually playing defense and wanting to win games:)

Only thing entertaining about this game was Stewart losing it.

I gotta give Russ credit: he was amazing in the fourth quarter. We need that Westbrook every night. He actually did real basketball things too like setting screens and cutting off the ball. Davis fed him three times for layups in the fourth quarter because he cut hard.
