Davis is the only one of that group under 30. The Pacers have one player over 30. Will the Lakers start out a little faster tonight?

And now Davis is out with a fever. Starters are Jordan, James, Bradley, Horton-Tucker, Westbrook.

Only the first two of that group are shooting over .450.

Everywhere the Lakers go, there seems to be a Holiday.

LeBron going one on one. No ball movement, no screens.

Dribbled out the clock twice and couldn't get the shot both times... Once against a C... The other against a Stretch PF.

I like that LeBron seems committed to setting solid picks, and I like that Melo is scoring in the ways we're used to seeing LeBron score... But beyond that, LeBron really isn't adding much, Westbrook plays like he's the only one on the court... DAJ is useless beyond a couple lobs a game, which is kind of a shame because he seems to still have tons of bounce left in him...

Lol what defense. Allowing another 60+ points in the first half on 52% from the field.

They are even worst on defense. Did you see that last play of the Pacers ending in a corner three?. Watch Wesbrook and Melo pointing without doing anything no even try to rotate they are laughable on defense. Even Vogel who is a really good defensive coach can't do miracles.

Those three DJ, Melo and Westbrook are the antiwinning basketball. The thing is that we know this years ago,

Can always count on AD missing games or being mentally checked out most of the times he’s actually playing. I pray to god this guy is not here when Lebron finally retires.

Really not sure what bounce you see from DJ. Dude moves like there’s cement in his sneakers.

He's slow, but when he goes up for an oop his head is near the rim... I don't really understand it myself.

My goodness, they started the quarter with about four straight stops, yet couldn't score after any of them :lol:

Yeah... But you can say Melo sucks on D a million times a game and still be right... So what's the point... Yes, all those guys are non existent on Defense, but at least Melo's Offensive game is working and seems to happen within the flow of the offense...

DJ has no offense and Westbrook is playing his own game most of the time...

The Pacers do not have that much talent, relatively speaking, but they are well coached. When they shoot, it looks like they will score. They rotate efficiently on defense.

The Lakers have all the talent in the world, but not yet look like a well-coached team. I keep seeing confusion on both ends of the court. It does not help that their leading player has missed so many games. That makes the process that much harder.

Westbrook can get tunnel vision sometimes. Precisely why I do not like THT playing next to him. You need primarily catch and shoot players playing next to this bum.

Vogel's days are numbered. They won't blame it on Rob and the dumb acquisitions they made over the summer.
