Fox scoring at will tonight. Usually I like haliburton running the offense, but not tonight. He's struggling to make anything happen.

Cut out the turnovers and should be able to compete till the end

I'd love to see the stat for how many layups Barnes has given up tonight. I've counted at least 5 or 6. Not sure why he's not trying on defense or if he's scared of lebron

There's probably been about 4-5 questionable calls. Nothing crazy, but certainly helping keeping Lakers in this game.

Also kings love to kill themselves. Turnovers

Hard fought game anyways. Fox's last two games have been much improved, statistically and how he looks physically. Now we need consistency and reasoning for why he has looked like he has this year that makes sense other than personal bad habit

That illegal screen on sac, followed by monk illegal screen pushing jones with 2 hands for like 3 plays in a row.

But inexcusable to me. Fox with 30 but has played off ball most the game. He shoulda been driving like that non stop

Fox really ticking up the trade value now. Thinking Philly need to add picks now.

Anyway, LeBron is LeBron and we don't, nor do many other teams, have a #1 like him when the game is there to win.
Would have liked to see Fox be more aggressive in the last, but I think the rotations need to get him in early in the last and give him a break midway through. That way he and the team can see how the quarter is going. At the moment, he comes in midway through and has to rush things with 6mins left.
Hali needs to just shoot the damn ball. I know he missed a few tonight, but he is a good shooter and, as I've said before, the coaching staff should bench him for any shot he gives up. He's hurting the team when he does it. That is a negative on him, but he is doing it in a positive way, but any coaching staff, person can see it's better for a 40% shooter from range to take these shots.

Again, on D, they didn't switch as much, which was a terrific adjustment, but why on earth do you have Buddy guarding Monk? LeBron is too smart and he searched that switch out. How many times did they get that switch? That's all LeBron needs to get going and he will make the right read anyway. At least put Hali on Monk!
