Gasol good as always.

Ibaka not so good, as always.

I never saw Gasol make that fadeaway jump shot once as a Raptor.

I know he's near the end of his career, but what Marc brings to the table is a lot harder to replace than what Serge does.

Marc shut out Zubac defensively, same way he deals with Embiid. And with all those passes i saw from Marc tonight, I can confidently say Lakers are better than the Clippers.

If Gasol continues to play like that I'm thinking he soon will have a second ring.

Yo....that compilation of gasol dimes is sick. Didn't catch the game but that shot was a masterclass of high post dishes.

The Lakers are unstoppable this year imo. I can see them making quick work of everyone in the playoffs. Like no more than 5 games per series. They'll be significantly better than last year. Upgraded at 4 roster spots and don't fall back at any. Gasol was a perfect piece for them.

I figured him and Lou would have chemistry like with Harrell but yah....Ibaka needs to get dimes sent his way and clippers lack that. I'm gonna miss the ibaka/Lowry two man game.

Man....at least he works hard and is well-liked by his teammates. It was a swing and a miss by our FO but I appreciate that he makes an honest effort. When u get that deep in the roster....it matters more that he contributes to the culture, practises hard and doesn't cause drama.

At least his body language is good when he's on the floor.

Seeing Ibaka vs Gasol play against each other really pissed me off infinitely.

So many of you guys are like oh they're old etc. Over the hump. We made the right move.

uh... no we didn't.

Literally Gasol is now starting for the current champs and Ibaka for the Clips (which where the 3rd best team in the west).

I am really pissed off by the moves we made to gain cap space for what now looks to be Rudy Gobert OR Oladipo.

Gasol looked amazing btw.

playing with Bron and AD helps, he was asked to do too much here. Glad he moved on and has much better chance to win the chip

21 mins, 1-5 (1-2 from 3) for 3 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 turnovers and 3 fouls. -16. Amazing?
9. Similarly, IF THOU HAST SPENT the entire offseason predicting that thy team will stink, thou shalt not gloat, nor even be happy, shouldst thou turn out to be correct. Realistic analysis is fine, but be a fan first, a smug smarty-pants second.
