Efficiency of Kuzma, Drummond & Harrell is the only thing keeping the Lakers in this game. Those 3 guys have 30 points on 20 shots. The rest of their team is 9 for 31 for 19 pts.

Rui has looked very solid, especially on defense.

Of course, Rui dunks a ball on AD and it has to be an offensive foul. LeBron does that 25 times a year. No call.

Russ playing a great game so far. Almost another triple double and 0 TOs!

Exactly what I was thinking. It’s not that it WASN’T an offensive foul. It’s that, if another player does that (one from a great team), they marvel at the spectacle of it. When a Wizards player does it, let’s microanalyze it for potential fouls before getting excited.

Blowing them off the floor despite DB3 missing everything he puts up. Running them off the floor. The Ish factor. Don't always love his game, but can't argue with the pace.

Lensanity playing the entire quarter and he's earned it.

I guess the big lineup only worked in the first quarter. Overall, the backcourt of Schroeder and KCP has combined for 10 points on 3-of-13 shooting.

Bertans has money on the Lakers, apparently.

Got to love when scrubs like Ben McLemore keep the opposing team in the game.

13 up at the end of 3, but we know it's going to go down to the wire.

Or will it?

Gotta make those open 3's.

Westbrook has been brilliant finding Len just after his man leaves him to double someone else.

The Wizards’ guards are prone to play hero ball. That’s not going to beat teams that get to the rim easily.


Not sure what that means. They are the Lakers without LeBron and they don't have great guard play. This is the game where we really need Lopez.

It means I was wrong! :-)
I think they should Trade Beal

One team has a ton more energy than the other. The scientific term is The Westbrook Effect.

Bertans bricks one after another, & we still extend the lead!!! Up by 19? This is fun.
