That was definitely a shooting foul.


lol that's not how the rule works man. He was dribbling still, hadn't gathered....should've been on the floor.

Yeah but Jokic made it look like he was going to gather and he was. Lots of guards get that call all the time.

THT gets too much hate. Look at how many games he has played in his career. He's almost a rookie and still gets minutes on a deep contender

Denver was pretty mediocre apart from Jokic. They had no one going. Not taking anything away from LA, the defense was good, but there was a lot of wide open 3’s missed on Joker dishes. Not a great night for Denver.

Downlow where? Jokic makes AD look like a girl downlow lol


First let’s at least allow AD 10 games to get the rust out and back into playing shape. Because AD absolutely outplayed Jokic just 6 months ago.

Secondly...we are going to crow after a game it took 28 shots for Jokic to score 32? Lol


You're comparing Jokic as the franchise player vs AD who is a Robin behind Lebron. We all saw how AD does being Batman. AD on the Nuggets would make them remarkably worse.

And I wasn't going off just this game. It's been that way all season. Probably why Jokic is being seen as the MVP of the league.

If the Lakers fall just short of a championship, he will always be remembered as the guy they didn't want to trade for Lowry lol.

Pathetic outing by the nuggets. Just not a good matchup against Lakers cause of the bigs and the guards. If it’s 3/6 matchup, Lakers win in 5.

Jokic had 13 points the first time these teams met when AD played. Took him 28 shots to score 32 tonight. You can have MVP all you want, let’s see what happens in the playoffs where it really matters. Jokic hasn’t had much success against the Lakers.

It’s funny how quick Jokic defenders are to eliminating and ignoring the defensive side of the ball. It’s almost as if the game is only played on one end of the floor to them.

I were ready to give up this season man.
Dont feel like we have enough luck on our sides this season but oh well, surely we could put up a fight.

Last year of course Jokic was amazing but it was Murray gone nuts that gave the Lakers fit.

It's very odd that the Lakers have the defensive keys against the Nuggets that the Clippers just can't figure out. The Clippers have the tools to turn the conference upside down, but they can' execute. There's no reason for the Clippers to struggle so much against a matchup they should obviously win.

The Murray/Jokic ying yang was central to their matchup nightmare. Murray attacks the bigs that can matchup with Jokic and Jokic abused the (small) bigs that could stay in front of Murray. Lakers have AD so they are immune either way

it's not about keys, it's about personnel. the Clippers don't have bigs outside Zubac. and Zubac isn't agile enough to make Jokic work defensively and pick up fouls

the Lakers had 4 bigs last year if you include Lebron, and have 5 this year
