I see it diferent. Lakers are just missing some wide wide open shots. There have been 4 or 5 corner 3s all by themselves that they just couldn't hit. LeBron had a layup miss too a moment ago.

Given Toronto is a very good defensive squad, I think the Lakers are doing OK on offense. Not great, but definitely not awful.

Kuzma might want to have a bad game or two... dude started making points and now is just taking stupid shots even more.

Four bricks from three by Danny Green. All wide open.

This Lakers defense is REALLY suffocating. Their rotations are on point. They remind me of the 2019 Raptors in a way.

Green will be useful in the playoffs. When he is on fire he's the type of guy who can give you a tough win even against a difficult opponent.

Lakers defense has been really, really good after that bad 10-0 start.

Otto Porter has a chronic hip injury. He's also worse than Green

His injury problems the past couple years are concerning, but not sure Green is better

His man d has fallen off, still a good overall team defender though and very good in transition and hands

But I wonder what we could get for DG, 1st, and filler.

Kuzma is becoming what we need, a good wing defender, who can also score (just hope his shot selection doesn't get out of control)

Josh Richardson will be available after the season due to Philly's tax problems

It's not the time to think about potential trades, tho

Fun game. Defensive battle out there.

Gonna be tough to watch KCP and Green brick wide open shots in the playoffs.

Shooting could definitely be an issue in the playoffs. KCP was on such a good streak during the season which is why it sucks the break cut that momentum short. Green hasn't been reliable all year.

JR is clearly unplayble on defense. Just to many mistakes

The bench has been carrying them offensively the last 2 games now. Not sure if its legit or just a small sample. Dion is def a great pickup tho

His poor rotations and constant falling asleep were one of the biggest reasons we were such a godawful defensive team in 2018. I'm not expecting him to turn that around even under Vogel.

This Raptors defense has been suffocating against stars all season. Theyve locked down all the top players at this point
