He’s been insanely sharp on defense these 2 games.

He’s making really high level reads and actually moving.

Offensively... not so much.

Vogel gave AD a 6 minute rest then decides to throw out a lineup without Lebron or AD? They barely have anybody who can even dribble out there...

Of course the Jazz scored a quick 4 points in about 30 seconds, then Vogel decides to put AD in right away.

Davis needs to be better on the block if they're gonna go to him there so often. He's fading on basically everything.

Is Vogel planning on putting LeBron back in this half? There's 3 minutes left.

AD at the 5. Pick and roll with LeBron leads to dunk, then out runs Gobert down the floor for an and 1. Space matter so much.

AD never was a good shooter. This is gonna be a problem for this season.

The Cousins injury was a lot bigger than people think. While his shooting regressed last season, he was hitting 36% on 6 attempts from 3 the two years before. He might've transitioned into a Brook Lopez type stretch 5 role that would've allowed AD to play the 5 on offense and the 4 on defense like he wants to.

LeBron is a shell of what he used to be physically, but it's crazy how he's still easily a far better offensive player than Davis. Lakers couldn't do ANYTHING with Davis and no LeBron...LeBron comes in, and they instantly go on a run, with LeBron getting a layup in transition and setting up Davis for two more easy layups.

I still think LeBron is one of the very best players in the league, he's been forgotten about since not making the playoffs last year and his physical decline.

Lakers starting the third with AD at the 5 again. So much more space.

Lebron has sure blown a bunch of easy finishes this year.

AD at the 5 hnngggggg

This lineup with Kuz instead of Caruso should be the Lakers' best lineup.

Avery Bradley has been a really pleasant surprise so far.

Defense looks real good when not playing the Clippers. If Lebron turns back into Lebron at some point they might just be able to ISO rock fight with those 2 guys into being a good playoff team.

Danny Green is such an impressive defender.

I wanna see what an inverted Davis-LeBron pick and roll looks like. AD can handle the ball.

You know LeBron is old when he passes on the fast break for the other guy to score rather than to get a lob back.

Spent the quarter playing small and Lebron showed some life on offense. Yay!

With Kuzma back will be a lot better to not give up as much size with 3 guards.
