I like Pope but I would make that deal in a minute. Bet Houston would trade for him. He won a NBA title for us.--Yohe

Ariza's going to Washington instead. Or maybe not.

Back-to-back, three road games in 4 days as we travel up the East Coast.

These are all mediocre-to-awful teams. But they also are collectively 22-22 at home (held down by the Nets awful 5-10 home record), while 15-28 on the road.

We are 11-4 at home, and 6-7 on the road.

It would be nice to go 2-2 on this trip. We're already 0-1, so that means two out of the remaining three.

Need to bring it today. The last two games are against the easy teams on the trip. But one is the back end of the back-to-back. Really need to focus on this one.

I can see the Nets taking one over the Lakers. They're better than their record shows.

Watching it back now.

Probably best performance of Lonzo’s career considering Kemba.

First teammates to get triple-doubles since 07 and first Lakers since Magic & Kareem. Wow.

I expect two wins.

Back-to-backs suck.

and they did. Guess D'angelo Russell had this game on his calendar.

Javale’s illness actually hurt.

Genuinely surprised they lost both.

Now they have to reintegrate Rondo and Ingram as the whispers about traders get turnt up.

Looked good last night. If Zubac is going to play like that every night....they are going to have to change their thinking. Maybe it was just James turning him into a player, but Zubac's conditioning & body looks improved. He looked for real last night.---Yohe

seemed the purpose of last night besides the win, was to recruit Anthony Davis for next year. And it may have worked.

Can't lose to the Grizzzzz after a shitty road trip. They needed to win this heading into the Dubs game. Fuck...

There's a sad reason why Michael Beasley hasn't been with the team in weeks:

That's terrible news.

What an interesting game. They lead by 19. Lebron has a groin injury. Warriors almost make the comeback. But somehow Lakers win in a blowout. National TV Rondo played a key role in preserving the win.

I was real impressed with Zubac. Making the most of his minutes. I hope there's a role for him in the long-term, Davis or no Davis.

They answered the bell.

Progress.

My expectations remain WCF.

Rondo out for a month with a sprained finger. So pressure's on Zo now.

Bron is out too, but day-to-day. Should be an important span of games to see how the young ones play.
