That was a helluva win.

Playoff previewish with LeBron and AD overwhelming the game.

Lakers are gonna be the no. 1 seed.

Good win.

I'm not sold that we're going to have the #1 seed. The schedule is tough, and the Clipper eventually have an easier one. But I'm fine if they have the #1 and we have the #2. Doesn't matter. Just don't want to drop to #3. :)

Won a major game, so I'm happy tonight. Great game. Denver looked for real. They may be better that the Clippers. I watched the Clips vs Philly last night & they are no super team. I think Toronto is better. They take nights off or something. I haven't been watching their games because the announcers suck & they piss me off. But I think I'm going to. Every time I have turned them on, they look like shit. ---Yohe

This thing says the Lakers have played a more difficult schedule than the Clips so far and have an easier one the rest of the way.

Youíre seeing ghosts. ;)

And Tatum slapped Kawhi around tonight and now itís a 5-game lead.

Can't wait for these "road trips."

Because when the Lakers are this good, they're all home games. And you add in the LeBron stans in the Eastern Conference.


The Lakers have won 17 games in a row against Western Conference teams on the road. To put this in perspective, outside of the Clippersí loss on opening night (Clippers home game!), the Lakers havenít lost another road game this season to a Western Conference team.

They own a record of 23-5. The most wins in the NBA and the best record in the NBA.

Apparently the Lakers were interested in signing Reggie Jackson before he chose the Clips.

My comments are in the Clippers thread. I'm okay with this, though he will have some flash at times with the Clippers

rumor has it that Kuzma is staying put. And with Marcus Morris to the Clips, not many other options. Maybe Marcus' twin brother?


apparently Markieff Morris' contract has ben bought out and the Lakers are the frontrunners. So the Lakers/Clips could be a family feud as well.

Getting the lesser Morris and keeping Kuz >> Better Morris.

Well played by Pelinka.

Hopefully more wing minutes jumpstart Kuzma.

Still would like a backup point.

they're releasing Demarcus Cousins. So jared Dudley and Troy Daniels are safe.

Kieff has a chance to be a good pick up. Marcus was more of a lock, and rid us of the issue of whether Kuzma was a sink hole. But Kieff has a chance of good bang for the back.

I don't know if there's a back up PG of enough gravity that allows the team to toss Rondo. That was the added benefit of Collison.

I do like seeing Bradley play better in Jan-Feb. Good part to the depth and giving Vogel options for various match up. Would really like to see him be steady on Sunday against his old team.

Itís really as simple as benching Rondo and playing Caruso his minutes if this was a simulation.

But real people and egos complicate all that. Rondo needs to get hurt to get out of the way.

And thatís not to say Caruso can create in the non-LeBron minutes, but no one on the roster can. If Cook could be the guy he was for the Dubs last spring, that would be it, but heís been godawful too.

Well, they overcame Tatum having a career game. A big win.

Needed that win. With Kemba out and it being at Staples, that would have been a tough loss.

Some of the rotations Vogel went with late were... odd. Worked out, kinda.

Nice for the Celtics to have Tatum on the bench so long in the 4th after the crazy 3rd, and then not getting his well into the offensive mix once he returned until kinda late.

This would be an interesting Finals if the teams are healthy, and watching the teams adjust. Not sure if I'd rather face the Bucks, Raptors or Celtics in terms of which is the better match up for us. Of course we have to get there first. ;)
