Ingram was invisible that 2nd half.
[–][LAL] Brandon Ingram LaVarZoNoBall 18 指標 2小時前
Kinda hard for him when he’s literally the only player who could create his own shot. No one else on that team can help take the pressure off him
[–]Pelicans trombonepick [分數隱藏] 7 分鐘前
NAW and Zion can help take the pressure off of him a bit, but we don't have a PG who is good at shot creation for him atm.

Complete opposite of his first half performance where he couldn't miss
[–]Lakers 00DPark_ 74 指標 2小時前
Vogel was like “alright Imma stop playing around” then he put AD on Ingram and it was a wrap.
[–]Lakers Zurdo112 269 指標 2小時前
AD said fun is over and clamped him up.

The Lakers 2nd half defense was ultra good tonight. Like they actually tried
[–]NBA Snatch-Daddy 78 指標 3小時前
This is the difference between a championship team and a rookie one. Lakers just dominated that second half.
[–][CHI] Derrick Rose jeric13xd 146 指標 2小時前
That started in the 2nd quarter. Y'all decided to try and that 15pt deficit was cut to 1 lol. Bron can just pick and choose whatever he wants to do to takeover the game

Good job on ref on giving a T to lebron. That just wake the whole lakers up
[–][LAL] Stu Lantz CutLonzosHair2017 78 指標 2小時前
Honestly that was on the Pelicans more than our effort. They kept committing dumb fouls.
[–]Lakers zechef1 22 指標 3小時前
Pelicans are the Wolves of a few years ago. Always SPOOKY but never actually end up good
[–]Lakers motorboat_mcgee 15 指標 3小時前
Is it me, or is it a bad idea to play Zion and Adams together? Felt like the lane was clogged every time Zion tried to operate in the paint. Also why is there no pick and roll being run with Zion/BI?
[–]KnickedUp 8 指標 3小時前
Zion puts up stats but he doesnt have his fingerprints on the game. The anti Lebron
[–]Lemonjello23 47 指標 2小時前
From competitive to blowout in a matter of minutes

Lakers went on a 21-3 run to start the fourth IIRC. That switch is real
[–][TOR] Pascal Siakam MazKhan 9 指標 3小時前
They were actually down 15 at one point lol, weirdly enough I was still very confident they'd win this game. The second half defense was insane
[–]Knicks KDL2000 87 指標 3小時前
Lakers have the best defense in the league imo. It’s saying something when former DPOY Marc Gasol looks like their worst defender even tho he isn’t that bad.
[–]Supersonics Historical-Author-49 53 指標 3小時前
They have the #1 defensive rating right now, so you're probably right.
[–]Lakers davensdad 34 指標 2小時前
Dennis Schroder man! What a great defender at the point guard position. Lock down.
[–]Lakers zuuu34 25 指標 3小時前
Coach Vogel is one of the best coaches in the league.
[–]Lakers zuuu34 61 指標 3小時前
This game is why Vogel deserves to be in COTY conversations
[–]Lakers Zurdo112 20 指標 3小時前
Best team in the league. Too much versatility and there’s not really a weakness on defense that teams will be able to pick on come playoff time. And now the offense is even better than last year with more depth. I love this team.

This game went from Brandon Ingram going 100% FG looking to put up 50 pts, then it was like a 20 pt blowout. Just slow grind on defense, Pelicans turnovers, Lakers heating up from 3.
edit: Caruso went 3-3 from 3, wtf that dude is a good shooter this season now?
[–]Lakers Aufrodisiac 82 指標 2小時前*
He's over 50% from 3 on 2.5 attempts per game. I dont know if its forreal, but he and KCP(53% on 3.5 att/g) have been so good from 3 so far.
EDIT: These numbers are probably better after tonight.
[–]Lakers AkenoHimejima 11 指標 2小時前
Yep he’s shooting much greater now, 58.3% though a small sample size with 24 attempts, could regress to 45-50 i think throughout the season
[–]Lakers davensdad 17 指標 2小時前
He was good from 3 his sophomore year with us, but somehow regressed last year. He continued to be our key role player with his defence and passing.
Thankfully, he has regained his shooting touch, perhaps even better than ever. Just an elite role player. Frankly, for a championship team, Alex > Lonzo.
[–]Lakers Zurdo112 45 指標 2小時前
He’s gonna get paid if he hits FA.... I hope we can keep him.
[–]Lakers ubiasedhoodfriend 26 指標 2小時前
He will probably return on like 8-10 mil a year
[–]Lakers Zurdo112 13 指標 2小時前
I can see him getting $12m-$15m on the market. He’s already an elite level defender and if he keeps hitting the three ball at that clip.... 8-10 would be a steal. I’d do that in a heartbeat but I can see teams throwing money at him.
[–]Lakers bambiface 61 指標 2小時前
Kuz and Caruso worked on their 3 point game during the break. I'm glad to see that their hard work is paying off.
[–]JetGan 370 指標 2小時前*
When KCP shoots the ball now, I expect it to go in. Dude has become ELITE

Lebron still in chill mode getting a 20 pt 10 assist game, didn't force anything this game
[–]PCarrollRunballon1 27 指標 2小時前
It’s crazy that throughout Lebron’s career people were trying to speculate what star would be best with Lebron. A dominant big just makes his job so much easier. Wish he played with Marc in his prime .
[–]Rockets sd1414 130 指標 3小時前
LeBron might legit coast to an MVP.
[–]Lakers RishiSunak 68 指標 3小時前
He'll have the wins but not the stats, but if the narrative is on his side then maybe they end up giving it to him.
[–]lakernation21 62 指標 3小時前
Would be crazy if he wins 5th mvp 5th ring and 5th finals mvp this year lol

Lebron might as well come off the bench and add 6MOTY to his trophy case.
[–]tipytopmain 9 指標 2小時前
He'll do that when Bronny is in the league.
[–]Mavericks Drfuckthisshit 23 指標 3小時前
This lakers team could potentially three peat. AD and bron ain't even trying
[–]sanpompon 5 指標 2小時前
I think an injury to Bron or vets chasing rings in Brooklyn are the only certain threats. Outside of that, the organization is just doing too good at roster construction for it to be anything other than wear and tear on the team leaders or superhuman efforts by the few other contenders. Because the minutes just keep passing, the young guns are getting better, and the chemistry is just building up.

Leading rebounder Kyle Kuzma???
[–][LAL] Brandon Ingram xElectricW 113 指標 2小時前
He had 11 last game I think, all of a sudden he's Rodman
[–]Lakers nitrousconsumed 193 指標 2小時前
As we all predicted Kyle Kuzma was the rebound leader in a game w Zion and AD and Trez.
[–]Lakers davensdad 37 指標 2小時前
His rebounding effort has been insane this season. I'm so proud of him.
[–]Lakers Heor326 106 指標 3小時前
Kuz is really filling out his role well. Great shooting, great rebounding, and great defense.
[–]Knicks whyallthefire 45 指標 2小時前
Kuz just can't hit 2s now
[–]Lakers bambiface 42 指標 2小時前
LOL. I'm fine with that since he also got better on defense and rebounding.
[–][LAL] Luke Walton IzzyIzumi 11 指標 2小時前
Yeah he keeps his interior passing instead of shooting? I can live with that. Trezz can do that dunker duty.
[–]blancs50 13 指標 2小時前
Trez was focused on boxing out & did a great job. This was a concern before the season & early on, but he's definitely improved his box out game.

Scary how the Lakers can just turn it on anytime they want
[–]Lakers ssvpvq 33 指標 2小時前
I remember the Warriors during their dominant days. When 3rd quarter hits, you know the opposing team's lead will disappear no matter how big it was.
[–]entropy328 79 指標 2小時前
Lakers gonna be scary when they are playing 100%..they blowing out teams right now and half the game it looks like they are even really trying.
[–]Lakers prodigymix 48 指標 2小時前
To be fair we've had a fairly easy schedule thus far and we've lost against some of the better teams we've played. As the defending champs I would expect us to be blowing out some of the teams we have... but I'm also impressed because it definitely looks like we're out here coasting through games.
I'm excited for some of our tougher upcoming games now that it looks like we're starting to mesh well and when we really turn it on we're amazing and fun as hell to watch.
[–]Lakers dreezyyyy 9 指標 1小時前
The thing is that we were not blowing out teams to this extent last season even during the easy stretches of our schedule.
