Both teams were tired, but the Mavs played like ass. The game wasn't pretty, but at least the Lakers didn't miss gimmes.

The next mavs-lakers game is also a back to back game. Mavs were extremly tired, Lakers were also tired but looked more energetic. Only 4 players, all Lakers had a good game and Lebron was not even trying... Hopefully the next match up will be more exciting and energetic.

The Lakers were probably more motivated as well since they lost to the mavs in the last matchup.

9-5 in the “difficult December” with a couple of injury games. Not too bad.

LAKERS ARE 2-0 WHEN KOBE ATTENDS A GAME

and Mavs are 2-0 when Dirk attends like he did the last Lakers game.
I can only shudder when they both attend the same Laker vs Mavs game in less than 2 weeks

Game goes into Quadruple OT before the NBA decides that Dirk Kobe will decide the game by playing 1-on-1.

Mark Jackson really said the Lakers don't have that guy (LeBron) who can dominate in the PnR in a 7 game series.

It’s the best in the league, they just never use it. If that was their primary offense they’d blow every team out by 30
[–]Heat DydoDeChamp 43 指標 1小時前
Literally just play KCP/Green/Lebron/Kuz/AD.
Kuz, KCP, green stand at 3 pt line
Spam Lebron/AD PnR into oblivion...win every game.

It's like the KD and Curry PnR all over again.
[–]Thunder HPK_OKC 60 指標 2小時前
Exactly. Both players are too smart not to put the defense in a compromising position, and even if you play it right, they’re more talented than you anyway so it just doesn’t matter
[–]Lakers michaelcabardo 80 指標 2小時前
I'd say they're saving it for the playoffs. The fewer films available that teams could prepare for, the better.
[–]Lakers Xc0liber 4 指標 34 分鐘前
True that. They will try the pnr once a while just to see if they still got it. Sneaky
[–]Thunder HPK_OKC 61 指標 2小時前
I don’t even think teams could plan for it without just absolute junk defense that would cause them to totally sell out on KCP or DG.
I mean how long did Stockton and Malone run P R? A decade? You knew what they were gonna do, but just because you know it doesn’t mean you can stop it lol
[–]Heat Saltmore1 9 指標 1小時前
Teams can't even gameplan the Doncic-Kleber PNR and he spams that 10x a game. It's just way to difficult stop a PNR from someone with great court vision.
[–]porkchopmc 19 指標 1小時前
They also stagger their minutes while using that to limit them.
Wait till the playoffs when the rotation shrinks and brown and Davis are going full throttle all game

[–]Knicks FlowseL 24 指標 1小時前
This shit has happened basically every year since returning to Cleveland. Comes out hot to start the season, sets the tone, chills out for a couple months and some mid-season drama happens leading to a revamp of the roster come the trade deadline, then he ramps it up for the last couple months of the season then kicks it into another gear for the playoffs.

KCP looking like a more serviceable 3 and D player than Danny Green
Kuzma looking like me on offense and actually okay on defense
LeBron with less points than Dwight

KCP's been more than serviceable. He's been playing like an ideal starter.
[–]Lakers Velo_cityy 6 指標 1小時前
True, but I rather have him as the 2nd unit, so him and Kuzma can carry while our stars rest.
[–]Lakers chad12341296 42 指標 2小時前
I’ve always thought that if KCP was on the Rockets we’d be hearing about how he’s the best role player in the world
[–]Lakers RVA_Rooster[ ] 26 指標 2小時前
On a night when LeBron scoring only 13 points, Kuzma goes 0-7, and we have 16 turnovers...we still won with tenacious defense, all but nullifying KP, and our bench bailing us out again along with AD.
All in all, I'm most glad Luka is ok. And I hope nothing is wrong with THJ.
[–][LAL] Marcelo Huertas henstobs11 78 指標 2小時前
That was about as meh as you'd expect from both teams playing off of a b2b.
Both defenses were good. Hope THJ recovers quick and Luka is fine. Bron would've beat his 16 assists last night if Kuz hadn't missed all those OPEN layups and the usual shooters bricking 3s.

You serious? He was putting up great assist numbers his whole career!
Making insane passes ever since he’s been in the league.
He’s been one of the best playmakers for awhile now.

I know Rick doesn't want to talk about it.. But Lakers were just putting Danny Green on Porzingis. I mean, wouldn't it be a great idea to give him some post looks? Especially when nothing was going in their offense.
[–]Mavericks rvadarocket 10 指標 2小時前
No because KP would’ve failed miserably lol.
He’s too tall and lanky for the post, just doesn’t have the center of gravity for it.
Green would’ve stolen his lunch money
[–][DAL] Nick Van Exel pm_me_books_you_like 5 指標 2小時前
The number of uncontested dunks they had on us was just obscene...people say we need wing defense but we’re also vulnerable to teams with multiple dominant bigs, like the Lakers. We need both another wing defender and a guy who can guard strong 5’s.
Not that this could/would happen but Draymond would be perfect here.
