: : : : : : : Let's pump the brakes. They have played 8 games. They have been in virtually every game down to the end. The have had players out on suspension. The GM assembled an unbalenced roster with weak outside shooting and isoft defenders. It would take any coach several months to get the best out of this group.
: : : : : : The three point shooting is about league average since Rondo left the starting lineup. It's not costing the Lakers as much as the lineups are.
: : : : : : The team may have no one to box out so Luke is off the hook there. However, the defensive game planning and sub patterns are clueless - only the awful Atlanta Hawks have tried more 5-man lineups. Even if Luke does know what he's doing, its not apparent by watching his team.
: : : : : : He doesn't understand that multiple players who are ball-dominant, but who don't often score on assists will have no chemistry in halfcourt. Currently the Lakers are last in the league in halfcourt points per possession.
: : : : : : Ingram on CJ McCollum tomorrow with Kuzma at the 3? Get ready for a "rout of this world".
: : : : : Very solid prediction. Lakers slipped in the end ruining your rout prediction, but you were close.
: : : : I had the Lakers getting blown out, lol...Rondo and McGee saved this game.
: : : : Tonight's win was not sustainable. The team will never make the playoffs if Ingram continues to start with LeBron and Kuzma. Lakers can get away with Kuzma on Green tomorrow, but going forward LA must go smaller.
: : : : Rondo and the bench won this game, the starting lineup was outscored by 10 overall. Any lineup with Ingram guarding SG was awful, aside from the first few minutes of each half when he had fresh legs. CJ and Lillard got the shots they wanted, but they weren't falling (4-17), even though many of their threes were great looks.
: : : :Rondo better shooter and better defender period. Ball soft...
: : Rondo, LeBron, and Ingram are awful together. Whenever BI or LeBron have the ball they would be going 4-on-5.
: : Watch more film! No one guards Rondo once he gives up the ball.
: Then take Ingram out of the equation and start Rondo,Ingram has 7 assists in 6 games ,he isnít a willing passer.
: Lebron and Rondo 2 man game late in the 4th vs Portland worked well together.
:Put him on the bench .
