What are your thoughts on the first Lakers pre-season game of 2017 versus the Minnesota Timberwolves? The guys must do what well to get the win? Which opposing player(s) should Purple and Gold be careful of? Will the game be up-and-down type or more slow paced? How many assists will Lonzo Ball have & how many points will Kyle Kuzma rack up?

I'm kind of glad Lopez isn't playing, because with Nance & Randle starting it'll give Kuzma more minutes at the 4 and probably the 3. If Lakers get their wish next offseason they won't be able to afford Randle and I think Kuzma is a better overall player between 3 of them anyway, and should be Lakers starting PF of the future. Lopez sitting gives Kuzma opportunity to show against real NBA players that what he did in SL wasn't a fluke or because of lesser competition.

Also hope to see Bryant get some minutes - curious what that kid can do on both ends of the floor. I have a pretty good idea about Zo & BI in terms of play level, but I'm hoping Kuzma & Bryant surprise some people.

I have a feeling this game is going to be sloppy as hell. Lots of turnovers, disorganized offense. Luke said they haven't implemented any of the half-court sets, so there might be some uncertainty and standing around when they are in the half-court.

The Lakers do not intend to play slowed down basketball. Everything will be a fast break including half court sets. Smile

I see your point about Kuzma getting some playing time, but I’m really looking forward to seeing how they utilize Lopez offensively. I know he is going to be that guy they can kick out to ad he trails on the fast breaks. I think he can be extremely effective if they play him at the elbow like Memphis does with Gasol. He can shoot, kick out to shooters or find guys cutting to the basket. As far as minutes for Kuzma, my hope is that the second unit is made up of a front court of Kuzma, Deng and Nance. Kuz could play the three offensively and the four on defense, but all three guys could switch like crazy. Could be extremely effective on both sides of the ball.

Want to see how Zu runs the floor. Now that it's been reported that he's down to 8% body fat.

I hope Ball and Kusma make the Lakes fun to watch again: BI should also make the game exciting

Defense at the rim and rebounding is the most evident thus far...

The Wolves has presence and two threes from Gibson and Towns. Zu has been the difference bringing some balance to the Lakers delivery in the last few minutes.

The bench is kicking butt- by far outclassing Minny's reserves.

If he plays like this going forward, it will be interesting to see how minutes play out between him ,Lopez and Bogut .
