How will the Lakers do in the game against the Denver Nuggets . The guys must do what well to get the victory? Which opposing player(s) should L.A. be careful of? Will the game be up-and-down type or more slow paced?

With Lopez and Hart, and possibly Bogut out. About the same as they did against Wolves. Lol

Lavar needs to get the head coaching position.

I'm wondering how long before fans turn on Walton. Sure he hasn't had the greatest talent to work with but their hasn't been that much improvement from a system point of view.

I think he's trying to run a system like GS, ball movement and help defense. But unfortunately he doesn't have players on that talent level yet.

Think coaches are only as good as talent they have, so I see Luke at least finishing out his contract. Think FO will want to see how he is with star FA's ( if that dream happens).

Lol come on. They had 3 practices with mostly new players, and as Walton said, didn't install any of the half-court offense. So it was basically them throwing the ball side to side and running around. I'm not saying he's going to be here for 15 years, but people should at least wait until they've actually installed an offense before coming to judgements.

I'm not basing what I said from 3 games. Nor am I coming to judgement. Are you going to dispute the defensive sets are atrocious, that rebounding got worse or the offense was a mess at times last season? All teams have new players every off season, it's not much of an excuse. This is not the triangle they are trying to learn.

I completely agree but the sign of a good/great coach is getting the best out of the players at your disposal. Creating a system to fit them, not trying to force players into a system that doesn't work. Using the example of help defense, when your roster doesn't have defensive talent like Green and Thomson it shouldn't be hard to realize it might not work.

True, but we're Green and Thompson that good on defense at same age as core. Personally I don't think they're that great now one on one, they just know how to switch and help out.

Agree a good/great coach gets the best out of players, but I think these players and coach are both a work of progress.

Denver is not known for defense which means the Lakers, and Ball, will have more fast break opportunities. The Lakers rebounded reasonably well last game and I predict they take a quick lead in the first and hold onto it tonight. If Ingram is what everyone claims that he's going to be, perhaps he'll relax and score 20 points tonight. Jokic will kill the Lakers with Bogut and Lopez out but I figure our backcourt has the advantage. Laker forwards have a substantial advantage.

Chandler's neck tattoo is creepy as ell... He has a very high pain threshold. That's about ten thousand needles in the neck.

Disagree about forwards, think Millsap has the advantage at this point.

I forgot they have Milsap now. I take back that 'lakers have an advantage at forward comment'.

Ball needs work coming off/over/under screens. I think teams will attack his inexperience with them this season.

Haha yeah that's the type of player he is. Right there he needed to swing the ball.

Makes a much better play to start the 2nd quarter!
