How will the Lakers do in the game against the Utah Jazz . The guys must do what well to get the W? Who on the should Purple and Gold be careful of? Will the game be up-and-down type or a defensive struggle?

Word up Pete. IMO it's just a matter of time it seems before Kuzma starts. Also let's see if the defense carries over from last game- having Lopez in there seems to be making a big difference.

I must admit, Lopez did look pretty awesome dropping those 3ssssss!!!!....lol. But yeah I want KCP to do what he was brought there to do; lock people down on D.

They are 4-0 without him. Granted it's preseason but they still have a decent roster.

The Jazz are a very good team. Strong guards especially when Rodney Hood decides to show up.

there was an article on a blog called Inverse making an argument to bring Randle off the bench. It makes sense, Ball and Kuzma fit like a glove and Jordan and Randle are a good combo too...

Lopez makes a huge difference. Without him, Utah is running on a fast break rather than Lopez and Nance fighting for offensive boards.

Ingram's last drive is an example of him trying to beat players off the dribble rather than using ball fakes and hesitations. A little coaching will go a long way.

Think that's Randles ceiling? Career bench guy? I know some around here think his great just don't see anything special.

I compare him to Lamar Odom. They are very similar in many ways. Lamar won 6th man of the year during his last year with LA. He was also an essential starter for several years. He's almost a great player but is not showing any improvement. 1o pounds lighter has not made a difference. Not sure where he fits actually. He would be a starter on most teams in the NBA, so...

Really? I wouldn't even put him in top 10 pf's in the league. I just don't think he will ever develop a jumper that would open up so much space for him.

4 for 16 from 3, why shoot so many when the team just can't hit at a high enough %

Kuzma has exceeded all expectations, Lopez is decent, KCP has been very underwhelming, and everyone else is basically the same as last season.

Randle's hustle-style needs to keep coming off the bench...

Ingram isn't soft, but his pounding inside isn't gonna work against any defender in this league for a while

I don't understand how none of the young core have progressed much if at all. How is that possible for the richest most storied franchise in the league.

BI ill-advised shot there. Man this Mitchell kid is good.

Mitchell did get some ridiculous bounces tonight. But he is looking real good nonetheless

Well, a couple of bad possessions after the 99-98 lead, and that's all she wrote. At least Ingram had a better game though struggled a bit the last couple of minutes.

Ingram was good for 3 quarters, and then started to press again in the 4th. He’s just not ready to be that guy yet. Hated his possessions down the stretch.

The lakers have 4 guys who are very similar in size and skill set with JCP, JC, hart and Blue. Given that Blue did not play tonight, it looks like he's gonna get his heart broken and sent back down again. Who gets PT amongst Clarkson, Hart and Pope? Does it matter? One of them has to get bundled...

Yeah he needs just stay within the team concept the whole game instead of trying to do too much down the stretch. So it's a mental discipline thing he has to get, & this is part of the experience he is gaining in trying to become better.
