I'm left scratching my head sometimes, are the times he makes fantastic decisions accidental or is he just inconsistent?

I really dislike his prejudice for veterans though, the playoffs are out of reach, shut down Lopez, KCP and IT or at least cut their damn minutes.

Let's see what Randle, Zubac and co have.

I read a tweet that Randle had to go see the Nuggets doctor after the game. People are taking this whole Randle thing to far before information even comes out

Why play him if he was still feeling it? They really trying for the playoffs?

I disagree. As long as there is a mathematical chance (a do-able one, not 10000/1) to make the playoffs, you try and win every game.

With some luck and BI, we could have won the two we lost. So if he comes back soon, we might win almost all the remaining games.

Besides, we should play to win if only to impress free agents that we are just "one superstar away from contention."

I also saw a tweet that some doctors were rushed to treat some lakers fans who were still screaming playoffs baby...2 hours after the game ended. Lol.

It's not going to make a difference. Lopez, KCP and IT are not going to be around, that's almost half the rotation. You think PG13 or LBJ give a **** if they win 37 games over 33 or 34?

They want to see what the young core is capable of, not the has been vets looking for a pay day.

Just watched the post game session again (access sportsnet). Mike Breshnahan reiterated that Randle played just one minute, 50 secs before getting yanked by the coach due to back to back turnovers.

Now either Trudell/Breshnahan is being a skunk. Take your pick.

Those 2 losses to Portland and Denver hurt us. Not enough games left to get into the PO's now, if they can't beat the teams just ahead of us. If they run the table the rest of the way against Utah, Denver again etc, western teams, it's barely possible (unless those other teams lost most of their remaining games), but unlikely. That said they do need to still put out their best effort. As do the coaches btw. The top FA's are not only watching the players, but the coaches for good decisions and game planning etc. If you have a bunch of top players and a lousy coach, it won't help. So Luke et al are on the bubble as much as anyone. If he keeps making strange late game decisions, that doesn't look good to a potential FA.

How many times has Thomas had back to back turnovers and nothing. Lol Byron taught him well.

He is the turnover king in the 4th quarters. Secondly I wanted to drive the point that Bresnahan never mentioned that Randle was under the weather or anything.

Just like the beginning of the season when he was sick and benched for 33 games. Lol

I thought Nuggets were just a better team and outplayed the lakers. Every player they had was a three point threat.

IT looked slow and to me he will not be in the lakers plan to resign for the future. Kuzma has disappointed me lately because he does not play consistent. At first he does not even get involved in the offense. Then he will catch fire and he looks like a great player. We need more consist Kuz.

Lopez was very effective playing within the painted area. We need more of that and less three point shooting.

But overall I was impressed with the Nugget team and their shooting.

2nd best 3pt shooting team in the NBA, after the Warriors.
