How will the Lakers do in the upcoming contest vs. the New Orleans Pelicans. The guys must do what well to get the W? Which Pelicans player should L.A. watch out for? Will the game be a shootout or a defensive struggle? Go Lakers!

That dude heals slow. We may see him for the last game of the season. It's unbelievable. You would think the guy tore his Achilles or something.

On another note, let's take down New Orleans!!

It impresses me how BI actually is playing well with Bron now, and not deferring to him too much. I didn't have a lot of confidence things would turn 180 degrees like it did given his youth and on-paper misfit with lebron. Out of our three core I thought he would fit the least and would be my choice to trade but...keep them all.

My biggest question is how much of this has to do with BI being one of only two primary ballhandlers in the starting lineup now? Will he produce the same when Zo is back?

Yup. This just means either Randle has the “Revenge” game of the ages or some scrub a$$ player is going to have his life time high.

If BI has a great game tonight against the PELICANTS, I will give him the KOBE 2.1 designation. Then LeBron will have two Kobes so NO EXCUSES.

This is a key game! We win, we have a chance. We come out and play like we did against the Hawks two games after the emotional win against the Celts, then get the golf clubs out because we are going nowhere near the playoffs

McGee looks like a looney tune in front of nba centers. A bum like Okafor is also having his way with him. McGee is a poor man’s D.Jordan. Some highlight dunks and bloopers galore. There’s another center but he’s as old as Bill Russell so that’s there.

Thanks a ton Maginka.

KCPoop shouldn’t be on the court. He should be cleaning dishes for Klutch sports.

Lack of a legit center is hurting the lakers as both Randle and Okafor are having their way in the paint.

42 points in the first quarter vs a pelicans team without AD. Both Luke and Magic should be kicked out of town.

Stu Lantz insisting that it should have been a non shooting foul. Is he always repping the opposition teams? The lakers staff head to bottom stinks...be it the media or the administrative staff.

We will likely win cos of LeBron. But the Pels seem to be a better coached team. Crisp passing and ball movement.

True, but our vets are causing all the turnovers. Looks like Lebron has activated....self destruct mode. Lol

Please take out Rondo. He’s stinking up the joint on both ends of the floor.

I was supporting the coach all this while but I think he’s needs to go. He’s getting schooled by more accomplished coaches. I don’t see any adjustments being made on the fly. Just bs rotational changes and hoping for the best. Alvin Gentry is maximizing/optimizing his limited resources while Luke is clueless with a much more talented roster.

What is the problem with LeBron turning the ball over so many times, and his shooting is terrible even on the free throw line. Is it frustration with the rest of the team or what.

We can see how important it is to keep Ingram from getting too many fouls. He has sat most of the first half and Kuz just does not have that driving ability that Ingram has.

But to two major reasons why the Lakers are down by a dozen at the half is turn overs and NO DEFENSE.

Wish we still had Randle. He is a bull out there.

They don't make playoffs and get passed 1st rd, think he's definitely gone( probably anyway). If they do make it ,think his staff is gone still.

LOL! Worthy making excuses for the Lakers. He says the Pelicans are playing relaxed with no pressure at all and just having fun. I laugh because any team that is playing against a lousy defense of the Lakers is going to look good. The Lakers need to step up their defense.

My biggest complaint about Luke is that he doesn’t have a legitimate system where players can get reliable offense going. Now it could be because Lebron is just going to do whatever he wants, but when I watch these guys play vs the Warriors and Spurs in particular, those guys buy into the system and move purposefully. Luke is young, he’ll learn im sure, with us or somewhere else. My issue with getting rid of him is that whoever we bring in will be a Lebron pawn, whether LBJ demands it or not. I’d also bet that Luke will shine elsewhere as well.

Right now though I do agree his in game decisions could use work, although he does deserve credit when his decisions leads to wins. Kkennon posted a video where they credited Luke with how we guarded Harden in our last game. He’s not a championship coach right now, but he’s not a bad coach

New players mean getting used to one another and that’s why I give some leniency to Luke. Each of his years coaching he’s had a different starting lineup and bench. The players have to get acclimated and so does the coach.

I just don’t believe a team can grow if there are about four to five new players each season

Still think they definitely need to upgrade his coaching staff. His college buddies have to go.

i agree, especially with his inexperience but that is his fault and it can be his undoing.

Playing good against great teams is not going to get us INTO the playoffs. That's the problem. We can't afford to trade wins and losses. We need to play good against ALL teams.

As of right now, I don't see us making a playoff push. We have absolutely no offense and I cringe when any one of these guys shoots. We can't afford these embarrassing losses. This is **** depressing. Can't tank.... Can't make playoffs. Worst of both worlds.

Ingram is a good all around player but he’s not gonna shoot us out of a 15 point deficit, we have no system, players won’t move without the ball. If there was any time for Kuz to pull through in the fourth quarter it’s now. He doesn’t often show up in the fourth but we need his scoring

I agree the constant churn of players messes with the team chemistry and continuity which is required for team stability. I have been on Luke’s camp as well. However I will not ignore the ambiguity in his offensive system and poor floor spacing which is now becoming an eye sore. This was evident even last year without Lebron. Lastly his fondness for veterans over younger players.

He will persist with veterans even when they don’t deserve the playing time. I remember him early in the season going to Rondo over Lonzo. And then last season benching Randle for almost half the season in favor or Nance. That alone was enough to warrant an instant firing.

Gotta fire Luke if this team fails to make the playoffs
