Utah's bigs are no joke, after Memphis bigs they're the next best out there and we thoroughly outplayed them tonight

Maybe they finally clicked?

Lakers have only had 15 games of Pau,Kobe,Dwight,Metta,Nash. Heat's 1st 15 games with big 3 were not good either

Lakers looked calm, collected and like they had a system...... Were they using the triangle today?

I don't care what our record is the rest of the way, if they play like that every game. The no energy, lethargic losses are the ones that piss me off.

This is the kind of game we need though. In a funk, OKC coming up, keep up the bromancing. :jam2:

Man I really had forgotten what joy felt like while watching a Laker game, that was fun. Another positive, the Celtics suck almost as much as we do this season, so we got that going for us.

Damn that was a good time... Utah isn't a slouch team either so that was a good game to watch... I don't know how much optimism I've got, but certainly I feel really good right now.

I'll get back to ya'll on optimism later.

We brought it on the defensive end tonight. Even though our offense was clicking too, it's the defensive end that needs to be our constant, whether shots are falling or not.

Some quick optimism:
1. Minnesota lost.
2. The Lakers held Utah to only 84 points. They shot only 42% from the field and 21.4% from deep.
3. We dominated the glass 45-30.
4. We shot over 50% from the field as a team and 42.9% from deep.
5. Our big 4 shot 28/41 or 68% from the field.

Only time will tell, but if we just keep playing like this Playoffs or not I think we as fans can be proud of our team moving forward.

For sure. That's all I want. If we lose every game trying our hearts out, that's one thing. But we weren't even doing that.

It feels good to be proud of our guys again.

Postby Forward Three on Sat Jan 26, 2013 12:30 am

It was nice to see an actual real game of professional basketball from LA for a change. There were still more than a few 'wtf are you kidding me, not this [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] again!" moments but they didn't last and every time things start to slide, the Lakers picked it back up again. Some of it was good three point shooting, but most of it was just good communication, good ball movement, they stayed on their toes all around.

Still don't think it means much going forward, much like most of the team's Losses this season, they've dug themselves into too deep of a hole, but if the games can at least become entertaining again and not completely pitiful displays of amateur caliber play, that'd be great.

More optimism.... good to see Ebanks was the only one to not get in again. Scrub had so many chances over the past couple of years and has done squat consistently with maybe just a couple of exceptions. Kind of back handed optimism. :man1:

Want some more back-handed optimism; he won't be here next year, IMO...

Hopefully the Blazers will lose too. We're #10 now and not so far away from the #8 spot.

If we continue to play with the same energy and style we did tonight we will not only make the playoffs but also possibly make some noise. Its a big if though, but this is proof that this team can win. We didn't even hit FTs and TOs were a big issuue and we still won by a good margin.
