Clark just got mugged, but got the board again.

Damn, Kobe taught Pek that you can snatch the ball from your opponent...and Earl Clark was the first victim.

Well, he's a Star Starter after all.

Well, this one seems like its over. Way to fight to keep the lead, that's something I'm sure they learned from the Phoenix game.

He shoots like 35% from the field and 30% from the arc on the season. We're making him a hero.

I've watched only a few Min games this year and he's looked good in each..... :man10:

Must be his only good games ......


Maybe if he gets traded to the Lakers, since you watch most of the games, we will get ourselves a steal. :man1:

^^ I don't really love the cherry picking you do on Pau, Doc. It resembles the Kobe haters.


Do I need to pull up the posts of me saying bad things about the other players in the game tonight?


No. I'm sure there's some equal opportunity there. It just makes me bristle a little when he's actually had some good plays out there tonight for the most part. He lost a rebound to a young athletic kid? It doesn't bother me as much when he's doing other things positive out there at that exact time like flushing down the dunk and cutting for an and one.

He's young; like 24, and this is his first season. He might become a good, consistent shooter one day.

Well, that should do it. Escape with a W, but seriously this team hasn't changed much. Some aspects are better, but they're still going on these insultingly bad stretches that defy belief for how rapidly and prolifically they let an opposing team score.

Not great. But, we got a W, and that's all that matters in the playoff race. We have to go at least 5-2. MDA would say:

"Let's go, let's go. Build the lead, hit open shots! Let's go guys!"

Agreed, but as said by many here I can't take any solace in moral victories any more. We need W's. We get that and I'll be happy.


I get that but I am also a believer in teams have to learn how to win. The Lakers use to beat teams because other teams made big mistakes and we didn't. Right now we are the team making late game mistakes. We have learned to lose and forgot to how to win. This game is atleast shows they are going the right direction (barely)
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Don't watch the ball. Just watch him for about 5 minutes. Doesn't box out. Doesn't like contact down low. Gets pushed all over the place. Flails for rebounds and screams. Catches at the elbow and looks to pass immediately, even with no cutters. No aggression. It is really really bad if you only watch him and how he never hustles.

I'll take the W, but I don't think there's anything to take away from here. Awful execution on both ends after that blistering start. A 29 pt lead became a 4pt one... Demonstrated that ball movement on O doesn't necessarily = better D... Nash was a non-factor, Pau was weak on D (strong on O though), Kobe seemed off rythm all game (IMO because he's looking to pass too much, can't get any scoring rythm), our shooters showed their great inconsistency.
"The first time I ever saw my uniform hanging in the locker I put it on right away, and it just felt like I was putting on golden armour. From that day forward, I just called it 'the golden armour', it just felt like there was something mystical and magical about it" - Kobe Bryant.

Rubio hasn't done jack-50 against the Lakers. I'd like to keep it that way. Nice win, guys.

Still think we could have played better, we had a 20+ point lead and should have remained that way. We gave up 100 points to a lesser opponent I think we have to play better if we wanna beat Boston, Brooklyn or Miami. Also this would have been great streak if we didn't lose to the Suns :man2:

Meh. Hard to be objective that they have turned the corner with only a 4-1 stretch to look at.

^^ Are you really talking about this particular game? If you are I'm going to have to question what you're seeing out there. Sure, I've seen that from him plenty of times over the last few years, more often than I care for. Nonetheless, generally speaking, not what I saw at all from him tonight. Did you watch the first quarter where he had 13 points, blocked two shots on Pek and kept him basically scoreless and useless during that stretch?
