how sad is it that we could have been up 3-1 to OKC but we made stupid turnovers. F PAU!

2 times westbrook makes a huge mistake and we dont capitalize. that westbrook slip was our chance and we blew it bc pau decided to pass it and of course turn it over

there goes our season. we are NOT winning 3 in a row. yes we have a "formula on d" but we cannot close games bc were stupid.

That's it.
We choked again.
Pau's turnover killed us, yes, but so did Bynum's ineffectiveness to establish position in the post (he only achieved it ONCE in the 4th quarter), Mike Brown's lack of ability to make adjustments on offense during crunch time, and the AWFUL refereeing in the last 2 minutes (the non-call on Kobe, and the two fouls on Durant -once he missed both FTs, but still).

Gave away to games in a row.
The season is most likely over.

Kobe iso ball mailed us this game in, I don't know who to blame the loss on though because it seemed like the entire team forgot how to play basketball for the rest of the 4th. I'm not watching game 5 OKC is pretty much going to make us eat dirt.

Same with last year vs Mavs series, this year playoffs lost also all in Gasol, his passiveness cost us the series.

This teams has "it" in the sense of "quit", as in they tend to quit at the end of the game and turn what should be basically sure wins into horrific losses on a regular basis.

It'll take a lot of housecleaning to root out the source of the Lakers tendency to just give up and stop competing hard at the end of games, but it's absolutely necessary if the Lakers want to win another title while Kobe still has time.

yup. i called it in the 3rd quarter. said we would go cold because he was just holding on that ball so long.... it was so obvious.

but you know, he doesnt play for their approval.

So...you think Kobe called the ISOs? That's not how basketball works.

Don't bother. It's JGC.

Call it what you want, but Kobe isn't saying give me the ball and don't give it to Drew. He's doing whatever this team needs of him but we can't get it into Drew because they are fronting him and Kobe's getting the ball with 8 seconds left most of the time.

Yes, I wonder why Brown kept going with it.


We got it to Drew once, he bricked. Kobe got it to Pau, and Pau turned it over trying to give it back. Offensive execution and turnovers is where we failed down the stretch. Kobe Iso is just a symptom of that.

yep ... although this was happening even in Phil'S era ... I think Kobe needs to play less iso and use screens more but for some reason he is terrible coming off of the screen

The ball never leaves his hands. When that happens we go cold as a team. It happens just about every time unless he is 81 pt hot. every time he does that for multiple possessions, we go cold shortly thereafter and miss shsots or turn it over. EVERY time.

sometimes we recover. its tough to predict how long we stay cold... but the team goes cold nearly 100% of the time when he does that.

I don't think so. I'm pretty sure SAS will beat OKC...and Boston will beat SAS.

now is when it's easy to watch. now we have no chance so it's easier. we expect a loss on monday whether it's by 30 or by 1 doesn't matter.

mail it in as a loss before hand and it will be much easier
