Aww man, I pushed at +3pts.  Rinse and repeat bet against the Lakers next game.

If AD took made a two instead of taking a three at the end regulation, you would have won.  ;D

I thought it was going to be a loss in the 4th quarter so I'll take the push.

Unbelievable. Blew an 11-point lead with 5 mins left.

Westbrick's triple double seems nice, until you see 5-15 and 7 TOs, and -17.

Almost another L. The Lakers should have blown away the Hornets. They need to pay attention to detail especially Russ. (back court violation, careless passes, bad shot selections)

Lakers missing their best wing defender THT and another scoring punch off the bench in Nunn. They will be fine if they are fully healthy and all receive the booster shots.

They are having trouble with teams that are not good. We need to stop pretending that the Lakers will go far in the playoffs with Russ.

I was hoping playoff Rondo would take over once playoffs started. My expectation for Westbrick was to give the Lakers the needed energy during regular season, especially whenever LeBron is out. But even that is not working out. And with LeBron out potential 1-2 months, the Lakers are in big trouble.

So the Lakers lost to OKC twice, but beat the Heat?  ;D Even without Jimmy Buckets, Miami should still be able to handle the Lakers.

Martin, I guess you lost this bet, huh?

But Russ had a triple double with 8 TURNOVERS. His shots were still questionable. Without Malik Monk we would have lost that game.

That turnover by Melo was a Shaqtin a fool moment. Tyler Hero was unlucky with that open look. Otherwise it would have been a huge loss.

Yeah, Malik Monk had a huge game.

The 5 second violation was bad. But the Lakers had a time out. How come Vogel did not call a time out? Also, the step back 3 by Russ at the end of regular time was horrible.

Dang, Jimmy Butler getting injured killed my bet.  The Lakers almost gave it away in OT.

Westbrook is currently averaging 5 plus turnovers a game.
Maybe he plays better in smaller markets.

Tbh - the Lakers got lucky at the end. Malik Monk had a phenomenal game.

I don't mind trading Westbrick for Ben Simmons. Both can't shoot, but Simmons is a better distributor who plays really good perimeter defense. And Ben won't be taking away like 20 shots from actual shooters.
