the fight right now from the lakers on the offensive end is nice.... they really need to defend better though... westy is taking stupid shots per usual which is helping the lakers out but you dont want to give up 60 plus in the first half to this team... defend them and keep letting westy shoot.

More-Than-Most
01-17-2019, 11:24 PM
lol they are literally just allowing westy to shoot and he is stinking it up. This is why OKC wont be able to contend... Westy needs to drive more and force shots less and just allow others to take the shots... once a team guards everyone else and allows him to shoot long jumpers its a wrap. Good **** lakeshow

People talk about Ben but guess what I am glad he isnt stupid enough to force 3s.

Just let the dude bang out deep shots. If he burns you he burns you but the majority of the time he wont.,

The Lakers bench won them this game. Zubac in particular was a monster.

Westbrook's horrible shooting continued, but that wasn't the major problem for this team. The major problem exposed was that the Thunder have no bench scoring at all. Schroeder and Noel are solid players, but they can't be expected to make up for when the starters go out.

FlashBolt
01-18-2019, 01:30 AM
This is why I can't I said OKC games are unenjoyable for me and have made me hate basketball. What the hell was Westbrook doing all game? This guy is chucking up shots and going out of control every drive to the basket. He thinks he's James Harden or something over here... Paul George was playing better than he was and the guy gets 19 shots but Russ feels compelled to jack 30...? Ridiculous man. It's like the guy doesn't even realize what he's doing to the team at times. Incredibly solid game by Zubac and Josh Hart's hustle was huge for you guys in loose balls but wow, I have only watched about 15 OKC games and my impression hasn't changed. Just dumb basketball by two players who are arguably top ten players.

Bench has always been our problem and Presti has done a terrible job the past four years of rectifying that. Donovan isn't a great motivator and never was so it is what it is with our roster at this point. Roberson won't help with scoring but I hope his defense can help us lock down and switch every player. We lost because of Westbrook. I don't care what anyone else says. This guy is a nutjob taking 30 shots and jacking them one-by-one. It's like he shoots and says a prayer before every shot.

the insane thing is you could just watch the lakers sag 5 feet off of him and instead of driving and passing he would just pull up and shoot... 1 or 2 bad shots a game you can live with but they choose to not even defend him and let him defend himself and he actually did.

OKC is the most intriguing to me because I feel like they're so talented that they can either make it to the Western Conference and possibly beat GS, but they are also highly susceptible to losing in the first round with performances like this.

Whether it's Westbrook, or the bench, they need o figure this out because they are blowing a massive opportunity here.

My boys did it! Also, Westbrook can't shoot to save his life. How do you even go 7-30? I looked and he went 5-12 from 3PT range, so what the heck was he missing so many of?

Just think...Coach Walton barely used Zubac last season. Maybe he wasn't ready, I don't know. But he's been a pleasant surprise this season. Lonzo's getting better too at scoring. Kuzma as we all know is a gem. Seven threes...

They better keep Kuzma.

Solid win.

zn23
01-18-2019, 01:55 AM
Why isn't Zubac starting over McGee? In all the games I've seen him play he's clearly the better player both offensively and defensively. He can't move as quick as McGee he's a much more dominant low post presence.

Pull-up jumpers, stupid and reckless shots near the basket, out-of-control 10000 mph thinking he's a runningback attacking the basket and blasting the ball at the backboard to where Lakers are running the fastbreak with 2-3 players because the ball missed the rim that bad.. The guy is a lunatic, man. PG was putting a great offensive performance and only took 19 shots. At points of the game, Westbrook went a few possessions where he didn't even look to pass it to PG.. PG is our best player and scorer but Westbrook still doesn't get the memo. Last 14 minutes, PG took one shot. Westbrook? Idiot took 9 shots and missed all of them. Westbrook's TS% of 48% while a USG% of over 30 makes him the equivalent of MJ/Kobe at their final years bad. This guy is doing some really stupid stuff out there. I would be more comfortable if he took 12-15 shots and let Adams/PG get more possessions.

as for the idiots who think ben simmons vanishes against good teams


For this season, these are Ben's averages against below 0.500 teams:

17.4 ppg, 9.4 rpg, 8.5 apg

And these are his averages against teams with records at or above 0.500:

16.0 ppg, 9.2 rpg, 7.9 apg

And these are his numbers against top 4 conference teams and Boston (Portland, Milwaukee, Toronto, Indiana, Boston)

16.0 ppg, 10 rpg, 7.5 apg


Gotta love statistical evidence to **** on stupid notions.

the sixers... i dont cheer for any other teams... tonight for example the lakers/OKC didnt matter to me i just wanted the lakers to win because their young guys busted their *** where is OKC had a stupid *** game plan and a stupid *** star in westy... I have bias against certain players like harden/durant/curry and for guys like a lebron/DLO but its mostly just the sixers in terms of a team.


I just dont like stupid basketball. I am also not really a fan of todays basketball because there is no defense being played or allowed to be played. Its not the NBA fault they are doing what will get them ratings and its smart I just hate it.
