It would be so fitting if we won the chip in those jerseys

Fingers crossed we can close out on Saturday. A few of our role players really stepping up as of late (KCP, Morris etc), hopefully this can continue
I feel a real biggy coming from Lebron. Has been really good but not great last 2 games. Lots of turnovers. He's due to dominate.

High key, Kieff is a must to re-sign this offseason, he’s been huge for us in the playoffs. I genuinely don’t think we would’ve made it as far as we have without him

Getting outplayed in all facets of the game. No heart, no execution of basic skills.

Its lebron or bust
Miami play with so much heart.

It was all LeBron tonight and they still lost. Bench was terrible.

Do we need some offence from Dwight? At least he would keep Bam and Crowder occupied.

5 of 20 and 1 of 11 from 3, for the bench. That's terrible. This is where we lost it.

That's as good an open look as you're ever going to get for Danny Green. I bet he's copping plenty on LA keyboards.

I’m still trying to figure out how the Lakers lost yesterday 🤷‍♂️
Got ahead of themselves. mamba jerseys a terrible idea, just a recipe for disaster. they were playing for the mamba jersey, not for the want to win for the chip.

and they ran into a determined team in miami

LeBron cannot do anything else though. It has to come from the others. Maybe Jimmy collapses - he is due. Surely Robinson does not shoot like that again.

Lakers need to get in front and stay there. They need to come with a different mindset.

How good was Rondo - especially tonight. He was all in tonight. There was a lot of respect between Rondo and LeBron too after the game - my guess is those two have been shouting at each other ever since Rondo arrived.

Offseason ey - who stays and who goes?
  • What to do with Kuz? one rookie year left - I assume you let it ride.
  • Does Dwight go around again with the Lakers?
  • Danny Green is getting paid next year so he is going nowhere.
  • Hopefully Rondo stays - he is perfect with LeBron
  • And the really big one - what does JR Smith do? Other than take his shirt off.

Wouldn't surprise me Lakers trade Green as an expiring contract with Kuzma attached
