I wish I had Max Strus confidence jesus christ.
Really went 0-7 while the commentators kept on saying "shooters shoot". I honestly just cant believe that Gabe Vincent and fucking Max Strus are two guys in our rotation this season
Well when Dragic and AB and Herro are hurt...
Lakers shot themselves out of it
Lebron 1-8 from the 3. Skip about to get some more diet dew.
They Draymond themselves?
Strus did his best to shoot them back in
That’s when bad shooting stretches hurt you
Why do they keep going for the 3 at the end instead of an easier 2 to tie.
We get no credit per usual
Not to be a sore loser but it’s not like You guys played a great game
You beat the Lakers missing 2 starters?
Jimmy’s hair is underrated
Black Sideshow Bob
It’s nice seeing Nunn pop off
Had 15 in the first Q and definetly provided a great cusion for us going forward
the lakers lost but kuzma was damn near everywhere at the end there. That 4th was the definition of tired my god
He had crazy defense on Jimmy in that one possession and he was torching us as well
Smh the Lakers really wasted a great game from Kuz
Get kuzma more help
He can’t play with these scrubs
First off, why would you make that throw in, secondly I hate the Lakers but the face by Caruso where he looks like he was tearing up makes me wish he would have made that
Strus did his best to save you LAL Also that 4th quarter was frustrating as fuck to watch.
All his shots hit the rim the same way lol
LeBron when passing out of game winning shots vs the Heat in 2020: 0-2.
Its 2021 bro
Shocked KCP could finish the game after taking such a vicious elbow to the face.
I was more worried about Robinson, his elbow got face’d pretty hard
How many straight Laker games now shooting under 30% from 3? 6 of our last 7 games apparently weve shot under 30%
FUCK GG Heat
No Schroder and AD and only lost by two. Im okay with this loss. GG Miami
Exactly what I was thinking and the team is going through a slump, we’ll be fine ..
i cant believe they were really discussing that "foul" on duncan potentially being a flagrant...
KCP just put his face on DRs arm. LMAO
The Lakers genuinely have a bottom 5 offense in the NBA without AD in. Schroeder was out too but the lack of ideas and shot making is very very concerning.
Every 3 they missed was open/very lightly contested
Lakers fans want me to believe this team is as good as last years. I just dont see it.
Yea man last years team had ad lmfao
tried to warn them about Harrell
Thing is we were this bad mid regular season last year. We got more talent just been shooting dog shit. That should improve. If not we’re losing first round. But that was true last year too.
Saving this comment for later.
Jazz fans want to believe this year is finally different. I just don’t see it.
So many questions down the stretch. Why did Wes shoot a 3 down 2 instead of going to bron? Why did butler just not move on the inbounds and have to try and catch a tough pass?
Caruso’s face should be a meme LOL
Caruso in tears at the end gonna be the new overused internet meme
LeBron played like shit this game. If this is how he looks while AD is out, Lakers are in for a very rude awakening
Is this the first time you have watched them without AD? Lmao
Just as expected, ~~MVP candidate and min top 2 best player of all-time LeBron James~~ Alex Caruso takes the game-tying shot.
Shake it off Caruso. There will be others.
Everyone on Lakers is so fucking hesitant to shoot a three damn
lebron. shoot the ball !!!
Thought the offensive foul on Robinson was a bad/questionable call... seems like KCP ran into his elbow lol.
Bam bam fucking with Jimmy in the post game interview was hilarious
Bam “LeBron ‘Bam’ James” Adebayo with the block
Maybe we should trade for PJ Tucker
Even when this team wins, they seem to just barely scrape by. Theres never been a 4th quarter lead that felt safe, not even the last Kings one. Heat need to get their shit together and close out without giving away turnovers and easy shots.
The struggle is real for the Lakers without AD. Bron cant carry mediocre anymore. 35% from the field.
ALEX CARUSO SCORED 0 FUCKING POINTS 0
Fuck ESPN. Absolute embarassment of a coverage. They spent more time talking abiut ADs shirt than they did about the Heat.
he JVG says Lebrons a great player when he defend Jimmy in MIAs last possession and the pass to Caruso in the end. its like "whut?"
Lol. First Lakers game? We were blowing them out and Harden was playing like a beast and all they talked about was “how amazing Lebron is” and how he deserves the MVP. Just shoving it down everyone’s throat. I feel like I’m watching the WWF with a
LeBron shouldnt be leading the MVP convo. It should be Embiid or Dame now
Don’t worry, it will become undeniable in the coming weeks
alright, consulting my lakers rules here, it appears this game doesn’t count and the heat are merely “regular season champs”
Wow what a crazy ending.
Got me strussed out
That ending was not stressful at all
Lakers need to make their open 3s
LeBron has to take that gamer after the steal
Gonna need that caruso reaction gif
Max Straus is me in pickup
That was the saddest game I’d ever seen. Every open 3 was a miss for the lakers. I feel for y’all man
That wasn’t a pretty game but we got the win. This one was a good win. Great game vs the lakers.
People mocked embiid for crying in game 7 of the conference finals. I wonder what people are going to do with Caruso?
Not saying mocking is ok btw
I hope all the people complaining that ADs stats are a little down see how important he really is to this team.
Kuz really earned my respect this season. Dudes really stepping up for the team
Duncan and Strus 1-13 from 3.. sheesh
Yeah the nets are def better than the lakers. Lebron needs help
Why is Lebron so scared of the moment? Just fucking take over dude. Guy resorted to Wesley Matthews, KCP, and Carushow down the stretch. Not a good look
They were fking open lmao
Open looks threes by shooters in infinitely better than your superficial 2k takeover bullshit. I bet youre the type of person who believed that LeBron shouldnt have kicked it back to Danny Green.
I agree with you to a point, but he could also just be trying to give these other guys the confidence to step up in big moments. He’s Lebron, he’s proven he can take over at any point he wants. That being said, I wish he had been more aggressive tod
Joel Embiid would’ve took that game home... take that how you will.
Kobe or Jordan wouldnt of passed it. ​ ​ Dont take it personally im just messin around.
Lol Lakers lost to the heat?!?
Lebron afraid of the moment again. Deferring to Matthews and Caruso. Cant make that up.
Seriously. He had an off night. But cmon
Since we’re just making things up now: Dame was afraid of game 5 so he faked an injury and left the bubble on a plane before his team.
Get out of your feelings little guy. Its not that serious.
Alright bois, its time to tank.
Lakers roleyplayers cant make a fucking open three for their life. Kuzma, Morris, and Wes had multiple open oppurtunities to hit super open threes.
LeBron needs to take that shot. Kobe wouldve.
