One of the best games of the season. Had a playoff vibe from start to finish and came right down to the final minute

So true. This was just a great game to watch. Huge plays all around and insane energy.

Imagine 7 games of this. Holy shit

I would die. I kept telling myself it’s just a regular season game but my heart couldn’t take it.
[–]Lakers DeathByChargers 148 指標 2小時前
id prefer 4 games of this

Granted, but the Lakers get swept

I would be okay with this playoff matchup with two 100% healthy teams. It could be a bloodbath.
[–]Nuggets jimithelizardking 106 指標 3小時前
Yeah definitely would help having more than 1 center against a team with two 7 footers and AD

We got the glimpse at playoff Lebron today
[–]Celtics COOL_CRUSH 20 指標 3小時前
Hopefully he'll have better perimeter shooting come playoff time tho
[–]ming212209 149 指標 3小時前
His jumper wasn't falling but his intensity level was definitely turned up.
[–]LBW1 80 指標 3小時前
The shot is something he can’t control but he can control the intensity and he was definitely ready today. Even the first few points of the game instead of defaulting to AD, he just drove himself
[–][MIL] Giannis Antetokounmpo Watered-Down-Omelets 54 指標 3小時前
I swear I watched Lebron go god mode for the last few minutes in regulation.
[–]Suns RyanDFAC 44 指標 3小時前
Lebron doesn't have to be clutch if they have AD hitting 3s
[–]yoyowatup 8 指標 3小時前
He still was clutch. He set up every shot it seemed like the second half. 8 assists and 19 points
[–]Lowyat_Slyder 11 指標 3小時前
Now I understand why people urge AD to play 5. He is naturally dominant there. You know how Lakers wants to win this game when Vogel plays AD in C and busts up Caruso and KCP for defense. That contest by Caruso when Jokic wants to launch the threes to tie is really crucial. Thumbs up to both team for this great game.
[–]MeanMcNugget 42 指標 3小時前
Alex Caruso didn’t get enough All Star votes.
[–][WAS] Darvin Ham BigBoutros 858 指標 3小時前
lmao Caruso was +23 in a fkng OT game
[–]Lakers tokyoblood 23 指標 3小時前
We keep telling y'all he's not just a meme lol
[–][LAL] Marcelo Huertas henstobs11 87 指標 3小時前
He really was the difference maker tonight
[–]Raging_Professor 8 指標 3小時前*
Yeah. Haters will just look at his raw stats and think that Laker fans are just overhyping him. He isn't a star but he is someone you need if you want to win a championship
[–]Lakers NotBrokeJustBent23 35 指標 3小時前
Dude makes defensive plays time and time again. I’m glad Vogel played Caruso during the late 4th and OT period. Rondo or Kuz would’ve fucked everything up
[–]Lakers TMSXL 371 指標 3小時前
And yet Vogel still insists on playing Rondo
[–]Lakers b1indsamurai 110 指標 2小時前
He had Caruso in at the end of the 4th and the entire OT—maybe he's finally learning
[–]zannet_t 77 指標 2小時前
Vogel doesn't play Rondo because he thinks it's winning basketball. That much is clear when Rondo didn't play a single second come crunch time. Vogel plays Rondo because it's effectively in-game load management for Bron so he doesn't have to handle the ball all the time. Come playoffs we'll see the OT lineup a lot more often, I guarantee you.
[–]Lakers slimreaperd 21 指標 2小時前
agree on this, he plays Rondo for LBJ have a breather
[–]Kings TheFoxKing5 187 指標 3小時前
The Lakers struggle every time Rondo is on the floor
[–]Lakers Jayymeister 204 指標 3小時前
Caruso needs to play every minute Lebron is on the floor
[–]Lakers gbdarknight77 70 指標 3小時前
Idk how many times it has to be told that the tri of AD/Bron/Caruso is the highest +/- trio on the Lakers. Those three together are just efficient af.
[–]Lakers yungtatha 151 指標 3小時前
And lock Kuzma in a gym until he gets his scoring groove back.
[–]Lakers NotClayMerritt 77 指標 3小時前
Break is coming at a bad time for Kuzma. His monthly good game was coming up. Now he has to wait a whole week and his whole rhythm is off.
[–]Lakers CarnyConCarne 58 指標 3小時前
KCP’s steal won the game tho
[–]Nuggets TheThingsIdoatNight 58 指標 2小時前
Yes, but also Jokic made a horrible series of decisions to lead to that steal. He’s normally so money in the clutch, but that was bad. He needs to take that three. GG Lakers
[–]Suns KushOJ 107 指標 3小時前
he was gassed hard. Couldn't really do shit since late in the 4th.
[–]Lakers Trumppered 41 指標 3小時前
Which is weird that he was so gassed... Dude had long stretches of rest from being in foul trouble and only played 32 minutes in an OT game but looked like it was his second game back to back in 1 night...
[–]Suns KushOJ 16 指標 3小時前
really weird. I've seen him look fresher in games where he played 45m.
[–]Square_Of_Chocolate 6 指標 3小時前
That's not surprising, he was playing against the big bodies of AD, Bron, and Dwight every second he's on the floor, which gassed him out quick
[–]So-Fi 21 指標 3小時前
Jokic having to guard Dwight exhausted him. Dwight is too physical and active for him
[–][DAL] Wang Zhizhi suzukigun4life 18 指標 3小時前
Honestly shocked he didn't take the shot in the final minute of OT. I know he was exhausted but I still thought he'd take it
[–]Nuggets TheThingsIdoatNight 14 指標 3小時前
He needed to, that was one of the worst decisions he’s made in the clutch all year
[–][DEN] Gary Harris tmhous 25 指標 3小時前
One bad game and everyone trashes Jokic lol smh he was the only center we had going against 3 7 footers. This break couldn’t come soon enough
