    We can't afford to go down 10 so late in the game. We are really overmatched. Have to keep it close and try to steal it in the end.

    LA is just too good. They play great defense and we just don’t have an answer for AD and LBJ.

    They're just sharper. Making the big shots on offense and big plays on defense.

    Time to go to sleep. This game went how we knew it would after we saw the first quarter. Any close game with the Lakers will be a Lakers win. That's automatic.

    So a gentlemen's sweep then. Predictable.

    If Lakers can shoot threes better than us we are doomed.

    This is the problem with our lack of off ball movement. It makes it easier for the opponents to get in the passing lanes

    What are your thoughts so far? I have 100% more faith in consistent Bron/AD production over Harden/Westbrook.

    lakers came out with a killer mindset in the 4th

    rockets came out 2 steps slow.

    Rockets just folded. Rondo and Lebron showing why they have rings and the Rockets just shrunk and let things get out of hand.

    Rockets 11 threes
    LA 10 threes

    We can't beat them playing their game.

    In game 3 MDA is going to have to be more proactive with his timeouts and substitutions. It's a tall task to beat this Laker team with our current roster but we can't afford to go down 10 in the late 3rd/4th.
