    At least it gives Ryno some time to recover from the injury.

    lakers always play the warriors well at home once a year (sometimes twice). lonzo and BI had great games and people just can't grasp how much kuzma is a negative defensively. to the point where he's not really a positive on the floor because the defense suffers so much... great rookie so far though, but gets mentioned a tad bit too much compared to the other rookies who are really cooking.

    I like Kuzma. I'd like him on the Rockets. But I prefer Ingram. Ingram is only 20 years old whereas Kuzma is already 22.

    Anyone disappointed in Luke's coaching?

    Exactly. The team statistical accomplishments are great, but I'll only be truly convinced of our ability to compete with the Warriors after a bit more games. Remember, CP3 in the lineup is still very new (7th game with CP3 in the lineup), so its going to be interesting to see where it all goes.

    What is impressive on the CP3 interview was, they were not just happy with the win. They know there are still a lot of improvements to make.

    If we are terrifying now, wait till we get this together.

    Luc's agility on the perimeter defensively is just insane. He's so fluid and smooth out there. Ariza and Tucker are great wing defenders in their own right, but I just love how Luc moves on D.

    Such a fun team to watch

    not disappointed but really to be expected. him lighting it up with the warriors on their stacked squad wasn't really indicative of anything. he's still young, has some good knowledge, so he'll have his learning curves and will grow. but so far, his rotations have been piss poor - one of his biggest weaknesses. but the guys do play for him, give effort, and most are improved on defense under him.

    He’s very under control on D. Makes all the difference

    Agreed.

    Kuzma is an excellent pick and a straight up steal, but Ingram has also shown flashes of brilliance lately like against the Warriors the other night.

    Long term, Kuzma has Klay Thompson type potential and Ingram could be a Durant-lite if the Lakers let them both develop properly over 3-5 years and not sellout for a run at PG and LeBron.
