Gotta stop him ! Ingles looks like a chemistry teacher I really don't like the Utah Jazz. I don't know what it is about that franchise that rubs me the wrong way. I remember D Fish wanting to leave them so he could better medical care for his daughter in LA. When he returned to Utah in a Laker uniform they boo the guy. Classless fans. One other thing. Their coach looks like a zombie. Suffocating defense. They haven't allowed a single fastbreak points. Every points earned is thru half court set. korver has gotten every single benefit of the doubt call this freakin game- you look at him, its a foul. the jazz have gotten every single effing call its disgusting HOLY COW THEY ACTUALLY CALLED A FOUL ON KORVER!!!!!! PRAISE BE!!!! Damn these Jazz are well coached Jazz are doing what every team should be doing vs the Lakers, stop them getting freebies on fast breaks and let them try and beat you with that pathetic half court game Freaking Gobert... Looks like Donovan Mitchell got tired hearing all of the Kuz talk Difference with Mitchell and the Lakers 'young core' is Mitchell isn't a (bleep) scared to get blocked at the rim. He takes it to aggressive to the chest of the defender and gets often rewarded with free throws. Damn, Snyder putting out the blueprint going forward to beat this Lakers team, even with LeBron. Can Magic relieve Luke as a coach at the half? Utah Jazz are all smiles headed to the lockerroom.. this is so lame I wouldn't want to play Utah in the play-offs, they're well equipped to deal with the one thing Lakers are absolutely atrocious at. Where is Luke's gameplan? He's been abused right now by Snyder. Joe Ingles is everything BI should be were he to maximize his slowness via passing, shooting, driving, etc. The best way to play the Jazz is small ball Put Beasley in the center position and draw Gobert out of the paint. Creates driving lanes for Kuz and BI Can we draw some fouls on Gobert and get him out? Jazz let Kuz score and their coach immediately calls a TO Mitchell is just so much better than Lonzo, we blew that draft... Kuz getting blocked by Mitchell what a joke It's like this Jazz team is made to counter the Lakers. They literally stopped everything that the Lakers excel at: fastbreaks and lobs. I'd rather face GSW than the Jazz in the playoffs. Seriously. Mitchel in the conversation for ROTY.,... Ingles looks like he has seven kids. The youngest is 23 Don't get me wrong, the Lakers aren't playing well, but the fix is in... We saw Synder's gameplan early and it worked. The guy knows how to coach Mitchell is on a hot streak. This Utah team is scary when they could find a way to score. Joe Ingles is inside his head. Funny how Joe was completely non existent when we crushed them with Lebron earlier this year Gobert a french ***** flopping *** bitch can they stop fouling 3 pters? Ingles looks like his breath stinks. Fouling Korver is not a good idea Lakers get a majority of their points in the paint. Utah has DPOY Gobert in the paint. Lakers struggle in offense ♂️ If there was any game planning for this game (which it doesn’t look like there was) that should’ve been something to focus on These guys play defense. We can’t get squat inside and can’t get a stop to get out in transition either. What a horrendous second quarter. 7 minutes without a stinking field goal. Jazz getting anything and everything while the Lakers struggling just to get past the 3 point line. Figured this would happen with the Jazz missing 6 of their players. Is everyone in Utah white? It's unbelievable and this is coming from a white guy. Geez. You'd get more of a mixed crowd in Canada. Ingles is that guy everyone underestimates at the gym then regrets not picking him up on their squad and is reminded to never judge a book by its cover since he picked the guy who wore all the dope gear on the court. Downvote me if you want, but I’m not sure that Kuzma’s strategy of shooting bad shots until he gets hot is going to work in the playoffs/against good teams. Every possession matters in the playoffs I wish we had Qynn Snyder as coach Free cocaine Dude looks like Wall Street hustler Game summary: Mitchell is killing Hart. McGee is killing the Lakers. That Utah crowd is loud as **** why this team passed up on Mitchell I will never know........ See people saying that Mitchell has taken a step back. He missed some bunnies, some easy ones today. But his offense ALWAYS looks assuring. His scoring ability looks effortless and natural. Hard to say that about any other Laker not named LeBron or Kuzma. Somone ask Quin Snyder if Lonzo can have some of his cocaine And of course now the game is decided, we start getting soft calls so the refs can even up the free throw disparity a bit Donovan Mitchell, 13th draft pick 2017: 14/24- 33 points, 4 rebs, 9 assists, 2 blocks, 1 steal Lonzo Ball, 2nd draft pick 2017: 3/13- 7 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals Lakers young core sticking to their plan of scaring the Pelicans away from a trade So it's Royce O'Neal dropping a career high and 3pt record on us tonight How did Hart just get BLOWN BY from Joe I need to bleach my eyes after that insipid display If you take out Ingram our starters shot 24.4% What the actual **** lol. I know Mitchell was really good, but they lost because of Golbert. They missed so many points in the paint, and got scared of charging the basket. edit: and also the Lakers bad Defense. How many ****ing times did Donovan Mitchell outplayed this overrated 2nd over all pick son of Lavar SHUT THE **** UP IDIOTS Lonzo ball. King of the triple single Everyone fouling 3pt shooters and as soon as Lonzo went out the energy was lackluster Jazz were missing half the team and they still got blown out. not good So Lebron is gone after 2 more years. The 4th year on his deal is a player option and he obviously won't be picking that up. So what really is the point here? Lakers have ZERO chance of winning the title in the next 2 years so what is all of this for? Utah is great defensively. We aren’t exactly great offensively. gobert is reigning DPOY, they are on the road, the refs sucked, No LeBron or Rondo to calm things down, and Walton is an idiot. Not surprised we lost because the Jazz are a horrible matchup for the Lakers even if they're missing key players. It’s also the reason OKC lost to them in the playoffs and we play a similar style. The Lakers get 57.7% of their points in the paint (4th in the league) where they shoot 65% in the restricted area (7th in the league) and they shoot near the bottom percentile everywhere else. The Jazz absolutely feast on that kind of offense, especially with a defensive behemoth like Rudy Gobert patrolling the paint along with other defensive personnel like Favors. You’re not going to score at the basket unless you have someone who is elite at getting to the rim and the Lakers don’t have anyone outside of LeBron. They’ve had the best defensive rating in the NBA since the end of November and play a slow, methodical style meant to derail teams that rely on transition fastbreak points like the Lakers. That’s where our nonexistent half-court offense came into play, which is a major issue. There’s just too much isolation and not enough off-ball movement. There’s no attacking from the weakside or screens to get shooters loose. It got so bad that we watched Javale throw up a 3 pointer. It was puzzling that players kept trying to difficult, contested shots at the rim when that’s just not going to work against the Jazz. The fact that Lonzo was in foul trouble also meant we had no real playmaker left on the court, exacerbating the whole situation. For all the crap people have been spewing about Donovan Mitchell and his inefficiency this season, he’s been averaging 27/5/4 on 50/58/80 over the past 5 games. He’s started adjusting to the defensive attention placed on him and we don’t have players that can stop someone as quick as him. The screen action with Gobert was effective time and time again because Gobert’s a physical screener who creates tons of spacing and room while even our defenders generally have difficulty navigating through screens. Overall, I just think the Jazz are a nightmare matchup and are the perfect counter to this team’s playstyle and personnel. THIS REFS OMFG. Korver's quick release is insane, true elite shooter Everyone knows we are a poor shooting team. Gobert affected everything in the paint. He was the main factor for our poor offensive showing. I already had this game as a loss without LeBron, so it went as I had expected. Okay maybe a little worse. If we can’t score inside then we are going to loose. Utah had it going. We didn’t. Moving on. I predict we go 2-2 over the next four games without LeBron. The Jazz are playing some serious team defense. Their offense is looking good, too. Without Rubio etc. Ingles is a gem. I’d love him on the Lakers.
