I'm a broken record here, but we really did do the Lakers a solid. Pelinka owes DA one... might have saved his job.
They started all 3 guys they got in that trade and looked in sync and dominant when playing Pels starters. Didnt play anyone on the roster more than 30:10 either, and only time Pels looked good was a stretch during 2nd quarter bench rotations when Mo Bamba was bricking 3s every other LA possession. Lebron only took 14 shots, and they still cruised to victory and went to end of bench guys late in the 4th.
Its just a couple of games, but I'm calling the Lakers as 7th or 8th seed right now. Just hoping Wolves are finishing below them.
