    Lakers look terrible right now, they can't hit any 3s and AD looks like the bright lights are a little too bright for him

    As a Lakers fan, I agree - and I am at a loss as to why we suck so much.

    Game 1 against Portland looked like it was going to be a win, and with 5 minutes to go in the fourth quarter, we self-destructed.

    Not to take anything away from Portland, who were very good.

    But I can't understand why we are struggling so much.

    The Blazers are a pretty talented team now with players back so I'm not surprised that they're scoring so many points. But defensively they're pretty bad so there's no excuse for the Lakers not scoring 100+

    I totally agree.

    I don't understand why we suck so much.

    AD is hot, and cold.

    King James is playing well, but he's carrying the team on his shoulders.

    Toronto and Boston both on the verge of sweeps and an inevitable semi finals match up. I think the winner will get through the bucks who have been ordinary in the bubble and will have to get through a hot Miami in the semis.

    The lack of crowd really affects the intensity of the match.


    Maybe they should have thought about a public mosh pit for fans but safely distanced so there’s some atmosphere in the game. Don’t need a big crowd. Just find the most vocal 100 or so fans you can find and bring them into the bubble...

    games so far have lacked playoff intensity and feel... not really enjoying it

    It's about time they pulled their fingers out!

    But the Lakers looked very good.

    Both lower seed teams are 2-0 up in the east semis now after Giannis hilariously fouled on the buzzer to give Miami a 2 point win today.

    I don't see Toronto beating Celtics 4 of the next 5 games.

    Bucks have some chance of beating Miami 4 of 5 but Miami have to be favourites.

    Yeah that was a crap foul but so was the one before it that gave Bucks free throws... There wasn't nay contact.

    Bucks need game 3 or it's over.

    Agree hard for Toronto now.

    Nuggets have forced a game 7 against Clippers with Lakers waiting for the inner.

    Celtics/Heat ECF starting Wednesday our time which should be a good series.

    Celtics really need to learn how to close games out.

    12 points up in the 4th quarter and they blew it.

    Boston were realistically the worse team in only one of the games against Toronto, yet they lost 3. They can't expect to blow Miami out, they will hang around so they need to close the games.

    Insane choke job.

    3-1 up.

    double digit lead in all 3 close out games...including up by 16 in the last quarter of game 5..

    and lose...

    unbelievable.

    Surely the Lakers have it all now.
