What stood out the most to me was Dion Waiters will have a major impact for the Lakers moving forward.

So Lakers didn’t beat the clippers with Lou Williams, Montrezl Harrell, bev, PG, and kawhi?? Why all a sudden are the analysts and commentators forgetting that they’ve beaten a clippers team w/ all their heavy hitters 🤨

A win is a win. No team dominates everytime they play. Brady won multiple superbowls by a field goal. A win by 2 is the same as a win by 20..

I will admit that while his shot was off LeBron’s defense in a few of those important possessions was dang impressive. I wasn’t sure he still had that in him.

Oh hush already, first regular game after being off for 4 months and a win is a win 🤷🏻‍♀ LeBron's game was off, but when it was crunch time, he was there with the defense.

I’m really confused here, did espn expect the lakers to blow the clippers out even doe they have two superstars still? I knew even without Lou and trez it will be a good game. Also the lakers could’ve literally won this game by 15 and they still wouldn’t have gotten the credit because no Lou or trez, it was a lose lose for the lakers

Stephen is a idiot. “I DoNt CaRe ThEyRe RuStY, I fInD MySeLf CoNcErNeD” they haven’t played in 4.5 months! What did he expect? The game was very good and the players will only get better, no different than any other sport. Every team has to get back into it after being off.

I'm comfortable because Lakers got the W. Thats what it's all about. We can win by 1 point every game. As long as we raising that trophy in October.
