TweetDeck : LAL already have 3 triples off their bench, with kuz, Kentavious C.P and Jared Dudley all hitting their first from deep. KCP added 2 of 3 FT’s after drawing a 3-point foul, and LAL lead 34-25.
TweetDeck : Out of the time out, LeBron James started rolling, scoring 7 straight points on 3 straight makes, which began with a layup after he stripped Jarrett Allen in the BKN paint. LAL up 13-8. Time out, Nets.
TweetDeck : Not a sharp start for the Lakers, who’ve hit 2 of 8 shots, turned it over twice and not gotten back in transition twice, leading to a pair of Taurean Prince layups and an 8-4 deficit into the first time out at the 9:00 mark.
TweetDeck : Earlier this week, Aaron Larsuel and I broke down our Western All-Star teams on the Official Lakers Podcast, featuring LeBron + AD. Rest of my list out West: Kawhi; Doncic; Harden; Jokic; Lillard; Gobert; CP3; Mitchell; Ingram; Booker: apple.co/36k6ujg twitter.com/Lakers/status/…
TweetDeck : * LeBron James and Anthony Davis will both start in the 2020 NBA All-Star game, with LeBron James serving as a team captain as the leading vote getter. They’re joined by Kawhi Leonard, Luka Doncic and James Harden from the West.
Tweetbot for iΟS : Frank Vogel said he’s pleased with the Lakers effort and record to this point, but is taking no victory laps at this point of a season where they have much bigger goals: “We’ve accomplished nothing.”
Tweetbot for iΟS : Anthony Davis will start tonight. Frank Vogel said AD tweaked the gluteus maximus area that kept him out recently last night vs. the Knicks, but he played through it and is good to play tonight as well.
Tweetbot for iΟS : McGee’s absence will also mean more small lineups for LAL with AD at center (provided he plays - he’s listed as “questionable” - to open up more PT for Kuzma and possibly Dudley (against his former team). Brooklyn is without DeAndre Jordan and will play smaller than usual.
Tweetbot for iΟS : JaVale McGee is out tonight in Brooklyn with flu-like symptoms. Would expect Dwight Howard to start at center opposite Jarrett Allen, but we’ll see what Frank Vogel says momentarily.
Tweetbot for iΟS : The Lakers come into this game 5th in defensive rating. They opened the season fluctuating between the top 3 spots before falling several positions as the offense kept climbing (currently 4th), but the defense has been better of late. They were 3rd before the Boston blowout.
TweetDeck : Injury update for LAL tonight at Brooklyn: Rajon Rondo (avulsion fracture of right ring finger) and Kyle Kuzma (sore left ankle) are probable, and Anthony Davis (gluteus maximus contusion) is questionable.
