Game Recap: Julius Randle, Roy Hibbert Shine In Lakers Overtime Loss

After dropping their first preseason game of the 2015-16 season, the Los Angeles Lakers (0-1) were back in action Tuesday night, as they faced the Utah Jazz (1-0) once again, for their last game of two, at Stan Sheriff Center in Honolulu, Hawaii in another sellout game.

What will Kobe Bryant make this season? Find out here!

The Lakers managed to keep things steady at the beginning of the first game of the preseason Sunday, trying to find some type of rhythm and led by six heading into the second half. The team soon fell behind, as they struggled to get shots in and were handed a 90-71 loss.

This time around, the Lakers hoped to keep the momentum going and show some improvement, both offensively and defensively, to stop the Jazz throughout the game.

First Quarter:

Kobe Bryant opened the first quarter with a jump shot from the right side and a drive through the middle by Jordan Clarkson gave the Lakers an early 4-0 lead. Alec Burks made in a reverse layup, as he put in the first points for the Jazz. Two back-to-back steals by the Jazz put them up 11-7. Center Rudy Gobert went in for the layup and was fouled by D’Angelo Russell, who hit the floor hard and was carried off into the locker room. He did not return to the floor for the rest of the game. Gobert was able to convert the free throw for a three-point opportunity, 13-7. Midway through the game, the Lakers continued to suffer both offensively and defensively, giving up shots and committing turnovers left and right, as the Jazz continued to run them over, leading 21-9. With 4:22 left in the quarter, the Jazz pushed their lead to 19, 29-10, as the Lakers struggled to answer back and put shots up. Metta World Peace added an assist to Michael Frazier for a shot behind the arc, his first three of the night, but the Lakers still trailed, 31-17. With less than two minutes left in the first quarter of the game, the Lakers went on an 8-0 run, but Gordon Hayward hit a three from the corner, to put the Jazz up, 34-20. With 40 seconds to go, Brandon Bass put up a layup from under the rim with the assist of Lou Williams, as the Lakers were down, 11. Both teams attempted to get a shot in before the end, but failed, as the Lakers entered the second quarter down, 35-24.

Second Quarter:

After a sloppy first quarter by the Lakers on both ends of the spectrum, the Jazz and Lakers exchanged points, though the Lakers still trailed, 37-26. Kobe managed to bank in a turnaround jumper for the Lakers, 39-29. Following Kobe, Julius Randle put in a shot of his own with a fadeaway from Clarkson, as the Lakers cut the deficit to eight, 39-31. Midway through the second, Clarkson dialed it in with a three-pointer, Lakers still down, 41-34. With five minutes on the clock, Bryant managed a turnaround fadeaway shot, cutting the deficit to six, 43-37. World Peace followed with a fadeaway shot, 43-39. Less than three minutes left to play in the first half, after trailing by double-digits, the Lakers managed to cut that to six, 47-41. World Peace continued to stay solid and managed to pull a three-point play opportunity, after being fouled by Rodney Hood, as the Lakers moved closer to take a lead, down by three, 47-44. With two free throws by Bass, the Lakers were down by just one. Clarkson went in for a layup down the middle, unfortunately missed, but Bass came right behind for the rebound to tip the ball in, as the Lakers took the lead, 48-47. The Jazz managed to get a shot in to beat the buzzer, to take a one-point lead, 49-48.

Third Quarter:

After being down by at least 19 points in the first half, the Lakers managed to cut that deficit by one, heading into the third quarter. Clarkson started off the half with a floater and Kobe put up a shot from behind the arc with the assist from Clarkson, as the Lakers took a 53-51 lead. A no look bounce pass by Bryant to Randle for the finish, as the Lakers up, 57-55, eight minutes left in the game. Nick Young on the floor with a shot behind the arc with the assist from Randle, pushing the Lakers lead, to five, 60-55. Midway through the third, the Lakers led the Jazz, 64-59 and definitely showed energy throughout the court. A fast break by Randle ended up with a two-handed slam, to push the Lakers lead. Though Utah with consecutive shots, put them not too far behind. Kobe answered with a shot from behind the arc, for another three of the night, as the Lakers were up, 71-68. Less than two minutes left in the third, Jeff Whithey managed to tie the game with a dunk through the middle. Both teams went back-and-forth for the remainder of the game, but entered the fourth tied at 78.

Fourth Quarter:

The Lakers got on the board first as Randle showed off his athleticism with a tip jam. The Jazz immediately responded with five straight points to take an 83-80 lead. Randle continued his strong play with another basket to bring the Lakers to within a point. A no-look pass from Randle to Williams led to a basket and foul to tie the game at 85. Rodney Hood hit a huge three to put Utah right back ahead by three. The Lakers would quickly tie the game again, but another Jazz three, this time from Alex Burks kept them ahead. Three free throws from Hibbert would tie the game and he would split another pair to give the Lakers a one-point lead. Young hit his patented step-back jumper to put the Lakers back up a point and a pair of free throws put them up three. Both teams found themselves at the free throw line, but it was Hibbert knocking down two more to keep the Lakers ahead by four. A deep three from Young gave the Lakers a six-point cushion, but a dunk from Utah dropped the gap back to four. A floater from Hood cut the Lakers lead to two points and a dunk from Withey tied the game with under 30 seconds left. Williams missed a jumper to win the game and this game would go to overtime.

Overtime:

Nick Young split a pair of free throws, to start the scoring, but a pair of Burks free throws and a turnaround from Hood gave Utah a three-point lead. Lou Williams hit a jumper to cut the Lakers deficit to a point. Utah would quickly respond with four straight points to go ahead by five with two minutes left. Young hit a floater to bring the Lakers back within three. A mid-range jumper from Williams cut the deficit to a point with under a minute remaining. The Lakers got a stop, but Young missed a three with eight seconds left. Trey Lyles hit a pair of free throws as the Lakers had one more chance to tie the game. The Jazz intentionally fouled Williams who hit both free throws. Hood would knock down two free throws for the Jazz to put them back up three with 4.7 seconds remaining. Williams missed the three and the Lakers fell 117-114 in overtime.

The only thing good to come out of this game was that they played better defense.

  • They played better defense, however, Hibbert and Bass impressed the most. Have to keep it real, but Randle played a so-so game. His first qtr play sucked, turnovers aside of having the ball stripped several+ times. This may be a looong season IMO, this is a critique as opposed to a rant but Randle should come off the bench.

    He has shooting problems and has trouble scoring inside. If Randle manages to make his way inside close to the paint he has better chances in finishing. However, once the 5 comes in and helps Randle’s defender that about shuts him down being he’ll throw it back out. Cool, work in progress but given he hasn’t shown much shooting consistency – that’s a problem.

  • It’s a good thing scott shaves his head because i know there will be patches all over his head from hair pulling watchin nick young shoot them shots, but goddammm scott why put sacre in overtime? WHYYYYYYYYYY!

  • Am Disappointed, Mr Scott can’t Coach, Fire him, he can’t manage the talent we have now. I don’t care whether if this 2 loss is preseason or regular season. He doesn’t give hope for playoff

  • I can’t believe I stayed up late to watch this mess again. I am a glutton for punishment. Next time those geniuses decide to have preseason in Hawaii they need to schedule the games earlier in the day. And yes J. Taylor I am throwing a tantrum today!

  • Were they the one’s shooting contested 3’s in front of two people when we only down one point in two possessions with like 10 on the shot clock?

  • no but who cares its preseason. we had the game won in regulation if he does not put nance in

  • Would have been Blessing in Disguise had #Russell got bounced out of the season, but supposedly it’s just a ‘bruised butt’ or something, lol

  • no but who cares its preseason. we had the game won in regulation if he does not put nance in

  • Nope, the Jazz played their bench mostly aside of Booker’s ejection and Favors injury (DNP). Still couldn’t pull out a win.

  • No Cj please don’t trust Scott, and his ideology. you need to create a winning mentality in your team by playing your best guys, and making things happen and let everybody earn his playing spot.

  • i care because nick young will do the same thing in regular season and i guess you can say he was also a factor in losing the lead.

  • Learn the time zone difference. Makes no sense to play in the middle of the day during a weekday. They get 2 preseason games it’s not like they won’t show a million replays anyways.

  • Loved the game. Don’t care that we lost. Much better effort than the first game (understandably considering it was the 1st game). Best news of the day is that Russell is okay, and is just butt hurt (LOL). Anyway, Kobe/Hibbert/Randle/Clarkson shined and that’s the best part. They look like they actually love playing with each other. Defending one another and building chemistry.

    Randle just gave us a glimmer of what’s to come. Kid can flat out ball. Thankfully Russell will get an entire year to iron out the mishaps and hiccups. Great game and effort and I’m sure the other guys will get more opportunities as the last couple games come around.

    Oh and to those who will still come in and hate on Scott.. it was he who held out Russell instead of letting the kid come back and play. But hey he doesn’t know what he’s doing right? SMH.

    And Sacre lost us the game. LOL

  • only hibbert played over 30 mins for our team. right. we played more players then the jazz right.

    in ot the jazz had their starting pg out there right???????

    what lakers starter played in ot ohhh thats right none of them right????

    dont be a fool

  • My Notes:
    Solid second game. And a lot of things became much clearer, and more clouded at the same time. The starting unit seems to be set, as well as the BOTH Young and Williams off the bench. Presumably Huertas is in the 1st rotation, but after that, I am not sure about the backup PF and C spots.

    Kobe looked much better, in rhythm and very comfortable in the SF position. His shooting was very efficient.

    Randle had a much better game and played above the rim instead of shooting. His passing ability was apparent. (16 pts! – 4ast!)

    Hibbert looks to be a steal. Beyond defense, his offensive contributions and free throws suggest that he is again one of the top centers in the league. He played 32 minutes before being benched. (16pts – 11reb)

    Williams and Young are looking like very solid veteran bench guys. And Williams might be the Free Agency steal of the summer! Williams is a consistent contributor, and Young seems to have upped his game a bit, but still has a streaky side. If Frazier doesn’t start showing more, I suspect that Young will be the team’s 3-point guy, and Frazier will be sent to the D-League… Although, Frazier’s 20 minutes tonight suggest there is a bigger picture for him in Scott’s mind.

    Clarkson kinda disappeared when he got the PG duties. His SG contribution was on par with a starter, but I was hoping for more. (12 pts – 28 minutes)

    Bass played backup center and could be the team’s small ball solution…. That *kinda* makes Black expendable.

    Kelly keeps appearing all over the place. He played SF, PF and i think C in one short stretch. He played well, but I am not sure he’s getting the green light to score. (15 minutes – 2 pts — 3 shot attempts)

    MWP played PF a lot, and I think more than he played SF. He contributed exactly as you’d expect… Solid defense, physical play, and veteran type scoring. He doesn’t look old as of today.

    It seems Scott is limiting the minutes, playing time, and shooting of the rookies. It seems all of this year’s rookies (save Russell) are being benched, limited in minutes, and deliberately told NOT to shoot. Frazier played 20 minutes and got 3 shot attempts…. I suspect this is part of Scott’s methods to develop them by limiting their shooting but giving them court time…(???)

    Nance finally showed up but much like the other rookies, he got zero shot attempts. His energy was noticeable however, and he handled the tip off…. His hops are amazing, his energy is great, but he looks a bit out of control at the moment.

    I am curious about back up center…. Black and Upshaw had ZERO minutes. And Sacre got 5 minutes in the final stretch of the game. But Bass excelled with 12 points in 15 minutes. — much confusion.

    ooh…. and the team fixed their transition defense issues from game 1.

  • Do you really have tunnel-vision for ONLY wins?

    There were so many positives tonight that they far outweigh whatever hollow victories come from winning a preseason game.

    smh.

  • You’re a douche bro,

    Hibbert played late in the fourth and did a decent job. The jazz rested their productive guys aside of Exum being the starter who happens to be out for the season right? So yeah they played their so called pg more minutes lol.

    Truthfully the Lakers will likely have a long season ahead b/c no one aside of Kobe and Lou can shoot the ball consistently. Most of their points came from inside and if a team can’t shoot the long ball in today’s game they’ll be left behind aside of players not being able to make their own plays.

  • agreed with everything but clarkson.

    clark was the pg on the court for 90% of his game tonight and he played better because of it

  • Kobe just said Julius Randle it Lamar Odom in Zach Randolph’s body. That’s the most accurate statement ever.

  • im not a douche your a fool. we out played the jazz in tonights game basicly from the opening tip if not for the russ injury wich took the life out of this team we would have won ever quarter.

Lakers fans we should do some kind of kick start together and buy this website to make it privately own, that way we choose who is allowed to comment.

  • Julius is a bit more muscular and in shape than Randolph and I think Randle also possesses a little bit of LeBron, but that is a pretty accurate statement by the Mamba

  • i dont like our starting line up it does not work russ and clark and randle are all walking on egg shells trying not to walk on each others toes.

    to me either russ or clark needs to be off the bench

  • not mad at all, the team played much better than the last game. Its a work in progress guys stop trippin. and remember this is not the set team coach has to play these other guys to try to weed them out. The way sacre and young played tonight though uggh. the other good thing is that we played our second unit and some that i would consider 3rd unit in the 4 th qtr and oT and we still almost came up with the win. i wish they would have played upshaw though, i imagine hell get pt in the upscoming games.

  • we were up until russ got hurt and it took the wind out of us. it took mwp coming in to reignite the team

  • agreed 100%. but to be fair if we dont play nance we win in regulation and dont go to ot so no scare at all

  • No diss lol, but let’s go back and watch the first qtr smh, It took him a little longer to get things going.

  • Wrong. Bron pulled Hibbert and Randle and Clarkson at the end when the game was close. That’s why we lost.

  • Wrong. Byron pulled Hibbert and Randle and Clarkson at the end when the game was close. That’s why we lost.

  • nance didnt play until ot. and actually he played better than scare. Nick young shot us out of the game in OT taking bad shots when he has missed his last 3 already.

  • disagree to a point imo if a person gets flage enough he should be banned but to say you cant comment here is a lot of power

  • Did you and I watch the same game?
    Randle had 16 points and was benched for the last 7 minutes of the game….as a rookie.

    I am not sure Bass has had a 16 point game in the last 3 years… [sarcasm]

  • ?!, in no way is this a diss to Russ but he’s still learning the ropes, so his impact isn’t felt much (YET). TO’s and lack of defense happened in the first qtr. Second unit helped a lot in the second.

  • regaurdless in a reg season game that unit will not be on the floor only up 4 with a min left much less in OT so its a mute conversation. BS just trying to get these guys pt so he can evaluate them

  • The Jazz played most of their starters in the final minutes of regulation and most of overtime.

    whereas, the lakers played:
    Young, Williams, Sacre, Nance and Frazier.

  • ?!, in no way is this a diss to Russ but he’s still learning the ropes, so his impact isn’t felt much (YET). TO’s and lack of defense happened in the first qtr. Second unit helped a lot in the second.

  • So obviously, you stopped watching after the 1st quarter and missed the rest of the game.

    And, NO,
    being down by 19 in the first quarter means nothing…
    especially when the game was tied at the end of regulation. If you are following, that means the team beat the Jazz in the final 3 quarters….

    wow.
    Another spoiled fan.

  • not disagreeing with you still does not change the fact that the lakers had the lead when russ went down and the whole starting unit kinda sleep walked for the next 3 to 5 mins

  • man nance didnt kill us scare and young likked us. nance atleast hustled and got 3 rebounds while scare turned the ball over missed assignments and looked lost. only good thing he did was the block shot and even then he could have been called for the foul

  • all of which was greatly improved in tonights game vs the team the espn experts picked as the wests 8th seed and to win about 50 games

  • Or,
    we lost because Scott decided to play his bench and development guys the entire OT period.

    Our starters clearly won their battle. And the backups won theirs (outside of the 19 point deficit afte Q1).

  • ?!, didn’t see Hayward, Booker (ejected), and Gobert = 12 mins the team’s real starters.

  • ?!, didn’t see Hayward, Booker (ejected), and Gobert = 12 mins the team’s real starters.

  • I agree.
    But I also accept that there is a reason why Scott isn’t playing Upshaw.

    I do fully believe him when he says, “I will put them in when they are ready.”

  • I think more than anything, the biggest takeaway were two plays the effort World Peace brought off the bench (diving for a loose ball) and the skirmish between Booker and Hibbert, in which Hibbert went to confront Booker after pushing Randle on a play. This was a sign of great chemistry and camaraderie amongst this team and hopefully they can build on that moment into the regular season.

    I’m rooting harder for MWP to make this team, his play against Randle is paying off, as we saw the steal Randle had on Burke for the fastbreak. Plus, the intensity he provided on both sides of the floor.

    Hopefully, we get a look at Upshaw and Holmes soon, Sacre has to go man I’m sorry

  • Trolling, keep it real, ain’t spinning shit tho they did play better D and Hibbert and Bass impressed the most.

  • Interesting perspective.
    It is reassuring that Clarkson can still be a PG. But i would hope that he would score a bit more than 12 points in nearly 30 minutes.

    Maybe, he was told to move the ball and hold back on scoring?

  • Truthfully, it’s no diss but just keeping it real. JC still struggles when pressure is placed up on him. Young wanted to play hero and didn’t see much team cohesion offensively. Just shooters trying to hit jumpers. FGA/M points to this too.

  • Not trying to get on your case but there was a world of great in this game.

    I wish we would have won too but Scott had his reasons for putting Sacre and Young in.

    It is what it is, but don’t overlook the good either.

  • Continuing to develop Clarkson’s PG abilities will make the Russell/Clarkson combo even more effective. The thought of a truly interchangeable guard combo makes me smile.

  • agree with everything you said. i thought the scuffle was great for team unity, actually. and i also wasn’t a fan of bringing back MWP.. but i love what he did out there, and i love the way he galvanized the team’s defensive effort.

  • Randle bounced back in the 2nd half but still not noticing true progress to believe he’d be a lock at the 4 = helping the team attain wins as opposed to just gaining experience as a rookie.

    Kobe played okay but it looked like his long ball shots were off = his timing/flow of jumper. Metta, Kobe and Hibbert helped set the tone defensively which allowed them to comeback from the deficit.

  • Yeah, same. Whatever Upshaw’s shortcomings are that are preventing him from getting minutes has to be better than Sacre being on the court.

  • agreed but imo its going to take a wile for them to be capable of playing together because both are scared to step on the others toes leading to both over thinking plays

    that imo is way clark was better after the russ injury

  • It’s interesting how his game improved when he played above-the-rim and relied less on his mid-range shot. And, I think, the coaches pulled him closer to the rim, and spaced the SF and Guards to accommodate the change……. whatever the coaches did made a profound impact on his game.

    If 16 points is what he can do with hustle and rookie energy, I can only imagine what he can do when his shot starts to drop.

  • But we don’t have a moderator that’s the problem. This is our home its OUR job to take care of it.

    when hes playing passive he overthinks which leads to missed chances to score

    Seems like you’re more supportive of them, then our own youngsters.

  • I know bruh. Even then, these delusional Laker fans should know we have a 1% chance of making finals. In all honesty, I’ll be happy having a 35+ win season. Making playoffs would be cool too, but that’s going to be pretty hard in the western conf with houston, okc, warriors, spurs, etc. Its going to be a tough season, but hopefully we show signs of improvement to help lure more FA’s next summer

  • imo the jazz are a solid team and i feel we outplayed them in both games. it makes me feel if healthy we can make the playoffs

  • I don’t get why some people can’t see what all of us saw in the Randle Hibbert 1-2 combo J Taylor.

  • That’s not exactly accurate. Getting O from the inside gives the added benefit of wearing the opposing team down as it takes more energy to play defense against it.

  • Scott gave Randle 26+ mins compared to Bass’s 15+. Bass played a better game for the time he was given but he’s a vet so he knows his roll. Go back and watch the first half and tell me who had a better half out of Randle/Bass.

    Cool tho, being that Scott’s giving Randle more play given that now’s the time but not noticing much consistency out of Randle which goes in his offense/shooting (jumpers).

  • lol dude im not even going to entertain you. you obviously really like scare

  • no but i cant blame scare for this loss when we lost the game in regulation not ot.

    scare played only in ot meaning hes not to blame for going to ot.

    in ot we were not trying to win the game it was more about the lakers drawing up plays for lou and young

  • Smh, there’s 6 pre-season games left. Let’s hope so for brand sake but things aren’t clicking offensively for all.

  • Good luck, what does flagging even do? He still has the ability to comment. This site has no fucken moderator its a fucken joke. Trolls own this site smh…Lakers fan have to take it in the ass

  • You just proved J Taylor and CJ’s point.

    He purposely allowed Randle more time in order that he can develop.

  • Whomever they were, Utah played their 2 highest scorers in OT.

    The Lakers played Young, Williams, Sacre and 2 Rookies.
    I am quite sure the Lakers would have won if they played Kobe, Hibbert, Randle, Clarkson, and ANY other 5th player.

  • I hate losing bro, even if it’s preseason, but Scott has so many new players that he has to take preseason as an opportunity to see what all these new guys are made of and also develop them as much as possible before regular season starts.

  • i dont need to he played well. untill the russ injurythat derailed the team for a good 5-6 mins

  • I’m with you, I also was unsure if I wanted him to get a spot over a younger player, but I think he’s much needed. I can see him having a pretty impactful year for this team, whether it’s mentoring Randle or being inserted to a game to play tough D. I believe Metta can be one of those signings that really helped changed the course of the season. I just really hope we can dump Sacre and add MWP and a few deserving young guys to the final roster.

  • I think that it’s possible… A lot has to go right, but possible.

    I will say however, Scott has to find a way to get consistent scoring from ALL of his guys (Kobe, Williams, Young, Clarkson and Randle). He has the firepower to win but he has to find a way to get them to play at a high level (as a group) on nearly every night. – Scott’s gotta coach his ass of this year!

    And, Mitch needs to pull a rabbit out of his hat with a mid-season trade.

    But even if we don’t make the playoffs with 45 wins, getting 40 wins makes a huge statement.

  • That’s possible but i haven’t been impressed with the overall team play on both ends

  • Ya def, if Russell proves to be a #2 pick, I feel like we are going to be an 8th seed threat. Hibbert played great today and showed signs of his all star days, Randle showed a lot of himself on both ends of the floor, and Kobe was just being Kobe. If everyone can continue what they’re doing, we have a good shot. Hopefully we are injury free. Btw not judging Russell’s poor shooting performances the past couple games like other misinformed laker fans because I know how hard Byron’s training can be on the legs. He’ll fasho come up when the season starts and hit those easy jumpers

  • im not even saying that scare lost us the game, true we lost the game in reg due to blown defensive assignments up 4 with a min left with the bench mob in. All im saying about scare IS HE SUCKS HAIR MONKEY BALLS, okay there i said it. dude has been on the team 2 3 years and hasnt shown anything worth keeping him. I wouldnt mind getting rid of young also since we have Lou but atleast he is a threat, scare cant even get rebounds, atleast nance had 3

  • Then stay focused bro.

    Snap out of it, and be patient.

    We will get there. We are taking puppies to a dogfight, but we didn’t get killed.

  • No, they didn’t bring that up being helping to develop his game. From their point of view, he was playing great and deserved to play OT. Field goal % shows they struggled offensively.

    This is a shooters league today, they struggled hitting jumpers and went 7-26 from the 3. Jazz’s FG% = 51% and 39% from the 3 pt line as opposed to the Lakers 43% (FG%) and 27% from the 3 pt line.

  • Benching Gobert could be the reason for his numbers. Nonetheless he was my lone bright spot from this game.

  • Off course, no one disputes this but there’s shooting (jumper) woes that need to be addressed. Defense is improving, to which it seems to come with them playing with more b*alls to put it bluntly. Kobe, Metta and Hibbert know what needs to be done defensively to which they set the tone today. That was obvious.

  • The jazz defense is only going to be top ten because of Gobert, who didn’t play after the first quarter. Favors is another huge part and he didn’t play at all.

  • I had a lot of concern that MWP would boot a very deserving guy to the DLeague, but as of now I’m not sure all of this year’s crop of rookies deserve a roster space on opening day.

    I still really like all of them as long term prospects, but it seems a few might need playing time and professional guidance before they are ready.

    We haven’t seen Holmes yet, or Upshaw, which might be an indicator of something. JBrown has shown promise, but hasn’t inspired enough to lock his spot. Frazier could shoot the lights out college but has been a dud so far….I am curious as to why Black didn’t play today, and why Bass outperformed him at backup center….

    Maybe MWP won’t steal a spot and will truly be the best option.

  • He def has a LeBron type build. If he works on his shot and stops forcing up unnecessary shots in the post, he’s going to be a big threat in the future!

  • Regardless bro.

    16 points for a rookies 3rd NBA game, are you kidding me, that’s ridiculous.

    Mind you, I don’t even know that his first game last year counts since he hardly played at all before going down with the injury.

    Big applause for Randle. So proud of the young guy.

  • Disagree, JC replaced him and he was the starting pg last season so Russell’s impact wasn’t felt much. Truthfully, ball rotation/facilitation lacks. The Jazz moved the ball MUCH better than the Lakers (which goes in hitting the long-ball) but that’s due to them being together a few seasons. Not much change has happened in Utah with relation to players being replaced as their youth development continues.

  • Is it possible to be impressed by a team with 13 new faces and only 8 days of training camp?

  • The Lakers are my life, nothing would I enjoy more than making the playoffs.

    And I honestly don’t see why we couldn’t.

    I hope we get a W next game.

  • agreed but about your trade idea it would not shock me if we traded for pau.

    the bulls look like major players in the trade market later in the year if they can make a big trade pau might have to be part of said deal. the lakers could rade bass and 2 filler contracts like say kelly and scare + a future second rounder or two for pau.

  • Seriously, did you guys see when they threw him the ball in the low post and the Utah defense switched to denying him from passing. Then he looked around, panicked when there was no one open and double dribbled. Pathetic, Sacre is a zero threat offensively, giving him the ball is a trap. Cut him already dammit..

  • I just wanna see a team that is geared to compete in the tough west by opening day

Then he looked around, panicked when there was no one open and double dribbled. Pathetic, Sacre is a zero threat offensively, giving him the ball is a trap. Cut him already dammit..

  • Unfortunately it’s not going to happen overnight, BUT today’s game was very promising of a good regular season.

    Let’s hope this progressive trend continues.

  • True, but points accrue differently when settling for more 2’s than 3’s which is what the game is looking like currently (6 pt league). This is just pre-season but come time to play the elite team’s they’ll have to start averaging a certain amount consistently just to have a shot at winning. Not sayin they should shoot 20+ 3’s but just enough.

  • Posted it in an earlier post. Likely comes down to better team cohesion b/c the Jazz’s team has been assembled for the last few years which much change taking place in Utah.

  • I agree with you for once Dim. Jazz didn’t even play Hayward after the first quarter and he was tearing it up.

  • I agree we are lacking in the outside shot game. Hopefully Russell will be able to work his magic with Louis and other perimeter players.

  • 1-3 2 fouls and 1 turnover is tearing it up? at that rate he does not even get to play 30mins before fouling out

  • He was blowing past Kobe and Metta like they were statues. Yup he was tearing it up. Another easy Jazz win without a couple of their best players. You all are in for a big surprise this season. God forbid Kobe goes down again we will win about 18 games.

  • Not overlooking, but there’s a lot of work ahead to exceed so called expectation in buying for a late seed playoff spot.

  • Will call it, if the Lakers happened to make the playoffs it’ll result from their defensive play and overall group cohesion offensively.

  • That’s why Scott has to play all these guys in order to properly asess our strengths and weaknesses and make the adjustments before regular season.

  • Go rewatch the game on youtube and tell me Kobe and Metta weren’t leaving them wide open for threes cause they can’t keep up…I will wait.

    Lol.

  • Dloading needs to improve his lower body conditioning to be able to take that type of blow aside of contact down the road (tho he can always step out the way when a big is charging).

    The key to his success in his career will be understanding ‘mind over matter ‘ scenarios/situations. That will come with time and maturation. Kobe would’ve bounced up that butt bruising. An ACL tear had minimal effect on 24, dloading will be a different player 2-3 yrs from now.

  • Kobe and N. Young hanging out at the 3 point line again, sigh. I hope that’s not what we’ll see in the regular season. It’s not like either one of them has EVER shot well from 3 over the course of a season.

  • So so game is average when comparing both half’s. The team struggles to execute plays (aside of players making plays for themselves) but the team played better when Kobe and Clarkson started to help make plays for others. Don’t think players are up to par with regards to their roles.

  • Possibly but given that Russ is still learning the game thus more concerned about facilitating currently it may be awhile before he adjusts to start seeing him shot the long ball more.

    Although, with Kobe’s help in helping him slow down the game and understand the game at the NBA level it will likely come sooner than later IMO.

  • i think the tough decision is what lineup will start and finish during the season? As of right now i think Clarkson is the option at pg to start the game, both to run the offense and defend the other teams best guard. I just don’t think Russell is strong enough to break down defences and get to the basket and quick enough to stay in front of his man.
    If the goal is to make the playoffs than imo you start;

    Clarkson
    kobe
    metta/young
    bass
    hibbert

    russell
    lou
    metta/young
    randal
    black/upshaw

  • The goal isn’t to make the playoffs, it’s to develop your #2 overall, and that means starting him as long as he’s healthy.

    And given the amount of time Clarkson has spent at the point so far, it’s not likely that he’ll start there (outside of injury, of course).

    Finally, don’t forget Huertas — he’s getting his immigration paperwork together and should be an above-average backup/below-average starter.

  • My biggest takeaay was the play where Randle made the defensive switch to a guard, smothered said guard, stole the ball from said guard and then outran said guard to the basket for the dunk.

    No way a 6’9″, 250 pounder should be able do to that.

  • The goal is your trio of youngsters. Russell, Randle and Clarkson all playing together, developing some continuity. Yes Clarkson is looking better right now, he’s also got a year of NBA under his belt. You need to let Russell find his way. The beauty of both guys is, they’re combo guards. You don’t have to bench Russell in favor of Clarkson. You simply put the ball primarily in Clarkson’s hands and let Russell shift to SG as he comes along.

    Forget about Kobe playing SG. He’s playing SF now. You have to understand Kobe’s game, where his spots are on the floor and what he wants to do. He doesn’t want to be guard anymore. Being an SF decreases his usage rate both on offense and defense. Last night he didn’t have to handle the ball too much and when he did, he was in his spots. He can’t do that at SG. He has to be more ball dominate, increasing his workload.

  • Black didn’t play because Scott wanted to give other guys a look. With 8 games in preseason, Scott gets to tinker with varying aspects of the lineup. I wouldn’t be surprised to finally see Upshaw in the next game. So far I’m not impressed by Brown or Frazier here in the preseason. Suckre showed last night that he just needs to go.

  • These things take TIME. Relax, it will not be pretty at first but it’ll get better as the season goes on. This team needs a playmaker outside Kobe, because putting all the passing responsibilities on him is not what you want him to do at this stage in his career.

    Huertas and Russell are both BADLY needed for the bench and starters. Offense struggles without both of them. Lou needs to do what he does best… score. Him playing PG is difficult for him. Young needs to be set up better because his shot selection is still self-made.

Clarkson may end up starting at the point even though he’s a better 2. Russell should be blended in slowly. I think the weight of expectations are affecting his game.

  • Russell going down didn’t impact them physically but mentally it did. The feeling was “here we go again”. Just like last year. Another one of our top picks going down at the beginning of the season. So yes it did have a huge impact for about 5 min. You can see their energy and spirit going down after Russell went down. So it’s not about replacing the player physically. He’s a rookie! But it did affect them mentally. If you didn’t see that then you’re just watching the ball bounce and judging on whether it goes through the net or not. Cause there was a lot of positives in this game.

  • I missed the game but I hear good things happened. After 5 SL games and the 1st pre-season game I will restate that I just don’t like Clarkson and Russell playing together right now. They look uncomfortable playing alongside one another. Plus I just think it’s a waste to start them both when one or the other can lead the bench unit.

    the reality is we have no SF who can even stay with the opposing team’s SF; Metta 35 years, Kobe 37 years and Young going to be 31 years. They all got lit up yesterday. Metta is too old and to have him come off the bench behind Kobe is absurd, they are going to get lit up every night.

    you’re not thinking clearly, Metta will have just as much positive reinforcement to our young guys as as a coach as being a player on the bench but at least he will not take away minutes and roster space the team needs to develop a young SF like A. Brown.

    Think a little…..

  • If we had won it would have been great morale for the 2nd unit but a loss at this point in OT means nothing at all; we played competitive with the 1st unit and could have won it but Bs pulled the starters in 4th Q.

  • nance wasn’t great but he did the little things. Went after rebounds, played D, hustled. Sacre in 5 freaking minutes in OT got 3 fouls (to give jazz 6 FTs) plus had a TO.

    This following that debacle in the first game where he and black let the Jazz Backup centers grab 10 rebounds in 18 minutes – turning a close game into a blowout. 2 losses – direct result of Sacre affecting the game.

    Outside of wins and losses, Nance needs development, he’s allowed to make mistakes and learn. Sacre is way beyond that. No more lessons for him. He can’t be hurting the team at the cost of youth, it’s a double whammy.

    again. He sucked badly in the first game too.

    Energy is contagious. Metta earned his spot by being that defensive spark plug.

  • yes, evaluating players would be awesome. What can we learn about that kid Sacre. And that’s the problem. This club needs to evaluate Upshaw. It would be great if Upshaw comes in for Hibbert for 5 minutes. Then right after, Hibbert can tell the rook what he did wrong while Black is on the court instead of Sacre. That’s player development.

  • Oh for sure. Metta was, to me, going to make the roster regardless of how he played. He’s a vocal motivator like Scott. Kobe is a work ethic (watch me work) leader. They need every form of leadership in order to increase the rate of growth for their young core.

  • Good improvement. However, the coaching staff won’t have 1+ weeks to prepare for a team

    Bench looks solid. Many good pieces. Mwp still has some gas left in the tank

    The Kelly and sacre experiments should come to an end. 0 progression. No point in trying anymore.

    I enjoy the bench. I enjoy hibberts new found inner passion. I enjoy Kobe. The starting line up still doesn’t convince me…as all players NEED the ball in their hands.

    Randle still looks like a raging bull in a small antique shop. Hopefully he’ll progress every game and develop some fluidity to his game.

  • They were not the better team at all every time our starters came back in we was in the lead. Had they played the whole game we would’ve seen a different result.

  • Okay, I just have to say that the lakers starters consist of 1 sophmore and 2 rookies with a rusty kobe in the mix along with hibbert. They’re going against a utah team that has players who have played for a year at least and have an nba season under their belt at least! You sound like a harsh critic or randall and he’s technically still a rookie. I’m not saying that you’re wrong about your observations, but he’s a rookie in terms of playing time and he’s getting it game by game. Just let him start and develop..we’re not going to win a championship…so give him as much time to develop and learn.

  • So are you saying the PG the Lakers drafted isn’t ready to play the position at the NBA level? Look, the Lakers project to have the worst or 2nd to worst record in the West. Utah, Denver, Phoenix, Sacramento and Minnesota all have better talent on their rosters. The Lakers should play Russell a lot. He may suck, but at least you will see if he is a good fit at the #1 or #2, whether he is a starter or a reserve, whether he has any defensive ability, whether he can develop NBA level quickness. Is he a real star? Is he CJ Miles 2.0 at the #2? Is he just an overhyped Kendall Marshall? You won’t know until you find out and the Lakers aren’t going anywhere but the lottery. They should tank again and draft Ben Simmons….now that guy is going to be a top payer in the league.

  • I don’t think he’s a bust, but i do have my doubts until he proves me wrong, i soo wanna be right about this kid! But he’s quite slow and delicate… hopefully he has a few breakout games but he’s no Kobe! Then again who is???

  • So? What’s more important right now? Developing these guys right for a better shot at next year’s top FA’s and an even better shot at the playoffs? Or stunt the growth of our guys just to win a couple more games? Answer is pretty obvious to me.

  • I hear u but the truth is russell is gunna have a tough time playing against the starting backcourt of most teams in the west, he can still get plenty of run with the second unit. As for kobe , he can matchup with the weaker opposing wing/perimeter player and can shift to the 3 and elbow spots on O. Let Clarkson be the primary playmaker. As the season goes , Randal can move in the Starting lineup if he earns it .The goal should be develop the youngster at same time not giving up wins. Doesn’t matter which mins during the game they see , its all gunna be learning and teaching anyway.

  • Funny. So after one… ONE, preseason game you can automatically tell that they can’t work together? SMH. You know how players “work together”? By WORKING TOGETHER. LOL. They already have a lot of off court chemistry, so the only way to get better together is to play together. To stumble together. And to fail together.

    You need to take a chill pill.

    jc is a combo guard that leans to pg.
    russ is a combo guard that leans to pg.

    both players want to play the same position.

    the lakers would be better starting one of them idc who and allowing the other to come off the bench for 15-20 games and then moving the none starter into the starting linup up then.

  • Dude… you are so wrong it’s almost sad that I feel the need to correct you. LOL.

    True, they’re both combo guards…

    But you’re DEAD WRONG if you think that Clarkson “leans” toward the PG position. DEAD WRONG. Clarkson is more of a SG by far by his desire to score the basketball. Russell is by far the more PG-oriented out there. He is going to develop into one of the best PG’s no doubt in my mind. I don’t see Clarkson with Russell’s vision and playmaking ability at all.

    You need to stick to cheering for the Lakers on the bleachers boy. You aren’t very basketball savvy. Sorry.

  • The better team??? Really?? At doing what??? LOSING, as usual??? Futile FAKER fan observation is so futile and dumbed down. Have some more Zombie Juice and read up on your L.A.FAKER fan spin bible for your next dumbed down comment. The better team, yeah at losing as usual, get used to it again. There was total lack of any system or cohesion in the game by the FAKERS. The Jazz looked like a high school yard bunch of pick up players. Both teams were in dire need of learning how to play at an NBA level. Yes, it is only the 2nd pre season game, however, there was little to say about either team in a productive manner, other than the Jazz dominated the paint again and Booker torched the FAKER defense for 27 points.
    It was a Ho Hum 2nd pre season game nothing more nothing less, other than another FAKER LOSS, which is nothing new for the hapless FAKERS of L.A. Right FAKER Fan c j? What does c j stand for …Court Jester???Ha, Ha, Ha, yeah your comment was really funny….Just a Thought!!!
