Los Angeles Lakers Vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Highlights

The Los Angeles Lakers wrap up a five-game road trip when they square off with the Dallas Mavericks. Kobe Bryant will be back in action after a two game absence to rest an aching back, and the Lakers will have to adjust after playing relatively well without their aging star. Dallas offense gave the Lakers fits when the two teams met for the third game of the season, and improvements will be needed if they hope to have a shot at picking up their second win of the year.

Check out the highlights below:

Let’s go Lakers!

  • Lakers win 103 95. Russ 27p 8a 6r!!!!! Russ is the Lakers future supperstar!!!!

  • Hey Incendy, I have become Russ fan boy! Shall we call us Russofools? Like the Lintards!!

  • Wow Russ fans club is bigger than Lin’s. What luck Lakers!!! There goes Lin, now comes Russ!!! SOB!!!!

  • First DFenders game is tonight too. You can watch on the Dleague YouTube channel semi live

  • They need to overhaul the d-league, IMO. It is a player graveyard. They should mix it up and have the d-league playing games against professional leagues in other countries.

  • I know. I get it. Lin is playing well. Much better but Russ will get better. He will be supperstar!

  • A lot of good players in the league spent time in the DLeague, but I do wish the would make it more like AAA Baseball where you could own prospects on NBA teams etc. You sort of can but roster sizes are so limited.

  • Lol, Lin is putting up much better numbers than Russell is in less minutes coming off the bench. 13 ppg, 44% FG, in 22mpg. Obviously, Russell has more potential, but it’s not Lin’s talent that’s the problem. The Lakers organization is the problem. Lin signed with the Hornets for $2 million a year. The Lakers pay Louis Williams $7 million a year.

  • Yeah, they could have signed Jeremy Lin for 1/3rd of what they pay Louis Williams. Lin has no ego, he wouldn’t be trying to intimidate Russell into giving up the ball when he should be shooting.

  • Lol, I saw a report that said Danny Green is the greatest player by far to ever come out of the d-league. That’s a grave yard, IMO. I remember they sent Thabet to the D-league. He came back worse than he was when he left. It’s like going back to college except no development takes place because the coaches are only concerned with winning so they can move up to the NBA as an assistant.

  • Lin is a cool little bench player but I wouldn’t want him unless he’s playing behind a top 5 pg where he doesn’t play more then 15 min

  • Lead gone every time! We never hold on to end of quarters! Always faulter! Guys missing assignments and shots!

  • Russ got it going! Not doing too much. Pick his shots. Foul when necessary. Riding the Kobe Clarkson hot hands!!! Future supperstar!!!

  • 30% of all NBA players have spent some time there. Very few start there though. For example Clarkson spent some time there last season.

  • Clarkson will say anything. He said he was happy to have D’Angelo Russell come in and take his PG position.

  • Byron Scott plays the softest and weakest players the most minutes and out of position! … we’re tanking man! SMH

  • Thank you, lol. He shouldn’t have been in the d-league in the first place. Clarkson pretty much fell in the Lakers lap and Scott almost screwed that up.

  • He gets to the line a lot. A lot of times he just goes up for the shot because he knows he’s going to get fouled. His FG% takes a big hit, but it’s not his true field goal percentage.

  • Nope. He was stopping the offensive flow. He’s taking shots within the offense tonight.

  • Yes. Especially when we have a hero in the team who decide he will shoot 3s.

  • Kobe started hot, but you can just tell by the end of the game, if he keeps taking those bad shots he will end up at 33 percent FG.

  • Trade lou Williams, kelly bass and sacre for some tater tots and a shaq soda!

  • Soooo…when will we get to see Tarik? Bass is obviously struggling at center. Lou needs to stay @ the sg position. Huertas was a hit and miss. Gotta find another backup pg soon.

  • he stated the game taking good looks at the mid range twos. he needs to stop taking threes. unless they are wide open.

  • I never said anything about defensive but that will come with time and coaching whenever they get that

  • Before tonight’s game Kobe was taking stupid shots. TONIGHT he is not. You’re very immature, I’d appreciate it if you’d stop replying to me. Thanks.

  • we again the stats disagree with you. the offese this season is better when kobe is on the court

  • They cool with the tank commander they’re not going to, i wish they would tho!…
    If they fire him will be a shock and will prove to us they mean business but they don’t. They wanna blame tanking on development in hopes of the draft! We’ll make the playoffs when the FO wants us to, meaning they will hire a coach and players to get us there!

  • Oh yeah. How true. Should Russ take the shots!! He has hot hands now with 3p shooting 33%!!!!!

  • Im missing the game! Hibbert foul trouble? Williams a no show? Russell has some assists?

  • Im missing the game! Hibbert foul trouble? Williams a no show? Russell has some assists?

  • Russ has superb vision and sublime passing skills. Give him ball and let him dominate!!!!

  • But the NUMBERS show the offense is better when Kobe plays though. Lol … they’re going to come after you next.

  • Silly stat. A few Mavs are having better game than Williams, but they are – in that stat. Zaza for example 4-5 with 11 boards, yet he has a negative and D-Will a positive.

  • Russ is stealing their thunder that’s why! Russ has the biggest fans base now besides Kobe.

  • Clarkson super selfish! He had randle right there and took a dumb assess shot!

  • Clarkson has really been exposed in terms of his playmaking this season, my goodness some possessions he is dribbling the air out the ball for no reason. And this starting unit is solid but the problem is Julius can’t shoot so there is no room in the paint for anyone to drive and kick smh.

  • This team really has no plan on either ends of the floor. Oddly enough, Wes Johnson was right. Scott can’t be the coach going forward. I don’t mind if he finishes this year because it could end up in the Top 3 Pick, but going forward he needs to be gone. Basically anyone who touches the ball gets in an iso

  • This team need some Swaggy 3s. When he gets hot the team shoots better for some reason. But he isn’t even touching the ball.

  • Bass has sucked in every game I’ve watched so far. He’s been out of position and off balance defensively too frequently.

  • Cool bro, anyone in the country would call mwp one of the best defenders ever. Look up some Ron artest in Indiana highlights, maybe you’ll change your old mind

  • Randle starts every play 10 ft away facing up. He needs mix it up and recieve the ball from the post. Kinda reminds me of MWP bowling his way to rim when he drives.

  • right now, i’d rather have swaggy or mwp instead of lou. because lou can’t shoot to save his life

  • I think they ought to use Kobe at the point sometimes, since he can barely shoot anymore. Kobe is much better inside the arc. Let’s just accept that fact of life and hope Kobe can, too.

  • Metta is not even Ranked Top 10 of Perimeter Defenders, he only made All-D 4 times dude in 18 yrs. And they weren’t All 1st teams. My point is he was a good defender, but you’ll are overrating him.

  • If you’re talking best defenders of the 2000’s, mettas name will come up. I would’ve loved to see prime metta play with prime Duncan like Bowen

  • They are giving the Mavs unlimited open shots. It’s going to be ugly when we play real teams.

  • Byron Scott be trying too much hocus pocus gumbo pot luck shizt in a game, i hate this dude as a coach man sheesh just throw any lineup out there and hope for the best!
    would be resolved if he adjusts the dam lineups from the start!

  • right? i don’t think Byron can think of any other way to get points so that’s what he does instead

  • i don’t know about you, but when i first heard about the Lou Will signing, i was just thinking, ‘why?’ We already have Nick Young off the bench to do the scoring so why did we sign another dude that does the EXACT same thing? I mean, we could’ve used the money given to Lou to get a good backup SF or veteran C

  • Good help defense from Hibbert tonite. All the Laker guards were playing matador defense.

  • i said that too. right now, swaggy is better because he can at least hit those threes. lou doesn’t even serve as a spot-up shooter, he needs the ball all the time. this is a disaster.

  • Again, only 4 All-D teams in 18 yrs. That’s not great at all. He was good, but c’mon guy.

  • crap…everyone new Kobe was going to launch an off balance 3…and miss

  • He has these brain farts, but he can stay in front of his man so there is some hope.

  • Everybody loved Metta yesterday now they are back to wishing Jabari Brown was on the team.

  • He’s been burned a lot. Plus he always plays the weaker scorer with Clarkson guarding the better one.

  • I mean, Lou is great, but we didn’t need him. I agree with you about trading him. We can probably get something good for him. I’m pretty sure there are teams out there that are looking for a scorer off the bench

  • when lou hogs the ball all the time, the rest of the guys are left in the cold.

  • That’s how we lose. Only a few feets away for the 2 pts but Metta needed to shoot a 3 when he is missing the whole night. Amazing way to lose a game. Kobe, trying to be hero again with 3s. Come one! You were never a good 3pt shooter.

  • just one off-night. metta has been our MVP so far. this season. no kidding.

  • BS ‘pee brain’ Scott thought it was better to keep a suited up Sacre on the bench than invest in potential lights out shooters like Frazier and Holmes.

  • The refs took us out! Kobe and metta tried to save us with the 3 cuz we dam sure not getting calls in the paint, good game tho! Besides Byron Scott and his ideology, i know he’s tanking! Can’t fool me! All the other teams and coaches are consistent, win , lose, or draw. We’re the only team playing what the hello ball

  • This team can dream about winning 10 games this season, but it won’t happen.

  • No way, man. The Lakers are playing better. They are figuring out things. We will start to win soon

  • lol but philly and brooklyn (for cetics) are losing better. we need to lose to both those teams to make a stronger case.

  • Lol, I don’t think so. The Lakers team is really taking advantage of Russell by pressuring him to give up the ball when he should be looking for his own shot. If they let Russell cook like they let Clarkson cook Russell would be doing a lot better.

  • Russ played great. Near triple double stats. Superb defense. Should have more PT. Russ > Okafor

  • Our defense are truly better. Look at Magic today against Utah. Look at Mavs against Clippers. We are figuring out things. In january we will be much better. Nice game for Clarkson, good bounce in back.
    Lou Will has to start to make some shots

  • Ugliest game of BBall all season, from both teams. Just horrible to watch.

  • 5 assists and 6 boards is still a ways to go for that TripleDub though.

  • Time to play Russell 35mts a night. Mudiay is playing 38mpg for nuggets.

  • Not sure if Randle should start no knock against him, I would just personally like to see nance get a chance.

  • doesn’t help when Lou keeps trying to finish layups to try and get free throws. makes the whole offense stagnant. when lou’s on the floor, everyone else goes into hibernation. you saw the shot Lou tried to take against Magic and during another loss before (can’t remember).

  • A question to D`angelo haters… If he shoots bad like Okafor (3-18 FG today), Byron will let him play how many minutes?

  • Lou is just a conman, he thinks more about getting to the line than he does actually taking a good shot or at least concentrating on hitting one.

  • That was sort of my point. Felton was just applying a bit of pressure and Russell was giving the ball up fast. Felton is no defender.

    Maybe Russell shouldn’t be playing the 4th.

  • Okafor is still shoting 50% this year with 20/7 while Russell is barely touching 40% and 5 or 6 PPG.

  • Only reason i can understand playing bass over black is to trade him as soon as dec 15th roles around. I think either swaggy or lou will go with him

  • our D has improved A LOT since MWP and Nance started getting minutes. No doubt. but now the offense is stagnating because of Lou and BS BS.

  • Very well. He`s way more comfortable. He shows even a little swaggy it ball handle. And make a nice shot on the 4qt

  • Clarkson does well when the other team doesn’t do their scouting report. Once they figure out that he is the best player on the team then all of a sudden he disappears. Quiet as it’s kept his defense is really bad also. The only difference between him and and Russell is that he isn’t as absent minded as Russell.

  • We failed to score 100, assists were back down and so was the team FG %. Offensive flow was straight stagnant.

  • I’m surprised Young has played better than Lou. Young was having a poor season last year and has improved, while Lou coming off the 6th man award is struggling. Lou should’ve been off the court in 4th, and maybe rolled with Young.

  • seriously man. we made a big mistake signing this ballhog. i bet we can get a nice piece for him. time to trade this guy. we can get a solid spot-up shooter for 7million.

  • If Russell looks bad like Okafor you mean 20ppg and 50% shooting? I think we would all declare Russell the next superstar.

  • 65-60 lal over dal with kobe on the court in 32 mins

    30-17 dal over lal with kobe on the bench 16mins

    given a 48 min game the lakers with out kobe only score 51 points to dal 90 points

    with 48 mins of kobe the team scores 97.5 points to dals 90.

    so kobes presence on the court was worth 46.5 points and his defensive effect was the same as the rest of the team.

    again the lakers are better when kobe plays

  • Everyone seems to perform their best when the Purp and Gold is facing them.
