If the Lakers win, the West standings will not be determined until Sunday afternoon.

Monty’s fascination with Shamet is really bizarre.
Well, there is no starting four and you have to balance the bench too. I like Ross and TJ playing together. They seem to have a vibe going already.

Unfortunately, Warren is out with a reported illness.

I imagine the Lakers plan is to pound the smaller Suns inside.

I kinda get it. He has the physical tools, he can play a little bettee than average D and he is an ok ballhandler and in streaks a good shooter.

in other words he has potential, it’s just his bball iq seems to suck.

I don’t think it’s his iq more his technique. His shots are just so flat or he’s leaning on shots.

If I were to guess, I think Shamet would play better as a starter. Now watch him prove me wrong.

To me hat is his iq. Shoot on balance and you will have more success.

Biz set up nicely for a basket as he was blocked earlier.

Lebron gets a call from driving it in slowly. Cmon

The lakers crowd is annoying with their ooh and aahs
