    The Celtics needed this win more than La Lakers. The Celtics was on a losing streak before this game but that was forgotten. The Celtics was hot. Last night the Clippers lost to Hawks even though Kawhi, George, Beverly didn't play, Max talks about there bench they should have one last night against the Hawks without Trae Young

      yah kna whats funny? Lakers gave up DLo, LouWill, Ingrams,LBall who all can be playmaker and better 3rd option player than Kuzma who can't defend at his size, can't make

    LOL, his formula was always been getting more superstars in a weaker conference. Then he moved in the west, didn't even the playoffs.

    I saw Jordan go out and play every night like it was a playoff game. Never took his foot off the throttle. Even at 35. Which is why he was still leading the nba on scoring and was MVP.

      LeBron was playing in the East so he had no worries taking time off, he’s now playing in the West, teams are more evenly matched

    The lakers win a game, they are the champs
    The lakers lose a game, they are still the champs according to the laker loving tv talking heads.
    I can’t wait until the lakers exit the playoffs in May, then these people will quit shining them up....

    Bron’s formula to success was not load management, it was super teams. Which he’s now playing on another loaded team. There’s no reason to doubt the Lakers

    The steph analogy was the only one that made any sense. Had GS not gone after 73 wins they would have won. They were gasping for air after 2 back to back 7 game series, which both felt like finals kd and the thunder then brim and Cleveland. Had they only one like 55 games neither series would’ve went 7 games. I hate the coulda woulda but I don’t think of any team in history outside of those bulls that could over come that challenge especially coming from a loaded conference
