    • Senor Capalot says:

      @Julius Yapo not scary at all lmao LA just needs to play better transition on defense & keep the perimeter locked down it’s obvious davis can hold the paint on his own

    • JustTrynaLive says:

      everyone talking about last shot by poole, not realizing if lakers just clean up this 14-0 run or ham calls a timeout, this not even a close game. Lakers controlled damn near whole game

    • zogjones says:

      @Craig Silver I only watched these highlights–was he in foul trouble? why’d the bench him?

    Hope Davis continues to play like this.He’s unstoppable just don’t get injured.

    Crazy game! I love the energy. Lakers just got to watch out for the 4th quarter Warriors. They always make a comeback in the 3rd and 4th, had me getting nervous. I’m glad we were able to hold on and get the W but there needs to be adjustments made defensively for the Lakers. AD being the AD we knew in 2020! Hoping he stays healthy cause he will Always Dominate if he’s healthy and motivated.

    This was the best. California rivalry with all of the best players, just the best of the best kind of game. Feels like this is the championship.

  6. Arthur R says:

    The Lakers played their best game of the season. Very impressive defense and great coaching.

    • Long Neck says:

      @T Baskerville i agree completely.

    • rfpchar says:

      This was not their best game. Their shots are really not falling. The gm6 against memphis is their best game offensively and defensively.

    • 2Hot2Handle says:

      AD certainly did. The game wouldn’t have been close if the Warriors weren’t hitting absolutely every shot from 3

    • Ryan says:

      Not the best, strong win nonetheless

    • TheBetterOdds1 says:

      @Dean Talamantes all the great coaches make their teams play through runs Pop, Phill and many others. You can’t bail them out everytime they gotta beable to get punched in the jaw and punch back

  7. Cameron Bouldin says:

    Suffered 4 strokes 3 heart attacks watching this so happy we won game 1 go lakers 🎉

  8. George Trevor Tan says:

    Davis can’t be stopped when he’s healthy. The collection of role players is also brilliant.

  9. Given2Fly says:

    What a game!! From a fan who’s followed since the late ‘80s. Last nights game was refreshing! #LakerNation

  10. Joseph P says:

    LeBron has a real team now. Happy for him. Davis playing to his potential, Russell is big time, and role players like Vanderbilt and Reeves making plays.
