They either play elite or they suck big time, they lost to bulls for Christ sake, how do you lose to Knicks, Cavs and bulls but than play against OKC and win ? It is hard to bet on them lately so I am going to refrain having them on my parlay for a long time until Lebron comes back.
Weird isn't it. When you expect them to beat lowly teams, they lost and when no one expect them to win against the highly touted them like OKC, they rise to the occasion. So we can only speculate that they are still searching and trying to be consistent without Lebron James in their line up.

Kuzma, Zubac and Lonzo Ball stepping up to get a big win in overtime against the Thunders.

Damn Zubac. Coming from the bench and still managed to contribute 26 big points for the Lakers in 28 minutes. Credits also to his great passer teammates who always found him uncontested below the rim.

OKC literally blew a 17 point lead. Almost a loss on game regulations if Westbrook not fouled on the dying seconds resulting on OT.

Missing Link: Brandom Ingram. 8 points (1/9 fg) for "38" minutes. Inconsistency at it's finest lol.

Improvement: Bench players combined for 61 big points.

I watched the whole game and one thing I can say, it's all Westbrook's fault, he keep shooing instead of passing the ball to find his teammates, they settle too much in outside shooting and they didn't manage their bench properly resulting to heavy minutes for the starters which played an average of over 40 minutes, that's a lot of time and in the end they still loss. 

Westbrook's shooting is really awful, he took 30 shots and only made 7 of the attempt, a smart player should adjust at this situation, he didn't.

Anyone watch Cousins debut as GSW against the Clippers? He chip in 14 points including 3 out of 4 shooting at the three point line but fouled out as the Warriors beat Clippers 112-94. He looks healthy as well. They're really the team to beat right now.

They are also in a roll winning their 7 straight games. And just look at their starting five, all previous all-star player. That's sick!!!

You can blame westbrook all you want on offense but normally OKC is a great defensive team whereas Lakers found a way to score even if we take away the win from them because westbrook sucked on offense, it is still half their success on offensive side. There has been a big talk on how Kyrie called Lebron and talked about how he was the young guy once and took what was given to him granted and now sees how the young guys he plays with is doing the same and whatever.

I have watched a clip of inside the nba and Charles literally told all what I believed, Kenny as well. If you are going around telling people you are the leader, you are not the leader. You need to BE the leader not tell people you are. If you tell people you are the leader then probably you are not, others have to tell you that you are the leader. Lebron never went out and said he was the leader of a team but no matter which team he was on he was the leader.

I think James Harden is a very overrated player.  First off he barely gives any effort on defense, there are many clips of him just letting players blow by him without doing anything.  Referees are giving him too many foul calls and it has gotten to a point where he plays to draw fouls pretty much.  He likes to get intertwined with other players and he gets his foul shots 9/10  times, very unfair.

I watched them play against the Bulls and it seems they watch what the other team does and adjust their play for it.
Just like Chicago. They can't score very many points if their shooting is off so LA does the same. They don't try and push for the score running up and down the court like the GSW or Houston do in their games.
Atleast this is what the announcer tried to explain what their play is like without Lebron in the lineup.

Maybe but he proven himself worthy to be the leader of the Rockets, AFAIR, it was Jerymy Lin and James harden who started during the rebuilding but Lin was inconsistent that's why he was traded if I'm correct to the other team. Now, it's harden's team and though they did not win the championship but the level of success the Rockets are going right now is impressive, main reason why Harden sign with a good salary for his extension.

It still boils down to championship ring in my opinion. You can't be one of the greatest if you can't even deliver 1 ring to your team. Jordan is a scoring machine during his prime but play very very good defense same as Kobe and Lebron. He can be remember as one of the greatest scorer we have seen  but he needs to bring that ring in the next 2-3 years in Houston to be in the argument for the GOAT in this era.

They definitely a harder team to beat specially that the Boogie is already getting into the line up and rotation. He didn't spend lots of minutes though, but he already contributed to the team that makes this GSW very difficult to beat because of so many options to score specially with the big 5 (I did not say unbeatable).

Looks like LA lakers are a team killer on the road.
They beat OKC and are up 20 points against Houston on their own court at half time.
Harden can not hit his shots and had to sit off most of the second quarter because he was not producing any offense.
If LA can beat them then they are a team to content with Lebron coming back maybe soon.

Looks like LA lakers are a team killer on the road.
They beat OKC and are up 20 points against Houston on their own court at half time.
Harden can not hit his shots and had to sit off most of the second quarter because he was not producing any offense.
If LA can beat them then they are a team to content with Lebron coming back maybe soon.

But they didn't beat Houston, the game went into overtime and them fell short 138-134. Harden his usual self, but he did get a lot of support from Gordon, specially that three to sent the game into overtime.

Ball got injured though, that might chance the game because after the left, Houston takes over and it was a different ball game. Next for the Lakers is GSW on Monday.

Yeah right, houston was able to escape this in overtime, harden and gordon have a great game almost 50 again for harden, 48 points to be exact a lots of talk about this guy and he's continue showing why he deserve the respect coming from those who believes in him, houston became a solid team again after drexler and olajuwon as harden carrying the team together with the rest of his team mates.

Well, they are showing that they can cope up with other good teams out there even though their star player is not on the court. They beat OKC on the road and ALMOST beat Rockets on the road too. Its just that Harden exploded again and gained his 19th (IIRC) straight 30+ point game. Ball is injured too which I hope is not will take a long time for him to recover.

Yes they are getting stronger and it went to overtime and they still lose. But to be that close against an offensive team it is still a great game for them.

I am in doubt though with the Lebron coming back.
They are getting a lot of good chemistry with this new form of team.
If I am Luke Walton, I will analyze first what will be the effect if Lebron is on the floor and if not. Will they still play the same way against OKC or they will be afraid to create shots just because Lebron is there.

I want them to stay the same and not rely with stars. They are the ones who should be the stars by now.

Lakers eventually lost to Rockets on overtime but that is fine, this is lakers that is missing Lebron and they still came very close to winning against Rockets who where conference finalists last year with just 1 game away from potential champions.

The last shot of Eric Gordon that went in was the basic explaining of Lakers in recent years. They defended everyone amazingly, they were all over the court, they covered the pass lanes, as soon as Eric Gordon got the ball someone was right on him and everything defensively looked amazing and perfect. Then when he was shooting the person who was like ONE inch in front of him didn't even put his hands up. That is Lakers for you, do everything perfectly but at the last second instead of raising your arms and defending properly just let go of the shooter with a fear of fouling.

I watched the whole rockets vs lakers game last night until the end.
LA dominated through out the entire game but still lost.
Even with Zo Ball getting injured they were still playing well with Stephenson shooting those three pointers right from the first seconds of the third quarter. It looked like even with another one of their star players out they were going to show everyone they can play as a team and not need them as much the media puts it out to be.
Without Lebron, Rondo and now Ball, they are still a team that can beat you at home.
It took over time and another big show by Harden to put it away and it was only by two points.
Their next showdown is against Golden state which have won their last seven games.
So with them having so much confidence coming into this game there is a chance for the lakers to beat them tomorrow in LA.
It will be a really good matchup to watch and it being a holiday game.
