136-134 win in Sacramento, five in a row!

We’ve missed this little late night schedule. The ideal place to write a thriller. And if the game is also being played in Sacramento, it’s hard not to see the perfect setup to wake up the basketball gods and ask them to wave their bat. It’s sensational. Crazy. Panting. In the continuity of everything that we see today. Very big fox. Big Lakers.

A gorgeous homemade box score is HERE!

De’Aaron Fox is an All-Star.

Weird launch, a little bit against the corner, but need to go through the fox square. What if he takes that last shot? Already 34 points for him, 17 in the fourth quarter3.6 seconds on time to lift the ball, firing his shot from the spot “Stephen Curry vs. Lightning”, a stunt for the rest of the world… CLUNG, skin touching the bottom of the ring. The Lakers win 136-134, De’Aaron Fox blunders and insults the referee, Thomas Bryant puffs out his chest, Russell Westbrook is in heaven.

Fifth straight win for the Lakers. Big Expression Three Four has never been so conducive to this revelation. 116 of Los Angeles’ 136 points came from Dennis Schroder, LeBron James, Thomas Bryant and Russell Westbrook. However, it is difficult to group them under one statistic because their contributions are so different. Start, Russell Westbrook Becomes 2nd player in history “recently” for 20 points, 5 rebounds and 15 assists off the bench (the first being Slick Watts in 1977). A big start to 2023 for marsupilami. 22/46 shooting over the last three games, a HUGE role in this success in Sacramento. He has completely “out-mastered” Davion Mitchell and played the full Kings defense. Small space in screen output, drive between defenders, caviar/finish should be measured according to teammate placement. From the very great Russell Westbrook. And as luck would have it, his good form coincided with… a Lakers win. We can throw stones at him. Never say that it is useless.

Mandatory mention to Thomas Bryant, boss from A to Z, the Lakers’ mental leader in meetings with 29 points on 12/14 shooting, 14 rebounds and 1 block. Pure energy. The galvanic mass who – even if he finished in 25/12/7 – mostly won his duels against Domantas Sabonis. At every rebound rises euphoria, as if he was untouchable. The impression saw him return to the circle throughout the 4th quarter. And to the side a bit greatness, Thomas Bryant is the 4th Laker in history to win a game in 28/14 on at least 85% shooting. The other three? Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Shaquille O’Neal. Welcome among the greats (all things considered, uh, still Thomas Bryant).

giga LeBron James. The most fanatical of Fantastic 4. Such an impression repeats itself every two nights, but have we ever seen a player from 38 banks bring his team like that? Here again, we have to stay measured. It was a very pathetic Sacramento defense up front. However, the additions completed correctly: 37 points on 50% shooting, 8 rebounds, 7 assists, +15 add less AND this clutch essential heist 50 seconds from time. Three defenders, great relaxation to pass under contest from Keegan Murray, the referee validated 2+1. Pretty undeniable whistle uh, we determined, as things weren’t looking clear in the final minutes of the game. Many controversial decisions. One last foul that De’Aaron Fox didn’t see Dennis Schroder. It was this mistake – four seconds from the end – that sealed victory for Los Angeles. Two throws for Schro’. Money in coffers. 27 points at 4/5 from the parking lot, he’s not disgusting either.

A double win over the Hawks, Charlotte on the mat, the Heat and the losing Kings. The Lakers are surfing the best wave with five straight wins. Darvin Ham’s men now have two days off before departing Denver Monday night to try to take down the big boss of the Western Regions. What if they do? What if these dynamics sparked the awakening we have been waiting for two years – almost three? Here we again take tweezers and observe all this from afar. The game is crazy, but the Lakers are still the Lakers. It’s not out of the question that Russ shot at 17/4 on Monday and lipped the lip on the only lay-up of the night. It is also not impossible that Thomas Bryant proved to be “limited” in his ability to assemble matches. Great post 5 energy, great hand, but Nikola Jocic waiting for him and if he ate 45/15/10 in the head we would only be half shocked. Definitely not what we want. It’s great for a bit of freshness. What if the Western Conference could win a opponent last minute (while waiting for Anthony Davis), double the fun because LeBron James is on board.

Big win Lakers, big disappointment for Sacramento. A California derby played and won, De’Aaron Fox and co have yet to outsmart the team in the form of moments. Maybe with a little more investment from one side of the floor, the Kings would be more at ease. But with ” if “ we sent Austin Reaves to the All-Star Game. What is next.
