Lakers 3-0 Week NSS Report!! 4 Straight Wins, Playoff Clinched!!

Lakers 3-0 Week NSS Report!! 4 Straight Wins, Playoff Clinched!!

                Lakers beat 76ers, Bucks and Clippers in the same week, all for the 1st time this season.  Lakers’ this week also were the 1st team to clinch in the West.  What a week full of nonsense for the Lakers’ who put a silence to all the haters and doubters and fully stepped up to the challenge.  The Laker’s are now 49-13 with 20 games left to their season, let’s review some Laker’s Nonsense.

Lakers Win 120-107 Vs 76ers, Anthony Davis 37 Pts, 13 Reb

                The Lakers’ spoiled a big night by Glenn Robinson III, who put up 25 pts from the bench.  Even short handed they 76ers put up a fight but couldn’t get over a Laker’s team that was on a mission to split the season series.  Unfortunately for the 76ers was a downhill trip while in LA losing to both Clippers and Lakers.  76ers are fighting a hard battle trying to get back into the top 4 in the East, but missing Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons is hard to overcome.

Lakers Win 113-103 Vs Bucks, Top of the East not enough for LeBron’s 37 Pts, 8 Reb, 8 Ast

                If it seems like every night LeBron is flirting with a triple double is because he is.  For a game that had very high expectations from both sides it did not disappoint.  The difference in this game was the big 3rd quarter by the Lakers.  Davis had a consecutive game with 30 pts, got himself 9 Reb and 2 blocks.  The Lakers split the season series vs the Bucks, who are the favorite to win the East.

                Maybe to soon or maybe just nonsense but some concern (or whispers) could be forming on the side of the Bucks who had a tough loss vs the Miami Heat.  The Bucks will also be without Giannis Antetokounmpo for the next 2 games at the Suns (Sunday) and Nuggets (Monday March 9t ) due to minor joint capsule sprain his left knee.

Lakers Win vs Clippers 112-103, Davis 3rd game consecutive game with at least 30 Pts

                Lakers’ win 4th straight game by beating the Clippers who were leading the series 2-0 and were undefeated when all their starters play.  This was the most watched game out of all 3 games due to that the Clippers are the Lakers’ biggest threat in the West.  The Clippers stars were hot with Leonard 27 Pts, Paul George 31 Pts and Montrezl Harrell, off the bench, with 20 Pts, but it was the Lakers defense that came up big when they needed the most.

Lakers Winning Factors

  • Consistency of Stars: Lebron James & Anthony Davis
  • Bench Production: Kyle Kuzma, Dwight Howard, Alex Caruso and The Lakers’ bench mob are consistently contributing to the game

Concern

  • LeBron’s Minutes.  LeBron led in minutes played vs Bucks with 37 Mins and Clippers with 35 mins, adding 34 Mins against the Sixers.  The Concern is LeBron already in playoff mode and just getting comfortable with playing that many minutes or could he hit a wall at some point in the playoffs and may burn himself out at the most inconvenient of times.

Week Grade – A+

Let’s talk some Lakers’ Nonsense

Which Win was the biggest for the Lakers??

NSS Blazers:3 win streak & Melo Player of the week!! Losing to the Clippers

  • Blazers 3 Game Winning Streak
  • Hassan Whiteside Breaks Block Record
  • Damian Lillard Is Back
  • Melo Wins Western Conference Player Of The Week

Blazers Had Momentum Facing the Clippers

Melo Had, Probably, one of the best Thanksgiving a NBA player could ask for!! Makes a comeback in the NBA and wins Western Conference Player of The Week helping his new team bounce back from a rocky start. And as much everybody should be enjoying all the celebrations, flashing lights and the good feeling, the Blazers still have a lot more to do. So enjoy what was the month of November because things about to get tougher and its just starting after the clippers.

The game before the facing the Blazers, the Clippers scored 150 points. The fact that they only scored 117 is a positive by itself, kind of, Blazers still loss by 20 points.  But what else was truly expected facing the Clippers.  When is not Kawhi Leonard going off is Paul George and as a team they still have one of the best bench mobs in the league, if not the best bench mob.  Montrezl Harrell scored 26 points and Patrick Patterson scored 19 points.  If anything for the Blazers, it was just a reality check of how far they still have to go.

This game when as expected and that’s okay.  This week for the Blazers is not an easy one and the faster its all over the better.  The Sacramento Kings are next and then it’s the Lakers on Friday night on ESPN, in which all eyes will be on the Melo Vs LBJ matchup.  The Blazers will benefit from being at home for the next 4 games and 3 of those t

Blazers sit at 8-13 and the next 4 home games are as follow:

Vs Kings (Series of 4 tied 1-1) – Bounce back game by Lillard 30+ Points

Vs Lakers (1st of 3 Games) – Melo Vs LBJ, will bring the crowd.  Hassan Whiteside will be the X-factor on how he handles AD and the Lakers’ center rotation.

Vs Thunder (Series of 4, Blazers lead 2-0) – if Blazers are able to beat both Kings and Thunder they’ll move ahead of them and closer to 500 and a playoff spot.

Vs Knicks (1st of 2 Games) – The Blazers hosting the Knicks not as exciting as it will be when they play the 2nd game on 1st of the day new year (January 1st, 2020) Carmelo Anthony will make his return to the Garden.  Does Melo deserve a tribute video??

               The Blazers have a lot to work to do in a limited and very little room for error.  The “Melo Hype” will burn out and he’ll settle into a glorify shooter for the team.  The goal for the Blazers is the tread water till Lillard is 100% and starts to pick up where left off before injury last year.
