Damian Lillard was a plus 19 in the game and had the most presence on the court. The Lakers decided to send full double teams, but only when Dame would heat up. Caruso and KCP would pick him up 94 feet which was perhaps the only unique thing the Lakers did defensively. The main decisions when coming up with a defensive gameplan with Dame would be how to guard the pick and roll, how to run Dame off the 3 point line and into the rim protecting bigs, and who to put on him. The Blazers love to run high pick and rolls, which makes sense considering Dame’s range. That will stretch the defense and draw the big man out of the paint all the way beyond the 3 point line. The Lakers decided to have the on-ball handler go over the screen and have the big man step up but in a slight drop coverage. This is a pretty common defense against Dame and teams got torched. Dame’s comfortable with shooting off the pick with the defender behind him. The Lakers don’t have elite perimeter defenders, only solid ones which isn’t enough so there needs to be a better team concept. Is it absolutely ridiculous to defend someone 35 feet out yeah, but it’s Damian Lillard. And with the Lakers size, Dame can take advantage of slower bigs versus quick guard, AD was the only one that was quick enough to bother Dame. Especially in the 4th quarter where the Trail Blazers have played multiple games in the clutch and have gone to multiple options when Dame got doubled. Dame has that gravity and he forced a Lakers defense into chaos that they were not ready for. The rest of the game, Dame actually got free off-ball, hit some tough shots, and although Caruso did a solid job, Dame got his. This game in particular for Lillard was good, not great, he shot 9 of 21 from the field, we’ve seen him do better and that has to be a scary thought for the Lakers. The entire Blazers team didn’t have a great offensive game.
Now Playoff LeBron was sorta in effect even if Bron saying playoff LeBron is different this year cause of no fans which got people riled up. This was easily LeBron’s best game since the NBA restart, but that’s not saying a lot since LeBron hasn’t played at Bron like standard shooting 45% from the field with only 6.9 assists per game in those 8 games. So this game was an improvement, Bron was blowing by defenders, he was quick and agile. Also keep in mind that the Trail Blazers literally have no one to match up with LeBron so their strategy was to throw everyone at him and I mean everyone. Dame at one point picked up LeBron full court. Whaaaa. Carmelo would take turns guarding Bron. And to close out the game, Gary Trent Jr was tasked with guarding LeBron. What do all these players have in common? None of them should be able to slow down LeBron.
There were other times where it seemed like he was already in this predetermined pass mood. There’s no reason for LeBron to not play bully ball against Gary Trent Jr who is 2 inches shorter and about 40 pounds lighter. But instead he chose to just move the ball along with pressuring the defense or have the double full come at him. The Lakers were getting some good looks, but not converting and so LeBron needed to take over the game aggressively through his scoring, but he kept it throughout. In this game, he shot 9 of 20 without any elite forward defender and that can’t happen. LeBron can’t be passive if Carmelo is on him.
Let’s talk about the elephant in the room, Anthony Davis. Anthony Davis was a -20 in this game. Yes he had 28 points but he shot 8-24 from the field and 12 of 17 from the free throw line. Davis didn’t put enough pressure on the Blazers defense. AD didn’t really post up, he didn’t assert his dominance on the boards since he missed a lot of easy putbacks. Actually, he let the Blazers off the hook with shots like these. He also did miss other mid range shots that he probably should have made. The Blazers defense wasn’t out of sorts when guarding AD, there wasn’t much chaos.
Now there’s small other things like Dion Waiters not knowing what to do defensively and having to get subbed out, but it really does come down to the Lakers superstars stepping up. Dame just played like normal Dame, the Lakers need to change up their defensive scheme. The Blazers will need to think of a more sustainable defensive scheme against LeBron. Man this is an exciting ass series. Yeah I’m a Lakers fan, but I got immense respect for Dame so let’s watch this unfold. But what do you think? Who’s winning the series?

  • The Portland trailblazers muscled their way in the playoffs. Dame is a beast we all know that and anything is possible, melo playing his best defense he really has in this series, CJ balling with a fractured back (totally not bs) these guys have a good chance and not to mention whiteside a monster when he wants to I think the blazers are taking there game to an another whole level! Lakers in 5

  • SEE HOW AT 6:52 NUMBER 88 SHOULD HAVE PASSED TO NUMBER 4 TO FORCE DAME TO COMMIT THEN 4 KICKS TO THE OPEN SHOOTER IN THE CORNER. LEBRONS TEAMMATES NEED TO MAKE THAT READ THEMSELVES AND ITS A WIDE OPEN THREE.

  • AT 6:49 YOU SAY BRON SHOULD HAVE PLAYED BULLY BALL BUT BRO HES 14 FEET FROM THE BASKET WITH TWO BIGS WAITING TO TRAP ON THE BASELINE AND ONE EVENTUALLY DOES AS SOON AS IT LOOKS LIKE BRON IS EVEN THINKING ABOUT BACKING DOWN GTJ. THATS THE REASON HE DIDNT PLAY BULLY BALL. IT DOESNT MATTER THAT BRON IS BIGGER HE HAD NO WHERE TO GO. YOU REALLY GOTTA LEARN THE GAME BRO. KOBE MIGHT HAVE TAKEN A 14 FOOT FADER RIGHT THERE WITH HELP COMING BUT IS THAT LEBRON JAMES' STRONG SUIT BRO? NO. SO IF HE CANT GET CLOSER FOR AN EASIER SHOT AND THE DEFENSE IS LOADING BIGS ON THE BASELINE PREVENTING A DRIVE LEBRON WILL NEVER TAKE THAT SHOT BECAUSE HIS GAME ISNT LIKE KOBE. HE ISNT GOING TO TAKE TOUGH SHOTS HE ISN'T COMFORTABLE WITH. LEBRON IS ALWAYS GOING TO PASS TO TRY TO GET THE EASIER SHOT. THATS THE REASON WHY HE PASSED AND DIDNT BACK DOWN INTO AN OBVIOUS TRAP EVEN THOUGH HE IS SMUCH BIGGER THAN GARY. NO OFFENSE BRO BUT SOMETIMES YOU SAY REALLY DUMB THINGS AND I REALLY DONT KNOW IF YOU ARE TROLLING OR JUST DONT UNDERSTAND BUT YEA MAN. SLOW DOWN AND WHEN YOU DONT UNDERSTAND SOMETHING DONT JUST MAKE UP WEIRD CRITICISMS THAT FIT NARRATIVES BUT ARENT APPICABLE TO THE ACTUAL PLAY. LEBRON WAS DAMN NEAR ABOUT TO BE TRIPLE TEAMED AND HE SAW IT AND MADE THE SMART PLAY. THE ONLY SHOT IN THAT SITUATION IS A CONTESTED FADEAWAY WHICH MY GOAT KOBE WOULD TAKE BUT YOU REALLY GOTTA UNDERSTAND PERSONNEL AND SITUATIONALS BEFORE YOU JUST EXPECT LEBRON TO GO TOTALLY AGAINST HIS OWN INSTINCTS AND PLAY STYLE. YOU SEE A 24 ON THAT JERSEY?

    Eff 3Eff 3Month ago
  • CLEARLY THAT WASN'T MELO THAT BRON BLEW BY AT 6:43 MARK. STOP THE MELO HATE ALREADY. MELO WAS GUARDING HIS MAN IN THE CORNER WHICH WE ALL KNOW LEBRON WOULD PASS TO IF HE COMMITS TO HELPING TOO MUCH. YOU TOTALLY MISREAD THAT PLAY. LEBRON BLOWS BY NUMBER 2 AND IF MELO HELPS TOO MUCH BRON KICKS TO THE CORNER FOR THE OPEN 3 WHICH IS THE EASIEST 3 ON THE COURT. THEREFORE MELO IS SUPPOSE TO SHOW HELP AND IF BRON GET TO THE RIM THE BIG IS SUPPOSED TO ROTATE. NOT MELO. THE SHIT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH MELO. MELO DID EVERYTHING RIGHT ON THIS PLAY AND IF HE DOES MORE HE LEAVES A GOOD SHOOTER OPEN FOR AN EASY SHOT. YOU GOTTA WATCH MORE BASKETBALL AND LEARN WHAT YOU ARE ACTUALLY LOOKING AT BECAUSE IT SEEMS LIKE YOU HAVE AN AGENDA AGAINST MELO OR YOU JUST DONT UNDERSTAND CERTAIN ASPECTS OF THE GAME.

    • He did nothing in game 2, 6 turnovers, 10 points, 1 assist, He is not consistent and that is why a lot of people don’t consider him the GOAT, people like mj and Kobe almost never had games like those, LeBron is getting worse, and plus he still only has 3 rings, by now mj had 5 in his time and was getting his sixth same with Kobe.

  • Hi MJ. I was wondering, do you have the ability to think?? Put yourself in LeBron's shoes, he needs to stay passive this entire postseason, or the Lakers won't even make the finals. LeBron is not at all concerned about the weak trailblazers. Portland is not, nor ever will be a title contender. They are a nice team, who peaked last season by being swept by an injured golden state team. LeBron is smart enough to know, that if he wants another title, he needs his "team" shooting and feeling comfortable. And Anthony Davis being the most dominant force on the team. If LeBron plays aggressive, it will backfire, and they won't advance to finals. He will have his hands full with the clippers, with about 8 different guys that can guard him, so this Portland series is just a joke to him, this is warm up time for him to get his shooter feeling good and hitting shots.s
