    Just sucks that we don't have two of our better players recently in Ingram and Hart.

    But if we've learned anything about this team this year, they might not always be the smartest team or team that executes the best but we complete and the effort is usually always there. When you can do that consistently, you never know how the game can go.

    The Lakers plan to sign forward Derrick Williams to a 10-day contract today, league sources tell Yahoo. Williams, the former No. 2 overall pick, played in China this season.

    We are going to playoffs

    I'd be a lot more confident if we had those two but if Luke is trying to somewhat mimic Kerr's system, it's a great time to learn how to win without them. One player falls, someone else steps up.

    I remember him being a heck of an athlete, but not doing much else.

    We haven’t won 30+ games in a season since the ‘12/‘13 season. We beat down LeBron’s team, with a player they gave us vs players we gave them, and we made their pick better for us. That’s progress.

    ...expect a Cavalier loss in Portland but a win against Chicago. Can't think of the other team they still have to play on their six game roadie.

    Great win. Loved how we responded after the game got tight.

    Team is really growing up and putting it together out there.

    51-37 we won the rebound battle. Shooting percentages were similar, as well as number of free throws. We won that game on the boards and second chance points.

    Also a huge shoutout to Lonzo and KCP for holding JC to 1-8 shooting and 0-3 from three.
