    Incredible defense by JaVale today...I think a certain Lonzo is going to have nightmares about him for a while!

    He was pretty brilliant out there tonight with those 6 blocks!

    .

    He got BI 3 times and 2 were just perfect timing at the rim.

    Great rim protection with AD out. He came back in late and helped out too cause Dwight was getting really frustrated with the whistles.

    6 swats in only 24 minutes is impressive.

    Good energy out there with the 11 boards. He stepped up with AD's early foul trouble. Felt like the stretch he came back in the 2nd quarter, the final 4-5 minutes, got some really good production out of him.

    Highlights: He laughed off the flagrant elbow to the head and his sealing for Bron's drive. Thanks Boston.

    Can we get a Javale vs Dwight discussion going? When do you use Javale more than Dwight and vice-versa? To me:
    1. Dwight fouls stupidly at times whereas Javale is more composed.
    2. Javale is better at running the floor.
    3. Javale is better at blocking shots but Dwight is a better team defender/paint protector.
    4. Dwight is stronger than Javale but Javale's length is a factor as well.

    Yet JaVale gets little respect from a few to the point of suggesting he not be in the playoff rotation.

    Dwight’s IQ for that position is miles ahead from Javale, he’s had an all star career except for injuries. I think the key for Javale is to take him off the floor right before he starts getting tired or else he will make bone headed plays in succession. Therefore, Dwight gets the nod for closing out playoff games, and whenever we play a team with a good center. I’d use Javale to start quarters and against teams that have a weak center. He works well with AD twin towering most teams.

    I think that Javale will come in handy for the playoffs. We need him when Dwight is A) off or B) raging and suffering from foulitis. His length, blocks and some of his post moves are good (just not always reliable). Like him as a teammate and other than being a little light when it comes too the physical stuff. His blocks are awesome. A good player for this team and a good center rotation with Dwight and sometimes AD.

    Read that McGee did not contract the virus... Good for him, now he has to steer clear of those who do for his own well being.

    Any word on McGee's plans with the restart..?
    His Asthma condition might be a serious consideration in whether to play or not.
    Anyone hear anything.?

    Haven't heard anything yet, but we haven't even heard the names of the two Lakers who contracted Covid, so I just pray one of them wasn't McGee.

    Kuz, MCG and Eagle are just too good for those scrubs AD & Bron.
