That's right, Steve. lost to a Pistons team that scorched them with a 60% FG spree. Tatum wasn't there due to Knee Soreness aka LM. Gee, first time to hear a C under LM. Kemba hasn't been his usual 30+ppg man after his own 1 week absence. Hope they get it all together tonight with the Bucks but they might be taken out early in the game by the powerhouse Bucks.
I am beginning to think that this chase for the best record is not the goal of some teams anymore, specially those practicing Load Management. The idea is to get into the playoffs and start to knock off teams there. The recent success of the wildcard Tennessee Titans in knocking off 2 of the best records (Patriots and the Ravens) in their conference is a boost to such thinking. And both were won on the road.
I was sorry to see the Lakers trade Brandon Ingram but as a Pet he is becoming a real star. He does need to bulk up however to bang with the big boys but last night he and the Pels defeated the Jazz in OT to end their lengthy win streak.
I believe when Zion is playing the Pels will be even better as the season wears on
