After a furious 2nd half comeback that allowed the Lakers to save face with a win vs. a bad Bulls team Tuesday, the Lakers are right back in action tonight in Sacramento against the Kings. Like the Bulls, the Kings have a poor record, winning only 4 games to their 13 losses. This is surely […]
There’s a handful of games a year where even though the team wins, you sort of just have to shrug and say “well that was fun, even though I was mostly mad the entire time”. This was one of those games. The Lakers beat the Bulls 103-94 and if that’s all you knew, you’d give […]
In the latest Laker Film Room Podcast, Pete and I take stock of the team after the first month of the season. We start out talking about Lonzo Ball, the narrative around him, and how he’s played to this point in the year on both sides of the ball.
The Lakers had one of their best games — and wins — of the season on Sunday night, beating the Nuggets handily with strong team play on both sides of the ball. The Lakers not only passed and assisted well, but helped water down a potent Nuggets offense with attentive defense (that was aided by […]
If you’ve visited this site before last night and are here now, reading this post, you’ll notice it’s different. Very different, in fact. Yes, FB&G has been redesigned, updating its look from head to toe. New logos, new layout…just new. Over the past couple of months we’ve been working very hard on how we wanted […]
After a disappointing loss to the Suns on Friday, the Lakers found the right combination of energy, teamwork, and shot making to beat the Nuggets 127-109. Led by Lonzo Ball’s triple-double and Julius Randle’s big scoring night, the Lakers were able to keep the Nuggets at arm’s length and get one of their best wins […]
If the Lakers learned anything in their Friday night (122-113) loss to the Suns it’s that playing hard and smart is not an option. This, in theory, is a lesson already known, but when you’re facing a team for the third time and have already beaten them twice, when that same team is playing on […]
I own property on Julius Randle Island. I was actually an original investor, snatching up beach front property with all the best views before many others thought to even visit the remote location. Check the archives if you don’t believe me.
Whenever I know good people doing good work, I try to support them. What’s the point of having my own website if I can’t do at least that much? With that, I want to hip you all to something I think is cool and hope that you will too…
Some games, there really isn’t a lot to say. The Lakers 4th and final game on their road trip, in Phoenix, is one such game. Yes, they won 100-93. And, honestly, saying more than that really isn’t needed. Or, at least, I don’t want to say more. Not when the game was disjointed and sloppy, […]
