I went into the post game press conference a bit annoyed by all of the LaVar Ball talk, so I asked Luke Walton about a substitution pattern that led to a huge, decisive second quarter run, with a unit led by Lonzo Ball. I hoped he’d provide some insight as to how that group performed so well together, leading them to a 132-113 victory. His response?
“His dad was talking s–t, so I took him out early…just kidding.”
In this installment of Laker Film Room, I take a look at the decision-making and off-ball play that led to Brandon Ingram’s big night, as well as the second unit of Lonzo Ball, Jordan Clarkson, Josh Hart, Kyle Kuzma, and Larry Nance, Jr.
The goal of Laker Film Room is to provide Lakers fans with consistent, thoughtful content that helps you enjoy the game on a deeper level. I’m able to do that because I don’t work for a publication that demands that I cover the most sensational material, which typically gets the most views and clicks. As a result, I rely on the support of Lakers fans to help me produce my work. If you believe in what I do, please considering support my work on either Venmo or Patreon.
