In one of their most complete games of the year, the Lakers romped the Rockets in a what Frank Vogel called an “identity win”. In this episode of the Laker Film Room Podcast, Pete, Mike, and I offer our takeaways from the team’s performance, focusing on Anthony Davis backing up his calls for more defensive effort with a great game and how KCP’s return gave the team a big boost.
Then, later in the pod, we get into THT’s strong performance on both sides of the ball and show Trez some love for his recent play, including how impactful he’s been on the offensive glass.
This was a fun game to discuss, not just because the Lakers played so well, but also because it was a call-back to what the Lakers can look like when they inch closer to being a better version of themselves. You can listen to the full pod below:
