LeBron on Caruso: "AC is whatever we need. He’s a Swiss Army knife, to be honest … he can do it all, he just helps our ballclub in so many ways.”
Vogel has talked about the
"good problem” of having a deep/talented bench. But, imagine Caruso's minutes will >>> when it matters.
This game reminds me of Game 1 last postseason vs. POR and HOU, minus the high stakes. Lakers have just been feeling their way against a relatively unique Sixers team that’s huge on the interior. They've adjusted a few times within game, but it’s been an uneven game.
LAL have twice allowed PHI to open double-digit leads, and twice battled back to get within a few points, but they haven’t had the lead since early in the 1st Q.
Sixers up 81-74 heading to the 4th Q. LAL just 3 of 16 from 3 and have attempted 9 fewer FT’s than PHI.
LAL rallied from an early 16-point deficit to head into halftime trailing by only 4 at 55-51, despite hitting just 1 of 11 3’s.
LAL were red hot from 3 all season until the last 3 games. At CHI, they hit only 4. LeBron hit 7 of their 10 at CLE, and Gasol has the 1 make tonight.
It’s been an impressively steady, measured response from the Lakers since Philly’s hot start.
Sixers went 12 for 19 in the 1st Q (63.2%) and were +3 at the FT line. In the 2nd Q, LAL have held them to 5 for 13 FG’s and have a 21-13 edge with 3:25 in the half.
LAL trail by 2.
