Lakers Power Rankings After Season's First Month
Scott's 'Man Up' Philosophy Is Not the Answer for Lakers
Lakers Not Thrilled with Running at Training Camp
Robert Sacre wanted a double-double like Roy Hibbert, but just double-dribbled there. Lakers trail 109-106.
Sacre denies Burks at the rim! Timeout Utah with 31.7 to go, 6 on the shot clock. Jazz lead 113-112.
Anthony Bennett dunks on Robert Upshaw, but Robert Sacre is still the best Canadian player in this game.
Could see it go like this, fwiw:
Kobe, Young, Metta, Brown
Randle, Bass, Nance
Hibbert, Black, Upshaw, Sacre
Robert Sacre has guaranteed $ but Kupchak said before camp he'd be open to cutting $ for right basketball reasons http://t.co/YMdjiIsION
Against most teams, Scott can certainly play Bass at backup C. Allows him to play Kelly at the 4, with Sacre/Black on the bench.
Byron Scott played the starters all 12 1st Q minutes, and comes in with this 2nd unit: Huertas, Brown, Young, Kelly + Sacre.
Steph Curry was intimidated by Robert Sacre's presence and threw the ball out of bounds there. Ha.
Already seen enough to know Huertas should make the team. More than I can say for Sacre and Jabari Brown, fwiw.
Marcelo fires the bullet pass into the corner, which winds up as another #Swaggy3. Sacre follows with a two-handed jam. Offense is cooking.
Marcelo Huertas, Anthony Brown, Metta World Peace, Ryan Kelly and Robert Sacre start fourth quarter.
Robert Sacre's hook shot gives Lakers a commanding 76-75 lead.
Sacre swishes the hook shot to give the Lakers a 76-75 lead with 10:30 remaining in the fourth.
ROBERT SACRE WILL BLOCK YOU.
Sacre gets the bucket on one side and then comes back with the block that leads to a 24-second violation on the other.
Robert Sacre hit a jump hook on one end, then came over to help Kelly with a weak side block on the other. LAL up 76-75.
Nice stretch from LAL as Huertas notched his 7th and 8th assists, Kelly hitting a 3 to make it 83-79; good D from MWP, Sacre and Brown.
"M-V-P!" chants for Robert Sacre.
Yeah, Lakers should have kept Upshaw -- five years younger than Sacre and obviously, more potential.
It's interesting that the Lakers chose experience in both roster-spot battles: Metta over Jabari and Sacre over Upshaw.
2015-16 Lakers depth chart:
Playing Black or Sacre, if only for defense, might be a good idea right now. Lakers are getting shredded in the paint by the Kings offense.
I never thought I'd tweet this, but I'd rather have Robert Sacre in at center.
What did I miss with Sacre?
The choices are Robert Sacre who is tallest, Black who is undersized but athletic and not a rim protector, or Bass, who looks overmatched
Scott wasn't satisfied with the rim protection of Black or Sacre - so he decided to try a reserve offensive lineup to see if they could hang
Metta World Peace is on the active list tonight vs. Dallas, Robert Sacre inactive along with Nance Jr.
