Hello Lakers Nation.
00:00:15
My name's Trevor Lane, senior writer for lakers nation dot com.
00:00:18
And today we're previewing the Los Angeles Lakers versus the Brooklyn Nets.
00:00:22
Game three of the preseason for your Lakers.
00:00:25
We're going to see what we need to watch for in this game.
00:00:29
I've got three things we're gonna keep an eye on.
00:00:31
But first, quick Shana to our sponsor, appropriately enough up time energy drinks.
00:00:36
Because the Lakers are playing the Nets again at 4 30 in the morning Pacific time.
00:00:42
I'm going to need my up time energy drink.
00:00:43
Make sure you get some to go Pick some up.
00:00:46
7 11 g n.
00:00:47
C or amazon dot com.
00:00:49
Get Europe time, energy drink, Get up early and speaking which I'm gonna be up early watching that game.
00:00:54
I'm gonna do a second screen experience, at least for the first half.
00:00:57
We'll be right there with you will be doing it through.
00:00:59
Sportscaster will check my Twitter feed at Trevor Underscore Lane.
00:01:03
I will be tweeting out the link.
00:01:04
Come chat with me.
00:01:05
We'll watch the game together.
00:01:06
It'll be a ton of fun to make sure you guys do that as well.
00:01:09
All right, So three things.
00:01:11
Three keys to the game that I want to see from the rotations.
00:01:15
We knew that Frank Vogel, the new head coach of the Lakers, was going to mix up his rotations as the preseason went along.
00:01:22
That's no surprise that something a lot of head coaches do, and as someone coming in new, it makes a lot of sense for him to mix and match.
00:01:28
Tinker with things.
00:01:29
It's preseason.
00:01:30
The games don't count.
00:01:31
This is the time for experimentation.
00:01:33
So the first game we saw Avery Bradley started, I'm talking about that game against the Warriors.
00:01:38
We saw Avery Bradley, Danny Green and JaVale.
00:01:40
McGee joined LeBron James and Anthony Davis in the starting lineup in the first game against the Brooklyn Nets, which the Lakers came up short.
00:01:46
And they start Davies, couple of Pope and Dwight Howard instead.
00:01:51
I wasn't thrilled with that lineup.
00:01:52
I thought they did.
00:01:53
Okay, Rhonda was shooting threes to a decent degree, but I'm curious to see what he does now.
00:01:58
Do we see another shift in the lineup and could that mean Captain America? Alex Caruso gets his shot starting Avery Bradley got his shots starting at the well point guard position.
00:02:08
LeBron James is technically the point guard, but got his shot there.
00:02:12
The first game.
00:02:13
Rondo got it last game.
00:02:14
Is it now Alex Caruso's turn? Do we get to see Captain America unleashed alongside the starting lineup? That's something to keep an eye on.
00:02:21
And does Danny Green get put back out there so that the Lakers can defend a little bit better? And I'll talk a little bit more about him in a minute? Also, Quinn Cook, a guy who was reportedly healthy last game.
00:02:31
He had a calf injury in Game one, Did not play Game two.
00:02:35
I think the Lakers probably just playing it safe there.
00:02:36
Which again? Preseason.
00:02:38
That's the way to go.
00:02:39
But do we finally get to see Quinn coached up on the floor and see what he can do with his shooting ability out? There could be a real nice fit for your Los Angeles Lakers, so really curious to see how these rotations breakdown and what starting lineup Vogel decides to go with this time around.
00:02:55
Doing perhaps see Javale McGee back in the starting center spot.
00:02:58
Who I think right now he looks like the starting center compared to Dwight Howard.
00:03:02
I liked some of the things Dwight's done, but it seems like McGee is running running away than with the position so curious to see if McGee slides back into the starting lineup or who knows, maybe Frank Vogel start small with a D.
00:03:12
It center will have to wait and see.
00:03:14
Second thing I'm looking for is the defense.
00:03:16
Now.
00:03:17
This Lakers team is built around defense.
00:03:19
Frank Vogel is a defensive head coach.
00:03:21
It's going to be key for them this season that they can get stops.
00:03:24
And so one of the things that I'm gonna be watching that they struggled with in the last game is there three point defense they allowed the Brooklyn Nets to take.
00:03:32
I believe it was 40 or 41 threes and they buried 49% of them.
00:03:37
That's way too many way too high of his success rate.
00:03:40
The Brooklyn that's were lighting up the Lakers from deep, and a lot of that was because either the Lakers guards were outmatched.
00:03:46
In terms of size, the Lakers don't have a lot of wings right now.
00:03:49
It's special.
00:03:50
With Kyle Kuzma and Jared Dudley out So guys like John and Moosa.
00:03:53
We're just shooting over the top of a lot of Lakers to find guys like Avery Bradley, whose a solid defender don't get me wrong.
00:03:59
But it's 62 He is a 67 wingspan.
00:04:01
That's still gonna be a tough matchup when he's trying to contest on a guy who's six foot 86 foot nine.
00:04:07
Difficult for him.
00:04:08
So we saw that a few times we saw the bigger wings shooting over the top of Lakers defenders.
00:04:12
The other thing that I'm curious to see is do the centers have to hedge up a little bit more in order to get out on shooters? Because they were diving into the paint and the Nets were taking advantage of it? So nothing keep an eye on Joe Harris is, well, also a great shooter.
00:04:25
So something to see.
00:04:27
No Kyrie Irving will be out this game.
00:04:29
We've heard he aggravated that facial fracture, so he'll be out, Which means a Spencer did what he is a hell of a player himself.
00:04:35
So we're gonna be seeing him in there.
00:04:37
Does Avery Bradley wind up getting the assignment of checking him? Is there someone else's Alex Caruso wind up getting that shot.
00:04:44
Something to see, third and final thing that I want to look for in this game.
00:04:48
Danny Green.
00:04:49
The Lakers signed him over the offseason $15 million per year, while 30 year deal for two years.
00:04:55
He was an amazing shooter last season with the Toronto Raptors, one of the very best in the league, shot 46% from three solid defender.
00:05:02
It's because of that efficiency that he ended up, UH, he ends up first or second most seasons in terms of real plus minus.
00:05:09
So we know Danny Green could be an impactful player.
00:05:12
Did not have a great outing last time against the Brooklyn Nets.
00:05:14
20 minutes played two for eight shooting.
00:05:17
Oh, of three from three again.
00:05:19
This is a guy who shot 46% last season and had three turnovers, and some of them were ugly.
00:05:24
Not the type of thing that you're used to seeing from a veteran like Danny Green.
00:05:27
So I'm looking for a bounce back performance from him and looking for that outside shot to start falling again for his defense.
00:05:33
Even pick up a little bit more and I want to see mistake free basketball.
00:05:37
I want to see no turnovers.
00:05:38
I want to see him making the right decisions out there on the floor, one game blip on the radar.
00:05:42
I'm not worried yet.
00:05:43
This is a guy who's been in the league for a long, long time.
00:05:46
I don't think that one preseason game suggests anything about his his long term potential with this Lakers team, but still wasn't great to see him have a poor performance last game and I'd like to see a bounce back again, right game here against the Brooklyn Nets early, early, early Saturday morning.
