If the Lakers want to really get on the right track, they must do two things: one is to inspire Westbrook, so that he can really find the status and feeling; the other is to establish the team’s regular rotation lineup as soon as possible with many new aids. Before the Lakers challenged the Spurs away, James announced that he was missing due to a right ankle injury. Lakers coach Vogel said: “We are taking a marathon strategy.”

  This is James’ 19th season. In the past three seasons, his groin and right ankle have been injured. He is as strong as Superman and hard to resist the erosion of time. The reason why the Lakers made a big deal to bring in Westbrook is also right. It’s for these nights of the regular season: When James is away, the Lakers need another engine.

James can’t play, which is actually a good thing for Westbrook. He can return to his familiar role without worrying about how to adapt to his teammates.

In the first two games of the game, Westbrook’s performance was horrible. He only scored 23 points, 16 rebounds and 13 assists, shot 36% from the field, 38% from the free throw, and made 7 of 0 three-pointers. In the victory over the Grizzlies, in addition to scoring 9 points at the end of the second quarter, he was not satisfactory in the second half, making 6 turnovers on 1 of 6 shots.

  Vogel took the responsibility to his own head. He said: “We need someone to run with Westbrook, and we don’t always do it. At the same time, there is also the angle of cover for his pick-and-rolls. We help him The screen angle can be better. We are making progress in those areas, but there is still room for improvement.”

  For Westbrook, the Lakers need to speed up and allow Davis to be more of a center and play a large and four small lineups. This is also an important experiment the Lakers did against the Spurs today. But is this speed-up really a correct instruction for Westbrook?

In the starting lineup, Jordan is still a pseudo-starter, and his playing time is about 10-15 minutes in each game. Today, he has over-fulfilled the task with 7 points, 9 rebounds and 2 blocks on 3 of 4 shots in 15 minutes. The Lakers have been suppressing the Spurs in the first quarter by relying on their huge advantage inside.

  Perhaps the most unexpected surprise for the Lakers this season is Rivers. Not only can you get some air cut opportunities by James’ side, he is also very accurate on the outside today, shooting 2 of 4 three-pointers, and a mid-range shot. He is the only body shape of the Lakers besides Baezmore to qualify. The flank (1 meter 96, weight 89 kg) is now, for defensive considerations, the Lakers also used him in the second team today, giving him a full 30 minutes. He also repaid Vogel’s trust with his outstanding performance.
