Lakers In Drivers Seat After Game 1 Win?

33m | Apr 18, 2023

The emotions have been digested, Anthony Davis does not have a career-ending injury, and the Lakers are suddenly appear to be in the driver’s seat following a Game 1 road win in Memphis.

Ahead of Game 2, Ethan and JC are back to discuss the rise of Rui Hachimura, Austin Reaves indeed being HIM, and how these Lakers not needing LeBron’s name in the headline is the best thing possible for sustainable success. 

The fellas also discuss D’Angelo Russell’s role, his pairing with Dennis Schroder, and possible lineup tweaks we could see during this playoff run. One thing is for sure: If the Lakers are going to keep winning, they have to be the tougher team on the court.
