Mixed Reactions Among LA Lakers Fans Despite Win Over Hornets - catcherbbs - 02-06-2024

The LA Lakers secured a 124-118 victory against the Charlotte Hornets on Monday night, concluding a successful 4-2 record on their six-game road trip. While the win extended their winning streak to three games, some Lakers fans voiced their dissatisfaction on social media despite the positive outcome.

The Lakers nearly squandered a 21-point lead, allowing Miles Bridges to explode for 41 points, causing frustration among the fan base. Anthony Davis, with an impressive triple-double of 26 points, 15 rebounds, and 11 assists, led the Lakers. D'Angelo Russell contributed a team-high 28 points, and LeBron James added 26 points, four rebounds, and seven assists.

However, some fans took to social media to express their discontent:

One fan criticized the defense, stating, "Great win but I'm concerned abt the defense. We can't let bums like Miles Bridges drop 40."

Another fan expressed disappointment over the narrow victory against the Hornets, saying, "Congrats on barely defeating the Shanghai Sharks."

A more critical comment focused on Miles Bridges' performance, raising concerns about his controversial past: "We really let Miles Bridges abuse us with 41 points like he abused his wife?"

Despite the mixed reactions, the Lakers are now two games above .500 and head into a crucial matchup against the Denver Nuggets at Crypto.com Arena on Thursday. The trade deadline looms large, with the Lakers linked to potential deals involving stars like Dejounte Murray and Zach LaVine. According to ESPN's Brian Windhorst, LeBron James, although subject to trade rumors, is likely to stay in Hollywood, urging the Lakers front office to be aggressive in shaping the team.

As the Lakers continue their quest for a playoff spot in the competitive Western Conference, the fanbase remains divided on the team's recent performance and potential trade moves in the coming days.
