Kyle Lowry on this team’s charges:
“We don’t have shot blockers so we have to find ways to protect the paint…A charge is deflating to the opposing team.”

“It’s not a double charge. I got the charge,” as he laughs

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
What is this game? Haslem probably should have been called for an illegal screen, Lowry almost double-dribbles and Herro hits a fall-away 3 as the shot clock expires. Kalamian is not happy.

More on this storyline

Ramona Shelburne: The Warriors will be without three of their top four coaches for today’s game in Phoenix, sources tell @Adrian Wojnarowski and I. Mike Brown and Chris DeMarco are in health and safety protocols. Kenny Atkinson (leg injury) isn’t traveling yet. -via Twitter @ramonashelburne / December 25, 2021

Jorge Sierra: ?? We’ve reached three digits ?? -via Twitter @hoopshype / December 24, 2021

LeBron was asked about the Lakers’ defensive struggles vs. San Antonio — who scored the most points vs. Los Angeles in a regulation game since January of 2020. He credited Spurs’ execution then noted the fact that the Lakers’ best defensive players are in health and safety protocols. “All of our defensive guys are in protocols,” he said, naming Kent Bazemore, Austin Reaves, Trevor Ariza, and Avery Bradley (he unintentionally omitted Anthony Davis, who is sidelined with an MCL sprain). “We don’t need a full roster. We just need some of our guys back.” -via Clutch Points / December 24, 2021
