AM: What do you see as the key matchup for Tuesday’s game?

CW: How the Lakers matchup with both Giannis Antetokonmpo and Khris Middleton is going to be interesting. For one, Kobe at the small forward seems incredibly problematic in this matchup as either Giannis or Middleton have the length to affect his offense in a major way and the physical tools to leave Bryant overmatched.

The same goes for elsewhere on the wing with any of the other players the Lakers put out on the wing. How Scott schemes the defense to try and limit what those guys are able to do off of the wings is going to be key for Los Angeles even trying to stay in this game.
