The shorthanded Los Angeles Lakers fell against the LA Clippers on Thursday night as they continue to barely hold on to their spot in the standings, and we are ready to react to all of it.

On the latest episode of the Silver Screen and Roll postgame show, hosts Anthony Irwin and Harrison Faigen broke down the blowout loss, and what their biggest takeaways are from such a resounding defeat. While the Lakers may not have been at full strength for this one, there still may be some things to think about following this matchup, maybe most of all that it might be seriously time to worry if this team has enough time to get healthy.

Are there just too many issues stacking on top of each other at this point? If you need a bigger-picture vent session — and Anthony, of all people, being the optimistic one — this is the part of the podcast for you.

Then, with the Lakers as close to a play-in game as they’ve been all season, Harrison and Anthony discussed which possible play-in opponent they’d see as the biggest threat to the purple and gold if they do end up in the potential elimination games. Because if they lose against the Trail Blazers in Portland on Friday, that’s where they’re headed.

Finally, Harrison and Anthony wrapped up the show with a headwear-related attempt to try and break the curse that’s been following the Lakers all year.

You can listen to all that and more on the full episode in the player embedded below, and to make sure you don’t miss a single show moving forward, subscribe to the Silver Screen and Roll podcast feed on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher or Google Podcasts.
