the other game i'm going back and forth on besides indiana/michigan. warriors, jazz and rockets all lost last night. big game for the lakers.
Metta 0-5 from three so far. He's got the crowd groaning with every touch.
yeah he sure has those games from time to time. it is looking hopeful though for the lakers, up at half.
lakers backcourt have been killing the bulls. they can use derrick rose about now.
if the lakers keep playing like this they can be scary.
They will make the playoffs, as I predicted. Too much talent not to. But I also said they woud take an early exit. And as for this "If they keep playing like this, they can be scary" I've seen what happens when they go up against real contenders and it isn't pretty. Beating the bulls to me is the equivalent of beating the Denver Nuggets in the western conference. They are both very good teams and nobody should sleep on them, but they both lack a true super star right now (Rose). Lakers have taken a step forward, but the only one people should be impressed with is Kobe Bryant playing the level he's at.
Shaq said it perfectly, if the Lakers have any aspirations to make any noise at all in the playoffs they need to snag the 6th seed, I believe they can beat the Clippers, maybe the Grizzlies, but not the Nuggets. And they're going to need to play like this all the time if they even want to be able to steal 2 games from San Antonio or OKC. But they definitely are playing much better and are a legit threat because they have so much talent.
and the lakers have passed the jazz.
