    I didn't realize Kobe had done so badly (if 20 PPG is bad) against the Pistons. Rip will be all in pride of PA mode.

    Even though they are short handed, Phil has been able to get the best out of his bench and you never know when Farmar, Sasha, or Turiaf will really get off because they have been thrown into these situations before and can keep the Lakers competitive until Kobe decides its time to take over. Odom is injured too, but will probably play. He is good in the paint, but tends to get passive like Tay and defers to Kobe when he is in.

    This is a game that we can get outhustled in if Flip leaves the starters in to long especially in the third, so we need to match youth vs youth in some instances, and not let the game get away from us like we did here in LA in November.

    Unfortunately for us here in SoCal I believe they will blaclkout NBA league pass and we will get the game on the local LA TV feed on an hour delay:noidea::angrysoapbox:

    Wow Dre, that would suck if they delay it.

    I'm looking forward to this game. Lakers are still good competition. Also, I like to watch the closeups of PJ to see if he has been visiting MaryJane before the games like I suspected him of doing in the 03/04 Finals. ;)

    Question is: is it game "worthy" for Sheed?

    I think so. This is the kind of game he likes. All the starters should come out of the gate strong after getting called out in the media and by the coach for their 1st quarter play in the last game.

    Question is can the bench sustain the lead in the 2nd and later part of the 3rd quarter.

    Keep your eyes on Javaris Crittenton. Most likely the Lakers will match him up against Stuckey.

    The Lakers picked him behind our Stuckey pick.

    So we can get an idea of what Joe passed on.

    Crittenton is only 20.

    :hoops:

    Can't get the game yet, but the boxscore shows that the Pistons did not get to the FT line in the first qtr, but Kobe lived there and was 7-7??? WTF !! Who's reffing this one Steve Javie??

    We're getting ripped off. 22 free throws to 2? The calls were very bad. It wasn't Laker agressiveness, it was our defensive agressiveness. Jack Niess made it personal.

    Very proud of Flip for having the guts to put in the Zoo Crew when all hope looked lost against the Lakers and the refs.

    Absolutely. Shocked the hell outta me, but that was a good call. Good job, Flip.

    Nice game by AJ.

    9 rebounds in 13 minutes and a nice job shot in the lane. I think he might be on his way. He needs to get his fouls down so he can get more minutes.

    Good job by Flip. It's no coincidence that when he goes with what is working, including the bench, good things happen. I am surprised Tay's number was not called on the last play, but he got the ball back and capitalized anyways.
