Oh snap! Portland fans....Pre-Game:
Beat LA! BEAT LA! BEAT LA!
I look forward to the day that chant no longer gets any recs because that would mean the Lakers have become irrelevant anywhere except the Lottery.
If they're in the lottery 50 years, and move to Calgary, I’ll still chant it. I’ll still hate the Lakers.
Tonight's drinking game:
Whenever Dwight misses a free throw, you gotta drink!
Is this going to be as painful as I fear? I may need meds.
Don't worry guys, we got support from the other 28 teams. We got this.
Blazers strategy should just be "run!", Lakers are old and tired from last night
Blazers are younger and havent played in a few days
whiskey. it's necessary.
ATTENTION ALL THOSE AT ROSE GARDEN
if there are any “MVP” chants for Flobe, and you feel compelled to soak the chanters with a beverage, I will reimburse you the cost of said beverage and do your jail time. Steak dinner if the chanter is wearing a l@ker jersey
It's time to end this 8 game losing streak. I can think of no other team I’d like to end it to.
This is the last game of the season that I really, really want to win.
Draft slot be damned.
I'll just say it right now...THESE REFS SUCK! THE LEAGUE IS RIGGED! because in 3 hours I’m going to be too mad to type. Unless we win, then never mind.
Our only advantages are the Lakers played last night, and its the Rose Garden
it's a great day to be a blazer
Well....this game should be something.
We could win, or it could be a franchise record loss.
We can only complain about refs if it's a bad call, I vote!
Every call that goes against us is a bad call!
they really gonna call that garbage?
Please beat the living daylights out of the Lakers.
Too many Laker fans...disgusting
I got pissed.
Kobe getting his nationwide home cooking
Wow the Lakers look a little shocked.
this is the best basketball ive seen us play all season i think possibly offensively
How do you spell "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOt-WOOOOOOOOT!!!!"?
Just like what you did there.
Only more exclamation points.
We're up by ten, and it feels like the officials have already kept it this close. Yes, I’m complaining already.
we're just lucky they called that goal tend on D Howard that’s them trying to be fair to us
MVP chants for kobe?
I'm content with just hitting kobe in the face
i dont remember this many LA fans in past seasons at the RG
this year it has been ridiculous
and the Lakers aren't even good
a bit more red and black in the crowd would have been a welcomed sight
We got to stop letting southern Californians move to Oregon
I don't know, watching them all file sadly out of the Rose Garden never gets old.
5 vs 8 again.
So predictable david stern.
I have to resist making cracks about the refs on every possession
Everything is going our way, minus the refs of course.
WOW R U KIDDING ME!!!
This is great. Easily one of the best qtrs of the season.
yo Blazers step on their throats please.
<3 basketball fans from everywhere
Dame sits when Kobe sits.
Which is probably never. Kobe is going to play 48 mins tonight.
PURPLE AND GOLD MAKES ME SICK
All those cheers for the Lakers in the RG is making me livid
There's the chant!
Beat LA! Beat LA!
what were they chanting?
it was weird
like mvp and beat la over the top of each other
I say if Lakers are going to get a bunch of calls and kobe is this hot we should just get very physical with him, every guy should be putting elbows on him as he runs by.
I miss the part of the game when we were hot.
LILLARD vs KOBE!
AINT NO THING BUT A CHICKEN WING!!
This game is ruining my manufactured "Kobe's ballhoggery hurts his team" narrative.
He's the only thing keeping them in the game.
yeah, he's been pretty unreal for them. Also Dwight’s four open dunks are helpful.
there's something magical about playing the Lakers at home.
We are playing out of our minds right now!!
Blazers hanging tough,
Lakers postseason in balance ?
The boys have to be superheroes tonight for sure.
Millions on the line for NBA.
Remarkably, the FT differential is even.
Bryant has all the Lakers’ free throws. Blazers have ten as well.
just forfeit the rest of the games this is the last one that matters. give it your all and you can start summer early
Ok, time to strike bargains with whatever deities you worship.
Give the Blazers this win, and I will stop being “that guy” who tells everybody to watch Breaking Bad.
All right boys keep running these old guys for the second half and play some defense and we should get the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow
which is knocking these guys out of the playoffs
aka pot of gold
Flobe played 24 minutes
I hope it catches up with them
this is the norm for him apparently
i dont get how he’s stil doing this
la broadcast playing a KD highlight reel on their halftime show
...it’s cause they know he’ll end up there eventually
bet utah fans are happy at this moment hahaha
Forgot Dwight magically turns into Mark Price against us.
I'm about to break something.
Pathetic defense all season long.
HERE WE GO
Same old story I just hope they can answer back and bring some of that swag from the first half or it’s gonna be a long second half
I miss the first half Lakers
Kobe has just been taking Barton's lunch money
refs making sure it's a kobe night to remember
I don’t think I’ve ever seen more obvious rigging
they want the L*kers in the playoffs baaad
I hate how many Laker fans are at the game
any time a laker complains about a call a starving child dies
Blake rallying the troops. leadership personified.
It's nice to see that Kobe cares so much about winning in the Rose Garden.
He probably wants to beat the Blazers tonight more than he wants the Lakers to make the playoffs.
Damian is operating at a different level right now, apart from everyone but Kobe.
Kobe can’t miss =/
Kobe is willing himself into the playoffs
Babbitt is like "Lakers, you aint gonna make the playoffs!"
Good move there by Artest.
Don't say that too often, but yeah it was haha
Send Meta World Peace to North Korea
They'd embrace him.
Finally, someone just as crazy as us.
Has Kobe sat at all?
He doesn’t sit anymore
The look on kobe's face if we win tonight.
Oh, the patented "Kobe careens into the lane and throws up a shot" play.
It has worked all night—why stop now?
It's worked for 14 years
How is that not a foul?
It's really hard to type up a recap while yelling.
Gasol posting up on Babbitt is scary
are we shocked? No. You would think we would get some home cooking...but not when the Lakers need to make the playoffs
I didn’t even expect to be in the game. The Lakers really do have a bad team this year. REALLY BAD. Also, they are old and are on the 2nd night of a back to back..so there is that.
mvp chants for kobe?
shouldn't be letting Faker fans in the Rose garden!
Shut up Laker fans.
bryant with a new RG record for points by an opponent
yeah Kobe you are the man you schooled Pav—big friggin deal, he sucks and you suck
It's always cute how the Laker fans they show in the audience of Blazer games, always look SO douchey without fail
There is an entire section at the garden just for Faker fans?
Seriously this should NOT be happening!
WHy are the Blazers walking the ball up the court against an old team on the road on a back-to-back?
I'm scared now...
hate Blake so much today! Who's with me?
This looks like the end...
Well, Dwight might miss...
steve blake will rebound
It's not that the refs want the Lakers to win
We are helping them.
There is still some hope. some.
really? Steve blake is going to beat us? On offensive rebounds? This is a strange game.
four letter word repeated multiple times.
"the rebouning ability of blake saves the day again"
god i hate it, i hate it, i hate it
Somehow turned steve Blake into bill Walton
Can we overcome all the free points the refs gave Kobe in the 1st?
I can't remember a team I disliked more than this iteration of the Lakers
Worried there's going to be a riot there after the game.
wow mvp chant for kobe
pretty damn disgusting considering this is portland…
Really? MVP chants. Ugh.
Weird game with fun moments but ended sad
Now, MVP chants in the Rose Garden. Oh goodness.
will the Blazers win another game the rest of the season?
Hatred for the Lakers is at an all time high
that one time 5 years ago
u mad, bro?
These MVP chants are going to cause some fights after the game.
Keep slurping it up faker fans. You know you like it.
my friends are going to give me crap over this...
what i can't stand is our players congradulating Kobe and the Fakers after the game!
Way to make it look like Staples Center this night.
