When the series began Wolves were scared. Thay were realy scared. And thay worst fears became reality in game 1. Knowing thay have to win game 2 to stay alive, thay must have bean terified. Thay were there for the takeing. But we just didnt show up. We were just not willing to play hard.
With playoffs staring and all of the excitement we realy came to play in game 1 and that was evident cose we blew Wolves away early. After we took 20 point lead we got to confetable and alowed tham to come back but whan thay did, we just blew tham away again.
The truth is, we just didnt show up for game 2. We gave tham a great start that got tham going and gave tham a lot of confidence. We did managed to come back, but after we came to within one, Flip caled a good time out and it compleatly changed the game. Why ? Cose we again got overconfident like we did for the start on game 1 and that was evident cose we blew Wolves away early. After we took 20 point lead we got to confetable and alowed tham to come back but whan thay did, we just blew tham away again.
So, insted of going home with 2-0 lead and Wolves killed off, we are going home at 1-1, desperate to win both games in the Staples. I dont even wanna think what happends if we dont win both of those games. Insted of weiting for tired Spurs to come out of thear series, we are now in a war.
This team obviously neads psiciatrist cose we obviously have a huge mental problem. You can just play like a champion one night and like deep lotery team the other. I think thats the reason why Phil must use his timeouts wisely. But if there is a coach willing to live his team play out threw its opponents 10 point run - its Phil. And that is not helping the Lakers right now. He just didnt do his job for this game.
