Portland needs this game to move up and play Dallas instead of L.A.? L.A. could use an easier hand with New Orleans so...

If the Lakers are serious about staying ahead of Bos/Mia/Dal (forget about SA/Chi), they'll put the 3-game losing streak behind them and take this one. Otherwise, it'll be another ugly loss.
Thanks for the sig, Jr. Kobe.

Possibly. I don't think the 1st round will be a problem for us, but I would also rather face the Hornets.
Thanks for the sig, Jr. Kobe.

We really have to win this one, to stay ahead of MIA and BOS.

Loss. Can't beat Denver's role players at HOME. Can't beat Jazz scrubs and rooks at HOME. Can't stay disciplined to win against GS gunners. Gasol playing soft defensively. Shannon is worse than Smush. Fisher can't shoot a good % to save his life. Kobe is stubborn and won't play facilitator properly. No way the Lakers win BOTH games in Portland this year.

4 game losing streak. No expectations for tonight at all. Sorry guys.

Go ahead and flame. I called the Denver loss on page one. Called the GS loss on page one. Calling this one too.

No Camby tonight for the Blazers. Drew is 50/50 last I heard.

What is wrong with Andrew?

No Camby -- so again the Lakers will have a huge advantage inside -- if Drew plays. Will they pound it and make it easy for themselves? Or shoot jump shots all night because they are stupid??????

Tough time to lose three in a row only to end up in Portland a very tough city historically for LA. But, there is no real reason the Lakers shouldn't win this one(or the previous three for that matter), it all just comes down to how seriously they take the game.

Which team is showing up tonight? Personally I don't think the Lakers have dug a deep enough hole yet for them to worry about... someone needs to put a hair up their collective butts :mad1:

They better get there act together. They seem to be in cruise control heading into the playoffs and feel they can just flip the switch. Well guess what that switch doesn't work in a seven game series when playing Boston or Miami on the road. They need to win and keep there edge over the Celtics and Heat. If they they do so they will finish 3rd just like they did last season and I like there chances. But to lose tonight will show that if it comes down to them losing in the the conference finals on the road or in the Finals, they'll have only to look at themselves for the lackluster play and lack of respect of the regular season.

Kobe had a wide open jumper, but didn't take it. I guess he's surprised to be that wide open.
