It'd be nice to make a statement here, but Indy's pretty tough to beat. I wouldn't bet on it.

It's not looking good. Hopefully Nash can still carry the team when necessary.

Kobe always bases his decisions to play on whether or not he can do more damage to the injury. Based on the severe ankle sprain, I don't think he will play.

With this said I wouldn't say the Lakers don't have a chance, we just have to step up with Kobe being out and we can do this by hitting our wide open shots from 3 that we get and by making sure Dwight doesn't get into early foul trouble.

Big game. Not very hopeful.

That's when Odom and Shannon we're flying high. There was a lot more talent back then. Pau's absence has just doubled in value.

The most important thing in this game is to come out of it without any injuries ... Pacers are very physical, D12 better be careful about his shoulder

You know what? I think this game is more competitive then people think. Indiana is a good team; no doubt about that. However, in that weak Eastern Conference, I feel they're a bit overrated, IMO. They have great size; West & Hibbert are solid. George is an All-Star. Nevertheless, the tempo that they play at should favor us and they go through periods where they have a really hard time scoring.

Metta should start of guarding West; Clark should guard George. Metta has the strength and defensive ability to make West work on the offensive end. Clark has the length and matches up a little better with George, IMO. Jamison & Blake need to have good games. Nash needs to be Nash. Meeks needs to hit open 3's.

WTS, I think we win this 94-88 in an upset...

Okay...

This is either going to be very competitive in which the game is close at the end and we have a slim chance at pulling out the win...

Or it's a blow out loss some time in the 2nd or 3rd quarters.

I'm hopeful for the first one. I think our team has shown a TON of heart in these last few weeks and this could be a big game for them mentally with or without Kobe Bryant. I really hope we step up, I just don't really think we will. We're not quite there yet.

March the 16th is my birthday, and this game starts exactly at midnight here (Germany), so this will be the first game in a long time that I'll miss. Please make this happen, this would mean so much to me, if we'd fought throught this game without Kobe. But with an energized Howard, an high-scoring Nash and some nice production from our troubled shooters (MWP, Jamison, Meeks, Clark) this could be a big, big, big, all-wow win. Please fight, please don't give up on this team too early.

I can't wait to see result of this game, when I'm coming home. Whenever that will be.

Have fun, guys. Cheer for me, please!

QUICK PREVIEW
Lakers (34-32) at Pacers (40-25)
7:00 PM EST

LAKERS
Lost last 1
12-21 on the road
16-11 vs. East

PROBABLE STARTERS
Steve Nash 12.4 points, 6.7 assists, 2.7 rebounds
Kobe Bryant 27.5 points, 5.8 assists, 5.5 rebounds
Metta World Peace 12.7 points, 1.4 assists, 5.3 rebounds
Earl Clark 7.9 points, 1.1 assists, 6.0 rebounds
Dwight Howard 16.4 points, 1.4 assists, 12.4 rebounds

PACERS
Won last 1
26-7 at home
14-10 vs. West

PROBABLE STARTERS
George Hill 14.5 points, 4.8 assists, 3.9 rebounds
Lance Stephenson 8.5 points, 2.7 assists, 3.8 rebounds
Paul George 17.6 points, 4.0 assists, 7.8 rebounds
David West 17.5 points, 3.0 assists, 7.7 rebounds
Roy Hibbert 10.7 points, 1.4 assists, 8.0 rebounds

PREDICTION
The Pacers won an ugly one in LA back in November despite 40 points from Kobe. David West led the way with a near triple double (16-10 and 8 dimes). It was a bit of good D from Indiana and some terrible offense from the Lakers (.316-.214-.535 shooting split).

Bryant might play, but I have the Pacers winning either way. The Lakers lost a close one last season as well, despite another strong performance from Kobe. If LA can catch fire from three, they could steal this one. A more likely scenario is an Indiana blowout.
