This one will depend on health. Can Blake play? Is Meeks still out? Can another epidural help Nash as he tries to push through the pain? If we have to continue to bump Morris' minutes and possibly even start either him or Glock...this could get ugly fast. TP and Manu are looking better and healthier each game.

Have to do a better job of closing out quarters at home. Have to keep dumping it in to Dwight. Perimeter players have to hit. And how about Pau shows up for at least one game this series...is that too much to ask?

Not sure how some of you can be so confident we'll take this one considering Nash and Meeks are doubtful, and Blake isn't playing. A potential backcourt of Morris/Goudelock to start does not excite me..

With that said I'm hoping we can pull this one out just for pride sake. Get the ball in the paint and stop chucking up 3's!

I still believe we can win a game. Dwight needs to avoid early foul trouble, Glock needs to hit a couple of shots early to have confidence, and Metta cannot try to do too much, which results in TOs and layups for Leonard and Manu. Jamison can get hot and hit 3 or 4 3s, and Clark plays aggressively, it could happen.

All of that, to me, falls on Gasol (i) hitting his mid-range consistently, like 6 of 10, and (ii) making good passes for assists and hockey assists.

Dwight and Gasol need to be agressive to get Duncan in foul trouble, and that coule be our big break to playing with a lead the whole game.

The only game we will win due to the excitement of the players & crowd of being back home, by game 4 this will fade & we will eventually lose in 5 @ SA

Doesn't it suck to have no expectations for these Lakers? I miss the good ol days...

I've been thinking that we win this game, but it looks like we might be without Blake, Meeks AND Nash? wtf..
Assuming that's indeed the case, I guess we'll play Morris and Glock?

I'm with you although I'll downgrade my optimism from "believing" we can win a game, to hoping we can. Maybe it'll be this one? You never know. It will be tough without any of our regular backcourt players though.

Do yourself a favor and have no expectations. Just enjoy the game. The only hope is the crew that shows up keeps up a close fight and do not melt down. That's a tall order but they owe us that much.

Now John Ireland just reported that Kobe will watch the game from the Locker room because after all the media talking about his whole twitter thing he doesn't want to take away from the team in anyway. :man5: damn!

Pau must carry this team for at least one win. I hope he can at least do that. I still have higher expectation for him than Dwight

If we win this one, I will consider this season a success.

I have a weird feeling Goudelock will have a big game. Will it matter? Who knows.
