we're getting closer to playoff time. we can't just shrug off losses to bad teams (at home or on the road). not just because of our record, but because of what that will mean when the games start to count for something more. we need to win this for sure.

I expect Kobe to sit again and to see a much more energized team on Friday. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Wiz keep it close in the first half.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Don't sleep on this team...playing much better as of late. Wall is a beast and they have a nice young team around him.

We should win this game. If in case, Kobe does sit out, it will give him more time to recover & get healthy. I do hope he returns, though.

Win, both Kobe and Pau Gasol will be back and play for this game.

We should beat the wizards at full strength and running on all cylinders.

QUICK PREVIEW
Lakers (36-33) vs. Wizards (24-43)
10:30 PM EST

LAKERS
Lost last 1
23-11 at home
17-11 vs. East

PROBABLE STARTERS
Steve Nash 12.7 points, 6.8 assists, 2.8 rebounds
Kobe Bryant 27.1 points, 5.8 assists, 5.4 rebounds
Metta World Peace 12.9 points, 1.5 assists, 5.2 rebounds
Pau Gasol 12.7 points, 3.8 assists, 8.3 rebounds
Dwight Howard 16.4 points, 1.4 assists, 12.5 rebounds

WIZARDS
Won last 1
6-28 on the road
12-14 vs. West

PROBABLE STARTERS
John Wall 15.7 points, 7.5 assists, 3.5 rebounds
Garrett Temple 4.3 points, 2.3 assists, 2.3 rebounds
Martell Webster 11.6 points, 1.9 assists, 3.8 rebounds
Nene Hilario 13.0 points, 2.9 assists, 6.9 rebounds
Jason Collins 0.0 points, 1.0 assists, 1.5 rebounds

PREDICTION
The Lakers beat the Wizards back in December. That was without Gasol and Nash, but it was also without John Wall. The Wizards are making a bit of a run right now, but the Lakers are creeping toward full strength. They will likely have Pau Gasol and Kobe Bryant back in the starting lineup.

The Lakers haven't shot particularly well against Washington over the past few seasons, but they have still managed to win three of the last four meetings. It will be interesting to see what John Wall does, but look for the Gasol and Bryant return to push the Lakers over the top.

When I have a team up 8 or more I haven't been wrong, as far back as I can remember.

Wall will really test our defense. Which means he will break us down routinely. Dwight cannot get into early foul trouble or it will be a layup line.

Kobe needs to respect Webster -- who has been raining 3s lately.

Nene is the type of physcial hustle player (like Faried) that will give Gasol and Clark fits.

Watch for Ariza to try to light up Artest and surely Meeks. We just need for Ron to play within himself and not shoot more than 8 times.

Hopefully Gasol can give us a solid 20 minutes, mostly with Dwight out.

It's tough cutting over after watching UCLA vs. Minn. Tight game so far.

a game i get to watch locally. Kobe and Pau return....

we are 11-1 since the AS break at home against one of the more poor teams (My "Hometown" team) in the league.... i dont want to see a repeat of the season opener (Kings) where it was a guaranteed W on paper, i want to see us execute and go 37-33. :jam2:

Pau is out of synch. His stamina may be low because of the layoff. He'll come off the bench and find his legs eventually. It's all up to him if he wants to make a diff. Kobe will always be Kobe. Let's win :jam2:
They started Pau... great!
