The thread is now open, so get discussing!

Sorry about the locked thread, the internet went down at the apartment.

Anyways, good news Kobe is playing tonight. This is going to be a tough game.

If we can use our steam to get a big lead fast we can put Luke, Cook, Fisher, George, and a veteran in for a good while.

this is good news, most of their big men are hurt, so they will have to play Potapenko and Booth almost the whole game. Lewis may have to play some PF, to give Booth a rest. Shaq and Malone have to take advantage of their lack of depth in the frontcourt, this would help us get a win.

jsm, no offense man, but where is the site where you get all that info again..? Can you provide a link?

BTW, good news that Evans is probably out :man10: the dude was the one who Kobe rammed into last time (*sniffs* breaking his shoulder)

Radmanovic is out too?...Wow, the Sonics must've gotten themselves injured to prepare for this game

With the way the Lakers have been playing, this will be win #11!

I'm sure Payton will have a big game to make up for the loss in Seattle earlier this season, and Kobe + Malone never seem to run out of gas. Shaq will be tired as hell, but with the big men out for the Sonics, even an exhausted Shaq can do some damage :boxing1: .

Contain Allen and claim the 1st seed in the West :jam2: !

i think Lakers will need to stop their 3s if they wanna win, they might be a bit slow getting going, but when 4th comes
Dont worry
Kobe is here :man1:

This game is gonna be a war but, like most games from here on out, it's a must-win. Go Lakers...

Lakers: 102
Sonics: 90

Ive got faith that they will win this game, i mean the Lakers wanna keep this streak going and theyre playing with a purpose now. Plus a win would give us sole possession of #1 in the West. After a sub par 21 TO performance with poor shooting last night i expect them to turn it up a notch and play good here, its their first game on the road in a while so maybe they can get up for it. I predict a hefty Lakers win, with a Seattle run in the 4th quarter

Yeah, plus, the Lakers know how vital the 1st seed is to their success. It's going to be a good game.

Im curious, why does everybody say the laker are tired after back to back games. SUre we dont do good in back to back games but the guys have time to sleep on the plane ride dont they?? Its like saying ill play you in a pickup game tonight at 10 and play another pickup game tomorrow at 7 am. Im sure youll be energized again by then.
Maybe im missing the point.

Because the Lakers are tired. They're somewhat of an "oldler" team. Tonight will be dangerous, we're not at home (Like we've been for a while) and the Sonics will look to beat us.

It will be a tough game.

I think the Lakers will win, but not by much, unless they manage to not play to the level of their competition again. I want to see Ray Allen lose and GP to have a big game against his former team. Go Lakers! :jam2:

Ugly looking game... Lakers have given up 4 offensive rebounds in 4 min. Shaq just had a nice dunk though.
