The Bulls actually play really good defense, so yeah, we can't beat the Raptors we're in trouble tomorrow.

too many minutes for nash and kobe and that isnt gunna help kobe's terrible shooting.
pau still starts and energy isnt there on d. they'll get out rebounded etc.
and nate robinson goes off. nuff said.

but im still gunna be positive and hope for a win but not expect it. bulls d will make our offense stall and go into kobe iso guarantee. dwight better come out right otherwise we lose. hes gotta get going early and guys gotta make the 3 ball went they sink in the paint.

and please start the game out right and with a nice lead not a deficit. 11-2 was beyond terrible. then it was like 20-4.

lakers win by less than 5. lead most of the game. dwight plays big. kobe shoots well. limit turnovers. nash and kobe facilitate. metta hits his shots and plays great d. jamison hits his shots. clark does what hes been doing..balling. duhon hits some shots too i hope. play solid d and communicate!!! help eachother and the helper! meeks maybe gets some burn?

lets go not too far behind 8th seed! theyre slipping and we gotta catch up now or never. lets go LAKERS :jam2:

Think it's come to that point where watching games is quite low on my list of priorities. Probably just check the score out for this one.

Over 80

Over 102 allowed

Over 15 TOs

Over 45% FG

Under 1 T.

If I get all these correct, do I get a dollar? :man1:

Anyone remember the Indiana game? Indiana is a tough defensive minded team that really made it difficult for us to generate offense; that was an ugly game. Additionally, we also lost on a last second layup. I see this same type of game; unfortunately, I believe another loss...

17 AND 27. THEN Jim Buss and Mitch will decide to do something, other than be the laughing stocks of the league and paying the heckling team owners millions in taxes. Of course, it will be too late.

It was too late at Christmas time.

QUICK PREVIEW
Lakers (17-23) at Bulls (23-16)
9:30 PM EST

LAKERS
Lost last 2
5-13 on the road
8-7 vs. East

PROBABLE STARTERS
Steve Nash 10.8 points, 8.8 assists, 2.7 rebounds
Kobe Bryant 29.6 points, 4.8 assists, 4.9 rebounds
Metta World Peace 13.5 points, 1.6 assists, 5.6 rebounds
Pau Gasol 12.6 points, 3.8 assists, 8.1 rebounds
Dwight Howard 17.3 points, 1.8 assists, 12.4 rebounds

BULLS
Lost last 1
11-11 at home
4-10 vs. West

PROBABLE STARTERS
Kirk Hinrich 6.3 points, 5.2 assists, 2.6 rebounds
Richard Hamilton 12.0 points, 2.4 assists, 1.9 rebounds
Joakim Noah 12.4 points, 4.1 assists, 10.6 rebounds
Jimmy Butler 5.7 points, 0.7 assists, 2.8 rebounds
Carlos Boozer 16.2 points, 2.2 assists, 6.4 rebounds

PREDICTION
A Derrick Rose-less Bulls team is one of the best defensive teams in the NBA and one of the better playoff teams. But when you subtract Luol Deng as well, the team starts to look pretty beatable. That is, if the Lakers had any clue what they're doing or who they are. The team is hopelessly struggling for identity, and a road win seems elusive right now.

The Bulls are terrible against the West and weak at home. They're playing back to back and lacking their two best players. There is some room to hope the Lakers will win, but the Lakers have repeatedly dropped opportunities to win favorable games. So even as a fan I'm not holding my breath.

Lakers 95
Bulls 100

It's so sad that we've come to expect this team to lose every game....i think we're definitely gonna lose tonight, then lose at memphis, and then lose at home to utah and OKC....we'll be 19-27 by the end of this month.

Clark will be starting. Pau on bench with 2nd unit at 5. Should make some folks happy. MDA needs to do something.

Honestly, Pau to the bench is a sign that D'Antoni has some stones.

As game time gets closer, I'm a little more confident. Lakers will win by virtue of actually putting together a good game and Pau coming off the bench.

Really glad that Pau won't be starting anymore and comes off the bench. MDA great call and if Pau ever wants to stay with this team is going to have to look at this as a opportunity to do his things as the C of the 2nd unit.

If not and Pau gets real upset about his new role, he will be traded.

Do you remember the time when we expected every single game to be a W, home or away -- and we were honestly surprised to see our team actually lose some of them?







Yeah, me neither.
