Slava laughed at the suggestion his skills might be affected by the down time. "Are you kidding?" he said. "Basketball is like ball. It's all a circle."

i have a good feeling about this game...

i think payton is gonna have a big game cuz he really doesnt have alot of competition at tha point guard position now that marbury isnt in phoenix anymore...Slava will have an off night cuz of Amare...but i think JAMAL SAMPSON and DEREK FISHER will come up big for us...

i'll say 102-99 lakers!

oh yea and we'll need to contain amare and the matrix to win this game...shut down one or tha other...

tha x-factor for tha suns will be JOE JOHNSON...so we better watch out for him...

remember this is tha worst team in tha western conference right now...and they coudl use a win against tha lakers...so they'll be playin with a sense of urgency...but like the ESPN guys kept sayin...all tha pressure is on tha opposing team of tha lakers...cuz tha lakers are sUPPOSED to lose these games that they are playing without shaq kobe malone fox and grant...

The Lakers will definitely win this game. The Suns are such a bad team, and the role players led by GP are getting it done. MLK day will end with a victory! And I'm glad Marbury is no longer in the West. :jam2:

I have a gut feeling Amare Stouemire will get into early foul trouble... remember that.

ok we're not DEFINETLY goin to win this game...remember tha suns beat tha blazers at tha rose garden and we lost to tha blazers there...but thats tha blazers...but anyway we cant jus say we're gonna wint his easily...this will prolly be jus like tha clipppers game...down tha wire...but i expect GP to take over this game...maybe not 25 pts and 13 assists....but maybe 18 pts and 8 assists but they will come at tha right time...and JAMAL SAMPSON and KAREEM RUSH will come up big for us

There isn't a Stephon Marburry to light it up against us so it shouldn't be as close as previous games. :man9:

this changes tha game completely...now we may see antonio mcdyess play...but they might jus not let him play again and put donnell harvey in tha starting lineup...

if anything this is good news for tha lakers and very bad newws for tha susns...now marion and johnson will hafta carry tha load for tha suns...i think our chances of winning jus increased drastically

thanks for the update LakerMan...Maciej Lampe has proven nothing yet, sources proclaim him the next "Nowitzki", we'll see about that and whether he can prove anything out there...don't forget the Suns have Howard Eisley who torched us for 26 points while he was in the Knicks...but as I made in BDG's good call section, the Suns therefore have no post presence w/out Amare and McDyess...we can easily cut to the basket with our small lineup therefore, but watch out for Joe Johnson and Shawn Marion...and Leandro Barbosa..watch out for him and his weird stroke...but I'll say that we win because historically, we're better than the Suns and veteranship beats youth...Shawn can't carry the team alone.

Yesterday i was worried about the result, but now when i realized that amaree is out, i think we have not good but great possibility to win. Slava will have another great night, i think that he may have a double double, and, of course i must mention the gary with his asissts will be the main reason why we will win this game.

We win tonight and we are in a tie with the T-Wolves and 2.5 games behind the Queens.

I say, chalk another one up for the good guys

for everyone that's been confused on who will be playing for the Suns tonight, and who won't, this will answer your questions:

Amare-didn't travel with the team to LA, he will miss tonight's game and Wednesday's game vs the Nuggets
McDyess-went on the IR due to a hurt knee and quadriceps
S. Williams-on the IR due to an injured back
Lampe-came off the IR, but is listed as questionable for tonight's game

Tonight's player matchups will be a condensed version.

GP/Barbosa:Barbosa has been playing well since Marbury left, but tonight he won't get anything. This matchup easily favors us, since thedeparture of Marbury. Gary will have a big night. Look for a lot of offense, between passing and shooting--he is going to be very involved tonight. Barbosa will be an easy matchup compared to what Marbury would have been.

Rush/Johnson: We need Rush to have another good offensive night. Johnson is bigger than him, but Kareem still has to manage to get to the basket or get the J. We also need for him to play at least some defense on Joe, so he won't get 20+ points,

George/Marion: This is the only matchup we have to worry about. Marion will have a field day against George, I am predicting 30+. He like to shoot and blow by his defender to get to the basket and I don't expect George to do much about it. George will continue to struggle, and make us realize how much we need Fox back, or Shaq to feed the ball to George.


Slava/Harvey: this should be easy, Harvey can't due much and wasn't expected to...since he's a 3rd string pf, but due to injuries, it looks like he will be starting tonight. Slava will have another big night, expect 20+ points, because there is nothing Harvey can do to stop him. I expect almost nothing out of Harvey, this is the same guy that got cut from the Magic because he wasn't producing.

Sampson/Voskuhl: Sampson should have another solid night for us. Voskuhl isn't anywhere near a solid big man, he will get a few boards and a few points...I think Jamal should be able to match and possibly outdo Jake.

So expect a lot from our guys tonight, taking advantage of a team that is lacking almost all of their talent (except Marion), and expect to see us to win this one with ease.
