Judging by how we guard the 3pt line, I am expecting no less than 20 three pointers made by the Suns.

If our "Post Sessions" trend continues look for Gortat to have a huge night and Nash to shred our Pick and Roll defense...... also look for fans to pile on Bynum.... no matter what happens....

When was the last time the Lakers played on two Saturdays in a row?

Looks like no Kobe tonight.. Devin Ebanks will start in his place

Via Kevin Ding's twitter:

Kobe will not play tonight due tenosynovitis of the left shin. He will be re-evaluated on Monday in New Orleans.

I'm expecting a monster performance from Bynum tonight to make up for all the crap he created. If not, this guy has to go ... asap! :mad1:

Yikes!..... No Kobe and Ebanks is starting?..... why start someone that hasn't played in 6 weeks? Guess we don't want to mess with those important rotations..... :man10:

Ebanks is starting. Please prove yourself tonight young man. Show Mike Brown that he can expand his rotation. :jam2:

Kobe usually destroys the Suns so this is kind of disappointing but oh well, let's see what they can do without him.

Let me enjoy some new blood in the lineup for the first time in months. :man10: When my senses come back to me, I agree with you, but for right now I'm excited to see what the hell is going on tonight.

Pau and MWP will need to pick up the slack tonight..... I didn't really have a good feeling about this game before we learned Kobe wasn't playing...... Right now our team is very susceptible to the Pick and Roll and we are going up against Gandalf the Grey of pick and rolls tonight......

:man10: ....

We have a 2 guard out tonight and we start a SF who hasn't played in 6 weeks in his place..... meanwhile we have a 3 guard on the bench that can at least play one half of the court fairly well who will sit again...... :bang:

Look for Pau and Andrew to get doubled early and often with an injured Sessions and 2 non-shooters on the floor to start.....

I don't get it... so Glock, who has played some and is a SG, will not start. But instead, Brown is going to start Ebanks who hasn't played at all -- a 6-9 guy playing SG? Or is Metta going to play SG instead? Wow.

That is puzzling....from 3rd string SF to starting SG. If Glock doesn't get any minutes tonight and Blake plays a majority of the backup minutes at the PG and SG something is wrong with Brown's head. The only other true SG on our team, in Glock, doesn't get the nod, so he better be getting some minutes tonight. We are going to need his scoring especially since Bynum will suck on defense and let the perimeter guys score.

MWP shouldn't play anything that starts with "Shooting"........
