Hello, everyone this is my first thread, so be NICE!
Once again the obvious will happen.
I see a well contested game by both teams for three and half quarters with the Lakers controlling the tempo and the Blazers hanging on, only because of home crowd support. Then after the 6 minute mark of the 4th, Sheed starts arguing over a close call, gets a T, followed by Dale Davis or some other thug doing the same. TYPICAL BLAZERS MELTDOWN. The Lakers and the Diesel will convert the charity points down the stretch and secure the win.
I'm not as concerned with the Blazer game as I am with the final two games in our schedule. At full strength, the Lakers always play with PASSION as visitors in very hostile arenas. However, the Lakers in the past and even at times this year tend to play in the level of their opponents. So, a Nuggets team that almost beat the Kings at Arco a couple of days ago and a squad that has nothing to lose, can be very dangerous in Staples IF OVERLOOKED!!!!. I know that eventually, Kobe will score his typical double nickle
against the Nuggets and a blowout is almost certain, but the Nuggets should not be overlooked. Also, we all know that a young and talented Warriors team that we have to play in the second part of a back-to back game Wednesday match very well against us. So the Lakers should not regard these teams as cupcakes.
However, I sense that Phil and the Lakers wants that 4th seeding and will do anything to end the regular season with a 9 game winning streak and momentum towards the playoffs. The team is in a roll and homecourt for the first round should be ours.
I'm just glad to be part of a site/forum that allows differences in opinions to be heard. TRUST ME, there are team sites that doesn't do the same.
LETS GO FOR 4 LAKERS!!!!!DO IT 4 CHICK
