God damn...the Heat have only lost back to back games once this season and it was way back on January 13th. We'll pretty much need to play a perfect game to beat them.

HUGE game right here. You have a team in Miami who everyone has crowned as the premature NBA champs and you have a team in the Lakers that everyone has written off. Great opportunity to show the world this team is still a legit contender.

I want to see Fisher actually perform as a point guard like he did for the first time in his career last night against the Kings. Where did that come from?? More dimes, less bricks and it'll make things wayyyy easier for us.

Kobe can act like Wade's foul didn't bug him but I have a feeling he's gonna go Mamba on Wade.

I watched the majority of the Jazz vs. Heat game to try and get a better sense of where the Heat are at. The thing that the Heat excel at, pretty much more than any other team in the league, is scoring fast and easy points. If you are up 12 on them and give them a window at all, they will close the gap in no time. This is pretty much the antithesis of what the Lakers are good at as a team. One of the worst Lakers tendencies this season has been giving up comfortable leads, or failing to build on small leads. Pretty much every game, no matter the quality of opponent, the Lakers have let that opponent back in, sometimes resulting in a L. Against a team like the Heat, that's pretty much the last thing you want to do. (thought realistically, it almost can't be helped with the Wade/Lebron sucker punch)

On Paper, The Lakers have their work cut out for them in a big way.

Still, the Lakers have been playing better basketball recently, and if Kobe has a strong game, there is no reason the Lakers can't beat Miami. But, The Heat are a very good team, arguably the best in the game, and where they excel is exactly in areas that LA isn't so sharp.

The problem is that this is a horrible strategy against good defensive teams and it's even worse against good defensive teams with the best transition game in the league. If Kobe forces up long distance shots he plays right into Miami's hands because they score off those misses in the open court faster than you can blink. This game cannot be won if Kobe tries to win it by himself, it may work on scrub teams but not the Heat.

@ Forward Three

IMO the only way to beat the Heat is to keep the turnovers down. LA is about middle of the pack when it comes to turning the ball over, but it's absolutely imperative you don't turn the ball over excessively if you want to beat the Heat. As for LeBron, I don't see us having much success against him. Artest is just way too slow and Barnes is not strong enough.

Both LeBron and Wade are due for a stinker though, they seemingly haven't had a bad game in months. Hopefully at least one of them doesn't show up on Sunday.

Our entire team has to play pretty much perfectly for us to beat the Heat. Kobe can't have a bad game or try and do too much, Drew and Pau have to be on top of their games, Fisher cannot suck, Ron has to play good D and not jack up horrible 3's, and the entire bench has to step up. If pretty much just one key player doesn't show up, we're going to get beat, this Heat team does not mess around. I believe we can win the game or I wouldn't bother to watch, but it's gonna be tough, I just hope it's fairly ref'd or we stand no chance.

Blowout loss. Kobe shoots like garbage. Everybody else sucks. LBJ goes off. Some scrub from Miami hits a bunch of threes. So predictable.

If Kobe decides to try and go Mamba on the Heat, we're doomed to lose by an embarrassing score. Smart Kobe has to show up, keep the ball moving on offense and pick his spots to score in higher percentage spots on the floor.

Yep just realized I won't be able to watch ANY of the game. Sucks but at least if they get blown out it won't hurt as much.

All we need is our shots to fall, that's the main issue regarding this game against Miami. Our guys have to make their lay-ups, 15 footers and I don't want anyone taking a ill amount of 3's but if they do they have to go in. We just have to establish our offense, the defense is there most of the time when it needs to be but our offense can get complacent and then things go south. So I hope and pray everyone is offensively ready for this game. I just can't see us lose to Miami again, and please don't let Bean shoot like crap.

Lakers' offense will be there. They have a good chance of winning if they can take care of the ball.

Could Broussard be any more in love with the Heat? Loves LeBron, keeps defending Wade's foul on Kobe, now he's talking about how big Wade's muscles are, he's like literally in love with them.

I'm pretty upset that Bosh isn't gonna play....means that their role players are going to play out of their minds again...and also even if we WIN, there will be an asterisk on it because Bosh didn't play (and Bosh has played REALLY well against us since he came to the Heat).

So pissed :mad1:

Mark Medina: Juwan Howard walked by to say hi to Mike Brown during pregame scrum. LeBron James did not
