Is it safe to say that Fisher is finally out of his slump?

hahah you have no idea what your talking about. I predicted it perfectly, lets see your prediction LOL

I predict it will be a hard fought game.. whoever plays the hardest will win the game. Magic's defense will be a lot better. This was a good defensive team during the regular season and they shut down Lebron's Cavs. Also the asst coach implemented the jordan rules in detroit and won a ring there.

101-98 LA

Once again, still has nothing to do win LA. They didn't play D, as you saw and they played like they were dead, like you saw. And I was commenting on the Cavs reference. The Magic beat the Cavs because they didn't have anyone to defend Dwight or Lewis. Hell, their bench didn't show up.

The Lakers played the best D you could for a over time game.
41.8% and 20 turnovers. The had 4 quarters and over time and couldn't score more then 100. Pretty solid D.

The key to beating Orlando is slowing down the tempo. They only a 2 Fastbreak points. At home they will likely be better.

Man, there were so many awful calls against us. That goaltend with Howard putting his hand thru the net was bush. And then in crunch time the ball not going off Kobe's knee like the ref said was another bush call. I can't imagine Orlando getting more gifts like they did in this game.

I was talking about in general. And like i said, once again, I was really commenting on the guy refering to the Cavs vs Magic. The Cavs and LA are VERY different.

Just think, that non-call on the goaltend in the first quarter could have completely changed this series.

Yeah he sounded so stupid when he asked that. Lol. The least he could do is articulate a question in a logical way where his words actuall match what he has in his mind :man10:

Are you saying if that bucket went down lakers would of build their big lead from there and never look back? Orlando got their defense better but I think their shooting will improve when they go home where their environments at.

My intuition has been scary accurate, I'm scaring myself lol! I said we'd win game 5 and 6 and we did when we played Denver. I said we'd win game one with no hesitation even though I was nervous, and I said we'd win game 2 even though it would be close. I don't have any feelings about game 3 maybe until the mid-day or Tuesday lmfao! Lol!

Lakers got away with one cause Kobe didn't play that well. The last plays before OT, Kobe had three guys wide open: Fisher, Ariza, and LO ready to receive the pass. He should have passed it instead of putting up the shot against three guys. I know we should have our best player take the last shot, but not against three guys. That put us in a predicament cause we nearly lost the game when Kobe got burned on that screen allowing a rookie to attempt a layup for the win. Luckily, Kobe had enough help in OT. Fisher didn't suck as much as he usually does, Trevor was good defensively, Pau was solid, and LO is playing like an MVP right now.

whew, man what an ending. We were VERY fortunate. Two things that stand out: how lucky are we that Turkoglu had his foot on the line on that 3-pt shot that he made near the end of regulation, and Lee had a very, very, VERY makeable layup at the end of regulation. It's amazing how little plays like that can change a game or series.

On RealGM Magic fans are bailing Lee out saying it was a tough, tough look.

Great, gutsy win against a team that you knew wasn't gonna roll over.. That last play to Lee ALMOST coulda given us all nightmares, but it stayed out, and we took it over in OT.. Pau came up huge, Fish did the same and LO played his azz off, despite letting Rashard get open way too much in the first half.. And CLUTCH FT's to ice the game at the end..

And EFF all this talk about getting ONE in Orlando, let's get TWO and bring that Larry O'Brien trophy on the plane back home where it belongs..

nah, it was a very makeable shot. It was semi-tough because he had .6 seconds and gasol came over to contest but nonetheless you got to make that shot.

yea i would've definately had nightmares had it went it, just like Tim Thomas's 3-pointer in game 6 in the 2006 playoffs. That shot still hurts.

I figured you come in here and blame a win on Kobe but not in a positive way, you're just so consistent with yours....I can't tell how you'd be if we would've lost, *smfh*

Well at the end they loss the ball twice because kobe was looking to pass but it just became a turn over. Kobe took matters into his own hands. Of course Orlando played triple D on him which caught him off guard. But he did give two big assist at the end and made his free throws when needed. So he still remains the best closer and we won. The end.

I was sitting there shaking my head when hedo hit that two pointer, before kobe had made the bank shot tying it. I was like, orlando is gonna pull it off somehow and their gonna make those big shots. What i liked about this win, is that the lakers didnt quit. and im loving Pau's toughness against howard. hes putting in some work. Who here is ready for that parade? and question...what time would it be?
