If we lose to the Queens....then this win was absolutely worthless.

Must and should win

Must win. Don't think they will disappoint

According a tweet, I read a few moments ago; Cousins might not play due to a quad injury. Either way, I think we win...

This will be entirely on MDA. If he can't sustain the winning ways without Kobe then he sucks big. These guys showed a dynamic aspect and surprised everyone. It's beginning to show what a different direction the team goes without Kobe. Now is the time for our own 'Linsanity' to materialize. MDA was responsible for Lin when Melo was injured. He was a nobody. They almost cut him. They went on a 10+ game winning streak. Believe in miracles.

They need to take the queens very seriously. They have guys who kill us -- Thornton and Salmons -- and if Cousins plays, it will be tough on Howard, Gasol, and Clark.

I will say it again, Dwight needs to avoid foul trouble. And we know that Sac will try to get him in foul trouble with Cousins and drives to his body by Reke.

I don't like playing them -- they get up to play us and always seem to beat us in March and April every year.

Lakers/Kings games are usually a matter of which team outscores the other ... not exactly good news with Kobe out ... the outcome of the game will depend on our 3pts shooting ... not the greatest guarantee in B-Ball

QUICK PREVIEW
Lakers (35-32) vs. Kings (23-43)
9:30 PM EST

LAKERS
Won last 1
22-11 at home
18-21 vs. West

PROBABLE STARTERS
Steve Nash 12.4 points, 6.7 assists, 2.7 rebounds
(?)Kobe Bryant 27.1 points, 5.8 assists, 5.4 rebounds
Metta World Peace 12.8 points, 1.5 assists, 5.3 rebounds
Earl Clark 7.9 points, 1.1 assists, 6.0 rebounds
Dwight Howard 16.5 points, 1.4 assists, 12.4 rebounds

KINGS
Won last 1
6-28 on the road
9-28 vs. the West

PROBABLE STARTERS
Isaiah Thomas 13.1 points, 3.7 assists, 2.0 rebounds
Tyreke Evans 15.6 points, 3.4 assists, 4.6 rebounds
John Salmons 9.1 points, 3.1 assists, 2.7 rebounds
Patrick Patterson 7.3 points, 1.0 assists, 4.3 rebounds
Jason Thompson 11.2 points, 1.1 assists, 6.8 rebounds

PREDICTION
Some question marks in both starting lineups. Kobe is listed as "game time" according to D'Antoni, and DeMarcus Cousins is questionable. The Lakers can win this game even if Kobe misses and Cousins plays, but it won't be without its tense moments. The teams split the series last year, and it's even this season. If Cousins is out, Howard should have a huge game. If Cousins plays, look for three point shooting to be key, in particular from Sacramento.

The Kings don't really have the toughness to match up with Dwight outside Cousins. Nash has not played the Kings since joining LA; in his last game against the Kings, he nearly triple doubled.

Lakers 112
Kings 100

I don't think Cousins will play. Neither will Kobe; he should really rest.

What needs to happen tonight: Dwight smash, Nash shoot!

Simple.

Dwight needs to avoid ANY fouls in the first quarter and play smart while sealing -- as you know they will flop to try to draw fouls.

BTW -- did that knucklehead Stevenson get fined for that flop last game??

Dwight moving and setting up early... Getting deep position and getting the fouls. Nice.

Maybe we should guard the 3. Just a suggestion.
