We usually don't do well against Toronto for some reason (Kobe's buzzer beater last year, anyone?) Hopefully we come out the gate stomping on them.

You confused me there with the "buzzer beater," as I didn't recall Kobe having any last season but I checked and it was a game winner. Hopefully it doesn't come down to it. :man12:

Oh yah, you're right; there were 4 seconds left. Too used to saying buzzer beater. :man11:

They need this game; it's time to start to put at least another 6-7 in a row...

Win. Don't even care about jynxs and all that crap, all of these games need to be booked as Ws before they even start or this team won't make the playoffs.

QUICK PREVIEW
Lakers (17-22) at Raptors (14-26)
1:00 PM EST

LAKERS
Lost last 1
5-12 on the road
8-6 vs. East

PROBABLE STARTERS
Steve Nash 10.4 points, 8.8 assists, 2.8 rebounds
Kobe Bryant 29.7 points, 4.7 assists, 4.9 rebounds
Metta World Peace 13.6 points, 1.6 assists, 5.7 rebounds
Earl Clark 4.4 points, 1.2 assists, 4.0 rebounds
Dwight Howard 17.7 points, 1.8 assists, 12.7 rebounds

RAPTORS
Lost last 4
10-9 at home
6-14 vs. West

PROBABLE STARTERS
DeMar DeRozan 17.5 points, 1.8 assists, 4.5 rebounds
Amir Johnson 9.0 points, 1.5 assists, 6.3 rebounds
Jose Calderon 10.8 points, 7.6 assists, 2.5 rebounds
Landry Fields 4.2 points, 1.6 assists, 5.2 rebounds
Ed Davis 9.2 points, 1.2 assists, 6.5 rebounds

PREDICTION
Pau Gasol is back and likely coming off the bench. As long as he can tolerate the move, he fortifies the Lakers' bench. LA's starters should be able to cruise against Toronto's starters, so if the bench is strong, this could be a blowout.

The biggest challenge from Toronto is going to be speedy PGs (Calderon and Lowry). If LA can corral them, the game should go well. Pau Gasol is clearly the x-factor for the Lakers. He had a big game in a narrow win against Toronto last year (17-16 and 6 assists).

Lakers 102
Raptors 101

This one we should win, despite their youth and size I hope we beat them like we've done the other teams "We're suppose to beat".

Read on Twitter that Toronto is 0-20 when the opponent scores 100+.

We got that going for us. :jam2:

We are close to that 8 spot. Have to start winning some games now.
