Well, I might as well post now, since the game's tomorrow. We'll probably lose unless Dallas doesn't play D and allows us to score a lot of points. Since our lineup is small, the game might be up-tempo, but that's what Dallas wants. We must make our free throws and open shots! Our D and rebounds were better against Memphis but we still lost because we couldn't make a shot. Maybe go inside a little more? :man7:

LA Lakers (25-14) at Dallas (25-16) 9:30 pm EST

DALLAS (Ticker) -- The surging Dallas Mavericks seek to extend their season-high winning streak to six games on Thursday when they welcome the depleted Los Angeles Lakers to town.

Dallas won its fifth straightwith a 106-93 triumph over New Jersey on Tuesday. Antoine Walker scored 19 of his 22 points in the second half to lead the Mavericks. Dirk Nowitzki scored 19 points and Michael Finley and Steve Nash each added 18 as Dallas placed all five starters in double figures. Rookie Josh Howard scored 11 points and grabbed six rebounds.

The Mavericks held a 52-38 rebounding advantage and are 16-3 this season when outrebounding the opposition.

The Lakers have dropped eight straight road games after Wednesday's 88-82 loss at Memphis. Los Angeles once again played without the injured trio of Shaquille O'neal, Kobe Bryant and Karl Malone.

Los Angeles finished with its lowest offensive output of the season and shot a season-low 35 percent (29-of-83). It has not won on the road since a 114-103 victory at Dallas on December 4.

This is the fourth and final meeting between the teams. The Lakers won the first two before the Mavericks countered with a 110-93 victory at Los Angeles on December 12 that ended a 26-game road skid there.

Payton/Nash: Payton is going to have to be ready to run, because Nash likes to run and gun. Payton should be able to keep up with Nash, and prevent him from being a presence on offense. Payton will be able to get to the basket and get easy shots, because Nash (like all the Mavs) can't play D. Look for Nash to struggle, and Payton to have a good game. If we want to stay even close to the Mavs, then Payton has to be aggressive and score around 25 points, at least. Payton will win this matchup though.

Rush/Finley: Tonight will be a lot like last night, we aren't even going to know Rush is out there. Finley is going to make us wish it was Saturday and Kobe was back in action. Finley is going to dominate Rush on both ends of the court. He is going to light him us too. Hopefully Rush can play good defense and force Finley to rely on his jumper and not let him take it to the hole at will. Prediction: Finley 20+ points, Rush 10 (if we are lucky), but probably less.

Russell & George/Howard & Jamison: Russell has to keep playing well. We need for him to knock down some big 3's for us, he has been the only one with a steady 3 point shot, everyone else has been streaky. We know Russell will be able to shut down Howard, I'm not worried about that, but hopefully he can also have positive results against Jamison. For our sake, we better hope George gets hurt or something, or he will blow this game for us. He will come in for Russell and go 0-25 or something absurd like that or he will just hand the ball to Jamison instead of embarrassing himself by shooting. No...but seriously, we better hope Phil talks to George about his recent struggling, and only play him a few minutes at sf, but mostly at pf (when Dirk, Jamison, and Walker are on the bench), and tell him not to shoot, ust rebound and try to play some sort of defense.

Slava/Walker: This will be a shootout, but a shootout that we will lose. Both guys like to shoot the ball more, than drive it to the hoop. Walker would be happy with just shooting 3's all day, but we got to limit his shots to some degree. I think Slava might actually be a better defender than Walker, because the truth is neither have a very good defensive game. Slava needs to keep Walker from getting good looks and try and make him shoot outside shots, hopefully they don't fall. Slava won't have a big offensive game though, because the offense will be geared for GP tonight, we won't have a lot of time to slow things down and pound it into what we now have to call big men. Hopefully Slava will get 12-14 points and 10 or so rebounds.

Cook/Dirk: This will get ugly, trust me. Dirk is perhaps one of the best players in the league and he is going against our rookie that comes off the bench and hasn't played much until these injuries happened. Dirk will shoot the ball every time they give it to him, which will be a lot. He is going to prevent Cook from getting anything that resembles a shot and get most of the rebounds. Dirk will probably single handedly beat us. We have nothing to slow him down, much less stop him....anyone know if we signed a player, how long it would take for them to get to Dallas, because Rodman at 5% would even sound good to me. It would be better than watching Cook get cooked by Dirk. Prediction: Cook 4 points, Dirk 32 & 13

Something to think about:

-- We are playing against a fully healthy Mav's team
-- We only have 9 Laker players dressing out tonight
-- We only have one guy at least 6'9, Brian Cook

This is going to be one of the toughest games to get through. I predict a loss tonight, however, if we can somehow pull this off extremly undermanned. This might go down as one of the great reg. season victories in the past four, five years.

:man11: There's a few words in the Hawaiian language that describes the outcome of this game- "Smoked", "Annihalated", "Humiliated" :man10: ... Payton should take the night off and play when they'll have a better chance of winning.. :man10:
