Lakers - 112
Suns - 122

Lakers' Home Opener Slips Away
Kobe Bryant's 39 points and Lamar Odom's near-triple-double (23 points, 16 rebounds and eight assists) were not enough to carry the Lakers, who lost to the Suns 122-112 on Thursday. Bryant's torrid scoring almost brought Los Angeles back, but Phoenix pulled away late. The Lakers retake their home court on Sunday when the Denver Nuggets come to town.

Its a back to back...

like to think we would fight.

But ive seen much NBA ... they will either take tonights game as a push....or they will be over tired and lose.

Cant wait.

Home opener should be a must win but usually teams that have an emotional night play with less intensity the back-to-back and considering we went to overtime it will be a dogfight but a home oepner is always special. I still say we win but even I know our team will be inconsistent. We need to cut down TOs and get a better front court production. We can´t expect Smush to always score 20.

To be honest, I think the Lakers will take this one pretty easily. They match up much better to this year's Suns than last year's.

this win will depend on mihm and kwame. neither one really showed up tonight. chris mihm is notorious for playing terrible on the road and good at home. you know he'll want to bounce back. the suns dont have nearly the inside presence the nuggets have. i expect mihm and kwame to play well. as for kobe..this is what he spent the offseason doing. getting in shape. making himself quicker and able to run longer. i dont expect him to be visibly tired. we will win. yes, 2-0. :jam2:

Brandon's Analysis
The Phoenix Suns are coming off a loss to the Dallas Mavericks, while the Lakers clawed their way to a victory over the Denver Nuggets, two games driving past regulation to make for one heck of a show in the first two days of the regular season. The difference is one game was played last night, and the other the night before. Unfortunately for Phil and Kobe, they have the back-to-back. The good news? It's their first home game of the year. Mix in the fact that Amare won't be playing for quite some time, and the Lakers have a shot at winning this game versus last year's MVP and his partner in crime, the Matrix.

Unless Nash is speaking in Canadian, he will most definitely be calling the shots in Los Angeles tonight. It almost seems as if these two teams are similar, without Amare...both ran by MVP-caliber players, with versatile forwards as secondary scoring options...that is, if Odom wants to score. If the Lakers want to defeat these angry Suns, they're going to have to pound the ball inside and take advantage of Stoudemire's absence, and this means guard slashing, as well as our big men working the paint. Odom can have it fairly easy on offense tonight, especially if Marion has to hold Kwame most of the time, so look for Lamar to use his size advantage against James Jones to drive the lane and score on his own.

A true test for Los Angeles will be defending the perimeter. Jones, Jackson, Nash, Marion, Bell, Barbosa...these guys aren't shy to take a long-range jumper, or even a few beyond the arc, when they are left open, and this could give us trouble early in the game. This could be a great opportunity for Vujacic to work on his defense a bit more, because in his first appearance against the Nuggets, he didn't look so shabby. We all realize an "A" for effort gets us nowhere, but he's laying it all out there to prove that he belongs in purple and gold, something I can only respect.

Brandon's Prediction
Camby destroyed Mihm last night, and it looks as if Marion and Kurt Thomas will look to do the same to a worn and torn Chris Mihm tonight. Phil would be smart to play Bynum, who has a bigger frame to bang with Thomas, giving him some playing time and letting him do his own thing in the triangle. Otherwise, we've got a big kid who has no idea what his role is on this team.

The Lakers and Suns will fight for a win in this game as well. I don't see the Lakers' frontcourt doing much, once again, but Kobe and Smush can damage the Suns' backcourt defense (or lack of) and turn this game around for Los Angeles. If the Suns and Lakers agree to duel it out offensively, expect the Lakers to lose by 10 or more points. If they go at it defensively and make consistent stops throughout the game, taking their time offensively, then it's anyone's game.

Phil is angry, Kobe is all smiles, and Mihm is afraid he's already in the doghouse...they all stand out, and the Lakers beat the Suns, 101-96.
Real Deal

Great take real, I definetely agree with the offensive/defensive approach for this game. I think there's no questions we will make stops and play slightly better defense tonight. And after last night, our confidence should carry though in some momentum.

Also, Smush's nickname is now the truth. I will refer to him as this from now on. I am absolutely in love with this guy.

Don't know...Kobe may be assigned to defend Nash most of the game tonight.

That maniac Thomas is going to really be the difference in this game. If Thomas is his usual aggressive self and intimidates Mihm and or Bynum you can forget it.

Im looking forward to the Bell / Kobe match up.

Bottom line.....Lakers show up and win by 3.

This will be tough. Last previous game the suns without Amare gave the Mavs hell before they went down. Kobe's speed will be tested here since this will be a very uptempo like game. I'm hoping we will do our best to lock down on D otherwise it will be a long night for the Lakers.

If we play defense like we did last night we lose. If Mihm and Brown play like they did last night we lose. Tonight is the night for Parker to show his worth. If Kobe is stuck on Nash all game its gonna be a long night for Kobe.

You see all the open 3's that Denver got last night.

PHX can shoot, they won't oblige us with brick after brick.

Similarily, Kwame and Odom should have a good offensive nigth. Smush and George need to shoot the 3 as well as they did last night for us to have a chance, ESPECIALLY on the 2nd night of a back to back.

We have to take the ball inside because Phoenix has no size. I hope they keep James Jones in check with good defense. Bell has always excelled against the Lakers. I hope LA isn´t too tired.

Nash has no D, so Smush will own him on the offensive end IMO. On the defensive end however, I don't know if Smush will be able to keep up with the playmaking of Nash. I'm looking to see another good production night for our Lakers backcourt. Also with Marion guarding Kwame, I think he'll have a better night in the scoring department. Mihm on the other hand will struggle again like usual. Overall, I think the tempo of the game will determine the outcome of who wins.

Lakers win: 109 - 99 :jam2:
