I think we matchup terribly with the Clippers, but hopefully they have dead legs from playing a running game against the Rockets the night before. That might be our only hope

Doo Doo game

its the second night of a B2B for the Clippers...but it was the second night of a B2B too as we got owned in Boston. Clippers are a young team so I don't expect them to lack energy against the Lakers.

This would be a huge win. Go into the all-star break feeling good about the team, plus the Rockets are probably gonna lose to the Clippers tomorrow without Harden, so we'd be getting a whole game on them. Please win!

We need this win. A win against a good team is what we need to motivate us more.

This is where our lack of size can really hurt us. We need a big game from Dwight. I think we can pull this out, but it will be tough...

There are so many factors it makes my head spin. I need a drink. It's up to the individuals with numbers on their backs and Lakers logos to make the difference. Players have to rise up and make a difference. No other way.

hm...... if we win this game we can finally pass Portland and be at 9th place, and Houston also lost too so that turns to our favor. Must win game for us. I'll watch the Miami vs Thunder games first and hopes Miami lost

This is another chance to make up some ground on Houston; let's take advantage...

This MIA-OKC game is going by really really slow. I am afraid that TNT won't start the Lakers game on TBS when it comes time. I really hope they do.

QUICK PREVIEW
Lakers (25-28) vs. Clippers (38-17)
10:30 PM EST

LAKERS
Won last 1
16-10 at home
14-18 vs. West

PROBABLE STARTERS
Steve Nash 12.0 points, 7.4 assists, 2.8 rebounds
Kobe Bryant 27.0 points, 5.5 assists, 5.3 rebounds
Metta World Peace 13.0 points, 1.5 assists, 5.6 rebounds
Earl Clark 8.2 points, 1.1 assists, 6.2 rebounds
Dwight Howard 16.3 points, 1.6 assists, 11.9 rebounds

CLIPPERS
Won last 3
17-12 on the road
25-9 vs. West

PROBABLE STARTERS
Chris Paul 16.5 points, 9.5 assists, 3.5 rebounds
Chauncey Billups 9.3 points, 2.2 assists, 0.8 rebounds
Caron Butler 10.0 points, 1.0 assists, 2.8 rebounds
Blake Griffin 18.5 points, 3.6 assists, 8.7 rebounds
Deandre Jordan 9.0 points, 0.4 assists, 7.2 rebounds

PREDICTION
The Clippers have taken both games against the Lakers this season. I don't see any reason to suppose that this game will go differently. The Lakers should keep it close though.

Chris Paul has averaged 24 and 14, while the Clippers bench has scored two to three-times as many points as the Lakers' bench has. Kobe has averaged 39 points in the two meetings. He will almost certainly play a very different game tonight. It's something worth keeping an eye on.

Lakers 96
Clippers 100

Kobe will not be a facilitator tonight. Just have that feeling. Can't have all those turnovers either.

CP usually plays well against us. We'll see... But a win would be amazing, allowing us to come closer to that 8th seed. We need to play with urgency today!

all will depend on if the Clippers double him or not. I don't think they will.

That would mean the Clippers play 3 games in a row. Isn't everyone off after tonight for ASB?

He doesn't ever need to be facilitator. He just needs to facilitate. Balance. If he plays with balance, we have a real good shot.

Lakers/Clippers tipoff moved to 7:50 PM. Still over six minutes left in MIA/OKC.

Good..

Wade fouls out and walks to the locker room. :man10:

What a poor sport. Reggie made excuses for him, I'd hate to see the backlash if Kobe did that.
