The Thuggets will blow out the Lakers with or without K-Mart (even if Drew comes back) unless the team responds to their Easter Day loss to the Spurs with their "A" game (if they still have one).
Thanks for the sig, Jr. Kobe.

either it will be a blowout loss or a blowout win..

usually whenever the Lakers back is against the wall, they have responded well so we will see...

but going by our current constitution, chances are higher we get crushed. We have lost all the big games all season. twice against the Cavs, in Orlando, twice vs. Denver, twice against Dallas...we will see.

I hope you're right. In fact, I would take any kind of a win at this point, even one that needs a Kobe buzzer-beater. The problem is that this is a road game, and the Lakers haven't done well away from home lately. Given the importance of this game, I expect Denver to give it their all, so LA will have to do so as well. Everyone on the team must step up for this one, especially the bench players.
Thanks for the sig, Jr. Kobe.

I think the outcome will be determined Wednesday. If Denver loses today, they will crush the Lakers.

If Denver wins in OKC (i think that's who they play)... the Lakers have a shot.

But OKC played last night in Utah and lost...so this should get dicey. Law of averages suggests that OKC bounces back and wins tonight against Denver, and then Denver smokes us... and then we bounce back against Minny...
Why do we fall? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up.

Three days between games is a bit long by NBA standards. OTOH, the team's getting more rest for their injuries, so that's a good thing. I just hope there's no carry-over from the Spurs loss and they don't start the game rusty. :man11:

I hope you're wrong. Of course I want the Lakers to win every game, but if they're going to lose one of the back-to-back games, I'd rather they do it against Minny than Denver, since the Thuggets will probably face the Lakers in the playoffs. But win or lose, I want the team to bring their "A" game tomorrow. If they do that, I'll be happy (and expect a win, naturally).
Thanks for the sig, Jr. Kobe.

Make JR Smith and Billups work hard on offense. :man8:
Those two make the team especially Melo function well.

I'm starting to get a good feeling about this game. I didn't know until today that the Nuggies would be playing the 2nd of a back-to-back in this one. Combine that with their win over OKC, and the fact that both K-Mart and Birdman aren't playing, and I now believe the Lakers will win. I'm counting on the loss to the Spurs to light a fire under their collective behinds. :ball1:

Denver, who is tired from beating the Thunder the night before, come out tired, and get down early.


lakers win.
100 people see fire.
99 start screaming and getting hysterical over all the smoke.
I start looking for the cause.

Concern yourselves with the Problems, not the Symptoms.

Lakers never blow anyone out

Either Denver blows us out..... or we win a close one

I'm leaning towards the later

Kobe goes 10/30, but we still somehow manage to win a close game...

Let's go. :jam2:

I say the other guys have a solid game, Kobe has a quite game on offense but in other areas has a big game and then we win a close one, sound reasonable? I hope we win!

Bynum suggesting he won't risk return before playoffs, calling it "another possibility to go back a couple steps."

Looks like Andrew Bynum (strained Achilles' tendon) won't return 'til April 18: "I'm going to play the first game of the playoffs," he said.
