I believe if the lakers can beat Oklahoma, maybe that closed door team meeting did something. However, the odds as much as I hate to admit are stacked against the lakers. If we can pull off a W I will say bravo, but will be crossing my fingers big time.

the only game Ron Artest is useful....he has always been able to keep Durantula in check...

but I'm expecting a free throw parade for the Thunder. They are way too fast and athletic for this team and they seem to get the benefit of the doubt every time we play them.

Kobe needs to defend Westbrook because Westbrick can easily score 35 on Fisher.

Kobe on Westbrook? It's either around 10 or 30+ for Russell :freak2:

I have an orientation to attend to so I'm not sure how much of the game I'll be able to see, but getting this W would be great for many reasons. For one it's OKC, and two it would be great to end the week before ASW with a W. :jam2:

Let's Do This!!! Taking two big road wins & only being 1/2 game down in the Pacific would be a huge moral boost for this team going into the All-Star break....

Last season before break they had some really embarrassing losses but started up again hot as a pistol winning a lot of games in a row. That's my recollection. Maybe the win last night is the start of something? If not I hope they minimize the damage somehow. Beatdowns really bum me out.

A win here would be HUGE. It would basically let the rest of the league know we're still as much a title threat as anybody.

Expectations vs reality I'm afraid.... I hope we put together a legitimate effort tonight. Kobe can't have two crap games in a row can he?...

I feel like Kobe HAS to play good for Lakers to win. Everyone else seems a little awake so its up to him to make his shots.

Kobe has to play good (no Sefalosha helps that), and Ron has to be effective against Durant. He also has to guard Westbrook.

Last time they played, Durant figured some things out against Ron. They set up quick release shots off screens for Durant who hit them before Ron could recover. Still, the margin for error on those shots is small and even Durant can't hit those all the time.
