riding a 7 game winning streak. On top Atlanta looks weak right now, just dominated by the so-so Knicks.

Actually EVERYTHING points out to a win, we haven't played really well in Atlanta the last few years either.

That being said, its still too early to believe the Lakers are back to their old self. I need more proof.

After we started the grammy trip 4-0 everyone thought we are back and a huge meltdown followed. If we keep the defense that we have been playing since the break, this should be an easy win.

After blowing out the Spurs on the road, this should not be a challenge for us. The main concern is complacency, but since we're fighting for #2 in the West, I don't think that will be a problem. Kobe will probably pass Moses Malone in this game, so let's hope he gets the milestone in a win by us. :jam2:
Thanks for the sig, Jr. Kobe.

It'll be closer this game, that's for sure. They aren't going to let the Lakers blow them out at home. I still think the Lakers win, but it'll be tough.

^2 keys IMO

1. Artest playing tight D on Johnson
2. Gasol taking advantage of Josh Smith on offense

if those 2 points happen, it will be an easy win...Bynum is way too big for Horford to handle, Atlanta has no one to throw at Kobe either...so its really just a question of the Lakers doing their jobs and executing.

i don't want to make predictions. everytime i make predictions or something on facebook or on this forum it seems like the lakers lose. i haven't made any predictions after the all star break so i am not about to start. i am just hoping the lakers show up for this game that's all.

may the best team win. :)

Bynum does need to keep Horford off the boards, but I'd just let him keep shooting 15-ft jumpers and prefer him out there than on the boards. I'd have Andrew sag off a bit and just make sure the paint is his.

ATL has a conundrum. Play Horford at the 4 and start Collins at the 5 which is just a welcome wagon for Drew to s*** all over your team, or put Horford back at the 5 and have Josh Smith at the 4 attempt to guard Pau Gasol.

Yes, it can be so simple continuing what they've been doing like entering a different part of the season... if they just all individually hit their season average on every stat they will win easily because the starters have the more dominant individual stats in the league.. it's all about concentration...

Getting the rebounds = win. It's that simple.

If we continue playing great defense and rebounding this should be a W. Plus Kobe will pass Moses Malone! :jam2:

Great offensive start by both teams. Whoever plays defense will win this game.
