Wish we could put a team away because this is a game we really need to end quickly so the starters (especially Kobe) can get rest and save their legs for the trainwreck of a game against Portland that will be awaiting us.

If there is ever a game that we need to win and rest our starters its this game. with some many games coming up in a short period of time its critical we get some rest.

This. Not only do we need the win, but we should be able to buy our starters (mainly Kobe) some rest.

Need to blow em out and rest the starters in the 4th quarter, but we will probably blow a double digit lead and need Kobe to save us in the end again.

QUICK PREVIEW
Lakers (40-37) vs. Hornets (27-50)
10:30 PM EST

LAKERS
Lost last 1
25-12 at home
23-24 vs. West

PROBABLE STARTERS
Steve Blake 6.3 points, 3.7 assists, 2.6 rebounds
Jodie Meeks 8.0 points, 0.8 assists, 2.2 rebounds
Kobe Bryant 27.0 points, 6.1 assists, 5.5 rebounds
Pau Gasol 13.1 points, 3.7 assists, 8.1 rebounds
Dwight Howard 16.7 points, 1.4 assists, 12.5 rebounds

HORNETS
Won last 1
11-27 on the road
15-23 vs. West

PROBABLE STARTERS
Greivis Vasquez 14.1 points, 9.2 assists, 4.4 rebounds
Eric Gordon 16.5 points, 3.2 assists, 1.7 rebounds
Al-Farouq Aminu 7.2 points, 1.3 assists, 7.6 rebounds
Anthony Davis 13.5 points, 1.0 assists, 8.0 rebounds
Robin Lopez 11.1 points, 0.8 assists, 5.4 rebounds

PREDICTION
Kobe has averaged 28.3 points, 9.0 assists, and 7.0 rebounds int eh season series vs. the Hornets. Dwight Howard has contributed 20.7 and 9.0 rebounds, while Meeks and Jamison have contributed double figure averages off the bench. LA has hit an average of 12 threes per game against New Orleans. Most of the damage from New Orleans has come from Vasquez (15.3-12.0-5.0), Gordon (43 points in two games), and Ryan Anderson (20.3 points, 7.0 boards).

It's win-or-go-home time in LA. Even one loss in the final five games of the season would make it quite difficult for the Lakers to claim the 8th and final playoff seed. They are at home, and they'll see the return of Metta World Peace, so I think they will hold on for a convincing win.
Lakers 98

Howard should make quick work of Lopez again. Game.

The big concern is Kobe and his minutes. The last thing we want to see is a stress injury putting him on the bench. If he doesn't get any help tonight the chances increase.

What was with all the guys running out cheering and whopping it up :freak2:
I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.

Blake can't make an entry pass and it's embarrassing to be in the NBA and not be able to do that.
