We lost to them at home...

if the players have any sense of pride, they will react accordingly.

Dwight needs to play within himself and focused. Not get frustrated with grabs, hard fouls, and the crowd that will be killing him. Just do the dirty work and then amp it up in the 4th.

This is going to be such a tough game. Orlando is going to be playing like it's game 7 of the NBA finals because of all the Dwight drama. Kobe needs to be aggressive from the start, and dwight must control his emotions.

I don't envision them losing, but the last time we played a team like this we were down by 25. :man10:

I'm hopeful after that Chicago game we see them just stomp this team out. Dwight goes for a gentleman's 20/15/6 and Kobe goes for 30/11/5. Both of them shoot between 50 and 60% from the field.

Metta goes 0-12 from behind the line, but shuts down Afflalo.
Stu : "Yeah, that's an old fashioned whoopin'."

I'd love to see a 30-20 game from Dwight with a win.

QUICK PREVIEW
Lakers (33-31) at Magic (18-46)
7:00 PM EST

LAKERS
Won last 3
11-20 on the road
15-10 vs. East

PROBABLE STARTERS
Steve Nash 12.4 points, 6.8 assists, 2.8 rebounds
Kobe Bryant 27.7 points, 5.8 assists, 5.5 rebounds
Metta World Peace 12.6 points, 1.4 assists, 5.3 rebounds
Earl Clark 8.1 points, 1.2 assists, 6.2 rebounds
Dwight Howard 16.2 points, 1.4 assists, 12.3 rebounds

MAGIC
Won last 1
10-24 at home
10-15 vs. West

PROBABLE STARTERS
Jameer Nelson 14.6 points, 7.5 assists, 3.8 rebounds
Arron Afflalo 16.8 points, 3.3 assists, 3.8 rebounds
Tobias Harris 15.4 points, 1.4 assists, 6.6 rebounds
Maurice Harkless 6.3 points, 0.6 assists, 4.1 rebounds
Nikola Vucevic 12.3 points, 1.7 assists, 11.4 rebounds

PREDICTION
The Lakers have lost three of their last four against the Magic dating back to the 2010-11 season. They have not won a game in Orlando since winning the Championship in the 2008-09 season. Most of these losses have been by double digits. LA held the lead entering the fourth in the last meeting, but Orlando scored 40 points in the fourth to steal the game.

The Lakers will have to contend with Afflalo and Nelson (combined for 49 points last meeting), but Kobe and Dwight should be enough to give LA the win. I wouldn't be surprised to see Howard have a monster game, but LA's bench scoring is going to be key in this one.

Lakers 102
Magic 97

Why?

A W is a W, LA hasn't won in Orlando since the Finals in 08/09, and the line is between 6 and 10 right now.

So, I think it's unlikely and surely unnecessary.

^^ Very much agree with this. I think we need to go to Dwight early and often to establish him and get him in his groove. That said, if the passing lanes aren't there we need to go elsewhere. The worst scenario is when they force it and give the opponent a ton of early transition baskets. That digs a hole for us that is hard to crawl back out of.

Vaughn has been pretty clear today that this is an "ALL OUT MUST WIN" game -- for ownership, management, coaching, the players and the fans. This could be a buzz saw for us....
