I believe this will be one hell of a game as both teams are fighting for the 8th spot.

They don't scare me. The biggest obstacle between us and victory in this game is ourselves. They have good players, a great one in Dirk, but we should be able to beat them if our guys play with effort, comunicate on D, and make the shots they have the ability to make.

The gravity of this game is incredible. Truly a must-win. Let's get back to how we were playing about a month ago!

QUICK PREVIEW
Lakers (38-36) vs. Mavericks (36-37)
10:30 PM EST

LAKERS
Won last 1
23-12 at home
21-23 vs. West

PROBABLE STARTERS
Steve Blake 6.1 points, 3.8 assists, 2.4 rebounds
Jodie Meeks 8.1 points, 0.8 assists, 2.1 rebounds
Kobe Bryant 27.1 points, 5.9 assists, 5.4 rebounds
Pau Gasol 13.0 points, 3.6 assists, 7.9 rebounds
Dwight Howard 16.6 points, 1.4 assists, 12.7 rebounds

MAVERICKS
Won last 1
14-22 on the road
19-24 vs. West

PROBABLE STARTERS
Mike James 5.9 points, 3.0 assists, 1.5 rebounds
O.J. Mayo 16.1 points, 4.4 assists, 3.6 rebounds
Shawn Marion 11.5 points, 2.4 assists, 7.8 rebounds
Dirk Nowitzki 17.4 points, 2.4 assists, 6.9 rebounds
Elton Brand 7.6 points, 1.0 assists, 6.1 rebounds

PREDICTION
Nash is out, so Steve Blake draws the start. While Blake hasn't had much success against the Mavs, Jodie Meeks, who will be starting at SG in all likelihood, has scored in double digits off the bench twice this season against the Mavs. Kobe has shot the ball incredibly well against Dallas (30-45 on FGs, 26.3 PPG). LA is going to need plenty of that in order to hold off the Mavs.

Both teams' backs are against the wall. If Dallas loses, they'll be 2.5 games out of 8th and their season might be over; if LA loses, they'll slip to a full game behind Utah. I think the Lakers take this game, and they might win it at the FT line. The two teams have combined to shoot 62% (95-153) on FTs in the three meetings.

Lakers 104
Mavericks 100

Huge game. I actually think we put it together tonight and dominate. The key is going to be Dwight getting Dallas into foul trouble, Meeks being able to hit the open shots, guys moving when Kobe has the ball and attacking the boards on both ends.

Clearly the biggest game of the season to date. I really hope that Staples Center will be rocking and rolling with a playoff type atmosphere.

Kobe shooting on Mavs hoop. Vince Carter comes out. KB keeps shooting. Carter waits few mins until Kobe finishes then they pound fists.


Respect. (Two guys who have been in the league a long time)

Marion, Dirk and Brand are not slouches. They could have season games. It's more likely Lakers will play at a high level but only the 1st Q will tell us. This team is unpredictable now that we're missing Metta. Just don't let Darren Collison go nuts. He was Westbrook and Love's teammates at UCLA.

I'm glad that game will be on both TWC SportsNet and TNT. Don't have to worry about Heat-knicks game OT

This is a W. Maybe it will be a close game, but I am convinced we'll win it. Our guys know what's up. Have to win most of our games now, if not all of them.
