Lakers are saving energy for the finals.

Well, hopefully it doesn't take too much energy to beat the Spurs. I'm guessing it will take a bit and the Lakers will put out that energy and nothing more. Another blowout win, starters resting in the 4th QTR.

88 - 120
Buckle up! This off season is going to be some ride...

If anyone in silver and black could use a positive outcome against the two-time defending champions, however, it is Duncan.

Repeatedly flummoxed by the Lakers’ twin 7-footers, Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol, Duncan has scored a total of just 12 points on 5-of-26 shooting in three games against the Lakers this season.

“They clog it up inside,” Duncan said. “They do a good job challenging shots. With their length, they can do that.”

Duncan’s struggles against the Lakers could come into play if the teams meet in the playoffs. So far, there has been no direct correlation between his statistical line and the Spurs’ fortunes against L.A.

Twice, Duncan has turned in identical two-point, 1-for-7 performances. The Spurs won the first game 97-82 on Dec. 28 and lost the second 99-83 on March 6.

For now, Duncan remains more focused on rounding into playoff shape after missing five games since late March, four of them with a sprained left ankle. In six games since his return, Duncan — who acknowledges the ankle is still not 100 percent — has averaged 15 points and 7.8 rebounds.

“I expect Timmy to play at his best once the playoffs come,” point guard Tony Parker said. “He’s always done it. I don’t see why it would be different.”

When we blew them out in SA during our 17-1 run after the AS break, Drew was beasting, and our defense was pretty good, to the point that we were actually running their shooters off the 3-point line. If those things happen tonight, I think we'll win. Now that Steve is out with the chicken pox, I hope Trey Johnson gets in the game and helps us win, and maybe even joins the playoff roster. :jam2:
Thanks for the sig, Jr. Kobe.

This is the biggest regular season game. It's a good indicate of Western seedings, which are very tight.

It makes sense that the Western teams are close to each other in the standings, but it's still a crazy situation. All of them are bunched together except for #1 (Spurs) and #5 (Nuggets).
Thanks for the sig, Jr. Kobe.

Lakers better start winning or they could possibly end up the 4 seed... Can't imagine Spurs wanting to put up a fuss tonight having clinched so we might get a win!

It ends tonight. Lakers are going to get that victory. I dont care if the Spurs play their starters or not, a victory tonight puts us in the right direction heading into the playoffs.

Prediction: 97 - 90 Lakers baby. :jam2:

Can you guys do anything to free you up off of him or make some adjustments for next game?

Looks like no Duncan, Parker and Ginobli.

Lakers better not think they don't have to play hard now.

We better not lose this one, because the Spurs are resting everyone who matters.

If Pau and Bynum both dont have 20 and 15 vs. this front court. Its a travesty.

I have been beyond frustrated with the Lakers lately -- starting with the game in Utah, despite the comeback.

I have also been predicting the outcome of these games on page one of each thread. Then turning the game off by the half, usualy.

This one?? I have no idea. I expect a statement type game. But then again, I see lots of problems with this team, beyond effort.

No clue. No predictions. Just hope they win. Keep the TOs down. and hope Kobe plays facilitator and PLAYS DEFENSE!!!
