Not a good feeling about this one. Our D was really bad for stretches during tonight's game, this team still has a lot of work to do on that end to become consistent.

We have same minds that think alike I saw some things tonight that reminded me of this team 2 weeks ago, leaving shooters wide open... and making poor decisions.... unless we keep Dragic and Gortat down tomorrow the Suns might blow us out.

They need to play freakin 48 minutes and not 24 minutes, they allowed a team like the Hornets to get back in it, they need to stay focused all 48 minutes. Other than that lets make it a streak.

QUICK PREVIEW
Lakers (20-25) at Suns (15-30)
10:30 PM EST

LAKERS
Won last 3
5-15 on the road
12-17 vs. West

PROBABLE STARTERS
Steve Nash 11.5 points, 8.0 assists, 2.4 rebounds
Kobe Bryant 28.4 points, 5.3 assists, 5.1 rebounds
Metta World Peace 13.4 points, 1.5 assists, 5.6 rebounds
Earl Clark 6.6 points, 1.1 assists, 5.3 rebounds
Dwight Howard 16.7 points, 1.6 assists, 11.8 rebounds

SUNS
Lost last 2
11-11 at home
8-15 vs. West

PROBABLE STARTERS
Goran Dragic 14.2 points, 6.4 assists, 2.8 rebounds
Jared Dudley 12.0 points, 2.8 assists, 3.6 rebounds
P.J. Tucker 5.2 points, 1.2 assists, 3.7 rebounds
Luis Scola 13.2 points, 2.5 assists, 6.4 rebounds
Marcin Gortat 11.5 points, 1.3 assists, 8.9 rebounds

PREDICTION
On November 16th, the Lakers handily defeated the Suns thanks to 31 from Kobe and eight threes on 21 attempts. The Lakers did not have Steve Nash at that point. With the full complement of tools available, the Lakers should win a very competitive game.

The numbers are close to a push here, largely because the Lakers are horrendous on the road, and this three-game winning streak is really quite surprising. Jared Dudley has had some good games against the Lakers, and Goran Dragic can cause problems for LA PGs. But watch for the difference to be what happens with Phoenix's bench. If those folk struggle the Lakers could cruise.

Lakers 101
Suns 100

This road trip will show whether or not the team has turned the corner. Recall a couple seasons ago they caught fire around the All Star break and won a title. Let's hope this is the start of a great road trip.

Do you even listen to yourselves? Dragic and Gortat? What are they, the new Parker and Duncan?

The only way we might loose this game is refs and missed FTs. Come on. People act like we are that bad of a team. We are not. We only have had our starters together for what? 14 games?

I am very curious to see how this "new" Lakers team comes out when teams start to expect and anticipate Kobe passing instead of shooting and how they handle that.

Turned on the game to see the bald head of Joey Crawford the most famous ref in the world :bang:
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.
