Sorry for the late update, losing to the Hawks can put me in a depression state for 24 hours.

Lakers need to win this won... it's going to be a dogfight. Come on boys, I still have faith in you...

The duo of Kidd and Carter will really put pressure on the Lakers' backcourt, especially on the fast break. Butler and Jones may find it difficult to hold Carter thoughout the game, because we know Sasha won't see any playing time as long as VC is holding onto the ball. Odom and Co. need to protect the paint at all times, and be careful not to allow Kidd to rack up too many easy assists for Carter, slashing his way to the hoop. The Lakers' defense has been weak against penetrations...so Kidd and Carter will definitely be huge factors for the Nets, if they want to pull off a win tonight in Jersey.

The Lakers are leading the league in rebounds (well...since last week anyways). Surprising? Not really...and with New Jersey's depleted frontcourt, the Lakers should win this battle on the glass pretty easily. Krstic will fight Mihm on the boards, just like he did against Yao in the Olympics...but as long as Chris uses his upper body strength and puts a few bruises on Nenad to gain position, he'll pull down boards all night.

LA needs to take advantage of the mismatch at the two forwards slots. Odom can pull Collins away from the rim and use his speed to attack the basket and draw the foul, and Butler could notch 20+ tonight against Vaughn...well...that is, if the Nets stick Carter on Jumaine Jones, who should try and get Carter in foul trouble, rather than spot up for threes.

This brings me to my biggest factor in the game: the three point shot. How big? Well, the Lakers seem to drool over a nice, clear look at the basket...rather than the open three...correct? Nah...they'd take the three...and that's where this could be a mistake in the game. We know Kidd's defense isn't the same since knee surgery, so Atkins and Tierre (sorry Bobbitt...we probably won't be seeing you ever) should take advantage of Kidd's weak side and penetrate the Nets' defense a little. I expect to see Chucky jacking up threes instead, but it would be nice if he did the most logical thing...to drive, penetrate and create (sounds like what a PG should do).

Image
The Lakers will blow a lead in the 4th, but will fight back to win this one by only two points (thanks to a three by Atkins), 89-87.

There is no reason why we should win. I think we go 0-5 for this trip :man6: Everyone who believes we will win is a dreamer and NOT realistic.

Tough D :man3: Thats a word LA doesn´t have in his vocabulary. We can win BUT if we win IT IS a surprise. I´m not trusting our B,C,Z,Y? or what ever it is because it is not D.

Mihm has his moments on defense and most of the time the rest of the team follows him on that. but some has to take the lead.

The problem is Mihm is not playing much.

I cant see the Lakers winning tonight. If they beat us with eight players. What makes us think we got a shot at winning in NJ. I want them to win no doubt but I am being realistic. Look what VC did to the Pistons and the Sixers they are not to be taken lightly.. I see VC scoring about 40-50 pts.. I think we fall to 0-5 on this trip god I hope I am wrong!
Officially done with ClubLakers. Its too much of a freaking circus for my taste. I wont ever be back and all of you can shove it.

No matter how many times a certain person sends me a message I am done so keep begging I am not coming back you know who you are!

Vince is going for 40+ tonight.

This is going to be a tough game for the Lakers. We really need to try to win this one. This road trip has been full of heartbreaks thus far. Hopefully tonight... on the road, we can change that around.

Lakers will lose to

Nets
Pistons
Cavs
Utah

making it a 7 game losing streak. Or maybe more. But I can't see them losing to Portland. Never know though.

Enough of this "we lost to the worst team in the league now we can't beat anybody" nonsense. That's just irrational. The Mavs lost to them, so according to this logic, the Mavs shouldn't beat anyone either.

In 2000 we had a 19 game win streak killed by the wizards who at the time were 20-45. Were people saying, "screw me, the lakers suck!"

Get it together people
I bleed purple and sweat gold, don't ever question that.

The problem is dallas and those lakers were actually a good team to begin with. That Atlanta loss just proved how much bad we really are.
