The mighty Lakers, best team ever, 1-4. Been capping on them being favorites nearly every game.

On inside-oustide offense:
“In the half court yeah but coach tries to emphasize to really push in transition. We had a lot of transition buckets in the first half and that really sparked our offense to not just walk the ball up and run sets. We still have speed and talent on the wings to run. Our bigs run pretty hard too, we have to use that to our advantage when we get in the open court.”

maybe mark jackson is getting it at last.

The dubs have to bring their A game if they want to come out with a W. The Lakers are looking to right their ship and you can expect they will be playing hard. We need to get in the passing lanes and stop easy buckets.

Looking forward to Bogut and/or Ezli vs Howard....

I'm worried about this game.

Some guys are talking about the Lakers being 1-4 like that's an advantage. It's not. That team is going to the playoffs and they'll win more than 45 games once they put it all together. Kobe and Pau are career Warrior killers, Jamison always puts on against Golden State, Artest is a nasty guy for youngsters like Klay and Barnes to run into. With Bogut grounded and Ezeli still a bit naive, I dunno how well they'll be able to slow down Howard.

My heart says Dubs by 8, my head says Lakers by 5. Either way, expect DLee to stay hot for another week. The man bunches great games.

Without bogut, this is going to be a hard game to win. Ezli has the size and strength to battle Howard, but he lacks experience. We will probably see some Bedrins.... at least I would hope that over landry or lee guarding howard. Remember last year when Jackson did the hack a Howard strategy and he went to the line like 50 times....

I'm not opposed to that... Although, i think if Jackson still had that urge in him we'd have seen it on DeAndre Jordan in that close game against the Clipps...

Where'd you hear Bogut wasn't gonna play? I thought it was the Denver game he was going to miss...

I mean..how's he going to "strenghten" it and get it ready for game shape if he doesn't play at least at a limited level!

It's either play limited minutes for a while or play extended minutes when it is fully healthy. Those were the options laid out to him. He chose resting for ten days to be 100 percent instead of playing an X amount of games till healthy.

Well, I hope the 10 days WILL make him 100%..or else I'm going to be pissed. I know it's early in the season, but given that BOLD statement, it better be true!

Lots of nightmare matchups for us. Hope we're competitive enough for me to watch the game.

Vegas keeps upping the beat down on us, from LAL 4.5, to 6.5, and now 7.0

Its a good day for motherfuckers to lose some money, I'd say.
