I hear Gasol is going to be out until at least April 1st. If this much is true, we need to take advantage of the situation and come out strong. Dubs should be fired up from this loss, but they will also be tired since our starters played the majority of the game against Houston. I got all the faith in the world in the Dubs. Just hope they have enough energy to tough it out for their next back to back. BEAT LA!

I think we really need 1 of 2 from this back-to-back. And I wouldn't be surprised if it came on the road.

BWright will not be seeing PT for awhile because of his performance vs. LAC. The lead diminished when he went in, and Nelson is going to use this as an excuse to not play him.

we needa take charge of the tempo and how these next two games go. they are without both gasol and bynum. if we win these laker fans will say "oh gasol and bynum were injured"...if we lose then they have more reason to brag. either way we will lose the bragging battle to their fans...but winning these two games is probably the most important task of the season.

Indeed -_-. It's like the whole thing with fighting against a girl... you win, you're a douchebag. You lose, you're a weakling. Sigh, my friends are going to give me excuses if the Warriors win.

If we win both these laker games, I will probably shed a tear....that being said I really would love to see them beat the Lakers at Staples just so they know they can get a win there in case we do meet them in the first round of the playoffs.
I have seen the 49ers win a Superbowl. I have now seen the Giants win a world series. I need one more championship in my lifetime to make my life complete...

I've missed the last week of Dubs games (of NBA games, actually), so I'm not really sure about the outcome of this one.

Let's say... Dubs by 4 in OT.

I would take a 1 game win out of a back to back with the Fakers, but there is no indication that we would play well against a well coached deep squad for two games. 1st. Kobe is the league MVP, part of which is playing hard in every game (something that our team leaders BD and Jackson will never be accused of) 2. Against inferior opponents the Lakers like to run up the score, the Warriors like to coast (throw in jumper, dump no look passes, play solo ball, shoot the low percentage shot) 3. Finally, without their two bigs (Bynum and Gasol) there is no big talent advantage for either team because last time I checked, of the teams in the Western conference 1-9 are all good enough to beat up on each other 4. Finally, the entire Laker squad has played the year with a big chip on their shoulder (the Kobe off-season call out, the Shaq winning a championship, last years playoff failure), the Warrior have coasted for the most part playing well only when needed (dismal no excuse losses to Hornet, Bulls, Timberwolves with a talented Nuggets over .600 team yapping at our heels) A true championship team would stick it to a faltering Rockets squad and an undermanned Faker squad, but I have yet to see that killer instinct in our current squad.
