Kobe will score 55 pts...

Lakers: 108
Warriors: 97

I see a Warrior losing their cool in frustration and getting ejection.

More finger pointing will happen and this will be on the brink of implosion. :banghead:
This season is not a flop.

I hope Pietrus is active for this game and gets good playing time, because the Warriors will need him for this game.

Pietrus plays, we win

He doesn't. we lose

He's the only one who can keep Kobe in check.

Kobe will probably dominate JRich. I don't see any way JRich can defend Kobe or even slow him down. Kobe has the complete game (offensive & defense) to shut down JRich.

I don't understand it. JRich is such a superb athlete. Why won't he play tough defense? Do you think his press clippings have gone to his head? If he really wants to be considered as a legit All-Star, he has to start playing some defense to gain respect.

The Lakers team as a whole is beatable, however. I think it's a tribute to Phil that they are even in playoff contention with their team.

My guesses:

JRich will be shut down offensively and Kobe will score at will. The real game will be between the remaining four on each team.

Troy should be able to handle Kwame quite easily. Kwame can only score inside, though, so Troy will have to come in off of his beloved perimeter.

BD should be able to dominate Smush easily.

Lamar-Mike D.? Good question.

I look for Ike to score pretty easily inside.

Overall? Unfortunately, based on the GSW lack of committment to NBA-level team defense, I just don't see us controlling Kobe. I predict he takes over the game and the Lakers win easily.

Murphy is getting schooled by Freakin sucky ass Chris Mimm!!?? Our interior D is making him and Big time Bust, Kwame Brown look like damned all stars!

It looks like they have completely given up even trying to play defense! :banghead:

The only positive I have taken out of this game so far is the fact that Greg Pappa is calling the game down here with Stu Lance. Its nice to hear a familiar voice...
This season is not a flop.
