Home game so has to be a win! The team must win basically all their remaining home games if they continue to struggle on the road.

I expect Kobe to go crazy on the Ws and random heroics from the Lakers bench. Blowout city. Lakeshow by 10+.

I don't know what to think of this game. The Fakers have our number... but it's a home game, so it should be close.

Ws by 3.

btw, it's about time S-Jax goes to the bench and J-Rich gets back his starting spot...

I finally get to see Jrich healthy and Kobe playing on the same court at the Oracle. We've only won one back-to-back all season. But we're freakin' sav's at home. Hmmm....

Defend our territory! Let's do this Warriors! W's by.... 6.

I don't. I want some more scoring coming from the bench. That doesn't mean that Pietrus has to play more minutes, quite the opposite...

Let Jax play the 3... he's 6'8. He plays better D and is more offensively polished than Pietrus. And taller. Why keep Pietrus in?

i agree the last two games pietrus has had what? like a total of 7 or 10 points or something? thats not enough production for a starting player!! i'll be the first to admit i used to love pietrus for his energy and swagger, but now it seems like he has his feet stuck in cement, he hasnt really gotten much better. his #'s prove otherwise but thats because nelson has a noose around his neck. he'd be fine as a role player, because he's too inconsistent to be a starter. never the less, he's a tweener, let him walk at the end of this year. lord knows we have enough of these guys. our next goal should be to draft a TRUE PF or a TRUE SF!!! and i think we'll be fine, nelson will find somebody good.

as far as todays game goes, i think its a very important game. im looking at it as trying to go 2-1 after the break, with baron coming back pretty soon and being a healthy team. i dont think .500 is going to cut it, so we need to streak like 7 or 8 out of 10 , then play .500 and then we should be in pretty good shape for the rest of the year.

a great big ??? Kobe is a Ws killer (not that this makes us any different) but the lakers are playing even worse than the ws lately, and we need this game more. Some W needs a 30 point game (Jax, Harrington, Jrich?) and we need to hold the Lakers to a 5 board margin. All that said, like a true fan, Ws by 5

I think J-Rich will get pumped up by the matchup against Kobe and go almost eye-for-eye.
