The Warriors have been playing scrappy as hell the last couple games, too. Barnes, Harrington, and Mbenga have all been on the floor after balls.

The Warriors always seem to struggle vs the Lakers, but I love the way we've been playing on the road. I figure if Cap'n Jack can hold Kobe under 30 and we should be in good shape. I see a close game in the 1st half, but the Warriors having a great 3rd qtr and playing well enough to beat the Lakers in LA in the final qtr. Warriors by 4.

Lakers have our #. And they are at home. Lakers by 6. We'll get revenge when we play them at home.

6 point deficit going into the fourth. Nice to see some life in them, and nice to see Hudson make the shot, possibly getting hot at the end. Keep it up, and this game is ours to have.

Damn, this game is done.... they really need to stop turning the ball over. Jackson is an absolutely terrible dribbler. He is a great passer as long as he doesnt put the ball on the floor, but he turns it over again and again if he is trying to drive.

The Lakers are a talented team. Good role players all around Kobe. They also are a very beatable team, and in order for the Warriors to have success this year, in order to make a run in the playoffs, these are the games they need to win.

Make it 2-25 since 1994 against the Lakers. We held Kobe in check. But we let others do their thing to replace that.

Can anyone explain to me why POB started the second 1/2? 60-59 turned into 68-59 before Nellie came to his senses? Sometimes it just makes no sense...Mbenga actually looked very good, wonder why they didn't stick with him...

Missed the game. From the boxscore, seems like we couldn't stop any Laker, not only Kobe. If you allow 6 Lakers to score in double figures, you're probably losing that game... Also, we shot pretty bad, mostly from 3pt range. Not enough D and bad shooting is a lethal combination.

MBenga seems to be playing better lately. That's nice. I guess that's what Nellie was looking for when he signed. 7 points, 4 boards and 2 blocks is not a bad statline in just 14 minutes.

The team just can't beat the Lakers it seems. They need to move on. Good game by Mbenga and Pietrus in their limited minutes

Agreed, I'd wager that was O'Bryant's worst game as a Warrior. He simply didn't do ANYTHING right on the floor. Hopefully (along with Mbenga's impressive play the past 2 games), that means he'll be demoted to the inactive list and Brandan Wright will get some garbage tick as a backup 4.

As much as I trash the guy, I have to admit that Fitzgerald's patiented, "You have just been... MBENGA-ED!" is rapidly becoming my favorite game comment.
