it's because the lead ballooned to 9 in a matter of what seemed like seconds...

Let me preface by saying that I only saw a few fragments of the game.

BUt, it looked, again, like the W's were in the game, as they have been in just about every game this season, even in those early season losses. As much as I would have liked to see the team scrap it out in the 4th, the Lakers do seen to have the W's number. Just like with the Jazz, Nellie seems to get a bit flustered and off his own game (which contradicts what usually happens) when he comes against these legendary coaches. Both Sloan and Jackson have their systems and will not deviate (much) to match against Nellie's W's, and that's the difference in these games.

I think the X-factor in this game was Bynum. He abused us down low. However, I don't believe he will pan out to be a superstar or even as good as Biedrins. Tonight was his career high and he is getting consistent minutes. He could definitely be 14 and 10, but that's his height IMO.

Bynum's numbers...? 20 points, 11 boards, 5 swats. Odom also contributed his usual 3 categories (14 points, 10 boards, 6 dimes) to go along with a block and a steal.

Really, the Warriors' had an answer for Bynum... but, unfortunately, they didn't stick with it. Mbenga did a remarkable job pushing the kid off the block, but Nellie kept going back to Al and Andris and Bynum ended up with a big game. Tough break.

Mbenga has really impressed me the last two games. He seems to be calming down a little bit, not trying to do too much. The way he has been playing, I wouldnt mind him getting ten minutes a game, as long as he keeps up the play. I would keep him on an extremely short leash, though, and the minute he starts playing bad, I would yank him.
