@SherwoodStrauss This game atmosphere could only get weirder if the crowd started chanting, "BEAT L.A.!"
Hopefully this happens in a potential series.

Re: Game #32: Lakers (15-16) @ Clippers (25-8)

My best takeaway from the game is late in the 4th, Dwight is on the side talking to Nash, telling him some secrets, letting him know what he should do next to win the game.


Haha......


Wow Dwight absolutely ****ed your team. Like in a mean I want this to hurt for days type of way. You guys are ****ed. Enjoy trading Gasol for some type of garbage and losing even harder.



Oh, by the way, your announcers are already silver lining this game as an emotional win for the team. You guys really scrapped out there. Keep that up next game and you might win.

Every team should do it every game until he does something about it. Pure and simple
They should force him to go to Rick Barry. I know he's loopy, but it would work and that's a lot of money they're paying.

That's really debatable at this point. If the Lakers were the Lakers and winning, its just lovable homerism.


If the Lakers stink and lose more games than they win, and your announcers are calling the refs cheats for looking at a replay because it shows they were in the wrong, then call a game they just lost a win for the team, its pretty sad.

It's a nifty tactic but it doesn't mean it's not cheap.

Its not only fair, its smart.

If you know a guy can't shoot, you sag off. Like people used to do to Rondo. He learned to have at least a semi respectable shooting game to make defenses have to keep honest.


It really ****s the Lakers, because the first time in the crunch someone sends Dwight to the line, you can never give him the ball again on a set play, because you know its sending him to the line and chances are hes ****ing you. So it completely takes him out of the game on offense. If hes too busy smiling and not paying attention to learn how to shoot a free throw, that's on him.

I don't even know what to do with Pau anymore. He was horrendously bad. The loss was not all his fault of course as Meeks and Metta played like garbage as well, but my gosh Pau was dreadful.

Dwight will get the free throws down in clutch time, I am not concerned about that.

What I am concerned about is this team's mental state.

As in...

WHY THE **** COULDN'T THEY GIVE THIS KIND OF EFFORT IN THE PHILLY GAME?!?

THAT'S the problem, guys. EFFORT. If they gave this kind of effort in the Philly game, the Orlando game, the Dallas game, the Utah game, the Denver game, etc.

Why is that going to change all the sudden?

He missed two, but then he got the last two. They only intentionally fouled him twice.

I am more concerned about the EFFORT. I don't understand why this game, this particular game, is more important than the Philly game, the Orlando game. They all count as one game in the standings. Finally, they give effort against arguably the best team in the league and fall just short.

To me, that means wins against Philly and Orlando (and others), and it translates into a winning record, not a losing one.

That was the most tense arena I've ever been in. I swear there was almost a brawl 6 feet to the left of me in the final 3 minutes.

Pau is unwatchable. Is he a bad player? No. But he's just a taller diaw. His body language is just pathetic in person. His confidence and athleticism are both shot.

By the way, Kobe flat out shut out cp3 in the 4th. I was very impressed.

I missed most of the game, but on the replay on now I just saw CP hit a smooth 20-footer on KB to end the half. Live I saw him do something similar for the dagger. I'm sure those felt good with Kobe defending him.
