Second game in a row with the Lakers throwing cheap shots. They look desparate.

The difference is how they are officiated, not that you don't ever have cheap shots now. Before guy's would get a technical foul for that play, and sometimes were only hit with a personal foul. Now a days it's a flagrant 2, and more than likely a suspension.

Wrong timing for him. But I applaud him. The Lakers need to understand physicality is going to be a necessary element of the game to win it all this year. Again, it was at a wrong time and he expressed himself differently, I could'nt hate him for that. Fish is one of the classiest player on and off the court. I dont think he's that dumb. He was clearly sending a message.

LMAO no no no no no no....


See this was a desperation comment


90's defense was NOT based on elbowing players in the head. But if you are willing to deliberately twist the idea of "hard defense" to flat out thugging, then I guess it's your right to do so.


And if you want to put it THAT way



Elbowing one time in the whole game is really weak. They should be doing it more often - like in the 90s.


One elbow per game? Weak sauce...

Even if it doesn't, he should be suspended. He did it intentionally

Hopefully the Rockets can establish Yao Ming in the 4th quarter.

Really? I could've sworn those Knicks- Bulls, Pacers-Knicks, Heat-Knicks series all had worst cheap shots than what Derek laid tonight.

Wait, so the only the wrong with what Fisher did was the timing? You condone attempting to physicall hurt the opponent?

Moving screen on Bynum. They'd been calling it on Houston all night.
