Loss.

Even if Howard and Gasol and Hill were healthy, loss.

This team, for whatever reasons, just doesn't play well together.

I'm actually looking forward to this game. Wonder how many Kobe is going to shoot with no post player to feed.

I see this as being a Lakers loss only because Robert Sacre, at least it looks like he is a fun guy, has nothing to offer aside from personality.

Kobe will probably go for like 45 points shooting 16/39.

But hey I am rooting for the Lakers so I am praying that Jamison and Sacre hold it down while Metta, and Kobe beast. Of course if there is a win tonight Meeks has got to be on fire.

THE BIG DIPPER WILD PREDICTION: STEVE NASH 16 ASSISTS, 24 POINTS, AND 7 REBOUNDS.

Could totally see a blow out loss or a really convincing win. Like Jace said, the NBA is really weird with injuries, especially in the regular season. I feel like it actually helps in small doses because the rest of the guys feel obligated and go 150% as opposed to coasting due to a ridiculously long schedule.

Good start. Nice energy from the team. Jamison needs to step it up these next few games.

Lakers close it out 16-24 to lead by 6 at the end of 1, 34-28.

Jamison is shooting horribly; Darius Morris is on early, with some nice swishes from outside.

Nice job there Nash. He needs to be more aggressive with Pau/Dwight out.

We need to get better on D in the 2nd half. Giving up too many easy layups. When's the last time anyone took a charge??
