I doubt Shaq plays, but if he does it's a W. If not, still a W, but a much closer game like last time.

I wouldn't be surprised if this game becomes really close in the dying minutes, since Allen always come up awesome performances against us. But then again, I wouldn't be surprised if we manage to beat the Sonics by at least 10 in this game, should Shaq play along with Kobe and Payton. :)

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 28 (Ticker) -- Shaquille O'Neal may return for the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday when they host the Seattle SuperSonics at STAPLES Center.

O'Neal has not played since straining his right calf in a 111-109 loss at Seattle on Jan. 2. The All-Star center was cleared to practice on Tuesday

Shaq's Back? Big Man Might Return Tonight

This is a tough game for the Sonics. We played a big game last night, so we might be a little sluggish for this game. Also, Barry broke his finger so he won't play.

If Shaq plays, I think we lose. If he doesn't, we will make it close. :yes:

Shaq daddy is playing. Lakers struggling 16-3 but as I say that Shaq hammers down a two hand dunk.

Im predicting a win by the Lakers tonight... The Lakers are known to start off a little slow and then make a big run, and once they make it, they never let it up...

Can the Sonics hold onto the ball...jesus...:laugh:

And on a different note...

I was horrified as i was watching the Laker Sonics game... Paul Sunderland, is starting to take after Stu... He said and i quote" Horace Grant said wait a minute little fella, thats my ball" Now, that was sounded EXACTLY like Stu, if Paul takes up Stus ways...ouch...:laugh:

Yea, Sonics played horrible in the 4th. Horace Grant played well. They seemed pretty strict with Shaq, he played exactly 9 minutes each half. Payton also played a very solid game, shot 11-16 from the field. Rick Fox looked terrible, he has a long ways to go.

The fatigue got to the Sonics in the end, but great job by the second unit. Good times ahead for Laker fans, but looks like we wont be getting Malone til the end of March.:(
