Game #66 Sonics @ Lakers

Sorry B.Cook didn't know till i posted this that u had already made a game thread!


THE DOOR IS SLOWLY CLOSING




SuperSonics (44-20)

The SuperSonics have struggled lately, losing five of 10. Forward Vladimir Radmanovic, their third-leading scorer and a prolific three-point shooter, is out at least four weeks because of a stress fracture in his right leg.



Los Angeles Lakers (32-33)

The Lakers are 0-2 versus The Supersonics this season and are trying to snap a 4 game losing streak. Los Angeles is tied for ninth in the Western playoff race with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

"Most teams who are trying to make a playoff run right now are at least putting together little runs," said Laker forward Brian Grant, an 11-year veteran who has been on six playoff teams. "We're on a four-game losing streak. We still have opportunity … but we've got to start playing like a team who's desperate. Too many more losses and we can forget about it."




We could win this one ... :biggrin: you never know!!!

I see a big game by Kobe. But if that is to happen he has to go to the post.

On our way to another loss again, down by 4. When the **** was the last time we led in the 2nd Q?

The last bucket by Lewis epitomized our whole season.....no effort and pathetic.

We get screwed more than any team in the league by far.

Atkins' shot was blatantly goaltended and then Jones got blatantly fouled at the end of the half with no call. NBA refs are embarrassingly horrible and they all need to be fired.

Kobe's play makes me want to vomit.

I don't understand this at all. This is a completely different team than a week ago. They miss all their layups and have no confidence whatsoever. My prediction for the remainder of this season honestly is 3-14, maybe worse. 35-47 is how we'll finish the year...you can book it.

The team is tanking it. Its obvious, sorry, you don't go from playing so well, and then suddenly being this terrible. Kobe has reverted back to being a guy who isolates and takes too many 3s, the offense is colder than Siberia, and they don't even look like they're putting an effort on defense anymore.
