I could see Sasha having a big night and bringing us to the win...

Now let's just hope that's more than seeing and actually true :biggrin:

My predictions:
Lakers win this, 111-109 in OT.
Kobe- 38pts, 6 reb, 8 assists.
Tmac- 30pts, 8 reb, 5 assists
Yao- 18pts, 10 reb, 3 assists (Grant is able to stop him early, he eventually starts playing pretty good, fouls out in OT)

Pfft...we have to wait for the stupid Mavs/Spurs to finish. Whenever the game is only on TNT, the game before it ALWAYS takes too long and we miss the start of our game. :curse:

Oh well, at least it's baseball season, so I can watch the Angels until it starts. :clap:

Rockets just dominated the Lakers that half but once again this team hangs around trailing by just 9 (60-51) at halftime!
