Automatic loss tomorrow night. Lakers can't expect to beat a much better fast break team than the Nuggets. Lakers way too tired too night...Oh well, at least we have a 5 game home stand after this horrible road trip.

Word..I feel you bro! I think everyone feels the same as a fan, you just overreacted when Cook was still in the becnh and luke took the final shot instead .LoL

Dont worry.. Tim Thomas will go off for 40/20 on Cook or something.. :laugh:

I seriously think the Lakers should take Cook outta the starting lineup.. he hasnt produced for like 2 months now.. he's fell off..

He probably won't be since we're playing the Suns. Get ready for some classic retard Phil lineups tomorrow. Back to back against Phoenix? No way. Kobe shoots 11/38. They will get around twenty alley oops because our bigs, namely Kwame, will be lost. Phil will match up Luke against Marion. It's going to get ugly.

Suns for the last two weeks are a team that is mentally fatigued. Seems like every night lately they've been playing as if it were the fourth game in four days or something. I think they've packed it in as far as not being able to play defense, but now their offense has struggled too. Guys are not moving without the ball to get open for Nash. They stand at the three point line and wait for things to happen. Diaw isn't rolling to the basket as much on the pick-and-rolls. Things just haven't gone well.

I hope the Suns regain it, but if not, L.A. might have more of a chance than you'd think. If it's the old Suns though, I'd wager not. :)

All of this lessens are chance of winning. We are the official "slump killers" of the league.

I think we should run a few plays for smush early, going up a against steve nash. he couldn't get a flow last night because he didn't have many opportunities early. It's kind of hard to come in ice cold after sitting for an hour and be expected to make a jumpshot. Smush can do well in this game; he also didn't play a whole lot last night.

Phil also can't let phoenix gain too much momentum. I'm actually a fan of his "let them play through it" attitude when we are losing a lead, or if momentum is shifting. But when the other team is building an insermountable (sp) lead, phil needs re-group. I'm going to pull my hair out if the suns go on like a 15-0 run and phil sits quietly on his chair.

Suns by 10. Not trying to be negitive, but I think the game would be a little closer but I have a feeling Phil is going to experiment a little tonight just to get an idea of a battle plan for the likely event of a Suns Lakers match up in the playoffs.
