I'm hoping that the Hawks win and apparently our bench never got the memo that they need to bring their game with them on the plane for a road trip. They need to find themselves; some more than others.

****, ****, ****, ****, ****!

Oh. My. God.

The Bench is starting to piss me the hell off now...they are costing us ****ing games. It's absolutely pathetic that Pau and Kobe were the only contributors of the Lakers tonight, absolutely ****ing pathetic.

The silly ****ing turnovers, the silly fouls, the lack of hustle. I could go on and on about the bench and their lack of contribution this entire game too. Trevor Ariza was the only one to truly step it up for the bench and god bless him for it.

The silly fouls, the silly turnovers and the lack of a bench impact cost us this game. And it's a team without their ****ing general Nash to boot? ... unacceptable.

But **** it. We still have the best record and hopefully we learn from this loss. It's a loss I can swallow but it'll be tough going down.

Hopefully the cavs lose tonight and give us a free pass on this completely winnable game.

Oh yeah and Kobe Bryant is a God amongst men. I almost feel like I should have to pay to see this man play on tv sometimes, he's that damn good.

Yea we could have played better, but is it me or are the refs targetting odom the past 2 games, it was just pathetic, everytime he checked into the game he got called for a stupid foul, especially that offensive foul they called on him. Oh and shaq was running through our players and was getting calls in his favor. after 47 [expletive]ing minutes the refs finally [expletive]ing realized that hey shaq is running over gasol lets call this offensive foul, it's not like the lakers are going to win. pathetic officiating. call me a whiner call me whatever you want i don't care i just call it like i see it.

No need to panic guys, Phoenix played very well tonight.

They had plenty of reasons to come out with this motivation, we beat them three times this season already they didn't want to get swept for the season series.
Same thing for the Boston and Detroit game. The Pistons didn't want to get swept for the season series.

48-12 NBA Best STILL and were coming home to Staples Center to play the Grizzlies and Wolves.

We still gotta alot of reasons to hold our heads up high fellas. Let's move on.

I did feel bad for the Lamar and whenever he had to sit out, the momentum of the game changed. But the best thing he can do is not let it get to him mentally and not say anything. If he keeps talking to the refs they will then start giving him technicals. So it's a slippery slope. But this is a game that we should have won.

I hate when Lakers fans blame games on the refs but I will admit they sure as hell weren't favoring us tonight. Shaq was getting away with a lot of stuff and Odom just couldn't catch a break. That being said we still had numerous opportunities to take over this game and we didn't. Plain and simple.

what did he do today exactly

i think you are defending him out of habit


I can give you the stats and then you'll fire back at me with some other thing but thats not what I'm talking about. You're talking like he played a part in the loss when he did nothing to make us lose.

Sasha is not to blame for this loss. But he sure as hell didn't help. He's a shooter and... he didn't do his job very well.

Sasha is in a obvious slump but Samson is right we didn't lose this game because of him.

Defense DEFense Defense!!!!!!

These past two games we take the lead in the third and it goes to SH! T immediately by either Chauncey Billups or Leandro putting a head lock our spurt.

We got a day off tomorrow then we play the Girzzlies at home . Then two days off play the Wolves at home.

PJ GET TO WORK :yes:

I knew something wasn't right. I remember looking down at how much time there was left when Shaq made the basket and noticed the shot clock was still at 24 while the time was going. Definitely strange.....

Holy crap man... I thought I was seeing things when that happened because I DO remember this happening at one point in the game. Wow... a lot can happen with an extra 9 seconds when you're down single digits. I also remember trevor getting the out of bounds call against him when the ball clear as day hit the other guys foot. I'm not going to say we could have won with the extra 9 seconds and a possession but we could of at least had a whack at it. I'm officially pissed now.
