@ Portland
@ Houston
@ San Antonio

I think the Lakers will go 3-0 on this road trip.

I'm tired of losing in Portland. :nah:

Yeh, I hate always losing at the Rose Garden. Hope they can break that losing streak this time.

I voted 3-0 only because I think the energy is back for the Lakers after last night. The bench just errupted. If this second unit plays with the same level of intensity during that road trip, we'll be fine. Those games won't be easy though. We haven't won in Portland in how much, 4 years ? Houston are playing well and last time we had the same back-to-back scenario with Spurs after Houston we lost... We really need to make a statement and beat the Spurs at their house ! Go Lakers !

For every game I always believe the Lakers will win until it's 0:00 and the other team has more points. So, in keeping with that... 3-0!

It will happen especially if:
- The bench is under control and keeps their poise; not necessarily building huge leads but definitely not creating deficits.
- Kobe takes the match ups with Roy, Wafer, and Mason seriously and doesn't try to go one on one too much against Battier and Bowen.
- They don't give the opposition too many offensive rebounds.
- They contest 3 point shooters at an above average effort.

Get it done, Lakers.

I think 2-1 on the roadtrip. We will win in Portland and San Antonio. But lose is Houston I think. Hope i'm wrong though.

I'm more worried about San Antonio.. but Rockets did beat the Suns last night.


We'll just have to wait and see and hope.

I guarantee we'll win at least 2 games but I won't be surprised if we win 3.

3-0 Believe.
"If you could stop all the players that get publicized and all the players that the NBA likes and all the players, you know, the players that win the MVP's, you know, for their offense. And some of them, you know, play pretty good defense too. But some of them, you know, they like "this guy he can shoot, he can score, he can dunk." and I want to be the one to stop all those guys, you know, and just kinda spoil the whole party." - Ron Artest

Every one of those games are completely losable if we don't play well throughout. Even with Bynum we struggled keeping the foot on the gas in Houston and San Antonio. Portland is hard to predict since we've yet to play there this season but obviously they're not the type of team that we can break out against with a big lead and then fold in the second half.

3-0 would be great, but 2-1 sounds more realistic to me. Either one wouldn't surprise me, though.

I think exactly the same. I use to be a pessimist when it comes to belief in my teams. But when we win, it's an even greater feeling. :D

I say 3-0 myself. The bench is playing at a higher level, everyone is involved again. Also the defense is playing better for the last 2 games, granted it was only Memphis and Minnesota.
