Iverson, Hamilton & Wallace will likely be out (via Detroit press) so we should win this one.

Rasheed and Iverson won't play. Hamilton is doubtful. We can't afford to lose against a roster so banged-up. Go Lakers !!1

Lamar : 19/ 12/ 5

"The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure.
The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences,
and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon,
for each day to have a new and different sun."

Scouting Report

The last time we played Detroit was on November 14th at Staples Center. That night the Pistons ruined our chances for an undefeated season beating us 106-95. They shot well that night and we shot poorly and Detroit won the game at the free throw line – they shot 29-34 and we shot 11-16. We have lost six straight games at the Palace of Auburn Hills and it will take a very good effort to break their streak. Detroit has a poor record this season for a number of reasons but the main one is injuries. Iverson has missed the last 14 games, Rasheed Wallace has missed the last eight games, and Rip Hamilton has missed the last five games. All three are listed as out at the time of this writing but that can change by game time. Regardless of the type of season they are having they are capable of beating anybody (especially at the Palace). Evidence of this is the fact that they have beaten five of the current division leaders (Us, Cleveland, Orlando, Denver, Boston). Just like the game at Oklahoma City, a quick start will help keep the crowd out of the contest and set the tone for what we want to be a long night for the home team.

The Pistons are no longer trying to play the up-tempo game we saw from them earlier in the season. They will run off opportunities (like steals) but will not look to take the ball out of the basket and push it (the exception is when Will Bynum comes in the game). Because of their recent injuries Prince and McDyess are looking to score more. With his length Prince is a tough matchup when he gets it on the post or in a wing isolation. McDyess is hurting people on the offensive boards lately as well as in a pick and pop situation. We must contain Stuckey, Afflalo, and Bynum. We cannot allow them to penetrate our paint. If the Pistons are missing their key offensive players we cannot help their cause by giving up easy points – transition, free throws, offensive rebounds/putbacks. They will run some generic NBA play sets so we must be ready to shut these down.

Defensively, the Pistons have shown some 2-3 zone. They are sometimes vulnerable in transition because their guards penetrate a lot and get buried in the paint so they are not in position to get back and form a line of transition defense. If Detroit goes small we must recognize it and pound the ball inside. We must show more patience than we did in the first game. Instead of one or two passes and then a shot we must use three, four, or five passes – getting the ball from side to side or from inside to out and back in – to get a great shot.

Make Stuckey a jumpshooter and the game will be over at halftime.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

This no tape delay thing bites.

I understand why some don't like it, but to penalize those who have to work is a bummer.

The main thing is that the Lakers just have to remember that the Pistons (no matter who's hurt or not) will step up to play them. Don't come in expecting anything except competition.

Remain sharp and go with defense first, the game will take care of itself today.

Lamar's jumper has been looking really good in recent games - would be huge if he could stay consistent with that.
