We won by 13 but we have to focus on defensive rebounding for the next games, specially in Utah. We gave up too many 2nd chance points, we got killed by Millsap once again (one of the most famous Laker Killers) and they stayed alive due to their several offensive rebounds. Blowem out in Game 2!

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

I agree. They had 20 offensive rebounds in Game 1 and outrebounded us 46-38. We've got to do better than that.

Great win for the Lakeshow. The start to a championship begins now.
"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

Bynum was in trouble most of the night, I expect him to bounce back better Game 2 and help clean up those boards.

Also, remember this when the TNT guys tell you that Andrew Bynum is "injury prone" -- it's because Kobe Bryant fell on his leg. He's injury prone because someone fell on his leg. Put that in your pipe when one of them says something along the lines of "I just don't know if they can rely on him." Can they rely on Kobe to not fall down and tumble into his leg, again?

Everything was all good yesterday but I hope the win doesn't let them settle for halfass adjustments. Even though Utah is one of the better offensive rebounding teams in the league, we let them have that m.o. way too easy.. Doesn't help that Drew was out but there still needs to be a collective effort at fighting for rebounds. Mehemt's out but is expected to try and make a return Tues. He's the Jazz's second leading scorer and will attract alot of attention for Bynum to come out and try to defend. I don't know what percentage he'll be at as far as production but we still shouldn't take it lightly.

Lakers played a zone D to start the 2nd half because they were up 20. A zone D always gives up rebounds, especially offensive boards but it limits production in the paint and keeps guys like D-Will from getting into the lane to take high percentage jumpers. Its used because even though it gives up some second chance opportunities, it also forces Utah to use lots of clock on each possesion and hopefully more after each rebound. In the second half the Lakers were playing against the game clock, not the Jazz. I'm happy they didnt route them because all that does it motivate an embarrased team when the series goes back to Utah. Dont give them anything that can help them. Route them on the 4th win when theres no coming back....lol.

Note: A zone D in b-ball is like a football team playing Prevent D with only 3 on the lines and 8 deep when there up by 2+ touchdowns. The problem is sometimes a prevent D can prevent you from winning. But it usually justifies its means in the end.

We won by 13 but we have to focus on defensive rebounding for the next games, specially in Utah. We gave up too many 2nd chance points, we got killed by Millsap once again (one of the most famous Laker Killers) and they stayed alive due to their several offensive rebounds. Blow�em out in Game 2!
