I gave Kobe props for that nice split and kick to Ariza for the 3.

I used to do that all the time too Jun, until my son starting getting old enough to realize what I am doing.

My lady told me their minds are like sponges and he will imitate whatever I am doing.

SO now I go to the garage by myself and I start beating the hell out of my punching bag :lol:

Good for you, it wasn't healthy at all. You would've felt sick to your stomach witnessing some of the extreme injustice that went on tonight. It was just flat out sad. Pickin' on Drew especially, many ticky tacks, Gasol getting raped constantly, yeah they called em' sometimes, but not enough, and he missed free throws, but man, they let so much go it wasn't even funny. The thing they get away with more than anything is the constant reaching and slapping. I can't believe they let them get away with so much. It really makes you wonder. Effin' sad.

Don't get me wrong, Lakers still had their chances, that being said and they have themselves to blame as well. Kobe, bad shooting night, didn't make the adjustment and go to the basket more, Pau, missed free throws, Bynum, foul trouble, though most to blame on horrid refs, but still, just effin' sad the crap that went on out there.

This team is the same soft 07-08 team. We can´t hold leads and we get outrebounded and outhustled easily even at home. I know it is just one bad game, but we had a chance of finishing them off yesterday and we blew it. Game 4 is a must win for us.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

If the Lakers are going to play like crap and lose by only two, I have reason to be optimistic.

I knew the Lakers would lose one in Utah. So i'm not really disappointed with the loss, but just with the way the team played.

I'm really being reminded of how it felt after every loss during last year's playoffs.

I'm just ready for the next game to see how our team responds. Somebody really needs to focus the team when we get a 10-12 point lead (Kobe) and lock in on D. When our offense in clicking, we stop playing D to the best of our ability. When the offense suffers, the defense is so much better. Wish we could get some balance. I'm actually surprised Phil called a timeout after LO shot that heat-check three. Hopefully, this loss was a wake up call.

We should be worried, but I think everyone is overreacting. It's great to see concern from fans, but have faith in the team. We can't play great every night. I understand it hurts that we lost especially when we could have won, but no one understands this more than the Lakers.

soft as a roll of charmin

I agree. Pau was pretty soft, and Drew being out didn't help. It's good we drew Utah in the first round. We need to get tough now and not later.
Andre Iguodala via Twitter - It's not even close...and I'm not talkin bout the score.
