When great teams have big leads, they continue to crush you...erasing all doubt of total dominance. I've seen this in Boston and Cleveland but I've yet to see it in LA. When you're good defensively, your defense doesn't allow mental lapses.

I don't think this arguement will come to an end any time soon... Let's just wait until the next game and see what adjustments did they make.

Let's go Lakers ! Who's with me ? ;)

Don't get me wrong, Lakers all the way. But its frustrating when fans know what the problems are AND the players and coaches know as well...even so much so that even the players and coaches have clearly stated that defense needs to be the focus. We had 82 games to put our money where our mouths are...and we didn't. We didn't commit to defense like we said we would. Offense will never win championships.

And dont blame the game on the refs.

Oh, I'm kinda learning not to know, have to change my ways. I've realized the refs are always gonna' be bad in Utah no matter what cuz they always have historically speaking and that goes with and against every team they encounter there cuz everybody in the league knows it and talks about it as well as fans from every other team around the NBA so that's gonna' be there by default. Gotta' not even think about that now really. David Stern isn't gonna' do [expletive] about it, nor are we, nor can we, sadly, so what's not in our control, why even bother as unjust as things may be.

So last year when we came back on bostons 20+ point lead in game 2? Leads mean nothing. End results mean EVERYTHING
Kobe's official reign of terror is about to get its jump off on.

All I know is Bynum better show up tonight. He needs to be a factor now and for the rest of the playoffs. I will be so pumped tonight!

Well if Bynum comes off the bench you can expect high production from the 2nd unit. Odom + Bynum are one deadly offensive comibination. Imagine if Brown or Vujacic decide to show up too... ;)

Its just that the bench needs to be effective on the road and for the most part they haven't been. I'm very pleased with Shannon Brown's play though.

I hope Farmar is gone next season.

Shannon plays good only in Staples. His shots are not falling on the road ( I hope he confutes my words tonight ) Lamar on the other hand has good games on the road. He loves hostile environments.

Oh and Farmar is a heck of a player when not struggling. He just needs to find a way to exit that slump he's in... He needs playing time to get his confidence back but I doubt PJ will give him that PT especially in the playoffs...

Go Lakers !!!
