The Lakers feel this one escaped them, that they had every opportunity to lower the Jazz halfway into the grave but let them escape. They know they have to improve they have to do a better job on the boards after getting outrebounded 55-40. They figure they'll get a better shooting night from Bryant in Game 4 Saturday. And they figure to get more from Bynum, who might or might not return to the starting lineup.

When you pick up two quick fouls early in the first, maybe it's not such a bad idea.

LO can easily play with either unit.

Drew has to keep the ball high when he's in the post so those smaller guys guarding him can't strip the ball down low. That said, it's hard to find a rhythm when you're only on the floor 7 minutes.
Andre Iguodala via Twitter - It's not even close...and I'm not talkin bout the score.

He is a fouling machine, he can´t stay out of foul trouble...I know he is not in good shape yet but he should be smarter at the court right now.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

I appreciate his willingness to go out there and play physical. If you go back and watch yesterday's clips, Drew had some good positioning and wanted to bang it out, thing that sucks is the calls that were made on him. That Milsap flop was a joke.

They shouldnt. LO has been carrying our bench and is playing starter minutes and starter possesions.

they should have had ab in the final minutes though. he could have showed on DWill's shot and made it harder (thats what she said) or maybe blocked it
Kobe's official reign of terror is about to get its jump off on.
