Boston losing again at home, seriously? I'm still waiting for them to face an actual contender on the road...

Edit: Nvm, forgot about christmas day game @ Orlando.

Thats true the Lakers dropped the ball on the road against those two teams I think staying at home so long kinda messed with our focus which I think/hope we regained after this little 5 game road trip.

I thought the last 2 were better than the first 3. To me, the Bulls,Bucks, had chances to win. But the Lake Show looked a lot better in the last 2.

Did they "beat" any of them?

If you count Houston, they are off to a fast start, plus we did that without Pau. Denver we were not at full strength and the game in Utah was Kobe's worst. (finger). You guys beat Cleveland which is a little more impressive but it was the first game of the year and you have been fully healthy thus far.

Do "you"count houston as a contender? i dont. See, you didn't have Pau and you guys got your clocked cleaned in Denver. But some how no "Laker" fan will admit that when your missing 1 of your top 2 guys, its tough to beat a top ten team................ ie, Celtics vs Magic last years playoffs...

Sure it's tough to beat them, but we can do it. We lost interest in the 2nd half and didn't have enough energy in the losses to Denver and Utah. If we are focused we can do big things. That's why it's scary for the rest of the league when we are healthy and play with focus and energy.
