LA Lakers at Dallas

We should win, but we need our bench to play better, and Gasol can't get lit up by Dirk when both he and Drew are on the floor.

This better be a W.
You see this little hole? This moth's just about to emerge. It's in there right now, struggling. It's digging it's way through the thick hide of the cocoon. Now, I could help it - take my knife, gently widen the opening, and the moth would be free - but it would be too weak to survive. Struggle is nature's way of strengthening it." - John Locke

Stop saying stuff like that.
Something tells me even though Dallas blows we drop this one.
This is gonna be a tough one for the Lakers. Gotta come out focused and ready to play great D.

Once they lost Dirk, they went 2-7, which dropped them out of second place in the West.
Now that he's back in, they are still battling injuries. Caron is done for the year, and Chandler is out right now.
They won't be as great of a team without Caron Butler playing, just because he added an extra element to their offense (his slashing played a role in how they set up Dirk's jumpers), but they will continue to struggle, for sure, as long as Tyson Chandler is out. He is their defensive anchor. Without him, Dallas goes from being a top defensive team in the NBA...to a bottom 15.
Bring Chandler back in, and if everyone else remains healthy, Dallas can still contend, even without Caron. They won't be the bigger threat, but at one point, I'd call them a huge, huge threat to our three-peat, maybe even bigger than the Spurs.

Missing Chandler is huge though, but, knowing our luck, he'll be healthy enough to go 35+ minutes against us tomorrow
