Pau didn't play well, but you can tell he's healthier than he has been all season.

He just doesn't fit with this team.

Yeah well it's better than losing. W's are W's


True, but this team isn't showing anything to give fans confidence in them.

Lakers looking scary! Barely beat the Wizards, demolished the undermanned Sixers, and closely beating the Bobcats that's on a 11 game skid by only a point.


Because the Lakers weren't undermanned at all...

True, but this team isn't showing anything to give fans confidence in them.


Coming back from nearly 20 points down means absolutely nothing then?

Does wonders for the Lakers confidence to FINALLY do that as a team when they could have folded.

It may not mean much to you but it means the world to them, going forward.

Everyone has things to work on: The entire team sans Kobe and Meeks for not playing hard during the stretches in the second and beginning of the third, Kobe shooting a little less and stop taking bad shots that mess up our rhythm, Dwight not making dumbass plays like the goaltend at the end, Meeks staying in front of his man.

Way too stressful a game. How we can just let teams build up those huge leads with no attempt at stopping them is beyond me.

W's are W's.

We got Nash coming back, just gotta keep pushing forward. We've looked good at times and bad, some of you act like its 48 minutes of horrible basketball. It's not.

I keep hearing fans say that we just need to get wins, but when we do, they are still [expletive]ing and moaning about it.

Like I said, we gotta play better and be more consistent, but with the attitude of the fans, you would think we lost. I don't care the opponent, we NEED wins. End of story.

It doesn't mean "nothing", but it illustrates my point.

This team is horridly inconsistent. Shouldn't have been down 18 in the first place. Then they decide they want to play basketball? Wtf? There isn't a single game that I think "the Lakers are definitely going to win this one". It's all up in the air.

We went on a 30-4 run to get the lead back.


But it means nothing I guess

I agree with you.

We need the wins. But we still don't have consistency in any fashion, and thus I don't have any confidence in this team. Nash coming back is the hope we are all clinging to, but we still don't know if it's going to save us.

I say the all star break is really when consistency and system should be down pat. I expect us to end the season on a very, very strong note if these players truly do have championship aspirations.

He wouldn't be the first Bobcat to get a contract after showing out against us.

Shannon Brown anyone?
