We played great yesterday in the fourth quarter with big defense on the Knicks. I really like that and want to underline the fact that we have 2 big players on the defensive end in Howard and World Peace.

Both played great and stepped up for us when we needed them . It was amazing! :)

Hope we can keep this up now for the next weeks!


The problem is we are going to face the Nuggets and Blazers this week, who are 2 of our rivalrys (directly) in the conference ,they are 2-3 positions above us and with a win we can make more impact and get them!


What do ya think?

I think the Denver, Portland, and Houston games are our 3 MOST important games we have coming up and we cannot afford to "no show" against them.


Something tells me Steve Nash wouldn't allow that but we'll see. Kobe wouldn't either but then he'd be the only one that showed.

So we'll see how we do. It's a perfect excuse to come in against Denver flat, we just beat the Knocks, 5 in a row, feeling good, THEY just lost to the Clippers and don't want to be blown out bu 30 against us again. So they'll play with a vengeance. We have to do the same or it's back to square one.


Against Portland, who has seemed to find their groove it's all about how hard Lamarcus Aldridge takes it to Pau Gasol, and how often he's able to. We need to play with intensity and put them away too.

The Rockets are a team we're built to foil but we can't allow anymore come backs.


This next Nuggets game will tell us what we need to know in terms of whether this team is serious or not about moving forward. Cause I remember we went 4-1 and then went 1-5. Let's not do that again.

With the talent that the Lakers have, the only obstacal I see for the Lakers (if healthy) in the playoffs is the Spurs and the Thunder (home court advantage or not) at least in the West. The Lakers haven't had a healthy lineup for 26 games of the 28 they played.

Portland and Houston has always been really easy at home, but playing the Nuggets in Denver is always tough, it is almost an automatic loss.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

How about contributing to the thread instead of you and MrKnowitall turning it into your own personal "complain about manaro" space again?

Portland might be tricky.

Damian Lillard is playing really well.
