^half court teams

Like the Spurs, Indiana, Chicago, Memphis are teams we can hang with on an every day basis and are matchup nightmares for some.

Its the fast breaking second chance points break starting teams that trouble us, if we don't rebound especially.

 

Top 10 Fastbreak Points per Game 2012-2013

 

1. Denver
2. Houston
3. Atlanta
4. OKC
5. Kings
6. Dallas
7. Charlotte
8. LA Clippers
9. Golden State
10. Utah

...

16. Spurs
22. Lakers

26. Portland

 

Fastbreak teams have a lot of young players that have the stamina to always run.

8. LA Clippers (0-4)
9. Golden State (2-1)

Jim Buss should reward Minnesota Timberwolves players if they sneak a win or two in their next games against the Jazz. It's pretty common in European football to pay other teams in order to help your team, I think the Lakers management should do it too.

Minnesota,

 

Just win 1 game. Please. Just 1.

 

Memphis will take care of business against Utah. All we need is 1 Minnesota win and the ball is in our court.

I hope it doesn't mirror the 2013 records:

 

Utah Jazz 2013 Record:


Mar 16 vs Memphis - Win
Feb 13 @ Minessota - Win
Jan 2 vs Minessota - Win

Lakers 2013 Record:


Mar 25 @ Warriors - Lost
Jan 9 @ Spurs- Lost
Jan 8 @ Rockets - Lost

That is so illegal

I think some years back, some team did do something like this, and sent another team a bottle of champagne or something as a thank you for beating a team and helping them make it in the playoffs

Stern got mad...
It may not have even been the nba

But I remember something like this did happen....

Rewatching the laker game
Kobe scored the last 3 points of the 3rd for the lakers
Then. Scored the first 14 in the 4th for the lakers

He scored 26 of his 30 in the last 12 mins 30 seconds of the game

A 30 point 6 rebound 6 assist game
Like nothing, taking it easy most of the game
He is making it a point to get pau involved
Dwight has his head in the game(most of the time)
Metta is back, and Steve Blake is playing like we all hoped when we signed him

We still do not appriciate how great Kobe is

Just to look ahead, after seeing how hard OKC competed last night Im starting to think they're gonna end up capturing the 1st seed, they have an easier schedule the rest of the way and they have an incentive to push for No.1 seed...get KD a scoring title, the no.1 seed and improving MVP chances

Spurs face @DEN, @LAL, @GSW and then vs SAC, vs MIN...there's just no incentive for them to play their guys they know they can beat OKC in a road series since they dont have Harden and if you're Pop wouldn't you feed OKC to the Lakers? The are far more positives in getting the No.2 seed for SAS.  

Get ready folks...LAKERS VS OKC PART THREE!

^ We're going to have to get through the Thunder either way, so there's no other team I'd be content with losing to. Just wish it was in late May.

Lakers should probably just worry about making the playoffs for now.

OKC would kill us. Bad matchup. Too athletic. Spurs not so much.

OKC has never beat us with a full lineup. The one time they did we beat them with no problems.

We lost to the Spurs by 1 with Duhon and Morris playing and a coaching transition, and we lost to them again by 2 I think without both Gasol and Howard.

Spurs don't want to see a full lineup of ours in the first round at all.

The one time we did beat OKC this season, they were thrown off by Kobe going into facilitator mode. If we were to meet them in the playoffs, they will be ready for anything we throw at them full lineup or not.
