LA Lakers at Oklahoma City

if we win thats a huge cushion for us. Next game is NO who we can defiantly beat and that would push us +2 over .500 but not not a huge loss for us being that NO is the next game and can easily get us back to .500.
The main thing about this game is if we lose no matter by how much is to not get discouraged and lose the easy ones like NO.

This team has a superstar who is busting his ass to get us into the playoffs. He is carrying this team. Nash, Howard, Clark, Artest, Jamison, Meeks, Blake...all of them need to pick it up.
We may be able to score 95-100 in some of these games, but our offense is still average, despite the numbers, because we're requiring that Kobe drops 30 every game. We have to change that.
Defensively, still bad...probably bottom 10 in the NBA, too tired to look right now (it's 4 AM and I'm sick of browsing NBA stats).
Two players will need to step up Tuesday night if we want to beat the Thunder, and we need at least ONE productive bench player.

I'm not concerned about Durant, the player that scares me is Russell Westbrook. He always plays his heart out when he sees a Laker uniform, if he starts hitting running 3s then we're doomed. I wish he has an off night because it is actually our only chance to win in OKC.
Arguably the greatest franchise ever

one positive off the bat is that Serge will probably miss this game (Suspension)

We can't drop below .500. We are at a point we need to make a statement. Let's go fellas!

That is what I'm saying, You can see Kobe wants it. Everybody else needs to step up. Offense and defense is still not consistent. I Hope we can win this one though.

We cant really afford to lose this one.
We can only afford to lose 4-5 more games if we want to have a good chance of making the playoffs.

i can't see how we can possibly win.
Same way we beat them last time we played.

I wont be able to watch tomorrow night's game. Hope Ibaka is suspended, if not Im not sure we'll win. Either way I just hope we get out of OKC with everyone healthy

Big test for us. You could tell Kobe was itching to get this one started after his postgame interview with Mike Trudell last night. Hopefully his teammates follow suit. 4 of our starters need to play well and at least two off the bench. That means if Jamison keeps up his double digit scoring streak, we only need one of Meeks/Blake to give us a boost. And limit the turnovers. We do those things we should win despite our horrendous free throw shooting.

For some reason I have having a feeling that Meeks is going to be the key here.

i dont see lakers winning in Oklahoma Westbrook will act like a moron as usually against us plus referees lead to a loss
