Obviously they are the best team in the leauge in the early season and it is gonna be tough for us to get a win, especially considering the fact that we haven't played well at all. They are favoured to win this one, but remember we are also a great team (maybe even better) but we just gotta make it together.

The difference right now is pretty much the same as it was early last year. They are playing well because they are hitting their shots. We maybe are not that bad either but we just don't make shots, that's it. They put the 2nd unit in and bench is so agressive with Farmar, Ariza. They are playing with a great effort and they are making shots. And it is not only Kobe, actually his role is not that big anymore.

They have played great defense so far too or maybe it is just the teams they played. Obviously 2xClippers, Portland and Denver is not a tough schedule.

Now I wanna look at matchups:

Yao - Bynum --> Well lately Yao hasn't play well at all. Bynum also hasn't been impressive but at least he is a monster inside and that is what I am afraid of. I mean Yao has had his troubles playing inside, he's been missing dunks, etc. Hopefully Yao will only play better and rebound well.

Scola - Gasol --> This is probably the only match up I am not afraid of. Scola's jumper has been money. He was obviously our best player in win against Clippers. And Luis knows Gasol so well and actually I belive he can shut him down.

Ron - Kobe --> Well finally we saw something good from Ron against Clips. It will be a game when Ron has to step up. Not only on defense but also on offense which will allow Tracy to do more. He gotta make sure Kobe's not going to the ft line, he need to make him a jumpshooter and as a team we can't be afraid of doubling Kobe. Offensivly he has to attack. He is too strong not to that.

McGrady - Odom --> Don't need to comment his game on Friday but he was obviously sick or something. Nobody expect that to happen again and I am sure it won't. Hopefullu his jumpers will only get better, but the main thing for him is to attack the basket. It just opens up so many things for this team, and now when he is hitting his free throws he is pretty much unstopable. Tracy, one advice for you, guard your man.

Rafer - Derek --> This one goes for the Lakers. Fisher is more consistant shooter but Rafer (the last two games) has improved a lot.

But the main thing is this game will be freethrows and rebounds. If we will be able to grab some on the offensve end control the defensive ones, than I belive we have a big chance of winning.

Free throws, well we all know that strory with Lakers. They have no problems with getting 40-45 times a game to the charity stripe and sometimes refs really help them (and they hate us). So we have to be careful and control the paint. If we limit their free throws shooting (especially Kobe's) than we will probably win.

Your thoughts?

This guy doesn't know much about the Lakers, he thinks that Odom's starting.

& At least he's giving us a lot of respect, except on the Scola-Gasol part where I strongly disagree on his analysis on that.

The team hasen't been shooting the ball well recently right? what the :P is he talking about

The difference right now is pretty much the same as it was early last year. They are playing well because they are hitting their shots.

Battier's not playing? Duhz......

And yeah, we are topping the PPG with a very least efficient FG%....yeah, we aren't hitting our shots, but we are still getting it done.

Some people here are seriously underrating Scola, his jumper is money and can bang with the best of them. But of course the Lakers will win like always. :P

Lakers aren't getting 40-45 free throws a game. :P However, our free throw percentage isn't that great though (only about 75%) so we'll need to make them when we get to the line.

Rafer is garbage... Yao is playing like crap... T-mac is not 100%... No Battier... plus the Lakers' bench will be blowing them out of the water...

But then again they have a bad habit of losing to Lottery teams like the Bobcats and the Grizzlies...

This will definitely be the hardest game of the year we've played so far. Still, I think our talent outmatches theirs. Of course, anything can go wrong on the night. I just don't see them outmatching all of our talent. We have so many people who can step up and win the game.

Scola is a good player, but no way close to Pau.
