I first started to notice this with last years finals. In re-watching, I noticed that when Boston started to make a run, our guys made flubs, threw the ball away, and/or took bad shots. Again with the most recent loss, I noticed that once the Pacers started to make a run and started putting pressure on us, we folded a bit. I guess we still are a relatively young team besides Kobe and Fisher, but hopefully we can get our mental game together a little bit better so we can handle and thrive on the pressure when it is put upon us next.

well the Sixers made a run last night too...didn't they cut it down from 20 to 11 or something close to that? But we handled it well and kept them at bay

im confident this team will get better at managing leads and playing under pressure as the season goes on

yeah, i think we can thanx to the Boston losses
Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers

and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon,
for each day to have a new and different sun."
