I don't like all this negativity just because we lost a game by a TIP-IN! Boston never swept us. We won two games against them in the finals (pretty damn close to three, as well), and they've never had to face us with Bynum AND Gasol. We definitely need to clean some of our crap up, but i'm not ready to roll over and play dead.

I don't think that Boston would blow a 16 point lead! And Sure Boston didn't sweep us, but remind us all about game 6 will you? The fans aren't playing dead, they just see that if the Lakers don't up their defense christmas will be sour for the laker nation.

No, we didn't lose by a tip-in. WE LOST THE GAME BY PLAYING NO D!!!!!!!! Omg how can anyone that watch that game say that we lost by a tip-in!? If we played D, that tip-in will not have any meaning!

They swept us during the regular season....07-08.

We can beat them. We have before and will again.

I think the reason they lost at home against them during the regular season is because of those short 80's shorts they were wearing. I think that got into the heads of the Lakers more macho players who thought they looked ridiculous.

Andrew is starting to get his legs back - though he has rebounded poorly that past two games... He'll be near where he was at his peak last season come X-Mas day.

We're going to send a message to Boston. If we don't come out absolutely ferociously, they will send a worse one to us. The boys BETTER be ready, I know Drew is.

I Agree, last season Ariza was not even a threat, I barely knew who he was...

This season ariza is AMAZING with bynum coming out producing about 12-20 pts and around 9 rebounds a game BUT

DID ANY OF U SEE THE WIZARDS GAME?

we had a great lead and once again lost it...we won the game by 2 points.. what if that 3 point attempt went in?

DO I HAVE TO REMIND YOU THESE WERE THE WIZARDS? (3-14)

Now I believe we can beat Boston if we get a 40 point lead in the first half.
