Oh...and farmar played terribly, as did Vujacic, AND Walton. And Ariza made some great plays, but MISSED sooo many outside shots. Overall, we missed a S-load of outside shots tonight.


I didn't think Sasha played that bad. Sasha was pretty good offensively(4-5, 9 points) and except for some really crappy calls by the refs, he did an OK job on defense.

That foul where he landed on his hip was really stupid though. (Why is it that all of my favorite players seem to do some of the strangest stuff?)

A win is always a win. I´ll take it. We would have another time to play some D, we don´t need D against teams like Knicks or Wolves.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Alright so went to the game, heres my recap for the night:

Met Jerome Williams, very nice guy, got a picture with him.

Very disappointed that Pau didn't play. Second consecutive Laker game I've gone to where he doesn't play.

The game was very stressful in the first half. I've been wanting them to play good defense and they decided to play horrible D in the first half.

Lakers got BOO'ED off the court at half-time.

3rd Quarter was the Lakers best defensive quarter IMO. Thats where they trimmed the 15 point lead to 4.

Got to see Kobe be Kobe in the fourth, just amazing.

Lamar Odom needs to be traded.I dont care about his statline. He had 3-4 plays that could have easily cost us the game. Shawn Marion for Lamar Odom.

I was glad to see the Lakers get the W. Didnt get the tacos, but my buddy and I got some bacon wrapped hot dogs outside of Staples. Delicious.

My sports life would be so much easier if I could gloss over mediocrity with a "a win is a win" attitude. Its great if that works for you. It dosent for me. From a strictly entertainment standpoint, that was a fun game. From the "in order to beat the Celtics the Lakers have to be more like the Celtics" standpoint, that game was awful. I predict pain and humiliation on christmas. If you think like I do, that there is a dark cloud over their 21and3 record because of the lack of D, then just wait for the second half of the season after a christmas loss. :(

agreed. entertaining game but a lot closer than it should've been. and how many missed LAYUPS from Bynum and Lamar? main issues are...

...defense, free throws, and focus.

The only problem I say is with the D. That is a product of arrogance, entitlement, lack of respect for your opponent, and a lack of focus.

Phil out coaches Dantoni once again.

The foul at the end FIsher made on Nate Robinson.

Prevented the three point tie and Nate actually made it after the play.

Being there I can say it was definitely a playoff atmosphere.

That being said, I am also glad they pulled through the adversity to win.

Lastly, thank you Phil for fouling for when you are up three < the big story of the night imo.
