I say they loose before they reach LA. But if not, let it be goodbye winning streak. Not only should the Lakers prevent the Celtics from a 20-game winning streak for obvious reasons, but also to make up for letting the Rockets make history with a 22-game winning streak last season (before Boston beat them). If the Celtics don't lose before xmas day, I don't want the Lakers to be the team to give Boston the 3rd best streak in NBA history. Beat the Celts, so they remain tied for 4th place with the Lakers of '99-'00---that's IF the Celts don't lose before that. And, even if they do lose before xmas day, beat them anyway. :angry:

How? They play the Bulls, Knicks and Sixers, all in Boston, before us.

If the Lakers don't beat them in Los Angeles, the Blazers will do it in Portland.

I pray we do then I can rub it in my friends face (a c's fan) for the next couple of months... please let it happen!!
But to be fair they 'could' lose to any of those teams.. they aren't invincible and as we've seen the knicks can be giant killers..

Listen ya'll... the Celtics ain't losin before gettin to LA.

NO WAY IN HELL THEY LOSE TO BUNCH OF SCRUB TEAMS ON HOME COURT.

Lakers better be ready because they're going to be thumping into Staples.

I say Lakers win a close one.

This is going to be THE most anticipated Xmas matchup EVER.

The lakers will be PUMPED, no question about it... hopefully no short shorts...

all of these "predictions" are completely baseless.

all i can contribute here is the fact that the Celtics match-up with the Knicks on Sunday is the one I have my eye on. If the Knick can shoot the lights out as well as produce on the fly and show a little more defensive intensity, they'll give Boston's style a test.

Honestly, though, the Lakers have two big tests (Orlando and NO) before the Celtics are even in their mind's eye. A loss in either one of them (both on back to back nights) wouldn't really surprise me.

That Orlando game is going to rough.

like the 2 other members who posted, I'm keeping my eyes on the knicks and was leaning towards them upsetting the celts. but, as another member pointed out, I shouldn't overlook orlando and the hornets. I hope the Lakers aren't. One game at a time. I was just emphasizing that if the celts were unbeaten, it was up to the Lakers to beat them, just to show they can win the games they need to. Imagine a game 7 NBA finals at home. Could this be foreshadowing?

I think it can happen. Unfortunately I think that they might get too riled up for the game and start making small errors because they're not totally in control of their focus.

This game means more to the Lakers than it does to Boston, because Boston believes without a doubt that the Lakers can not beat them. The Lakers have something to prove, and even though it's just one game, the last time they played Boston was one of the largest blowout losses in recorded history.

As things stand right now the answer is a big fat "NO!".

Let me give y'all the keys to success:


1. Less Kobe is more. It is a FACT that Pau Gasol early and often is a recipe for success.

2. Lamar Odom. Our 6th man needs to man up and be aggressive not only against the C's but against everyone else. This guy needs to bring his A-Game every freaking night, you've been hanging out with Mr. Bryant for a while now take some of that Kobe Bryant aggressiveness for yourself knuckle-head!

3. Trevor Ariza. Trevor Ariza must come off the bench and provide an aggressive defensive mentality, if this means cracking Oscar Winning actor Paul Pierce upside the head then so be it.

Happy Holidays and God Bless the Lakers Nation.
