Phil: Lakers can win Game 5 even without ‘Drew

Confidence in the team… or more mind games?

USA Today: “We’re going to try and establish the fact that we’re going back to L.A. with a 3-2 lead,” Jackson said Friday. “We believe we can do it. We felt we let one get away last night.”

    We need Bynumite in the middle. With him, we are more able to controll the Boards.

    MY PRAYS ARE WITH HIM

    Anyone with half a basketball mind could see why we lost Thursday was that we lost control of the paint. We can win without him, but it’d be that much easier with him. Get right, big man. Two more games, that’s all we need.

    We can do it with or with out Bynum. Get well big man. Lakers let’s bring it back to LA!

    Big Drew is very much needed in the middle. Boston’s big men other than Andrew out weighs the Lakers’s bigs and therefore pushes them around (yes and that includes Pau Gasol) Big drew is the game changer in that scenario and is the reason we will win when he plays on Sunday night and on the following Tuesday night.
    I pray that Heavenly Father wills it so, that Andrew can and will play on Sunday night. I for 1 will be praying that he will be fine and that he does no further harm to himself if he should play and God almighty wills it. I have said more than once that this is the stuff legends are made of. Andrew is the Los Angeles Lakers’ version of Willis Reed, when he limped on one leg in the 69-70 championship and through his heroics was able to will his team to victory in that Championship Series. So I have that same type of belief in this young man. If it be Gods will. Lets Go Lakers. And all you Laker fans keep the faith.

    the easier we blow this game out tomorrow, then the more chances that bynum can just rest. give him his 20mins, block some shots, grab the boards, and score some pts, then you can rest and treat your knee. SO LETS GET IT DONE LAKERS!!! 2 MORE WINS! JUST 2 MORE WINS!!!

    Don’t worry Lakers fans “We got this” I just pray to GOD that Andrew can play some quality minutes without any pain. Come on Big Guy We Need You!!!!!

    i’m a die-hard laker fan. i’m DEFINITELY hoping for the best… but in any case, i’m getting myself emotionally and mentally prepared for anything… i know our lakers can go home up 3-2, but i don’t think i can take the heartbreak if it goes the other way… the suspense is killing me! i hope we blow the celtics out early so we can give drew, kobe, pau, and fish a substantial breather.
    COME ON, LA. I DON’T WANT US TO BE FORCED TO HAVE TO WIN THE LAST 2 GAMES TO WIN. LET’S CLOSE THIS OUT IN 6 GAMES, SHALL WE?
    REAL TALK.

    That’s the voice of my Coach…not sounding cocky or overconfident about it,just stating the facts that if it wasn’t for Davis or Robinson performance,we could be 3-1 right now…but not important right,what it is important is to stay focus and play physical….the big 3 already know we ain’t fu****ing around…

    This is much more than Bynum being hurt, its about how pathetic our bench is{Odom}. I love the Lakers with all my heart but we need to get rid of some of the players on the bench.{Jordan Farmar, Luke Walton, Shannon Brown, DJ Mbenga} and if Lamar Odom do stop being inconsistent he can pack up his things and get the hell out of L.A. Its only the truth Laker Nation
