How inconsistent is this team?
I am not even looking at the box score as I write this because I don’t really need to. The Lakers did not show up again on the road. The Lakers got outplayed again. But I’m not too worried because in game 7, the Lakers are going to do what they did in game 5.
Laker fans are ready for this huge Sunday afternoon game! Kobe will not let this team lose… Gasol will not play this soft… the Lakers will take care of the ball like if isn’t a hot potato and Phil will lead this team into a Game 1 Tuesday night vs. the Denver Nuggets.
Rather than dwell on this loss, let’s look forward to Sunday’s first Game 7 in at least seven years…
Top 3 Laker performer that need to show up Saturday -
1) Kobe must come through. Kobe doesn’t need 40 points, but he needs to show up in the assists and defense categories.
2) Pau has to dominate the paint. I expect nothing less than 20 and 10 from Pau.
3) OUR POINT GUARDS MUST DO SOMETHING. We cannot win if our point guards continue to play terrible basketball, it is that simple.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Tonight, the guards let us down defensively.
What to Look for Next Game: AN INTENSE GAME AND STAPLES WILL BE LOUD!
