They need to play game 3 like it is 1-1. For it very likely could have been.

I'll be happy if Lakers just take one game in Orlando. Gives us two shots to close it out at home.

We escaped with a win protecting home court.

I can't believe how open Courtney Lee was at the end of regulation , and I can't believe he missed it :nervous2:

Will take it !!!

Orlando really woke up tonight in game 2 and it's just gonna get harder in their house.

Gotta come out Stronger !!! :weight:


2 MORE TO GO!!! LET'S GET IT LAKERS!!!!

That's gotta be devastating for Lee on how he could've made it a 1-1 tie, instead their down 2-0.

Back from the game. What a crazy atmosphere a Finals game is. And with the way it was tonight, the only thing that could have topped it would have been a Lakers buzzer beater.

I can honestly say this was the first time I've been at a sporting event of any kind where my stomach was turning in every way imaginable and where I couldn't feel my legs because of nerves.

I knew the last play in regulation would be a lob. Thought it would have been for Dwightand when I saw Lee streaking to the basket, my heart dropped. I thought it was over and was speechless when he missed it.

Gotta give it up to Pau Pau tonight. What a performance in the overtime session.

Odom, played the way he is capable of playing every single night.

Wasn't the cleanest game, but I'll take it. 2-0 series lead. Lets go into Orlando and make it 3-0.

Did anyone see how much AMMO was getting into it on the bench during the latter stages of the fourth and OT?

This was definitely a "leaves you hanging at the edge of your seat", type game.


2-0 is not enough! 4-0 or Lakers in 6 please! Boys need to rest up and keep their eye in the prize. :juggle:


That juggle smiley is soooo cool. haha

Did we get so much hate during our 3peat time? Or it's just the current?

Anyway, funny pic:

There is no glory without pain/suffering.

Win game 3, close those guys out. Win the trophy!

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Magic will come out stronger and they will shoot the ball better. We should be ready, play with more energy and keep shutting down their 3pt artillery with our tight defense. 2-0 is great, 1-1 is really bad...

GO LAKERS!!!!

lamar is really good!
so is Paul

This is how I feel about last night's game...in the words of Kobe Bryant:

"We blew a lot of assignments tonight -- a lot of assignments -- and we still managed to get a win,"

I'm still pissed that Andrew still can't seem to play without getting into foul trouble every game.

Yeh, we got lucky.

Ariza didn't shoot the ball well at all last night and Hedo and Rashard scorched our defense.

We couldn't capitalize off of Orlando's 20 turnovers...if we had then this game could have been a blowout as well.



Kobe needs to take better care of the basketball too.

Pau Gasol is GONE

All that and we still managed a win.

Orlando was CLOSE to evening the series but as GP and Webber said on NBA tv last night:

"Close only counts in horseshoes and hand granades."

Yeh, we still managed a win. The key thing here is to not make these mistakes again.
