If we play like we did in Game 3, we will NOT win this.

Hope the offense gets back on track and the ball moves a lot more than it did in Game 3. What must be maintained is the Lakers' defensive mentality.

I hope Kobe doesnt struggle like he did in Games 2 & 3. It was pretty tough watching him miss shot after shot. We definately needa watch out from Ray Ray. He won't always choke.

Celtics were down 1-2 against the cavs after being blownout by 29 at home. Just wanted to share that.

Huge game as always, pumped and confident. Hopefully Kobe gets his shot back, Pau gets touches, Ron and Fish hit threes, Odom shows up and bench contributes. It's gonna be one [expletive]ing craphole but hopefully LA comes out with a W.

Time to flip the script on these fools after them beating us at home game 4 in 2008 to pretty much win the championship by going up 3-1. We're winning game 4, then closing it out in 6!

I'll be cheering for us, but I think we drop this one and get game 5. But you never know, let's go LAKERS!

I like our chances in game 4.

I think the 'stars' will play their roles and we will overcome with some kobe shots down the stretch.

That has absolutely no impact on this series just so you know.

Keys to win Game 4:

DEFENSIVELY
1. Contain Celtics furious start, specially in the first quarter.
2. Protect the 3pt line, no double teams.
3. Box out and win the rebounding battle.

OFFENSIVELY
1. Good ball movement, more triangle less iso.
2. Pound the ball inside, feed Gasol and Bynum as much as possible.
3. Good shot selection, no jumpshooting team, attack the basket.

I like our chances, but I really expect the Lakers to lose this one by a close margin and then steal another one in Boston in Game 5.

GO LAKERS!

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

If the Lakers win this game, it is 100% over in 5, so in effect this is a close out game. If the Celtics lose you can guarantee they will tank game 5, knowing full well that if they win game 5 they have to get on a plane and fly out to Los Angeles for the ultimate pay back in game 6, much like they gave to the Lakers in game 6 last year We knew we were headed into a slaughter after game 5 in LA. Nobody wants to go through that, after the Lakers lost game 4 in '08, I wanted them to lose game 5 because I knew the series was over. Game 4 is a close out game, and should be treated as such, get on them and do not let them get back up. Obviously its going to be a big big test, but this is when you win a championship. The biggest hurdle has been cleared, we aren't scared of them, we aren't out physicaled by them, and we haven't lost a game on their home court since Game 6 of '08. The Lakers have had 16 and 17 point leads in this series already. We learn how to hold a lead like that, and this series is on ice. Closing time in Boston on Thursday night in front of their fans, gotta get this one.

Pretty much. I'm expecting a big game from Kobe and a much more quiet game from KG. Let's build a lead and maintain it.
