big game for both teams
I might be far from accurate when saying this, but it seems like hickson always goes big for laker games, laker killer.
I think many players are going to get geared up for this matchup on the Blazers team...sorry that Wes is playing...he is always ready to play against Kobe.
Batum/Sasha are going to have to step up big and contain Kobe...Lillard is going to have to make Nash look 39 and our bigs have to battle against the bigs for rebound control. These are all keys to a victory!
Another key will be the bench...both benches suck and whoever does the best in bench scoring might just win.
im worried about dwight. even in a down year, we cannot match up with him.
both teams have their big 4 playing tonight. with crappy benches. edge goes to us in permitter play while they have the edge in paint... itll be interesting to watch.
On the plus side, Lillard could have a huge game. Kobe may be guarding him which would change my outlook somewhat, but he also isn't quite as good of a defender as he used to be (still very good). If Nash is forced to guard Lillard, then he could have a huge game though.
I agree on Dwight... if he shoots free throws like he did against us opening night he will be tough... Using all fouls tonight unless he proves otherwise... he should take some lessons from Meyers on how to shoot from the line haha
Lakers in the Forum err Staples whats not to love.... This would be such a big win for our young squad... Hickson is a dif player now too.
I hope Lillard doesn't wait too long to be aggressive, he is doing a great job on getting everyone touches but in these big games he might have to produce points early.
Defend the rim to win... we gotta dig deep... tip off time
no good tonight
Ah well...The Lakers are starting to play like they were predicted in the beginning of the year...we would have to be on our best game to beat them in the Staples Center.
freeland looked good tonight.
He needs more minutes.
love me some barton!
Agree about Freeland---I almost wouldn't mind Hickson going out again so they are forced to play him more.
