LA Lakers Lead Series 3-2 Series Breakdown


Thu May 14, 2009 - Game 6 LA Lakers @ Houston 9:30 pm EDT ESPN (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/boxscore?gid=2009051213)




The shots stopped falling, the passes that worked in Game 4 were turnovers in Game 5, and every loose ball or whistle seemed to go the Los Angelesí Lakers way.

Two days after one of the most stirring victories in franchise history, the Houston Rockets suffered one of their worst postseason defeats and now face elimination Thursday in Game 6 of their Western Conference semifinal series with the Lakers.

ďWe know itís time to man-up or else itís going to be golf time,Ē said forward Shane Battier(notes), held to five points in Game 5 after scoring 23 in Houstonís 99-87 win Sunday.

The Lakersí 118-78 win on Tuesday matched Houstonís most lopsided playoff loss. The Rockets say donít count them out just yet, pointing to their propensity for bouncing back after embarrassing defeats.

I expect the Lakers to take this game, which will advance them to the WCF. Don't count out the Rockets though. I'm sure they will come out with heart and energy on their home floor.

The Rockets can make it a close game. I think the Rockets win by 2. If this goes back to Los Angeles, L.A. will win. They will have to play a well rested, very talented Nuggets team though, so they better close it out Thursday.

I want the Rockets to push it to game 7 for many reasons, but I say the Lakers close out the series winning by 8 points in a tight game until down the strech when Kobe and Gasol take over. (mostly kobe, gasol gets an open dunk bc Kobe gets tripled lol)

After a 40 pt loss I'm a bit skeptical too, but I'm still confident in my team. Lakers were a bit skeptical also after their loss, it's just the shoe on the other foot.

Rockets win by 15 on their home court.

I disagree. I don't think the Lakers were skeptical after losing 1 game. Maybe after they lost to the Rockets without Yao, but losing 1 game wasn't a big deal when the Lakers were clearly the better team overall.

Lakers 120-Rockets 72 :D

Let's be realistic now. Being that it's at home and the Rocket's have to win to move on, I don't think the Lakers win by 48 points. I think it's more like Rockets 250-lakers 100. :D

the houston rockets have showed heart, not many teams could withstand losing their so-called star midway through the season, trading away their starting point guard, having first round woe's stuck on their backs, losing the backup center in the first round, losing the starting center in the second round etc.. etc.. going up against the 'best team' in the NBA (didnt really impress me) and we move on win or lose. i'd like to go ahead and wish the laker fan who didnt have to resort to arrogant and snide remarks the best of luck tonight, i think you would agree that these houston rockets put up more of a fight than most expected and im sure we'll meet again sooner, rather than later.

I was kidding about the score. The Lakers are gona have to fight hard to win this game. I just hope nothing crazy happens like a fight or any of our guys showboating if we win. We havent earned that right because of the effort of the first 4 game. The circumstances pretty much gave us this series. Whatever happens thanks for the series Rockets. You fough with pride and heartg

05-14-2009, 09:48 PM
I am proud of the Rockets for the effort put forth in this series. They went down for the count losing Yao after game 3, and yet they played their hearts out in Game 4 and shocked everyone. For them to take the Lakers this far without Yao is amazing. I look forward to next year just to see what happens.

All I can say is the Lakers have a better chance against Denver if they put Houston away tonight. If the Rockets spoil it for them and push it to a deciding game 7, then the Lakers are gonna have hell with Denver.

It's been a great series regardless, and I applaud both teams. :clap:

It makes sense when you think about it. I mean, if your big guys are all about half a foot taller than their defenders, and the defense is forced to collapse when you throw the ball down low (or give up baskets), then really why would you give them the ball? It just makes more sense to shoot contested jump shots...:rolleyes:

There are alot of stupid people, I'll quote technique "So if your message aint **** then fuh the records you sold, cause if you go platinum its got nothing to do with luck, it just means that a million people are stupid as fuhk".

I've got a DVD of him live at Abbey Road with a strings section, it was recorded after Late Registration, it's awesome (I actually typed amazing then, but I had to change it :p). I think he's a really talented musician, I just don't think he's living up to his ability with his newer stuff though...

Let's not forget the horrible flagrant fouls, technicals and ejections Ron has gotten all series. It's the norm. The refs were erring on the side of precaution. It was an overreaction, but whatever. It's two people with bad reputations.

No. I wasn't saying it after the last game. But everyone was saying "let's see how the respond in game 6"...including me. Well, how have the responded? Like a heartless team.

If they are getting stomped on the road by the Rockets without Yao...I can only imagine what the Nuggets will do in Denver and a mile high. The Lakers just aren't consistent enough or tough enough to be a championship team. I was going to give them the benefit of the doubt that game 4 was a debacle and a fluke...but evidently it isn't.

The only positive I can see for the Lakers is that they're in a better position with PFs on key players than the Rockets. That could translate into a comeback. Hopefully not.

The only way we're going to draw more fouls is by going to the basket, but we don't seem to want to do that. Kobe has had a few drives, and Pau saw the ball a couple of times near the end of the first quarter, but besides that it's just jump shots.

It never makes sense to do that, especially when you have such a size advantage inside.

I don't mean to take anything away from Houston though. Right now they're just out hustling the Lakers, playing as if their lives depended on it. The Lakers seem to think good things will just come their way by showing up...
