The calls are so one-sided in this game it's not funny. The Lakers can't get to the line and Suns are living at the line. The refs have done a great job of keeping the Suns up in this game. You aren't going to win games when the free throw disparity is so much in favor of the home team. Every time the Lakers go on the road, the other team shoots 2x as many free throws as they do. It's downright ridiculous the way the officials are so biased when it comes to the Lakers playing on the road.

just naming it would be of no use since you either not have seen the play happen, or you won't know which play i'm talking about, however i'll humor you.

2 fouls from lamar odom should not have happened. Both of them were by amare driving in, and both of them odom clearly just touched the ball but was called a foul.

andrew bynum in the first quarter, he got fouled on one of the plays that was a good call, the other one were bynum had his hands up and amare drove in like a guy having a seizure and bynum get's called.

As for the other side, i could count myriad times on how much players like odom, pau or bynum were fouled on the inside but now i feel like watching the game since halftime is almost over so peace :)

Suns doing a damn good job holding onto the ball. 4 turnovers to the Lakers 11. Which, like the free throw discrepancy, is because the refs are fixing the game to extend the series. Right, Laker fans?

It can also be said that the suns shooting and defense were dreadful in the first 2 games and still had the game tied going into the 4th quarter last game. The longer the series goes the worse it is for the Lakers because of how much time their starters play in every game.

He's such an enigma. Someone, I forget who, was saying how the Lakers should feel confident about their chances because Bynum wasn't really anything worth talking about in 2008. The thing is, he still really isn't. He sits on the bench more than he plays. I really just don't get it. It's a recurring theme: he sits on the bench come playoff time far more than he actually plays. I can't consider him something to be worried about until he shows otherwise.

I know the Suns won this game, but when you throw up a zone for basically 3 quarters of the game, LA is obviously gonna go through a practice and figure it out, I actually thought they did okay against it when they attacked, but they just fell in love with the 3.

As usual it takes the home team 20 or more free-throw attempts than the road Lakers to beat them.

In two of three Laker playoff losses, the winner took double the free-throw attempts. And in the other, they took 20+

Wow, I just heard the "We want Boston" chants on the highlight reel. That has got to be one of the funniest things I've heard in a while. Imagine the Magic crowd somehow forcing a Game 5 and hear them chanting "We Want LA". :facepalm:

Suns fans are gettin annoyin and uncreative, and Robert Sarver is on the verge of getting a mudhole stepped in his arse by Derek Fisher.

LOL Yeah dude, I can live with Beat LA, or Kobe sucks, but you just won one game and they are already chanting "We Want Boston"

:facepalm:

I don't think they want a taste of Boston.

I would think at this point you need to consider giving some of Frye's 15 or so minutes per game to Amundson

That nose is JACKED. That's hilarious, love that guy.

I liked Pau and Kobe's post-game comments. Dead on point about not breaking down their zone, too many turnovers, and "giving them too many free throws" [not, 'they got too many'. gave them too many]. Some of the PSD warriors here might wanna take note --

Phil is the opposite, he'd say that the Suns played one of the best free throw defenses in recent memory.

Nash has a job as an analyst once he retires. He'd instantly be the best player analyst out there. Reminds me of Kenny Florian in the UFC, somehow.

At least that was funny as ****.

Why are some Laker fans so pissed about this loss?? I understand we wanted a sweep I did too but its the playoffs....the WCF rarely is there sweeps in this stage of the playoffs.

Phoenix is a good team, and very capable of winning game 4. As LA fans, gotta relax, just one game... Phoenix still has to win 3 out of 4, and I don't know if LA has lost 4 outta 5 since they got Gasol

They want to keep pace w/ BOS. I know I come off as a cocky Celts fan in saying that, but I don't mean to. It's just a competitive thing going into the inevitable finals match up.

I'm not very upset. The Suns are too good to be swept. Some teams are too good to be swept! And I didn't want my Lakers to go on a 10 game winning streak into the finals. I want them to experience a loss, and bounce back for it. :)

The Lakers will close this series out in 5 games, there is no reason to panic about 1 loss.

Pau played horrendous defense and that is what cost the Lakers the game (Fisher getting torched didn't help either, but we expect that from him).
