Lakers vs Warriors game thread
Steve Nash returns and brings a W with him. The Lakers were down by ten heading into the third but they some how managed to hang in there. Great game overall though, at one point in OT Kobe tripped, kept his dribble barely on one knee and with 4 seconds left on the shotclock some how got an amazing shot off and it went in, was crazy. Guy really is putting them on his back AGAIN. Nice to see World Peace step up a little bit also. Great game overall though, Warriors fans have TON to look forward too. Also Harrison Barnes had some serious clutch shots in tonight's game, they got some good rooks. Thoughts? Anyone catch the game?
even when down throughout the first 40 minutes, lakers looked like they were playing hard and thats all you can ask for. Nash was huge and so was metta and jordan hill doing the little things. This could have been one of those losses that kobe would have and should have taken the blame for due to his poor shooting, but he stayed with it and made numerous big shots late. 17 years and he doesnt hesitate no matter how tough it is going.
Its been rough as a laker fan so far, but 4 wins in a row and im feeling happy right now.
Oh, also Nash had 9 assist. For his first game back I'd say that is pretty good. I think he's going to be flourishing the rest of this season. (assuming he stays healthy)
The lakers are on the up and up. They will have a winning record from here on out. Only problem jarrett jack made Nash look like an 8th grader guarding a pro early in the game. But we finally saw a shell of the real lakers and its going to be scary
The REAL LOB CITY city is back in town as soon as Dwight and Nash get their timing figured out.
That was an amazing come back by the Lakers, but a tough loss for GState to stomach.
I didn't watch the game, but I checked out the box score.
I'm not sure how you could call this a "great game" for the Lakers in any reasonable way when Kobe hoists up 41 shots...and it wasn't even an OT game.
That is an offensive imbalance that cannot be overcome for a team to win on a regular basis.
it was an ot game. ANd the lakers beat a good team with hustle and defense. No question a great win for the lakers.
the lakers gave up 87 points through 3 quarters then held the warriors to 28 in the 4th and overtime combined. Kobe made 7 of his last 15 shots inclding a miss at the buzzer which was mostly him just making sure they got the last shot. The way the lakers responded to adversity on the road against a solid team, ill take it. Lakers can not just rely on kobe to have great games to win, and this was good to see the otehr guys make plays.
