Spurs @ Lakers
Anyone else see Kobe try to make a statement and have a big game?
Or maybe Kobe will try too hard and shoot his team out of it.
Could go either way.
his last game he was unslefish with 11 assists and was looking for teammates and he got his 32 points.
As for tonight, dont care who does what as long as the lakers win.
Everything seems to be going wrong for Ron Artest.
wow, great shot my mcneal to end the quarter. COnsidering the lakers turnovers, down 4 aint bad.
A thing of beauty. What a year he is having, it is a feel good story when you see an undrafted rookie like him getting minutes on a great team.
Ron Artest needs to have a good game... BAD.
ron is playing more aggressive then he has any game this year. It might not be pretty tonight but long term i think it will only help.
They better start guarding George Hill.
disagree with reggie miller when he says people think of the celtics, heat, lakers and magic when it comes to contenders but noone ever thinks about the spurs. Spurs have been getting all kinds of love, not sure who he has been talking to.
right... don't buy that "under-the-radar" thing the Spurs are feeling because I know Kobe and the rest of the league know that the Spurs are still a threat...
They've been getting attention, but to nowhere near the extent that the Celtics or Heat or Lakers have
now miller says the lakers should be scared the score is tied becasue they are letting the spurs hang around and they cant feel good about that. What? the lakers havent been beating any top teams and the spurs are the best team in the league, i just want a win forget blowouts, lol.
heat, celtics and lakers get more attention but not more respect. They get more attention becasue of the media markets, but nobody is sleeping on san antonio this year or disresepecting them.
I think that's what Miller was referring too, is the fans and media weren't speaking about the Spurs as much as the other contenders, of course the rest of the league would know there a threat, but a lot of people do still think the Spurs are too old to win the championship, that's what he was referring to i think
I loved Miller as a basketball player, but I don't really like him in his tv job.
lakers didnt get the rebounds down the stretch and thats really all it came down to.
i liked Ron Artest's energy in the game, he played like he had a point to prove
There were so many tipped balls in the final 2 minutes in favor of the Spurs.
Agreed llperez, they gave the Spurs four chances to win at the end, Manu's three, Tony Parker's runner, Duncan's fadeaway and finally McDysses' tip in which was what won it for the Spurs.
They have got younger and they will be a problem come playoff time. Lakers might need a trade. It is the regular season, but something does not seem right about them. I don't like their depth either.
They dont need a trade. They just need the Playoffs to start
