good over all game from Kobe. Now if we can get Ariza into it, and get Turiaf better. All will be just fine in Lakerland.

Well at least we won't be a first round exit this season. We still can't match up with the Spurs and Celtics without Bynum though.

Why not? Gasol on Duncan and Odom on KG. Neither team has a second big man that is a big threat. What am I missing?

We'll be fine against those teams. It's a toss up if those teams meet.

I think once it gets to KG that it will be the biggest test of all. KG has the talent to 'go off' like how Kobe does. And he doesn't have one of those pretty rings, Duncan's effort at times can be questioned.

Ridiculous. KG is one of the most unclutch players of all time. He's never won crap for a reason, and Minnesota did have some pretty damn good teams, he just didn't elevate his game when needed. I've never seen KG "go off" in a big game.

Incorrect, Duncan is one of the all time money players in the league and the best PF of all time. Saying "his effort can be questioned" is a ridiculous and inaccurate statement.

What I meant was the KG now has elevated his game for Boston.Yes, in the past he has not been a clutch player. HE is the main reason why there are where they are. And for SA, they are where they are because of Duncan. SA finished 1 game out of the lead, good for the number 3 seed. Even with playing a softer schedule towards the end of the year. Boston is the #1 overall, even over the Lakers, as you know. SA will get past PHX easy, but the next round is were they'll die. As for Boston, there's only 1 team that can stop them....And that team wears forum purple and gold!

Lakers should be the 2nd team to clinch a series tonight

Yeah they will. Especially with Carmelo blowing up, that team is self destructing...
