What could possibly go wrong?

Steve Sax said...

Well, for one thing, that little red arrow on the left could end up getting a lot bigger once the big blue arrow forgets to show up and spots a 12-point lead in the first quarter.

Eric Karros said...

Is that forecast going to self-update as the game progresses?

Orel said...

No, although you can click on the graphic to go to the page it's from.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ugh, they're already forcing 3-pointers and the game just started.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I just found out that Andruw Jones ranks 12th in All-Star voting.

Steve Sax said...

23-23 in the first

Steve Sax said...

Andruw must have a very fast internet connection.

karina said...

Or a very large circle of family and friends.

Steve Sax said...

25-25, end 1st

Steve Sax said...

Oh, Andruw has a very large circle all right, karina.

It's called his waist!

Eric Karros said...

Beautiful high-arcing release from Farmar. If the basket were 2 feet to the left it would have been swish!.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The Lakers just need to clean up the defensive glass.

Eric Karros said...

I believe the Nuggets have the highest tat-to-player ratio in the NBA.

Denver up by 2.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

EK - Andersen can account for most of that.

Eric Karros said...

Andersen sets the bar, but between both teams, I think the four most tatted players are all Nuggets: Andersen, Carmelo, K-Mart, and JR Smith.

Eric Karros said...

And Billups might be #5.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Sasha Vujacic with a big-time three! Tied at halftime 56-56.

Eric Karros said...

K-Mart puts Denver up by 5.

And actually Dahntay Jones is the 5th most tatted on either team. Billups might be 6. So I think the 6th-most tatted Nugget has more tats than any Laker.

Ooh as I typed that, Nene gets his 4th foul fouling Ariza on a 3.

Eric Karros said...

Now Bynum has 4.

Penos Cabell said...

What an ugly shot Kobe put up.

Penos Cabell said...

76-76 end of the 3rd.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This game is close.

Penos Cabell said...

Can the Lakers play some defense>?
Thats what it's gonna come down to.

Penos Cabell said...

Lamar banged on the Birdman!!

Penos Cabell said...

slight momentum swing here in the Lakers favor.

Orel said...

So far, so good in the 4th quarter.

Andrew said...

Penos has reached Keith Hernandez status on the comment board at SOSG!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Like what Mychal Thompson said, the Lakers just have to hustle.

Penos Cabell said...

lol, Andrew.

Penos Cabell said...

They really want to hurt Kobe.

They don't want Kobe to get mad.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So far, the Lakers are executing on the glass, not allowing Denver to get any second chances.

Penos Cabell said...

Please don't give it all back.

Penos Cabell said...

goodbye!

Penos Cabell said...

Hit the showers Nene.

Orel said...

Nene Nene Nene Nene hey hey hey goodbye

Penos Cabell said...

Nice Orel!

Penos Cabell said...

This game is getting physical. It's good to see the Lakers blocking shots.

Penos Cabell said...

Lakers take a 3-2 series lead.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

LAKERS WIN!

Andrew said...

WE WANT TACOS!

Orel said...

Another PHEW game.
