Better than nothing.

Nic j said...

i think the lakers will take this game. They have the best shot at winning this one.

Nic j said...

kobe's got his game face on.

Nic j said...

why is kobe chewing gum, going for the carefree approach?

Nic j said...

already not guarding the three point line.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Only down by 1.

Nic j said...

well, at least they arent shooting lights out tonight

Nic j said...

what happens if pau gets in foul trouble? Mbenga?

Nic j said...

there goes any offense from the center position.

Orel said...

Only down 3, feels like it should be more. Just like last game.

Orel said...

Way to get the T, Ariza.

Nic j said...

man, they just are not gonna let us play tonight.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The refs are really coming down hard on the Lakers.

Nic j said...

Bennett Salvatore loves to blow that whistle.

Nic j said...

dwight howard already has twice as many boards as the lakers.

Orel said...

Just what you want to see: jacking up long 3's at the end of the first quarter.

Nic j said...

why isnt brown in?

Orel said...

Size? I don't know.

Nic j said...

brown is bigger and a better defender, farmar tends to look for his own and jack up threes

rbnlaw said...

I'll have to check in from time to time. My daughters are watching a DVR'd episode of Jon and Kate plus 8.
Compelling TV.

Orel said...

Seems like a good strategy right now: rack up fouls.

Orel said...

"I'll have to check in from time to time. My daughters are watching a DVR'd episode of Jon and Kate plus 8.
Compelling TV."

Are they divorced yet?

Nic j said...

Haha, Jon clearly hates his life, i love watching that show just for that.

Orel said...

Scraping the barrel.

Nic j said...

bench is sucking it up, thanks for that salvatore.

Orel said...

If Kobe can just hit those fadeaways all night long, we'll win!

Orel said...

Only down four at the end of the first quarter? Could have been a lot worse.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Everytime the Lakers get a stop, I'm surprised.

Nic j said...

considering every offensive threat outside of kobe is sitting.

Orel said...

Does Catherine Zeta-Jones still have it? Yes or no.

Eric Karros said...

I think Rafar Alston signed a deal with the Devil during Monday's travel day.

Xeifrank said...

Hard to watch this game with all the fouls... especially if you are a Laker fan. But down by only four with the three big men in foul trouble isn't too bad.
vr, Xei

Eric Karros said...

By 'it' do you mean Michael Douglas?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Phil just got fined there.

Orel said...

"Some bogus calls out there, I thought." —Phil Jackson

That'll be $25,000, please!

Nic j said...

haha, theres a fine for phil jackson.

Nic j said...

he is right though.

Nic j said...

farmar with his normal terrible D

Orel said...

"Vujacic's nightmare shooting"

Nic j said...

How was Howard in foul trouble in almost every game for the cleveland series and now he is getting like 2-3 a game?

Sasha is building a house out there.

Orel said...

Guess Powell won't be taking any more shots.

Orel said...

Hope Kobe is eating his Wheaties.

Nic j said...

powell usually has a nice midrange shot, but i guess that comes with not playing any game time for like two weeks.

Nic j said...

shooting 36%, not a way to win a game.

Xeifrank said...

Laker reserves not shooting worth a lick. How much is a lick worth? Guess it depends what you...
vr, Xei

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

These 3-point misses are killing me. During the off-season the Lakers have to look for a legit 3-point shooter.

Nic j said...

they had one, but traded him away.

Orel said...

Lickability?

Nic j said...

does my pen have writeability?

Xeifrank said...

Isn't Sasha's regular season 3pt percentage pretty good?
vr, Xei

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I prefer drinkability.

Nic j said...

X, not since last year.

Orel said...

GORTAT

Nic j said...

if we're gonna play crap defense we have to make the ball go in the hoop.

Orel said...

Down 10 points. That was fast.

Nic j said...

browns finally in.

Orel said...

Hedo finally missed.

Nic j said...

kobe's still working on that gum.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm about ready to give up on this game. The offense and defense are both stagnant.

Nic j said...

you cant give up on a finals game.

Nic j said...

well unless you are the lakers.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

There's also Kwame Brown.

Nic j said...

has anyone noticed that the rockies have won eight in a row?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

In response to that Clippers commercial.

Nic j said...

Reddick A solid defender?!? yeah, right.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This is killing me.

Orel said...

Lakers are getting crushed. And yet are only down 11.

Nic j said...

a T from the coaching staff, maybe we will get some calls now.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Yep. This game is a loss.

Nic j said...

gotta hit those freebies.

Orel said...

Finally a 3!

Nic j said...

they are only down 11 and its not even the half.

and, we have kobe on the team.

Nic j said...

those refs aint helping though

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Rashard Lewis has no reason to complain.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This is the most frustrating game I've seen in a while.

Penos Cabell said...

This has been one of the worst officiated games in the series

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I really don't care about what Dwight Howard thinks about the trophy.

Orel said...

I keep saying this, but we're only down [fill in the blank].

Nic j said...

this is way too many fouls on both ends, let them play.

Orel said...

If the Lakers can keep it within five at the half, it'll be a miracle.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

A single-digit lead would be a miracle.

Nic j said...

howard is getting whatever he wants.

Orel said...

Howard is going to do that little hook all night long. 12-point lead.

Orel said...

Sweet backhand block by Kobe.

Orel said...

Howard can do no wrong tonight.

Nic j said...

this is getting pretty ugly.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The Lakers are doing everything wrong.

Nic j said...

im starting to feel like we are the Dallas Mavericks West.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't know what Hedo is complaining about. He's up by fucking 12, what the hell is one foul going to do.

Orel said...

Fisher is cold.

Orel said...

There's no whining in basketball! Oh wait, there is.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Like I said, everytime the Lakers get a stop I'm surprised.

patm14 said...

Pablo Ozuna just got suspended 50 games due to abnormally high levels of testosterone. Just throwing it out there. GO LAKERS!

Orel said...

Down 12 at the half. Pretty bad.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Like the end of Round 1 of Pacquiao v. Hatton.

Steve Sax said...

Great first half!

Nic j said...

Lets hope the second half is better.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I want Phil to talk about last year's Game 4 and try to inspire them.

Nic j said...

if we keep playing like this we are going to have alot of spare purple and gold confetti.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

100

Steve Sax said...

I really hate these off-days. Except for the puzzles.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Why must Bill Russell always align himself with the enemy?

Nic j said...

im waiting for Plaschke's article demanding that Ozuna is kicked out of baseball.

karina said...

Thanks for the Ozuna news. That's sad.

Steve,the puzzles are almost like the best thing since bread came sliced.

Go Lakers!

Nic j said...

do you think howard has any shirts with sleeves?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Phil Jackson better be kidnapping the players' cats and dogs for motivation right now. I am Lugash!

Orel said...

"do you think howard has any shirts with sleeves?"

If I had guns like that, I'd show them off too.

Orel said...

"Phil Jackson better be kidnapping the players' cats and dogs for motivation right now. I am Lugash!"

Nice! Even I had to look that one up.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Phil to Kobe: Cartwheel out of Amway arena, go to parents in Philly, and tell them to STOP WASTING MY TIME WITH FAILURE CHILD!

Nic j said...

"Nice! Even I had to look that one up."

Ken Levine had to look that one up. OBSCURE.

good one.

Orel said...

Don't know what to make of the Rockies' eight straight.

Giants lost.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lugash isn't that obscure, is he? I quote him all the time.

Nic j said...

there schedule wasnt super easy. either. the cards and the brewers.

Nic j said...

here we go again, good luck gents.

Orel said...

Fish warming up?

Nic j said...

turk with the blatant push.

Nic j said...

were getting nothing from ariza tonight.

Orel said...

Howard is still being a monster.

Nic j said...

maybe i was wrong.

Orel said...

Ariza says take that, Nic!

Orel said...

Down to 7!

Nic j said...

wait, we are getting nothing from Pau, Bynum, Fish, Farmar, Brown, Vujacic, and the rest.

maybe that will work.

Orel said...

Down to 6!

Nic j said...

i woke him up!

Orel said...

Beautiful by Turkoglu.

Orel said...

Down to 5!

Orel said...

The very definition of chipping away.

Nic j said...

they dont call him the Turkish Jordan for nothing.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Very good defensive rotations. They are preventing the fast-break, and that's throwing Orlando off.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Actually, they do call him the Turkish Jordan for nothing. As in, there is no competition for the title.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nice awareness by Pau.

Orel said...

Kobe should have posterized Hedo there.

Nic j said...

4 on turk! thats a good thing.

Orel said...

Down to 4!

rbnlaw said...

This game should not be this close. Why did the Magic stop playing defense?

Orel said...

Down to 1!

Nic j said...

He is on FIRE

rbnlaw said...

Love that former Bruin!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I love Ariza right now.

Nic j said...

wow, bynum got bailed out on that one.

Orel said...

That was close.

rbnlaw said...

Bad foul. Saved the violation.

Nic j said...

knotted!

Orel said...

Up by 1!

rbnlaw said...

Wow. Did not see this coming.

Orel said...

This is like a reversal of the second quarter.

Nic j said...

the ball is bouncing our way!!

rbnlaw said...

Why are NBA refs so bad? How could he not see the tip out of bounds?

Orel said...

Wow, Bynum is taking (and making) shots.

Nic j said...

oh come on

rbnlaw said...

4 on Bynum

Orel said...

Damn, four on Bynum.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was a bogus foul

Orel said...

Nice hustle, Fish!

Nic j said...

alright we got the MO lets keep it going!

Orel said...

I enjoy Jeff Van Gundy's bluntness.

rbnlaw said...

Heads up play by the Fish.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Van Gundy can digress, but he calls it like he sees it.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I say Moses Malone.

Nic j said...

Rhianna, stop distracting bynum.

rbnlaw said...

Chris Tucker looks larger than usual.

Orel said...

Quick: Rihanna or Elin Woods?

rbnlaw said...

I agree with MLASF. Are they bringing the original Millionaire format back? That would be nice.

Nic j said...

fish is still missing.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Back2back 3-seconds.

Nic j said...

pack up the tent howard no more camping.

rbnlaw said...

Elin Nordegren. . .not Mrs. Woods.

Orel said...

Fish is waiting for the fourth quarter.

Orel said...

I hate it when Kobe loses the handle.

rbnlaw said...

Somebody woke up the Magic.

Nic j said...

stop shooting fisher.

fanerman said...

Nice shot Candy.

Orel said...

"Quick: Rihanna or Elin Woods?"

The correct answer is: Yes please!

Nic j said...

damn odom hits the shot even with the reset.

rbnlaw said...

BIG 3

Nic j said...

i hate you JJ

Orel said...

Run 'n' gun!

rbnlaw said...

Concur, Nic. I hate all former Dookies.

Orel said...

Gettin' chippy!

Nic j said...

damn kobe grabs a board from superman!!

Orel said...

Love how Kobe just commandeered that rebound.

Orel said...

Hope it doesn't come down to free throws.

Nic j said...

damn

Orel said...

Let's keep the lead to start the fourth.

Orel said...

Should we be settling for so many threes?

rbnlaw said...

Live by the 3, die by the 3

Nic j said...

haha an anti ref chant?

rbnlaw said...

That went in?

Orel said...

What was the crowd chanting?

Nic j said...

alright keep it going lakers, this is YOUR game.

Nic j said...

i thought it was ref you suck.

Orel said...

That looked just like Jordan's shot off Utah!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Seriously, I don't know what they're complaining about. All I've seen is a missed call on J.J. Redick. That's as close as the refs have come to giving calls to the Lakers.

fanerman said...

Orel: Lakers suck.

Or Yankees suck.

I couldn't tell.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Damn, it was Goodwin.

rbnlaw said...

Cheap shot by the Millionaire people.

Nic j said...

MLSF, hopefully its another "Goodwin" at the end of the 4th.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I hope the WW2BM is like the original. None of this new rules crap they use with Viera. I want fastest-finger back too.

Orel said...

Alley-oop!

fanerman said...

My heart stopped on that alley oop late-up.
