NBA Finals Game 5 Thread

Sorry this is so late. I've been in shock (read: I'm drunk) about three straight ass-whippings from the Angels, two of which were closed by Brian Fuentes, who was never much of a threat when we saw him regularly on the Rox.

Let's have the Lakers restore hope, shall we?

Lakers!

NicJ said...

lakers only shooting 29% so far.

karen said...

This is our game to win!!

Go Lakers!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kobe and Pau are scoreless, and yet we're only down by 3.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lakers are dribbling way too much.

NicJ said...

kobe's given up on attacking, perimeter shots.

NicJ said...

that wasnt a charge.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Odom didn't even hit Pierce.

NicJ said...

either way he slid under him when odom was in the air. Odom's used to it though he always gets hammered going to the basket and never gets a whistle.

Mr. Customer said...

No offensive rhythm for LA right now.

NicJ said...

bench already killing us.

NicJ said...

we need more of that from lamar.

Mr. Customer said...

You guys are a disaster!

NicJ said...

falling apart already, credit the Celtics D.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lakers just have no offensive rhythm. Nobody knows who to pass to, where to shoot, what to do. What the hell is going on?

Mr. Customer said...

That reminds me of the good old days.

NicJ said...

hopefully sasha just goes off, someone's gotta.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If Sasha can get hot, look out.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If the refs really wanted to, they could call the Celtics for a moving screen on every possession.

NicJ said...

well, he is going to have to do it sitting on the bench.

NicJ said...

@Mlasf, thats why i found it so hilarious Doc was complaining about the lakers getting away with moving screens.

NicJ said...

maybe Ron Ron can get hot, anyone get hot please.

Ammo?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Everyone did, Nic. Everyone did.

Mr. Customer said...

Every time Ron gets a 3, I worry he'll want to take more of them.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lakers need to improve the jump shots. If they're not going to attack the paint, they need more success on the perimeter.

Fred's Brim said...

have you guys heard anything about that movie with Adam Sandler, David Spade, Chris Rock, the Makin Copies dude and the fat dude from Queens?

NicJ said...

we arent winning if rondo keeps hitting the elbow jumper.

Fred's Brim said...

a carry? what's a carry?

Fred's Brim said...

stupid Rondo

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That have to T up Rondo. I've seen guys get Ts for less.

NicJ said...

dumb move by rondo.

haha, ron with a flop

karen said...

Jeff Van Gundy is full of shit

Fred's Brim said...

Van Gundy was watching the Germany game today

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I hate you, Van Gundy.

Fred's Brim said...

Van Gundy, Brockport, NY thug

NicJ said...

RONRON!!

Fred's Brim said...

Gasol's trying to get his own T

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I find these games more interesting if the broadcast team did not include Van Gundy.

NicJ said...

I thought the shooting %'s would even out more by halftime, guess not.

Fred's Brim said...

ugh - if Boston wins, I bet they do some shit for them during our games in Boston next weekend

Mr. Customer said...

Oh, that will be something to look forward to.

Fred's Brim said...

Gasol's eephus is not working tonight

NicJ said...

pau's need to get some touches.

Fred's Brim said...

yeesh that was weak

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was a makeup call.

Mr. Customer said...

What the hell is going on?

Mr. Customer said...

Damn, hit a jumper.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Pau stinks so far.

NicJ said...

consider ourselves lucky to be only down six. This is the worst the lakers have looked all series.

Fred's Brim said...

this isn't the prettiest basketball of all time, but it sure is intense

Mr. Customer said...

W/o the turnovers by Boston, this would be a laugher.

NicJ said...

lakers just need one quarter where the are firing on all cylinders on offense.

Fred's Brim said...

Magic Johnson, I don't like your creamsicle suit

NicJ said...

well thats not a good start.

Mr. Customer said...

Fuuuuck.

NicJ said...

thats even worse.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This sucks.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

For the love of crap, hit the damn techs!

NicJ said...

i cant believe this is happening again.

Mr. Customer said...

Give me a break. We deserve to lose.

Mr. Customer said...

U-g-l-y

Fred's Brim said...

Kobe left his conscience in the lockerroom

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kobe's single-handedly keeping the Lakers alive.

NicJ said...

we are completely wasting this offensive barrage by kobe with terrible D.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

They're going back to LA down 3-2. Fucking hell.

Fred's Brim said...

Ron is playing really old out there

karen said...

I CAN'T STAND THIS...WHERE'S OUR D

NicJ said...

seriously that was a loose ball foul on Allen.

NicJ said...

kobe is just ridiculous

Mr. Customer said...

Kobe makes an impossible shot, Boston makes free-throws. No net gain.

Mr. Customer said...

Whooboy.

Fred's Brim said...

sweet jesus - that was from 30 feet out

NicJ said...

kobe was totally fouled on that last shot.

Mr. Customer said...

We're so screwed.

NicJ said...

this is like watching the '06 lakers.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I can't watch this anymore. This is just ridiculous. The Celtics would miss more shots if nobody was on the court.

NicJ said...

kobe is outta gas, this one is done.

I want odom to be wearing a different jersey next year.

Mr. Customer said...

This is over.

NicJ said...

we only have 17 fucking rebounds almost through three Q's

NicJ said...

yay kobe scored 19 points this quarter, too bad the lakers gave up 26.

Fred's Brim said...

I think Odom is pregnant

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I thought Artest was supposed to be able to defend Pierce? What the hell has this been?

Mr. Customer said...

Ron has been worse than useless.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So this is that game where Kobe was going to go off. Really making it payoff.

God fucking dammit.

NicJ said...

to be fair, ron has done a pretty good job on him besides this game.

When do the laker fans have their bring lebron to LA parade?

NicJ said...

maybe the refs dont give Lamar FT's because they know he'll just miss them.

Mr. Customer said...

It's unbelievable it's only 8.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Unbelievable. The Lakers played piss-poor defense and they only lost the quarter by one.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I mean two.

NicJ said...

again, trading baskets at this point wont work.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm finding it extremely difficult to keep calm right now.

NicJ said...

well, the lakers havent won a quarter yet, and they need to win this one by nine.

so, yeah.

NicJ said...

celtics shooting above 60 percent still

Paul said...

Someone get me a shot. Or some ammo.

Paul said...

Damn Kobe nice. Play defense fuckers!!

NicJ said...

kobe makes tough shot, celtics get a layup.

there is a pattern here.

Mr. Customer said...

Embarrassing. They play like this, we'll be watching the Celtics party at Staples...again.

NicJ said...

where the hell has shannon been?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The refs aren't even letting them play any more.

Mr. Customer said...

6

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If the Lakers make it out of Boston with this game, it will be part of Finals lore.

NicJ said...

only down by six, but it feels like 15.

NicJ said...

now would be a great time for the C's to go cold.

Paul said...

Okay. We need a good defensive set.

NicJ said...

juan pierre breaks up a no hitter in the ninth.

NicJ said...

thats the game.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That should do it.

Mr. Customer said...

There are not enough swears for the amount of sports failure I have seen this weekend. I'm out.

NicJ said...

in these two losses i have not even noticed phil was in the building.

NicJ said...

so, predictions for game 6?

Mr. Customer said...

Ask me later, Nic.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I think Becks can sum up how I feel right now.

NicJ said...

@mlasf, Old and unwanted?

Paul said...

This goes 7. Konerko up. Ducks on the pond.

NicJ said...

everyone start dusting off the "if bynum werent hurt" excuse.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Laker fans have got to step up on Tuesday. They need to show energy.

Paul said...

Fuck Gasol.

NicJ said...

lakers finally playing with heart.

Paul said...

I say trade for Ted Lilly. I could hit him when I was 17 but I have retired due to lack of picking up anyones changeup. Can we trade hot hitting GA for him?

Paul said...

Sundays usually don't seem this depressing until the fall.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Stupid Boston fans.

NicJ said...

throwing things on the court, thats so last december.

NicJ said...

screwed again.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I didn't see it hit the rim.

NicJ said...

that ball was nowhere near the rim.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Screwed by the refs again. yippee

NicJ said...

so we get a quick makeup call now right?

NicJ said...

guess not.

NicJ said...

damn i wish ron ron would have hit a shot there.

NicJ said...

fuck.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Damn.

NicJ said...

NOW, its over.

NicJ said...

If its any consolation, this is the ABSOLUTE last year the C's are in contention with this current team.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'll see you in hell, Mike Breen.

NicJ said...

why, why must you do this to me?

NicJ said...

furious rally? we are winning the Q by a point, calm down Breen.

NicJ said...

stupid stupid stupid.

NicJ said...

so this is two games where a blown call by the refs has taken away momentum in a late rally by us.

Paul said...

Well if they do it. It will be a sweet comeback.

Paul said...

Fuck you PP. You are still a bitch.

NicJ said...

i cant watch Magic praising the Celtics.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I can't believe you guys kept the TV on. It took all my will-power to not throw the remote at the set.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I case you haven't realized it, I'm not happy when my teams lose.

NicJ said...

June Gloom indeed.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If anything, I have a new catchphrase that I am fond of.

"I'll see you in hell, Mike Breen."

I'm going to be saying that a lot for the next few days.

Josh S. said...

Tonys thread?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Red won Best Play. Memphis won Best Musical. There, I've spoiled it for everyone.

NicJ said...

seriously, a three game sweep by the angels and an ass whooping by the celtics in the finals. My dogs not going out for a walk tonight because im pretty sure there is a semi out there with his name on it tonight.

NicJ said...

The lakers should go out to compton and inglewood and pass out lower bowl tickets. Then the crowd would be nuts.
