And there it is fellas... The winner of the last 5 games against the Jazz. Oh well, bring on the draft and free agency.

Quote:
If you wanted to know who the Lakers preferred to play in the 1st round . . . you just needed to watch tonights game. They are playing really hard with nothing to play for.

Quote:
I hate Vujacic. I just feel like punching him whenever I see his face.

Quote:
i think with a little physical play like boston last year, the jazz can give the lakers a run for their money pushing it to 7 games

**end dream thought now**

Quote:
I guess the sweep starts at Los Angeles.

Quote:
Lakers - 137

Utah - 88

Quote:
I'm speachless, i don't see any light at the end of the tunnel I think the Jazz win game 3 but lose four and 5.I feel Sloan will either retire or get fired.

Quote:
I thought Jazz had a chance a week ago but Jazz play to their Defenseless potential tonight and get drilled by Lakers. Its a sweep!!!! Jazz players have no heart!!!!

Quote:
Can Karl Malone still play?

Mutumbo at age 42 still is playing.

Bring the Mailman out of retirement.

Quote:
If the Jazz manage to win one of their home games and don't get completely embarrassed in the other 4 it will be a success. Unfortunately, though, we're probably looking at a blowout sweep.

Quote:
Why, no. No I do not.

Quote:
Not only do I not think the Jazz can beat the Lakers, I expect it to be a really, really embarassing series for Jazz fans.

Quote:
Um, that would be.....no.

Quote:
This is a joke right?

Quote:
I dont care anymore if we get swept, It is a foregone conclusion. I just want laker fans in here by the hundreds telling us how dirty our team is and how one of our players should be banned from the sport.

I want to see the lakers bleed. I want to see a bone poking through the skin. Ours ___ssy's we call players DERON INCLUDED wants to be Kobes friend. THey need to go in looking to kill somebody. Who cares if we dont have the talent.

I am dead sick of Deron being everybodys friend. I bet he carried the bags during the olympics, not because he had too, but because he wanted too.

Quote:
Could they beat them? On paper, it's possible. On the court, no way in hell.

Quote:

When will Sloan make adjustments

it's obvious memo boozer sap cant guard odom

odom abuses them.

last year he dominated utah. this year he also did it if i'm not mistaken he even grabbed 20 rebounds Shocked in 1 game. yet sloan refuses to adjust defensive assignments/schemes

will sloan finally make an adjustment when jazz are down 3-0

seriously sloan DO Something.

Quote:
Quote:
Will you finally stop making new threads that just belong in the game thread anyway????

this isnt about the game thread

this is about odom raping jazz since playoff last year

and if sloan does not make adjustments the raping will go on for atleast the next 4 games.

i dont put this in the game thread because this isnt about this particular game

just lamar odom in general raping jazz

Quote:
Jazz have no one to match up against Odom. No one that can stop Gasol and Bynum from posting up. And no one that can stop Kobe once he decides to take over the game. With the exception of PG, the Jazz are outmatched at every position.

  1. Gasol > Boozer

  2. Bynum >> Okur

  3. Kobe >>>>>>>>>>>>>Brewer

  4. Ariza > Miles or Hapring

  5. Fisher <<<< Williams

And I'd take the Laker's bench.

Odom >>> Millsap

Vujacic >> Korver

Farmar vs. Knight - tossup

Walton vs. AK/Harp. Give this one to AK, but not by much as of late.

Quote:
Least excited I've ever been for the playoffs... Sad

...hold me.

Quote:
So... who do you think the Lackers will be playing in the 2nd round?

Quote:
I view this upcoming series with the same feeling I have had when I have gone to bed knowing that in the morning I was taking my dog to the vet for The Shot. It will be sad, but at least the suffering will be over quickly.

Quote:
.....the best we can hope for....and I mean the absolute best, is extending this series to 6 games with two home wins.....and hope that maybe Bryant sprains an ankle or Bynum messes up his knee, so that the Lakers will not win the West or the NBA title. I just don't like them, do you? Those cheap shots on Deron last night were disgraceful! I don't mind tellin ya all...I hope the lakers crash and burn.

Quote:
*beep* this *beep* of a team. Even if we take one in L.A., the Lakers are too good on the road to stumble in both Games 3 and 4. This will be over in 5 games at most and thus the reason why I will not be getting cable to watch the Jazz--the first time in over 10 years. I'll just stream the games in *beep* quality. Why do I need clarity to see us getting blown out of the water by third quarter's end?

Quote:
- What do you think are the chances of a team like the Jazz ending up beating the Lakers without homecourt?

  • Well, that's difficult to say. I mean, we don't really...

  • Hit me with it! Just give it to me straight! I’ve cheered for a long, long time for the Jazz. The least you can do is level with me. What are our chances?

  • Not good.

  • You mean, not good like one out of a hundred?

  • I'd say more like one out of a million.

[pause]

  • So you're telling me there's a chance... Yeaaahh!!!

Quote:

Quote:
What time is game 1?

Likely 1:30 MDT.

My guess is the sched will look like this:

Game 1 4/19 1:30pm

Game 2 4/22 8:30pm

Game 3 4/24 8:30pm

Game 4 4/26 1:30pm

Game 5 4/28 8:30pm

Vacation

Quote:
I am amazed that some ppl here notice and marvel at the Laker's strengths only after a thorough thrashing of the Jazz. You guys need to watch NBA more. They have been this good for 2 seasons now.

Quote:
All bad. Jazz = no chance. I was at the game...and Laker fans were offering condolences. And I found myself appreciative of that.

WTF HAPPENED TO THIS SEASON?

Quote:
The Lakers are a really good team. They have shooters. They have skilled bigs. They have Kobe. They are quick. They are deep. They play defense. They rebound the ball. They move the ball really well. They have a great coach. They're just a tough team to play. A team has to have power, speed and skills at every position just to play with them. But yeah, Bynum and Gasol are the difference between this Laker team and the one that kept getting bounced in the first round a few years ago.

We embarrassed ourselves in front of Leo [DiCaprio]. Why, Jazz, why?!

Well you know a team plays defense badly is their fans are saying that the Lakers play good defense....

Anyway, it SHOULD be a sweep....this is an awful lot like last year. The Lakers get a team that's nowhere near as good as their record might show...

Lakers in 4, average margin of victory is 12-13 points...

Utah just isn't willing to work out there. They're horrible defensively, Boozer still isn't healthy, and no one (Williams excluded) else seems to care.

You know, one of the best ways to find out just how good your team is is to listen to rival fans. It's hard to really understand how good you team is, until you read things like this.

I've been saying for a while now that this team is the best the league has to offer, and by reading these comments, I only feel stronger about saying this team is the best.

Still though, I had really high hopes for the Jazz this year. But I think Okur needs to be traded for a center who can play good defense, or for Boozer to be traded for a player who is more around the PF size. I don't know Boozer's actual height, but is LeBron bigger than him? Maybe the Jazz should try to get Bosh, yeah. Trade Boozer and a pick(or another player) for Bosh, that'll make the team just that much better, atleast it should.

Sorry I just had to post these too funny. Here are some comments from Rockets fans

Quote:
I'm going to love seeing the Jazz get beat down by the Lakers in the playoffs.

Quote:
WOW, thanks, LAL.

Lakers got pissed in tonight game and decided to rape Utah's sorry a** for 4 more times.

Let's all joy for the moment, all fans of NBA teams who hate Utah.

Quote:
This thread is for people who are GLAD that the rockets won't be facing the (bleep) in the first round.

If you were one of the people who WANTED to face the (bleep) in the first round and thus are disappointed in the events then this thread is not for you. DO NOT POST IN THIS THREAD!

Quote:
I am going to enjoy the first round between the Lakers vs Utah because i know it's going to be fun. The Jazz is not going to be easy but Lakers of course will prevail. You don't normally see a top seed going against a team that is also pretty tough. And also the reason i want to watch this matchup is because i hate the Jazz and the Lakers being a former Kings' fan.

Quote:
Any Rocket's fan is glad the Jazz lost. Even though I can't stand the Lakers, when they had Magic, they played the game right whereas the Jazz have been low-down dirty SOBs since Rich Kelley played.

Quote:

uh yeah...i fear them.

they beat us like 1980's Tyson opponents.

repeatedly.

i love the rox...i believe in them....for real.

but there is exactly ZERO evidence to support that the ROX can beat these guys.(utah)

crucify me. im a realist.

seeing AB and Williams on the same floor is like watching one of those national Geographic films...starring a beautiful baby gazelle and a lion.

(AB is the gazelle.)

Quote:
Thanks Lakers!

Quote:
I couldn't help but find myself flipping off my TV with both hands and chanting "Burn in hell, Boozer," over and over again. It was like I went into a trance. I don't think it's healthy to hate a stranger that much. It most be so lonely for him not to have a friend in the entire world.

Here are some from the Mavs fans.

Quote:
Quote:
Utah can probably thank Deron for that. He wanted to try to man up on Bynum and jack at Kobe. If LA was "going through the motions" that definitely set them up. Utah had a good thing going having that counter-push run and then they started to fall back again.

Fouls/going to line probably kept Utah in this game a lot longer than they should've been.

Absolutely. Utah unnecessarily awoke the beast. Now they have the privilege of being summarily dismissed by that beast in the postseason.

Quote:

Well...

Bynum threw one down and as he ran back he ran into Williams. He might've been able to move...might not have, either way Williams took offense to that. The next play down or soon there after, Williams made it a point to really put some meat into a pick he threw on Bynum. It wasn't necessary and really wasn't involved in the action of the play and he got called for a foul and lead to a timeout and Williams and Kobe were talking back and forth.

At that point, Utah bent over.

Quote:
I'm crying tears of joy over this game.

Quote:
Thanks LA. You just made my day.

Quote:
Thank you, Los Angeles. I still hate you though.

Quote:
yes this is really a bad day.

Why havn't they mentioned anything about surgury? I mean he had to damage something in his knee that will require surgury. He must have got a MRI? This is killing me not knowing, and the fact that we didn't know till today.

It's a good thing we got a ring last year because it may be the last one for a while.

This guy doesn't know how to spell "surgery" correctly.

More Celtic fans reaction.

Quote:
Not really. The lakers wouldve been better with bynum last season. how can you even deny it? hes exactly what they needed in that series.

I know bynum isnt KG, thats for sure! but an excuse is an excuse, and we pounded on lakers fans all summer and season because of it, but Celtics fans are gonna be awful with the excuses.

This was part of the risk in getting KG. Injuries are part of the game. Absolutely no excuses.

And Ill be cheering for the good team we still do have, but lets hope there not emotinally crushed and just lose in the first round because of this dramatic loss

Quote:
Thank God we have Mikki Moore

The Rebound Tipping Queen Ganja Foul Machine can’t ram it low

but…..Ram it Low with Po and let’s give it a go!

Quote:

As much as this hurts, we are still a good team without him. I still see us getting to the ECF, I can even see us slip by cleveland (probably not but could), however we will have no answers for pau gasol come finals time if we make it.

Quote:
I feel emo.

How could this happen to me?

Quote:
Doc is a disgrace!

Same for Danny and Wyc!

For two months they go out of their way reassuring us that KG will be ready for the playoffs. Last night on TV, Wyc said KG would be playing.

ALL LIES!!!!!

Only two things can save the Celts now : Crippling injuries to Kobe and LeBron within the next 7-10 days.

Quote:
It's OK!

It’s OK, guys! We have Mikki Moore!

Quote:
Can't Root

For either the Lakers or the muscle flexing dancing Cavs.

I think I just threw up in my mouth

.

Quote:

Not to second guess...

… but if the injury was this serious, they should have gotten KG surgery immediately after the injury. It’s been over 8 weeks, and the injury is apparently still not healing as anticipated.

The Celtics medical staff has left a lot to be desired in recent seasons.

Eh...

“We” may not be able to better diagnose the issue, but that doesn’t mean the medical staff got it right. They majorly dropped the ball with Big Al, Wally, and others in the past. Why should anybody suggest they got things right with KG here?

I think it’s perfectly fair to suggest that the medical staff failed to appreciate the significance of the injury, both initially and during his rehab. Again, it wouldn’t be the first time.

Quote:
celtics upper management is a disgrace..

go team though

That one sounds familiar....

Quote:
This sucks

I could say a lot more, but that about sums it all up.

It breaks my little Celtic Green heart to say that but I am a realist. Without KG, we don't have what it takes to get to The Finals.

Horrendous start by the Jazz, and if Miles or Brew had stepped up this game would be down to the wire right now.

Quote:
I'm sorry to say it, but Boozer will most likely have a bad game 2. He hasn't been consistent in two years, and he won't step up. But watch Brewer/AK/Korver have a big game, but we'll still look the same.

It definitely will be, UT OUTLAW. I hope the Jazz respond with a care free, fun loving attitude. Because they will play so much better if they look at it like that and just have fun.

Mark my words: The Jazz will make a Finals appearance again here in the next 2-3 seasons. And I'm not ruling out this year yet. Jazz have the potential to shut the Lakers down. It's a matter of who will show up to the game, Jeckyl or Hyde? Special Olympics Jazz or Kobe Killers? ;p

You know, with all the hype surrounding a kobe/le bron showdown, something is bound to happen. Something like, oh I don't know, Lakers being eliminated in the 1st round. lol ;p

I've accepted the fact that we ended up with the worst match-up for the 1st round. But it'll be exciting to watch. Whether the Jazz exit 1st round or not I'm watching EVERY game east and west. YOU GOTTA LOVE IT, BABY!

Comming on our site and running your mouth constantly. Remember when Detriot beat your mighty lakers? Or last year when Boston handed you your ars? keep chirpen tuna!

If the Jazz can pull together a full 48 minutes, they are a serious contender. They just slack off half the time. That first half today is where we lost. The 2nd half looked pretty good. If they could put two halves/four quarters together, they'd win!

And I think they can do it!!!

Game 1 In-Game/Post-Game Quotes

Quote:
Quote:
Once again, the classy LA fans show themselves. You're up 10 points, in a series the NBA has all but guaranteed you'll win and you still have to chant UTAH SUCKS. Simply amazing.

The NBA hasn't guaranteed it. Utah has by giving up already.

Quote:
Man, Knight sucks. I had such high hopes for him this year.

Quote:
Did Boozer just yell "And 1" when the Laker was going to the hole???

Quote:
Wiliams really don't have a go-to-guy to pass the basketball in this series... our team is so flawed it hurts in the eye...

Quote:
Game's already over.

The more things change the more they stay the same.

Boozer being picked on. Brewer missing outside jumpers. Collins making us play 4 on 5. Horrible defensive decisions. CJ playing like a scared little girl. Jazz's overall intensity lacking. Millsap and Harpring battling inside. Deron leading us.

Keep Millsap, Deron, and Kosta. the rest of this team is expendable.

this only proves my theory right. Anyone notice what was happening when our offense was clicking early on? Only when we decided to miss wide open jumpers and give the ball away did the Lakers really start building a lead.

The issue isn't our horrible defense, but our gross offense. We just don't have the offensive fire power outside to keep the Laker d honest. Nor do we have a big man inside to matchup against Gasol and Bynum.

Quote:
Ha, and some of you were excited for this game.

Quote:
PS Stop bitching about the refs. The jazz are being outplayed. No hustle, no defense, don't blame a 22 point deficit on the refs, blame it on your teams effort.

Quote:
Yes, the refs suck, but blaming the refs is just plain stupid. This team has so many holes that they need to worry about their own sorry as$es.

Quote:
The refs have blown a few calls but seriously the Jazz are losing because the Lakers are better and because our guys can't make shots, defend or make FTs. I don't know what game you are watching but the Lakers are toying with the Jazz. The only guy who played decently was DW and he tailed off after going to the bench. The Jazz make Brown, Walton, Ariza, and company look like All-stars while our former All-stars clank shots, not cover the 3 pt line or lane and miss FTs. The Jazz tried but it is obvious that the Lakers are a lot better than the Jazz. The only chance the Jazz had is to shoot lights out. They got a lot of good looks but couldn't make them and they left 3pt shooters wide open and that's why the Jazz are losing and not the refs.

Quote:
There go your tacos, (bleep)!!!

The Jazz can battle the Lakers. They just need to do it for the full game. I was VERY happy with the second half. A few mental lapses aside in that half (AK's ridiculous dish, a couple missed layups, some poor passes from D-Will) and the score would have been far closer. Overall though I look forward to game 2.

Quote:
Great game from Carlos too, it's about time. If he scores like that, I can live with his defense.

Unbelievable that we only lost by 13 and we shot under 40%!!! I don't want to get too optimistic, because I still think we are gonna have a hard time winning one game, but we could definitely make this series more interesting than I thought. If we could, for once, shoot well, I think we could win, even in LA. Their length gives us such fits though...

If they were bored they aren't a championship team. Championship teams don't let off the gas in the playoffs.

Give the Jazz some credit, they fought in the 2nd half.

Quote:
and what happened to all that Deron talk of taking over the game right from the start? Fish always seems to bother him

exactly. we got 2 fouls on fisher in 2:30 and then once brown came in, williams stopped attacking instead of trying to get a couple quick ones on him as well, or quick ones on their bigs (which came later) or getting a layup, or quick out. i guess he just figured that ak and brewer were out there for any quick outs and they can't shoot. love the glaring flaws on this team.

Quote:
There are definitely positives out of this one. We just need the following things to happen/not happen:

  1. NOBODY aside from Deron is to dribble the ball down the court.

  2. Do NOT take stupid shots over an extended Odom/Bynum/Gasol when the odds are against you.

  3. Do NOT miss layups.

  4. Do NOT get frazzled and make silly turnovers when the crowd is loud.

  5. D-Will needs to play the whole game and needs to continue to drive to the basket and draw fouls.

  6. Boozer stepped it up today and he needs to keep that up.

  7. We need to go to the paint and draw fouls. Brewer and Miles among others are not hitting their shots.

The Lakers are better than we are, but that does not mean we cannot beat them.

Quote:
I'm okay with this game.

Their role players hit a lot of tough shots, ours couldnt hit anything at all from the outside. Deron couldnt hit anything from the outside. We had no Memo. We outplayed them in the 2nd half.

The Jazz played hard, Boozer is starting to look a little better.

It looks like we are atleast willing to fight them. We were a disasterous Brevin Knight stint away from legitimately being in this game.

This game reminded me very much of the first game of the last Jazz-Lakers series which is a good thing because we were actually a good team then.

Quote:
At least we try...

We didn't quit, but still I never have the sensation we could come back....

The best thing is we didn't play our best game.

Quote:
All the things we were certain of earlier in the season has kinda of diminished as the season is coming to the end.

We really arent a deep team.

We really havent made the defensive commitment.

We dont have Derons backup...and he isnt on this roster.

AK is never coming back.

Korver might be on the decline already...I hope thats not true.

Stop being so damn proud. Make changes. Get very creative this summer, get aggressive, get hard working players in here. We dont need to be a 1 and 4 team. We dont need to be a half court team. We need to become the team that is best suited to win a championship. Send everyone in the Jazz FO to San Antonio and have them learn something.

I can live with Sloan being the coach, but he needs to become more open-minded and be ready for change. Otherwise we need to find a new coach.

Yep, nobody, and I mean nobody, will ever accuse the Jizz fans of being classy...actually, the Lakers have not been playing good basketball, but, a crappy game from the Lakers is simply enough to beat the Jizz when they play one of their better games. The abyss of talent is just that wide...

Yeah, that's one thing it I'm a little worried about...

As a three-man unit, Brown, Odom, and Ariza have been shooting over 76% on threes. 13 of 17. That pace won't last, especially not on the road.

I also noticed that Miller was overrating everyone's height.

meaning adding inches to just about everybody on the Lakers. He is not the only commentator that seems to think everybody on the team is at least 7 foot tall. He probably thinks Jordan Farmar is 7' 2"!

Yeah I know, Cougs.

Just wishful thinking. I agree that Sloan is past his prime and has probably become apathetic in his career. He put all of his mojo into Stockton/Malone and was shut down by Jordan and the Bulls. That has to take a lot out of you.

And to be completely honest, we'd have to play the Lakers in the WCF anyways if we didn't have them in the 1st round. So... take that as you will.

I would like the Jazz, and Sloan, to go out and throw caution to the wind and make it interesting. That, imo, is their best chance of getting anywhere. And to have fun doing it.

And, that's the beauty of basketball! Things could swing in the Jazz's favor! Underdog upsets happen bro!

;p With that being said, JAZZ IN 6!!

I hope Sloan doesn't put us in too bad of shape. I mean, I hope he doesn't do things like let Milsap go and let D.Wil get frustrated and wanting to leave Utah. That would seriously suck. Jazz are right on the brink of a championship team!

Zz17 & Cougs, As much as it kills me to say it...I think you may be rite about ol' Jerry. Maybe it is time to move on. He's been @ it longer than anyone $ it's probably taken a toll on him. It has been a great ride, though, & I'll always think of him as The toughest & grittiest coach in the league.

If this is possibly his last go-'round, I'm confident that he'll go out on his shield...Hopefully in a later round. I believe in him & my (our) Jazz.

COME ON JAZZ!! STICK IT TO THESE GUYS TONIGHT!!

I think the jazz are going to have their best game in LA, since Stockton and Malone. They showed in the second half, of that game on Sunday, that they are learning how to play LA in LA. The best thing for the Jazz was to lose that season ender in LA. That gave them one free game to learn LA without having to take a loss. I think if LA was smart they would have pulled the starters, gave their bench some practice, and don't give the Jazz "your team" in front of a microscope. So they can study how you work against them, what your game plan is, and a little more time to learn. So get ready to see the best game the Jazz have TONIGHT.

Good job tonight Jazz. I thought this was a much better game than we've seen in a while. We brought a lot more toughness and stayed with them for a good part of the game. If we would have opened up better we would have had a much better chance. Let's get the next two at home and then steal one in LA.

"As much as I respect Williams, I have no respect for Harpring. That guy is a bull in a china-shop. No skills at all. Any guy who's whole game depends on the Refs letting you get away with stuff has no business playing"

I'm not sure it you've heard of this person or not . . . maybe you have. His name is Shaquille O'neal. If my memory serves me correctly I believed he had played in L.A. for a minute a few years back. Anyway . . . What do you think his game is based on? His entire game consists of knocking people back and back until he's under the basket and can get a layup. Shaq commits an offensive foul every time he has the ball, but the refs let him get away with it. How many of those 3 championships do you think the Lakers would have gotten if Shaq wasn't allowed to get away with everything? If you say anything above 0 you're an idiot.

^I saw a few people saying "enough with the bryant/fish jokes" though. It's just awful that anybody could joke about something that serious. When people's lives are at stake, it's not funny. And the kobe rape jokes are reeeaaallly old after the past 8 hundred years.. Although i won't lie, the "if you rape the Jazz do I get an apology ring too?" sign idea kind of made me laugh because of the play on words.. Still annoying though.

I've been saying for a while now that this team is the best the league has to offer, and by reading these comments, I only feel stronger about saying this team is the best.

I totally agree with you here. It's easy to get carried away and be too hard on our team and not realize how everyone else fears them.

If we have any chance to beat the Lakers in Staples center, it's this game.

Quote:
We have the talent and depth to hang with LA, but like Baller said, it's going to come down to how well we defend Kobe. If Ron and Shane can contain him (I'd love to see Shane make Kobe shoot a FG% similar to when we won our 22nd game in a row), then we have a very real shot at winning the series. We're clearly the underdogs, but I think we're best equipped of the remaining WC teams to take it to LA. I just hope our squad doesn't get complacent with advancing outta the 1st round because they now have their hands full with these Lakers.

Quote:
Realistically, Lakers in 6.

If I could dream though, Rockets in 7

Quote:
i'm just trying to be realistic here

we have the talent to hang with them for the first 3 quarters

the problem been the 4th quarter

both Artest and Brooks needs to bring their A game for us to have a chance

both been real inconsistent

Quote:
I think I'm more concerned with Odom than Kobe(BLASHPHEMY!). I guess we will put Artest on Odom and let Battier defend Kobe? To me that's the big mismatch we have to worry about. We know Kobe is going to destroy us(most likely). How do we deal with Odom!

And I don't worry about them being complacent, most of these guys weren't involved with all of the Rockets' failures besides Yao and Battier(and I am never worried about them showing up ready to play). I'm quite confident they will be ready to go and will play hard.

I think we can at least push them to 6 games, but anything more is probably not very realistic. Then again, that's why you play the games!

ariza > outlaw

fisher/farmar/vujacic > blake/sergio

gasol > pryz

bynum > oden

walton < fernandez

...and the blazers were a decent match for us

...

Prior to this I'd been pretty optimistic about this series, but suddenly i don't feel so good.

Quote:
Only way we win is if Kobe becomes the Kobe of old....hogging the ball and taking all of their shots. It's been proven when kobe hogs the ball, the lakers are an average team.

Quote:

assuming bynum's range doesn't extend out to 15ft, our defense should be decent as long as he's on the floor and yao can cheat off him to help on gasol/kobe like he did in the last series to help on roy/lma.

when they go 'small' with odom at pf and gasol at C like they did increasingly against the jazz, we're gonna have trouble.

one thing is that both brooks and lowry have the speed to beat old man fish clean off the dribble. what they do once they've beaten him is gonna be key for us. if they can draw some fouls on the laker big men the extra pressure could be a significant factor considering our ideal offense works inside out.

lakers sweep: annoyed

lakers in 5: disappointing

lakers in 6: expected

anything better: lots of jumping up and down and yelling at the television

They think they have a right to be all those things. Just because the team had the most wins in the conference and rolled over everyone by at least 11 games. Just because of a history of 14 championships, Jerry West, Magic Johnson, Kareem and Kobe Bryant. Just because of Jack Nicholson and other stars of other industries. Just because they're the only team that doesn't have to wear white at home. Just because they get the highest TV ratings, sell the most jerseys and is the most profitable. Just because it's the last team to go back to back to back. Just because of Phil Jackson and Kobe Bryant.

Just because all that, they think they're all that.

This is ridiculous. Why does everyone talk about how great the Lakers are and how many weapons they have. Let's not forget that the Rockets are great and have many weapons, too. The only difference is that they have Kobe. I think Landry and Scola are on a par with Gasol and Odom. I think that Aaron and Lowry are more talented than Fisher and Farmar. I think that Ariza doesn't have anything on Battier. I think Wafer will crush Vujacic and Barry will outsmart Walton. I think Yao will dominate Bynum. The only question is whether Artest and Battier can neutralize Kobe. Somehow, the Celtics manhandled the Lakers last year, and we should be able to borrow from the Celtics' playbook this year. Rockets in 6.

Interesting stat for the Rocket fans to ponder. NO team in the history of the NBA has won a SERIES from a team they went 0-3 or 0-4 during the regular season. We found a way to beat the Rockets 4 straight times during the regular season. They are dreaming if they think they can beat us 4 out of 7 in the playoffs. The Rockets are a great defensive team but they don't have enough offensive weapons to take a series from us. Houston is not quite the hostile environment that Portland or Utah represents. Yao is big but he is also very slow and gets tired easily. Drew is strong enough to keep Yao uncomfortable out there.

here is why the lakers will win not only this series but the ring this year.

  1. Kobe Bryant

  2. our overall depth is downright scary.

  3. Bynum, when he finally wakes up like he did in January, its gonna be all over

  4. Lamar Odom, out of the remaining opponents i cant think of anyone that matches up with him

    especially when he is hitting a jumper.

  5. hussle plays from Ariza and Brown, every championship club has players like this. and they are usually the difference between a two point win and a two point loss.

  6. no other team has 3 or 4 players you have to double team. Its no secret when Ariza and fisher has been hitting so many open shots.

If there's any moral victory here tonight, it's that despite the dirty play, despite some questionable calls, despite the hot start by the Lakers and Kobe exploding on the offensive end, the Rockets were still in position to win this game...they were extremely resilient.

Turnovers and fast break points killed them though... they got sucked into the Lakers' game a little too often. They calm down and play their game, they can take this series.

But one thing they gotta be careful about...and that's not to self-destruct themselves. This team needs Wafer and Artest, and needs them to play smart basketball.

Worst officiated game in playoff history. I hate the Lakers now more than any other team. Kobe is such a dirty player. No wonder Celtics played the way they did last season. Unfair play. Hope he gets suspended and we win all our games at home.

one thing for sure, Kobe will lose lots of chinese fans after tonight

Quote:
I have never realized how dirty and arrogant this Laker team is. Odom trash talking to Scola, Vujabitch being himself, Fisher's aggression on Scola, Kobe's elbow and dirty talking to Battier... Just pisses me off.

I think today the Chinese fans will definitely change their point of view on Kobe. He is very popular in China but after this game, most Chinese fans will turn their favor to Lebron. Lebron is so much more of a classy and noble person than Kobe. He is the real MVP.

Great sport figures should inspire the youth. I dont think Kobe and the Lakers team are good examples for youth by encouraging dirty and backstabbing behaviour.

Quote:
We saw tonight when Stern and his mafiosi coddle and spoil a rapist like Bryant. The mafia NBA did not do anything to the rapist when he obviously elbowed and kneed Battier in the 1st game. They let that slide and he did it again tonight. But look who got the foul and got tossed out? WTF!!! Their favorite whipping boy Artest!

The Lakers played like thugs tonight but only Scola and Artest stood up to them. The other players did not even come to the defense of their team mates when the Lakers confronted them. What a bunch of p****** these Rockets are. They even meekly allowed the Laker scrubs to do lay up drills without anyone being bashed or sent to the floor. I bet even the management is also made up of pussycats who would not complain to the head of the Stern gang about the referees. For crying out loud Joey Crawford was allowed to referee this game and what did the Rockets management expect? Only JVG had the nerve to stand his ground in this organization but guess where he is now?

Who the hell for you to represent millions of basketball lovers in China?

Times like these justifies why I think society of going down the drain. Children idolize such rats like Kobe Bryant.

Quote:
Look at it this way...we did what the Celtics did last year. We are winning the mental battle with the Lakers.

FACT: They are NOT tough. They are a bunch of glitz and glamor pretty boys who have great skills, but don't have toughness outside of Kobe. They are going out of character to be something they are not. They failed miserably vs. the Celtics when they tried to do that. Gasol was manhandled, Odom disappeared, Fisher was outplayed, and Kobe got frustrated.

Quote:
Agreed, I would take a Kobe KO over the Championship and no I'm not kidding. My hate for Kobe knows no bounds. I want Artest to go Mike Tyson on Kobe and bite his damn ear off.

Damn....

Quote:
I'm just sickened by the awful job the refs did. Horrible calls all around. Not only were there an abundance of mystery calls (like Artest's throat getting in the way of Kobe's elbow), but way too many no-calls. I'm so proud of my Rox for playing with such CLASS. Ron is the freakin MAN! We have some tough a** guys on our team who play the game the right way; it's a shame the same can't be said about the Fakers who are just out there looking to take cheap shot whenever they can. Kobe's elbow on Ron was pretty bad, but I can let that go b/c its the playoffs (I still don't see how that is a foul on Ron?). What I can't handle that sasha douchebag constantly slapping everybody he guards, and I definitely can't handle fish-face essentially throwing a premeditated punch on Scola - although I can't say I'm too surprised considering he spent time in Utah, where dirty play is their M.O.

Lot of good stuff....

I didn't think the officiating was THAT bad, but it was definitely in the Lakers' favor.

There's also a "I hate Kobe Bryant" thread going on...

http://bbs.clutchfans.net/showthread.ph ... amp;page=1

Anyway, I've really grown to like reading other forums - it's nice to see how fans of other teams see the game.

Basically the message that they're conveying is that:

1) Still very confident that they can win the series.

2) Bryant, Fisher, Vujacic, and Odom are dirty and classless.

3) The refs are horrible.

ah i dont care one bit bout what they gotta say...really, after reading their comments. Kobe's made to be hated like that. Yes, Fish did commit a very bad foul that was not likable at all, and that flagrant called on Artest last night was a big mistake by the refs, but this is going too far. However the officiating has been, it hasn't been SIGNIFICANTLY in one teams favor. nothing even close to changing the outcome of a game. And the "Lakers are dirty" excuse is laughable. Thats when you know they're just looking for a reason to hate whoevers beating them. These Lakers? dirty? no way. Anyways, let them love LeBron. They played him very well in the reg season and he didn't respond. Different story with Kobe. Every team we beat the past couple seasons has always brought "bad ref" comments from opposing fans...
