Babalu
04-30-2010, 09:44 PM
lets see what kind of adjustments westbrook will make knowing that kobe will let him shoot.

That will be the key matchup since artest has kept durant in check all series.

Kobe will definitly make his mark bigger this game then the last. I know he cant resist getting his in a closeout game.

should be a great game.


Whats going to decide this game is going to be the refs. If they let everyone bang again like the last game lakers win. If they start calling little touch fouls as the thunder burst into the paint aiming to touch any lakers jersey standing around and they get those calls again were gonna go to a game 7.

let em bang refs! its the playoffs!

The ONLY color that should be acceptable when it comes to "(insert color)-outs" should be white. White outs are the only "cool" form of it.

This blue is just painful to watch, and we have to put up with it all night.

Too much attention on westbrook... Kristic is getting easy opps because of it... Ha ha I said that was happening... Too bad Durant is still getting shut down by Artest... Artest is putting on one of the best defensive jobs ever by a perimeter player in the playoffs

OldSchoolBBall

The Lakers have the best spacing of any team in the league even without great 3-point shooters. It never seems like the defense is collapsed or packs the paint or swarms the way LA does on defense to other teams, largely because these other teams lack the spacing to make them pay for it. That boils down to execution. It also helps to have so many offensive threats on the floor at once.

Uhh, that was clearly a foul on Fisher. You cant chest up and impede a player's forward momentum like that. Durant had his head and shoulders past Fish. I guess Laker fans are spoiled because ARtest has been getting away with similar murder on Durant all series with no calls.

Juges8932
04-30-2010, 10:48 PM
Durant doesn't even drive and he gets to the line even when he's not the one being "fouled." I use the term foul loosely, very loosely. And people want to cry about Wade in '06 finals. SMH.

I don't. Kobe probably wouldn't pass him the ball the rest of the game. :roll:

Maybe this is the reason why the Thunder is trailing?

I don't think it'd change much. I just remember him playing well at home. I was just wondering because I seen him walking o the locker room but didn't remember him being on the court.

I don't think there is much doubt of making the finals. But winning the finals? Don't hold your breath.

LA's just too dominant defensively. I was going to come down harshly on OKC's offensive incompetence(and they're certainly very limited), but LA's opponent could do sh!t offensively the last time we saw them in a playoff series too. Orlando shot below 40% in the Finals outside of Game 3. Think about that for a second. They were coming off a series where they did whatever they wanted against a good Cavs defense, but couldn't do sh!t the very next series.

You just can't do much once LA decides to D up. They remind me of the 07-08 Celtics. Very inconsistent offensively despite being VERY talented, but they can always win games on the other end of the court. That's why you still have to consider them favorites for the title.

But someone should call Kobe out on his mistakes (and not through some lame reporter) so he doesn't make them again.

durant cant do shit unless the refs give it to him. overated in this series.

1 FG
14 points

The benefit of the doubt that Durant gets is ridiculous. It's one of the few things that keeps me from fully rooting for the guy (the other things being that I'm pissed about the Seattle thing, and the more success Durant has the harder it is to accept Oden's career thus far). That said, I'm fine with one series of favoritism if it means knocking out the Lakers :D

They have ridiculous size/length at every position, and the Twin Towers + Odom take up a lot of space. Then add Artest and Kobe and it's a wrecking crew defensively. Get rid of their size and they wouldn't be great defensively, however.
