KCAL 9 in So Cal!
Go Lakers! I am watching the pregame now!
Ok, the Lakers need to work on their FREE throws! Its the first quarter right now!
- I really don't like Brian Cook's game! He does not look any better than last year! (yes, I know its early in the season, but......)
4:40 2 Quarter - Devin Green with Sky Put Back Dunk! Nice!
Pinnock just got major air on a slam dunk! Nice! Farmar is in the game now. Bynum had a good second quarter, as well as Walton.
Farmar - 3 Pointer, lots of energy.
Turiaf good defense and scoring!
Green gets air on a slam dunk put back!
This unit looks very impressive. Very up tempo game.
Farmer just did a great reverse layup and finished a three point play! LA 51 - Sonics 49.
Great behind the pass from Farmar to Turiaf and then to Devin Green for an attempted dunk which resulted in a fowl! 1:15 left in period. Lakers 53-51.
Sasha not playing tonite. Good opportunity to show the other players off.
Halftime score: Sonics 55 - Lakers 53
In the first half, the starting Lakers team looked flat. It was Kwame, Odom, Evans, Smush and V-Rad. It seemed that they were the least comfortable with each other. When the second and third team players came in, they played a more up tempo game and seemed to be more comfortable with that. At one point, the Lakers were down by 10 points (or was it 12?), and the Lakers up tempo pace got them back into the game.
Farmar had 7 points in 6 minutes in the first half.
Start of 3rd Quarter:
Aron Mckee playing... drove to the basket, and fouled...
Ray Allen looks good.. he's shredding the Laker defense.
Vlad-Rad looks way off tonite... just clanked one off the back board and in another play, missed a simple layup!

5:45 - Lamar Odom layup in traffic..coast to coast! sweet! 65-62 Lakers.
Timeout - mini Kobe Interview on TV... the knee is doing better every day... Kobe is pleased with their effort. Kobe mentions www.kb24.com
. Kobe wants to play badly!
67-65 Sonics.. bad play by Lakers... Laker timeout. It seems to me that the core Laker shift is struggling. Turiaf in the game now.
