To be fair, the front line never had Dwight Howard.

Gasol and Howard is going to make the Heat's small lineup pay.
Idk. Lakers offense is still pick and roll. Plus they can sag in because the team lacks consistent shooters.

But it had the 2nd best center in Bynum which still kills whatever Miami have on their front court except for Bosh

Howard is waaaaaaaaaaay better than Bynum. Don't listen to the snake oil salesman-Laker fans that tried to tell us otherwise for all those years.

Not gonna lie, I was one of those snake salesmen. Although I never said Bynum was better than Howard. But Howard is a LOT better than Bynum.

Straight up, book mark this page. Since July I've said the Lakers at their best are BY FAR the best and most complete team in this league. If they are healthy come June, I believe they will annihilate everyone Miami included.

Cocky much?
Watch and see boys.

$5000 seems like a lost cause at this point.

Lakers biggest threat to make it to the Finals are OKC, Spurs, Memphis, Clippers.
Except Bynum > Howard

Do you think the Lakers are at their best? Starting Jamison, Duhon over Gasol and Nash is their best?

I didn't feel like we lost to the champions tonight. They hit some big shots late in the game, yes, but their half-court offense is so ineffective.

Blah, hopefully we play better next time we meet.

Besides Wade and LeBron, Miami shot 12/38. Those "champions" you're talking about had their bench scoring mad amount of points, and shooting lights out. They're not there right now.

Do you know why that is? It was because of the Heat's defense. Wade, Allen, and LeBron played great defense on Kobe. The Heat played the picks to perfection, and played great deny defense against Howard and Gasol. When they did get it, they either strip them or played very physical.

But both teams screwed up. The Heat couldn't score in the half court set early, and couldn't shoot the 3 ball even though they are one of the best. They only shot 15%. Bosh is having a bad stretch too. Wade and LeBron are the ones that killed the Lakers both defensively and offensively.

The Lakers screwed up with their turnovers and had trouble with the Heat's defense. If they kept their turnovers in check, they might've won. But half of the turnovers were due to the Heat's D and the other half was sloopy passes. Lakers played some decent D and Howard really bothered some shots.

If the Lakers find someway to give their big men the ball, then they would win. It's easier said than done with the Heat's defense.
