Default Official PimpCast: Lakers vs. Suns, 2/20/08, 6:00PM PST, US Airways Center

Hi Everyone,


VS.

6:00PM PST // 9:00PM EST Game Time

Television: ESPN TV Nationally, K-CAL TV 9 Los Angeles
KLAC 570AM LA Laker Radio Station

Season Record vs. Suns: 2 - 1

This is the official gamecast for the Lakers vs. the Suns.

The battle for first place in the Pacific Division and the second spot in the Western Conference will take place tonight. The Lakers played a great game last night against the Hawks and turned them into chickens.

For the game tonight, the Suns will be going through a greater adjustment with Shaq in the lineup. I would be surprised if he played 30-35 minutes tonight and I doubt he will have a measureable impact on the game. Unfortunately, at this stage of his career, only his mouth is in championship form.

This is a game the Lakers should win, even without Bynum and Ariza. I would expect the Lakers to own the front court and be able to match anything that the Suns can throw at them and I expect the Suns to be a bit out of synch.

Now, if the Lakers come out with a lack of intensity, then they risk losing the game. I hope they find a way to get motivated to ruin Shaq's debut for the Suns!

Game Preview: ESPN Game Preview

There will likely be a thread in the main forum, so please participate there as well.



Go Lakers!

no way shaq will play 30+, more like 18-25 mins MAX! he will have an impact, def see him getting 10-5 or something like that. who is guarding him ?
with bynum this is def. a win, but i still will put my money on the lakers tonight.
will be a hard game, it starts at 3a.m for me!

Well said SoCalMike

Shaq mouth is the only thing in championship form. Shaq knows his body is telling him its over.

However look for shaq to be strong the first five minutes of the game and then he will slow down.

That is awesome!

Man everyone is jazzed for the game, this might be the earliest pimpcast ever and we aren't even in the postseason, good stuff.

If Pau can stay out of foul trouble and deal with Shaq 1 on 1 PHX will be in big trouble. Then we just need to hope PHX doesn't get hot from the land of 3. They are a pain in the ass to beat when they start draining 3's.

It's a huge game, I believe if we win, we win the season series and will get the tie breaker. Oh and be tied for 1st in the Pacific.

This is game 3 for a tough 12 game stretch for PHX were they are 1-1 so far. It would be great to beat them tonight and send them along at 1-2 on that trip. That would put all kinds of pressure on them!

GO LAKERS!

I'm not worried about Shaq I'm worried about Amare.....

Maybe we can put DJ up against Shaq to save Pau from getting fouls???

If we play our game tonight...spread the floor...hit open J's....and most of all TEAM DEFENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Create turnovers etc. we will win!!!!!!!!!

Another thing that bothers me about this game...
Odom will not be able to rebound as well with Shaq and Amare in there. We've come to rely on his outstanding rebounding.

If we win this game, I think it’ll be safe to say that we’re the official “debut killers” of this league. So far we’ve soiled Marion and Bibby’s big nights. Get a W tonight and Jason Kidd will be next. :)
