Default Daman Cast: Lakers @ Supersonics 2/24

Time: 6:00 PM
Channel: KCAL


Lakers.com official preview:

Quote:
The way they're playing, the Los Angeles Lakers might be sad to see this road-heavy stretch of their schedule end.

The Lakers visit the Seattle SuperSonics on Sunday, trying to win seven consecutive road games for the first time in almost eight years.

Los Angeles (38-17) has played 11 of its last 12 on the road, going 10-2 in that span to move into a tie with Phoenix for the Western Conference lead. The Lakers won their seventh straight overall Saturday, 113-95 over the Los Angeles Clippers.

"Obviously, we're in a great situation - we're playing well, we've got confidence, we've got the weapons," Pau Gasol said.

Gasol scored 23 points and Lamar Odom added 20 points and 10 rebounds. Kobe Bryant, who had 41 points in a win over Phoenix on Wednesday, contributed 17 points on 5-of-11 shooting to go with seven assists. Bryant came into the game averaging 32.2 points in the previous six games.

Saturday was another easy victory for Los Angeles, which has averaged 115.6 points the last seven games while winning by an average of 14.4 points. They are shooting 50.3 percent from the field, including 35.9 percent (52-of-145) from 3-point range, in that stretch.

"We've got 10, 11, 12 guys who can all make shots - some from distance," Odom said. "We're playing pretty good basketball. We expect to win."

The Lakers, who also won seven in a row in January, have not won eight straight since an 11-game run from March 13-April 2, 2004. The six-game road winning streak is their longest in five years.

The last time the Lakers won seven in a row on the road was from March 17-April 5, 2000.

Los Angeles looks to close out this stretch strong as it tries for its fifth straight win over Seattle (15-39). The Lakers have won both meetings this season and four of their last five visits to KeyArena.

Bryant scored 48 points in the Lakers' 123-121 overtime road win at Seattle on Jan. 14. He's averaging 24.7 points in 41 career games against the Sonics, reaching the 40-point mark seven times.

Seattle, which has the third-worst record in the Western Conference, has won two of its last three, including a 99-87 victory over Portland on Friday.

The Sonics jumped out to a 10-point lead at the end of the first quarter and led by 14 at the break. Six players scored in double figures, led by rookie Kevin Durant, who had 17 points in 28 minutes.

Seattle coach P.J. Carlesimo kept his star forward on the bench most of the fourth quarter while his reserves took over. Damien Wilkins scored 13 points and added eight rebounds to lead the bench players.

"Our bench really gave us a big lift," Carlesimo said. "I think we were able to stay a little fresher because the guys off the bench gave us such good production."

Seattle has won back-to-back games just four times this season, including a season-high three-game win streak from Jan. 29-Feb. 2.

The Sonics are 10-18 at home, winning five of their last seven in Seattle.

This would be a great early birthday present for me! An 8 game winning streak..

Default Re: Daman Cast: Lakers @ Supersonics 2/24

My main concern is that we're probably going to have to start an injured Luke at the SF spot since Vlad probably won't play which makes us lose a lot of length we needed on Durant. Plus, Kobe's got the pulled ribs so he probably won't be doing much on the defensive end either, it could be a rough game if our offensive stalls for any reason.

I expect to see lots of Kobe at the 3 with Sasha and Fish or Sasha and Farmar tonight. Kobe might not have a great game with all the injuries though, but luckily the Sonics don't have anyone that really gives him trouble so hopefully he can take it easy like last night and lead his teammates into snagging the win for us.

They need to come out with aggression from the get-go! They played way to sluggish against the Clippers.

Thanks for making the "DA MAN" Cast... I like it. Everyone should do at least one game cast, just for fun.

I agree and hope that the Lakers come out with some energy to begin the game, unlike how they came out against the Clipps.

The Sonics can be a scrappy team, and we need to win against these sub-.500 teams.

Go Lakers!

Nice first half... good defense with the potential to play a very sloppy game. Pjax is staying on them so hopefully they will not play poorly in the second half. I'd like to see the Lakers hold the Sonics to under 90 points.

Did I just see Kobe get ejected?

He was asking for it though.... would have loved to see Phil get in the officials face instead of Kobe on that one.
