Both teams will win a game on the road. Lakers in 7 if it doesn't happen in one of the first two games. Spurs in 6 if it does.

Udoka can guard Odom.

Udoka did guard Odom.



FIXED

"Did" guard Odom well... but that does not mean he will do likewise in this whole upcoming series....

GO LAKERS
I want to see manu keep up with Kobe scoring wise
the biggest problem for Lakers is going to be Tony Parker I dont know how they will keep him out of the paint

Lakers faced some tough guards so these playoffs.

Iverson, Willaims, now Parker.

Gunn be a good game....Lakers should take game one. Good rest and at home.

Udoka can guard Odom.

Udoka is the x-factor in limiting the Lakers x-factor(Odom); he is the closest thing we have to the size/speed combo of Odom (yet still pales in comparison)
Odom scares me but I think Udoka can do it if given the opportunity. Give the man some minutes Pop!

I am not biased toward one team over the other since I don't like one team over the other. I do think that the odds are in Spurs favour, but this will depend on Spurs backcourt. If Ginobili can play like he did vs. the Hornet, then the spurs will probably be fine. I have no concerns for Kobe since everyone knows he is going to be great, but I am worried about the other PG and SG on the Lakers team that would have to chase Parker around and spending all their energies on the defense.

I think Horry could still do a good job on Odom if he put his mind to it. Better than I can see anyone else on SA doing. He has the size/length/speed to stay with Odom, especialy if he plays smart (i.e., let Odom take the jumper when he puts the ball down on the floor; Odom seldom pulls up, when he drives he wants to go al the way).
