True, bad call. But they missed a couple calls on Nash as well.

They do? Yes, they have the tie-breaker against the Suns, but they have the same record as the Suns do.

Technically, they're tied for 1st place. But since they did win the season series....

I love how the discussion spills across two threads

I'm surprised Shaq played as much as he did tonight.

nickdawgy....good to see you.

Shaq looked better than expected. Don't know if he can keep it up, but he is a determined and proud guy, so maybe.

Hey Dave, how have you been? I haven't had the chance to post too much lately, just try and drop in on Lakers threads or other sports when I can.

Maybe Shaq was pumped up, or maybe he's back to his old self. I think he'll help the Suns more then hurt them.

Life is decent. I rarely post in Sports, but this game brought me out.

Remember, it doesn't matter if the Lakers won or not, they will lose in the playoffs since the Suns won't have any trouble moving past them.

That's good to hear. Stop by more often, we'll turn you into a Kobe fan.

If Bynum can come back healthy and play the way he did before he went down, then the Lakers will have no problem getting past the Suns.

I posted this in the other thread, but amazing how the negative talk about Gasol has stopped. As much as everyone thinks we over-hyped him, he is playing great basketball and really has fit in flawlessly to the triangle over the last two weeks.

Scary when Bynum returns. Real scary

Great win last night.....the anticipation of getting Bynum back has me all giddy - and is probably giving the rest of the West an ulcer just thinking about it. I just he's able to return to form by playoff time.

The next 5 are relatively easy, although the @Portland game has me worried a bit - they just don't seem to play well there. I'm anxious for the Mavs game coming up - a chance to lay the smackdown on another contender's home court.

Fine.

Adding Shaq showed it hasn't slowed the team down. The one thing that didn't happen last night is frequent offensive rebounds by the Lakers with second and third chance opportunities. That's always what I had a problem with.

It's a regular season game, it means shit. Would love to see a Lakers vs. Suns WCF!

True but it was obvious to me they are gonna miss Shawn Marion. Huge loss in my opinion.

Yeah totally bullshit game. Nothing to do with playoff seeding, tie-breakers or divisional standings.

You don't have to worry about us here in Portland. You guys are playing as well as anyone in the league and we've regressed a ton once teams started making adjustments to us defensively. Plus, our young guys are hitting a serious wall. Most have never played this many minutes in a season and there's still 31 games to go.

Yup, total waste of time. Why even play regular season games?

I love how the bulk of Laker fans have the inability to read.
