Scorcho, the Blazers look like a fun team to watch. They seem to pass and rebound well, and take alot of jumpers.

The Blazers:

* Can't run a fast break properly
* Take way too many jumpers
* usually get out-rebounded every game

So far in this game, they've done ok on fast breaks (although they still look lost) and have controlled the boards well. Still, you see big time lapses on the defensive glass allowing for easy offensive points for the other team.

They'll be really good once we solve our point guard woes (we currently have 3 backup point guards running the show) and our rebounding woes. The rebounding thing is easier to fix with Oden coming.

Lakers seem to be relaxing when they take a lead or get the momentum. Can't keep a lead for longer then a couple possesions.

For some reason, this reminds me of the Atlanta game a few weeks back. That's also the last time the Lakers lost I believe. Foul trouble or poor shooting basically.

Nice call on Odom there. 43 seconds in and he gets his 4th foul.

Still think they'll blow it, Scorcho?

The Lakers can't make a shot, and can't get a rebound. Down by 11 again.

Yes you guys will still win this going away. You've played like dog shit and are only down 4. Meanwhile, our guys are hustling their asses off and will be dead tired in the 4th.

Hey, can we give you Jarrett Jack in a trade? How about for a few Staples Center hot dogs? He's so bad that ESPN has changed the game logs from:

" Jarrett Jack turnover"

to:

" Jarrett Jack turnover again"

Gasol has this look on his face like "Aren't we supposed to be up by 20 by now?"

Nice slam by Kobe, then he picks up a T

That is the way this game is going for the Lakers.

Dont know what he was bitching about -- he wasn't even touched. Same with that reverse dunk that was capped too.

He was clearly pushed in the back. Hard to tell how hard, but over here on Fox Sports West they showed it a couple times and it was obvious.

I can't believe they have the lead entering the 4th. To use a phrase I hate and never thought I would use.

Wow. Just. Wow.

Why portland won't win this:

36% shooting
9 assists on 26 FG
13% from 3


The only thing keeping us anywhere near this game is we're shooting 19-19 from the line.

Can only win this if we get hot. I wish we had a PG.
