Helllo Lakers Fans...the starting line-up was Kwame-less...could be that ankle? The Lakers have lost their last 2 season series with the Lakers, interestingly, the Lakers has never lost a series season to the Grizzlies prior to the 2004-05 season. The last time the Lakers played the Grizzlies, Kobe scored 60 points, which made him only the third player in NBA history to score 50 or more points in 3 consequetive games.

Pre-Game Ramble: Lakers vs. Warriors

Hello Laker Fans, this game should be an exciting one, but not particularly because of the opposing teams prowess. In fact the Lakers lead their season series wth the Warriors 3-0, last year 4-0, & 3-1 the year before. The Lakers have not lost a series season with the Warriors since the 94-95 season. The Lakers are 12-1 overall against the Warriors and have won the last 7 in a row! They are 14-1 overall at Staples and have won the last 7 at home.
So, if its not the incredible match up, then what's generating the magic in the air at Staples?

65-50-60 Back to Back to Back
Kobe had 60 points on 3/22 Against Memphis Kobe had 60 points and became the 4th player in NBA history to score at least 50 points in three consequetive games, Joining Jordan (April '87), Elgin Baylor (Dec. '62)m, and Chamberlain who accomplished the feat 10 times in his career.

Pre-Game Ramble: Lakers vs. T'Wolves

Hello Lakers Fans....sitin' here at Staples after wadding through attendees of the car show at the Convention Center....it looks like nobody got the news that todays game starts at 5pm instead of the 6:30 printed on the tickets. As the Start Spangled Banner is being belted out by a 14 year old Napoleon Dynomite look alike, the Staples Arena looks about half full. The Lakers currently lead their season series with Minnesota 2-1. This will be the 70th meeting between the 2 franchises.
