Game 2 2007 Playoffs: Lakers Vs. Suns

Lakers Line-up for tonight is: Farmar, the rookie, getting his second play-off start of his career tonight, after his first Sunday, Bryant, Walton, Brown and Odom. Phil Jackson has 178 career playoff wins, the most in NBA history; lets make it 179 tonight, okay Phil?

Well, what can I say? I don't know what was worse: The Lakers playing or that annoying woman (man?) screaming throughout the whole game Tuesday. That high pitch shrill was unbearable, did anyone else hear that?

Game 1 2007 Playoffs: Lakers Vs. Suns

Hey Lakers, the game is 48 Minutes long, not 36! Remember there is a 4th quarter to this game. Kobe played awesome the first 3 quarters, scoring 28 of his 39 points in the first 24 minutes. Kobe got the team off and running early, popping off jumper after jumper, ending the first half with some long shots from down town to give the Lakers their 9 point lead at half time, but it just wasn't enough to hold on in the fourth and win Sunday night.

So can they do something to exploit the weaknesses of the Suns? How about the baseline at the offensive end, starting with Lamar Odom covering Shawn Marion, we know Lamar can do that very well based on last years series. Lamar had 17 points, 16 rebounds in 40 minutes and only 2 points, 1/4 FGs in the fourth quarter in the 1st game. What about Luke Walton when Barbosa is in the lineup, he can really make him play D. Luke had 10 points, 6 assists, and 6 rebounds in Sunday's game, and the key to success is really pounding hard on the inside when the Suns have their 3 guard line-up with Barbosa matched up against Luke so he can make him pay.

Lakers are fighting for the 7th seat, after a fourth quarter meltdown and missed opportunity to rise in the playoff standings against the Clippers last night. Lakers are a game and a half, in the 7th spot.

Phoenix Suns are a machine, they got the 2 time MVP Nash, The Matrix Marion, Stoudemire, Bell, and are contenders for the how are we going to stop them? They have a full team of superstars, we are going to have to claw our way to a win at the ....US Airways Center (Does this arena name change, like every week?), on Friday the 13th, no less. Kwame Brown on the inactive list tonight, still favoring that sore ankle, with Mihm, of course (remember him?), the third inactive player not playing tonight is Aaron Mckee and snowboarding super star Vlade Radmonivich will suit up tonight after returning with limited minutes last night and playing his first road trip since his snowboarding accident.

Luke dating Britney? Shear Madness...

Don't believe it for 1 minute:
Daily Star:
BRITNEY Spears could soon be getting up to some "lanky panky" with a 6ft 8in basketball player.

The pop princess is set to go out on a date with LA Lakers star Luke Walton. And his pals say they will be perfect partners – because Britney, 25, is fresh out of rehab and Luke, 27, is on the wagon during his team's run-in to the NBA play-offs.

"His people and her people are trying to thrash out a date when they can have a bite to eat and then we'll see what happens."

Lakers Bitch Slap The Queens: 126-103

The Lakers win on this auspicous Sunday, with Jordan Farmar making history by being the only player to play in an NBA & D-League game, Luke Walton awarded player of the game with 18 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist.

Pre-Game Ramble: Lakers vs. The Queens

The Lakers currently lead the season series against the Queens 1-1, after splitting last season 2-2. This will be the 261th meeting between the 2 franchises and the 96th since the Kings moved to Sacramento. In their first meeting this season, (1/4/07) Bryant who is averaging 36.0 points this season aainst Sacramento this season, just missed a triple double with 42 points, 10 rebounds, & 9 assists. in an overtime victory with 102 FT attempts. Also in that game, the Lakers were lashe with 42 personal fouls, making a new LA lakers franchise record.

Farmar Works Double Shift Tonight

Los Angeles Lakers' point guard Jordan Farmar may be written into the record books tonight as the only player to play in 2 different leagues in the same day. Earlier this afternoon, Farmar played in the Lakers' developmental league, the D-Fenders, who played against the Anaheim Arsenalsthis afternoon and scored 18 points and playing 40 minutes. So, could he play again in the game tonight at 6:30 against the Sacramento Kings?

"The thinking behind it is that it would be really great to have Jordan get a game in which he really has sustained minutes to play - get some shots, get back in rhythm again," Lakers Head Coach Phil Jackson said.
No player has ever appeared in both a D-League and an NBA game in the same day.
It remains to be seen if Farmar plays for both the D-Fenders and Lakers in the same day. "He might," Jackson said. "If Mike Bibby gets fouls on our guards, we might need him."

So it remains to be seen if Farmar will play tonight or not, known for for his hard working ethic on the court, we'll just have to see how hard working he is after tonights game against the Kings.
