This is a better match up for the Lakers than Portland would have been. Bynum will be more comfortable against Yao. I agree with KT, Lakers in 5.
But, the competition gets tougher from here on out and the Lakers must resist the temptation to grab a big lead, then relax or it will bite them in the arse.

Rockets take home court. Lakers best wake up or Houston will end their playoff asparations early.
Kudos to Yao for getting up off the floor and kicking ass.

Even if LA wins this, Houston may wear them down enough for Denver to finish them off.

I'm sure Stern is having nightmares of an Orlando/Denver finals. Ratings would be destroyed.

Artest's haircut

Who does he think he is? Mase? Don't really like this guy all that much, but there was a funny interview with him after he went into the stands in the last series. He was joking about the Detroit fiasco.
