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.

    • I also want to take this space of internet to announce that I'm still so fuging happy we got Monk. 
    • Not really a fan of MCW. Not even sure if he is better than Sessions tbh. I don't think Teague will want to be a backup much less take the MLE, but who knows- might not be a market for him. Livingston would be incredible but don't think we have the money and why would he leave Golden State unless they don't offer him anything.  Here's someone that's not a free agent, but I would not mind us taking a shot on: Dante Exum. With the Jazz trading up to get Donovan Mitchell Exum looks to be ousted as the PG of the future there. He's had his struggles but he's extremely talented and has never really had a great mentor like Kemba would be.  I'd give them Sessions (lol), Jeremy Lamb plus a couple second rounders. Would not give up any of our core: Batum, MKG, Cody, Kemba, Dwight, etc. Wonder if they would bite on that? It's crazy that second rounders really do become valuable. If we had an extra second we could have had Mason + Bacon likely.  Part of me wonders whether or not we will try to have Monk run some backup PG. That would be a mistake IMO. He needs to be running off screens all day.
    • I wrote to both Tillis and Burr - the thing that pisses me off the most about this is that the savings that this bill creates in the budget are not used for deficit reduction - they are nothing but a hand out to the wealthiest among us and corporations in the guise of creating a more robust economy.  These heartless lying  bastards make me sick.
