The Lakers had less fouls called on them, and shot nearly twice as many free throws, and you guys are blaming the refs.

The Lakers shot 40 free throws for crying out loud.

What part of the Lakers were done in thanks to their turnovers didn't make sense for you? Also, the Thunder shoot a ton of jumpshots so they should have less free throws, that's just logic...

Yeah I never said that the Lakers lost because of the refs. Lakers lost because they were outplayed. They did shoot 40 FT's, but the Thunder were fouling a ton. None of that changes the fact that Kobe would get fouled hard and the refs would swallow their whistle, meanwhile on the other side of the court Westbrick gets touched breathed on 2 seconds before going up for the shot and gets the and one. It just seems like Kobe gets less superstar treatment than any other superstar in the game. I'm fine with the refs not bailing him out ever or every 50/50 call not going his way. What I'm not fine with is the EXTREMELY inconsistent job the refs do. I don't agree with much of what you say, T, but I think we can both agree that NBA officiating is the worst officiating in a professional sport (I would even go as far to say that D1 refs in college do a much better job).

HAHA it was bad, I'm so fuging sick of MDA and his refusal to demand defense out of his team. The guy is an absolute fuging joke. Not only does he not believe in playing on both ends of the floor, but he's too fuging stubborn to actually make adjustments to play to the teams strengths. As long as MDA is around the Lakers will not be contending, his ass should be gone the moment their officially eliminated from the playoffs. The sad truth is it probably won't happen though, because he's a Jimmy Buss guy....

Wow, I know it's the Hornets, but this has been a furious comeback (and also a colossal choke). Now can they just play 24 seconds of defense.....

Dwight makes maybe the play of the game! Completely DENIED Lopez....

Gotta give some props to Dwight tonight. He had a monster performance playing with five fouls for a large portion of the second half. Have to respect that, and hope it's going to continue. This comeback is even sweeter being that the Jazz lost, and Houston is trailing entering the fourth....

Well, looks like the Lakers literally just saved their season.

Outscoring the Pelicans in the 4th 33-9.

The Black Mamba going 14 for 21 for 42 points, with 7 boards and 12 assists on the 2nd night of a back to back with a bum elbow.

Incredible win.
