Mike D'Antoni

-----------------------------------------------------

Mike D'Antoni and the Kobe-less Lakers deserve credit for not quitting at the end of the year and squeeking into the dance as a 7th seed. Ironically, the Spurs are the team Lakers fans wanted. Unfortunately I dont think they can beat San Anton without their star guard. I see Pau Gasol & Dwight Howard leading the Lakers to 2 wins in this series, but they will go down in 6. Tim Duncan continues to defy Father Time, and no one on the Lakers can stay in front of a healthy Tony Parker. It will be a good series, but I still got San Anton in 6 baby!

It's all about momentum. The Lakers definitely have it.

This could prove to be a close contest. Sure they don't have Kobe, but the Spurs have their own injury problems. The Lakers will need Dwight and Pau to continue playing to a high level, and if they do, then they'll have a good chance. Overall, though, I think this will be a 4-3 either way. But I'll back the Lakers to take it.

Ginobli's health (or lack thereof) is key to this series if the Lakers want to have a shot. D'Antoni needs some kind of defensive game plan concocted overnight for a memorable series.

I'll go Spurs in 5.

The key here is for LA to steal one of the 1st two games.

Lakers in 6.

By the way KT, thanks for the excellent NBA Match up threads as usual!

Alright, Ginobli ripped us a new @hole in Game 1. Tip your hat.

The Lakers must steal one of these first two games to have a shot.

They have one more chance to make that happen.

Meeks a game time decision. However, Jordan Hill has been cleared to play.
