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.

[size=5]By the way KT, thanks for the excellent NBA Match up threads as usual![/size]

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.
