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.

Not a hater but I can see what the Lakers are... They struggled all season, it took them till the last game of the season to clinch a playoff spot and now people think they are gonna just turn it around and beat a very good Spurs team. people act like the Lakers players are all in their prime, maybe Dwight but the rest are all past their glory days (except maybe Kobe) he doesnt seem to worry about age lol

Being realistic I don't think that the Lakers will beat the Spurs without Kobe. With Kobe? I think that we actually had a good shot at it as we had been playing .700 ball for awhile.

I still hold out hope and expect to win every game, however lol.
