    It comes down to how hard will Manu make Kobe work on defense. Manu has to be the most aggressive player on offense in order for the Spurs to have a chance.

    Artest will take care of him. Artest cannot guard speedy guard, but Manu is not.

    It took me a while to figure out who to hate in this series then I realized if the lakers win, they probably go to the championship game, I'd rather have the jazz win, so that they not only stop the lakers, but get sooooooooooo very close to a championship and then feel the cold sting of defeat muhahaha.

    I'd rather Jazz lose the series than the Lakers got beat up by the Jazzholes.

    Well, right after the G1 last night, I reckon that it's gon be a long series than expected because I expect an offensive outburst from the j*zz in G2.

    Kobe finally gets a T. Maybe now, he'll stop complaining to the ref.

    I don't have a very good feeling about this game, for the Jazz.

    Fesenko is such a scrub.

    Missed way too many easy shots.

    I like how TNT just replayed Jack Nicholson Cursing at the refs lol...

    I'm not a professional lip reader or anything, but it looked like he was saying "What the f*** are you looking at? Ref the f***ing game!"

    :grin:

    Wow, like no one on CF watches this series, apparently.

    Hope the Jazz win. At least makes this series more interesting.

    Who is worse defensively: Boozer or Stoudamire?

    Both guys absolutely blow.

    I hate the Lakers very much and wish to see them lose. But I hate the Jazz also so I am not sure I want to see them win. Hence the lack of interest on my part...

    Wow, you know it's sad when Gasol has the nuts to try to walk up and body someone...basically punk them. He just did this with Boozer.

    Maybe I should have wished for the Nuggets to come back. At least they can rebound.

    The Jazz is making Gasol and Bynum
    look like fricking David Robinson and Tim Duncan!

    Milsap should have been shooting free throws. Gasol fouled him on the arm.

    Deron Williams certainly did not show up to play in the fourth quarter today. Kept trying to force it inside when nothing was there.

    Well that's 2 series that are over.

    Despite Phx being up 1-0, I feel that SA will win that one.

    The Cavs-Celts is the only series that could get pretty interesting.

    So, out of 4 series, there are 1.5 left that are still close.

    Millsap and Boozer play scared against Gasol and Bynum.

    Yeah, there is some size difference but its not that bad. And it's not like Gasol and Bynum are tough either. Gasol can be pushed and punked around.

    Looks like it's mostly mental. They have let the Lakers frontcourt get into their heads.
