    I see the lakers are 6 pt favorites tonight....but

    1.No nash or Blake, not that they would have done much but you now have Darius Morris on Deron Williams a top 3 pg

    2.An angry Brook Lopez who was thrown at orlando for dwight constantly and unwanted, he's out to prove he can play vs dwight

    3.Gerald Wallace, the so called kobe stopper on the wing

    4.Cj Watson,Marshon Brooks, and surprisingly Blatche have all been ballin off the bench compared to antawn jamison,jodie meeks and the awful lakers bench

    Does anyone else think nets may even win this game?

    Those factors will make the game more interesting than it should be, but this is D'Antoni's first official debut on the sidelines, as opposed to the debut of his offense when the Lakers torched Houston the other night.

    That factor alone may weigh more heavily than our perceptions that some Nets players may have chips on their shoulders, or else can stop a shooting guard few have ever stopped before.

    Both have looked unconvincing at times and have mostly played bottom feeders so far.

    The Lakers are 13th out of 30 in Drtg and Brooklyn is 17th, so not really? Pretty average. In fact, being 2 spots above and 2 spots below 15th in the league in defense is pretty much the very definition of average.

    The Lakers are 13-31 from the line, yet up by a point with 2 minutes left in the game.

    If the Lakers made their free throws, it wouldn't be this close.

    Total bail out call by the refs!

    So was the Bynum - Gerald Wallace incident where Mr. Glass collapsed one of Crash's lungs payback for some Kobe / Wallace smack talk?

    What was the story there? I just remember seeing it on ESPN but never learned the context.

    Lakers went on a 11-2 run after the genius coach Avery Johnson decided to play hack a Dwight and stopped any momentum that his team had.

    Yea next time actually watch the game and see that the Nets were using the hack a Dwight strategy before you post nonsense.
