Prediction

First time we've faced the new look and newly revamped Lakers. No Bosh again so I expect yet another blowout for the opposition.

Predict and discuss!

No Bosh..this is going to be ugly I'll be watching for positives...like Bargnani playing aggressively and Ford getting more into the flow...Parker scoring 20.. things like that. If we can get some sort of consistancy happening for when Bosh returns we could still make a run at Orlando.

Yup and likely no Bosh for the entire 5 game western road swing.

Game-by-game decision, but they said the other day that he'll travel with the team but there's a good chance he won't be playing.

one of our toughest weeks this season, and we'll be without CB.
that is not good.

the only good that will come out of this is if AP realizes how good he really is and continues his recent tear.
and then when CB comes back, he doesnt stop or let down, he just keeps tearing it up even more.
we need that legit second option, AP can be that guy if he just believes in himself.

You promised that last time but chickened out. Get Aar to take a picture for proof this time around.

I doubt we win, but the LAkers defense has been terrible lately. If they dont play better defense this game is going to end like 140 - 135-

BC's really trying to tank for that 6th spot. I dont blame him either. Once WAS gets back Arenas and Butler in a week or two they should surpass us with Bosh sitting out.

I'm more worried about us getting destroyed in GSW than I am in LA.

Not to be a pessimist, but we are screwed for this game. Unless the above statement holds true.
