Default Alley-oop's and Rebounding. This team is getting riduclious!!!!

Wow, the Lakers just undressed us this entire game. Shit, there has been so many open breaks for the Lakers thats its just riduclious. They have made more ally-oops in this game then we have made offensive rebounds. Honestly we looked good for a bit, but they completly undressed our defense. How long is this teater-toter at .500

Please BC PLEASE, make a move. Do something, beucase this team is getting riduclious. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had a lot of things to be happy today. We were one superstar shy from having a chance is this game. I wonder who that was.

No complaints here, I liked the effort. Being within 6 pretty late in the game against this team in their building is pretty dec.

Ukic looked great. Graham had nice aggression again, he missed the finish on a couple players, but still, I really hope we stop playing Moon from now on.

Bargnani can't handle long periods without rest yet, his shots were all short after he'd put up a lot of minutes like the last game. Putting on muscle this summer was a good idea, but it came at the cost of having a tip top conditioned body, I'm sure he'll just get more fit over time though, and once JO comes back we won't need him to play 40+ games anyways. This was the best he's ever rebounded, 11 boards before the 3rd was done, very nice.

Overall the Lakers frontcourt is a bad matchup for us without JO... Bosh is clearly one of the worst big man defenders in the league right now, against teams like Boston or Philly or whatever you can disguise it because he can just guard Perkins or Dalembert, but against teams with two offensive threats he gets seriously exposed. I still think Bargnani should've been guarding Bynum, even if Gasol kills Bosh, at least both of them aren't going off at the same time. I think it's clear though that Bargnani is much better at guarding the post than he is finesse guys with range like Gasol, this game proved that for now at least.

Nothing you can really do about this game, the Lakers are the Lakers. The games I've looking to are Denver, Portland, and Utah if we want to salvage a win over this 5 game stretch.

12pts 6reb 4TO 4-13 FG.... Bosh GOT PWND LOLZ. Calderon stunk despite the 12 assists.

On a positive note Bargnani with a very solid game against a very solid team.

For the record though I don't think Bosh should be *that* killed for this game. The Lakeres are a very smart and unbelievably well coached team, they came in knowing Bosh was the focal point of our offense and that our game, being feed it to him and let him score, was simple and dumb and easy to guard with the right personnel... they put the clamps on him. Considering we don't actually have plays, let alone a wing scorer to open up the floor, it's unsurprising PJ can come up with a scheme to shut him down. As long as Sam is our coach we'll never be able to beat the teams with the really smart coaching, our game is just too rudimentary.

bargnani's conditioning is a lot better this season imo, he was horrible last season. I think the problem tonight is that he was the only one banging downlow on defense, and that takes away your energy very quickly. I really hope the Raptors manage to get Andreea for another summer of scheduled work, as opposed to going to the national team - it could do miracles for him.

So it's Sam's fault Bosh played poorly? Of course!

Congrats to Ukic for hitting his first NBA 3.

If at first you don't succeed...take 8 more.

Bosh is an MVP though... he's not suppose to get shut down by anyone no matter who they are and who is coaching them.

I actually liked what Sam did this game. He used Moon and Graham on Kobe, and took away penetration, which was the main reason we stayed as close as we did. Sure, when you give him space, he will make jumpers at a high rate. But jumpers will not kill you, penetration and wide open 3s will.

ukic is probably the worst shooter in the league right now. However, despite that, he can be a good player because he was other qualities. If he works on his shooting this summer, he will be a very solid backup for us next season.

I don't expect 30, but I do expect those 10 rebounds every game, especially when JO is out.

I'll admit, watching Bosh grab a rebound only to have it ripped out of his hands by Farmar was quite disheartening.
