Good Ol’ Fashion Shootout at Staples
We knew that the Phoenix Suns don’t play defense. We also know that the Lakers have “momentary” lapses on D but a triple overtime game and a final score of 139-137 is ridiculous. Nice to see Lamar Odom step up and have a monster double double. We all know that Kobe can drop 40 in a game, let alone triple overtime. Big game for Ron Artest coming through in the clutch. Pnonix on the other hand, this teamhas gone from sheik to geek overnight. Remember when they had the starting lineup of Amare, Shawn Marion, Steve Nash? Well, they pretty much gave away these guys. Now they have a trio of Nash, Grant Hill, and Vince Carter. Great team if this was 10 years ago. All these guys, including Nash are over the hill. I know, it suck to say it but that’s the truth. As for the Lakers, we all know they’ve been rolling since the All-Star break. They’ve won 13 of their last 14 games and have 11 games remaining on their schedule. I don’t think they’re gonna catch the Spurs, who are 6 1/2 games ahead of the Lakers but who cares? The biggest challenge for the Lakers are the Thunder and the way things are going right now, it looks like the Thunder are going to have to go through San Antonio before they face the Lakers. Next victim for the Lakers, Clippers at home.
