Again not worried about AD ... I’m worried about Lebron as he’s been a shell of himself lately. If he continues to play very guarded with no lift or explosion then this playoff run will be short.

Looks like the Suns are opposite mindset than that of the Lakers sharing injury reports...don’t want to show any signs of CP3 being banged up. If they get down 3-2 or lose the series, I’m sure they will say he was banged up.

I think we're going to win this game. All the pressure is on Phx to protect their homecourt.

Not gonna lie. Already anxious about this one. GS game I wasnt anxious until about 2 hours before tipoff...but this one? Yea.

I think its as simple as AD / LBJ playing solid, and the role guys chipping in decently. If that happens, they win.

If we get a Sunday repeat performance? Yea...will not be good.

I am somewhat dubious about the refs - last game they gave the Lakers alot of FT trips. Sometimes that causes the next crew to flip the other way.

Also, keep an eye on the rebounds. Lakers were brutalized by having a great defensive stop, only to have it erased by a second chance, or even third chance, shot that led to points. Those are such morale killers for defense. Keep Suns to one and done, limit their offensive boards.

I disagree and believe we will will. But I'm replying to highlight the humor (nice way to put it) in your post.

We last by 9. You say the game will be closer (meaning less than 9 points) but we will still get waxed? I question your definition of "waxed". lol

Lakers not only need to win but also play well offensively. Even if it's a close win we need to score at least 110, and ideally at least 115.

We also need to up-tempo the game and play our pace.

If we win Game 2, we're in good shape, as we'll steal HCA and have the momentum coming back home.

AD should have a bounce back game,
Should be better from the free throw line
Lakers will shoot much better from 3, didn’t we go 2-13? That won’t happen again
Interested to see how Lebron plays, like others have said, doesn’t have the same lift, but if the above things happen we should still be ok for this game.

Wow. I have realized how much I absolutely cannot stand Lebron. You know it is bad when I actually root against the Lakers. I would have never thought that possible. That is what Lebron has done. I can't stand that POS. Makes me sick to think he is wearing the same colors Kobe wore. That idiot should never ever be in any conversation with Kobe. Kobe was all class. That is just another reason he was so legendary. Lebron wouldn't know class if it beat him upside his receding hairline.

Even if we drop this one I think we are still OK.

But need to start seeing an effective approach at containing Booker. He can't be dropping 30 AND still picking us apart with passes off that curl play over and over again.

He is different in that he is a pretty good passer so trapping him isn't as effective, we need our guards to nut up and get up in his grill. Put Matthews out there more if need be.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a starting lineup change, or at least some alterations to the rotation.

The heat is on. I'm usually not a must win fan but I'm jumping ship and calling this a must win game. If we go down 2 0 we will have Mount Everest to climb.

I hope LBJ's performance in game wasn't because he's injured. I expect him and AD to start fast. Slow starts mean too much energy has to be used to catch up.

Vogel has to make adjustments. If he uses the same starting lineup I think he has to make rotation changes, give THT, Gasol, Morris some burn.

I'd like to see the Lakers use their size. I think AD should go low, stop shooting so many 3s. He has a monster midrange game. I hope he uses it. That's where Vogel comes in, make a game plan to utilize AD's midrange game.

If Pheonix is giving us this much trouble how will we fare against Cleveland, Brooklyn, and even Boston and like?

LETS GO LAKERS!!!
