Lakers Now

Round-the-Clock Purple and Gold

Live from Staples- Lakers vs. Jazz

Paul Simon in the house!  He's quite wee. 

BK will have the first. 

FIRST QUARTER:

Starting lineup: Odom, Ariza, Bynum, Kobe, Fish.  Marielle Stoermer and Mel Trudell delivering tonight's game ball.  Solid work by both.  Smattering of boos for Steve Javie, upon his introduction.

First team to score wins!

11:15- Well, hopefully not, as Kirilenko hits a three in front of Ariza.  The Lakers go down 5-0 when nobody boxes out Brewer, and he dunks an Okur miss. 

8:33- While it's always fun to be at the game, I always enjoy watching the Jazz on TV, because what they're doing offensively is easier to see.  The endless back screens and picks away from the ball to free people.  Lord knows it gave the Lakers trouble in November.  It'll be interesting to see how they do with it tonight.  Thus far, not great, as the Jazz have been able to generate some pretty clean looks.

6:59- Drew already has six points and four boards, three on the offensive side.  It's good to see him so active this early, given the craptastic game he had back in Utah.  13-12 Jazz.

6:41- Ariza makes a nice cut to the hoop, and Fish hits him with the pass for an easy lay in.  Right now, the Lakers are doing a very good job attacking the rim, and bringing the offense to the basket.  I don't think they've taken more than a handful of jumpers, which explains the solid percentage early. 

5:28- Timeout on the floor.  Thus far, L.A. is taking advantage of Bynum's length and mobility around the basket.  He's able to find space, and they're just lofting the ball up there for him to catch adn put home.  The kid is so good at going up, getting the ball at the highest point, whether it's on offense or defense on the glass.  And they're getting really good at recognizing it, too. 

5:01- Kobe comes out of the TO with a three.  Kwame into the game.  21-13 LAL.

2:42- 30-17, good guys.  To say they're operating well offensively would be an understatement.  Great spacing, great aggressiveness.  Everything is being funneled toward the basket, and now they're finding space all over the court.  Defensively, it's hard to complain, either.  Utah is shooting 35%, and finding it tough to get to the hoop.  After that early burst (I mean very early- like the first three or four trips) Utah hasn't been able to make much hay. 

Tough call on Kwame, there.  Looked like it might have been a makeup call for what could have been a charge on Odom on the previous possession.  Good for Kwame, he looks pretty mobile tonight.

END OF THE FIRST- Lakers 38, Jazz 23.  Very, very, very little to complain about in that quarter.  Lakers shoot 62.5% from the floor, Utah shoots 33%.  Lakers outrebounding Utah 16-10, have racked up an incredible 13 dimes on 15 buckets- holy ball movement, Batman!- and have seen contributions from everyone.  6/4/4 from Odom, 8/4 from Bynum, big plays from Ariza, nice minutes from Kwame.  Plus 13/2/6 for Kobe. 

AK will have Q2.

SECOND QUARTER

11:10 - I'm not sure I've ever seen anybody ever set the tone for an impending foul, but after Ronny Turiaf gives a ferocious swat to a Mehmet Okur attempt under the basket, he's floored by- of all people- point guard Jason Hart while trying to corral the loose ball.  Ronny seemed stoked by the sequence.  Either that or he just felt like dancing about for the fun of it.

9:39 - Ronny pops the baby jumper for two, then sets up Jordan Farmar on a touch pass give and go for the bucket.  Before I can even finish describing what just happened for you good people, Farmar snags an errant pass from Hart, then feeds the rock to a streaking Turiaf.  He gets fouled under the basket and the ball fails to go down, but he'll get two for his troubles.  A very energetic start for Ronny (shocking, I know).

Ronny's first freebie is good, but the next flies into Okur's mitts.  It ends up a Laker ball, however, after scrappy lil' Sasha Vujacic manages to wrestle the Spalding out of the seven footer's grasp.  The possession ends up dry once Okur eventually blocks Drew's shot, but still, a worthy effort from Sloevnia's Favorite son.

6:32 - Vladdy gets a second (and successful) attempt at a trey ball courtesy of Bynum, who funnels the former Cat Stevens' miss and shuttles it to Farmar.  Jordan finds Vlad in the exact same corner as before.  Money.

5:28 - Kwame gets called for the goaltend on AK-47's layup, but I liked the spring in his step getting up for the try.  Pretty quick ups for a guy dealing with a balky knee and ankle.  All in all, Kwame's been more active tonight than I would have expected.

4:15 - Chaos and mayhem under the Jazz bucket, with Kobe, LO, and Kwame all battling in the scrum for the pingponging basketball.  Finally, Odom corrals it, takes two steps and goes

3:10 - Back to back trey balls from a recently T'ed up and very obviously amped up Kobe bust the Laker lead open to a 25-point spread.  I'm no barista, but I think Kobe may have had a second cup of coffee before this here contest.  Dude is seriously hyper and animated. 

2:46 - Lamar for three.  The lead's even wider.

46.7 - KObe's at the line shooting a pair and the "MVP" chants are deafening.  Truth be told, the building has been way louder than normal from start to finish.  I don't know if Laker fans are pissed that SLC residents chose to boo Fish or they're serving 2 for 1 beers somewhere, but there's a lotta heckling, especially Boozer's way.

Halftime - Lakers up a whopping 75-48.  This absolutely has to be the best half this team's played all season.  They're holding Utah to 38% from the field, outrebounding, diming, blocking and even ball-caring ("only" 6 turnovers to the Jazz's 8).  I don't wanna jinx anything, but seriously, this better have the makings of some Critter n' Mihm time come the fourth quarter.  We'll see.

THIRD QUARTER-

Utah opens the third with Kirilenko on the bench.  No idea if it's an injury thing, or something else.

8:07- Timeout Utah, 87-55 LAL.  The Lakers have come out in the third and basically taken any shot the Jazz had at thinking comeback and snuffed it out (knock on wood).  A Fish 3 puts them up by 32, a third of the way throught the third.  12-7 thus far.   And again, they've been active, and are forcing the issue.  A few more minutes of this, and it could be a good time for Javaris Crittenton to get some run. 

BTW, the word on Kirilenko is that he has a strained right biceps tendon, and won't return.  HE hurt it in the first, tried to play with it, but couldn't.  And there's certainly no point in putting him back in for this one.

5:41- Kobe gets an easy lay in off an L.O. feed.  95-63 LAL.  Basically, they're kicking the crap outo f them on every level.  At this point, it'll be a question of how much they actually win by.  It's pretty natrual for the defenisve intensity to go down a touch up by 30+.  It's really just important at this point that they don't get freakishly loose on the other end.  Trading baskets doesn't hurt.

3:14- Really, I'm running out of stuff to say about this one.  They're still up by 30, 96-66.  Coming out of the TO, they still have Kobe, LO, Fish, and Drew on the floor, but I wouldn't expect to see them in the fourth, short of a massive Utah run to end the third.

Wow, that was a terrible call on Drew.  All ball.  Second bad call in a row on AB.  Kwame will come in after the first Boozer FT.

:40- Kobe out of the game.  Hopefully, it stays that way, because if 24 has to return, things have gone horribly, horribly wrong. 

Buzzer: Farmar hits a three, to put the Lakers back up by 32 to end the quarter, 106-74.  No question that was good. 

AK will have the fourth.  Not even he can screw this up.

Fourth Quarter

11:20 - I was about to write that there better be nothing particularly interesting to write about this quarter, but then Sasha went down hard in a scrum and layed on the ground holding his knee for a few seconds.  He got up limping, but seems okay after walking it off for a minute or so.  Glad to see.  Again, after these opening three quarters, that anything interesting would proceed to happen would be more than a little disappointing.

9:29 - One brick of a shot from Vlad Rad.  And by "brick," I mean, hit the backboard and missed the net by at least a foot."  After starting the season out like he was rebounding from last season's disaster, Radmanovic has strung together a series of nothing games for basically the entire month of December.  Assuming Kwame can actually stay on the court following this return to action, that's gonna allow Ronny Turiaf to spend a lot of time at his natural power forward position.  And I have a feeling a lot of those minutes will come at Vlad's expense, unless he can regain some touch and production.

7:37 - The second unit has gotten pretty sloppy, turning the ball over three times and allowing the Jazz to "chip away" (relatively speaking) at the lead.  The latest gaffe involves Farmar, who opts to share the ball with Paul Milsap, who is unfortunately not a teammate.  The ball is shuttled to Hart for an easy bucket.  The lead isn't actually endangered at 20, but you wanna see it increase, not slide the other way.

6:40 - Nice drop step move by Vlad, then the ball on the floor and to the hole for a layup.  That'll help keep his minutes on the northern side of things.

6:17 - The Critter checks in to some pretty enthusiastic applause.  Not sure if the fans really want to see the rook's skills or they just figure he's the human victory cigar equivalent, but either way, a nice reception.

5:19 - Bynum backs down Collins, backs down Collins, then puts up the rock... and it doesn't draw iron.  He may have an alibi, but that shot was U.G.L.Y.

4:14 - A three pointer from Ronnie Price makes it a sub-20 lead for the Lakers.  18, for you math geeks watching.  Again, nothing to be alarmed about.  But if I'm Phil Jackson, nothing to be thrilled about, either.

3:03 - Ronny connect from 18-feet out, bumping the Laker advantage back to 18.  Were I a member of this second unit, I'd be very afraid of tomorrow's practice if the final score doesn't feature a gap of 25 or more.  Maybe I'm overestimating PJ's annoyance at the dwindling returns, given the security provided by the opening three frames.  But I have a feeling I'm not.

I know he's just a rookie, but if I'm the Critter, I'm demanding Vlad Rad buy me a steak dinner after blowing the dunk.  Aside from it being a sweet pass, Javaris needs him some stats.  Each assist counts when you're a third stringer.

Well, there you have it.  123-109, Lakers.  The garbage time in the fourth quarter made his look slightly more competitive than it should have been, but make no mistake, this was a straight up purple and gold ass whuppin'.  All five starters and Farmar off the bench in double figures.  Battle of the boards and dimes won.  9 blocks.  And Kwame returning and actually looking pretty spry after a long layoff.  Not much to bitch about, so you won't hear any on this end.  Thanks for dropping by. 

AK

Time to kick some Utah Jazz azz!!! GO LAKERS!!!!

If Kwame plays tonight will he be able to do anything positive? He hasn't played for a long time...he'll be rusty..will he even attempt to dunk? Or will he just FAIRY roll the ball into the basket?

Nice job by Lamar finding Trevor on the break!

This kid Bynum knows how to finish!!

Kobe got hammered on that drive.

Are these really OUR lakers? man i'm so proud!

I really like Ariza. As soon as he develops that jumper the Lakers are championship contenders. Period.

Here comes Kwame?

Nice pace to this game. No blowout tonight. 2 good teams going at it. Kobe is getting his team involved. It's amazing that when has finishers on the floor what an effective passer Kobe can be. Baby just picked up his 2nd. There may b a Kwame sighting. Stay tuned.

playing OK so far.

Go Lakers!

Playing like they want it more.

I want to see the defense keep this out.

kwame sighting

This whole Kwame/Bynum thing is ridiculous. Entertaining, but ridiculous.

Uncle Mike is predicting the Lakers won't win a championship with "this kind" of basketball - basically Bynum first basketball.

We didn't win a championship the last 2 years either - hell, we didn't even get out of the first round. You can make all the excuses you want, dig into all the stats and whatever, but we didn't get it done. And that was with Kwame.

I'm all for whatever rotations work to get it done at center. Anyone who is dismissing either guy as a solid contributor is just off-base. That's the problem Mike - you've painted yourself in a corner and can't even give the Bynum kid his due, when it's obvious he's a tremendous talent. One-on-one defense? Kwame gets the experience edge, sure.

So what. If we need bodies up front, PJ should go for it. It's not rocket science to figure that out.

But everyone who dismisses Kwame makes a similar mistake. I think Bynum's growth is great for Kwame - it might just allow him to remove the pressure of having to be "the guy" and focus on his strengths. Maybe the competition will spur him on too.

They could be a two-headed monster that will dominate the center position. Revel in it. This whole endless debate is just becoming mind-numbing in its obvious origins - the ego of proving a point.

Let's just enjoy some dominant Lakers basketball!!

(oh and btw: bynum already has 8 and 5 in the 1st 7 minutes of the 1st quarter.....)

Kobe for 3!!!! And then he sets up Fish beautifully. Then another 3. This guy Bryant just might be a keeper. That baseline move on Okur was just sick.

Lamar is looking very good tonight. Aggressive to the cup is his formula for success. Kwame is looking BIG. His size alone makes him valuable.

I hadn't realized that Utah fans boo'd Fisher during the first meaning. I agree with what Stu said.. "Class-Less".

lost in all this is that we can actually use Kwame.

He can give us a legit defensive presence when Bynum is in foul trouble. He can only give us a big body to help defend the big-wigs of the league. It may not be statistically pretty, but there are intangibles in the game that cannot be measured.

Kobe has 6 assists already!!

Lakers attacking the basket at will!!! Nice!!! Good to see Kwame back and playing. Go Lakers!!!

lol, the Jazz are like. Where'd he go?!

Butterfingers is backkkk lol...just fumbled a ball

Damn you Kwame, cost Kobe another assist! Bynum would have caught that pass for sure!

Nice pass from Kobe to Kwame. Kwame has to finish that. Go Lakers!!!

I'm not going to lie, I love to watch Kobe Bryant play basketball. We are lucky to witness this man in his prime. Hell, he's even making Kwame look good!

Not a bad start for Kwame. Surprised he caught that bullet pass by Kobe. So far, so good!

Go Lakers!

Lakers just need to continue to attack the rim because the Jazz can't stop them. Kobe, LO and Bynum are killing in the paint. Kwame played some good minutes and defense. This is why we need everyone healthy because it makes us deeper and stronger. Ariza is really playing well and attacking as well. Go Lakers!!!

OMG THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GAME

GO LAKERS

All is now right in the world. Drew is starting and producing at both ends of the court, Trevor Ariza is out there to provide the team with a long defender/slasher in the starting lineup - and Kwame is coming in off the bench and playing solid D to keep the team in the mix while Drew rests. This team is rounding into shape nicely!!

Ladies and Gentlemen.....the Bench Mob is back!

Ronny T. with some strong D. to open up the second Q.

Second unit has to keep it going. Keep attacking and hustling. Lakers are very active tonight. Go Lakers!!!

It's nice to have Ronny back in PF again.

TAKE IT TO THE JAZZ FOR D-FISH!!!!!

UTAH HAS NO CLASS!

BE PHYSICAL and DESTROY THEM

SEND A MESSAGE!!!!

Is it just me or does Ronny look VERYYYYY HAPPPPYYY to have his position back?

I LOVE THIS LA LAKERS TEAM....

AND ILOVE THIS GAME...

COMMON NOW, ALL OF YOU BLOGGERS!!!!

THIS IS OUR YEAR... NO MORE HATING ON KWAME AND NO MORE BASHING ON ANDREW... THEY ARE OUR LAKERS...

IT WILL SERVE US WELL TO HAVE TWO CENTERS WITH DIFFERENT SETS OF SKILLS TO OFFER. ONE ON DEFENSE AND THE OTHER ON OFFEFNSE... ONE SETTING UP THE OTHER FOR THE KILL...

GO LAKERS!

GO KOBE... SHOW 'EM WHO'S THE MAN...

These boys are playing some ball.
DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES is what AL MICHEALS SAID IN 1980 and what I THOUGHT THIS WAS NECESSARY LATE THIS SUMMER!!!!

Odds of a miracle are looking better.

Kareem Abdul Jabaar has done wonders with Bynum.

ALL HAIL KAREEM!!!

MAN, WHAT A REVERSAL OF FORTUNE!

I CAN'T IMAGINE MIAMI LOOKING THIS LOUSY! WHAT HAPPENED TO THE "15 MAN STRONG"??? AND WHAT HAPPENED TO "D-WADE ABLE TO CARRY THE TEAM"??? - ALL OF THE SUDDEN, HE IS WEAKER THAN EVERYBODY THOUGHT... 8-22 IS JUST PATHETIC... IF KOBE HAVE BEEN IN HIS PLACE RIGHT NOW... ALL THE WORLD WOULD HAVE BEEN SHOUTING HOW HE CAN'T DO THIS, AND CAN'T DO THAT... BUT THIS DWADE GETS A PASS...!!!!

WHAT IN THE WORLD IS HAPPENING TO THE MEDIA?

This is the best I've seen the Lakers play this year. Both units are moving the ball well and the defense is intense. If this team can get consistent contributions from Kwame, Vlad and Ronny T. there's no telling how far they can go. I hope they keep the pedal to the metal for 48 mins.

Oh man, the lakers liik really good

I like that rotation. Bynum to start and then sit with like 4-5 mins left in the first. Then bring in Kwame for the rest of the first. Bring Bynum in with the second unit,, then play Kwame and Bynum together a little, then Close with the starting five. If there is foul trouble Kwame can play more minutes. This is perfect the lakers have a legitimate inside presence with Kwame and Bynum, Lamar is perfect with A rebounding, defensive center. With ariza, Radmanovic and Walton, that is probably one of the top five frontcourt rotations in the league. Kobe is Kobe and the point guard spot is not the best but pretty solid. PLUS WE ARE BRINGING THE DEFENSIVE INTENSITY!!!!

I'M SO EXCITED

Everyone seems to be in rhythym and playing solid defense tonight. Lets keep this up for four quarters. We are definitely more athletic and can play fast break or slow ball. Just attack, attack, attack.

WE ARE NOW UP BY 22 BIG POINTS.

24-46!

THE BENCH MOB IS BACK! GO LAKERS! SHOW THEM WHO'S THIER DADDY AROUND HERE!

Hey we can use KWAME, his value goes up as we depend on him less.
Same for Lamar Odom.

Bynum has created less of a need for Kwame and Odom to be great.

Ariza has created less of a need for Luke to be great.

They can be themselves, just ok role playing ball players.

This team has more Rick Fox's, Robert Horry's, and Derek Fishers than the SHAQ-KOBE Lakers but only 1 SHAQ-KOBE like talent which is KOBE.

By is playing really well...but he needs to learn how to not show the ball as much.

He gets blocked far more than he should.

Join the party, Vlad! Jordan with a lovely drive and finish!

Good challenge by Jordan. That's what we need to close this game out. Challenges on their shots. Nothing easy.

Bench Mob playing really well right now. Everyone contributing. Farmar can drive like that all the time if he wants. LO attacks the rim again and gets fouled. Lakers may get their revenge for the blowout in Utah and for Fish getting booed out there. Go Lakers!!!

Yeah D-Wade gets a pass.
That doesn't even look like Kobe's Lakers from 04-06.
That looks like a pile of SHIT down there in Miami but all hail D-Wade.
Can't do wrong

A LAKER CHAMPIONSHIP would make this a great story ending!!

The ripple effect of having Kwame available in the rotation is very postiive. It lets Ronny get back to PF, a much better spot for him, will let LO play more three, a nice spot, etc. Once Walton is healthy, they have even more flexibility. If 54 can play some 4, they'll have even more.

BK

"Like a snowball rolling down the side of a snow covered hill...it's GROWING!!".....................The Temptations' song describes what is happening with the Lakers!!

well kawame is but and he looks thinner what do ya think mike and yes it is helpful that he is back. but why can't he hold on to a pass, i think it is the speed that it comes at because a rebound is falling not far from peck of arc so maybe if he would do some hand strenghing drills he would do better

I hope we all noticed that the "Bench mob" is back once Bynum was in there with them!

C'mon Lakers! BEAT THEM DOWN!

kwame looks kinda fat.

BEAT THE BRAKES off these boys, give them what they gave us in UTAH!!

OUR DEFENSE ROOOOOCCCCKKKSSSS....

THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT!

MAN, I LOVE THIS TEAM.

Yeah! Good effort.

Crappy refs!

Look at our Lakers!!!

Wow its like Stu is trying to will the Jazz on a run so neg. a play by Ariza and nice pass by KB but he needs io dunk the ball.

did anyone watch the lips of kobe after the tech? Quality words rite there lol

You guys should give mike T a break on this whole Kwame thing. His brain is obviously fried from studying quantum physics so he can't fully put all his efforts into his basketball thinking.

Kobe's blood is up tonight!! Back to back threes!!!

I WONDER WHAT THE GREAT "KLBEAST" IS DOING RIGHT NOW...

YEAH, I REMEMBER HIM.

I WISH HE COULD JOIN US HERE WITH ALLTHE FUN THAT IS GOING ON RIGHT NOW.

GO LAKERS!

Not made for radio Bonez lol. They'd have to bleep a lot.

He's on fire right now though. Wonder if that has to do with the fact that...well he's that good lol.

Paul Simon may be wee, but he took Connie Hawkins to school in a game of One on One. Maybe he's looking to take on Bynum this time.

I have no sympathy for Utah after the way they treated D-Fish upon his return. Fans have no class there, and I hope they enjoy their team's misfortunes. Karma is a bitch!

Gadda love the hustle of Ariza...never said it so here it goes! Welcome to LA LA Land!

Loving Kobe's Leadership! Loving the Lakers overall play.

Go Lakers!

KOBE KOBE KOBE KOBE KOBE!!!!!!!

THE NBA, where KOBE happens.

GO LAKERS!!!

Kobe on fire two 3s in a row niccceee, Lakes are passing ball like they did on xmas and they are playing team dee niccee. This looks like Bulls triangle not shaq

kobe's hot....no?
another 40-50 pts game?

i like to game flow though....anyone can explain, what kobe gets the T for?
btw, why he missed two layups already? fouled?

i am watching it via yahoo sports update ...so kind of missing the visual haha

Man, is Kobe on fire or what?!!! He's got that killer look in his eyes and he doesn't seem to be hurting anymore. With the players he has around him now, he's more dangerous than ever because we have guys who want to play hard and run their butts off. Really nice game so far. Kwame and Drew playing well. Go Lakers!!!

ugly pass by Kobe lol.

Damn it Lamar, just because you're up by 25, you think you can jack up threes like Kobe? No! Let Kobe jack up the threes.

BK,

Don't forget the effect those calves on the game. I've always felt you and AK downplayed the importance of Kwame's calves.

IT'S NOW

44-70 LAKERS.... GO LAKERS.. MAKE THEM PAY FOR THIER INSULT!

On track for 150! BEAT THEM DOWN!!!

He was fouled on one, with no call, i mean butchered
And he missed one of those patented kobe reverses, no reason lol

There's no such things as a foul on Kobe.

He needs to be beheaded before one is called lol.

That was as good of a half of basketball as the Lakers have played in a long, long time. But it's a 48 minute game. They've got to keep the pressure up.

I want to win by 40 or 50. Give them they own medicine!!!

WHEW! WHAT A FIRST HALF THAT WAS!

I TOLD YOU SO... THIS IS THIER 3RD YEAR TOGETHER WITH THE TRIANGLE.. THINGS COME FULL CIRCLE INTHE 3RD YEAR OF EVERY TEAM COACH BY PHIL JACKSON...

GO LAKERS!

LET'S GO STRAIGTH TO THE NBA FINALS!

That was pretty ridiculous (in a good way). 75 points in the first half, 21 assists, 7 for 12 from the three point line, and 20 bench points.

Guys...save some for Sunday!

Let's make the second 24 minutes as good as the first. After what happened in Salt Lake City, the Lakers need to totally put them away in decisive fashion.
Go Lakers!

i like when kobe gets his killer look
but he needs to be careful...sometimes, he pushed things to far and kind of transform him into kobe "the ball hog" or more closely to one man show...

wondering why he's angry though?? anyone?

anyone know a site with free radio to listen to the game?

LA L AKERS LINE FOR THE FIRST HALF...
=================================
26-45 FIELD GOAL SHOOTING = 57.8%
28 REBOUNS: 10 OFF 18 DEF
21 ASSIST ON 26 FIELD GOALS
5 BLOCK SHOTS
WITH ONLY 6 TURN OVERS.
================================

GREAT FIRST HALF. JUST DOMINATING BOTH ON OFFENSE AND DEFENSIVE POSITIONING. NOT TO MENTION THE HUSTLE FLOW.

gO LAKERS!

i dont mean to sound like a party pooper but bynum played most of the first half with the second unit and his body language didnt look to good i think hes not to happy bout that .....good first half doh GO LAGUNERROS

just sick. lakers look crazy sick. if they can continue this all year, NO ONE in the west is scary. what's even more baffling, this has been the same team as last year and the year before!! talk about progress!

LAKERS SHOWING HOW EASY THE BASKETBAL IS!!!

Lakers look much more powerful with a healthy squad because so many people have improved and from last year and the addition of veteran Fisher and the athletic Ariza. Stay focused and hungry team, because the West is looking a little more wide open this year. Keep up the hard work!!!

Kobe 5/7 three pointers, are you kidding me? Go for the record, your own record!

Bzar

I'll take 140 lol

WTF, 75 points, is it a new record or something. Is there any higher than 75 points after halftime?

What is the record of the most points in a half for this season? is this the first one?

watch it here guys...

http://channelsurfing.net/

Hey faith I think you are right, of al the superstars I think Kobe gets the least calls, UPSETS ME GREATLY IT DOES !!!!!!!!!!!

23 DAYS TO GO BEFORE ALL STAR BREAK...

23 DAYS TO GO BEFORE ALL STAR BREAK...

23 DAYS TO GO BEFORE ALL STAR BREAK...

LET'S GO OUT AND VOTE! FOR KOBE, LAMAR

LET'S GO OUT AND VOTE! FOR KOBE, LAMAR
LET'S GO OUT AND VOTE! FOR KOBE, LAMAR

Does anyone notice that on that FSN commercial for the Lakers post game show with Turiaf swatting someone, he says "Get that **** outta here!" Kinda funny that they would have that commercial and not bleep him out, even though it's kind of hard to hear what he's saying.

Interesting that Kirilenko is not starting. I didn't hear of any injury.

THIS IS WHERE OUR BENCH CAN REALLY HELP.

THEY KEEP THIS UP AND LET THE STARTERS REST O N THE BENCH FOR SUNDAY SHOWDOWN WITH THE CELTICS...

Kobe picking up where he left off! I love this game!
