Five things to watch in Lakers-Suns matchup

570842801.What kind of minutes will Kobe Bryant provide? -- Though Lakers Coach Phil Jackson maintained he would limit Bryant's minutes at the beginning of the regular season, he said he'd remain flexible about Bryant's playing time,  based on his comfort level and game situations. In the Lakers' 112-110 season-opening victory Tuesday over the Houston Rockets, Bryant scored 27 points on eight of 20 shooting in 37 minutes, a significant improvement in both shooting percentage and minutes compared to his preseason stat line of 12.6 points on 28.2% shooting in 21.6 minutes per contest.

Without citing specifics, Jackson said he may alter Bryant's minutes in the Lakers' (1-0) game Friday in Phoenix (1-1) because they host Golden State at home Sunday, leaving Bryant less room for recovery time.  

 2. How will the Suns look without Amare Stoudemire? - Stoudemire's departure to New York this off-season because of free agency prompted Suns guard Steve Nash to publicly doubt the team's chances of making the postseason.

"To be honest, if I was outside this picture and a betting man, I would probably pick us to be outside of the playoffs, considering all the changes and the new guys, Nash told the SB Nation Arizona's Seth Pollack.

Of course,  Bryant doesn't feel bad for Phoenix's off-season adversities, including losing Stoudemire to free agency and Leandro Barbosa in a trade.

"Good. We'll beat the hell out of them," Bryant said. "That's not my problem. We beat them in the playoffs last year, but they used to kick our butt all time in the playoffs. So I have no sympathy."

The Lakers offered many opinions on how much Stoudemire's departure affects the Suns, considering he averaged 25 points last season in the West Finals against the Lakers and partly contributed to Andrew Bynum getting in foul trouble. Bryant pointed out the Lakers won't have to "double-team a guy in the post." Jackson observed Stoudemire's penchant for high-percentage shots inside that he created, thanks to how perfect he and Steve Nash ran the screen and roll will no longer be an issue, considering center Robin Lopez has struggled so far replicating that same chemistry with Nash. And Lakers forward Derek Fisher actually argued the absence could prove more difficult, considering the Lakers' defense would have to space out more since Hedo Turkoglu, Channing Frye, Jason Richardson, Grant Hill  and Josh Childress can play from the wings.

"I'm sure at times, they'll miss the physicality and power Amare played with, Fisher said. "But I think as time goes on, their ability to shoot the ball from the perimeter complements Nash's penetration ability. I think it'll balance out a little bit. Teams like ours, it may be tough, because you got to have size in the middle, but catching us without Andrew Early and Theo [Ratliff] banged up a little bit, we'll still have to go in there and get some work done."

Although it's one game, Phoenix forward Hakim Warrick demonstrated in the Suns' 110-94 victory Thursday against the Utah Jazz that he knows a thing or two about the screen and roll. All the various contributions tie into what Phoenix Coach Alvin Gentry has described as a "continuity offense." Though the Lakers won't have to worry about Stoudemire, the Lakers still have issues. The Lakers' front-court remains fairly thin with Andrew Bynum rehabbing his right knee, backup center  Ratliff nursing a sore left knee and Derrick Caracter remaining understandably raw. Still, the Lakers should hold their own against Phoenix, which conceded 18 offensive rebounds in its 106-92 season-opening loss Tuesday to Portland.

"The combination between Stoudemire and Nash has been great in the last two years so that'll be a little timing," Jackson said. "But Phoenix will still be a good team."

3. Can the Lakers keep up with the Suns? Phoenix still maintains that run-and-gun style, and Pau Gasol proclaims he's looking forward to it.

"It'll be up-tempo there, but I think I like running," he said. "I can run up and down the floor. It'll be good for the conditioning too."

Surely it will. Aside from the conditioning Lakers forward Lamar Odom got this summer from the 2010 FIBA World Championship, Jackson emphasized all preseason that no one else on the team looked in peak form. That's obviously still an issue considering the Lakers have only played one game. And there's no better game to test that endurance level than against a quick team such as Phoenix. Plus, the speed Steve Blake and Shannon Brown provided off the bench against Houston shows the Lakers have a unit that could provide that spark plug.

Still, the Lakers shouldn't embrace the up-tempo offense too much. The Lakers played horrible first-half defense against Houston, primarily because their shot selection, poor rebounding (53-44), conditioning and overall hustle exposed the Lakers on transition defense. With the Lakers still ironing out defensive rotations, there's no need for them to force the issue.

4. Will this be a game of matchups?

There's many reasons why this could be a significant variable. Jackson's expecting a big game out of Odom, who's experienced plenty of success against Phoenix in the postseason, posting playoff career highs in points (33 on May 2, 2007), field goals (13 on May 2, 2007), assists (nine on May 4, 2006), rebounds (19 in the Lakers' Game 1 victory last season in the West Finals) and offensive boards (seven in the same game).

"He has a perennial space in which he's done really well," Jackson said of Odom, who posted 14 points and 10 rebounds along with four turnovers in the season opener. "Obviously it's a open floor game. His rebounding and his capability of pushing the ball against this team has always been a big factor."

Considering the Lakers' thin front line and the Suns lacking anyone to truly defend it, Gasol wouldn't be surprised if Ron Artest and Matt Barnes moved to power forward and Devin Ebanks received playing time, two questions that went unanswered because Jackson cut his interview fairly short after Thursday's practice. It wouldn't be surprising either for Jackson to pull Fisher early if he struggles guarding Nash, given Blake saw increased playing time  because he held Houston guard Aaron Brooks to six second-half points. He burned Fisher in the first half with 18. Though Sasha Vujacic didn't see the floor in the season opener, Jackson is considering matching him up with Goran Dragic because of their contentious history, but it remains uncertain considering Vujacic's the last man on the back-court depth chart and Dragic is nursing a sprained left knee.

5. Can the Lakers exploit the Suns' short rest? The Lakers spent the last two days practicing since their season opener on Tuesday, a rarity the team experienced in the preseason, what with the training camp consisting of a weeklong trip to Europe, followed by six games in 10 days. The Suns haven't been so fortunate, as they enter Friday's game off a back-to-back in Utah. So with all the talk about Phoenix's fast-paced style, it's the Suns that may have to pace themselves.

"It's not a lot of fun," Fisher said of back-to-backs. "We all have to do it at some point. It's their turn now. I'm sure it will be our turn later."

Hi guys,

Just wanted to drop by again and say hello to all my Laker pals. Larry? Justa? You guys still around? I'm shooting for 10 days to be back online and back to watching Laker games.

Have a great day.

Wes

Good stuff from Kobe to help get us in the right mid set for tonight's contest.
Bryant doesn't feel bad for Phoenix's off-season adversities, "Good. We'll beat the hell out of them," Bryant said. "That's not my problem. We beat them in the playoffs last year, but they used to kick our butt all time in the playoffs. So I have no sympathy."...Paradise!
I know Mamba covered this in the last thread, but I thought I go with the Live version to further help get us into the right frame of mind - ah yes, the fabulous Sade Adu...

Thanks Mamba24...now I got my mojo...justa's funky music selection helped too...

Tonight we go into the desert and show Nash and the Suns, their window has closed...We have the speed to match up, though not as dominant in the paint without AB. Will it be a fast pace game...can we stop the Sun's run and gun...better yet, can they stop ours...can't wait to see..

That's right baby!!! I want to see them beat the crap out of this PHX team!! GAME DAY!! WATCH OUT PHUNS!!!

GO LAKERS!!!

Goooooooood morning Laker fam...

Thank God it's gameday!!! Mamba, as always, un..freakin'..believable Roll Call baby! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO ON THIS BLOG!

I think tonight will be a great opportunity to let our bench run with the Suns. Blake, Shannon and the rest of the crew should have some fun tonight. Starters should get a nice comfy lead early and Kobe, Fish, and Pau can get some rest.

Oh my caption for the Kobe/Fish ring photo...

Fish: "You are MY man..."

Kobe: "My brother...This one was the sweetest..."

Fish: "I'll go to battle with you anytime..."

Kobe: "That's why you had to come back, there's some business in Miami we have to handle..."

What a great morning in BB: Lakers game tonight!

What a great morning in music: wild and funky, early '80's, some nice guitar playin' brother/brothers. Gah... I am truly not up to this. I must try and find something that can bridge the the gestalt. But what? Guitar brothers funkiness, early '80's. Hmm....

'Good. We'll beat the hell out of them'

Uh oh...there goes Kobe counting his Kobe's before they are hatched.

Me thinks unwise to dis dat way.

Go Kings!
Go San Francisco Giants! Fear the beard!

Sonnybelfast

Good morning everyone and good afternoon from the UK!

Looks like this will be a very interesting game tonight. I'm thinking that PHX will try to go especially small tonight, considering that Lopez is the only player around 7 feet who regularly plays inside.

I hope Ron Ron is ready to do some banging in the post as well.

@NMLL… Oh, Lass. I loved both the song and the movie. In fact, I don’t think you could hear the song and not think of the movie. One of those romantic films that you see as a teenager that you never forget. Percy Faith. Haven’t thought of him for 40 years. LOL. Yes, we are dating ourselves but who cares. Youth is more in the mind than the body. At least that’s what I keep telling myself. LOL.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
@Mamba… The Platters. WoW! I loved the Great Pretender. Thanks for the links. You da man. One thing about all these links is that it is dredging up memories and associations that I have not thought of for years. Music not only makes the world go round but it also may be the best cure for Alzheimer’s.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
@MM… Another great article. I loved the quotes from Kobe about the Suns. Pretty much sums up the attitude of the blog. Good to see Kobe is in touch with the Blog-Sync-Think or vice versa. Doesn’t matter that Nash is the only one left from ’06 and ’07. On the hate meter after the Celtics and now the Heat, come the Suns. I will miss Drew owning Stoudemire, however. Still remember that Xmas game.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
TOM

Caliiiii...how are you? What the heck are you doing in the UK?

I think tonight will be a great opportunity to let our bench run with the Suns. Blake, Shannon and the rest of the crew should have some fun tonight. Starters should get a nice comfy lead early and Kobe, Fish, and Pau can get some rest.

You haven't seen my iTunes collection. Drugs are waaaaay cheaper.

hey all,

Gotta do quick hit as I gotta go watch my youngest son do his costume day parade at school.

To all a little relaxing music before the game so we are energized at game time.

Mamba24,

You are on the roll today w/ MM constant change of thread before the fallen leaves touches the ground. You need to summon the Laker faithful to the game tonight, it's not a gimme especially if we are visitors and Suns are eager for a payback. If Lakers hop and keep on missing shots, we'll be in trouble. They have to pound the middle frequently and on defense Lakers should only give 3inches allowance: face to face, chest to chest and knee to knee cuz' Suns are dangerous on the perimeter. That's all they've got, half of Sun's total score comes from 3 pts.

The Lakers appear to be more focused now that the ring ceremony is behind them. I like the attitude even if it's the second game of the season. It's interesting to note the different assessment of the Suns that Fisher and Kobe have. I think that's what makes them great teammates, they balance each other. The Suns will be a wildcard team this year. They just beat Utah at home, a game I thought Utah would have won. The lack of sympathy from Kobe and the cautious optimism from Fish will prevail tonight. Go Lakers.

JustaLakerFan - good Pat choice. I see your Pat and toss in some of Pat's buddy Mick Goodrick on guitar: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jc2Jj9VqYbU

So - I've been doing some thinking (I know - scary) about the public outcry over why you haven't seen my profile yet. I've come to a very difficult decision, and I hope you'll see things my way and be supportive.


I think the only way to proceed to have a raffle - like what RonRon's doing with his ring - for the right to post my profile. All proceeds will go toward buying us blog T-shirts. At the end of the raffle, my profile gets posted.


THIS IS FREAKING GENIUS!! It's a win-win. Y'all get to see my awesome profile (and believe me - it's awesome) and we all get blog t-shirts. What could possibly go wrong?


This is a huge committment I know, but it's a sacrifice I am willing to make. You have no idea how difficult this is for me. BUT - I must proceed and give the people what they want.


So - ticket prices for the raffle are $2 each - min 10. We'll stick to Ron's outline. Please send cash or money order to my Cayman off-shore account with Gotcha Bank - account name is 'Sucker born every minute'. They know me there - don't worry.


Hurry people and make your donation. Deadlines are looming and we don't want anyone to be disappointed. PLUS - we all need those blog T-shirts right away. We could be walking past each other on the street and never even know it. How sad is that.


Remember - I'm taking one for the team here. I could just have MM post my profile and be done with it, but then no one would get a blog T-shirt. And no one wants that, right? I'm just thinking of the greater good. I'm just that much of a philanthropist, humanitarian and downright decent human being.


Edwin Gueco - nice summation of possibilities. I agree; if we clank a lot of long shots, it's going to be a loooong night. But I see Lamar having some fun and him and Pau having some nice interior passing and in-da-paint baskets galore.

No it's not a gimme, but what I'm gonna give you is an....OUT FREAKIN STANDING SIR!!! But if the Real Laker Girls: EastCoastJessie, LongTimeLakerLover and Justanothermambafan aren't worried, I'd say we should be able to relax a touch. LOL!

Is Rick F out of the hospital now? Let's ask Benjamin. How about providing I-tunes for our recovering brother to relieve the pain and boredom. On Wes, Flu plus non working PC makes Wes a dull boy. Anyway, as long as you survived those twister in your area, you're in better place than others. What happened to Fatty? if it's not twister, it's the flood. he must be preparing for trick or treat.

Well, there is something to be thankful if we woke up alive this morning......

justanothermambafan - the guilt of not showing your profile is slowly eating away at you. Don't bother to deny it. You hear it in the night, trying to sleep:

"The hellish tattoo of doing the profile increased. It grew quicker and quicker, and louder and louder, every instant. MM's terror must have been extreme! It grew louder, I say, louder every moment!"

(With regrets to Mr. Poe.)

RE: RICK FRIEDMAN


Rick just gave me a quick call - he sounds GREAT. Yesterday's treatment went really well and he's extremely upbeat today. He's hoping that he'll be released to go home sometime next week, if all goes well.


He is very touched by the outpouring of well wishes from his Laker family. He can't even describe how great it makes him feel to know that we, like his family, are rallying around him in this time of need. I'm sending snippets of the bandwagon to him little by little, and he is really enjoying them a lot! He believes that our thoughts and prayers are helping him recover, so we're doing our job here!


I'll let you know more as I hear it....

63 - you're still going first. Notice that YOU were the first to comment? I'd say me thinks thou dost protest too much....

I'm You Tube Firewalled at work...so can one of you link up "Wishin and Hopin" by Dusty Springfield and dedicate it to Sonny Belfast?

So glad to hear the good news regarding Rick Friedman. NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF PRAYER...AND LOVE!

So - ticket prices for the raffle are $2 each - min 10. We'll stick to Ron's outline.

Just sheer and utter Genius. I'm ordering a thousand myself at this very moment. This is truly a marvelous thing you are doing and such a great sacrifice on your part. I just weep *sniff* *sniff* at the greatness of what you are doing BLESS YOU FABULOUS!! Us little people down here, we thank you and will sing praises to your name.

What a noble and thoughtful touch justanothermambafan has shown this morning. She should receive the keys to the Blog already. Ron Ron has nothing on you. I will be buying my raffle tickets pronto. I'm even more anxious to see the profile and get to know the person behind all the humanity.

GOD&&^$#!!! My Density keeps geting Blocked!!! Carry On!

@JAMF - I have to call shenanigans on the blog t-shirt. Ron Ron isn't raffling tickets for $2 for a minimum of ten, it's for a minimum of five!

Blog God sir, Ron Ron is one thing. But we are talking about the Profile of The Fabulous Justanothermambafan here!!!

justanothermambafan - "I'd say me thinks thou dost protest too much...." I've ALWAYS protested too much... what's that got to do with it?

Great to hear about Rick feeling. I don't know the guy, except through his writings (and, of course, his world-renowned Award), but being healthy is everything, and I hate to hear of anyone (even opposing teams' players) being "under the weather" in any way.

Oops - meant to say: Rick feeling "better," not just feeling (though that's good, too).

That's right Kobe...it's not over with Phoenix.

Over? Did you say over? It's not over til we say its over!

JAMF, you win for MHRCOTD (Most Hilarious RCOTD).

I wired the money to your account via SomeDayIWillWintheLotto Credit Union. Hope it gets there in a timely fashion.

Mamba24, as Justa said, its GAAAAAMMMMEEE DAY BABY!!!
The Roll Call is the stuff as usual!

UTZ, leave Sonny alone (wishing and hoping and hoping and wishing) LOL!!!

Sonny,

Well let's see I think the Suns have a track record of thinking they were better than the Lakers and talking much ish. Kobe's just spitting his truth and I'm all good with that! When it comes to the Phoenix Suns he can count all the chickens that he wants, cause the Laker Blog Fam know he's gonna bring it and he ain't just talkin'. They are going to beat the hell outta the Suns!

Go Kobe!
Go Lakers!

justanothermambafan - some Nigerians with Bank of America in London just said I won 4.6 million dollars. Can I just wire that to your account for the raffle?

MM - yeah - typo - my eyes were blinded from the tears I've been crying over this HUGE sacrifice I'm making....

63 Footer - 4.6 MILLION????


DING DING DING!!!!


WE HAVE A WINNER LADIES & GENTLEMEN!!!!


4.6 million is a LOT of T-shirts baby...


Hey... wait a second.... did you say Nigerians??? Why I aughtta.... I'm not falling for that either 63. Get that weak ISH outta here!



Another great read MM before heading into the weekend, starting with a game tonight.

Let's see what Kobe has in store for us in Phoenix. He sounds like he's itching to remind the rest of the L how complete his game is.

Let's go Lakers!

@Justa - Thanks for the good news on Rick Friedman. Yes, your selection was quite funky. And Nash licking his fingers, then hair touch...ugh.

@Mamba - I wasn't familiar with that one hit wonder. They may be downgraded to 1/2 a hit wonder...lol. As far as Jalen goes...yes he's a Detroiter, but he's also a U-M man...so that's 50/50.

@LakerTom - Good call on that Christmas Day game when Drew made Amare say uncle was the turning point for me. It was the day I knew the Lakers were back!

@Winston - clever guitar brothers and brothas

@Lew - good 80's stuff. How can anyone now be happy listening to Love Shack. And that Bangkok is always good for a laugh. I'll throw this back at you.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V83JR2IoI8k

@63 Footer- very nice melding job!

@Edwin - Yes sir, Thank God for everyday!

I "got a feeling" its wrong to talk about Funk and not acknowledge the man known as the hardest working man in show biz...

On the Suns playing a back to back against the Lakers tonight,

'I'm sure it will be our turn later'.

Yea, right Fish.

But don't forget to mention that 'your turn' will include
several fewer back-to-backs than other potential playoff teams.

Must be nice starting the season off will a few cushy games at home.

Go Kings!
Go San Francisco Giants! Fear the beard!
Are the douche-bag cheaters gonna get spanked by the Ducks? Hee Hee
Better train hard Manny, or you will lose this one. Can't let that happen!

Mamba's Morning Band wagon....Love it!! Thanks for the links, I'm impressed with your knowledge of music!! Was surprised the Sun's beat the Jazz in their house!! We better bring it on tonite... I LOVE game day.

LRob - MISTER James Brown is in da house! And Thomas Dolby? It was a mad, mad time at the beginning of the '80's.

80's, guitars AND Aussies: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JsbnPaMRHms

@UTZWORLD

AMEN brother!

If we can get back to being one of the best defenders of the three point line, then we will have no problem with the Suns. I don't hold any ill will towards them because they are no threat to us. But, I still remember D'Antoni's old quote about "busting us every year in the playoffs" so I will always root against his team.

We better bring it on tonite... I LOVE game day. Posted by: NewMexicoLL | October 29, 2010 at 10:09 AM

Have no fear this one has blow out written all over it and I do mean the Lakers blowing out the Suns. As for my knowledge of music, it can't hold a candle to LRob among all the other things he knows so much about the man is a musical savant! I think this is going to be a very fun game tonight. The 1st quarter might be kind of close but after that all Lakers!! My prediction...Lakers by 24!!!

mclyne - yup, up that perimeter D, and we're cool. Kobe just has a memory like an elephant: anyone who's ever beaten him at any time since the beginning of time... he shall remember.

SWEET JESUS!!! IT'S GOOD TO BE A LAKERHOLIC!!! THANK YOU LORD!!!

Mamba24- The GODFATHER, great roll call, can you keep this up for all 82 games? Hell yes you can.

JUSTA- Thanks for the update on Rick, Our prayers will continue to be with him.

Good day ladies and gents, another great day in LAKERVILLE. Eating lunch in Nieman Marcus the other day and Phil Jackson comes in towering over everyone, heading upstairs to the suit department... Wait a minute, there's no suits his size, guess he'll get a tie. Can't wait till TIPOFF, another WIN.

OH, AND MM...OUT FREAKIN STANDING POST BLOG GOD!!!!!!!!!!!

LRob- You seen to be the man with all the music, question. What song did Jimi Hendrix play with the Isley Brothers while he was in the group? LOL

Getting to Africa was the most difficult part...visa issues, etc.
Once there though, the rest went without a hitch. Was in and out of the airport in Ghana, and on my way back home to Thailand within 2 hours.

We were told however, to expect only 4 co-signers, when in fact there were 11 of us. This cut into our shares significantly, and I was able to secure only a portion of the money that was promised.

Of the 6 million that was promised, I walked out of there with less than a third of that. It was a total scam! Sorry, can't afford no raffle tickets, but if you want to see pics of justa, justa let me know. Justa kiddin.

Go Kings!
Go Giants!

@LRob, Damn! I'm breaking out in a COLD SWEAT http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DXh4gJVgS0

Incredible work being done on the blog this morning:

healing the sick... GOOO R FRIEEEEEDMAAAAAAN!

Selfless altruism: justanothermambafan's inspired offer has brought the long suffered and essential issue of blog T shirts back into the light. Could the irresistible force that is justa possibly move the cash strapped entity that is the LA Times into making this happen?

And then there's a basketball game? Shocked to see the Suns battle Utah

OK FOLKS IT'S ABOUT THAT TIME: http://tinyurl.com/ylp3qqc _ I Love LA
Come on sing it with me: I LOVE LA, I LOVE LA, THERE'S NO PLACE I'D RATHER BE, .........

Justa - thanks for the update on Rick F.
Mamba - as usual, loving the morning game day roll.

MM - nice post. I think I am liking this 5 things to know on game day. Gives a good overview of gossip, players thoughts and summary.

GO LAKERS!!

Cheers - PLG

@2phatt/Mamba - I knew Jimi played with the Isleys but wasn't sure on what songs. I thought he was on a whole album? Any here's the two I think you guys are talking about...

Sonny,

There's a lot of things you write that are funny. And I don't mean "funny" like "haha."

But I gotta draw the line at any shots hurled in Justa's general direction. I can understand how you're lonely up there in Sac-town. I mean, I've been there. It's not pretty. And your basketball team SUCKS. But leave Justa alone, lest you bring the wrath of the blog upon you.

Go Lake Show!

NOW WHERE IS OUR QUEEN FAITH!! Unless she makes an appearance, I'm afraid we will have to cancel the game, because there simply cannot be a game without FAITH!

OUT FREAKIN STANDING SIR!!!!! KUDOS!!!

I will take Allen Iverson over Sasha or Von Wafer even at this stage of his career. It is awkward to see Allen Iverson playing in Turkey for 2 million while players like Sasha Vujacic, Von Wafer, Radmanovic, Stojocavic, Chucky Atkins are still in the NBA.


Allen Iverson is 35 years and just like Ray Allen and Rip Hamilton he still can play.


Andrew Early? Not for surgery, that's for sure.
