Wow. Chitown just lost to the Atl 103 to 95. Maybe Indiana was that bad. Go Lakers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dallas is a great shooting team. Guys like Dirk and Jason Terry will have nights when they are hot and will make the Lakers look bad.

On the other hand, teams that rely on shooters cannot go deep in the playoffs and the Lakers will prevail over a full series.

does anyone have a link for the lakers game

I hate PJ letting these huge runs happen without a Time Out!

It is on TNT!

Wow! Talk about the refs gift wrapping a game for the Mav's.
Questionable call on Pau against Dirk with 20 seconds sends him to the line, and then on the other end, Kobe gets pushed to the floor by Kidd with two hands on his waist with not only no call, but two free throws for Kidd. Combine that with the Mav's being allowed to push with both hands in the back in the low post ALL GAME and you have some serious questions on if this series will be called fair. I don't think Stern wants another Laker title.

Wow........Are you serious? Lakers fans crying about officiating is always comical to me. It's the equivalent of the Nazi Party coming out to condemn mass genocide. Check the box score please and refer to free-throws attempted for both teams. The Lakers nearly doubled the Mavs free throw attempts. So, Pau going through Nowitski's back on the inbound wasn't a foul? Really? But, the four free throws with 2 seconds left in the first half were all on the up & up I suppose. Don't you worry, the refs are gonna' come out whistles a' blazing for the Lakers on Wednesday, believe that. Both of Dallas' bigs, (Chandler/Haywood), will be in foul trouble and on the bench before the 1st qtr. is through, guaranteed. The NBA is first and foremost a business.......a BIG business. David Stern is a businessman, and he is not in the business of losing out on money. If you think for one second that the "commish" is gonna' allow a Memphis/Atlanta or OKC/Chicago finals, then you haven't been objectively watching the NBA the last 25 years. How many t-shirts, flags, jerseys, and ad-spots would those match ups sell? The big money is gonna' come from a Lakers/Heat showdown, period. But don't listen to me, I'm just a fan watching the playoffs who doesn't care for either L.A. or Dallas. I just want to see the best team, playing the best ball at this time go all the way. Go throw on some "real," objective NBA reporting like Vic "The Brick" Jacobs if it'll make you feel better. We'll see how long this comment stays up on a Lakers Angeles Times message board.

correct, he s/h passed the ball to someone in a better position who would've scored thus getting assist, thus the Lakers getting more points, thus getting a win. Yea, that's my feeling, I'm gonna stick with that, lol.
