    nba playoffs are boring compared to the final 4. at least the first few rounds...

    for betting nothing beats the NCAA tourney... well except for NFL... [​IMG]

    I wouldn't really be afraid for the Lakers right now... unless they blow game 2.

    Paul just is the Laker's Kryptonite... a great/athletic (at least this afternoon) point guard ready to toast either Fisher or Bryant.

    It was scary seeing kobe trying to pick up Paul (when he demanded to guard him for about 3 possessions in the 4th... because if he really would clamp down D on Paul... he'd probably gas himself trying... and have nothing left to finish on the offensive end.

    Paul just baited fisher into ticky-tack fouls to force them into the penalty so early.

    Gasol killed his team tonight. No way should he have let little Carl Landry own the paint like that. And he's out there shooting 20 footers when he should be killing em on the block

    which is why this loss is nothing to worry about. kobe played great and gasol will bounce back in the next one. just need better d on CP3

    the celtics didn't really deserve that win. there was some "home cooking" with that offensive foul call on carmelo.

    still a win's a win.

    refs gotta learn to let players decide close games themselves

    there was no advantage game no harm done on that physical play between pierce/melo

    then refs compounded it by letting pierce push off melo on the next posession

    complete bullshit

    Does Amare not even factor into the last two minutes of the game? Or does it always run through Melo?

    While I agree with you, having to say that over and over again the last couple weeks has become pretty annoying.

    i dont get the lakers. no sense of urgency. odom is right, they need to be humbled to get their mind right on track. dont overlook anyone and keep focus on the moment. not sure why we cant just go to the strategy that beat the hornets 4x during the regular season.

    now it's like"omigod, what are we going to do about chris paul?? do we have any answer for him??" of course you idiots, how did we win the regular season games? just look at those. it's not like the reg season games are TOTALLY different from playoff games. it is still the game of basketball. i dont recall adding another member on the floor making the game of 6 on 6 in playoffs. it is the SAME game.

    The Lakers just needed Pau to show up, fucking dude was getting schooled by Landry driving past him like his foot was rooted to the hardwood. Then what does he do on the offense, shoot 18 footers when he can be unstoppable in the post. Dude averaged 24/13 against this team in the regular season and even with Okafor in foul trouble yesterday, dude still stinked it up in the game and played soft.

    Yea the talk of the Lakers not being able to guard Paul is not entirely accurate IMO, at least after watching game 1. Sure he lit up the stat line but there were many shots he hit where a hand was in his face, falling away, or tough shots around the rim. He just hit tough shots
