I predict we will look back at this game at the end of the season amd remember it at the game we turned tbe corner. Remember it as the game Ben McLemore's NBA testicals dropped. That Afflola decided instead of not giving an F about his play he will not give an F about performance enhancing drugs. That WCS will put down the pipe and learn that rebounds dont hurt people, its the people elbowing you in the face thats hurting people. That Rudy finally says "I want to be the robin to batman, that I am a good robin and there is nothing wrong with being that. In fact im proud im good enough to be a robin and instead of trying to show im a Jordan im going to the best Pipen i can.....etc etc

Rebounding has been a real weakness for us for a while now and the Lakers are 3rd in offensive and 7th in defensive rebounding. We were -20 against the Jazz and double digits less in our games vs. NY.
I hope we can start to change these numbers. We have been doing very well with our turnovers while causing opponents to turn the ball over at a high level. The Jazz average 12 and they turned it over 24 times. However when you allow opponents 20 more rebounds in a game then you, 20 more opportunities to score than you, you are really shooting yourself in the foot.

I hope we get some redemption against them after our last meeting. Regardless of playoff aspirations, draft pick wizardry, which of our players or front office personnel is the target of ire for the week..

YOU BEAT THE LAKERS!

A young team on a losing streak who feels "this is one we can get" is a dangerous combo. Kings have to win this one. A loss here probably sends team down huge spiral. We play Memphis, Houston and Dallas on the road next. 8-16 with three more road games coming could be deathnail.

My starting lineup: Boogie/Rudy/Casspi/Collison/Temple(king's shumpert).

This lineup is the best squad we can have scoring wise and form wise+Temple for the roughness(while Barnes his replacement).

I think that if coach Dave will run with this squad and back it up, the Kings will get enough W, to sneak into the palyoffs.

To be even a better team, Kings strategy should be in finding a very competent center...
it will be a very good side if beside of Boogie we could have a good center... and that's it, that will be a very good team.
Boogie/good center/Gay/Casspi/Collison = monster team(inside/outside/points/rebounds)... that should be Divac's strategy(as i see it).

I'll be on break for this one but spotlight on Cousins recent inefficient perimeter game. If conditioning is bothering him and it's easier for him to not work for position or run 4/5 of the court to the elbows, I don't mind. Coaching has to stop it

Good starting lineup but I would substitute Lawson and Tolliver for Collison and Temple.

Winnable tonight but we might just be the patsy the Lakers need to break their loss record.

In any event I'll be there with bells on.

If I remember correctly, dmc had some words with randle last game. Let's hope he backs it up tonight.
Handles going to pick up where he left off. The whole laker strategy will be to chip at demarcus. We will need barnes to give it back and have boogies back. This will be an epic game.

Mannnnn.... This is about to start and I don't even care a little. It's on in the background, but I'm not paying any attention at all.

What a shame this season has been. :(
