Bryant, coming off a miserable game, making eight of 25 shots with two assists, honored his media commitments and then made his way to the team bus. He stopped for one more question: Why should anyone think the Lakers can keep this thing going the way this series has unfolded?

"I'm telling you right now," Bryant said. "We'll win Tuesday."

I guarantee Kobe will shoot a lot. And miss a lot too.

Kobe is not rasheed, he lacks the meaness to back it up. Oh he'll try. Just like he did in the last 4 minutes last night, and the Pistons will win by 20.

When Rasheed made that guarantee, I knew Detroit would play well.

But Detroit has completely outplayed the Lakers. Sorry, they don't win.

Lakers, of course. Lakers have been outplayed. Out hustled. And out willed. Kobe can't back his words by himself. This is a team game, and other than Shaq and Kobe, no one else has come to play.

Funny, but all of the sudden I feel that not only will the Lakers win tuesday, but go on to win the title? Be honest now, would you be shocked if that actually happened?

Normally I would be feeling taht way, since they ARE the luckiest damn team in the world.

BUT, they are just outclassed this time. It is over for them.

Big dif between sheed and Kobe. sheed said it and his teamates rose up to cover his back. I don't think kobe should turn his back to his teamates...they might druther stick something in it.

I thought the Lakers had their shot last night.

They've played hard two games in the series. One they won on a last second shot when the Pistons did some dumb things down the stretch. The other was last night.

Shaq had a monster game last night on 2 days' rest. And he played 47 minutes. Anyone think he can have anything like that tomorrow?

BTW - props to him. I haven't seen him that active on offense in years. Too bad he's too slow to effectively defend any more.

If Detroit keeps their focus and intensity tomorrow, they win. That's how I see it anyway.

I thought it was VERY obvious last night that the OT loss had taught the Pistons a very valuble lesson. They did everything right to protect their lead last night. That is one of my knocks against the Pacers. They don't seem to remember these lessons. (Portland and SA come to mind...DUNK THE DAMN BALL REGGIE!! DUNK THE DAMN BALL!!! [size=9] I knew it, dammit, I just F8* knew it![\size])

Another thing to that seperates Kobe from Sheed is that Sheed's teammates acually like him and are willing to rally behind him.

Kobe, on the other hand, isn't in the same situation.
