    We have been out west all week while they had back-to-back games in Florida and then had to fly back out to LA, so they should be on the tired side. So with that said we need to feed the bigs early and often tonight, sure the Lakers will get some blocks mixed in but they will also get some fouls.

    Get one of their two big men in foul trouble and their weak bench gets even more exposed and it forces the other big to play around 40 min. If that happens we take this game easy even if Kobe goes over 40 points again.

    Lakers are still great on their home court so I am not going to crucify anyone if they lose. Still, I'd love a win in order to even out the loss to the Kings.

    All in all, it is gonna be a very important test. I'll be glad if we play good basketball.

    In response to the donahue guy: The spurs used to use George Hill against Kobe. Apparently (from what our coach and others have said) he did a decent job.

    So we had lost 14 in a row in LA against the Lakers before last season, right? It's gonna be tough to make it 2 in a row. Everyone would be feeling pretty good about us then though.

    Rasho still was a great Center before retiring.

    He would have to do a postgame a day or two after the game to do that. This is just someone who thinks vlogs are new . lol At least B Tyler shows game footage. this is just a guy with a laptop.

    Yeah, sure the line-up we have now is a huge improvement but I just felt the need to point out that Rasho was pretty good

    wasn't he just filling in for AVC? I wouldn't complain if he made his first post a Sasquatch post, however.

    edit:I was wrong AVC had just filled in in the past. Is the guy who used to always do this ok? anyone know?

    Here's to hoping Paul George can bother Kobe. He's their whole offense.

    I don't care if PG scores a single point tonight, as long as he does that.

    Tonight is our opportunity to show that last years win was no fluke. Since that game our roster has gotten better with the improvements of our young guys and the additions of West, Hill, and the overhaul of the coaching staff. While the Lakers on the other hand have gotten a year older, traded away their jack of all trades sixth man and lost, quite possibly, the greatest coach in NBA history.

    Getting his Kerri Strug on at a midwestern gymnastics tournament. No one pommels a horse quite like TJ, so he asked me to fill in.

    It was BostonConnection that did it for years. He kind of disappeared at the beginning of 2010-2011 season, so I stepped in. This year, Trader Joe stepped up and has done an excellent job.

    Ready for this game, but I'll probably only get to watch the first half.

    The next five games for the Pacers are brutal. And after the Nyets game the schedule becomes difficult again.

    I could see the Pacers dipping briefly below .500 before rebounding in the second half of the season as the schedule softens considerably.
