Last time these teams face each other Lakers were without Pau and Nash, this time they will be without Pau and Howard.
Not a must win for the Lakers. This aint the NFL. I heard Stu Lantz the other day on the telecast saying "the season is on the line here" on a game. Which was ridiculous to me

I do think Kobe has to score more than 30 pts to win
Need to contain Westbrook (dont know how but they will have to)
Perk is useless in this game
Thunder lost to the Wiz the other night so we sill how their demeanor will be
With 4 players missing from the Lakers, can they pull out the upset?

I dont really dig Espn coverage of the NBA, imo just horrible

I cringe at the thought of seeing more attempted Steve Nash picknrolls with Bobby "Butterfingers" Sacre.
On one hand it's pure comedy.  On the other hand it's pure tragedy.

Heard a stat here on local LA radio that Lakers need to go 31-17 from here on out to make the playoffs. Doesn't look too promising.

As of late, the gameplan for the Lakers usually is.... through the 1st quarter they typically have Nash try to facilitate to everyone except Kobe.
By the 2nd quarter, they gradually start making plays for Kobe.
And by the 3rd quarter he becomes more of an offensive weapon.
By the 3rd quarter he's the go-to guy.

I really hope Jamison has a breakout game tonight.
Lakers need him to play well, to even have a chance against the Thunder.
Earl Clark hopefully can bring his A game again tonight.

Once a lifetime chance for Clark, if he can put up another big game, he will stay in rotation even when all bigs are back.

WMP is forcing it and he's shooting low FG%, that's not a good sign.

They just announced during the game that Jordan Hill is out for the remainder of the season.  He is going to have surgery.  This should mean more minutes for Clark if he can continue to play well.

Clark looked to get screened and nobody rotated over.  He broke through and contested the shot.  The look on his face after Durant nailed it was priceless.  He was practically pleading his case to Kobe after the shot.
