Take it one game at a time and please Gasol show up if it's only Kobe the Celtics are going to celebrate on our home floor
Last thing I wanna see in this world are the leprechauns winning/celebrating a championship in our own floor.
After watching that disgrace of an effort in G5 how can anyone feel good about game 6... Forget all the problems on offense, we pull down some rebounds and get stops we win last game and have two games in which to clinch the title... We need to win the glass. Pau needs to make himself wider and get in better position for defensive boards. How he doesn't realize that at this point I don't know.
Artest should just hurt the Celtics whole starting lineup he isn't doing anything for us might as well make yourself useful and have some flashbacks of Indiana Artest
We're winning this. Nuff said.
Lakers haven't lost 3 straight playoff games since 2006, and I don't expect that to change. Lakers W in a close game.
Low I.Q. Certain players, ahem, Odom and Ron, are just not very intelligent. They WILL make mistakes again, no matter what. We have to win DESPITE them. They will make those screwups again, Lakers as a team just need to minimize that.
It bothers me that we're down in this series, when in my head we are clearly the better team. Sure we have weaknesses, but so do the Celtics. It clearly is going to come down to who wants it more.
The reason we are down is partly the Celtics luck getting critical calls their way down the stretch, partly the fact that our defense hasn't been that good, we've struggled offensively and have deviated from the game plan, and our other players haven't been aggressive enough.
I have a sick sinking feeling in my gut this game won't end well for us. I hope I am wrong though...
Now all I can hope for is that the Lakers defend Staples. I know benches don't travel, I didn't know Gasol, Artest, and LO don't travel either.
We need others to step up, if artest and say odom and another bench player can have a good game we win. BUT ITS A BIG IF. Honestly guys I'm realllllllly frickin worried, I don't know how so many laker fans can be this cocky. I'm scared rite now.
In the Staples we'll get basketball calls, no wrestling calls anymore.
I really question this teams spirit right now. I worry about everyone not named Fish or Kobe. There seems to be some discontent and some frustration for obvious reasons. Players seem snappy with each other. I hope they have not lost their resolve and sense of teamplay. I hope they still believe they can win, because they can.
We have been getting outplayed these last 2 games, game 5 HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE REFS, they have just been playing better then us. I'm worried.
Yes, the concern of the Lakers is spirit, energy, willpower, killer instinct, and a sense of urgency. They are lacking all of those.
Just bench odom. God I am tired with that air head [or am I insulting the air heads by saying this]
Lamar suddenly sucks since he got married I thinkin a divorce if this happens we are nba champs lets all pray for a divorce whoooo
The damn refs better not get involved in this one, but all of us laker fans are not necessarily all upset. If you think of the way home court works in the 2-3-2 format, we still have home court in Sterns odd format and we play much better at home.
One thing for sure is the Lakers can't play from behind, I don't remember the last playoff game in 2010 that the Lakers fell behind and came back to win.
If we win the title Kobe is the greatest, never have I seen someone play with such a garbage team that everyone overrates just to take away from Kobe's accomplishments
If we can't win game 6 of the finals in our own house, then we don't deserve to win this thing.
This is like watching your kids playing football and watching them get bullied around by the bullies and seeing them not defend them selves.
The Celtics shouldn't be able to get away with the constant fouling no calls they get away with in Boston. Sure they play good defense, but lets be real here that has a lot to do with what they get away with.
I'm anticipating artest getting into a fight with someone
If we don't win I'm retiring from the NBA and moving to the WNBA where physical play is allowed to happen.
Seems like just about everybody is against us from the media ESPN/ABC to most nba analysts.
There is no point in me watching because we can't clinch and I risk watching those c***s celebrating on our floor.
This Celtics team is hardened, confident, and hungry. They will give us nothing and nor will the refs who are once again letting them play like animals. We will have to out hustle and outplay them in order to win.
Just play Lakers basketball and if that don't work just score more points than the c's.
The way I seeit is that Celtics have a good chance of winning tonight. Hey, don't get me wrong - I'm a BIG LAKER fan too. Celtics play an extremely outstanding DEFENSE and that is our problem - no one seems to take a basket except Kobe. That is the reason Boston is in the FINALS - Defense wins championship and you can see them play hard on the floor. And the LAkers???
Gasol is known for choking in big situations, and this is BIG. I'm pretty worried.
I lost to the Celtics in a blowout in NBA 2K10
Stern will be at the game tonight, do you think this will have an impact on how the game is called?
I'm nervous too, but so are Boston fans. They don't want this to go to 7 in LA.
Looks like our shameless home crowd is here.. Wait to intimidate the opposition during the player introdcution.. You can hear all of 2 dudes booing at the back
Lakers haven't loss a playoff game at Staples this playoffs where the opponent didn't have a player knock down 8 3-pointers!
We have a lot in our favor. Home court, I'm sure the NBA and David Stern want a game 7 so the refs will be on our side. And I'm sure ABC want a game 7 also. It would get huge ratings.
Who's going to step-up and be our big baby?
Jon Barry just called us the "Fakers."
Still bitter the lakers got rid of him just before the title run
Here's hoping the fans at Staples can get in the heads of the Celtics or refs -- either one would be fine with me.
We need ALLEN OUT OF THE GAME
We can't let Ray Allen get hot.
Get the wheelchair Boston got away with that kind of over back the all night long in the last three games.
I hope Perkins broke his (bleep) ing knee. Stay down
Perkins contracted a KTD from Bynum (Knee Transmitted Disease).
I hope that punk is injured for the game. Evens up the knee issues that Bynum has had all series.
Over or under 5 minutes until Perkins comes running out of the tunnel to get back in the game.
(bleep) Perkins. That idiot deserves this
Porkins is a drama queen just like every other (bleep) on that team.
I don't think Perkins faking hes not flopper like paulina
That's not a good look. Hate Boston, but hope the dude's ok. Nobody needs serious injuries.
He aint fakin
Finallly got a call!
Phil needs to get in the refs ear about Sheed's d on Pau. He's doing some dirty stuff in there.
Celtics are down to 3 big men, now matched with the Lakers. Certainly helps in our favour as really only Sheed can defend a guy like Bynum.
Issue is Kobe not hving legs in the 4th because we have no depth.
If we play with energy and hustle we will win the series
Its sad we need our backs against the wall in order to play like this
Keep attacking show them your not scared of them.
So this is what 100% effort from the whole team looks like. Ive always wondered about that.
This reminds me of game 4 2008. The lakers looked like a totally different team. Then they blew the lead. Hopefully this is different.
Doesn't matter what Boston team show up, if the Lakers play like this they are simply unbeatable.
Refs letting reaches and hacks go on both sides - players need to keep the ball tighter or there will be a lot of jumps and "steals."
it's crazy how easy it is for Boston to get calls.
WOW REFS TAKING OVER!!
I think the Celtics are the worlds ugliest nba team
They are only going to call obvious fouls since we are up by so much.
I hope Perkins is done for the rest of the series. That makes up for him not getting his last tech.
WOW @ THESE TICKY TACK CALLS. REFS TRYING TO GET LAKERS IN THE PENALTY
Celtics hacking everyone on every play.
On that one play... Pierce intentionaly trips pau and rondo shoves Kobe in the back. Punks
Kg and Gasol trying to out flop each other.
Refs letting both teams play, not calling Wheelchair's flopping act, and the Lakers are up big...
We need to win and not let this garbage jungle ball rule the league, send that (bleep) back to the dungeon with the Knicks and Pistons
ALL the Boston players are dirty one way or the other.
Apparently everybody but the refs and ABC seen Rondo push Kobe.
Rondo to the line. This should be comical.
Why don't we foul Rondo hard on all layups?
Kobe has ZERO respect for Rondo's game. I don't blame him either, RONDO is a JOKE.
Kobe disrespecting Rondo a little too much on the last 2 possessions. He actually can score once in a while if you let him.
Artest got Rondo seeing stars. Lol
The bow by Ron Ron... I like it!!!
Too bad no one bumped Rondo back down on the floor as he was getting back up. It'd be worth the tech.
WOW THIS CELTICS TEAM IS SOFT. WHEN THINGS DON'T COME THEIR WAY, THEY FLOP/WHINE/CRY LIKE A BIG LITTLE BABY GIRL.
More Celtic injuries please.
They're dropping like flies. Green, disgusting flies.
No team has dominated a game like this all series.. Makes you think which team is really the better team if it wasn't for a couple of calls that didn't go our way. The Celtics definitely won game 2, 4 and 5 with intensity as well though so you can't take anything away from them.
Man I cant stand Bill Simmons Lol
Sportsguy33: This is disgusting. Celts getting hammered - Lakers now allowed to claw on every possession, Rondo just got smacked in the face on that last drive. Come on. LA was gonna win anyway, call it fair. I hated this third quarter from a reffing standpoint.
Why does Breen keep on saying Perkins is out but not Bynum??
Seriously, Pierce is a human bobblehead.
Lets send someone in to get Wallace a TTTTTT haha
He should've gotten one two tantrums ago.
I'm sure the Celtics media and fans are already preparing their "We would've won in 2010 in Perkins hadn't gone down in game 6" excuses.
So its the 4th quarter and Boston has...51 points. WOW!
Put the midget on the ground not a silly ticky tack foul....
One thing smaller than Nate must be his IQ.
Hey Nate - jump around like a stupid monkey like you usually do when you make a shot. Oh wait, you're team is getting waxed right now.
I really hate Nate Robinson. I wish SHAQ whipped him to the ground to break his legs
Celtics have checked out of this game, but they won't play like this again in game 7.
You don't put off tommrow what you can do today, they'll pay for that attitude
Nice nate is starting to chuck
Bad things happen when Fisher is in the game. Our chances to win game 7 will be dramatically enhanced if he picked up 2 early fouls.
Tony Allen getting away with another foul...
Wow, bad call there. ...what's new?
Tony Allen pulled Kobe like he was playing in the backyard infront of the ref... And then he gets Td up by the very same ref for that?
Shelden Williams makes Mbenga look like an offensive juggernaut
Considering the Celdicks have dodged about 15 Ts already this series due to Perk's and Sheed's "predicaments" that technical foul call is probably up there with some of the worst calls in this series. Shameful.
Why is it when the Celtics are down, they foul more and harder?
Laker defense has been awful in the 2nd half.. They're just missing shots
I hate to ask this,but is there any way we can Tony Allen I know per wiretape he wants to stay in Boston
Even when we lost in Boston, we didn't get creamed like this, even when we played terrible we lost by 5-10 points..this was a total BLOWOUT
2010 CHAMPIONS LA LAKERS !
Starters' game travels, bench players? Not so much. Look for much of the same in Game 7, especially with Perkins out
EVERYONE has their confidence back! It's SKY HIGH! Another guaranteed win on Thursday. Today was ONLY the beginning!
Sure we lost TWICE in BOSTON, but we'll be winning these final two in LA which is ALL that matters!
Expect Game 7 to be much tighter.
Marca reports that Perk injury is looking REAL BAD. Don't like that, missing the 7th yeah but don't want him to lose months of play
Screw Perkins. Usually I hate seeing people get injured but in this case, **** that. I am happy that fool is gone!
I was actually upset that he got injured, he's probably my favorite Celtic player... And I don't want excuses coming from people rooting against LA.
Trust me, Perkins would of not made a difference. Lakers already had a big lead when he blew his knee.
It was a 6 point game when Perk went out
The diffrence is not a player is what refs let them getc away with.
Please! I hate everything about Boston! I hate all their teams! I despise them!
Ray Allen: "We gotta do this for him" Perkins is out for Game 7 and his teammates know it.....
Perkins is going to be miss by them,because they lost more size! Lakers will come out and punish them inside
Sorry but KG, Baby and Sheed aren't defensive stoppers in the middle. Sure the Celtics will come hard in Game 7 but so will the Lakers. Reality will set in as time goes on in that game.
Lakers 4th quarter execution needs a lot of work.. Tight game favors Boston.. Lakers, it's pretty much on Kobe's miracle work..
HC matters the C's were hacking us with no calls for three straight games up there.
Lets not celebrate too much. There will be plenty of enough time for that on Thursday night
This is the lakers playing to their potential and with sense of urgency.Its clear that we're the better team.
I'm so nervous about game 7, I know Boston won't play this bad, theyre gonna come out fired up.
I want Phil to light up a cigar in the middle of Staples while Russell hands Kobe the MVP trophy
