Pretty clear that they blew their wad coming all the way back and had nothing left in the tank to finish the game. Even Kobe couldn't make a shot at the end, minus the miracle 3. The only thing that surprised me here is that they made a game of it at the end.
And BTW, 4ML. I told you so. You stick to predictions/expectations of your team. And I'll stick to mine. lol
You're probably right...I didn't watch the game, so I don't know what happened - but Lakers have been playing pretty good and Atlanta is pretty bad right now and were missing Teague. I saw the score in the 3rd quarter and was like - all right, they got this now.
I'm going to admit that I'm guilty of lookin' at the box score - but wtf is up with Howard taking 9 shots and Kobe and Artest taking 50+ shots together. A day after Howard goes off in Orlando?!? This makes little sense to me.
...anyway, this may surprise you - but I'm kinda rooting for Lakers to make the playoffs and face the Spurs in the 1st round. I really want to see that AND Kobe is fun to watch. Anyway, I didn't mean to come off as someone who knows the Lakers more than you.
