Mike D'Antoni

Update:

http://www.insidesocal.com/lakers/2012/ ... t-houston/

He’s trying to conserve as much energy as he can after having recent knee replacement surgery. With the Lakers (4-5) hosting the Houston Rockets (4-5) tonight at Staples Center, D’Antoni’s debut could hinge on that variable.

“The plan is, but I’m still 50-50,” D’Antoni said after morning shootaround here at the Lakers’ practice facility. “I may be jumping the gun a little bit. I threw that day out of the air and people ran with it. So we’ll see.”

So Houston is only playing four players? That means we have an advantage to begin!

Can't have a let down, gotta punish the Rockets early. I doubt if Mike patrols the sideline tonight.

Oh OK, I've seen a lot of guys getting whacked lately doing that. Truthfully speaking I wish RGM will just do away with the smilies altogether. It's kinda childish really for a basketball forum. Grown ass men shouldn't be posting with just smilies and laughing gifs. Just my opinion, so I guess your banned from the GB from here on out ?

D'Antoni not coaching tonight, Argh this is frustrating, Hopefully we can pull through with the same run and gun style like the last game.

Lets go for the win!

If Morris can play well against Lin, it will get him a world of confidence. I just hope Harden doesn't get like 16 FTAs today.

Sadly, yes.
I just posted that smiley in response to the poster saying he is not a ballboy (referring to his rank). I mean no offense. Clicking that smiley is easier than typing "lol". But yea, it is what it is.

Did u get banned or suspended for a few days/week? The general rules state that it's usually excessive smilies, but the mods have been more strict this season. I've gotten suspended before, but it was usually only for 24 hrs or max a few days.

I think the key to the game is containing the Rockets shooters. Rockets have basically been going through Harden, who barrels through the paint to either get the score or foul. He'll get his, but the Lakers can score just as much. Lin hasn't been shooting well from the outside, so if they keep him out of the paint and make it tough on their shooters, Lakers should win this game.

I expect Pau Gasol to have a good game tonight, since he will have undersized players guarding him.

I hope Artest comes in focused to play defense tonight. I want him to lock Harden down.
