Well, the game is not close, 11 pts in the first projects to a 40p blowout...

I know people will start saying... No D antony's sistem wont make the cut in the playoff... but man, what a relief to watch this team play this way...

Another unpopular opinion(and i know i'm a know Pau homer) but everything Gasol makes in the game... makes sense, is like a freaking clinic of how to help your team in every little detail, its a shame he coast too much and has that poor body language...

I can live with 40pts qtrs every single day of my life... (i'm used to 10-15 qtrs in europe :( )

Rocket fans were praising Asik left and right for his defense. I don't see anything impressive.

And because you've seen him for an overwhelming sample size of one quarter, you're an expert.

Howard is unstoppable. He can get shaq numbers in this team (28/14)
.
Just feed him more. Kobe has learned that he'll only uget another ring if Howard plays like Howard. There is no stopping him

I hate Kobe, but that was just a great all around quarter

Lakers getting some hometown cooking.

- Kobe Bryant obviously wasn't shooting and was just doing what he did because he knew the intentional foul was coming, they stopped calling those last year, not sure why he got it tonight.

- Pau Gasol obviously pushes Patrick Patterson in the back, yet they allow it and he scores from it.

Lakers have had a soft as warm butter schedule so far, can't wait 'till they start playing some better teams, who have they played? San Antonio, is that it?

Again the scrub named Howard and being assisted on dunks by the scrubs Kobe and Pau... Hou fans must end the Asik mith right now... he can't defend anymore!

He's getting abused by Howard (6-6), and even Kobe and Metta have got to the hole uncontested. That isn't reminiscent of good defensive players even if its only one quarter.

They played some good teams like the Clippers and Spurs but they haven't beaten a team that wasn't a projected lottery team.

So a whole career of elite defense is derailed by Howard scoring on him for one quarter. :lol:

Meeks got Done dirty!
I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant; it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.
