I am sitting here watching the Lakers beat the crap out of the Dallas Mavs, again. The Lakers’ bench is playing like they are men possessed and the whole team’s defense in the fourth quarter has been phenomenal. It looks like they are already stepping up their games in preparation for the playoffs.

I am so proud of these guys right now–Devean George, Rick Fox, Robert Horry, Derek Fisher, and even Jannero Pargo stepped up their games today. Shaq and Kobe were not the top scorers today, as if almost to prove a point.

There’s nothing like beating the Mavs, the team with the best record in the Western Conference, yet again. The Lakers extend their home streak against the Mavs to 25 straight–that’s unheard of. Mark Cuban, take note–your team won’t win a championship this year.


  1. As if I didn’t feel bad enough about missing the game, you have to GO AND RUB IT IN HOW GOOD IT WAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Nugget, I love the way you love your Lakers, but do you honestly believe that L.A. will repeat this year? The Big Aristotle says that the road to the championship runs through L.A., but CWebb and crew have something to say about that. Perhaps a friendly wager is in order!
