I don't think they will be able to. LAL are still a force to be reckoned with, but they aren't the best and need to face up to a team which is better than them.

They might be the best again soon, but not at the moment.

If they could beat the Pistons, I think they could beat the Spurs. Espiecally with the new moves they've made. I think there will be an upset tonight. Spurs will lose to LAL.

The only way the Lakers can beat the Spurs is if Number 8 goes nuts (which is possible) and Odom keeps playing the way he has in these last couple of games.

I disagree, if Kobe even has an off night (which would still be thirty points in some cases) they have tremendous defensive powers who have been great these past few games. Kwame, Turiaf, and Mihm will block shots in the post, Lamar Odom will get rebounds galore, and Smush has just been stealing balls like he was Ron Artest. They can keep the score close with their defense and be able to score down the stretch with all their role players (including Jim Jackson who they signed recently). Though if Kobe has less than 25 they're not winning.

51-37 Laker lead at the half. Though it all rests on the third quarter, I don't think they'll blow a 14 point lead.

Only 5 minutes left and the Lakers are leading 88-75. I'm not a Lakers fan but the game is in San Antonio I'm almost impressed.

The Lakers beat the Spurs 100-92 behind a balanced attack. Kobe led the way with 29 while Luke Walton had 10 rebounds and Odom had 13 points 9 assists and 8 rebounds. (I told you guys Odom is a walking triple-double). On a totally unrelated and homer note. Carlos Arroyo had 17 points and 7 assists as the magic blow out the Cavs 102-73.

I say this with upmost modesty- called it.

Last night, while most of you were asleep CAL beat Oregon in double overtime, now less than 24 hours later they play UCLA for the Pac-10 championship. I don't think they'll have enough energy to put up a fight, but I do think they'll be dancing.

Cal is gonna be tired and they won't be able to handle Afflalo and Farmar which is in my opinion the best backourt in the nation.

1st big upset as the 3 seed Iowa goes down to Northwestern State after a miraculuos shot at the end of the game. How everyone's brackets so far?

Beaten up badly.

I'm sure most of you were watching ABC basketball today, Lakers vs. Cavs. And if you did, I hope you agree with me on this, that was the WORST reffering I have ever seen in one game of basketball. Or should I say, the most one sided. Kobe was getting slapped in the face and didn't get a fouled called, just showed a little anger, and got a technical, whereas, he steals the ball, all ball and somehow a foul is called. And those are just two of many incidents. At the end of the game, Kobe called a timeout with the ref looking right at him, and no Timeout called. WORST. REFFING. EVAR. Buss should do what Cuban does and send a tape to the league. This is just an unexcusable job by the refs.

Walton was held by Gooden near the end when they were scrambling for a loose ball that's why Walton couldn't save it. Kobe was fouled on a couple of plays and the refs apparently didn't see it, guess that's why its called Home Court Advantage.

Today is the start of the Sweet Sixteen now it starts to get interesting. Look for an upset as Gonzaga will beat UCLA and I hate saying it but I think Duke will beat LSU I'm not convinced on Big Baby Davis being as good as advertised.

My final three are still alive including my national champion- Boston College. I think UCONN will lose, somewhere along the line before the final four. Somehow someway.

The Lakers beat the Kings yesterday and are now in 7th for the West.

The Lakers pretty much dominated the Kings they were leading since the start of the game. As for the NCAA tournament I still Gonzaga,UConn and Villanova alive and the Zags were leading early against UCLA.

You cannot imagine how much I hate this thread. Just like last year, my school choked AGAIN on the Sweet 16. Because of that, my brackets are fucked now. My basketball season is over now and it does not matter which team wins---as long as the damn LSU Tigers exit as soon as possible.

I think everyone's brackets are petty much done for. But it sucks how such a great shooter like JJ ( even though I can't stand him) just can't seem to win big games. Oh well he'll still be a great 3 point-shooter in the NBA.

On a side note, Gonzaga is smoking UCLA now, another fuck-up for my brackets----"awesome" day!

Since my boys are out already, I am rooting for teams like West Virginia and Washington and hope them to mess things up a bit more. The season is over for me anyway. :(

Gonzaga loses to UCLa in heartbreaking fashion. I wa rooting for Gonzaga but Farmar had a huge steal for UCLA near the end of the game. I guess next time I see Morrison's stache will be in the NBA. Funny, how the nation's top tow scorers couldn't come through for their teams in the clutch.

I normally don't watch the women's game but I was glued to my seat and Maryland won its always good to see Duke go down especially in a title game.

On a side note the Pistons have reached 60 wins as Mcdyess had 24 points and 14 boards off the bench, I'd say that's pretty good.

I hope you guys all voted on the NBA's dance bracket, where the Heat Dancers were crowned best dance team of the NBA.
