What a frustrating loss!!!!!!! The game itself took on the classic demensions as the LAKERS rallied valiantly in the closing moments of regulation, but then the overtime period. It's obvious that KOBE was trying to take the team on His back, a back that was badly strained in the 1st qtr, the OT period ended horribly, and the Jazz are now tied in the best of seven series. I still believe the LAKERS are the superior team between the two, and I think some home cooking will work wonders for the LAKERS, having said that, I still feel strongly that the LAKERS left a game on the table back in Salt Lake.

Kobe Bryant should try Yoga or Meditation Technique to get rid of his injuries specially the late latest injury that he had right now. Hopefully he will fill better. Try this mantra " what you concieved and believe you will achieved". Continue making your teammate better by believing, trusting in them, inspire them to play better.

Walton and Lamar are not better free-throw shooters than that. In anything close to 'tight' situations they always go 1 for 2 from the line. But of course, so did "Big Game James" Worthy during the Showtime Lakers era. The pressure is just higher in the play-offs.

Whats with the headlines " lakers momentum gone" " in trouble". Utah is a good team, and had the best home record in the West. They won at home like they were suppose too. Now its a three game series with two of those games in L.A. Thats why that number one seed was so important. First time the sports writers have had something to say, so they're trying to create some drama, instead of looking at the facts. No double digit wins for Utah at home, and Utah is dismal on the road. Lakers pushed them to the brink in both games after having turnover and free throw issues. Keep it real.

I watched the entire two games in Utah and yes the role players have not stepped up to the challenge as they have done at home in the staples center. I want to see the role players get back into playing showtime ball come wednesday and friday back in Utah. I'm sure the team
know that they have not come this far with clinching the number one spot to now fall short against Utah, Kobe is going to show up when he steps out wednesday so the role players better be ready to assist the MVP of the league so that they can move into the next round conference finals on there way to the finals against a eastern conference team. Let's go Lakers!!!!! We all will be watching.....

If Fisher gets in foul trouble again, let's bring Sasha off the bench instead of Farmar. Two games in a row, he seemed overwhelmed by Deron Williams. I say bring Farmar in at his normal end of 1st quarter substitution and let him build some confidence against Price.
Pau needs to stop arguing EVERY call and just play basketball. Lakers are a better team, but the Jazz are believing and we all saw what happened last year when a team believes (Golden State vs. Dallas)
