Lakers coach Jackson: We won't take Warriors for granted

Full story: LA Daily News

OK, so the Lakers have beaten the Boston Celtics. What do they do for an encore? Well, beating lowly Golden State would be good.

I think this would be a blowout game for the Lakers.

The Celtics loss wasn't actually surprising. They really struggle against Don Nelson's team playing at home. The Warriors won 5 straight and was 12 of 15 against the Celtics at home.

The Lakers, on the other hand, has won 13 of their last 16 games against the Warriors. Although the Warriors went 2-2 in last season's matchup with the Lakers, they are now without Baron Davis and Al Harrington, and Monta Ellis is still in the injured list. The trio scored 62 and 63 total points in their two wins against the Lakers last season. Where would the Warriors get those scoring contributions? From Jamal Crawford?

Well, you may want to see my take on this game at:

HOW CAN THE WARRIORS HAVE SUCH GREAT STATS AND STILL BE 9-22? TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, IT SEEMS THAT WHEN A PLAYER LEAVES THE WARRIORS, THEY BECOME SO MUCH MORE PRODUCTIVE WITH THEIR NEW TEAM. STRANGE.

I like Tyronn Lue but I'd still like to give it a chance for Sun Yue to do a breakout game he deserves.

Fisher did an excellent job guarding Ray Allen of Boston Celtics from that X-mas game. For the first time for many games, Ray Allen did not hurt Lakers in scoring particularly. I called this veteran & aging Fisher vs. veteran and aging Allen. In the past Kobe has no success guarding Ray Allen, always hurting Lakers, making easy three-point shots but with Fisher tenacious defense, Ray Allen was frustrated and benched by Celtic coach. Next time Lakers meet Celtics in Boston, put Fisher against Ray Allen. Phil Jackson are you making note!

Yeah, Marbury would be a great choice for the Lakers to sign... if they wanted to self-implode and eliminate themselves from the hunt for the championship. There's got to be some quality talent out there, either through free agency or trades; the Lakers are a world-class team, anyone in their right mind would want to play for them. They'll be just fine.
