The Los Angeles Lakers will be facing off against our Utah Jazz for the 3rd time this season, and the 3rd time in only 22 games. Wow. How much more can learn from these experiences? Well, hopefully a lot. The Lakers aren't the same team that used to give us fits for years. These Lakers give us fits because we fail to play them at our best. We almost had them in Game 2 of this seasons' series -- but lost nevertheless. We should have Earl Watson, and possibly also Devin Harris back for this game.
The Lakers played last night and they started Derek Fisher, Kobe Bryant, Metta World Peace, Pau Gasol, and All-Star Andrew Bynum. They kind of got jobbed on a number of calls last night; so, yeah. Expect some level of business to happen tonight. If we're healthy we'll roll with Devin Harris, Raja Bell, Gordon Hayward, Paul Millsap, and Al Jefferson.
Sorry again for the lack of an awesome game thread -- those are coming back but remixed with your suggestions next week.
Nothing unifies people better than a common foe. There is no foe greater than the Lakers.
