    Chris Paul was unstoppable today, the man exploited pick and rolls better than any pg i've seen in years. Lakers won't be able to guard him.

    Great win by the Hornets.  This is a much closer series than I expected.  I still believe the Lakers will win, but the Hornets are a tough matchup for them.

    We'll see what happens in games 5 and 6. We really need to win this in 6. Absolutely don't want to go to 7 games. In a similar position last year against The Thunder. However, we did have younger legs last season. And didn't have such an erratic end to the season. Have to admit I didn't expect this sort of series from The Hornets. But well done to them. Right now, as it stands, I can't see us getting past The Thunder. The Grizzlies are young and athletic as well. Very scary proposition to us as I'd rather play The Spurs than a younger team. All I'm asking from these play-offs and the future is somebody in the East, Anybody to beat Miami each season in the play offs and send them home without a Finals appearance. Wade has his championship. But I don't want to see James win anything.

    We'll do our best to beat Miami, that you can be sure of!

    Happy to see the Hornets make the Lakers work, but I think the LAL will win in the end. Too much size and talent for the LAL, even with a lame Mamba.

    Don't forget the lakers are playing the "nba's team" now.  Don't expect many bailout calls in this one.  I still dont' think the hornets can win another game, but it's great seeing the lakers sweat when we are resting.

    It was a fun game to watch.

    Lakers miscues near the end cost them the game.

    I still think it will be Celtics-Lakers.

    Go Hornets !


    What a game in New Orleans since the original Pete Maravich's Jazz team in the '70s!

    Chris Paul is playing out of his mind right now. The Lakers will still win the series, but Paul is making it more difficult than it should be.

    I'm sure you'll win, but with the way Gasol is playing, it cannot be good that koME left the arena on crutches.  He is one of the toughest players ever, and I'm sure he'll play........but it has to take its' toll someday.....he's not 18 anymore!

    He's not as consistent as he once was. Still an exceptionally good player but his prime years are now behind him. His best years are behind him, if he want's to believe that or not. Still very capable of helping us win this season. But so much needs to go our way.

    You can check on of my post. I picked the Hornets. Be honest did not think it would happen, but it's looking better. Best of 2 out of 3 now.

    Wonder if the Hornets can hold their nerve? That's the big question now. They're certainly in a position to win the series. If they're good enough that is.

    Don't think they get a break at all. Hornets might just give them more than they think. Even without West.

    surprised lakes are down right now. looks like it will be tough series. but i will go out on a limb and say the lakes will pull this out. with spurs losing, lakes will likely face griz in the second round. they are a bad matchup for griz.

    I think we are finding out what a point guard could do if he were able to shoot.

    Kobe has a sprained ankle, Chris Paul and Tevor Ariza do not.

    It could happen.

    i dont think you have to worry about that just yet..the heat still need to develop a reliable bench before they can go deep in the playoffs, much less win it all...

    Kobe definitely didn't look like he had a sprained ankle.   I thought the game would be closer, but it definitely was a very good win by the Lakers.
