    yeah, i've seen him do pretty much that exact dunk before. what set this one apart was knight laying flat on his back in the aftermath. just brutal.

    Yeah, that was a rather niiiiiiiiiice dunk, but excuse me if I don't get all sorts of excited over it. This* also happened at Staples yesterday:






    They are movin' on up to the 8th seed, and hopefully stay there or rise further. As thrilling as the past two games were, it was a nice change of pace to see the Lakers heading into the 4th quarter with lead & maintaining it. Dwight & Kobe are playing better together (Dwight physically will not be 100% this season, but he seems to be in a better place mentally), and for all of D'Antoni's ills, his decision to basically only play Meeks-Jamison-Blake off the bench has done wonders. 3 games on the road this week: Orlando**, Atlanta, Indiana... I foresee a 2-1 trip.



    *Also happening was a convergence of 2 things I can't stand about the NBA: the Noche Latina uni's (shameless pandering in my opinion... wow, so a jersey reads 'Los Bulls' or 'Los Lakers', that means they care soooooooo much about Hispanics!) & the Lakers white Sunday alternates that have plagued the franchise for almost a decade now.



    **I wonder if the fans in Orlando will care enough to give Dwight the treatment throughout the entire game as was the case with this player's return to his original franchise:

    The offensive player is bigger and had forward momentum (as opposed to the smaller defender, who just jumped straight up). It's not a big deal.

    Why do people act as if it is?

    I was at that game, Tunick. Took a bus from NYC, got stuck in snow in Buffalo, and still made in time to boo until my voice was gone.

    The moment I knew it was gonna be like nothing else I'd ever experienced was when, during the national anthem-- DURING it, when everyone is usually quiet-- shouts of "**** you LeBron!" still rained down from all over the Q.

    Just got back from the 76ers/Nets game. Good win. Better to actually have witnessed defense. For those who keep stats: Bynum's hair was in cornrows.

    I've yet to be able to go to Staples for a game this season, and in all likely hood will have to wait until the 2013-2014 season to do so.

    :(

    I'm 4-0 this season, and with the exception of Orlando... that record is against good/great teams. Since we will not be in the playoffs, might as well get solid games in.

    That booing was the loudest I'd ever heard the Q, which includes having been at one of the Boston/Cleveland playoff games the season prior. It was so incredible, I just wish we could have hung in there a bit longer during that game.

    Howard certainly got booed when first introduced, and throughout the game, but the level of vitriol/passion was nowhere near Cleveland levels... it also wasn't good (for the Orlando perspective) that there was a decent amount of Laker fans in attendance. 25/39**... Howard's numbers at the free throw line. 39 attempts! Many of those coming late in the 4th quarter, when the game was out of reach for Orlando, and got me to nearly throw the remote at the television. It's a near miracle he hit 25 of them, but thank goodness he did. Kobe was a little reckless with the ball (4-14 from the field), MWP showed sign of offensive competence (which means he won't do so again for another 3 weeks), and the shortened bench continued to play well, but this game was all about Dwight.




    *One of the little things I love about the Laker coverage on TWC SportsNet is their use of the team's logos (as opposed to the generic 'LAL' used on many other networks) on the onscreen scoring bug.


    **Dwight may have tied his own/the NBA record with the 39 free throw attempts, but that marks a new Laker record (Shaq had it previously with 31 FTA's in a game).

    it was an effective strategy in the first half when he was 9-19 and it was taking the lakers out of any semblance of an offensive rhythm. the fact that he was able to go 16-20 in the second half is a pretty huge anomaly and i can't really blame an overmatched orlando team for trying something that they thought gave them a chance to win.

    not saying it was a stupid strategy or anything, just that the numbers themselves are stupid.

    We're watching the Grizz/Clippers game right now and I can tell it's going to be one of those nights were we're going to have to beat both the Clippers and the refs.
