|What's up Doc|
The Los Angeles Lakers are down 2-0 to the Dallas Mavericks. This is the first meeting in over 20 years between the two franchises in the playoffs. Not really important but some people like to hear those facts. The fact of the matter is they loss both games at home and are going to a Dallas arena that is going to be loud and excited for game 3. The Lakers have been in this hole before under Phil Jackson and won against the Spurs in 04' in 6 games and lost to the Suns in 07' in 5 games. The Lakers also were up 3-1 against the Suns in 06' and lost that series in 7 games so, there is hope. The problem is the Mavs are shooting the lights out and playing better than average Defense like they usually do. Also the Lakers are having "trust" issues on Defense as Laker Center Andrew Bynum said after game 2 blow out loss. The issue is the second unit and them not playing through Lamar Odom and Bynum on offense and their guarding nobody on defense. Phil has to find a good mix with his subs and maybe keep more of the first unit on the floor to match up with the Mavs explosive second unit. With out mad man Ron Ron Artest in Game 3 the Lake Show has a tall feat but it can be done. It Phil wants this to be his last stand then he better start standing his tall a$$ up and coach.
