You'd almost think the Lakers have to win out to get to the playoffs... And they've got a tough road for their final three games (all at home): Spurs, Warriors, Rockets.

Yes lots of show fans in PO, because allot of people here are from Cali like myself, I would love to see LA and OKC in the first round that would be epic.

No way, the match-up is all wrong. The best chance we'd have would be against San Antonio (especially with their health concerns).

It is always like that there?

There are laker fans everywhere, but the "lets go lakers" chant surprised me.

There was talk about the spurs giving away games to avoid the lakers, but I think that OKC would like to avoid the lakers too.

OKC has pretty much handled the rockets which would be the matchup if they got the 2nd seed.

There is always the Lakers contingent but it seemed especially loud to me. The "Lets Go Lakers" chants were drowning out the "Lets Go Blazers" chants. We were about six rows behind the Lakers bench so our section was very much filled with purple and gold.

One of the funnier things to me happened near the end of the game. The Blazers leave noisemakers on the seats of all fans behind each basket so they can be obnoxiously clanged together when the visiting team shoots free throws. That's pretty standard practice in the NBA. The amusing thing was when the Lakers fans were using them while the Blazers were shooting free throws...for whatever reason this made me laugh pretty good.

I find that hard to believe, considering how they've manhandled the Lakers the past couple of seasons with their speed.

OKC isn't afraid of.the lakers by any means, but given the choice I'm sure they'd rather face someone else in the first round. The Lakers are a tough 8th seed anyway you look at it

Lakers have 34 free throw attempts and it's not even the end of the 3rd yet. Can you say rigged?


Oh by the way, they're losing LOL

The best should want to play the best, go out and give it a 100%, no failure there.

Lakers survive Stephen Curry's 47 points and beat the Warriors, 118-116... Whew.

Wow probable torn achilles. Right after he hit a pair of threes too.

You can only hope for the best, but have to wonder how much he was compensating for those other injuries while he was out there. I hate to 2nd guess, but don't see why he at least didn't get taken out for a few minutes.

There was talk earlier in this thread about the spurs throwing games to avoid the lakers. The lakers play the spurs in a must win and said back then that even as a laker fan, I'd rather them play a spur team that was really trying to win.

As a fan, you definitely want to see to the top teams play against each other. And with this possible injury, you're not a real fan if you'd rather play against a lakers team without Kobe.

The lakers pretty much have no draft picks. If they go to the lottery, that pick would go to phoenix I believe.

Here you go Kobe haters. All you folks think he is a detriment to the team, ball hog, blah, blah, blah.

You got your wish. Let's see how the Lakers do without him.

My guess they won't win another game and are out.

Kobe was playing hard, now this, I feel sorry for the guy, he usually comes back from injuries quickly, but if this is a torn achilles that's a tuff one to recover from, and will he be the same?

It did not look like he was cutting extra hard, he was doing work like Kobe usually does, not sure if his body was tierd and he did not pay attention to it, or maybe he was on some type of pain reliever due to his other injuries and could not tell that area was weak, unfortunate situation.

Lakers done with Kobe out.

Curry has been ballin' hard especially against top (good) teams.
