Are The Lakers In Jeopardy
The Los Angeles Lakers are down two games to the Dallas Mavericks and from what we saw last night it seems like they are going to have to get on the same page very soon. As a matter of fact they only have today. Tomorrow they play in Dallas and if the don’t win game three there’s going to be heads rolling. Already, Ron Artest is becoming “mad” Artest and might not be available tomorrow night based on a flagrant foul at the end of the game. He was ejected and that is not good for the Lakers.
These 2011 NBA playoffs are really intriguing. Teams that did well all season are now in trouble. Are the Lakers in trouble? Are they in jeopardy? At the press conference after the game, Kobe said, “everybody needs to just stop tripping.” Are people tripping? What did Lamar Odom means by saying there are “trust” issues? Kobe tried to explain it- did you buy it? Are the Lakers in jeopardy.
History is not on the side of the Lakers who lost two on their home court, but as we have seen in baseball and hockey, home court is not necessarily an advantage. We saw the Knicks not making any use of home court. They came closer to winning two games on the road than they did at home. Are the Lakers in Jeopardy?
