Last game against, Houston.

Pau...11 points, 3 of 9 shooting
Bynum...5 fouls...11 points
Kobe...30+ shots...

Last game against, New Orleans.

Pau...10 points 3 of 8 shooting...5 fouls
Bynum...4 fouls...7 points
Kobe...22 shots, 6 of 7 3pters...scored 39

The previous match up against Orlando.

Pau...11 points...4 fouls, 4 of 9 shooting
Bynum...5 fouls, 3 points
Kobe...41 points, shooting 14-31

The Last matchup between PHX and LA, Shaq didnt play.

Their previous game was Nov 20th...

Pau...4 points...2 of 8 shooting
Bynum...10 points...4 fouls
Kobe...23 shots for 24 points...

Does that sound familiar to what I was saying in my other post

More proof that you don't watch games - had you watched that Orlando game you mentioned you would have seen that Staples Center was rocking!
You mean all the actors/actresses in attendence were actually cheering?! I dont believe it.

What are you going to do for act two? Tell us that the Lakers have the highest scoring offense in the NBA and have had the best record in the league because of help from the refs or some sort of conspiracy?

Your opinions are clearly informed by blind hatred rather than facts (as you would be hard pressed to find any serious basketball analyst who would co-sign your characterization of the Lakers.)
They are overrated, they beat up on the lousy teams in the NBA and dont match up against teams who are stronger and more physical than them. Pau and Bynum are as thin as paper! It's January, I'm not going to sit here an argue with the most thick headed person on the Mane. Being the highest scoring team in the NBA doesnt mean anything, just ask Dallas and Phoenix. But I'll tell you this much, I'll be back here the minute the Lakers get ousted in the playoffs again. You just better wish its not a 39 point blow out like their last appearance.
