Harden's a great player but he has some horrendous moments in important games.

Steve Blake is for reals man...if I were the Spurs, I'd be worried about the Lakers' 3-point shooting too.

Wow, Unbelievable shot by Parsons!

Line-drive three at the buzzer to force OT.

So I guess the refs are just going to refuse to call a foul against the Lakers.  Figures.

Can't believe it...Houston can't even go to the line much.

Now the Lakers have a great chance of beating the Spurs and Nuggets without Kobe...

Lakers won't beat SA. I could see them winning two games though.

And the playoffs begin.

This is bad for SAS. No Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker not at 100%. Tim Duncan just returned from injury...I can see the Lakers taking this series in 7.

I would've been more interested in a Lakers-Clippers second-round though.

Wow, the Nuggets finished with 38 wins and 3 losses on the home floor.

That is an incredible achievement for a team like Denver.

Nash comes back for LA.   No Manu ...might mean a upset ... remember LA   "ALWAYS" has the NBA on its side .

This might go down ALOT diff than most people think.

Ginobili played the other night against Minnesota. Only played short minutes and didn't do much but it looks like he is back for the playoffs.

I don't think the Lakers match up particularly well with the Spurs.  MWP is their best forward defender, but he's essentially wasted because the Spurs don't have iso scorers at those positions.  My guess is the Lakers let Gasol deal with Duncan.  Howard should take Splitter who requires less attention, giving him some freedom to protect LA's slow-footed guards from penetration by Parker and Ginobili.

On the other end, Duncan and Splitter are solid defensive bigs who can handle LA's talented paint presence.  MWP may be able to bully Leonard in the post, but he won't have much luck creating on the perimeter against him.  With Kobe's absence and Meeks' uninspiring play, the Lakers will probably go with with two PG's in Nash and Blake during crunch-time. 

If Ginobili can't help the Spurs much and Parker continues his post-injury struggles, LA has a chance.  But if Parker returns to form, there's not much the Lakers can do about it.  Five years later, they still can't check a quick point guard.
