Lakers Win Game 2. Now On to Nawlens!
All the haters-and perhaps even some Lakers Nation faithful-will use the following hours and minutes leading up totomorrow night's game three matchup against the New Orleans Hornets to pan the Lakers' sloppy game 2 performance. They'll say that Pau Gasol still played lousy, that the bench, with the exception of newly-crowned NBA Sixth Man of the year Lamar Odom, was non-existent, and that Kobe Bryant, who took on the lion's share of defending almost unstoppable Hornets captain Chris Paul, did a poor job, allowing Paul to hit not one, but TWO quarter-ending three-pointers unguarded and then fouling Paul in the act of shooting TWICE on three point attempts. These same peeps will decry the Lakers' persistent lack of urgency and predict an apocolyptic Lakers game three collapse in the Hornets' hive.

Remember one thing-a win is a win.

Like Raiders' owner Al Davis has been deified for coining: "Just win, baby," that's all the Lakers have to do. Win, baby. Last night's game wasn't pretty. But the Lakers' team energy and defense led the Hornets to double-figures in turnovers, compared to only three in game one, tying an NBA Playoffs record for fewest turnovers in a game by one team. The Lakers also didn't allow the role players around CP3-Carl Landry, Aaron Grey, etc.-from getting off; though both the aformentioned handcuffed Gasol for a second straight game. Like I said in my previous blog after the Lakers' game 1 loss, they'll be just fine. Let CP3 get his. No one else has the talent nor the killer instinct to take the game over and take the Lakers out. We'll see what the next two games in New Orleans brings. But I venture right now to say just one thing . . .

Bring on OKC, baby.
