Regardless of what happened in Game 4, the simple fact remains that LA is up 3-1 and tonight they're at home. As I've said before, I consider this to be a huge game. You're probably saying "Why?"
Well, I don't think San Antonio is going to lose at home again, so if they win tonight, I'm 100% sure this series goes to 7. In addition to that, if the Spurs win tonight, and wind up forcing a Game 7, they'll know they can win in LA, and that's not good.
Although I think LA wins tonight, I don't think it's going to be easy. These Spurs are like the living dead; just when you think they're six-feet under, they rise up again once more
and then flop back to the ground for a cheap foul
So if Phil Jackson is smart, and I know he is, he's telling his guys to pretend this is Game 7. Because in some ways, it almost is. If they don't win tonight, they'll be having the same conversation again real soon.
Anyhow, most people are on the Lakers train with me. Let's see what happens.
