- Heal met team captain Kobe Bryant and said, "This guy is a very intimidating guy. He's very convincing when he speaks and you just listen to him." Bryant also talked about Heal, "I have never really talked to this guy, actually haven't heard of him before."


:lol: He looks itimidating.

At least I think :shock: Nice article (Y)

BULLS HELD TO TWO FOURTH QUARTER POINTS

Los Angeles Lakers 120 @ Chicago Bulls 87

Dec 16, Chicago - A year after Kobe Bryant helped the Chicago Bulls pull out a win over the Lakers, Bryant returned to his idol's home team to destroy them. A game for Kobe against the Bulls in Chi-town is always surrounded with different scenarios and hype. This game was no different.

Michael Jordan wasn't in the United Center for tis game however Scottie Pippen and Steve Kerr, both part of TNT's commentary team were on hand in the stadium. The two who obtain harsh criticism of Kobe's Jordan mannerisms were to be put in the bet seats of the to witness Kobe's flawless basketball for one night.

The 6'7" SG was unstoppable as he scored jumper after jumper in the first quarter to finish with 12 points in the first period. He then turned his focus to feeding his teammates and playingsuffocating defence on Bulls guard Bonzi Wells and held him to 1 point and then played edqually impressively against Kirk Hinrich when the PG moved to the 2 in accordance to Wells'lack of success.

The Bulls made a slow steady comeback throughout the middle two quarters but were then stunned and left numb i nthe final 11 minutes of the game. The last time the Bulls would score was at 11:45 left i nthe game and the Lakers would hold the team at 2 fourth quarter points. The Bulls watched on as Kobe Bryant dominated the final quarter with various acrobatic acts and added 15 fourth quarter points to his final scoreline of 35, 8, 6 and 3.

Bryant's assault came on his first play of the final period that saw him race through the middle of the lane and convert a Jordan-like soaring dunk over Eddy Curry. Curry commited his fifth foul which sent him to the Bulls' bench and Bryant calmly sank the free throw. The Bulls were then harrased by the Lakers' uptempo press and turned the ball over twice before even reaching the halfway line. On both plays, Bryant scored three point shots. The quarter went on steadily for the Lakers and very demoralizing for the Bulls as the players on the bench held their arms out in anger at many calls going the opposition's way.

Ben Gordon was called for a charge which looked like a block and the call brought Bull's coach Scott Skiles to his feet and onto the court. The coach was ejected from the game. "That was the most ridiculous call I have seen. Ben was clearly fouled by Carlos Boozer!"

The Bulls' game only got worse as Bryant started to try a bit of MJ-imimitating. With 2:30 left, he flew in from the baseline for a reverse jam over Tyson Chandler (ie. Jordan over Patrick Ewing). At 1:22, Bryant backed down on Luol Deng and let a fadeaway fly from his hands. The ball swished through the net as Bryant completed a three point play ala the same play Jordan performed on a younger Kobe. Bryant then had a very tricky no look pass to Ron Artest who calmly hit a three pointer from the left wing with 29 seconds left (ie. Jordan to Pippen) and at the buzzer sailed in from the top right side of the halfcourt to hit a difficult floater in the lane. The ball hit its target as the buzzer sounded giving Bulls' fans a take on Kobe's understanding of Michael Jordan's famous shot which sunk the Cavs in the late 80's.

"Kobe Bryant played the best basketball that Chicago has seen ever since Michael Jordan played in here," Steve Kerr said, "It wasn't a career high for him but the dominance in the stadium his hero played and schooled him really sets this individual performance apart from other players." Scottie Pippen agrred, "Kobe gained my respect tonight."

Carlos Boozer was helpful inside as he provided 28 and 11. Ron Artest and Fredrik Ratchuk added 18 apiece while Kwame Brown delivered 13, 7, 4 and 4 steals. Head coach Magic Johnson was impressed by his team's fourth quarter dominance, "Sure, the Bulls didn't play too well but if we could limit teams below 15 in every quarter of every game, we'd win the ring hands down!"

Eddy Curry was limmited to 33 foul plagued minutes and finished on 8 and 5. Big man Tyson Chandler was even more unimpressive and finished on 3 and 6. The Bulls were led by Deng's 25, 9rebounds, Hinrich's 23, 6 assists and Ben Gordon's 21, 6 assists.

"We played a terrible game!" Curry said, "It was one of those nights you know."

NOTES:

Holding an opposition team to 2 fourth quater points is a new Lakers' team record for the GM Sit led era of LA Lakers basketball... The Lakers have won three games in a row... Rumour has it that the Lakers are in contact with a 6'4", 300 lbs Forward from New Zealand. Pero Cameron was invited to try out for the Detroit Pistons and GM Sit is interested in a big body like Pero to clog up the lane... Current Record: 5-3 (2-0, 3-3)

Looks like Chicago's acquisition of Bonzi Wells really paid off in this one. (N) Nice work Sit.

LAKERS FINISH FAST AND FURIOUS

Boston Celtics 86 @ Los Angeles Lakers 109

Dec 17, Los Angeles - Magic Johnson coached against the team his Lakers won 5 championships and regularly battled in the 1980's. The Boston Celtics were hot in the first half and then it was the Lakers who finished the Celts off with true showtime basketball.

Paul Pierce and Ricky Davis were hot as they reached 24 points, 15 points respectively in the first half but cooled down considerably in the second half as the Celtics' players couldn't get an open look on any shot. "It was frustrating, the Lakers just suddenly played the best man on man defence any team has played against us this year," Pierce said.

P-Dub finished on 31 points and Ricky Davis had 15, 14 and 6 but shot 5-19 from the field. "I just went cold in the second half," Davis explained. The SG missed all of his shot attempts in the whole second half as the Lakers rushed to make a huge comeback. The team didn't receive any other valuable contributon as the team suffered a late shooting slump.

Despite mediocre performances from Boozer and Artest, Kwame Brown was able to post 19 points and 12 boards in the paint however it was kobe Bryant as the Laker's lone hero once agin. The reigning MVP scored 34 points only on jumpers and added a game high 9 assists. "It was a challenge made by Ray Allen. That I stop driving and shoot jumpers more," Bryant said, "Also if I want to prolong my career I think I will leave the energy in my legs for when I need them!"

The Lakers dropped behind by 13 points early and then 21 by the middle of the third quarter. Paul Pierce was unstoppable as he drove relentlessly to the hoop and Ricky Davis was providing the Lakers as a tough second option. Then the answer came in the wanning minutes of the third period. Bryant, Brown and Ratchuk led a game turning, scoring revival as the Lakers literally burned Boston with a 42-1 scoring run which last from 4:57 in the third quarter until 9:02 in the final period.

"That scoring run was huge," Magic Johnson said, "All of the open jumpshots Byrant made which opened up the lane for Kwame and then the open jumpers from Fred(rik Ratchuk) reminded me of Kareem (Abdul-Jabbar), James (Worthy) and me."

The crowd cheered the home team on as the fans jumped up and down in their seats in a fast paced second half. Just as the Lakers dropped behind by 18, fans started to file out slowly but as word spread of their comeback, fans started to return, spilling back into the arena.

"The atmosphere here tonight was magic!" GM Will Sit said excitedly, "I can't wait for the playoffs!"

NOTES:

The Lakers have won 4 games in a row... The Lakers lost to Boston last season after Gary Payton a former Laker scored a game high ammount of points in that game. Payton retired in the offseason... SG Kobe Bryant is averaging 35 ppg, 7 rpg, 7 apg and 4 spg... The Lakers are 3-0 at home... Current Record: 6-3 (3-0, 3-3)

LAKERS SHUT DOWN SEATTLE'S SHOOTERS

Los Angeles Lakers 101 @ Seattle Supersonics 86

Dec 19, Seattle - The LA Lakers finally look like championship contenders. Not because of Kobe Bryant but because of the fact that they won without their star player. Kobe Bryant left the game early due to a stomach virus and migraine. The 6'7" SG had already notched up 13 points alongside 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals in only 29 minutes.

While Bryant was in action it was noteable he was playing very weakly and struggled to get up and down the court without slowing down whenever he could. Luckily for the Lakers, the other players stepped up. Carlos Boozer delivered 20 and 17 while Ron Artest also contributed 19, 6, 8, 3 steals and 2 blocks. Kwame Brown helped man the lane and added 17 and 7 while Kareem Rush sparked a 20-1 run in the second quarter.

"Kobe was playing weak, we've experienced this before especially last playoffs and perservered," Rush whom finished with 13 points said, "We did the same tonight. No one ever wants to see the leader down."

The Lakers played their reserves for the final 6 minutes of the game and allowed the Sonics to go on an unanswered 13-0 run but that didn't stop Head Coach Johnson from being dissatisfied with the team, "At the end we already won and did slow down a lot but the guys on are young. I don't expect too much from them."

The Lake Show won their fifth straight game at the expense of the home side who had only just arrived back from a road game against the Spurs. The Sonics had their own four game winning streak snapped in the 112-107 loss to Tim Duncan's team and looked, at many times, disorientated with the fast pace of the Laker offence.

Ray Allen led the team on a losing cause with 23 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals. Allen tried his hardest to keep the Sonics in the game as he scored all four of his three point buckets in the second quarter but everytime he scored a long range bomb, the Lakers would score two more buckets. "It was annoying, Kobe led his team well," Allen admitted, "We just aren't up there with the Lakers right now."

Robert Swift played a team high 45 minutes but didn't contribute much as he went on to finish the game on 13 points and 9 rebounds. Vladamir Radmanovic added 11 points, 8 rebounds and Rashard Lewis scored 9 points and grabbed 7 boards. Sonics rookie Vin Gill was a surprise for the Lakers, coming off Seattle's bench to finish the game with 9, 5 and 3.

Los Angeles improved to one game over .500 for their away games record. GM Will Sit was very optimistic after the match, "The team is looking in great shape and the young guys are learning the ropes to this team. I know that we will keep it up!"

The highlight of the game was Ron Artest's block on Robert Swift. The 7'0" center was going for a dunk but didn't see Artest fly i nfrom behind to swat his shot out of bounds. "That was good," Swift said afterwards, "I don't know how he got up so high."

Seattle's Nick Collison answered from across the locker room, "BEcause you can't jump!"

NOTES

SG Kobe Bryant has not been cleared by team officials and will likely miss out in all of this week's training and puts him out of the team for their next game against the Memphis Grizzlies in two weeks... After the game, Ray Allen travelled to Los Angeles to shoot a new television commercial which advertises the NBA's Read to Achieve program. The new Ad features Yao Ming, Shaquille O'neal, Ray Allen, Emeka Okafor, Carmelo Anthony, Nene and a puzzling addition; Ron Artest... Current Record: 7-3 (3-0, 4-3)...

Perhaps if the NBA regains popularity here in Australia it will open doors for you. In the meantime, keep pursuing your dreams of being a sportswriter; you can always start covering the NBL. ;)

New Years Eve Heartbreaker

Los Angeles Lakers 98 @ Memphis Grizzlies 103

Jan 1, Memphis - The Memphis Grizzlies snapped the Lakers' five game winning streak as LA lost another game o nthe road. Despite late game heroics by Kareem Rush, the Lakers just didn't have enough time to wipe out a disappointing shooting display.

Kareem Rush scored 10 points in the final minute of the game to try and erase a 10 point deflict however the Grizzlies held onto the win with key plays down the stretch. The first shot came off a screen on the top left hand side of the court where Rush came off a Kwame Brown screen to hit an open three pointer. Juan Dixon then stole the ball off the inbounds pass and passed straight to Rush who hit a jumper on the left elbow. Jason WIlliams who scored 26 for Memphis hit two free throws and Rush recieved the ball to score a layup. The Lakers unpredictable run came to a stop after Pau Gasol powered his way to the hoop for another 2 of his 20 points off a tip in. Ron Artest missed two shots before the Lakers fumbled another play. Rush made a consolation three point dagger in the heart of the Memphis defence as he spotted up for another trey at the top of the key.

"Kareem played as if he were posessed tonight. The league mught have another Reggie (Miller) after tonight," Magic Johnson said. Rush scored high fives from the home team and his own as he left the game with the crowd in awe of what had happened. "Everything happend so fast, I was shocked how hot the kid was," veteran Brian Grant exclaimed.

"We were very lucky to have escaped with the win," Mike Miller considered aloud, "If we hadn't scored twice, it would have gone to overtime and if Rush was hot... we could have lost!"

Rush ended the game on 32 points and hit 5 triple over the course of the match. Ron Artest finished with 26 and 10 and Carlos Boozer also recorded 24, 20 and 5. Kwame Brown harrased Stromile Swift in the paint as he grabbed 15 rebounds and swatted 3 shots while Juan Dixon made up for missing 7 shots by dishing out 13 dimes as he made some unbelivable plays.

The Girzzlies were led by Jason Williams and Pau Gasol's double double. However their most valuable player must have been rookie Walt Lue who sank shots at many appropraite times whenever the lakers looked like they had a'groove' going. "Walt impressed us tonight," Gasol stated, "He kept our team's composure going throughout the night.

The Lakers struggled to score all night especially at the start of the match. The Grizzlies forged a 16-2 lead and didn't allow the lakers to score until there was 5:45 left on the clock. LA continued to shoot the rock horribly and ended the first quarter with a 12-0 run however, the team still shot at a field goal percentage of 28%. Things didn't get better for Lakers as rookie Fredrick Ratchuk missed his 11th shot of the game early in the second quarter and quickly picked up his third personal foul. Carlos Boozer and Kwame Brown struggled on defence as Pau Gasol proved too strong for the duo to contain and Kareem Rush just didn't shoot well in the second period. The Lakers did well to keep up with the opposition though and finished the half with a Ron Artest three pointer.

Ron Artest and Carlos Boozer combined to score 20 of the team's 21 points in the third quarter as Juan Dixon led the fast break on nearly every offensive play. An altercation between the two benches occurred at the end of the third period after James Posey accused Shane Heal of swearing at him while he was taking a jumper in front of the Lakers' bench. Heal then walked up to the Memphis bench and took a punch at the swingman before other players joined in.

The two players will appear in front of a panel to hear their punishments tomorrow in New York. "I swear, the only word I screamed out was shoot!" Heal defended himself. Posey differed, "He said something bad to me. He's a new guy and I don't care, he should know what being a sport is!"

The fourth quarter began with an 8-0 spurt from the visiting side before Memphis regained control on defence. Los Angeles scrambled to control the tempo of the offence and ball game. It was too late though as the Grizzlies were leading 94-82 with 3:05 lef tto play and the Lakers started on their scoring romp too late.

NOTES

Kareem Rush scored 17 points in the final period... SG Kobe Bryant sat out the game due to injury... PG Shane Heal and SF James Posey will be summoned for a judicial hearing and are expected to be slapped with fines and/or suspention... PG Juan Dixon surprised the Memphis' crowd with a dunk during the secodn quarter... Current Record: 7-4 (3-0, 4-4)...

December Recap

1 Jan, Los Angeles

The Lakers had a successful December as they went 5-1 with SG Kobe Bryant leading the charge. A five game winning streak with the team winning by an average margin of 17 ppg helped put rumours to rest that the team wasn't getting along. Kobe Bryant commented after an impressive win against the Miami Heat, "What do you mean we don't play with cohesion? That's just bull!"

A tough loss to the memphis Grizzlies ended the month and year however it was a cloe game even without captain Bryant. "We would have won if Kobe was here," Kareem Rush, who scored 17 points in the fourth quarter and 10 in the last mintue said.

The month also included the signing of Australian point guard Shane Heal. The 6'0" guard has yet to play a game but sources are saying that he is enjoying his stint with the team. A spokesperson announced, "Shane (Heal) was brought in to score threes when needed. He's waiting to be allowed the time to do it."

The team is now at 7-4 and look ready to storm towards another postseason campaign. Kobe will rejoin the Lakers for their next game against the New York Knicks led by MVP favourite Stephon Marbury.

NBA Players of the Month

The Chicago Bulls had a 'so-so' month as they went 4-4, Kansas' Kirk Hinrich played the best basketball in his career over that stretch. Hinrich was impressive in a 118-117 win over the Los Angeles Clippers as he scored 32 points including 5 treys. In a 110-103 win over the Seattle Supersonics, he finished with a triple double of 21, 11 and 13 and then had another triple double in his next game against the Indiana Pacers. He finished with 15, 10 and 14 in the 101-74 win. The Bulls captain broke his own career high in scoring and assists by recording 41 points and 15 assists in a 101-94 win over the New Orleans Hornets.

Minnesota was led on a 5 game winning streak by Kevin Garnett. They finished with 2 losses in a row to finish December but the Wolves still look like the best team in the NBA. The 'Kid' was the hero for his team in a narrow 91-90 win over the Chicago Bulls as his steal and then subsequent dunk won the game with 3.1 left on the clock. He finished with a huge double double of 41 points and 22 rebounds in a 115-71 win over the New York Knicks, recorded 16 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assists, 5 steals, 9 blocks against the Phoenix Suns in a 109-78 win. He single handily decimated the Charlotte Bobcats with 15 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists and 5 blocks in a 94-62 win. In the Wolves' 99-85 win over the Denver Nuggets.

Kirk Hinrich averaged 21 ppg, 4 rpg, 8 apg and 1.4 spg and Kevin Garnett averaged 24 ppg, 12 rpg, 5 apg, 3 bpg and 1.6 spg over the period of December.

GotMilk? Rookies of the Month

Sweden's first NBA representative ever made a splash in the Pacers' disappointing 2-6 run during December as Moses Sydor made the most of his limited minutes. The forward averaged 4.3 ppg, 4.0 rpg and 1.1 apg to be awarded the Eastern Conference Rookie of the month award. Sydor was able to finish with his first career double double with 12 and 10 in a 100-79 win over the Los Angeles Clippers. In the Pacers' 94-79 win over the Philadelphia 76ers, he scored a career high 15 points while in a 112-80 loss to the Sacramento Kings, Sydor was able to contribute a career high 5 assists.

Denver got the rookie they were looking for as Remus McCarty, a Maryland product was given the starting 2 guard spot and so far he has impressed many with his scoring ability. The rookie SG averaged 11.9 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 3.4 apg and 1.57 spg for the course of the team's 3-4 December. The rookie was unselfish in a 112-110 OT victory over the Houston Rockets as he hesistated on his own potential game winning shot to feed a charging Carmelo Anthony for the buzzer beating dunk. He scored a career and team high 22 points against the Seattle Supersonics whom they beat 78-88 and had 16 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals against the Boston Celtics in a 102-86 win.

I tried writing a monthly recap, but as you can see, it turned out like crap

Dont say that bout urself... all u need is confidence! But heres soemthing u might wanna do... start reading more and increase ur vocab! My teacher was getting C's in english and started to read a book a week and after two months he was getting B+'s so u might wanna try that!

I'm surprised you didn't pull out the Hammer in this one considering how badly Freddie was struggling

Dixon was the playmaker in the second half so the Hammer didnt get to play...

Wow, Marbury's in good company.

Funny how Starbury is a MVP candidate.. something different for a change!

Lakers' Frontcourt Dominates Knicks

New York Knicks 100 @ Los Angeles Lakers 110

Jan 3, Los Angeles - The Lakers stay four games over .500 and undefeated at home in the STAPLES Center after a gutsy performance against the New York Knicks. Kobe Bryant fouled out with 6:01 remaining in the final period and the Lakers leading by a slim margin however back to back three pointers from super sub Juan Dixon helped LA remain in control of the match.

It was all thanks to the Lakers frontcourt pairing of Carlos Boozer and Kwame Brown who combined for 50 points, 30 rebounds, 6 blocks and 21-30 from the field. "We were definitely pusehed by the big men tonight. Booze had a great 20 in the first half and Kwame pulled down 12 boards in the second half. They really propelled us to the win tonight!" Lakers assistant Michael Cooper stated excitedly after the game.

Kobe Bryant played horribly after coming back from an injury as he struggled on 8-21 shooting, commited 4 turnovers and fouling out. He finished on 18 points and 5 rebounds. "I couldn't get into rhythm tonight. My left ankle is really gurting right now," Bryant told a sideline reporter as he left for the locker room. X-rays on his ankle revealed nothing and Bryant has been advised to have a MRI on it. Lakers' trainer Karl Malone announced, "Kobe's ankle doesn't look like its holding up, we will investigate into it further."

Stephon Marbury did his best to keep his team in the game with 25, 5 and 6 and was backed up by Tim Thomas' 26 points and Kurt Thomas' 11 and 15. "LA just had more fuel in the tank at the end of the game. They were more motivated to win it in the end," Marbury said, "If we keep on going like this, there is no way we will win games."

Knicks President Isiah Thomas was present at the game, travelling with his team to meet up with former rival and good friend Magic Johnson; currently the Lakers' head coach. "I'm happy that he (Magic) is more involved with basketball again. Magic is a great man and tonight you could see his spirit in the team's (Lakers') play!"

The Knicks and the Lakers kept the game close until the final quarter as LA began to move away and increase their lead. Kwame Brown spearheaded the assault by scoring 8 straight points in the first 4 minutes of the final period. The Knicks suddenly tried to get back at the Lakers with Marbury's drives becomming unstoppable. "Something got into him and everytime we thought he'd dish it out, he would score," Carlos Boozer said scratching his head.

After the match, Kwame Brown was very vocal about LA's championship chances, "We will win the ring this year. This is LA's year! And for the next 6 years, we will be winning a lot!"

NOTES

When Kobe was walking back to the locker room a fan leapt over the police barrier and attempted to drench the player in beer; the man was doning a Shaquille o'neal jersey... The end of the game saw the Lakers have a big lineup of Brown (6'11), Boozer (6'9"), Jansens (7'0"), Randall (7'1") and Artest (6'7")... Spurs C Tim Duncan was injured in an earlier game against the Houston Rockets when C Yao Ming stepped on his foot. Duncan was diagnosed with a broken toe and will be out for 2 weeks... PG Shane Heal has been suspended for two games... Current Record: 8-4 (4-0, 4-4)...

BOXSCORE

Star Guard/Captain Out for Two Months

Image
Above: We will be seeing more of this
in the next 2-3 months


Jan 5, Los Angeles - SG Kobe Bryant, the Lakers' team captain and star player has received negative news after various MRI scans on his left ankle. Bryant reportedly caused more damage to his already troublesome left ankle during the game against the New York Knicks.

Team Doctors are still trying to interpret the severity of the injury and have an idea of what it is. "We believe that it's an akle fracture but we are not sure," Doctor Eddie Chan said, "Mr Bryant could be out for a maximum of three months."

An ankle fracture would mean that Bryant would have to stay immobile for 6 weeks and wear a cast for 2 months. "This is not good for our season," Head Coach Magic Johnson explained, "He's (Kobe) our leader and top scorer. Without him, we may struggle."

News on how Bryant was injured was released this morning with team officials making a statement. "Bryant sprained his left ankle during morning shootaround. We believe he further aggravated it during the Kincks verse Lakers game during the third quarter where he jumped into the stands for the ball and in the process had his foot caught on the top of a chair. Kobe did tell the doctors the incident and that he had trouble moving his ankle afterwards but kept on playing..."

"... Kobe also told us that his ankle got worse several hours later to the extent of excruciating pain."

With the Lakers at 8-4 in the middle of January, it is the worst time to lose their focal point but the team is ready to step up. Kwame Brown, one of Kobe's better friends on the squad visited Bryant in his beachside home. "Kobe is still very happy although his leg is in a huge cast. The man will get better. He's a soldier!"

Kobe's fans lined up at the STAPLES Center today to express their sympathy and left flowers, cards and presents for the 6'7" star who is averaging 32 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 6.7 apg and 3.9 spg in 11 games in which he has started in all of them.

I dunno... I think he's having one of those rookie barrier situations.. where he hits the wall and goes sprawlling backward and doesn't perfom well!

Since Kobe's out, Freddie should step up... and I predict he will be Western Conference Rookie of the month!

Rookie Ratchuk Leads Lakers

Portland Trailblazers 103 @ Los Angeles Lakers 116

Image
ABOVE: Fredrick Ratchuk (2) shoots a difficult leaning jumper over two defenders

Jan 13, Los Angeles - Who said the Lakers would struggle without Kobe Bryant? The Lakers looked as strong as ever as they improved their record to the best in the Western Conference behind a strong double double from rookie point guard Fredrick Ratchuk who poured in 18 points and dished out a career high 14 dimes.

"Fred stepped up big time tonight!" Head coach Magic Johnson exclaimed after the game. Assistant coach Michael Cooper added, "The rookie really has alot of upside. He showed us that he is a leader tonight."

The little warrior was aided in the teams win with double doubles coming from both the Lakers' big men; Carlos Boozer and Kwame Brown while small forward Ron Artest top scored with 26. "It was a team effort," Boozer stated, "However, Fred really got our engine going by running the show by himself without Kobe there to help."

The game started off slowly with both teams missing many open opportunities but as time progressed, so did the pace. Soon the STAPLES Centre crowd was treated to an exciting display of athleticism from both teams with Boozer leading the Lakers' charge scoring 12 first quarter points and Zach Randolph adding 8 for his squad.

The Lakers then pushed their advantage out towards the 20 point mark, leading 48-32 with 5:37 left in the second quarter. However, a collapse at the end of the quarter allowed the Blazers to relinquish and minimise the sizeable margin. "That was horrible defence we played in that second quarter," Kareem Rush said.

The Lakers then let the Trailblazers level the score at the beggining of the third period behind a strong effort from Darius Miles whom scored 12 of his 20 points in the third quarter. "I was in my zone," Miles explained, "All my shots just kept falling."

LA self diagnosed the problem and found their solution in their two rookies; 7'1" Jared Randall and 7'0" Pavel Janssens. The duo slowed down the Blazers' scoring by forming a 'wall' that the opposition couldn't score over. Sebastian Telfair commented on the pairing of the two young men, "Those two guys will be a force in 5 years, give them time to improve and earn playing time." The Lakers immediately returned to pole position behind a 10-0 run which saw Ratchuk sink a fadeaway, then two more treys. Kareem Rush's dunk capped the run as LA edged closer to their win.

The fourth quarter featured many highlights including dunks from Carlos Boozer, Kwame Brown, Darius Miles and Ron Artest. Rush sank a three point dagger which opened a 18 point lead for the Lakers, while Sebastian Telfair converted a four point play to inch the Blazers closer to the dominant home side. Derek Anderson's coast to coast with 33.2 secodns also brang the crowd to its feet.

Blazers' forward Zach Randolph lead his team with 26 and 20 which included 10 offensive rebounds. Shareef Abdur-Rahim who resigned with the team last offseason was mediocre with 18 and 14 while Nick Van Exel scored 14 points and 7 assists.

NOTES

All 10 Starters scored in double fiigures... Kobe Bryant was prsent inside the STAPLES Centre but didn't join his team's bench... Blazers' Sophomore Sebastian Telfair recieved a standing ovation after completing a four point play... Current Record: 9-4 (5-0, 4-4)...

Detroit Pistons: Mo Town's Pride

The Detroit Pistons are having a standout year, their record stands at 16-1. How have they done it? Anthony Jackson writes...

At press time, the Pistons are about to enter into another contest but it looks like the normal story will come out of it. The same plot we have seen all season long: the Pistons will have a blowout win and everyone in the NBA will be bracing themselves for the rejuvenation of last season's NBA Finalists and the NBA Champs of two seasons prior.

The Pistons' success was not predicted after a flurry of changes around the League as the Pistons stayed quiet during the offseason. Sure, another good season was always forseen to be on the books but at the halfway mark of their season, the Pistons have only lost one game. And it was a 2 point loss to the San Antonio Spurs.

As Tim Duncan stated about the Pistons, "Detroit is playing the best basketball ever. Everyone thought they were past their prime, I see them entering it right now. Our win tonight was a hard fought one and its scarey to admit that Detroit weren't at the top of their ball game."

Minnesota's Kevin Garnett seemed to agree with Duncan as he analysed the Pistons' squad, "The Wallace's, Rip, Billups and Tayshaun are the best starting five in the NBA. They play the most dominant defence and have a balanced attack, no other five can top them!"

The Pistons were showing signs of struggling this season since the Playoffs when Rip Hamilton and Rasheed Wallace had an arguement about who the number one offensive option should have been. The team's captaincy was also an issue as Ben Wallace felt cheated that he didn't get the nod for the role of captain and it was given, instead to veteran Antonio McDyess.

Amid all of the turmoil, the Pistons had a great run to the NBA Finals but were overwhelmed by the Sacramento Kings who taught the Pistons what they had taught the Lakers of 04.

"It was a huge lesson for us," Chauncey Billups looks back, "We learnt that team work is always the key in all team sports and so we tried to work out our differences."

The offseason saw the Pistons make some vital decisions. Rumours were circulating that the team was ready to part with undersized big man Ben Wallace in exchange for big man Yao Ming from Houston. A deal was seemingly on the books until coach Larry Brown stepped in and prevented it from going ahead.

"I wasn't going to give up on Ben," Coach Brown said, "He's our heart and soul."

And with Brown's intervention, Wallace decided to try to reward his coach's 'heart' by talking to his teammates. The Pistons were called into a meeting to settle aside their differences and the changes were made quiclkly as everyone settled into their new roles by trianing camp.

Rasheed Wallace and Rip Hamilton made sure the coaches drew up equal ammounts of offensive sets that would help them to score, hence allowing the two players to be sharing the spot of 'number one option on offence.' Ben Wallace and McDyess agreed on sharing the beloved 'C' on their jerseys while Chauncey Billups had his friend Lindsay Hunter signed to the team.

Everything was back in full swing but the team just wasn't a favourite of any NBA analysts to make it back to the Finals. It seems that they were wrong as the Pistons won 15 straight games to start the season.

"This is a magical season, after all of the hurdles I can't believe we have come out on top!" Ben Wallace told ESPN.

However, there could be one small reason why the Pistons are playing so well and it could be attributed to the drafting of former LSU star Tanner Fairchild. The 6'1 SG was a steal for the Pistons with the 21st overall draft pick of the 2005 Draft. His vision on-court and endurance gives the Pistons another scoring option off the bench which really helps to give Rip Hamilton a rest in long stretches.

"Tanner has been a surprise for us. But you can't deny any props from Darko (Milicic), Carlos (Del Fino), Adika (Sharawi) or Smush (Parker). Young guys who are only getting more and more minutes than before," PG Lindsay Hunter said, "I've seen this team grow up and this year, everyone has become more mature."

Maybe the Pistons are in their 'Prime Time' right now and may fade once Playoffs come around. But it will be scary if they only get better as time goes by. Only time will tell if the Pistons are indeed 'The Beasts of the East.'

Player Stats:

C/F Ben Wallace: 12.2 ppg 12.1 rpg 2.24 spg 3.00 bpg
F Rasheed Wallace: 20.9 ppg 7.1 rpg 1.24 spg 1.94 bpg
SF Tayshaun Prince: 14.7 ppg 6.8 rpg 3.4 apg
SG Rip Hamilton: 21.7 ppg 3.6 rpg 6.1 apg 1.47 spg
PG Chauncey Billups: 17.6 ppg 7.1 apg 1.59 spg

PF Antonio McDyess: 2.4 ppg 3.6 rpg
G Tanner Fairchild (R): 4.4 ppg 1.9 rpg 1.9 apg
PG Lindsay Hunter: 2.9 ppg 1.3 rpg 1.2 apg
PF Darko Milicic: 1.1 ppg

Looks like Ratchuck really stepped up after Kobe being out. I'm kinda shocked that Kobe will be out that long, but with Artest and Boozer, you should still win a good amount of games.

- Yeah, its great to have Booze and Artest on the team. I just discovered how good Booze can be on offence... he dominates! But I dont really see Booze stepping up as much as Kwame, hes getting a mix of everything these days for me!
