LIVE - Lakers vs. Rockets: Game 7 - 1st Quarter

New, comments

I don't have to tell you guys what's up here. Game 7, do or die. The Lakers need to...

  • respect the Rockets
  • play with energy and intensity
  • play defense
  • exploit the size advantage
  • get Pau and Andrew going early
  • get into the paint
  • stick Fisher on the bench

The team needs to come out with a 40-point blowout mentality. Winning should not be enough, and "just winning" should be completely unsatisfactory. They need to play for a big lead early, and and even bigger lead late.

Let's get to this. Give us your thoughts as tipoff draws near.
