The Lakers have a 3-2 series lead, and they would make their lives 100 times easier with a victory tonight. Of course, winnning on the road when it's not do or die has not been their fortay, so we shall see what happens. Also, it will be interesting to see what Kobe shows up: Kobe the assasin or Kobe the decoy/facilitator?

Go Purple & Gold!
