They did look very lackluster, confused and lethargic. Gasol has been a a total funk. He is just not asserting himself offensively.

The Lakers are about to feel like the 04' Sox.

well they had to show they could win and they did a good job of rallying at the end

It took longer than I expected, but at the very end of the game the Lakers tightened up and the Mavs surged past them.
I still think the Mavs played poorly, they shot way to many 3's, 29 of them. They hit them well in the first and fourth, ended up 41%.

What makes me laugh the most about this Laker debacle is how almost all of the so-called NBA experts picked them to take the West. Easily even. All of the pundits on ESPN, SI.com, NBATV etc. all look like complete idiots now. The Lakers will now almost certainly go out in the second round having been swept. What a joke. It shows you just how much the media can bandwagon and just how little they know about picking winners.
