I haven't complained about the officiating all playoff (or year, for that matter), but tonight was pretty bad, IMHO. In that last play, Bobby Jackson pulled Kobe's shirt out of his shorts. I know the officials hate calling anything at the end of games, but that was the second time in that last minute that I saw Kobe's shirt being pulled out.

Also seemed odd that the Kings had so few fouls when Kobe and Shaq each had 4.

Anyway, the Kings haven't really looked like "underdogs" in this series. The way I see it, it could go either way. Lakers definitely don't look as confident as in years past. But they aren't as deep this year either...

Hey, where are all the girls on this board? I checked out some other thread and there were a bunch of virtual men in underwear.

OK... I'm the only guy who picked the Kings.

They did it tonight and did it the smart way... ATTACK SHAQ!!

They are faster than the Lakers and LA can't handle it.

Its not over yet so I won't start saying I told ya so.... not yet anyways

Exclamation Kings take Game 5 at Arco

Oh my goodness! Mike Bibby! What a clutch player he is!

If we can just get one more win. Just one more, please.

Lakers just one game away from elimination.

Spike, are you pumped? Great game last night, but I wasn't able to stay up for the fourth quarter! Close game with Bibby's game-winner, so I heard. The Lakers are lucky to be alive, if not for that lucky Horry shot.

It was not a lucky shot though.

That fact he got the ball WAS lucky... but he is clutch and just killed it..

I wanna see a Kings vs Net final...

Yeah, that's what I meant - I agree with your post. Despite that, the Lakers are lucky to still be alive - period. If Horry didn't get that shot attempt, the Lakers would be home already. Big game Friday night!

Jeez, this is very different from what most people thought. The Lakers will win though.
Midori, there are some girls, but they don't post virtual women models
That was Marc's link

Talking Go Lakers!

Just devoting this page to all those Lakers fans out there. Anyone have any predictions on tonight's game with Sacramento? Anyone have any Lakers trivia to share?

Well, the Lakers won, as I thought they would. They are too good to just fold like that, I'm hoping for a Game 7 win for Sac. O'Neal had his best performance of the playoffs, scoring 41 and grabbing 17 boards. Kobe added 31 and 11.

Who else wanted to go through the tv screen and punch Kobe Bryant in the head last night, after that blatent cheap shot to Bibby, and then Kobe getting foul shots on top of it! Last night's refereing was dispicable. They have been so inconsistent this series its unbelievable.

And just so you dont think Im biased, I was angry too when Shaq got all those ticky-tack fouls called on him in game 5.

I do agree the refs are too sporadic with their calls. Calls should be uniform and less judgement. I mean, one quarter, you can get hacked or get run over and not get a call and you might pickup a ticky-tack foul the next.

How about Webber not letting go of Kobe and trying to pick a fight?

Eh, Kobe isn't completely innocent there, Brian. Kobe first gave Webber a little nudge while they were grappling.
