Lakers vs Kings - Part 2
Friday, December 12, 2008 Los Angeles Lakers (18-3) vs Sacramento Kings (6-16)
The Kings beating the Lakers this past Monday was like watching the De La Hoya vs Pacquioa fight, a complete devastation.
Who what of thought that the Kings being 5-16 at the time with having lost 8 straight games AT HOME would beat the Lakers in Sacramento? What a travesty to watch the upset unveil itself before my watery eyes, I was of course chopping onions at the time. Even the Kings were surprised to have won that game as their website showed the games hi-lites on their home page with an eye catching headline reading, "Did you watch the upset happen last night?". Good for them and maybe now fans can start ringing those cowbells louder with pride unlike before with the hushed and gentle ringing sound from those fans who were brave enough to stand out and show Kings spirit with having lost 8 straight.
Francisco Garcia was indeed the factor Monday night along side Salmons. Garcia might have to start again with Martin most likely not playing due to the soreness to his left ankle.
Tonight will be redemption for a game the Lakers should've won. A wise man once told me, "Son listen up, failure isn't failure if a lesson from it's learned", well those words stood by me for many years and I still can't find the meaning behind that saying...anyhow, the Lakers must find the lesson(s) learned from their performance last Monday night in order to avoid another upset in the making.
