Want some analysis?

Kurt from the terrificly analytical and entertaining Forum Blue and Gold lays it all out on tonight's matchup. Kelly Dwyer (the soul-patched, Web-saavy, hip version of Jack McCallum) pegs Les Rois as an early playoff exit, and blames Rick Adelman for the molasses-slow start. King Ron-Ron says he will stop Kobe. Sacramento's own Buddha, Ailene Voisin, says there's no way in hell this is 'just another game.' Steve Kerr has vaulted Sactown up his ranking list, as has Marc Stein.

What about me? Well, I have to admit. For the first time all season, I'm too paralyzed with excitement about our team to coherently lay down knowledge. When a matchup like this comes around, there's only thing I know...

Ladies and gentlemen, it is on.

To the freaking lineups!

L.A.
PG - Smush Parker
SG - The Black Mamba
SF - Lamar Odom
PF - Brian Cook
C  - Kwame Brown

SACTOWN
PG - Mike Bibby
SG - Kevin Martin/Bonzi Wells
SF - Ron Artest
PF - Kenny Thomas
C  - Brad Miller

The line: -7.

Fun bet o' the night: Kobe points:
45 or More Pts: 5/1
41 - 44 Pts: 5/1
37 - 40 Pts: 7/2
33 - 36 Pts: 7/2
29 - 32 Pts: 4/1
25 - 28 Pts: 7/2
24 or Less Pts: 4/1

Sideshow most likely to be entertaining: All eyes on Sactown tonight. How will everyone respond?

Best matchup: Duh.

Start the chants, Sactown. BEAT L.A.! BEAT L.A.!

Let's go Kings!!!
