PBT Extra: Previewing Heat vs. Lakers Christmas Day matchup

17 Comments

Another game that looked better on paper before the season — LeBron James comes to take on Kobe Bryant on Christmas Day. Except Kobe’s fractured knee has fractured some of this game’s appeal.

In the latest PBT Extra Kay Adams asks what the Lakers need to do to win this game — pound the Heat inside with a whole lot of Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill. Problem is, the Lakers like to run under Mike D’Antoni and while they play better that way they don’t play better than the Heat that way.
