I don't have too much to add to Truth's game blog from last night.  The small things were the difference, and against the Lakers, you don't really have much margin for error.  I will say that the Lakers definitely were toying with us a little bit, playing odd lineups down the stretch.  Andrew Bynum dominated us all game, then sat while we inched closer.  In typical Phil Jackson fashion, he makes a not-so-subtle reference to his second unit's play and plays it off like he's blaming himself.  Um, no, he's clearly saying he can't trust a lot of his players.

Anyway, Chicago and rookie phenom Derrick Rose is next on the docket.  Besides Rose, they're a really damn confusing team, but somehow they're close to .500.  There's a good preview from Blogabull here.  I hope we have something left in the tank for tonight. 

Game's at 8:30 and NBATV is carrying it, so it might be blacked out on League Pass.  Let's hope not.

UPDATE: And in DC, the game is on the "CW"...which for RCN subscribers, is channel 15.
