The Los Angeles Lakers have had little trouble with the New Orleans Hornets this season, sweeping the season series, 4-1. However, all that can quickly change in the postseason.

The New Orleans Hornets finished the first quarter up by two points. They got contributions from a number of players, while the Lakers have been riding Kobe Bryant.

Perhaps New Orleans can make the series a bit more interesting than originally thought. Follow along as I keep you updated throughout the game.
