OK. We’re just a few minutes from tip-off here in Game 4. Everyone is still kind of waking up, as they usually are for 12:30 Sunday afternoon games. I saw a lot of the guys for both teams out on the court early, shooting around and trying to get it going.
Luke Walton spent a lot of time shooting before the game. He didn’t seem to be bothered at all by the dislocated pinky he suffered at practice the other day.
Sasha Vujacic looked particularly sharp. Some guys just have a way of snapping the net on every shot with crisp rotation. When Sasha hits a shot, it’s like it rips through the net. Still, because of his defense, I’m not sure how much Sasha will be on the court today.
No surprises in the starting lineups. Jordan Farmar is starting again, even though Shammond Williams and Smush were key to the Lakers second-half defensive effort. It’ll be interesting to see how the playing time breaks down between those three today.
Vladamir Radmanovic is again inactive.
