The Los Angels Lakers go on the road tonight against the Oklahoma City Thunder, and Kobe Bryant will continue to work his way back to full form.

He will not be there for another month or possibly two, but the Black Mamba will be ready to roll come playoff time as he always has been in the past. The Thunder meanwhile will most likely steamroll the Staples Center crew.

“It was great” Russell Westbrook said of the latest win. “I got my work done early, so it was good.”

The Thunder are favored big (-11.5) in this one that tips off at 8 PM EST and here is the TV info.

TV: Time Warner, FS-Oklahoma, ESPN, DTV: 206, 679, 691

The Thunder are coming off a big win, and fully expecting them to win at home but it is quite a large spread that the Lakers might just cover while losing. That is just my opinion on this one, but if you do not trust it then just stay away from this one and look at my other previews today. Really like the Thunder a lo, but to win by twelve in a pro basketball game is quite difficult and think Bryant will end up keeping it close.

One more preview coming your way today, and then be sure to check into Rant Sports Prep later tonight.

Not cool, LeBron.LeBron throws a fastball at the wrong spot. #ouch

Posted by Bleacher Report on Wednesday, February 10, 2016

On Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Lakers made a fourth-quarter comeback against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but ultimately lost 120-111. Unfortunately, along the way, rookie point guard D'Angelo Russell was struck in the groin by an errant pass at the hands of LeBron James, and ended up on the floor in quite a bit of agony as any man would. Thankfully, after leaving the game for a few minutes, Russell was able to return.

Ryan Anderson Throws Down Savage Dunk On Kobe Bryant

Although Kobe would get the last laugh with the win, his second great performance and the Lakers notched back-to-back wins for just the second time this season, that doesn't stop this Ryan Anderson dunk from being any less disrespectful. The Mamba is in a retirement year, man, let him go out with his dignity still in tact.
