The Los Angeles Lakers face off against the Charlotte Bobcats tonight, and Michael Jordan will be hoping for a win from his squad that is shockingly favored (-2). This is probably because the Lakers are not only on the road, but they this game is a back-to-back for them making it even more difficult.
The game tips off at 7:05 PM, and my pick in this one has to go to the Lakers with Kobe Bryant starting to look more like his old self as he works his way back into peak playing condition.
“It’s a learning experience” Bryant said after Tuesday’s loss. “When you have a young team you have to remember that it’s a marathon, not a sprint.”
We will have to see if the Lakers can play a bit smarter tonight or if they will get burned by one of the Eastern Conference’s worst.
Here is the TV info for that one.
TV: Time Warner, SportSouth, DTV: 651, 691, 751, 752
Bryant will be missed when he finally steps away from the game whenever that is, but expect him to get back on track a bit more tonight with a win against the ‘Cats.
