Jayne Kamin-Oncea – USA TODAY Sports

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.

Two more previews coming later this morning and then if you are still clicking around be sure to check out our Rant Sports Prep content.

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.
