The news about Kobe Bryant looms over every one of these previews, but if had to actually pick a team to win the game would go with the Lakers.

“I think we ran out of gas,” head coach Mike D’Antoni said after the latest loss. “You saw the energy. … We gave ourselves a chance for a while, but we had to come up with some big shots.

The line for this one is not set yet, because Pau Gasol is questionable. I’m on the road after the articles today so if there are any updates on the line will try to update them once have arrived safely at the destination. Happy Holidays to everyone heading home, and thanks so much reading this year. Should be even better content and distribution in 2014 so stay tuned and we in our own part, will do our best to serve the people.
