Los Angeles Lakers vs. Los Angeles Clippers Friday Game Preview, TV Schedule and Betting Line

Steve Nash

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers do not have to travel far tonight, but they will still technically be on “the road” against Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers. Chris Paul is still out with injury, so the thing to keep an eye on in this one is the point guard play. If the Clippers can scratch together some solid play at that position over the next month, then they can maintain critical playoff seeding position that could give them home-court advantage in the playoffs. The great teams are the ones who take care of business in the playoffs AND the regular season. Tim Duncan comes to mind when I think of that.

Here is the TV info for this one that tips off at 10:35 PM EST:

TV: Time Warner, FS-Prime Ticket, ESPN, DTV: 206. 691, 693

The Lakers looked pathetic in their latest loss, and their coach made no apology about it after the game.

“We seem to run out of energy,” Los Angeles coach Mike D’Antoni said. “I don’t know if they are getting tired or it’s just the other team turns on the burners.”

That is always a good sign when your team has no seeming control over their fate as far as winning or losing the game. Yeah, it is going to be a long year for Laker Nation, and my advice might be to root for the Kings? Not sure what to say here. At least you might be able to catch some Clippers playoff games! Oh, on second thought, that probably does not help.

Would go with the Lakers to lose the game, but to cover the spread. Thanks as always for reading; one more preview coming at you today, and then Prep Sports. Boom.

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.
