The Cleveland Cavaliers are probably happier to be in a warmer climate today, but if they lose tonight then that joy could subside quite quickly. This one tips at 10:30 PM EST due to the West Coast, and if you were looking for the TV info then look no further.

Would go with the Cavs in this one to cover the spread, but will be keeping an eye on Mike D’Antoni and if he is happy with the offense of the team. We all know he is not terribly interested in the defensive effort, so it might just be better to ignore that if you want to remain optimistic about the Los Angeles Lakers’ chances.
Kobe Bryant’s latest injury was tough to watch, but it will be interesting to see if he remains a factor at the end of the year. In any case, there seem to be big changes coming in LaLa land , and Pau Gasol might be the first big name to move. Lord knows this news is not new; he acually got traded in a three-way deal for Chris Paul that ended up getting nixed by David Stern. That was a truly bizarre week of basketball, and we shan’t see its like again in these parts. The Lakers will be hard pressed to make the playoffs is the brutal truth for any Lakers’ fans out there, and it might just be better to pay attention to other things than basketball if you are a die-hard.
That is all for previews today, but stop by Rant Sports Prep if you are a basketball junkie.
