Los Angeles Lakers vs. Phoenix Suns Wednesday Game Preview, TV Schedule and Betting Line

+Read full article
Bryant

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers face off tonight at 9 PM EST against the Phoenix Suns, and we will have to see if head coach Mike D’Antoni’s squad can get some momentum back after losing to Luol Deng and his new squad.

Here is the TV info for that one, and bummed that will not be able to catch it myself.

TV: Time Warner Cable, FS-Arizona, DTV: 686,691,764,765′

The words out of the Lakers locker room do not sound too encouraging to say the least, so will be picking the Suns to cover the spread (-11) in this one.

“This is hard,” said guard Nick Young.”We’re losing, and we’re losing players daily. It’s frustrating, but we’ve still got to get up and play basketball. Nobody wants to get embarrassed. You’ve got to still take pride in that Lakers uniform.”

We will have to see if they can summon that pride, but unfortunately the talent just might not be there for the Lakers to be playing playoff basketball this year. That might be tough for Laker Nation to swallow, but the truth will set you free. The Suns, on the other hand, will have a chance to grab a win against a team that is having some serious injury issues. Actually that is a bit of an understatement; their injury situation is like a poop filled sock. You don’t quite know what is in there, but you know that it stinks.

One more preview coming your way today, and then will hit you with some Rant Sports Prep later on as well.

Watch Suns' Morris Attack His Own Teammate Goodwin

Just when it looked like Markieff Morris was ready to put all of the shenanigans behind him and focus on basketball, he does something stupid again. This time, he got so infuriated with teammate Archie Goodwin that he attacked him inside the Suns' timeout huddle. He not only shoved him, but he attempted to choke Goodwin which is way over the line.

LeBron James Nails Lakers' D'Angelo Russell In Groin With Pass

Not cool, LeBron.LeBron throws a fastball at the wrong spot. #ouch

Posted by Bleacher Report on Wednesday, February 10, 2016

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.

Kobe Bryant Rejects Roy Hibbert's High-5 Attempt

Things didn't go swimmingly for the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night against the Chicago Bulls, as they played horribly and lost by 23 points. Kobe Bryant clearly wasn't pleased. When teammate Roy Hibbert attempted to give Bryant a casual high-five, it didn't go over well as an angered Bryant slapped it away in defiance.
