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.
