4 pm PST
Tonight there will be a game of basketball played between the Washington Wizards and Los Angeles Lakers. Both teams will take to the hardwood floor and try to get the ball through the hoop as many times and as efficient as possible.
If this is the end of your work week and you intend on watching the game then enjoy it for what it is; a simple game of basketball. If you still have work this weekend, I commend you, and hopefully you enjoy watching this before you get back at it tomorrow. Sometimes it's the little things that get lost in translation while we dive into the advanced stats an everything in between. We love the sport of basketball, that's why we're here, and that's why we'll watch the Lakers at 9-14 on the season play the Wizards who are 3-16 on a Friday evening.
Kobe Bryant is considered probable as he battles back spasms that began last night against the New York Knicks. Pau Gasol continues his resting knees tour, and we know the story on the Steves. The Wizards have injuries galore themselves: John Wall, Trevor Ariza, A.J. Price, and Trevor Booker are all out for tonight's game. Washington is the worst team in the league right now with a paltry .158 winning percentage, but tonight let's just sit back and watch a game of hoops. Life is far too fragile, and this is just a game of basketball.
Salutations, enjoy your weekend. The Lakers will finish this four game road trip Sunday against Philadelphia. Early tip off tonight, 4 pm PST, so keep that in mind.
