The LA Lakers (11-12) visit the Atlanta Hawks (12-12) tonight at Philips Arena. Tip off is set for 4:30 pm PST.

USA TODAY Sports


After only their second Sunday off this season, the Lakers look to stay in the win column and get back to .500. The Hawks, while totally re-tooling in the offseason, have still managed to play mediocre basketball in the East. The sit at 12-12 and are currently the 3rd (THIRD) place team in the Eastern Conference. They would be tied for 10th in the West. The starting lineup is expected to be the same with Kobe holding the point guard position down. Let's hope we can keep Kyle Korver in check this time, as he torched the Lakers for 22 points on 6-6 from behind the line the last time these two teams met.


Your drinking triggers for tonight include:



  • The Lakers trying to get back to .500.

  • Chris Kaman upset about playing time.

  • The horrible Eastern Conference.

  • Kobe Bryant, the point guard.

  • Pau Gasol not having thumbs.


Enjoy. Oh, and check these out: our rules for participating in game threads. But besides that, have fun and enjoy the game.



Now, have at it.


LET'S GO LAKERS!
