Tonight, the Lakers will play in a game that will greatly determine where the finish in the standings at the end of the season. They take on the Sacramento Kings, who are just one game ahead of them in the win column. Both teams will be without key players. As we all know, Kobe Bryant is out for the season. Jordan Farmar will be unavailable, Steve Nash is doubtful and Pau Gasol is "incapacitated" in his hotel room. The Kings will be without Isaiah Thomas, who is still dealing with a thigh contusion.
