Tonight, the LA Lakers will take on the San Antonio Spurs in their first game after learning that Kobe Bryant will most likely be shut down for the season after suffering a torn rotator cuff in Wednesdays game against the Pelicans. For the first time in quite a while, the Spurs are fully healthy, but there is no way to determine who and when Popovich will choose to rest. The Lakers will be without Kobe Bryant (torn rotator cuff) & Tarik Black (sprained ankle), while Steve Nash & Julius Randle have been ruled out for the season. For a more in depth summary of tonight's match up, check out the game preview: Lakers @ Spurs Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:

Los Angeles Lakers San Antonio Spurs
PG Jordan Clarkson Tony Parker
SG Wayne Ellington Danny Green
SF Ryan Kelly Kawhi Leonard
PF Jordan Hill Tim Duncan
C Robert Sacre Tiago Splitter

Your drinking triggers for tonight include anyone mentioning:

  • Kobe's rotator cuff.
  • Kawhi recently returning from a hand injury.
  • The Lakers adjusted starting lineup.
  • Kobe being voted in as an All-Star starter.
  • Hollywood Night jerseys.
