San Antonio Spurs
LOS ANGELES -- As all the attention centered around one question for the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night -- will they get their Phil or won't they? -- the team still had to work to do against a division rival. However, with Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins suspended by the NBA for berating San Antonio Spurs analyst Sean Elliott after the teams' Friday matchup, the Lakers could afford a little less focus.

A pretty sweet gig indeed, but that doesn’t mean it comes completely free of drawbacks. For example, in Friday’s game against the Kings, Green found himself the last line of defense between a charging DeMarcus...
