Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers (37-35) have not won the 2nd game of their back-to-back in 14 tries the entire season. They hope their fortunes turn tonight against the reeling Milwaukee Bucks (34-36).
Tonight's game is also a back-to-back for the Bucks after losing to the lowly 76ers on the road. But unlike the Lakers, Milwaukee have won 6 of their 11 2nd night of a 2-games-in-2-nights schedule. However, the Bucks are barely above .500 at home posting an 18-17 record. In fact, they have dropped 3 of their last 5 games at the BMO Harris Bradley Center and are currently riding a 4-game skid overall.
The Lakers snapped their 3-game losing streak against the Timberwolves last night, 120-117, allowing them to maintain their 1-game lead over Utah (who won last night) and 1-and-a half in front of Dallas for the 8th spot in the west. Another win tonight on the road will bode well for the Lakers in making sure they are the team holding that playoff ticket when the regular season ends for them on Apr...

Jim Boylan benched Jennings for the remainder of the second half, a move he was not pleased with, claiming postgame that he’s being “singled out.” The Bucks went on to lose to the Sixers, 100-92.

(spoiler alert: Side with the deer.)What you’re about to witness is the epic confrontation between Dwight Howard and “Bango,” the inflatable equivalent of the Milwaukee Bucks mascot, filled by a man who is willing to stand in the hallway of the BMO Harris Bradley Center and pretend to be an immobile roadside balloon statue (or whatever) until Dwight Howard walks by. If you...
