The Lakers and Kings clash in preseason NBA action tonight at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. For you poor multitudes not in town trailing players through casinos, catch the broadcast at 7:00 p.m. PDT on KCAL.
The Lakers are winless in the preseason thus far, but have a favorable history against the Kings: Los Angeles swept 4-0 last season, and only lost once in their '08-'09 regular-season series with Sacramento. The two teams last met in April, where the Lakers won 106-100.
As for what to expect tonight: More No. 24 (rejoice!). Phil Jackson intends to play Kobe Bryant for eight-minute segments in two quarters as he continues his surgical comeback.
