NEWS: Greg Oden is done for the year after undergoing Microfracture surgery today, the third of his career and second on his left knee.
But now, let's distract ourselves with a nationally-televised game. The Portland Trail Blazers stop by the Staples Center to play the Los Angeles Lakers (7:45 tip-off, maybe). Much like the Blazers, the Lakers are having a rough season, and probably feel lucky to be playing .600 ball. However, they're a much better team at home. Assuming TNT doesn't preempt us, what are your expectations tonight?
Injury Report: All's quiet.

The usual rules apply:
1. No swearing | 2. No pictures | 3. Be Nice!
4. Don't discuss unofficial game streaming, even when the game is on ESPN.
And, of course, have fun. Go Blazers! -- Tim
