BRIEF: Live discussion: Assessing Lakers, Clippers at the All-Star break
Feb 13, 2013 (Los Angeles Times - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Join us for a live discussion at 11:30 today as Times Lakers writer Mike Bresnahan and Clippers writer Brad Turner will be discussing the two teams in a live video chat moderated by Times Sports Editor Mike James.
After the Clippers play the Rockets tonight, they will only have one game remaining, and that will be against the Lakers. That is also the Lakers' final game before the break in what has been a surprising first half of the season.
As Times Lakers blogger Eric Pincus wrote earlier this week, "The Lakers returned home, weary after their longest trip of the season. But despite losses at Phoenix, Boston and Miami, the team pulled out four wins in seven games.
"We're playing better. We're playing smarter," Kobe Bryant said Monday.
"Dwight Howard went down on the first stop of the trip in Phoenix, aggravating the torn labrum in his right shoulder. The Lakers (24-28) won three straight without him, then Pau Gasol was lost for six to eight weeks because of a foot injury.
"Every time we're playing well -- we find a rhythm of how we want to go about things -- it seems like we get hit with another injury," Bryant said. "Now we need to find another way to go about it. It's a moving target right now." ___ (c)2013 the Los Angeles Times Visit the Los Angeles Times at www.latimes.com Distributed by MCT Information Services
