  5. What to watch: Lakers at Hornets with Hornets24/7

    Brian Kamenetzky

    In theory, a matchup against the 10-win New Orleans Hornets shouldn't be much of a challenge. The Hornets no longer have Chris Paul (as you may have heard) have lost Eric Gordon for most of the season, are missing Emeka Okafor, and could be without C...

  9. Pau Gasol still unsure of his future in Los Angeles

    Brian Kamenetzky
