Sixers vs. Lakers Late Night Game Thread

New, comments

This could be a weird one.

Here are some pre-game notes.

- Kobe Bryant will not play against the Sixers tonight due to a sore shoulder.

- Hollis Thompson is out for the Sixers due to a corneal abrasion.

- The Sixers sit three games ahead of the Lakers in the win column.

- The Lakers are 29th in offensive rating, per basketball-reference.com, but are 5.5 points clear of the Sixers on the season for 30th. The Lakers are last in defensive rating while the Sixers sit 22nd.

- Jahlil Okafor will be active and coming off the bench.

- Our (now outdated!) preview.
