Lakers Today: 11/05/08

Here’s some light reading to tide you over until tonight’s game at 7:30:

In the LA Times, Mike Bresnahan breaks down the Lakers-Clippers rivalry and how the Purple & Gold have taken control while Brad Turner talks to Phil Jackson about how players getting less minutes can contribute.

Here are some bullet points from Phil Jackson’s post-practice media session (and supporting video).

The Lakers meet the Clippers tonight for the second time this season. Last time was a walk over, but the team is expecting tonight to be tougher with the Clippers finally pairing Baron Davis and Marcus Camby together. Check out the Lakers Gameday Preview for all your game info and an interview with Clippers radio voice Brian Sieman. Also read Projects for a little political take off on tonight’s action.

We’ll be heading over to shootaround this afternoon and have a report and some video from there. Talk to ya then.
