The Lakers visit the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday night, playing their fourth of four on the road.  This is the first meeting between the Lakers and Sixers since the Dwight Howard/Andrew Bynum/Andre Iguodala trade that landed Howard in Los Angeles. Bynum is a Sixer in name but has yet to play, struggling with knee issues.  Philadelphia may not have point guard Jrue Holiday, who is a game-time decision after a foot injury. The Sixers (12-11) are currently eighth in the Eastern Conference after losing two straight.  The Lakers (10-14)

If UC Santa Barbara has any chance against fifth-ranked Ohio State in a first-round NCAA tournament game at Milwaukee on Friday, it might be because of its unusual defense. It's a brainteaser — even to some coaches who are used to facing it. Dan Monson, Long Beach State's coach, compared it to the annoying way Princeton plays offense. "You have to make a lot of basketball decisions against that zone that you don't normally have to make," he said after losing to the Gauchos in the Big West Conference tournament title game.

Now for the NBA draft, otherwise known as The Calm Before LeBron. In brief, Washington will take Kentucky's John Wall, who should awaken the Wizards from their deep sleep as if kissed by a prince. Then Philadelphia will take Ohio State's Evan Turner, who should awaken the 76ers, etc. Aside from the premium picks, however, Thursday's draft is merely final maneuvers for July 1, when LeBron James and a superstar-studded class with Dwyane Wade, Amare Stoudemire, Chris Bosh and Joe Johnson are officially free agents.

Sixers 103 - Lakers 99 (end of regulation) The Sixers upended the Lakers 103-99 at Staples Center Tuesday night. Jrue Holiday, who missed the December game between the two clubs, scored 26 points and dished 10 assists. The Lakers struggled to deal with Philadelphia's pick and roll much of the night. Spencer Hawes seemed to hit a long jumper every time the Lakers needed a crucial stop. Philadelphia missed four-straight free throws but the Lakers didn't have the time (or ability)

Lakers 111 - Sixers 98 (final) The Lakers played a loose brand of basketball in Philadelphia on Sunday, taking advantage of a Sixers squad playing without their point guard (Jrue Holiday) and center (Andrew Bynum). The Lakers have a little more experience to this point without Steve Nash and Pau Gasol, although not much to show for it in record. Metta World Peace was a force, scoring 19 points, pulling down a career-high 16 rebounds, blocking two shots and collecting four steals.
