Pau Gasol will be out for the Lakers tonight, as will Blake Griffin for the Clippers. The advantage goes to the Lakers, obiosuly, as it gives Andrew Bynum some more playing time to get himself started this season.
Predictions: Lakers 101, Clippers 87. Kobe for 33. Bynum gets 22-11. Baron Davis nails four threes. DJ Mbenga plays, gets loudest ovation.

RIP Blake Griffin. Will he start when he comes back, assuming he’s phased into the lineup the first few games to make sure he’s at 100%?
@justin: I think he goes to the bench upon his return. If he was going to start the season there, I can’t imagine how 6 weeks out of the line-up would make him more worthy of a starting spot.
