The Indiana Pacers wrap up their only West Coast roadie this season when they face the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night. Flying home with a 2-1 record on the trip and a win over the Lakers would sure be sweet only because it won't be easy.

The Lakers are back home after suffering double-digit losses in Florida to Orlando and Miami on national TV which always magnifies all of the team's faults. Essentially you can expect the Lakers to bring that same level of desperation that Sacramento displayed on Wednesday except they'll have Kobe Bryant.

But a bigger challenge for the Pacers will be the rare NBA front court that could present Roy Hibbert and David West problems with the size and productivity of Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol giving the Lakers and advantage.

Here is the Pacers.com preview. For a Lakers perspective, check out Silver Screen and Roll. Also, after the game check out Pacers Overtime on WIBC 93.1FM with Eddie White. Need to have an Indy Cornrows mention on the show!
