After winning three straight, the Los Angeles Lakers lost in a disappointing fashion again on Wednesday night, falling to a lottery-bound, star-less Phoenix Suns team. To make matters worse, Dwight Howard once again reinjured his shoulder, and Pau Gasol, once again, complained about being benched.

But Kobe Bryant isn't worried.
"We're on track, this one slipped away," he told reporters that night.
His nonchalant attitude was surprising, since Bryant is known as one of the most insanely competitive men in sports. But he insists the team has finally figured things out and the loss to the Suns was just a minor setback. Well, he'll have a chance to prove it tonight against the Wolves, another team that's probably lottery bound, thanks to that squad's horrible injury luck.
Kevin Love, the lone superstar on the Wolves, has missed most of the season with a broken hand. Ricky Rubio, the team's second most important player, is still struggling to fully recover from his ACL injury, which he suffered last season against the Lakers. They've played well despite major injuries, but they're likely not going to make the playoffs. Which, fans may remember, would be a huge disappointment to Love, who publicly aired his frustrations about never having played in the playoffs.
Of course, the big rumor is that if Love's frustrations with his team continues, he'll opt-out in 2014 and join the Lakers.
