The Los Angeles Lakers head to Indiana to play the Pacers Friday night, and they'll be likely without Kobe Bryant, who was injured last game against the Atlanta Hawks -- but if you're a fan of the NBA, you've already heard plenty about that. Let's focus on the other players in action tonight. The game will be broadcast on TV, but you can watch a free live stream of it by clicking here, but please, click on that link at your own risk.

Dwight Howard will have to carry the load tonight against the Pacers, but that might be asking for too much considering Roy Hibbert is one of the best defenders in the league, heck, the entire Pacers squad are arguably the best defensive team in the league. The Lakers might have to rely on Steve Nash and Earl Clark to bomb from outside to avoid the Pacers' stiffling interior defense.
Paul George's length will also prove to be problematic for the Lakers. The Lake Show are currently in the eighth spot but the Jazz are only a half a game behind, so every game is almost a must-win for them, but a win tonight, without Bryant, looks to be a tough task.
The Lakers could push the tempo and hope that cancels out the Pacers' superior depth and length. Or maybe Bryant will play. He's been listed as day-to-day and he's notoriously tough when it comes to playing with pain.
