World Peace Suspended
Metta World Peace of the Los Angeles Lakers is suspended for one game. He will be missing the game against the Brooklyn Nets. He was called for a Flagrant 1 foul against the Pistons on Sunday. This is also adding to the loss of Dwight Howard, who is out with a shoulder injury. Howard is missing his second straight game for the Lakers, and this time out could be costly. Howard has been hit in the shoulder before, and the Lakers don't like that. In fact, they filed a complaint to the NBA about hard fouls versus Howard. Head coach of the Lakers, Mike D'antoni, is a coach who doesn't mind if his team shoots. He doesn't feed the post too much in his offense, and Dwight Howard is accepting that. With both of these players out, it hurts the Lakers' aggressiveness. World Peace is one of the strongest players in the NBA, so it really hurts their aggressiveness. I think the Lakers will lose to the Nets tonight because they lose aggressiveness and their rebounding ability.
