The NBA is starting finally follow the NFL’s lead on getting bad games out of primetime slots. It looks like TNT and its advertisers will be happy because the Lakers-Bulls game will be flexed out for the Blazers-Rockets on January 20th.
The Lakers at Bulls game on Jan. 20 will no longer be televised on TNT. Portland at Houston will be televised instead.

This is probably for the best considering there will be no Kobe or Derrick Rose. Also no Steve Nash and who knows if Gasol will still be with the Lakers. This is the second time in a week the Lakers will have a game flexed out.
I just hope that Kobe doesn’t get mad anyway and send an angry tweet with hashtags.
