Who’s pumped for Magic vs. Kings later? Just me? Okay, okay, there are plenty of games for you to choose from on Friday night’s slate, thankfully. Like Knicks-Wizards! Nope? We’re striking out left and right here ... Anyway, the marquee matchup later on is between two top teams from each conference. The Milwaukee Bucks will look to shake off a loss to the Phoenix Suns when they take on the Utah Jazz, who have the best record in the NBA at 20-5.

As for injuries, Anthony Davis is questionable to play again for the Lakers. He’s dealing with an Achilles injury and has missed the past two games. The Lake Show has been fine behind MVP favorite LeBron James. The team could opt to hold AD out another game at home vs. a Grizzlies team that will likely be shorthanded. Let’s take a look at the games and some injury notes.
