Today in the Daily Sports Roundup: College hoops tournaments continue around the country, while the Kings meet the Stars, and the Suns play host to the Lakers.

Tipping off on the hardwood . . .

The NBA offers up a dozen games on Friday night, including a big Western clash between the Lakers and Suns in Phoenix. Los Angeles (47-18 SU, 27-36-2 ATS) shook off their skid with a 109-107 home win over the Raptors on Tuesday night. Kobe Bryant led the way with 32 points for the Lakers in that contest, while Andrew Bynum was good for 22 points on the night. The Suns (40-25 SU, 37-27-1 ATS) got past Indiana 113-105 in their last game on Saturday. Phoenix is 1-2 vs. the Lakers this season, and forward Channing Frye (suspension) is out Friday.

Also on the NBA hardwood on Friday: the Clippers at Charlotte, Indiana at Boston, Chicago at Miami, New York at Memphis, New Jersey at Oklahoma City, Washington at Detroit, Denver at New Orleans, San Antonio at Minnesota, Utah at Milwaukee, Portland at Sacramento, and Cleveland at Philadelphia. The Cavaliers (50-15 SU, 31-32-2 ATS) got back into the win column with a 97-95 home win over San Antonio in their last game on Monday night. LeBron James sat out that contest to rest his sore ankle, but he is expected to play Friday night.

As well, the bigger college basketball tournaments in the ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big 10, C-USA, MWC, Pac-10, and SEC hit their middle stages on Friday, in advance of the weekend’s championship games. Two ranked teams will also hit the floor in the Atlantic 10 tournament at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City on Friday, with St. Bonaventure at No. 17 Temple, and Dayton at No. 24 Xavier. The Owls (26-5 SU, 20-11 ATS) had no trouble with St. Bonaventure in their regular-season meeting, winning 73-55 on the road. The Musketeers (23-7 SU, 19-10 ATS) beat Dayton 78-74 at home but lost 90-65 on the road in their two meetings.

Taking a trip around the rink . . .

Finally, there are just six games on the NHL’s schedule for Friday, with Tampa Bay at Washington, Pittsburgh at New Jersey, Minnesota at Buffalo, the Rangers at Atlanta, Nashville at Anaheim, and Los Angeles at Dallas. The 39-22-5 Kings are coming off a 3-2 overtime loss in Chicago on Wednesday night. Dustin Brown and Anze Kopitar scored for the Kings in that game, while Jon Quick made 40 saves. The 29-25-12 Stars fell 5-3 in Buffalo in their last game on Wednesday night, and they’ve picked up the loss in all four games vs. the Kings this season.
