Lakers' World Peace 'probably' out for Game 4; line moves

Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace will “probably” not suit up for Game 4 against the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday.

World Peace called his play “bummish” and “non-effective “ after L.A. suffered its worst home playoff loss in franchise history Friday. He proclaimed the team had a better chance of winning Game 4 without him after the 120-89 defeat.

The man formerly known as Ron Artest went 0-for-6 from the field in Game 3 and is now shooting 25 percent from the floor in the playoffs.

World Peace had liquid drained from a cyst in his left leg prior to Game 3, but the cyst is unrelated to the left knee surgery he underwent in March.

The Lakers trail the best-of-seven series 3-0 and have failed to cover in each of those games.

L.A. opened as a 9-point dog in Game 4 but some books are now dealing Lakers +10.5.

If he's not playing the Lakers at +10.5 look pretty good to me.

I give Artest a ton of credit for admitting the team is better off without him. He was arguably the worst starter in the NBA all season long.
