Mike D’Antoni made it known coming into the season that there was a strong possibility of Steve Nash sitting out some games in the second night of a  back-to-back.

Many were under the impression that Nash might have a chance to play tonight due to the starters sitting the entire fourth quarter of the Lakers 116-103 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers to start the 2013-2014 season.

Nash sitting games is likely going to be a continued trend throughout this season, as the Lakers are taking the necessary precautions in order to keep him fresh.
