The shorthanded Los Angeles Lakers are currently on a three-game losing streak and look to avoid making it four in a row as they take on their cross-town rivals, the Los Angeles Clippers. Both teams are playing without their superstars. Kobe Bryant due to his knee injury, and Chris Paul is expected to miss up to six weeks with a separated right shoulder.

At the beginning of the season, both teams had different expectations. The Lakers would look to fight for one of the last playoffs spots and the Clippers would try to break into the conversation of being a title contender for the first time in franchise history. Unfortunately, for the Lakers, the injuries woes continued to haunt them as they did last season. However, the Lakers are still looking to stay as close as they can to one of the final playoff spots as players try to recover from injuries.

In the first meeting between these two teams, the Lakers were able to come out and have one of their best wins of the season, beating the Clippers 116-103. This time around, Mike D’Antoni has a much thinner roster to work with, as they try to get one win in their four-game road trip as it comes to an end. With a win tonight, the Lakers will get their 15th win of the season. The same number of wins the team had at this point of last season, when they were favorites to win the NBA Championship.

      I sure hope they seal the deal tonight.
      I can’t stand hearing my buddy talk $hit about how the “Flakers” suck and how Kobe is not a top 5 player to ever play in the NBA.

        True talk i have my uncle and cousin they are Clippers fans since 1985 and they are always talking crap to me about the Lakers being Fakers and losers and how they suck so bad they are like a College team and they say Kobe Bryant is barely a top 10 player ever.SMH at the hate Clippers fans bring.

        Clippers are originally made up of Lakers haters and people who feel sorry for losers they gave sympathy to the bad LA team the Clippers and hated the LA Lakers since they battled Boston many times in the 80′s they got sick of watching the Lakers win so much and make so many finals appearances and win so many championships.

        Go Lakers!
