Tonight, the LA Lakers will host the team who resides just down the hallway, the Clippers. After a depressing opening night & being beaten pretty handily by the Suns, the Lakers will look to put together a more complete effort. The Clippers will be on the tail end of a back to back, although their first game was at Staples Center as well. The Lakers will be without Nick Young (thumb surgery) & Ryan Kelly (hamstring strain), as well as Steve Nash & Julius Randle (who are out for the season). For a more in depth summary of tonight's match up, check out the game preview: Lakers vs Clippers Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:

SF Wesley Johnson Matt Barnes
PF Carlos Boozer Blake Griffin

DeAndre Jordan

Your drinking triggers for tonight include anyone mentioning:

  • "Rivalry".

  • Steve Balmer.

  • Former Lakers Jordan Farmar & Matt Barnes.

  • Kobe wanting Jeremy Lin to run the offense.

  • The Lakers shooting a 3 pointer.
