The LA Lakers host the LA Clippers tonight at Staples Center. Tip off is set for 7:30 pm PST.

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:
