Tonight, the Lakers will play in their first preseason game on their home court. They host the Golden State Warriors. It will be Kobe's first time playing against the Warriors since his achilles injury back in 2013. Julius Randle looks to continue his nice start to the preseason, Jordan Clarkson and Jeremy Lin will both try to find their shot, and the rest of the Lakers look to get better as a team. The Lakers will be without Nick Young (thumb surgery), Ryan Kelly (hamstring strain) & Xavier Henry (recovering from last seasons injuries).
