Tonight, the LA Lakers will take on the San Antonio Spurs in the 1st game of a 2 game home stand. The defending champs come into town sporting a 2 game winning streak, after defeating the Clippers and Warriors on the road. The Lakers will have their hands full, as the Spurs have been resting in southern California since Wednesday. The Lakers will be without Ronnie Price (suspension), Nick Young (thumb surgery) & Ryan Kelly (hamstring strain), while Steve Nash & Julius Randle have both been ruled out for the season. For a more in depth summary of tonight's match up, check out the game preview: Lakers vs Spurs Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:
