Tonight, the LA Lakers will take on the Atlanta Hawks in what may be their only winnable game until they face the Denver Nuggets on the 23rd. The Hawks currently sit as the 5th seed in the Eastern Conference. A place they seem to be no matter how many players they trade away. The Lakers will be getting the much needed return of Swaggy P. His offense should take some of the burden off of The Black Mamba. The Lakers will be without Ryan Kelly (torn hamstring), 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 @ Hawks Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:


Los Angeles Lakers Atlanta Hawks
PG Jeremy Lin
Jeff Teague
SG Kobe Bryant Thabo Sefolosha
SF Wesley Johnson Kyle Korver
PF Carlos Boozer Paul Millsap
C Jordan Hill
Al Horford
