The LA Lakers (2-9) visit the Houston Rockets (9-2) tonight at the Toyota Center. Tip off is set for 6:30 pm PST.

Andrew Richardson-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight, the LA Lakers will take on the Houston Rockets after getting their second win of the season last night in Atlanta. This will complete their 4th back to back in this young season. While the Lakers have had to go through one of the toughest schedules to date, the Rockets have had one of the easiest. The Rockets will still be without Terrence Jones, which is good news for Carlos Boozer, as he destroyed us on the offensive glass the last time we played. The Lakers will be without Ryan Kelly (torn hamstring), Wayne Ellington (personal), 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 @ Rockets Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:


Los Angeles Lakers Houston Rockets
PG Jeremy Lin
Patrick Beverley
SG Kobe Bryant James Harden
SF Wesley Johnson Trevor Ariza
PF Carlos Boozer Donatas Motiejunas
C Jordan Hill
Dwight Howard
