Tonight, the LA Lakers will host the Oklahoma City Thunder, as the Lakers will host one of the hottest teams in the NBA. Although they lost a close game last night to the best team in the NBA on the road, the Thunder are 9-2 in their last 11 games. The Thunder, however, may be without Kevin Durant as he rolled his ankle yesterday and did not play in the second half. The Lakers will be without Ryan Kelly (torn hamstring), while Xavier Henry, Steve Nash & Julius Randle have all been ruled out for the season. For a more in depth summary of tonight's match up, check out the game preview: Lakers vs Thunder Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:

Los Angeles Lakers Oklahoma City Thunder
PG Ronnie Price Russell Westbrook
SG Kobe Bryant Andre Roberson
SF Wesley Johnson Kevin Durant
PF Ed Davis Serge Ibaka
C Jordan Hill
Steven Adams

Your drinking triggers for tonight include anyone mentioning:

  • Kevin Durant's ankle.
  • Jordan Hill's upper respiratory infection.
  • Kevin Durant stating that he would love to play with Kobe.
  • The Lakers horrible loss to the Pacers on Monday.
  • The Lakers league-worst defense.
