Tonight, the LA Lakers will take on the Detroit Pistons in the first part of their 3 game road trip. The Lakers will take on a team that many thought would have no problem making the playoffs in the East. However, the Pistons are still trying to figure things out under new coach and GM Stan Van Gundy, and only have 3 wins on the season. 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 & Pistons Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:
