Tonight, the LA Lakers will take on the Dallas Mavericks. This marks the first time the Lakers will play against the new look Mavericks. Rajon Rondo joins an already star-studded starting lineup in Dallas after his trade from Boston a few days ago. The Lakers and Mavericks have completely opposite records, as the Lakers are rebuilding and the Mavs are trying to contend in the jam-packed West. The Lakers will be without Ryan Kelly (torn hamstring), while Xavier Henry, Steve Nash & Julius Randle have also been ruled out for the season. For a more in depth summary of tonight's match up, check out the game preview: Lakers @ Mavericks Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:

Los Angeles Lakers Dallas Mavericks
PG Ronnie Price Rajon Rondo
SG Wayne Ellington Monta Ellis
SF Wesley Johnson Chandler Parsons
PF Ed Davis Dirk Nowitzki
C Jordan Hill
Tyson Chandler
