Tonight, the Lakers will play against the Trail Blazers, even though they saw this same team 6 days ago. The Lakers and Blazers are in opposite positions in the Western Conference. While the Lakers are 2nd to last, the Blazers are in 2nd place, only behind the Golden State Warriors. The Lakers will be without Kobe Bryant (rest), as well as Steve Nash & Julius Randle, who have been ruled out for the season. For a more in depth summary of tonight's match up, check out the game preview: Lakers vs Blazers Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:

Los Angeles Lakers Portland Trail Blazers
PG Ronnie Price
Damian Lillard
SG Wayne Ellington Wesley Matthews
SF Wesley Johnson Nicolas Batum
PF Ed Davis LaMarcus Aldridge
C Jordan Hill
Chris Kaman

  • Tarik Black's break out performance on Friday against the Magic.
  • The Lakers Sunday White uniforms.
  • Ronnie Price getting stitches after an elbow from Thomas Robinson on Monday.
