Lakers vs Wizards Live Game Thread

The LA Lakers (12-33) host the Washington Wizards (30-15) tonight at the Staples Center. Tip off is set for 7:30 pm PST.

Tonight the Lakers will host a Washington Wizards team that has gone 6-4 in it's late 10 games. And even with that not-so-great recent record, they sit in 2nd place in the Eastern Conference. The Lakers sit in the exact opposite position in the Western Conference; 2nd to last. The Lakers will likely have Tarik Black for action as he played a few minutes in the Rockets game. However, they will be without Kobe Bryant (torn rotator cuff) & Nick Young (sprained ankle), as well as Steve Nash & Julius Randle who have been ruled out for the season. For a more in depth summary of tonight's game, check out the preview: Lakers vs Wizards Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:

Los Angeles Lakers Washington Wizards
PG Jordan Clarkson
John Wall
SG Wayne Ellington Bradley Beal
SF Ryan Kelly Paul Pierce
Jordan Hill

Nene Hilario
C Robert Sacre Marcin Gortat

  • Dr Jerry Buss' birthday.

  • The Lakers current 8-game losing streak.

  • John Wall being voted as an All-Star starter.
