Tonight, the Lakers will take on the Thunder in what hopefully will not be a repeat of their last meeting, in which the Lakers lost by 40, and were called scared by their own head coach. The Thunder come in to tonight with a 2 game win streak, and having gone 8-2 in their last 10 games, while the Lakers won last night in Denver against the Nuggets for their 5th victory of the season. Tarik Black and Metta World Peace will be inactive tonight.

Los Angeles Lakers Oklahoma City Thunder
PG Jordan Clarkson
Russell Westbrook
SG Lou Williams Andre Roberson
SF Kobe Bryant Kevin Durant
PF Larry Nance Jr Serge Ibaka

Tonight's drinking triggers include:

  • The Lakers only having 5 wins on the season
  • The Lakers 40 point loss to the Thunder just a week ago.
  • The Lakers beating the Nuggets last night
  • The Kobe Bryant farewell tour
  • Kobe Bryant's 31 points versus the Nuggets
