Tonight, the Lakers host the Nuggets at Staples Center just two days after the Grammys were held there. Luckily for the Lakers, they were off yesterday while the Nuggets were playing against the Thunder in Denver. Both teams are well out of the playoff race, and the Lakers are closer to the bottom of the NBA standings than they are to the Nuggets. The Lakers will be without Jordan Hill (hip flexor), while Kobe Bryant, 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 vs Nuggets Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:

Los Angeles Lakers Denver Nuggets
PG Jordan Clarkson Ty Lawson
SG Wayne Ellington Arron Afflalo
SF Ryan Kelly Wilson Chandler
PF Tarik Black Kenneth Faried
C Robert Sacre
Jusuf Nurkic

Your drinking triggers for tonight include anyone mentioning:

  • Former Lakers assistant coach & player Brian Shaw.
  • Magic Johnson.
  • Julius Randle almost out of his walking boot.
  • Nick Young's shooting slump.
  • Jordan Clarkson's 20 point game against the Cavs.
