Tonight, the LA Lakers will host the Oklahoma City Thunder, as the Lakers will play against one of the hottest teams in the NBA. However, the Thunder will be without Kevin Durant, who has a procedure on his ankle last week, and Russell Westbrook, who fractured a facial bone in the Thunder's last game. So, the Lakers will have a chance to extend their winning streak to 4 games. The Lakers will be without Nick Young, as well as Kobe Bryant, Ronnie Price, Steve Nash & Julius Randle who 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 Thunder Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:

Los Angeles Lakers Oklahoma City Thunder
PG Jordan Clarkson D.J. Augustin
SG Wayne Ellington Andre Roberson
SF Ryan Kelly Kyle Singler
PF Carlos Boozer Serge Ibaka
C Robert Sacre Nick Collison
