Tonight, the Lakers will take on the Trail Blazers in LA after getting beat up by the Pelicans on Wednesday. Damian Lillard will be a tough test for Jordan Clarkon, who is pretty much the sole reason us Laker fans tune in for games nowadays. The Lakers will be without Nick Young (knee fracture), as well as Kobe Bryant, Wayne Ellington, Ronnie Price & Julius Randle, who have all been ruled out for the season. We aslo cannot forget our fallen comrades Steve Nash and Xavier Henry. 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 Jordan Clarkson Damian Lillard
SG Jeremy Lin Arron Afflalo
SF Wesley Johnson Nicolas Batum
PF Ryan Kelly LaMarcus Aldridge
C Tarik Black
Robin Lopez
