Tonight, the Lakers will take on the Hawks in their final meeting of the season. The Lakers played the Hawks back in December and left Atlanta with a loss under their belts. The Hawks are 4- 6 in their last 10 games, while the Lakers are 1-9, with that sole victory coming against the Brooklyn Nets. The Hawks have pretty much a fully healthy squad with only Tiago Splitter missing in action, while the Lakers have been pretty beaten up this week. Kobe Bryant will likely rest his shoulder, Lou Williams is out for at least a week with a hamstring strain, and Jordan Clarkson is questionable with a knee sprain.

Here are tonight's projected starters:

Los Angeles Lakers Atlanta Hawks
PG D'Angelo Russell Jeff Teague
SG Jordan Clarkson Kyle Korver
SF Anthony Brown Kent Bazemore
PF Julius Randle Paul Millsap
C Roy Hibbert Al Horford

Tonight's drinking triggers include:

  • Jordan Clarkson's knee
  • Former Laker Kent Bazemore
  • Lou Williams previously playing for the Hawks
  • Kobe Bryant's shoulder
  • Al Horford being a free agent next year
