This afternoon, the Lakers will take on the Mavericks for the third time this season. The first two meetings happened at Staples Center, and the Lakers lost both of those matchups. The most recent matchup happened on Dec 29, in which the final score was 101-89. The Lakers have gone 3-7 in their last 10 games, while the Mavs have gone 5-5. The Mavs look to be completely healthy, while the Lakers are still missing Luol Deng and Larry Nance Jr.
