Lakers Highlights: Los Angeles vs Atlanta Hawks

The Los Angeles Lakers have struggled recently, besieged by injuries to Julius Randle, D’Angelo Russell, and Nick Young while simultaneously hitting a brutal stretch in their schedule. As a result, they have just one win in their last five games and are hoping to get things back on track at home against the Atlanta Hawks.

Young will be back in action, but Randle and Russell remain out, which means that Jose Calderon and Thomas Robinson will slide into the starting lineup and hope to pick up some of the slack. Still, it’s going to have to be a team effort if Los Angeles wants to get a win over a talented Atlanta side.

Can the good guys get back into the win column and sweep the season series against the Hawks? Check out the highlights from the Lakers Twitter account:
