[new_royalslider id=”135″]

The Los Angeles Lakers are on a roll as of late winning two straight games and setting a franchise record for points in a quarter against the New York Knicks. Although the team has played well in the last two games, the Lakers seem to be much improved with Steve Nash running the show in the backcourt.

Unfortunately, Nash won’t be playing during the current two-game road trip according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin:

As McMenamin suggests, the Lakers will likely have Jordan Hill and rookie Ryan Kelly in the starting lineup on Thursday to face the Milwaukee Bucks. Both players have played well recently and will continue to earn more playing time with veteran center Pau Gasol on the shelf.

As for the point guard position, Kendall Marshall will continue to get the nod as the starting floor general with Nash unable to play and Jordan Farmar still dealing with an injured groin.

Heading into Thursday’s game in Milwaukee, the Bucks have the worst record in the NBA winning only 13 games thus far. Despite the ugly record, Milwaukee has beaten the Lakers once already this season with Brandon Knight lighting up the storied franchise for 37 points back on New Year’s Eve at the Staples Center.
