The Los Angeles Lakers take on the defending NBA champions, Golden State Warriors in a game with historic significance. It’s a tale of two teams, with the floundering Lakers hoping to gain some traction going against the hottest — and most unstoppable — squad in the league.

For the Warriors, this is a chance to put themselves in the record books, as a win would make them 16-0 and give them the best start in league history. Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green are sure to be locked in with that kind of notoriety at stake.

For the Lakers, losers of their last three and 2-11 overall, Tuesday’s nationally televised matchup has to feel something like a public execution. They are expected to go to Oakland and play the role of the Washington Generals, giving just enough resistance to allow the talented and exciting Warriors to put on a show. It’s going to be an excellent test of the young Lakers resolve; if they can maintain their composure in the face of such overwhelming odds, they just may surprise some people.

For the past two games, the young trio of D’Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, and Julius Randle have done much of the heavy lifting for Los Angeles. Russell in particular has been improving every game, and after taking on Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday, he will have to raise his game once more to deal with reigning-MVP Steph Curry.

The Warriors may be the heavy favorite, but the Lakers will surely relish the opportunity to play spoiler in front of a national audience. Check out the highlights below:
