Los Angeles Lakers Vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Highlights
D’angelo Russell On Career Night: ‘i Don’t Play For Records Or Statistics’
Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers limp into Friday night’s game against the Atlanta Hawks following a string of injuries. The team will be without Jordan Clarkson (knee), Lou Williams (hamstring), and Kobe Bryant (shoulder), leaving head coach Byron Scott with limited options on the wing.

Meanwhile, the Hawks are coming off of a loss to the Golden State Warriors, but haven’t played since. Atlanta should be well-rested and ready to give the depleted Lakers all they can handle.

Rookie D’Angelo Russell will need to have another phenomenal night in order for Los Angeles to get a win. Forward Julius Randle will also have a difficult challenge ahead of him as he tries to check the versatile Paul Millsap. Randle has played well since reclaiming his starting role, but he will need to take his game to another level if he wants to match his Hawks counterpart.

Can the short-handed Lakers step up and get a win against the Hawks? Check out the highlights below:
