After snapping a season-high six-game losing streak against the Utah Jazz, the Lakers are at home to finish up their four-game home stand as they host the Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets are coming off a win over the Memphis Grizzlies where they also snapped their own eight-game losing streak.

The Lakers will continue with Kendall Marshall as their starting point guard. After having a career night in his first start, Marshall finished with 20 points and 15 assists against the Jazz. After reports that the Lakers had shipped Pau Gasol to the Cleveland Cavaliers, he remains with the team and is expected to start tonight. However, Mike D’Antoni will be using a different lineup once again — inserting Wes Johnson back into the starting five after coming off the bench in their last game. The change in the lineup will make this the 19th different starting lineup that the Lakers have used this season. With a win tonight, the Lakers will improve to 9-9 on their home floor and snap a five-game losing skid against the Nuggets.
