With the 107-95 loss against the Dallas Mavericks, the Lakers are back at it again to face another playoff contending team, the Clippers. In their first meeting, the Clippers lost 116-103 to the Lakers on Oct. 29, but have since dominated in the last two match ups. Back on March 6, the crosstown rivals were able to give the Lakers their worst lost in franchise history at the Staples Center.
With the Lakers having limited players on the active roster to face the number one team in the Pacific Division, the team is without Kobe Bryant, Xavier Henry, Chris Kaman, Jordan Farmar, and Pau Gasol.
This is shaping up well for the Lakers tomorrow vs. Clippers: No Kobe, no Pau, no Kaman, no Farmar, no Xavier and probably no Nash.
