The home team tonight is the Los Angeles Lakers who are 18-16 at home but hold a season record of 31-40 and 4th placed in the Pacific Division. There has been a huge amount of pressure on LeBron James to get the Lakers to the playoffs this season but as things are going it doesn’t look like they will get there. They have only won 1 game in the last 10 matchups and they are currently on a 4 game losing streak. The goal tonight will be to avoid sliding into a 5th consecutive loss. The big guy, LeBron James, is averaging 27.5 ppg, 8.5 rpg and 8 apg. He is pretty much pulling the team along with him as they head into darkness. There has already been talk of trading him and moving on.
