The Lakers charge into this evening’s matchup sporting an 11-8 record that ranks them 3rd overall in the Pacific Division and 7th overall in the Western Conference. All in all the Lakers are right in the middle of the pack and will be looking to climb the conference ladder in order to secure a spot in this year’s postseason. The Clippers currently lead the West since they sport a slightly better win percentage than the Warriors, who are currently shooting themselves in the foot.

Naturally, a win over LeBron James would help them out tremendously in that department. Entering tonight’s action riding a 3-game winning streak, it’s looking like Denver has the momentum to take care of things at home this evening.
