This is a tough time for Coach Chauncey Billups who had high expectations coming in this season. At first, CJ McCullom had a career-threatening condition but made it back to the roster missing a big chunk of games. Damian Lillard has been the heart and soul of the team and is considered to be out for the rest of the season unless he heals faster than expected. Adding to their injuries woes is backup center Cody Zeller and versatile forward Larry Nance Jr. This looks to be a baptism of fire for Coach Billups and this team could see some changes by the trade deadline.

The Los Angeles Lakers‘ woes continue and they fall three games below the .500 mark. The return of Anthony Davis has been abrupt and to add to that, LeBron James is now sidelined too. It is up to Russell Westbrook to carry the team and he has been the least reliable star among the team’s big three. Players like Malik Monk and Carmelo Anthony are stepping up to help Westbrook but other than that, everyone has been very inconsistent including Talen Horton-Tucker. So many stars and injuries plagued the team but entering this game, the Lakers will try to maximize their home court advantage.
