San Antonio Spurs       

The Spurs enter this evening’s contest sporting a weak 11-13 record that ranks them 5th overall in the Southwest Division. But in the Western Conference, the Spurs find themselves ranked penultimate. Considering the Spurs’ lengthy postseason appearance streak, it’s a bit disheartening to see them struggling this severely. It’s still early in the season and San Antonio still has time for a turnaround. However, they keep digging a bigger hole for themselves and it’s unlikely that this will pan out for the franchise. Although they’re pegged as a heavy underdog against the Lakers, the numbers suggest this might be a close contest. This is because the Spurs are averaging 109.3 to the Lakers 12.7 and are giving up 113.4 to Los Angeles’ 111.0.

Players to Watch: DeMar DeRozan (24.0 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 6.0 apg), LaMarcus Aldridge (18.2 ppg, 10.2 rpg, 2.4 apg), and Rudy Gay (12.8 ppg, 6.7 rpg, 2.2 apg).

Los Angeles Lakers

The Lakers enter this evening’s contest with a 14-9 record that ranks them 3rd overall in the Pacific Division. But in the Western Conference, LA finds themselves sitting at the No. 5 spot. Considering they were flirting with No. 8 in November, it’s good to see the club work their way up the conference ladder. Interestingly enough, it’s actually Golden State sitting on the No. 4 spot in the West, just 1-game ahead of the Lakers. With a stroke of luck the Lakers could very well usurp the reigning NBA champions. I guess that’s what happens when you acquire LeBron James during the offseason.

Players to Watch: LeBron James (27.8 ppg, 7.7 rpg, 6.7 apg), Kyle Kuzma (16.8 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 1.8 apg), and Brandon Ingram (15.7 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 2.3 apg).
