Staples Center will host a contest between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Philadelphia 76ers. The Lakers haven't been able to win consistently, coming in with a 13-17 record. Over in the other locker room, the 76ers are still looking for answers and enter the game with an 8-21 record. Contributing to their sub-.500 record has been their play over the last 10 games. They've come up on the losing end during nine of those games. This game will begin at 9:30 pm EST and CSN-PHI and TWC SN will be providing coverage of the contest.
The Lakers are regrouping after their disappointing loss to the Jazz, 105-103. Jordan Farmar was one of the best players for the Lakers, scoring 16 points while adding 7 rebounds and 7 assists. Meanwhile, the 76ers are feeling some disappointment after the 115-101 loss against the Suns. However, Thaddeus Young played well, recording his sixth double-double so far this year with 30 points and 10 rebounds.
There should be plenty of transition action in a game featuring a couple of the NBA's fastest-paced clubs. Los Angeles ranks fifth in the league in possessions per game (99.6 possessions per game), while Philadelphia is first (105.0).
