Lakers Schedule 2012: Showdown With Clippers Highlights Week Ahead

The Los Angeles Lakers are a struggling team right now, to say the least. They are having all sorts of trouble on offense, and have lost four of their last five games. They have already lost to the Los Angeles Clippers once this season, and look to stave off their crosstown rivals on Wednesday. Here is a look at the week ahead for the Lakers.

Wednesday - Clippers at Lakers, 7:30 p.m. (Fox Sports West, Prime Ticket): The Lakers are the designated home team for this battle, and the Lakers will have their hands full, especially if Chris Paul returns to the Clippers after missing five games with a strained left hamstring.

Saturday - Lakers at Milwaukee Bucks, 5:30 p.m. (KCAL): After playing 18 games in 29 days to open the season, the Lakers have their first week with only three games scheduled. Milwaukee is just 6-9, but they are 4-1 at home. The Lakers will have two games off heading into Saturday's meeting, while the Bucks will be playing their second of back-to-back nights.

Sunday - Lakers at Minnesota Timberwolves, 4 p.m. (KCAL): The Lakers get their first look at Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, and the gang.
