Lakers Return Home To Host Warriors At Staples Center

The Lakers are 26-4 in their last 30 games against Golden State.

The Los Angeles Lakers look to get back on track Friday night facing the Golden State Warriors at Staples Center. This is the Lakers' second back-to-back set this season, and they are 0-1 so far on the second night. They have also played their lone back-to-back-to-back set already, and lost the second game but won the third game.

The Lakers provided an open path to the basket on Thursday night in Portland, losing 107-96 to the Blazers for their 17th loss in their last 21 regular season games at the Rose Garden. The Lakers are 0-3 on the road so far this season, but are 4-1 at Staples Center. Friday's game is the start of a brief three-game, five-day homestand. After the Lakers' game against Phoenix on January 10 the Lakers will have played eight of their 11 games at home.

Andrew Bynum continued his assault on Western Conference front courts with 21 points and 12 rebounds against Portland, his fourth double-double in four games this season. Bynum is averaging 22.3 points and 15.8 rebounds per game so far this season, and should feast on Andris Biedrins Friday night.

Stephen Curry is day-to-day with a sprained ankle for Golden State. The Lakers have beaten the Warriors six straight times at home and are 26-4 overall in their last 30 games against Golden State.

Friday night's 7:30 p.m. PST game will be televised by Fox Sports West. For more Lakers news and information, be sure to read Silver Screen and Roll.
