2012 NBA schedule: Clippers, Lakers set for weekend matchup

Harry How

Both the Clippers and Lakers will play two games this weekend, including a Friday matchup pitting the two Los Angeles teams against one another.

The Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers have got off to noticeably different starts this season. The highly-touted Lakers have already drawn heavy criticism by dropping their first two games, while the Clippers had a strong debut, defeating the Memphis Grizzlies, 101-92. Including their eight preseason games, the Lakers have lost 10 and the Clippers have won four straight outings.

Both the Lakers and Clippers have two games scheduled for this weekend, but the highlight of the action will undoubtedly come Friday night when the two teams from Los Angeles face off against each other in the Staples Center.

Here's all the information for this weekend's slate of games.
