2012 NBA schedule: Lakers, Clippers look to extend home winning streaks

Ronald Martinez

Both Los Angeles teams are currently in the midst of solid runs at home to start this season.

The Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers will both have an opportunity to extend their home winning streak this week with three games in Staples Center between Monday and Thursday.

The Clippers, who have lost three straight on the road, will be looking to extend their home tear to five consecutive games with a win over the New Orleans Hornets. After a bit of a promising start, the Hornets (3-9) have dropped their last seven games and have only been victorious on the road once this season (an 89-82 win in Chicago).

The following night the Lakers will play host to the Indiana Pacers (6-8) as they look to nurse a three-game winning streak of their own. This will be the Pacers first West Coast road trip. On the season, Indiana is 3-3 against unfamiliar Western Conference foes.

Then, following the off day, the Clippers will be welcoming a Minnesota Timberwolves team into town who have lost five consecutive games.

Check back with SB Nation Los Angeles throughout the week to see if these teams are able to continue making the Staples Center crowd proud.
