The Los Angeles Lakers will have two chances to right the ship this weekend as they try to improve upon their sluggish start to the season.
The Los Angeles Lakers will try to notch just their second win of the season when they host the Golden State Warriors in Staples Center on Friday. The Lakers are 1-4 while the upstart Warriors have started 3-2 under second-year head coach Mark Jackson. Four players average double figures for the Warriors, led by Stephen Curry (17.4) and Carl Landry (17.0).
The Lakers will host the Sacramento Kings on Sunday in one of five games on the NBA schedule. The Kings are 2-3 behind their big man DeMarcus Cousins, who is averaging 18.0 points, 10.0 rebounds and 2.2 steals per game.
The Grizzlies will host the defending champion Miami Heat on Sunday.
