Lakers Schedule 2012: New Orleans, Golden State Come To Staples Center

The Los Angeles Lakers have lost three of their last four home games, including Thursday's 102-93 defeat at Staples Center to Western Conference top dog Oklahoma City. But the Lakers have a chance to bolster their Pacific Division lead over the Los Angeles Clippers - currently a game and a half - with a pair of winnable home games this weekend. Here is the weekend schedule for the Lakers:

Saturday - New Orleans at Lakers (12:30 p.m., Fox Sports West): This is a rare occasion that the Clippers get the night game when they have a home game on the same day as the Lakers. The Lakers should have no problem with the Hornets, who are 13-38 this season. The Lakers have beaten New Orleans five straight times, and five straight times at home.

Sunday - Golden State at Lakers (6:30 p.m., Fox Sports West): The Lakers are 2-0 against the Warriors this season, including a 104-101 victory on Tuesday in Oakland. Hopefully Andrew Bynum won't shoot any three-pointers in this contest.
