The Lakers are 29-4 in their last 33 games against Golden State.

The Los Angeles Lakers look to rebound from Tuesday's loss when they travel north to Oakland to battle the Golden State Warriors. The Lakers are tied in the loss column with the Clippers, and have four games remaining while the Clippers have five. The Lakers own the tiebreaker.

Kobe Bryant has scored at least 30 points in all three wins over Golden State this year, averaging 36.3 points per contest. Though Bryant is unlikely to play Wednesday night, potentially missing his seventh straight game.

The Lakers allowed an 18-0 run by San Antonio Tuesday night in a 112-91 home loss to the Spurs. The loss dropped the Lakers to 25-7 at home on the season. Andrew Bynum had 21 points and seven rebounds in the loss.

The Lakers (39-23) have beaten the Warriors in eight of their last 10 meetings in Oakland and have beaten Golden State in 29 of their last 33 matchups overall.. The Warriors have lost five straight games and 12 of their last 14 contests.

Wednesday's 7:30 p.m. PDT game will be called by ESPN and KCAL. For more news and notes on Lakers basketball, be sure to read Silver Screen and Roll.
