Both the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers have two games apiece at the beginning of the week as the early NBA season continues.

The Clippers will travel to face the San Antonio Spurs on Monday at 5:30 p.m. PT and then head to Oklahoma City for a nationally televised contest against the Thunder at 4:30 p.m. PT on ESPN.

The Lakers welcome the Brooklyn Nets to the Staples Center for the Nets' only visit of the season on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. PT and then they'll travel north to play the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday at 7 p.m. PT.

On Wednesday, you can catch San Antonio at Boston, New York at Dallas and Milwaukee at Miami in three of the bigger games of the week.

The Clippers enter the week at 7-2 and atop the Pacific Division while the Lakers are 4-5, three games back of the Clippers in the Pacific.
