Live chat: Lakers vs. Golden State Warriors
Following last night's defenseless debacle in Phoenix, the Lakers should find some relief against an upset-minded Golden State squad at Staples Center.
Four games in five nights has taken its toll on the defending champs and they'll be eager to finish out the year on a high note. We'll see if someone other than Kobe Bryant can have a standout game.
But Golden State hasn't been itself lately -- the Warriors are coming off impressive victories over Boston and Phoenix.
