Mark Medina and Melissa Rohlin preview the Lakers-Clippers game

The Lakers and Clippers are about to play their second regular-season game.

The teams only meet three times this season and if the Clippers are the victorious, they will win their season series against the Lakers for the first time since the 1992-1993 season.

The Clippers won the first regular-season meeting, 102-94, on Jan. 14. It was a chippy affair in which five technical fouls were assessed.

Since then, some trash talking has ensued. Despite the fact that players from both teams deny that there's rivalry, Matt Barnes has publicly accused Blake Griffin of being a flopper. At practice Tuesday, Griffin smiled that statement off.

The Lakers have lost three games in a row while the Clippers have recently beaten Miami and Dallas, both high-caliber teams.
