The LA Lakers go head-to-head against the Oklahoma City Thunder after a successful two-game set against the Houston Rockets. The Lakers have not lost on the road this season, going 6-0 and matching the franchise record set by Magic Johnson’s Lakers in the 80s.
LeBron James and company will look to break the team’s road record to begin the season against the Thunder on Wednesday.
With a 0-4 record at home this season, it will be interesting to see how OKC line up in the Lakers game, knowing that they’re facing one of the league's top defensive teams. Coach Mark Daigneault has to rally his troops to put forth a more inspiring effort when the game tips off tonight.
