On Tuesday, the Brooklyn Nets will host the LA Lakers at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Tip off is set at 7:30 PM ET.
The Lakers are on a 6-game road trip for the first ten days of February. They have won their first two games against Minnesota and Detroit without Dwight Howard at center.
Pau Gasol has been instrumental in their first two wins on the road. He and Kobe displayed their chemistry throughout the game and it affected the rest of the team. Dwight Howard would be a game time decision with regards on how he feels with his shoulder injury.
Brooklyn has finally emerged as one of the teams in the East that could contend in the playoffs. They have won 11 of their 15 games for the month of January. They are well rested when they face the Lakers since their last game was last Friday against the Bulls, the Nets won 93-89.
