Record vs. each other (2012-13 season): Have not matched up this season
- Lakers feel a little better about themselves after beating up on the Cavs Sunday night, 113-93, which snapped the Lakers season long losing streak at 6.
- The Lakers are now 4 games behind the Portland Trailblazers for the 8th and final playoff spot.
- Dwight Howard looked refreshed Sunday night, his first game since returning from injury. Dwight had 22 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in the win vs. the Cavs on Sunday.
- The Lakers, who usually struggle against small & quick guards, will have 2 very quick and potent guards to deal with against Milwaukee. Bucks’ guard Monte Ellis leads the Bucks in scoring at 18.8 ppg and PG Brandon Jennings is right behind him at 18.5 ppg.
- The Lakers might have some resistance around the basket with the NBA blocks per game leader in Larry Sanders manning the paint for the Bucks.
- Pau Gasol will be out again for today’s game as he is still recovering from a concussion.
