Warriors Vs. Lakers, NBA Preview: W's Look For Elusive Victory At Staples Center

As losers of nine of their last 11 games the Golden State Warriors are in a full blown free fall, fresh off blowing a 19 point lead to the New Jersey Nets on Friday. Now the Warriors must refocus to take on the Los Angeles Lakers at the STAPLES Center, a place where Golden State rarely can catch a break.

L.A. has won 14 of their last 15 meetings with Golden State, and after their latest lackluster performance against NEw Orleans, the Lake Show is fixing to come out firing. Kobe Bryant scored only 11 points, missing 18 of his 21 shot attempts from the floor. He may have some steam to let off because of it on Sunday.

W's rookie Klay Thompson is set to get his 12th straight start of the season, coming in averaging 17 a contest against the Lakers currently. His father Mychal is the Lakers radio color commentator.
