The Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs must be absolutely sick of each other. Over the last week, Thursday’s matchup marks the third meeting between both teams over the last two weeks. The Lakers enter the game as the hottest team in the league. Following two wins against the Spurs, they extended their winning streak to four games.

Both teams may come in looking a little different. For LA, they have a few injury additions and subtractions. Alex Caruso is set to join the team after being out due to the NBA’s health and safety protocols. The trio of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Anthony Davis, and LeBron James are all questionable, per Dave McMenamin of ESPN.

LaMarcus Aldridge returned to the Spurs lineup on Wednesday night. No James or Davis could mean a lot of Kyle Kuzma and Talen Horton-Tucker. The Lakers’ two young guns have had flashes of offensive creativity.

Over the last three games against the Spurs, the Lakers are averaging 119.6 points. Contrarily, they have put up 100 points per game in their last two wins. Hopefully seeing the silver and black will kick their offense in gear.

Thursday’s game is scheduled to tip-off at 7 PM PST/10 PM EST.
