The Washington Wizards are back at home and getting ready to take on the Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe Bryant in his fresh new black mask. The Wiz are coming off a 20-point blow out loss to the Golden State Warriors and will be looking to rebound against the Lakers. Washington has just won one game in the past eight attempts, so they'll be trying to get themselves out of that funk and back on the right track.
Unfortunately for the Wiz, they're taking on a Lakers team who has just had their three-game winning streak snapped by the Detroit Pistons in overtime and will be looking to finish out the final two games on their road trip with victories. The two teams have yet to play in the 2011-2012 season and this will be their lone matchup.
Location: Verizon Center, Washington D.C.
Game Time: 7:00 p.m. ET
TV Schedule: CSN
Radio: 106.7 FM
