The Philadelphia 76ers will try to regain their early-season momentum that seemed to have disappeared over the month of December on Tuesday, when they visit the Los Angeles Lakers at the STAPLES Center (10:30 p.m. ET on Comcast SportsNet).
However, over the next week returning to their early-season form maybe difficult as the Sixers (14-17) play four games in five days, all on the road. Philadelphia doesn't return home until next Tuesday, Jan. 8, against the Brooklyn Nets.
First, the Sixers will need to get past the Lakers (15-15), who seem to finally be finding their rhythm. Los Angeles has won six of their last seven games, and are 3-1 since the return of point guard Steve Nash.
The match up is a part of Philadelphia's season-high eight-game road trip, which has already featured the Sixers going 1-3.
Location: STAPLES Center, Los Angeles, CA
