The Los Angeles Lakers host the Denver Nuggets as they look to rebound from a last-minute loss Tuesday to the Indiana Pacers. Elsewhere, the Boston Celtics face the Portland Trail Blazers without a suspended Rajon Rondo.
The Los Angeles Lakers look to get back to .500 Friday night as they welcome the Denver Nuggets to Staples Center. The Lakers are coming off a tough loss to the Indiana Pacers that ended when George Hill hit a scoop shot over Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard with .1 seconds left in the game. The game starts at 10:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on ESPN.
There are 10 other games on the schedule, highlighted by the Boston Celtics hosting the Portland Trail Blazers in their first of two games without Rajon Rondo. Rondo was suspended two games after shoving Kris Humphries Wednesday night, which led to an altercation that spilled in to the crowd. That game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET from the TD Garden. Humphries' Nets head in to Orlando to play the Magic (7 p.m. ET). Humphries was not punished for his role in the altercation, but teammate Gerald Wallace was fined for his role.
