The Lakers will attempt to avenge their Dec. 26 loss to the Nuggets at the Staples Center. Here's the full rundown of Sunday's NBA schedule.
The NBA's schedule is fairly light on Sunday, with only five games on the slate. The best matchup of the day is probably the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers, and the Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat will square off in separate games.
Oklahoma City Thunder at Toronto Raptors, 1 p.m. ET, FSOK/TSN
The Thunder may have the NBA's best record, but the Raptors have won eight of their past 10 games and are playing teams very tough.
Washington Wizards at Miami Heat, 6 p.m. ET, CSN/SUN
The Wiz have lost four straight games, and got smoked by 30 the last time they played the Heat. This may not go so well for Washington.
The Pistons have won four in a row, and host a reeling Bobcats team that has lost nine of its last ten games.
The Grizzlies have hit a rough patch after a dominant first month of the season, but should still be able to handle the Suns, who have lost seven of their last eight games.
Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Lakers, 9:30 p.m. ET, Altitude/TWC
The Nuggets have struggled to find consistency this season, but have an opportunity to hand the Lakers their third straight loss.
