Thanks to NBA live streaming and televised coverage, Basketball fans will be able to enjoy this latest match-up.

Hottest NBA winning streak?

Right now, besides the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL, one has to credit the Golden State Warriors for putting together an impressive win streak.

They've now reeled off nine victories in a row including their recent 43-point victory over this very same Lakers team. Other teams that Golden State has taken down en route to the hot win streak are the Celtics, Raptors, Mavericks, Suns, Bucks, and Pacers. Ironically, the last team to beat them was the Lakers in Los Angeles, 117-97 on November 4th.

Coming into tonight's game, Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry are the No. 7 and No. 8 scorers in the league, putting up a combined average of 52.6 points per game. A bit lower down the list is Klay Thompson, who is adding at least 20 a game. It's no surprise that the Warriors lead the league in total points scored with 119.2 a game while holding opponents to 106.7 per game.

Only the Clippers have a higher differential, of +13.8 over their opponents.

Will the Lakers have an answer?

As mentioned, these two teams have met twice before tonight's meeting, with a 1-1 record.

The Lakers (8-8) were able to put up a valiant effort earlier this month, but just a few days ago were decimated by the red-hot Warriors. Now there appears there will be more issues ahead of their next attempt to give a more respectable effort.

Several players will be sidelined for Los Angeles in their attempt to avenge the recent loss to the Warriors.

Guard Nick Young has a sprained toe, while forward Julius Randle is dealing with a hip pointer. Add in the fact that point guard D'Angelo Russell has been out with a sore left knee recently. It leaves them without several of their key personnel heading into a matchup with a team that is clearly on a mission to steamroll their way to the NBA Finals.

However, in their victory over Golden State earlier this month, they were the only team to hold them to under 100 points and also halted a three-point shooting streak by Stephen Curry. More of the same could help them stay competitive in tonight's game.
