Time, TV schedule & Live stream l NBA Season 2020-21 The LA Lakers go head-to-head against the Oklahoma City Thunder after a successful two-game set against the Houston Rockets. The Lakers have not lost on the road this season, going 6-0 and matching the franchise record set by Magic Johnson’s Lakers in the 80s. LeBron James and company will look to break the team’s road record to begin the season against the Thunder on Wednesday. Dennis Schroder, one of the new pieces for the defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers, will visit his former workplace Wednesday. Schroder will play his first game in Oklahoma City since the Thunder traded him to the Lakers in the offseason for Danny Green and Jaden McDaniels. With a 0-4 record at home this season, it will be interesting to see how OKC line up in the Lakers game, knowing that they’re facing one of the league's top defensive teams. Coach Mark Daigneault has to rally his troops to put forth a more inspiring effort when the game tips off tonight. It’s a battle of Western Conference foes on the parquet floor in the Sooner State. The Los Angeles Lakers are on the road again as they make the trip to face the Oklahoma City Thunder Wednesday night. Los Angeles was in action on the road Tuesday night as they faced the Rockets in Houston, so this is the second game of a back-to-back situation for them. The Lakers beat the Rockets 120-102 in Houston Sunday night in their previous contest. Oklahoma City was at home as they faced San Antonio Tuesday night as they log the second game of a back-to-back set as well. In their previous game, Oklahoma City beat Brooklyn 129-116 on the road Sunday. The Lakers own a 146-107 advantage in the all-time regular season series between the teams and took three of the four meetings last season. In the most recent matchup, it was Oklahoma City picking up a 105-86 “road” win in the bubble on August 5, 2020. Los Angeles Lakers Playing Second Game of Back-to-Back Road Set Los Angeles was in action in the Lone Star State on Tuesday night as they battled the Rockets in Houston. The Lakers entered Tuesday night leading the Pacific Division by one game over the Suns and Clippers. Los Angeles is 1-1 in the second game of back-to-back situations though they sport a -3 point per game differential (112 ppg for, 115 ppg against) in those contests. The Lakers entered Tuesday 5-0 on the road on the year with a +10.8 ppg scoring differential (110.4 ppg for, 99.6 ppg against) in those contests. Los Angeles is 7-3 against Western Conference teams on the year, averaging 114.2 points per game while allowing 105.3 points per contest, giving them a scoring differential of +8.9 points per game in those contests. "I'm glad and grateful I'm on this team and organization," said Schroder, who is averaging 14.3 points per game. After winning back-to-back games in Houston on Sunday and Tuesday, the Lakers are 6-0 on the road, their best start away from home since 1985-86. A win Wednesday would give Los Angeles the best road start in franchise history. "We've got a great group of guys and we want to continue what we've been doing on the road so far," LeBron James said. James and Schroder enjoyed a playful exchange in the second quarter of Los Angeles' 117-100 victory over Houston on Tuesday night. As James released a 3-pointer right in front of the Lakers bench, he turned toward his new teammate. "Bet it," James said to Schroder, who had just told James, "Bet you won't make it." "A bet isn't official until you look a man in the eye," said James, who finished the game with 26 points and matched his season best with four 3-pointers. As the ball went through, James and Schroder slapped hands and the Lakers bench erupted. That exchange is telling of how the Lakers are coming together, Los Angeles coach Frank Vogel said. "One of our most important goals is to build that chemistry," Vogel said. "That's a positive sign for this year's group. Every year, your team has to re-establish its chemistry whether there's changes to the roster or not, and it's a priority of ours to try to build that chemistry every time we're together." The Lakers could be without Anthony Davis for the Wednesday game. Davis jammed a toe in the Tuesday contest, and Vogel said the big man was questionable for the game against the Thunder. Oklahoma City also will be on the second night of a back-to-back set, coming off a 112-102 home loss to the San Antonio Spurs. While the Thunder have thrived on the road, going 5-1, they have lost all four home games so far. Even so, new Oklahoma City coach Mark Daigneault is encouraged by the club's start. "If you look at the 10 games in totality, I've been pleased with a lot of things," Daigneault said. "We've established really good habits. I think we've established a really consistent approach, which first and foremost for us is our priority. "I think we've established a pretty good five-man way of playing on both ends of the floor. ... If you zoom out and look at the first 10 games, it's a pretty good foundation that we can try to build on." The back-to-back is just the second for the Thunder this season. Oklahoma City lost to the Utah Jazz on Dec. 28 and fell against the Orlando Magic on Dec. 29. The Lakers are 1-1 on the back end of such situations this season. The Wednesday game is the first of three meetings between the teams this season and their only matchup in Oklahoma City. --Field Level Media Copyright 2021 STATS LLC and Associated Press.
