Tonight at 7:30 p.m., the Nets battle the Los Angeles Lakers at Barclays Center.

Brooklyn will look to conclude its four-game homestand with a win. Dwight Howard will finally be where he wanted to be all along ? in Brooklyn ? but he will not be playing in the game.

The Lakers are in a hot streak right now, having won five of their last six games including the last two. If Los Angeles plans on making a playoff run, this pace of play needs to continue.
