Philadelphia 76ers vs. Los Angeles Lakers, NBA Game. Second game in the city for the 76ers. The team lost the first of two games in Los Angeles. The first defeat was obviously against the other West Conference leader, the Clippers. But the Lakers at home are much more lethal than the first. There is very little left for the Lakers to reach 50 wins, and tonight they could be a little closer to that number.
Philadelphia 76ers: Dangerous city.
The problems this season for the 76ers are on the road. The team does not know how to win away from home. So far the record is negative with 9-22.
