Clippers look to avenge season-opening night loss to Lakers tonight.

For various injury-related reasons, the Los Angeles Lakers vs. the Los Angeles Clippers has lost a bit of its gleam.

That’s quite evident with the purple and gold side of the City of Angels Battle.

Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Jordan Farmar and Steve Blake – among others – have been injury riddled for the entire season at one point or another.

On the red, white and blue side of the ledger, the Clippers are without all-star point guard Chris Paul who’s out with the separated right shoulder. On the bright side, sharp-shooter J.J. Redick is ready to play after suffering a broken hand in Sacramento last month.

The Lakers (14-22) have patch-worked their way through a tough stretch losing nine of their last ten games – including Wednesday night in Houston to Dwight Howard and the Rockets, 112-99.

The Clippers (25-13) have won five of six home games including Wednesday night’s 111-105 win over the Boston Celtics.

This is the first meeting between the two L.A. clubs since opening night when – in a Lakers home game – the Clippers dropped a 116-103 decision to the Lakers.

Tonight’s second meeting is a Clippers home game with tip-off set for 7:30.
