The Los Angeles Lakers (22-31) will host the Oklahoma City Thunder (31-24) at the Staples Center on Thursday (Friday AEDT), just four nights after travelling to the Chesapeake Energy Arena on Sunday (Monday AEDT).

Brandon Ingram scored 26 points for the Lakers, while Julius Randle added 21 points, eight rebounds and five assists. Los Angeles limited the Thunder to 35 second-half points while winning its eighth consecutive home game.

The Lakers were also short-handed, after a trade with Cleveland sent Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance, the Cavaliers, that will eventually bring Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye, plus the Cavs first round pick in 2018 to the Lakers.

The Thunder are playing the Lakers for the second time in five days. He ended the night 11-for-25 from the field en route to 29 points, nine rebounds and three assists. "Carmelo went down in the first quarter, and I thought Patrick came in, did a nice job". Steven Adams had 13 points and nine rebounds as the Thunder lost for the fifth time in six games.
