December Lakers Games
Here is a look at December Lakers games for both their home games at the Staples Center as well as their away games. Last season there were fifteen December Lakers games. The Lakers ended the month of December winning six games and losing nine ones. The Lakers went 2-3 at the Staples Center during December. The Lakers at home last December averaged 102 points per game at the Staples Center.
Lakers at 76ers, December 1
Tickets start at $33.00
Venue: Wells Fargo Center
In a duel between the two worst teams in the league right now, the focus will be on Jahlil Okafor and D’Angelo Russell. Okafor and Russell were the No.2 and the No.3 pick in the 2015 draft, and this will be the first time they play against each other. Okafor will surely want to show the Lakers what they missed since he was rumoured to go No.2 to the Lakers before the team from LA decided to opt for Russell. Did the Lakers make the right choice? Or not?
Lakers at Wizards, December 2
Tickets start at $28.00
Venue: Wells Verizon Center DC
D’Angelo Russell will get to play John Wall, a point guard that was also sloppy with the ball when he first got into the league. Wall was troubled by turnovers in his first two years before he turned into one of the best five point guards in the league. Russell doesn’t have the explosiveness of Wall, but he does have a similar court vision and sees passes that few people see them.
Lakers at Hawks, December 4
Tickets start at $45.00
Venue: Philips Arena
What the Lakers and Kobe Bryant are preaching, the Hawks are playing. Team basketball is the essence of the Hawks philosophy, but they are also carried by Jeff Teague and Paul Millsap. The Lakers can only hope that D’Angelo Russell and Julius Randle will grow up and develop to be at least that good. They will get a chance to see first-hand how team basketball is played.
Lakers at Pistons, December 6
Tickets start at $58.00
Venue: The Palace of Auburn Hills
Roy Hibbert prides himself on the defensive end, and he will have his hands full in this game as he tries to keep Andre Drummond away from the boards. Drummond dominated the Lakers in their first duel, as the team was unable to box him out. Can they keep him away from the boards this time around?
Lakers at Raptors, December 7
Tickets start at $51.00
Venue: Air Canada Centre
There was a time when Kobe Bryant dropped career-high 81 points on the Raptors. No player on the Raptors roster played back then. The Raptors now have the superior player at the shooting guard position, with Demar DeRozan playing at an All-Star level. Kobe never backs down from the challenge, but can he handle DeRozan?
Lakers at Timberwolves, December 9
Tickets start at $21.00
Venue: Target CenterCenter
The Lakers opened the regular season against the Timberwolves, and the duel didn’t disappoint. Now, the Lakers will visit Minnesota and play Karl-Anthony Towns. Julius Randle should be hyped for the matchup against another big young man.
Lakers at Spurs, December 11
Tickets start at $64.00
Venue: AT&T Center
Emotions will be everywhere in the building as the Lakers play in San Antonio as this might very well be the last game Kobe and Duncan play in against each other in San Antonio. Duncan and Kobe have been in the league for 19 years, and both had their battles over the years as the Spurs and the Lakers battled for supremacy in the early 2000s.
Lakers at Rockets, December 12
Tickets start at $48/00
Venue: Toyota Center
Many people point to James Harden as a better version of young Kobe. Harden has yet to hit his prime, but he is one of the best shooting guards, if not the best at the moment. The Lakers will also face Dwight Howard, one of the rare stars that have left Los Angeles. Hibbert versus Howard should be an interesting duel.
Bucks at Lakers, December 15
Tickets start at $35.00
Venue: Staples Center
Greg Monroe opted to join the Bucks, even though he had an offer on the table from the Lakers. Los Angeles fans are not so forgiving, and they would probably boo Monroe every time he touches the ball. On the court, Julius Randle will get the assignment of going against Monroe, both on the offensive and on the defensive end.
Rockets at Lakers, December 17
Tickets start at $50.00
Venue: Staples Center
Just a few days after the two teams are playing in Houston, they will play again in Los Angeles. And the duel at the Staples Center might be the more interesting one, as Howard will have to face LA fans. There was a time when Kobe was going hard at Dwight, but that is history as the two seem to have cooled off. The Lakers will have other things in mind, as their young backcourt duo of Clarkson and Russell goes against proven veterans in Harden and Ty Lawson.
Lakers at Thunder, December 19
Tickets start at $80.00
Venue: Chesapeak Energy Arena
The Lakers visit the Thunder for the first time this year to play Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. It won’t be an easy challenge for the Lakers, but their young players will benefit greatly from it. There was a time when Westbrook and Durant were young and losing 50+ games in a season. Now, they are one of the best one-two punches in the league.
Lakers at Nuggets, December 22
Venue: Pepsi Center
Tickets start at $36.00
Emmanuel Mudiay was not happy that the Lakers passed on him in the draft. He made that statement when the Nuggets were playing in Los Angeles, and he tried to show the Lakers what they were missing. Now, he will get the chance again in Denver. Lakers fans can only hope that D’Angelo Russell has the same mindset to show the Lakers they got the better player in the draft.
Thunder at Lakers, December 23
Tickets start at $75.00
Venue: Staples Center
Few days after the Lakers visit the Thunder, Oklahoma City comes in town. It is a known rumour among Lakers fans that they want to see Russell Westbrook in purple and gold as the electric point guard will become a free agent in 2017. But the Lakers have two young and players manning the point guard, and if Clarkson and Russell show they are up for the challenge, the Lakers might have their point guard. The Thunder coming to Los Angeles will be a hot game on the December Lakers game schedule.
Clippers at Lakers, December 25
Tickets start at $135.00
Venue: Staples Center
There is simply no game between the Clippers and the Lakers that isn’t entertaining. There are many matchups to watch on, starting from Randle trying to contain Blake Griffin, to D’Angelo Russell learning a trick or two from Chris Paul and much more. The Clippers are the better team in Los Angeles for a few seasons now, but the Lakers always give the effort to show they can beat the Clippers. The Clippers versus Lakers Christmas day game will be one of the strongest December Lakers games on their schedule.
Lakers at Grizzlies, December 27
Tickets start at $38.00
For Julius Randle to learn a thing about playing in the post and bully players down low, there is no better teacher than the duo in Memphis, Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. Randle is not the heavyweight that Randolph is, which will be enough of a challenge for the young power forward.
Lakers at Hornets, December 28
Venue: Time Warner Cable Arena
Tickets start at $37.00
The Lakers brought in Roy Hibbert for his defence, and he will get to show it against the Hornets, as he will have to stop one of the best traditional big men in the league to score. Big Al Jefferson is fundamentally sound, and his footwork is incredible. Can Hibbert stop him?
Lakers at Celtics, December 30
Tickets start at $74.00
Venue: TD Garden
It is an iconic game for Kobe Bryant, as this might be the last time he plays in Boston. The Lakers and the Celtics are two of the most successful franchises in the NBA, and Bryant lost and won a title against the Celtics in his career. No player from those 2008 and 2010 Finals is on the Celtics roster, but Kobe is still balling. As for matchups, there will be plenty, especially between young players: Randle versus Sullinger, Isiah Thomas versus D’Angelo Russell, Clarkson versus Marcus Smart. Can the defensive guards of the Celtics stop the offensively minded Lakers guards? The Celtics game will close out the December Lakers games schedule.
The December Lakers games schedule will have them playing nine games against teams above 500% and five games against below 500 teams. Eight of the December Lakers games schedule will be against Eastern Conference teams.
