Lakers @ Nets - Sunday, February 29, 6:00 PM

The Lakers and Nets meet for the first time this season in what should be a statement game for both teams. The Nets are looking to prove they belong with the elite teams of the West, after losing to Minnesota on Wednesday night. The Lakers want to prove that they are still championship material, despite missing key players to injury much of the year. Karl Malone is still out with a bad right knee, but Kobe Bryant has come back from injury strong, averaging 32.7 points per game since the All-Star break.
