Update: The Lakers will reach the midpoint of their season-long six-game trip after playing Philadelphia, one of the league's biggest surprises. The young, up-tempo 76ers present a striking contrast to the older, plodding Lakers. "It's going to be a matter of whose style of play is dominant enough to win," Lakers guard Kobe Bryant said. Philadelphia starting point guard Jrue Holiday, a former UCLA standout, has welcomed a former Trojan this season in rookie forward Nikola Vucevic, who is averaging 5.5 points and 4.6 rebounds in 15 minutes.
