Where: Staples Center.
On the air: TV: Time Warner Cable SportsNet, Time Warner Cable Deportes; Radio: 710, 1330.
Records: Lakers 15-21; Cavaliers 9-29.
Record vs. Cavaliers: 0-1.
Update: Cleveland will be without center Anderson Varejao, who underwent surgery to repair a torn leg muscle. But the Cavaliers have two things the Lakers hate — backcourt speed (Kyrie Irving) and youth (Irving, Dion Waiters, Tristan Thompson). Reserve forward Luke Walton is averaging 2.7 points and 2.5 rebounds in what could be his last career game against the Lakers. His six-year, $30-million contract expires after this season.
