The recently added game rounds out a schedule that also features two 7:30 p.m. games at Staples Center (Charlotte Bobcats Oct. 17, Clippers or Utah Jazz Oct. 18) and two 7 p.m. games at the Honda Center in Anaheim (Warriors Oct. 7, Denver Nuggets Oct. 22).
The rest of the Lakers' schedule includes 7 p.m. games against the Sacramento Kings (Oct. 15 at Las Vegas' Thomas & Mack Center), Golden State (Oct. 20 in Citizens Bank Arena) and Denver (Oct. 23 in San Diego's Sports Arena).
