Lakers’ Nash to Miss Clippers Game Sunday
Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash will likely miss his third consecutive game Sunday against the Los Angeles Clippers because of a hip injury.
“I don’t think he’s going to go,” Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said after the Lakers’ practice Saturday afternoon. “We’re shooting for Tuesday, hopefully.”
Lakers point guard Steve Blake will again start at point guard. Blake is averaging 10.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in his past three games while shooting 47.8 percent from the field and 50 percent from 3-point range. Blake, however, is also averaging 4.5 turnovers in his last two starts.
