Up next for the Lakers: Tuesday night vs. Atlanta

When: 7:30.

Where: Staples Center.

On the air: TV: FS West; Radio: 710, 1330.

Records: Lakers 16-12, Hawks 18-10.

Record vs. Hawks (2010-11): 2-0.

Update: This is the start of a five-game trip for the Hawks, whose 9-5 road record is one of the best in the NBA. Though guard Joe Johnson averages a team-leading 18.2 points, many consider Atlanta's best player to be well-rounded forward Josh Smith, who is averaging 15.6 points, 9.2 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.1 blocks. Johnson made the All-Star team, but Smith was not selected by Eastern Conference coaches who picked the reserves.
