Lakers will mostly be homebodies for a while
A game against Atlanta opens a period in which they play three of four games and six of nine at Staples Center.

Road life in the NBA isn't exactly a series of connecting flights and Motel 6s.

Players fly charter and stay in posh hotels with marble bathrooms and turndown service.

Still, there's no place the Lakers would rather be than the spot where they always enjoy purple and gold status.

Beginning with a game against Atlanta on Tuesday night, the Lakers will play three of their next four games and six of their next nine at Staples Center, where they are a robust 11-2 as the home team.

They are only 5-10 on the road in the wake of their just-concluded Grammy trip, on which they won three games and lost three.

"It's a step in the right direction to be able to get a couple of road wins, especially the Boston one," Lakers center Andrew Bynum said Monday, referring to an 88-87 victory Thursday. "At home we just have to keep protecting our home court and get a little bit better on the road and our [overall] record will improve a little bit."

Going 3-3 on a road trip with this team is definitely a big improvement of our road record. I am hoping that since we will be home for a bit, that we can start racking up more wins. No more time to sacrifice games. They gotta start thinking of having a good record going into the playoffs.
