Where to watch Kings vs Lakers game?
The Kings won in triple overtime in a matchup between the two clubs last Friday. Each of these NBA teams reflects a unique point of view.
You can watch the game on the NBA App if you have an NBA League Pass membership, and it will also be aired nationally on TNT. Let’s take a look at the latest team news and our Dream11 picks for the LA Lakers versus Sacramento Kings showdown.
Team news and injuries
Going into Tuesday, the Los Angeles Lakers have a long list of injured players. The list includes the team’s two leading scorers, Anthony Davis and LeBron James. Before the game against the Detroit Pistons, Davis suffered a concussion. He did, however, play for more than 37 minutes. Due to the same injury, he has been reclassified as probable. But there’s a good chance he’ll end up playing.
For this game, the Kings are without a player who is listed as out on their official injury report. However, they have listed Harrison Barnes as questionable, and Maurice Harkless as questionable against the Los Angeles Lakers. Barnes, who has been out the previous two games due to an injured right foot, is expected to miss another game on Wednesday.
Kings vs Lakers preview
The Los Angeles Lakers have failed to live up to the high expectations that were placed on them before the season began. They are currently in the seventh position in the Western Conference with an 11-11 record. Since his return from injury, LeBron James has had a tremendous impact, but the team’s lack of defense remains a major source of worry. After beating Detroit, the squad will be confident going into the game in Sacramento, but they are well aware of the Kings’ capabilities.
Due to their dismal start to the 2021-22 season, the Sacramento Kings recently sacked head coach Luke Walton. They are now ranked 11th in the Western Conference with an 8-13 record. De’Aaron Fox, Tyrese Haliburton, and Davion Mitchell are among the team’s young guns, all of whom have shown significant potential in the league. The Kings will be brimming with confidence after defeating the Lakers earlier in the season. The Kings will be even more motivated to win now that rumors have surfaced that LeBron’s abdomen condition has worsened.
Kings vs Lakers Head to Head record
During the regular season, the Kings and the Los Angeles Lakers played 438 games, with the Kings winning 160 games and the Lakers winning 278. The Kings have won four of their past five meetings with the Lakers.
