Lakers vs Sixers: how and where to watch NBA clash
All the information on how and where to watch the NBA showdown between the struggling Los Angeles Lakers and red-hot Philadelphia 76ers on March 23
In the second meeting between these two powerhouses this season, the Lakers are looking to avenge their humiliating defeat back in January. In that first contest, the 76ers took LA apart, posting 105 to the Lakers 87.
It will be an uphill battle for the purple and gold, who come in as seven-point underdogs, with LeBron questionable for the game with left knee soreness. But at 10 games under .500, the Lakers are fighting for their playoff lives, and an animal backed in a corner is dangerous indeed.
On the other side of the paint, the Sixers can solidify their claim on first place in the Eastern Conference and a win here can offer them that crucial home-court advantage.
What time is tip off?
Out west in LA, the game is set to tip off at 7 p.m. Pacific, 10 p.m. Eastern.
