How to Watch Atlanta Hawks vs. Los Angeles Lakers: Live Stream, Start Time, TV Channel, Odds, Predictions

By Sachin Sharma / January 7, 2022

The 2021/22 NBA season continues on Friday with the resurgent Los Angeles Lakers taking on the struggling Atlanta Hawks. This has all the makings of a very intriguing basketball contest between two teams that have seen plenty of highs and lows over the last 18 months.

The Los Angeles Lakers appeared to be struggling last month, but they have made quite an impressive start to 2022. The 2020 NBA Champions have won each of their last three games and will be confident of continuing this run on Friday. LeBron James appears to be in fine form and could cause many problems to the Hawks defense with his all-round world-class play. The Lakers are currently sixth in a very tightly contested Western Conference table.

The Atlanta Hawks surprisingly made the NBA Eastern Conference Finals last season, but they have been brought back to reality this year. Despite Trae Young's incredible and sometimes historic performances, the Hawks are only 12th in the Eastern Conference standings at the moment. They are in real danger of missing the playoffs and will need to find their form quickly if they want to get back on track.

The game will be broadcast locally in the Los Angeles Lakers market on the Spectrum SportsNet channel and the Atlanta Hawks market on the Bally Sports SE-ATL channel. Fans living in out-of-market areas can watch these two teams battle it out on ESPN with a live stream on fuboTV.
