Two top NBA contenders face off in the regular season on Wednesday evening as the Dallas Mavericks host the Los Angeles Lakers in what should be another playoff-level match-up. With the star-studded talent on show, this is one game that is not to be missed.
The Dallas Mavericks have struggled to find their consistency so far this season, and they are currently languishing in seventh place in the Western Conference standings with a 14-13 record. Luka Doncic and co. have come out on top in their last two games. But their record against fellow NBA contenders has hardly been the best this season. They will need a top performance to get the win on Wednesday.
The Los Angeles Lakers are one place and one win ahead of the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference standings heading into Wednesday's game. LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and co. have also struggled for consistency. But they have won six of their last ten games and also go into the game on the back of a two-game winning streak. Both these teams would like to be further up the standings, and the winner of Wednesday's game will get a massive boost in their quest.
The game will be broadcast locally in the Los Angeles Lakers market on Spectrum SportsNet and the Bally Sports SW-DAL in the Dallas Mavericks market. Fans who do not live in these states can watch the game live as well, as it will be broadcast live nationally on ESPN with a live stream on fuboTV.
