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

An exciting clash between two California-based NBA teams awaits us on Tuesday evening as the Los Angeles Lakers battle it out against the Sacramento Kings. Both teams have found a bit of form in recent weeks after battling some adversity of late. So this one should be a very interesting match-up.

The Los Angeles Lakers have followed their shock five-game skid by claiming two important wins on the trot. They began their year by defeating the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday. It was a much-needed win for LeBron James and co., who are stuttering in their bid to win the NBA title this season. The Lakers still have plenty of work to do, as they are still only in seventh place, which is simply not good enough for a team that possesses the star power they do. They will be the clear favorites heading into this local derby clash.

The Sacramento Kings are also underperforming this season, but not by much. Expectations are always low when it comes to the Kings, and they sit in tenth place in the Western Conference standings heading into this match-up. They shocked the Miami Heat on Sunday in what was a tight game. That win will give them a lot of confidence, even though it came against a team that had to make do without 60% of its regular roster.

The game will be broadcast locally in the Los Angeles Lakers market on the Spectrum SportsNet channel and the Sacramento Kings market on the NBC Sports California channel. Fans living in out-of-market areas can watch these two teams battle it out on NBA TV with a live stream on fuboTV.
