LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers picked up a big win over the Thunder the other night. They now sit one game below five hundred with a 20-21 record. They look to obtain an evenly set record with a win over Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks tonight. The game is in one hour, at 8:30 p.m. ET. The Mavs are a team that now ranks second in the league with three-point attempts, which sets up for a collision with Los Angeles, whose three-point defense helped out big with their Monday night win. It’s going to be a big matchup tonight.

Lakers vs Mavericks starts at 8:30 p.m. ET and will broadcast on ABC. That limits the number of streaming options you have. Fortunately, your best option could also be free. Let’s dig in.
