Nets vs. Lakers game preview: How to watch, TV channel, start time
The Brooklyn Nets (30-19, fourth in the Eastern Conference) host the Los Angeles Lakers (23-27, 13th in the Western Conference) at Barclays Center on Monday for the second and final matchup between the two teams this season. The Lakers lead the series 1-0.
In the first game, a Lakers 116-103 win on Nov. 13, Anthony Davis had 37 points and 18 rebounds for Los Angeles to help them snap a five-game losing streak. For Brooklyn, Kevin Durant had 31 points to lead the team in scoring and try to make up for Kyrie Irving missing the game due to a team-imposed suspension that he was serving at the time.
Brooklyn comes into this game having won just three of its past nine games. Durant hasn’t played in that span due to his sprained right MCL that he is rehabbing. Los Angeles comes into this game having won four of its past 10 games which includes a frustrating loss to the Boston Celtics on Saturday. The Lakers will be missing LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Austin Reaves for this contest.
