Sixers vs. Lakers game preview: How to watch, TV channel, start time

The Philadelphia 76ers will return home to kick off a 7-game homestand on Friday as they play host to the Los Angeles Lakers, and if you’re wondering how you can watch all the action live, you’ve come to the right place. The Sixers just wrapped up an 0-3 road trip so they will be looking to bounce back.

Philadelphia will be looking to build a bit of a winning streak and continue to climb up the standings in the Eastern Conference. The Lakers have been playing better ball as of late, but they are still an inferior basketball team at the moment and the Sixers have to take advantage of having James Harden back in the lineup with Joel Embiid to get the job done on Friday.
