The Los Angeles Lakers only have one game standing between them and their first extended break of the season as they head north to Sacramento to face off against the Kings in the Lakers’ first half of the season finale. The Lakers also have a fresh opportunity to get back into the win column heading into their nine-day break after losing on Tuesday night to the Phoenix Suns. But they will do so without LeBron James, who will miss his first game of the season.

The Kings have been searching for wins for a lot longer than the Lakers. The Kings have lost 10 of their last 11 games coming into Wednesday, with their loss on Sunday being the most agonizing of them all, as they lost an 8-point lead in the final 53 seconds to lose to the Charlotte Hornets, 127-126.

Here’s when you should tune in to see the game:

  • Date: Mar. 3

  • Time: 7 p.m. PT

  • TV Channel: Spectrum SportsNet, NBC Sports Sacramento, NBA League Pass

  • Spread via BetMGM: Lakers +3.5
