The Los Angeles Lakers play the Miami Heat on Wednesday, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.
The Lakers return home after going a solid 3-2 on their five-game road trip. LeBron James has been playing outstanding basketball, but they need his teammates to step up at both ends of the floor.
Miami may be waking up a bit after a poor start to the season. It has won nine of its last 13 games, including a 112-98 decision over the Lakers just a week ago.
Los Angeles will play nine of its next 12 games at Crypto.com Arena after playing a road-heavy schedule in December.
