Lakers vs. Nets: Stream, lineups, injury reports and broadcast info for Friday

The Los Angeles Lakers host the Brooklyn Nets on Friday, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.

The Lakers have won two games in a row, and they will look to give themselves a legitimate winning streak when they take on a Brooklyn team that is just 16-24. They dominated the playoff-caliber Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday with their defense and transition game, and they held Dallas to just 27.5% shooting from 3-point range.

Two nights earlier, they held the Oklahoma City Thunder, one of the NBA’s elite offensive squads, to just 105 points on 41.7% shooting.

While the Nets are struggling, they do have some viable talent. Mikal Bridges has taken his game to the next level ever since arriving in last year’s Kevin Durant trade, while guard Cam Thomas has emerged as a gem in his third season.

Los Angeles will also get a look at an old friend: Lonnie Walker IV, who played for it last season and is averaging 12.8 points in 19.4 minutes a game while shooting 45.5% from downtown.
