NBA on TNT's late game on Tuesday features the Los Angeles Lakers (32-41) and the Washington Wizards (30-44) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif.
How to Live Stream Lakers-Wizards
The LeBron-led Los Angeles Lakers started off the year pretty well, being in fourth place in a stacked Western Conference on Christmas Day. It has been downhill ever since. With LeBron getting injured on Christmas against the Golden State Warriors, and the injury bug hitting other key players on the Lakers, they have not played many games at full strength in 2019. However, this Lakers squad continues to battle game in and game out, even though they've dropped eight of their last 10 and have officially been eliminated from playoff contention.
The Wizards are in a similar scenario, with their star player John Wall missing this season with a torn Achilles. Bradley Beal has been the one to shoulder the load in his absence, but he clearly isnt enough to lead the team to the postseason. The Wizards have dropped four straight and lost seven of their last 10, and begin a West Coast road trip tonight against the Lakers. Although they have not been eliminated yet, it seems that the Wizards will miss the playoffs once again.
Although the game does not have playoff implications, it's sure to be a competitive and entertaining matchup between teams in a similar boat.
