It’s Friday night, and the NBA is set to broadcast a pair of premiere games on national television. One of those matchups will be the Los Angeles Lakers taking on the Philadelphia 76ers. With a quarter of the season done, both L.A. and Philly are looking to get back on track after disappointing starts to the season.
The Lakers are trending in the right direction thanks to the excellent play of LeBron James and Anthony Davis. However, their roster still needs an upgrade in shooting, so it’s only a matter of time before the Lakers trade for a sharpshooter. For the Sixers, injuries have been the story so far. Tyrese Maxey and George Niang have been ruled out, and James Harden just got back from a foot injury, so he’s still getting back into game shape.
When is the game between the Lakers and the 76ers?
The game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Philadelphia 76ers will start tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET. The game will be played at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The announcers for the game will be Dave Pasch, Richard Jefferson, and Monica McNutt. According to WynnBet, Philly is favored by 4 points.

Meet the teams
The Los Angeles Lakers head into Philadelphia with an overall record of 10-14. After a brutal 2-10 start, the Lakers have turned things around, winning eight of their last 12 games. Many of these wins can be attributed to Anthony Davis, who is having a monster season with per-game averages of 27.3 points and 12.3 rebounds.
The Philadelphia 76ers come into this game with a 12-12 record. Many, including myself, thought Philly would be a top-4 team in the Eastern Conference. That could still be the case, but the team needs to get healthier. The Sixers took a step in the right direction this past Monday when James Harden returned for his first game in over a month.
