Los Angeles Lakers vs. Philadelphia 76ers live stream: where to watch the game
Logos of Lakers and the Sixers.

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.

Raiders vs. Rams live stream: Where to watch Thursday Night Football

Week 14 in the NFL kicks off with the Las Vegas Raiders heading to Los Angeles to play the Rams on Thursday Night Football (TNF). Both teams are under .500, but the teams are headed in opposite directions. The Raiders have not lost a game in almost a month, while the Rams have not won a game since October.

All hope is not lost for the Raiders, as Las Vegas still holds a 5% chance of making the playoffs, according to CBS Sports. For Los Angeles, the Rams are not mathematically eliminated, but their chances of making the playoffs are less than 1%. One interesting note is the Rams claimed quarterback Baker Mayfield off waivers, so there is a chance the former number-one pick will suit up on TNF.
