Watch Lakers vs Thunder. The Los Angeles Lakers continue to look like a completely defeated team while on the court without Lonzo Ball, and they’ll have to try and turn that around once again when they face the Oklahoma City Thunder. Ball has been ruled out for the second game in a row with knee soreness, which is bad news for the purple and gold.
The Lakers have gone 0-7 in outings without Ball, which is about all of the #AdvancedStats you need to start drawing conclusions about the probabilities of a Lakers win on the road Wednesday afternoon, Lakers vs Thunder.
How to watch Lakers vs Thunder
Date: Wednesday, Jan. 17
Time: 8 p.m. ET
Location: Chesapeake Energy Arena — Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
The Thunder are on a two-game winning streak after dropping three in a row. Russell Westbrook is close to averaging a triple-double, continuing to be the clear leader of the franchise as Paul George rides shotgun, Lakers vs Thunder. George is averaging 3.1 points under his career-high in points per game, but he’s having a lights out season from beyond the arc. He’s not only attempting a career-high 7.2 attempts per game from outside, and shooting 43.1 percent from beyond the arc.
Anyone know a team that could use a dominant two-way player with a three-point shot on the wings?
Brandon Ingram and Larry Nance Jr. are both listed as probable, and it seems likely they’ll both be on the floor in Oklahoma City. The Lakers need all hands on deck if Ball is out, and even that may not be enough with how poorly they’ve performed without him.
With that said… enjoy the game, you loyal fans. Game 43 is on the way.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have been all over the place this season, looking spectacular at times, and downright awful at others. Currently, they’re on one of their good stretches, having won two games in a row. And with the Los Angeles Lakers coming into town, Lakers vs Thunder they should be able to extend that winning streak to three games.
When these two teams played at the beginning of January, the Thunder crushed the Lakers by 37 points. Plus, they haven’t dropped a game in OKC to the Lakers since back in 2014. And furthermore, the Lakers might be without two of their best young players Lakers vs Thunder Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram. The rookie point guard is likely out, according to reports, though Ingram could return. The Lakers this season are 0-7 when Ball doesn’t play.
