In Chicago, Comcast Sports Network will air the game live. Spectrum Sports Network will do the same in Los Angeles. This game will also be streaming live for NBA League Pass subscribers.
The Lakers have over-achieved considerably this year under the guidance of rookie head coach Luke Walton. Early-season wins over teams like the Golden State Warriors have pushed the team back into the national spotlight, and their young core is gaining popularity as a result. Perhaps no youngster in the league is as popular and exciting as Lakers point guard D’Angelo Russell. Unfortunately, Russell is out for the next few weeks as he recovers from an ankle injury.
Los Angeles looks to bounce back from a 105-88 blow-out loss to the New Orleans Pelicans last night in New Orleans. Flying across the country on a back-to-back will do them no favors.
The Bulls have had a similarly inspiring season, and now sit third in the Eastern Conference standings. They are 7-3 in their last 10 games, which corresponds with a reduced role for point guard Rajon Rondo. Led by wings Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade, the Bulls have been one of the league’s most surprising stories through the first month of the year.
Chicago can keep their momentum from a 105-89 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on November 25 with another victory tonight. They will surely have a rest advantage.
Date: Wednesday, November 30 Time: 8:00 p.m. ET Location: Chicago, Illinois Venue: United Center TV Info: Comcast Sports Network, Spectrum Sports Network, NBALP Live Stream: NBA.com
