The Los Angeles Lakers will take on the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night as the Lakers continue to find their footing following a stuttering start to the season. The game is scheduled to tip off at 7 p.m. PT and can be watched online through free live stream by clicking on the link below.
The Lakers come into this game with a record of 6-5, and will be looking to continue their resurgence. They face a struggling Sacramento Kings team with a poor record of 2-8, and they will not be looking forward to this on the road trip to the reviving Lakers team.
With D'Antoni winning his debut on the bench in their last match, the re-energized Lakers team will look to hand out the Kings' sixth straight loss.
The Lakers named D'Antoni coach on Nov. 12 after firing Mike Brown following a terrible 1-4 start, which looked to undermine Los Angeles' season.
However, D'Antoni's debut was delayed as he recovered from knee replacement surgery, but he finally delighted fans by taking to the sidelines for Tuesday's 95-90 win over the Brooklyn Nets.
D'Antoni said, "With this team, there's no reason not to win every game. That's our goal. It's not, 'Let's get two out of three.' We can win every game we play. ... I feel like we're the best team in the league. We've got the most talent, so they can do what they want. We've just got to keep perfecting things."
The Lakers come into this game having won five of their past six games since Mike Brown's firing, and they should be able to continue that run today with another win.
Forward Pau Gasol, who has 17 points in each of the last two games, has said ahead of this game, "We're definitely playing with better flow. We're playing with more confidence, looser out there. We're playing together and moving the ball, just playing basketball and not really worrying about actions; just playing the game."
