What channel is Lakers vs. Mavericks on tonight? Time, TV schedule for 2021 NBA Wednesday game

LeBron James looks to continue his recent tear of impressive play when the Lakers visit the Mavericks Wednesday night.

Over his last eight games, James is averaging 29.8 points, 8.0 assists and 7.3 rebounds while shooting 52.0 percent from the field and 34.8 percent from 3-point range. In LA’s most recent outing, James finished with 30 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists and three blocks in a win over the Magic.

Now, James looks to make it three wins in a row for the Lakers as they visit a Mavericks team that will be without Luka Doncic for a third straight game.

As you would expect, Dallas isn’t quite the same team without their 22-year-old superstar. Up to this point in the season, the Mavs have posted a 2-4 record in Doncic’s absence, with the two wins coming over the Thunder and shorthanded Hornets in the past week.

Kristaps Porzingis stepped up for Dallas in its most recent win, finishing with 24 points, 13 rebounds and five blocks in 25 minutes of action. With Anthony Davis battling a sore knee and Dwight Howard entering the NBA’s Health and Safety Protocols, Porzingis has the opportunity to be a difference-maker in the front court for the Mavs.

Up to this point in the season, both the Lakers (15-13) and Mavs (14-13) have hovered around the .500 mark. Fortunately for both Dallas and Los Angeles, there is plenty to be sorted out in the Western Conference outside of its top three teams in the Suns, Warriors and Jazz.

Wednesday night is an opportunity for either the Mavericks or Lakers to earn a win that could be big for momentum as they gear up for their respective Christmas Day showcases next weekend.
