The Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets play Wednesday evening, with tip scheduled for 10:30 p.m. ET. The game is a regional broadcast, so there will be limited viewing options available. If you’re in the Rockets market, the game will air on AT&T Sportsnet Southwest. If you’re in the Lakers market, the game will air on Spectrum SportsNet. The game will be available on the radio at ESPN LA 710/KWKW (S) and KBME/KTRH/S: KLAT.

If you’re looking for a live stream, it’s limited. The only option to legally live-stream the game will be through NBA League Pass.

There really isn’t much to go over with the Houston Rockets. The Rockets’ season has been done for months now after trading away James Harden and Victor Oladipo this season. Houston has lost six in a row and are basically just standings food for the Lakers. There are a few bright spots on Houston’s roster and one of them is Kenyon Martin Jr. He’s playing big minutes in May so far and has scored in double figures in every game, including three games of 20+ points.

The Los Angeles Lakers are expected to get LeBron James back in the lineup tonight vs. the Rockets. He’s missed the past five games after aggravating his high ankle sprain. James is expected to be 100 percent and ready to go for the postseason. This is a good spot for the Lakers to get James back in there against a Rockets’ team that likely won’t be too competitive. Don’t expect James to play a full allotment of minutes, but he won’t really need to.
