ESPN will host a national broadcast of Monday’s matchup between the Denver Nuggets and the Los Angeles Lakers, with tip-off set for 10 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Staples Center in Los Angeles, and will also air on Spectrum SportsNet in the Lakers market.
If you aren’t around a TV to check out this NBA matchup, you can stream the game via WatchESPN or the ESPN app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access ESPN for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.
The Nuggets are in sole possession of third place in the Western Conference at 43-21, three games behind the Utah Jazz and Phoenix Suns. Denver won five games in a row including a 110-104 road win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night. Will Barton and Monte Morris remain out for the Nuggets, and reserve forward Zeke Nnaji is questionable with an ankle injury.
The Lakers need to start winning games to stay inside the top six in the West and avoid the play-in tournament. Los Angeles is in a three-way tie for the fifth best record along with the Dallas Mavericks and Portland Trail Blazers at 36-28. Despite the return of Anthony Davis and LeBron James, the Lakers lost three straight games and fell short in six of their last seven. Dennis Schroder is in the NBA’s health and safety protocols and will be out for Monday night’s game.
