Lakers vs. Clippers: Lineups, injury reports and broadcast for Dec. 3

Here is what you need to know as the Los Angeles Lakers and L.A. Clippers face off in the battle of L.A.

The Los Angeles Lakers play the L.A. Clippers on Friday, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.

The Lakers (12-11) are in a good position to go two games above .500 after blowing out the Sacramento Kings without LeBron James. Now that James is back in the mix after clearing health and safety protocols, the Lakers can start building momentum with a healthier roster.

Head coach Frank Vogel said he intends to start Dwight Howard at center, but Avery Bradley’s status is probable. Wayne Ellington would make a solid choice at shooting guard with his shooting prowess.

The Clippers (11-11) have expectedly started slowly with Kawhi Leonard out recovering from surgery. Nicolas Batum has been out due to the league’s health and safety protocol, so Paul George has carried a heavy load thus far.

Eric Bledsoe hasn’t produced as the Clippers would’ve liked so far. Reggie Jackson’s scoring is up, but his efficiency is down. Terance Mann has put up solid games but hasn’t broken out as the Clippers hoped he would based on his play in the playoffs. This game could go either way, but the Lakers have the advantage.

The game was supposed to be broadcast on ESPN, but the network pulled it in favor of the Golden State Warriors-Phoenix Suns battle.

Here’s when you should tune in to see the game:
