How to watch Lakers vs. Hornets: NBA live stream info, TV channel, time, game odds

Through 2 Quarters

We’ve seen some fireworks two quarters in as the Charlotte Hornets and the Los Angeles Lakers have combined for 123 points. Either team is in a position to win, but Charlotte leads 62-61.

Point guard LaMelo Ball has led the way so far for the Hornets, as he has 14 points and six assists in addition to four rebounds. One thing Charlotte has working against them is foul trouble: Nick Richards, Kelly Oubre Jr., and Mason Plumlee have all picked up some fouls.

Los Angeles hasn’t had any offensive standouts so far with all players held to 12 points or fewer.

This is the first time Charlotte has been ahead going into the third quarter in the past seven games.

What to Know

The Charlotte Hornets haven’t won a game against the Los Angeles Lakers since Jan. 5 of 2018, but they’ll be looking to end the drought on Monday. The Hornets might have tired legs after a contest yesterday as they head on the road against Los Angeles at 10:30 p.m. ET Nov. 8 at Staples Center. The point spread is more or less neutral, so fans should expect a close matchup.

The contest between Charlotte and the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday was not a total blowout, but with Charlotte falling 120-106 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. The top scorers for Charlotte were small forward Miles Bridges (21 points) and point guard LaMelo Ball (21 points). Miles Bridges’ performance made up for a slower matchup against the Sacramento Kings this past Friday.

Meanwhile, the Lakers ended up a good deal behind the Portland Trail Blazers when they played this past Saturday, losing 105-90. Los Angeles was down 93-62 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. One thing holding Los Angeles back was the mediocre play of point guard Russell Westbrook, who did not have his best game: he played for 29 minutes but put up just eight points on 1-for-13 shooting and six turnovers.

With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. Allowing an average of 117.64 points per game, Charlotte hasn’t exactly asserted themselves on the defensive end. We’ll see if they can patch up the holes in their defense before their upcoming matchup.
