Philadelphia 76ers v Los Angeles Lakers Live
After playing some solid basketball in December, the Sixers quietly made it back to the playoff race in the Eastern Conference, holding on to a 12-19 record. Thus, the Philadelphia 76ers will try to keep up their improved level of play when they meet Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday at 3:30 a.m. GMT.
Given the fact that the Lakers are the defending two-time NBA champions, there is no doubt that Kobe Bryant and company are by no means satisfied with the third place in the Western Conference up to this point. Especially back-to-back double-digit home losses versus the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat were a considerable setback last week as Los Angeles dropped to a 21-9 record. That said, the Lakers certainly have the individual talent to make a run down the stretch to compete for the first seed in the West. Especially forward Pau Gasol is having a terrific year, averaging 19.5 points, 11.0 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 2.0 blocks per game. Either way, the team around Kobe Bryant will be everyone’s favorites to clinch a victory versus the Sixers on Saturday.
