The Miami Heat will meet the L.A. Lakers on Sunday in the second game of ABC's doubleheader, following a match between the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics. Heat vs. Lakers should tip right around 3:30 p.m. ET. Following the game, ESPN will take over coverage with a night doubleheader.
The Lakers have won two games since the All-Star Weekend, while the Heat have split their two games, losing to the Utah Jazz on Friday. Sunday's game ends a three-game road trip for Miami, and marks the team's final game on the West Coast for this regular season.
The two teams have already met once this season. That game, played in Miami, saw LeBron James drop 31 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in a big Heat win. Miami also swept the Lakers last season, and sits at 3-0 against L.A. in the LeBron era.
