The Los Angeles Clippers and Sacramento Kings will battle in a Western Conference matchup on Friday. Tip-off time for this game is slated for 10 p.m. ET and the live television and stream information are below.
Los Angeles Clippers vs. Sacramento Kings
This will be the first of the three matchups this regular season between the two Pacific Division teams. The LA Clippers (8-4) are coming off a 111-106 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday, while the Kings (5-7) were beaten 132-126 by the Portland Trail Blazers on the same night.
Los Angeles has won two straight games coming into Friday’s battle and three of the last five games. On the other side, Sacramento has lost three of the last five and sits at the bottom of the Pacific Division standings.
Patrick Beverley and Lou Williams are listed as day-to-day for the LA Clippers.
Williams (hip) remains questionable for Friday’s game, while Beverley (personal) is also questionable for the game. With these two players slated to be out, Reggie Jackson and Terance Mann could see an uptick in their playing time against Sacramento.
Jabari Parker and DaQuan Jeffries are both listed as out for the Kings, while Buddy Hield (ankle) remains probable for the contest.
Hield has been dealing with a right ankle sprain, but has been playing through it in recent games. If the injury becomes more uncomfortable for Hield on Friday where he is forced to miss any time, Tyrese Haliburton could see an expanded role.
