Which channel is Lakers vs. Mavericks right now? Time to TV schedule for 2020 NBA Christmas recreation


LeBron James and the Lakers aim to continue their dominance against the rising Mavericks on Christmas Day at the Staples Center.

The defending NBA champions have apparently moved even further away from the pack this offseason, adding Dennis Schroder, Montrezl Harrell, Marc Gasol and Wesley Matthews, despite losing some valuable role-players like Danny Green and Rajon Rondo. Los Angeles also banned seven-time all-star Anthony Davis for the future and signed a five-year extension of $ 190 million. The Lakers are the current betting favorite to win the title in 2021.

Dallas may have finished seventh in the Western Conference rankings last season, but the Mavericks are poised to take the lead with Luka Doncic's continued growth. While Dallas didn't land a star this off-season, the Mavs traded in with former '76 security guard Josh Richardson and Stanford sniper Tyrell Terry to help Doncic on the sidelines.
