The Los Angeles Lakers host the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night to begin a six-game run at Staples Center. The Lakers will be the visiting team when they play the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday.
The most recent time the Lakers and Sixers met was in Philadelphia on Jan. 25, when the 76ers won 108-91 as the Lakers’ LeBron James scored 29 points to pass Kobe Bryant for No. 3 on the NBA’s career scoring list.
Against the Pelicans, James recorded his league-high-tying 13th triple-double – Dallas’ Luka Doncic also had 13 entering Monday – with 34 points, 13 assists and 12 rebounds to help the Lakers overcome the absence of Anthony Davis and fan favorite Alex Caruso.
